Hardware who commit suicide

Today when I woke up I had discovered that my router (a wrt54g) stopped working. I was unable to ping it. so I decided to reset, reflash, even opening it (now my warranty is gone) to short-circuit 2 pins on the flash chip. nothing worked ... well the short-circuit kind of put it back in standby mode but I were unable to flash a new firware to it. so i got angry and I might broke something in it ... so now I got a very sexy 4-ports switch with 2 antennas ... so I managed to get my old home made firewall back online ... and if this one get rooted, it's my suspicions for the reason why my wrt54g stopped working I know how to fix it ... mkfs /dev/hdax :) It just bad I lost a full day trying to get it back online ... I must also say that this morning I was for the death penality for script kiddies ... and i still believe we might need to do 2 or 3 public executions to scare them out of our stuff, why they can do like all normal teenagers and watch porn and masturbating????

The Quest

Last week blogwar about porting kde to windows gave me some stuff to think about Which of the current linux distro can effectively replace windows. I don't want to start a flame war with this but is there someone who took the time and ask himself this question ... So i took some time this weekend to try to answer it and i found out that mepis might fill the requirement i have. 1) Test before you install 2) easy installation 3) keep the standard KDE experience ... do no try to reproduce windows. 4) let the users knowledge grow. 5) somewhat developer friendly. and yes the beta 2 of pro mepis got everything i wanted. and i know the person i have in mind when i this this test will be really pleased.

the flaw

All this reasoning about porting kde to windows will bring more people to kde linux is flawed. Granted it might bring some of them into linux or any unix for that matter but those are only those who like to experiment with new toys.The great majority of people doesn't like change in their life and believe me here when i say the keyword here is change For those who believe that they will change to linux because they have the applications on windows I ask you this: Did ever see what happens in an office when you change the wordprocessor from wordperfect 6 to ms office, or even something simplier than that Windows 95 to 98 to 2000? Users are lost! and some of them are even moronic enought to ask to have a course paid to help them use the new version of windows even if they use it for years, simply because it not the same version number, so they forget everything they know.

It's been a month

yup nearly a month since I lost my job. Let just say I take it with philosophy, meaning it's probably the occasion to get a better one, and I hope.
What I did in that month, first of all I spent time working on some of my biggest shortcoming, wrote 2 killer resumes (one in french, my native language and one in english), spent time to seriously learning German and Dutch (just for the fun of it) did some contract for previous customers, spent time to find the true love ...

yay!

I did this test http://bbspot.com/News/2003/01/os_quiz.php and here the result:

"You are Slackware Linux. You are the brightest among your peers, but are often mistaken as insane. Your elegant solutions to problems often take a little longer, but require much less effort to complete."

new computer

This weekend after wanting to have one for about a year, I finally got a laptop (iBook G4 12").

and my first reaction is WOW what a nice piece of hardware... after playing with macosx for about 45 minutes, the call of Linux was starting to be too strong ...
