The university of Texas (Austin) sucks too.. They digitize their copy of the gutemberg bible for the world to see, then slapp the following legalese on the work :

"Further reproduction of any of the Gutenberg Bible images without the written consent of the Ransom Center is prohibited. Inquiries regarding the availability of higher-resolution digital images for research or publication should be directed to the Center's staff."

what the hell does that mean ?

Just came back from Avignon where I go during week ends (have to granny-sit...)

The trip there was total HELL, with all those tourists going in droves from northern europe to the riviera. At one point, I was stuck in a 30km long traffic jam.

now, on to projects...

Since last year, I have started the Navsys project, which has 2 goals.

  1. act as a car stereo and GPS application
  2. capture data for the Free World Road-Maps project

you can get the info about that really cool project on it's web page, at http://sxpert.esitcom.org/projects/navsys.

Well, let this be my first diary entry of all...
I am living for Dallas tomorrow and will be back on (normally, if all goes well) august 27.
Packing stuff takes a while (argh).
