Compactons, rain and coding style guides

Finally, I've chosen the subject to research for my DEA (the investigation that precedes the thesis of a PhD). The title is "Computational analysis of the propagation of compactons in non-lineal transmission lines". I don't know much about compactons yet, but I'm looking forward to start working on that.

KDE talk

I finally got to Castelló after a 1 hour and 30 minutes delay waiting to get in to the plane at the airport. Tomorrow (Saturday) I'll give a KDE user talk at the iParty, at 16:00 . I initially plan to show some apps in depth (as well as some "tricks" or "hidden features" on some of them). I'll show konqueror, kontact (+kolab), kopete, amarok, digikam, kimdaba, klick, kstars (to show how to see the sun eclipse that will be seen in Spain next monday) ...

The chocolate factory

This weekend I've been finally able to rest for a while. On saturday morning I went to get my car to be repaired but the person that I needed doesn't work on saturdays. On the afternoon I planned to send the aKademy awards to the winners, but it seems the post offices are closed on saturday afternoons... great. I'll send them on Monday afternoon after getting out of work.

The week after THE week

This week has been quite tiring. First, my boss didn't allow me to take Monday as a personal free day in order to clear up the things we left from the akademy at the university. The Monday started with a couple of "pressure" meetings with by boss (just him and me) explaining me why I should work harder than ever and blah blah. So I've only been able to clear up things from the akademy after work, on afternoon/evenings.

Everything good gets to its end

It's said that everything good gets to an end, and that's what happened to the akademy: Finally, it's over.

Celeste asked me during the party at the beach if I was glad the akademy was over, after thinking about it for a day, I should say I'm not. I'm glad the work is over, but I'd have liked it to continue for at least some couple of weeks with all of you here :).

My way

Well, I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to tell much of what I'm doing.

I've given 5 KDE talks in 2 weeks (3 one week, 2 at the next weekend). One in Tenerife at the Summer Courses of the "Universidad de Verano de Adeje", two at the Campus Party (in Valencia) and another 2 at Mollina, Málaga, into the second technological days of Free Software in Andalucia. I've met many people (some old good friends, some new friends), and everyone was great.

University residence at aKademy 2005 and more

Today I got a phone call from my university residence contact (a really nice and friendly person, btw). She told me that she was allocating the rooms everyone would get, but she had some problems...

Hi

Hi,

This is my first blog, and this is my first blog entry, so this can be considered a test... or not.

To add something interesting I'll say that in the following hours, we (we == the akademy team) will announce that the deadline for article submissions will be delayed a few days (just a few, so if you want to submit something, you better do it now).
