Random thoughts?

Almost everyone I know like to have their moment of “random thoughts”. I have it all the time. My mind is quite active, must I say (kind of Britannic, wow). When I started using Twitter, my first though was: wow, here I can place some of my random thoughts. However, recently I realized that I am spending more time twittering than blogging and since my blog sort of represent my thoughts, so I decided to write them here.

Through the post title you’re gonna notice: “Random thought #n”, where n is the number, duh! I’ve a cache of four, already written and just waiting to be “released”. Since almost no one reads this blog, my plan is to release them every two days. But this is just a plan, and will mostly depend on my mood, which is highly inconstant.

KDE 4.0

So today is the great release of KDE 4.0. And by the way, KDE 4.0 is meant to run on almost every platform including windows.

So what I did was to download the installer for windows and play a little with it. Below is Dolphin on Windows (the screenshot could be more exciting, but I’m kinda late for work).

OpenStereo Release 1.0.0

Again, I’m releasing OpenStereo. But today is a different day. I’ve done the first commit to OpenStereo google code site :D
And the best part: OpenStereo now features autotools support! Hooray!

Now, it’s only a matter of:
svn copy https://openstereo.googlecode.com/svn/trunk \
https://openstereo.googlecode.com/svn/tags/release-1.0.0 \
-m "OpenStereo release 1.0.0."

And voilá, a tag was created! :D
Also, uploading the tar.gz resulted from make distcheck

This release contains only official support for Linux. Support for Windows will come in sequence.

What a great coincidence!

Just when I start to listen to some Sigur Rós songs, QC publishes a strip containing a portrait with it. Awesome coincidence.

Rhythmbox, what a shame!

And I found that Rhythmbox was storing my personal Last.fm account in plain text! Switching to Listen immediately.

For this new year

Yeap, it’s 2008 already.

This year I’ll attend a master degree program at Center of Informatics. In the ranking of people accepted, I’m the 10th :D

And I’m trying to reach some goals until the end of that course. One of them is to learn German. Another is learn how to package thing for autotools and Ubuntu.

With no further sayings, have a great 2008! :)

Not late for work. Not today.

In my way to work, I faced the metro stuck. No the metro, but the buses on Barro Station were stopped from entering or leaving the station. Street vendors were impelled from selling things on station, so they have just made barriers on each station entrance. But at least I got work not so late (15min) and I won’t lose my whole day.
