Automatix for Ubuntu 8 is dead

Today I read on the GetAutomatix Forum that Getautomatix for Ubuntu has been discontinued. That's sad news since we were all pretty used to it. Everything outside-the-box was installed with a single click and was a great improvement for the end-user experience. Now I can only hope that someone will resume the development with a new project. These guys are now working only for the distro...



Gestión de la batería en Macbook, con SmartSleep

Si quieres ahondar más en el ahorro de energía de tu mac, en vez de de conformarte con las opciones por defecto del sistema, puedes instalar SmartSleep.prefPane. Una utilidad que te permite configurar qué debe hacer el ordenador cuando está inactivo, pero teniendo en cuenta la batería restante.

Exitazo de la primera PHP Barcelona Conference

Pues sí, el sábado 23 de Febrero celebramos la primera PHP Barcelona Conference, y fue todo un exitazo: de participación, de organización (no se nos descuajaringó la agenda), las instalaciones (Bocanord) eran fantásticas así como los medios que pusieron a nuestra disposición; la mejor sala del complejo, un equipo de proyección de cine y buena voluntad a raudales.

Por mi parte,...

Moving to a Macbook core 2 duo

I have owned 5 laptops for the last 6 years, which are a lot of laptops if you ask me... From a Toshiba Satellite with DSTN screen, going next to an IBM Thinkpad 600x and owning only macs since then: Powerbook G4 550 titanium, Powerbook G4 1Ghz 12" and, since yesterday, a shinny (second handed) Macbook 2 Core Duo.

All those machines were bought second handed and sold consequently. I have been...


Good news for Christmas

Well, this has not been a good year overall for me, but it seems it might end a little better than it started...

FIATC, my burned car's insurance company is doing a straight good job, so I will get a fair compensation for my car's lost, hopefully over the next week. Hurrah! Now that it seems 70% of the cash invested in my poor 2 years old Honda Civic is going to be restored, I am looking for...


Burned out

Sadly, the subject of this post is not related in any way to the console game. Following is the actual state of my beloved car (as of beautiful, useful and non problematic), a 2005 Honda Civic which always worked like a charm.

The Civic was correctly parked in front of my house when yesterday at 3am the car next to him started burning and the flames took by assault my car as well: this is...
