About Open Source...

Here in Brazil the topic Open Source is very popular. Everybody talk about Open Source at class, at work, with friends and so on... Including Brazil is one of reference in Open Source around the world. We have the fisl in Porto Alegre, that is one of major Open Source's event.
Ok this is an premise and nobody has doubts (I guess).

Some days a go I saw an article on the web very very similiar that an article writed by me. This is not the first time that I saw some copies of text, article and include sites! Well... I don't know, but my idea about open source is if I read something and extend the idea or show another side or put my opinion AND show the credits. Well it's ok. But... if I just used the idea and not show the author, well in my opinion this kind of work has another name...
If you has an idea to extend something or put another point. It's ok, share your point. But why don't reveal the credits???

I know there are a lot of open source licences, the most populars are GPL that is used for linux, CDDL used for OpenSolaris and the BSD that's used for FreeBSD.
An great iniciative is the creative commons iniciative that available flexibel license. You can read more here (in portuguese) :)

The table of equivalents

Ronaldo Prass, a guy of group post in his blog a cool link to a table of equivalents, replacement windows software in linux.
At tech-talks always have someone new in the \*NIX operating system who ask for your favorite software run in linux or OpenSolaris or FreeBSD or whatever. This table came a facility tool for everybody (users, developers, sys admin).
Tanks Ronaldo!

The great flood

"And one day God said to Noe: construct a big boat and put a couple of animals to preserve of the great flood. One thousand of days raining..."

God dosen't waring nobody (as I know), this time. But the big flood was send to Porto Alegre in this Friday. Raining the most part of day and the traffic was a big caos. People waset't going to the job, class was canceled and so on.
At cesup wasen't different, but we have one more problem. One of the pipes of the our air-conditioning was stuffiness. So you can imagine the problem...
The water start to fall for the walls of the center. Fortunately the water not access our cluster and everything was ok. It's just a fright.
The worst of the history is to take a bus to going to the campus in the rain and take 3 "showers of rain" just to go done a dummied test. Ok life going... (in portugues: Segue o baile...)
