So many things…

It’s been a long time I don’t post anything. So, here are some stuff I’ve been doing.


  • Coltrane (dudes, this is REALLY good!)
  • Miles Davis (two great albuns: “Bitches Brew” and “Time After Time”)
  • The Brand New Heavies (cool acid jazz)
  • James Taylor Quartet (one of the best acid jazz band)
  • Incognito (lots of groovie stuff)

After a short talk with kmaraas on IRC about GNOME and musician hackers, he created the GNOME Musician Index at l.g.o. GNOMusicians, add yourselves there, so, we can have a huge jam session at GUADEC 7!

EOG was crashing when navigating through a directory with invalid images. This bug is solved now. :-)


I’ve finished a little paper (in portuguese) about Free Software and Ciberculture. INHO, this paper is not good yet but the deadline forced me to release it.

Google Talk
Congratulations to Google for using jabber open protocol in Google Talk. My account is gmail com. Feel free to add me. :-)


  • Fantastic Four (horribleeee! crap!)
  • Before Sunrise (cool)
  • Sin City (great!)
  • Team America (good idea, no good content)
  • Million Dollar Baby (fantastic!)

GNOME Desktop Workshop
I gave a workshop on GNOME Desktop as part of FACED’s Free Software Week. I got very happy to see some teenagers from Alto das Pombas (a very poor place) in the workshop.

I looked for some ready-made slides for this purpose but I didn’t find any. Maybe I’d be good to have “official” slides for GNOME Desktop workshops.
