New stuffs

Here it goes another post with various topics and bullet lists. I realized I really appreciate this style of writing.

  • Project

    As Kenneth already posted, I've joined the Canola team since last week. I'll be working mainly in the infra structure code, dealing with ETK. It's API is quite similar to GTK+ but it's far far away in terms of maturity. I'm still getting used to it and I already have some ideas to improve it.

  • Cellphone

    After two years, I decided it was time to replace my good ol' Nokia 6170 cellphone. Besides being a very good device, solid (and heavy) as a rock, it lacks of some features considered basic nowadays, such as bluetooth and expandable memory. So I bought myself a brand new Nokia N73 phone. I've not even got the chance to explore all its features yet, but the very first thing I got impressed is the quality of the pictures taken with this phone.

  • Plush penguins

    During my trip to europe to attend GUADEC, I had the opportunity to buy another four penguins for my collection. One was a talking Pingu and the other one was that crazy Mexican penguin from the happy feet movie, called Ramon. The other two I bought at Lisbon Oceanarium shop. I'm now getting afraid there won't be room over my desk for the ones I may buy.

  • Hackergotchi

    Thanks to Hub, I've got a new hackergotchi from the picture he took at a pub in Birminghan. After clicking that special "I'm feeling lucky" button in Picasa and some Gimp work here is the result:
