One of the greatest discoveries I’ve made after switching to the Linux galaxy is, without any doubt, the fantastic Restic; a backup tool that deserves to be better known and more widely used.

Fedora 38

In December 4th, 2005, I published my first blog post about Linux. I wrote it on Ubuntu 5.10 “Breezy” after installing it on my faithful iBook G3. Many years have passed, and I’ve become a full-time Linux user now, having used no other operating system in the past 5 years.

Macromedia Flash

For about 4 or 5 years, roughly from 1999 to 2004, Macromedia Flash was a big part of my career. I started making Flash movies for fun around 1998, but by 1999 I was already making them as part of my day-to-day job.


In the past few weeks I’ve been making quite a few changes to this website. Some are visible, some less. Among the visible ones, I removed the downloadable PDF files feature, which were taking a lot of space and weren’t really that useful.


I was surprised to discover recently that good old Redmine not only still exists in 2022, but it thrives in various unexpected ways.


I love Bootstrap. No matter which web frontend framework I try, I always end up returning to it.


Last week I was celebrating the 20 years of my Harman Kardon SoundSticks, but last Monday there was another anniversary that some of us celebrated fondly: EditPlus 1.0, released March 20th, 1998, is 25 years old!


Seeing Twitter becoming the Muskverse was the last straw that took me to revive the Mastodon account I opened in 2017 and leave Twitter for good.


I started using Windows 11 recently. It’s changed a lot since the last time I used Windows professionally (those were the times of Windows XP, almost 20 years ago).


GitHub, BitBucket, GitLab; they are not the only solutions available to share Git repos with your friends and colleagues.


Note taking is very important to me. I keep everything in my notes, from ideas for blog posts like this one, to code snippets, to web pages, to plans of never started businesses, and so much more.

Visual J++

Once upon a time, there was a programming environment made by Microsoft called Visual J++.


I am a big WordPress fan. And I do not suffer from the NIH syndrome.


ImageMagick is a cool toolkit; not only it's a complete set of command-line applications, ported to Windows, Mac and Linux, supporting hundreds of different image formats, it's also a C++ library that you can use in your own applications!

iPhone SDK: Une Nouvelle Ere Démarre

Il y a de moments clés dans l’histoire de la technologie.


As I said before, I like to learn a new programming language every year.


If you haven’t tried git, you should. Git is a “distributed version control” system, that is, similar to Subversion with the big difference that… you do not need a server.


Should you ever have to work on a web application again, just don’t think about it twice; Ext is an amazing piece of free software, light-years away from anything you’ve seen before.


I wrote a paper about QNX that you can download here.


Since I discovered Ubuntu I’ve been trying to install it in different hardware, in different computers, even in virtual machines, and I just love it.


After having received a comment from Steven Ross I saw in his website a reference to RadRails.


This is my first post from a brand new world.
