Back from the dead.

Yes, again, two months passed and noth­ing on the blog. What can I say, my life takes a lot of my time.

Any­way: I will try to ac­tu­al­ly write my PyQt tu­to­ri­al based on what I showed at Lati­noWare (I said "will write it in a few days". Ja!), and start push­ing things out ev­ery once in a while.

The on­ly FLOSS I did was some bug­fix­es for rst2pdf which is des­per­ate­ly need­ing a new re­lease.

Hope­ful­ly march will mean a bit more time for free soft­ware and writ­ing.

On oth­er ar­eas:

  • KDE 4.2 is re­al­­ly good. Beats 3.5 for me, like for most any­one else that was not con­vinced yet.

  • I want to try my hand at a cou­­ple of plas­­moids (yes, I do have at least one semi-o­rig­i­­nal idea)

So, see you soon, dear read­er­s. Maybe. Prob­a­bly.



Great for Lar­ry Niv­en fan­s, since it con­tains some odd stuff and some au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal notes, which I liked.

Crashlander (Known Space)


It's Lar­ry Niven, you know what you're get­ting. This book col­lects the short sto­ries that fol­low Be­owulf Sha­ef­fer, the pro­tag­o­nist of Neu­tron Star, and the on­ly man to go try reach­ing the core. If you like known space you know who I am talk­ing about.

Titans of Chaos (Chronicles of Chaos, #3)


It kin­da fiz­zles. The au­thor tries to top ev­ery­thing by just pil­ing things high­er, larg­er aries, more pow­er­ful greek god­s, it ends feel­ing like Drag­onball Z, in­clud­ing the con­stant "dy­ing".

Any­way, it was a fun se­ries.
