Ok. so I'm being a bit lame about diary entries. Oh, well.

Life: I am do­ing strange things late­ly. I can now read the pa­per while stand­ing on the sub­way, feat I be­lieved to be be­yond my reach. And the line was ex­tend­ed to a new sta­tion 2 blocks away from my ap­part­men­t, so I now walk some less, and have 12 min­utes more sleep each night.

I have a bor­rowed 3"tv. It's kin­da nice, af­ter over 2 weeks of tv-­less ex­is­tence.

I read "The dis­pos­sessed", by Ur­su­la K. LeGuin. Nice book. I read it in en­glish, be­cause it cost­ed me $5.50, while the span­ish ver­sion cost­ed $12 (both pa­per­back­). No idea why.

A word of ad­vice: If you ev­er need to get a le­gal au­tho­riza­tion from an­oth­er coun­try to al­low you to sign checks in the com­pa­ny ac­coun­t, and you need it very fast, well, it will not work too well. What? That's no ad­vice? I sup­pose. Or the ad­vice would be: don't get your­self in that po­si­tion :-)

I got a very func­tion­al KDE2 run­ning! There are mi­nor nig­gles all around (like need­ing to run kbuildsy­co­ca once by hand, ver­ti­cal max­i­miz­ing not work­ing right, and so on).

I can't build arts and kof­fice, but that's pret­ty mi­nor right now.

I am do­ing some mi­nor work in krn, and in­ter­view­ing peo­ple for a po­si­tion that would, in prac­ti­cal terms be my boss. That IS strange.

Al­so in­ter­viewed a guy that has pret­ty nice aca­dem­ic back­ground (mas­ter in Japan, stud­ied in the Bal­seiro in­sti­tute, per­haps the best hard sci­ence place in Ar­genti­na) to join the com­pa­ny, he should be use­ful (even if he wants to be­come a sales­man for some strange rea­son :-)
