Moved to a better/cheaper/larger apartment in the same cool area in London.
Perfect! After all the hassle of the move, we are really enjoying our new
home and neighborhood!
Work at litl is fastly and intensely moving forward.
So intense that I’ve been feeling a bit burnt out for GNOME stuff… I’m
trying to catch up with my long list of pending GNOME tasks now.
Really glad that we managed to come up with a plan for GNOME
3. There are still a lot of open
questions which I hope will be answered as we move on the schedule. Another
great move was our migration to git. We’ve got a
very positive atmosphere inside the community now. That’s awesome!
Cultural life in London simply rocks. I went to Stomp and Mama Mia,
concerts of Richard Bona, Bosco de Oliveira, Vanessa da Mata, Ben Harper, a
bunch of nice museums, parks, neighborhoods, open markets, etc, and planning
to go to many more! That’s something I really missed in Finland.
For some reason, my english accent tends to be a bit too American but I
like the British English
accent much more. I’m practicing my British English “Hello” and “So…” everyday. Maybe at
some point I’ll have a a perfectly pronounced “Hello” but then there are all
the other words to get the pronunciation right :-P
Traveled to the simply beautiful Prague
in March and to the weirdly amazing Amsterdam
some more uploads pending…) in April. More travels being planned, yay!
Got LittleBIGPlanet: fun, fun, fun. It’s
the only game my wife and I get to play together (as she doesn’t like to play
most of the games we have). So, it’s double fun for us.
Looking forward to getting a new DSLR camera soon. I’m getting very annoyed
by the unstable handling and the small viewfinder of my Canon 350D. I’ve
heard Canon 450D has some good improvements over the 350D but I’m leaning
towards a Canon 40D… Suggestions for camera models, places to sell my used
camera, and stores with good deals for new cameras are welcome.
Two awesome apps I started to use recently: GNOME
Do and Miro.

Stanton Moore, Ben Harper, Clube do Balanço, Black Rio, a lot more. Actually,
I feel it’s time to renew my music collection with some new albums…
I’m in Twitter now. It took some time
until I got the point of microblogging. So far, it’s been an interesting
That’s all for now. Time to sleep.
