Talks, Alexandria, GNOME System Tools
April 19, 2005
On saturday I gave a talk about Hacker Culture at the Hélio Rocha College. My desknode didn’t work and I had to give up from my OO.o slides right on time of the session. Desknotes are terrible. I need to buy a tiny laptop to carry with me anywhere I go.
I found an amazing gnome app to manage book collections. It’s called Alexandria. With Alexandria, you can retrieve book main information by just providing its ISBN number. For this task, It uses some book info providers like Amazon and B&N. It was not translated to brazilian portuguese but now it is! :-) Now I’m the maintainer of the brazilian translation of Alexandria.
I’ve just begun to work on a simple patch to make Gnome System Tools give more than one auth trials. I think I’ll have some more time to work on it from now on.
