New York

Slides of my Mono talk are available here. They are in the trusty text/mgp format. The material is a bit out of date, but this is what was submitted for being printed a couple of months in advance.

The show continues. Maddog likes my new camera (but I have not yet managed to get the flash settings just right).
That day later on Mauricio showed up at the show. We went for dinner to `Uncle Nicks' with Mancha and Patrick.
Despite being a long day, Nat and I had trouble sleeping, and went for a midnight snack on 5th avenue, close to our hotel.

There was a guy sleeping.

Columbia University

Did my talk at Columbia. Lots of interesting questions from the audience (some compiler students went, now if only they could email me ;-). Ben went to the talk!

I do not have any group pictures, but I will post some of the individual pictures.

Mancha and Patrick came to meet me to Penn Station.

Woohooo! Galeon, Evolution and new Mozilla are on Red Carpet!

I have switched from Mozilla to Galeon for my browsing needs. Funny fact: I installed Galeon to try their Smart Bookmark feature (where you get a Google toolbar entry and a Bugzilla toolbar entry) and never noticed that I did not miss Mozilla at all.

It uses the same Mozilla engine, but the GUI integrates much better with GNOME and it is a lot more responsive. The tabbed feature has gone from proof of concept to a fairly usable implementation and the auto-portal is really nice.

Interesting article on Gnumeric. It is written in Spanish.

It talks about GNOME-DB, the Basic support in Gnumeric and Guppi. Interesting overview.


I find the WinerLog funny. It apparently has a built-in 2-second delay in editthispage to discourage people from reading it.

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.

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