Just a regular Linux and oBSD guy... interested in security, functionality and fun. And world domination :-) I started a high-end consulting and services company in Luxembourg together with some really cool friends (such as adulau) ...

Well, I'm delighted to see that even The Register has an article describing how "Microsoft's anti-Unix campaign backfires"...

For more (but cheap and easy) fun, you can see here. Make your own decisions on the trustworthiness of all these sites of course.

WTF ? Microsoft is solidly becoming numero uno on my personal Fucked Company(TM) list. Why ? Go and read this Advogato article, and please don't forget to inform your local Microsoft representatives and government about how you feel about this (just be as polite as possible though !).

Yet another release of IPFC... The most important change is better modularization (viva OO perl programming ;-) ... Documentation, however, is still sorely lacking :-(

Unisys and Microsoft say, "We have the way out", and I wish them the best of luck on their way out.
Personally, I'd say we have the way IN.

The sun is shining and that's good news for once, what with all the shit going on in Israel and Afghanistan ... Jeez, why can't everybody just get along ? - give and take, that's what it's all about ... and, most importantly, nonviolence.

Last weekend I went to F*SDEM in Brussels. It's always nice to see RMS with a hard-disk on his head (no pictures, please ;-).

I did a more or less technical presentation on IPFC on saturday, which I put on my website http://www.fruru.com/.

We're working on getting some useful data abstraction layers in IPFC to allow people to use a stable programming interface to write their plugins to, but it's more difficult than first imagined (well what's new ;-) ...

In 1 to 2 weeks, IPFC 1.0.4 will be released, with a whole new database schema - to get maximum flexibility while keeping speed and space usage acceptable.

The car is doing fine now. No strange noises except for the usual ones.

Things are speeding up on the IPFC front. The frontend is advancing steadily ... I realise now that I'm not a web-developer at all... Alerting infrastructure is being put in place ... Things really are speeding up ;-)
But there is not only work ... soon there is the F*SDEM event, a splatterfest of Free Software things and people.
User-Mode Linux is giving me serious headaches, but I've found a new toy for my intra-server compartimentalization needs : vservers.
Tomorrow there are 2 important presentations to make, it's 1:36AM and I'm still not in bed. Life is tough.
Just FYI, it is possible to blow up a car's turbo, even without trying to do so and after only 14000km (less than 10000mi) ! Good for me (well ... the leasing company ;-) that the car is still under warranty !
