BLARG! Yesterday I tried to install RedHat7.1 on my testing machine (the old pentium 70mhz one) and I found out that disc2 is needed as well... or at least on my installation. DAMN! I'm now downloading seawolf-i386-disc2.iso , 13% right now (ODD number ;P )

Well, today I went to see a movie at the theather, a movie called "Evolution", with the guy from X-Files, Julianne Moore and a couple of screwed-heads... the contents of it were pretty much irreal, so the one thing that stood up was the comedy itself, well, not really comedy, instead, the dumbness of the characters. I'm going to read some book on C socket programming... i'm trying to, at least!

Well, here I am from a well suceeded lunch with a bunch of linux geeks. I took some snapshots of the gang, maybe later I'll upload it to www.helian.org, who knows...

I write this at 0:52 in the morning. Altough I consider this still part of the 6th of July it's now the 7th. Tomorrow (7th) I will go to Lisbon, I hope it rocks the meeting with a bunch of cool people.=)

Tomorrow will rock! Tomorrow, Saturday the 7th, there will be a lunch&dinner at Lisboa (Portugal) with a bunch of cool people. I will have to wake up very early, because I'm going by train with a friend from Aveiro. We will arrive home after midnight for sure.

Today I'll prepare the stuff I'll have to take on with me, like, money, ID, informations about the train travels... that sort of stuff.

Finished! I'm officialy on vacations! Don't have to study till next school year! Hopefully I'll enter in University. My first choice would be LESI, Licenciatura em Engenharia de Sistemas e Informática at Uminho, University of Minho. It seems to me that at Uminho there are great folks and a lovely course. Second choice might be LEET, Licenciatura em Engenharia de Electrónica e Telecomunicações at Ua, University of Aveiro or Engenharia Informática at University of Coimbra... one never knows:P

Today I'll have to study to DGD (Desenho de Geometria Descritiva) because I'm going to the exam tomorrow. The last!!! --- Later... I can't study at all! This prime feeling of early vacations surpasses me hence the lack of study:( ... but I'm not going to whine, because this exam is pretty much easy enough.
