hard time... Why not 36 hours? I'm in love. Ibook is very cool. My son. I'm happy because I found a j2re for ppc. Here a script to install it and create a sim link to mozilla e firefox (ps: not tested!!):

Yeahh!! Finally my ibook arrived!! More than one month waiting... So, I'm downloading Debian PPC netinst to install tomorrow in my ibook. For a great hardware, the best OS. I'll write news about this on next days. I intend to write a howto about installing Debian in ibook for brazilians users that can't read in english. I'm very happy, it's is my first portable machine, I never had a notebook or something like this... I don't sleep today.

II Festival Software Livre da Bahia

So, how can I say in english... The Second Free Software Festival of Bahia. It'll be the second edition of the great free soft festival in Bahia, Brazil. You can know more on the great URL: http://festival.psl-ba.softwarelivre.org

I'm not a organizer of this event (the day doesn't have 36 hours), but I've helped my girlfriend in its conception (do this word exists?). Today I´ve written the (*&@#!) caption project, if you are interesting about it, help us! We need sponsors, money! :o)

I've decided to create a mailing list about Telecentros. Telecentros are 'telecenters', free internet cafe to provide public access for people that can't have a per$onal computer. Here in Brazil this culture is growing up, and this is my job. I'm working on the project of Secretaria de Ciência, Tecnologia e Inovação do Estado da Bahia. The people of Governo Eletronico of Sao Paulo have help us here at Bahia. Of course free software are used in this project. We'll have about 217 Infocentros (same Telecentros) until the end of 2005. All running Debian + Gnome working with LTSP. But the subject here is about the list. The deal is integrating people that works with Telecentros/Infocentros projects. Maybe create a community about this subject, with website, etc. Just ideas...

APT-HOWTO pt_BR translation finished

UFA!!(in brazilian language) :o) Kov has written a excellent howto about APT. Now he's working on version two. Kov is a brazilian guy but decided to make this version in english for translation facilities. It's a good idea. There are collaborations for it, ru, fr (and pt_BR, of course :o)) until now.

Apt-howto is still in developement, soon we have it avaiable in Debian package. You can look the actually development version on Debian SVN.

I've lost my key pair again... :o(

So I updated my public key in mentors.debian.net. My address also have changed to tiago at debian-ba.org, you can find my key at http://pgp.mit.edu/.

I used to work in bbclone deb package. I'm going to work again in debian mentors.

Two po-debconf translations today...

It's difcult, I don't have time for helping these translations as I would like :o( so today I could translate netselect and fix some bugs in hddtemp. As I sad before, it's a very good exercise for my bad english and of course, useful for all :o)

My first post here!

So, what to say? Today I'm working in the Infocentros Project (I'll talk about this many times here). My problem is about the usage of the kernel-2.6 in LTSP servers. Well, it's not realy a problem, but a doubt about the performance in kernel-2.4 with fairsched. I still don't know what the better option: 2.6 or 2.4-fairsched... I'll continue trying.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
