Claudio I’ve received the same SPAM from GNUCHILE a couple of days ago, mail in question is available here , if you look to the link at the bottom of it there’s something like “Si desea bloquear su correo para no recibir avisos de ningun tipo, haga click aqui” (If you want to block your email address in order to not receive any news, click here), I was looking to the page and there’s no way to “unsubscribe” your email from that “list” and well i didn’t even subscribe to it in the first place. I have to say that I’m really really disappointed on how the GNUCHILE guys are working, they don’t seem to understand anything. Anyways, can you please stop doing this kind of things? And please unsubscribe me of the cute list of emails to be spammed, kthxbye.

Update: Oscar Valenzuela (Director of GNUCHILE) blogged about it here. They still don’t get it.

5 al día

February 26th, 2008 by pedro

If you read Planet Ubuntu you’ll see a few posts about “5”, the 5 a day initiative it’s a really way to start contributing to Ubuntu and the Free Software in general and I’ve always had the impression that  some of GNOME related packages (ie: Anjuta, Banshee, Beagle, etc) at Universe  aren’t  getting a lot of their bugs triaged, that’s why since a few day ago I’ve started to do “5 a day” on them and I hope to have them in a good state in the short term. By the way as commented on my previous post I’ll be around Lima at the end of next week and it seems to be the perfect time to start doing some 5 with the local people, if you’re interested  on it just come by the conference place and let’s do some 5 together!.

Get Involved!

February 26th, 2008 by pedro

Involucrate (Get Involved) that’s the name of the Peruvian conference I’m going next week, Diego Escalante Urrelo invited me to give a couple of talks, as the conference name says it’s a really good place where to talk to people and get more involded on Free Software projects,  If you’re close to Lima those days you *have* to go, It’ll be really great


Thanks a *LOT* to the GNOME Foundation for sponsoring the event (my flight included) :-)
