No Internet

If you haven’t got any post from me recently is because, I got NO INTERNET. Romtelecom, the local telephone company decided that they haven’t been payed for long enough and pull the plug off on our phone.

The issue is that now I have about a steep $400 dls bill :S

On other news is that my ISP change PHP version and produced mayhem on my web apps including this blog as well as Gallery.

OOoForum is a Gold Mine

OOoForum is proving to be a Gold Mine, having a lot of development, snippets, tips and tricks and just general valuable input from their users I have found interesting development.

I recently found this two interested OOo developments. The one from the blibliographic project which is currently hosted in sourcefoge.

The other development is the PyOpenOffice which transform SXW to PDF files without the need of having OpenOffice.org installed.

Both developments look pretty cool.

OpenOffice.org is Here!!!

This has been a very personal blog so far, but starting from now I will put more relevant interesting blogs about my experience in the OpenOffice.org Project. As I engage in more projects and my experience reading other people blogs increase my criteria about blogs this topic is a long time overdue.

Looking forward, I plan to put experience with the OpenOffice.org ES community, the SpreadOpenOffice.org community, Marketing, INGOT, Education, Art, and Overal discuss community.

Hope this blog become more interesting to their readers and motivate them to click that RSS.

Sweet/Sour Weekend

Is the final minutes of a sweet/sour weekend. A weekend where I really wished I could have gone to my gf place and see some family-oriented, Romanian costums.

The weekend seemed to be quite laizy and also active. I finally broke the spell of being here in Bucharest and finally left to the sea-side. Definetly not my first choice but also the strongest one. I went to see a quite famous group in Romania called Parazitti.

I first knew about them a while ago, when I started chatting in undernet and talking with Romanian girls. They were all craizy about the group and finally started sending me some of their music.

When I got here it seemes everyone know them and they seem pretty ok. My friend invited me to check them out and the place was really cool, sea-side, food, lots of people. It looked like a fair in some regards, and then there was the concert on a relative small place with relative small amount of people but at the end it was very enjoyable.

The problem was about the way romanians have been with me. In this case the girl who was my hostess really forgot about me and start making out with everyone in the place… thats everyone except me.. so of course I got really jealous/annoyed.

At the end she pretty much forgot about me and I was left to talk with their uninspiring friends. It could have been a nice trip but at the end it was fucked up.

Another thing happened on the weekend was the Easter celebration which was interesting. I dont like to go to this churches but I appreciate the cultural value of it and it was fun having all this people lighting candles.

Finally I also did a movie weekend where I saw many movies quite fun and interesting so at the end I end up doing quite a bit of everything. I even configure my xfce desktop even more and learn some stuff about OpenOffice.org Extensions.

Being honest about collaboration

So ghost start hunting me again, I get this feeling about my true collaboration to the free software community. I don’t put in doubt my positioning on managing the community, but I do give a great deal of slacking regarding the actual work I have done to OOo.

I haven’t make other video in quite a while, I add myself to the art project and even if I am prompt to reply I haven’t did any drawing. So also make me think about my artistic skills.

So I hope I can get myself awoken and start doing some collaboration soon. I think I should put some target goals. And do them.

Getting into troubles

Sometimes I wonder how I get into troubles and wana get off the painful way. Sometimes I get angry and then all things falls appart. Regardless of that sometimes I actually like to inflict pain on myself when I know something will get me more screwed and I just keep on pushing it. This just happened right now but for some reason I want it to keep it like that. I dunno why I did it but I guess I just like the argument.

I guess is the feeling of being powerless regarding something and the frustration transform into anger and then you just want to start hurting somebody.

This time I pull off not before doing a pretty good mess. It could be worst, I agree but still a mess that I will have to clean up. Oh the drama.

PyUNO in OOo 2.0

Cool, PyUNO seems to be well alive and kicking… The new scripting framework seems to talk about the new abilities of PyUNO making it more manageable to end users and hopefully bring it more to the light.

I plan to read a bit more about the code and examples of this interoperation between Python and UNO. I also wish to review the way UNO has evolve in 2.0. Maybe even enrich my Python knowledge.

Case of the GF

So more drama with the gf, I am getting tired of this. A new fight stirr yesterday after I gave some x comment about the life here and the way people are, the funny thing is that I didn’t said anything that she hasn’t already told me before. But since it came from me, I am the evil guy.

So I am not sure why or how but it seems that she don’t dig me because I think the way she thinks.

Well she said something that I am totally on another channel so I am breaking my head now checking what I said that might had set the fire. It seems there is somehting I am not even seen right now. Oh well. Let see how it goes.

Eventually I will be alright but, oh god the drama…

Raging against their development

So it seems that OpenOffice.org is raging against the development process and the way the community hasn’t really got into the development. Sun as a foreign company to the true open source ways also face a stuck in their development as many companies haven’t jump in of fear of the control freak Sun has proven to be.

Now we also got the other development branch from Debian and Ximian building the OpenOffice.org into integrating modularizing and optimized the code to run on free softare and to get innovative features that just open source community can provide.
