Just purchased a new camera: the Fuji FinePix 6800.

Time to hit reload and see when is it going to be delivered.


I had breakfast with Eben Moglen this morning.

You can read an interview with Chema here. Chema is not only in charge of our Mexico City development office, he is also in charge of the desktop team at Ximian.


It has been a while since I have updated the status of Mono here. Mono has been doing an enourmous ammount of progress

Using statement is finished, hundreds of small bugs fixed as well. Did some hacking on the JIT engine, entertaining.

Top level order at CNN to downplay civilian deaths in Afghanistan.

I found the link at

Hunger starts to strike in Afghanistan

As stated by those informed (Chomsky also brought this up in his MIT talk) hunger in Afghanistan among refugees is starting to make its toll with many civilian deaths.

"She hadn't eaten anything for 10 days," Baran said. "We have no tent, either. She froze to death last night."

Baran brought his family to this camp outside the city of Herat 10 days ago from Badghis. Like hundreds of other families at Maslakh, which means "slaughterhouse," they have no shelter and are not yet eligible for food distributions.

These people do not have to worry anymore about the evil Taliban inflicting pain on them. They have been liberated and released from these evil-doers. These people thank the bombing for releasing their souls from the evil oppression.

Ximian Mexico

Went today to the Ximian Mexico offices and met with Israel, Javier, Tambet (who is visiting town), Chema, Arturo. Federico was missing as he spilled coffee on his keyboard.

Chema and I went to La Buena Tierra for an early dinner, and then across the street for some coffe. Very good location picked for the Ximian offices in Mexico.


Went out with Mancha, Arturo, and Cynthia to Los Bigotes de Villa.

Implemented the base operator in Mono. While writing the test suite I ran into another piece of the compiler that I have neglected and have to start working on (mostly visibility issues).


Today I was a guest at the Zona Libre a radio show that talks about Linux in Mexico City and broadcast from the University.

We had a lot of fun: Mancha, Arturo, Natorro and I were there, together with a bunch of guys that run this volunteer radio organization.

They have Pictures of the show, and you can also get the Audio (in spanish) and the IRC log

Flew to Mexico City, Arturo picked me up at the airport.

Later that night we had dinner at El Cambalache (Mancha's favorite meat restaurant).

Mono-C# compiler

Finally finished all the switch statement. The only bit missing now is `goto default'.

Working on airplanes is excellent. I love working without a network connection to distract me.

Back from New York at 1pm. The train from New York to Boston is pretty nice. You get to go to the coffee wagon, chill, get a spacious seat and they have AC power plugs for laptops.

I hug out all day with Mauricio. We mostly went restaurant and coffee hoping all day until it was time for the Jaguares Concert.

We ran into a few other friends at the concert, it was pretty good, but I had the feeling that the singer was in some kind of rush to finish singing a song. I might go see them again in Boston on December 15th.
