I'm yet another linux enthusiast and I've worked at Conectiva Inc. for two years as a developer. Now I have no job, so I can spend a lot of time in my personal projects and I still have enough time for sports (aikido, kendo, tennis, paddle and swimming), recreational activities and short trips. The bad side of being an unemployed guy is that nobody pays you to be unemployed, so you can't live the life for long. This is kind of a paradox, because if you live your life, you end up dying by starvation or something in a few months (unless you're rich or you're a boss, and that's not my case). :-)
Yet this year I'm hopefully going to become a certified Padi Divemaster, the first professional grade in diving. With some luck someone will pay me to live in Bora Bora, guiding rich tourists twice a day... </dream>

I finally got some time to work on my personal projects. I've seen some people interested in via lately and I've released a -pre version of via so these people can download it. Maybe you can give it a try too, but use it at your own risk. :-) You can download via here.

Hi! Yet again, a long time without posting anything... maybe advogato crew would like to change my "diary" to "annuary" or something like this! :-)
I've finally updated my notes (see above if you want).
I've worked a lot in my personal projects since past month, when I [was] left [by] my job during another big layoff at Conectiva. I hope to release the first version of Seis yet this year. There are some other releases to do, as soon as I finish their documentation (I hate doing this, that's why it's taking so long).

Great! via is there! :-) As soon as I finish some documentation I'll release a -pre version.

Wow! Finally I got some free time to work on my projects. It's been a long time since my last entry here, but there isn't many "O.S. news" since then, unfortunately. All I can say is that I've resumed working on Seis again, and I started a new project called via.
Regarding Seis, I've changed some core issues in its design. All data is now handled by "Reactive Cross-Linked Directed Graphs" (tm) (a.k.a. directed graphs with triggers) :-). Also, player code don't need to call or maintain a frontend object now. It means that you can focus on writing good IA for you bot-player and you get it working on your preferred interface for free! :-). Of course, if you want it to be interactive, you will have to call frontend methods (it is obvious). I can say that everything but the game itself is already written and tested :-) The game code is still "Under Construction"(tm), but I think I'll have a beta out in 5 to 8 weeks. It will be an excelent game and a nice tool for some Genetic Programming research. :-)
Via is another (small) project that's almost finished (I'll probably release a beta today). It's purpose is to allow you to have multiple configuration profiles (both user-based and system-level) and let you select one (manually or test-driven) at boot time. It's something very useful for notebooks, and I've been using it for more than 3 months by now. As an example of why you'd like such thing: I use my own notebook to work on Conectiva and to do my stuff at home. At Conectiva I use DHCP to get an IP address, need to fetch my emails from its internal email server (it can't be seen outside Conectiva's network), I must use its email server to send every email, my browsers must use its proxy server, and so on. At home, I have static IP address, my own DNS server, my own email server, my personal email accounts, I want to fetch my personal emails only when I'm home (and work-related emails only when I'm working), I'd like to have a different set of applications starting up automatically, and so on. Changing my notebook configuration every day would be a PITA; making my own network resembles Conectiva's would be a PITA squared (and that would not work if I had a third place to plug my notebook at). So, that's what via came for. Via solves all these problems and many other ones! In future releases, it will also solve the hungriness in the world!!! :-) (Mmmmkay, I noticed you're interested in it and you don't know where to get it. By now, send me an email. Soon I'll put it avaliable on the net, probably at SourceForge).

Today I released UCLA 0.1. It's far away from achieving the objectives it's been designed for, but it is somewhat usable by now, and I'd like to get some feedback from the comunity about it.
