Latex

Yolanda and I bought a mattress made in latex, convinced by some friends who told us
it was great and that they were happier since they had bought it. After a few months
beta testing the mattress, I finally came today to the conclusion that it’s a piece
of shit. I haven’t slept well for all that time, with regular pain in the back in the
morning, and regular wake ups at crazy times (like this morning, at 7 AM, after having
gone to bed at 3 AM, and believe me, I am a champion when it’s about sleeping). The pity
is that we gave away the good ol’ mattress where we slept like kings, so we are going
to have to buy a new one, fortunately much more cheaper than the latex one.

So, conclusion: if you want latex in your life, make sure you use it only for document
processing, or, as Ismael pointed
out on IRC, for sex accessories.

Open Source Games

Just read OS News’ article
about not enough open source games
, and, what a coincidence, yesterday Juan Nieto,
from La Rioja LUG, announced version 0.2
of his Pelota game project,
written in Python, and, of course, open source. Isn’t this original enough? I don’t think there
are Pelota games out there, not even in the proprietary market, so again, Free Software
also innovates!
