This is my old VPS and I won't renew it.

Host: naboo.vpsland.com
User: root
Pass: root
OS: Debian sarge.

Use ssh!

You won't be able to add users or change the root password. If you discover how then you deserve it ;-)


وداعا 2005

ساصر على الكتابة بالعربية هذه المرة

عام 2005 لم يكن عاما عاديا بلنسبة لى
بل كان مشحونا بالاحداث و النجاح و الفشل و القلق و الحزن و ...

لا مش هاكتب فصحى
عايز اعبر عن نفسى احسن

على مستوى العمل التطوعى و البرمجيات الحرة

رحت الهند اول السة للمشاركة فى معسكر TTC كممثل عن عربايز بالرغم من عدم كونى عضو فى الفريق التنيمى

شاء القدر بعد ذلك ان انضم الى الفريق التنظيمى و لكننى قررت تركه بعدها بعدة اشهر بعد ان فاض بى

المهم كنت ضمن الفريق الذى يحاول نقل خبرات اقلمة localization البرامج الى لحارين

مهرجان البرامج الحرة و التنمية الذى قامت بتنظيمه مجموعة مستخدمى جنو لينوكس مصر بالتعاون مع مركز مجتمع المعرفة و ذلك بعد المساعدة فى انشاء مركز الكمبيوتر المعتمد على البرامج الحرة فى منشية ناصر

التنمية العربية و تجربة التعاون مع الجامعة لتدريس جنو لينوكس

مؤخرا حاجتين
ساطير الى اوغندا فى غضون ايام للماركة فى معسكر ممال لما كان فى الهند لكنه خاص بافريقيا
و قبل ذلك الاجتماع التحضيرى لحدث مماثل فى المنطقة العربية

حضرت ايضا الانحسار الخاص بمجموعة جنو لينوكس مصر بالرغم ن محاولة احاءها بيوم اللينوكس فى شهر سبتمبر لكن اعترف اننا فشلنا هذا العام فشل ذريع!

رحت الاردن فى شهر 7 اللى فات اتكلم هناك عن البرااامج لحرة و عن حالة البرامج من حيث الاقلمة

طب اكتب شويه عن نفسى
انا من الناحية التقنية اعتقد غير انا من سنه فاتت مش هاقول تفاصيل اكتر علشان ماحدش يزهق

بس السنة دى شهدت تحول foolab.org و home.foolab.org الى امتدادات شخصية لى و الربط بين الاثنين اصبح اكثر

اذكر فى احد الايام كنت امر بعدة مشاكل فى نفس الوقت و كانت القشة التى قصمت ظهر البعي هى مشكلة على السيرفر

المهم

تقنيا انا ممكن اكو ابتديت اعمل حاجا مبهرة لنفسى بالرغم من انها ليس لها تاثير كبير

كنت شغال اول السنة فى IT Synergy و انتهى بى العام فى OpenCraft و الفرق بين الاثنين شاسع بدون الدخل فى تفاصيل لان هذه اسرار عمل

المؤسف انىتركت IT Synergy و انا كاره لها
ما اقدرش انك انى اتعلمت كتير منها "مش تقنيا" لك كاسلوب تعامل و تصرف و حياة بالرغم من ان هناك اشياء لم استطع تطيقها و ادت الى فشل التجربه لكن اقدر اقول ان التاثيرات الايجابية كانت كتير و الكثير منها اثر فى فلسفتى الخاصة فى الحياة " التى اكتشفت كم هى ربة بعدها بعدة شهور!" كثير من المواقف كانت تحدث و كانت تتطلب تحليل ليس على مستى العمل فقط و انما على المستوى الشخصى ايضا
شكرا يوسف بالرغم من تالم لفقدك كصديق لكا اسعدنى اللقاء معك بالامس لانى قد بدات استعيدك مرة اخرى... و كفى!

من الناحية الانسانية OpenCraft اجمل

حد اهم الاكتشافات هى ان "الفلوس مش كل حاجة" فى فرق كبير ان الواحد يكون عارف كده نظرى و انه يجربه عملى

المحطة اللى قبل كده كمان كانت فى الهند
الاقى نفسى فجا لوحدى فى مكان من غير تشجيع من احد بالرغم من ان كل شىء يتحرك بالقصور الذاتى"
لا اتعلمت كتير يمكن حاجات م قادر اوصفها بس خبرة فى التعامل مع الناس وفى نشر البرامج الحرة و فى بناء مجتمعات
خبرة غريبة

ى مارس كان مؤتمر البرامج الحرة و التنمية و وقفت اتكلمت امام 80 مستمع
حاجه عمرى ما عملتها و اكيد دى ساعدتنى فى الاردن و خليتنى يوم اللينوكس اقف من نفسى و اشرح للناس تاريخ الجنو لينوكس و اكلمهم ليه هو مهم.

فى مارس كمان كانت اول مره اعيط من فوق السنة لما خلص فضلت ماسك نفسى بالعافيةلحد لما وصلنا عن علاء و انفجرت فى البلكونه
كرهت كل حاجة الدنيا و العيشة و الشغل و ابرامج الحرة و كل حاجه
ياس تام لانى مش ممكن اشوفها تانى
و لما شفتها بعد كده بشهور اكتشفت انه مش نافع. او نافع مش عارف لحد الان
افتكر ان تانى يوم كنت هافرقع فى اى حد يقترب منى فى المرتين

اكتشفت بعد كده انى حرام ارتبط بواحده لان مع الاسف شايف انى مش ممكن اسعدها. و دى برضو عملالى شكله
دى مشكله هاتفضل كتير لحد ما اعرف احلها

2005 يا 2005 ايه تانى ؟
قررت ان ابدا مشروع لبرمجة مدقق املائى عربى ر لان مع الاسف واضح ان مش هايتعمل لو انا ماعملتوش
انا حبل افكارى انقطع
كفاية كده



طبعا ده عزبى فمش عارف اتكلم ;-)

[01:24] <BooDy> MSameer, kick yourself
[01:24] <MSameer> xfree: i did ask him to arrange something for him, but i's very obvious tht he doesn't need that hep
[01:24] <MSameer> BooDy: nop, this is not a violation
[01:26] <MSameer> SmartUnix: and i guess that the best thing you should do is to ask the pink dragon what you should do every day when you wake up, I'm sure that by following his answer - which is something I doubt - you'll be a better person or at least more usefl if not to yourself then it'll be to the surrounding environment
[01:28] <SmartUnix> ok , thank you for this advice :)
[01:31] <SmartUnix> and thanks for the great method :)

Katoob releases.

Submitted by msameer on Fri, 04/11/2005 - 7:37am

Unless I change my mind later, Which is not going to happen IMHO, I won't release a new version of Katoob.

I'll silently take a CVS snapshot and upload it to debian. I'll also keep such releases here.

This means that if you want to follow up with it you have 3 options.
1) Switch to debian.
2) Regularly update your CVS snapshot and build your binary or watch the above directory regularly. I'll also announce it here.
3) Get someone to build you a packag for your distro.

Now why is that ?
I'm lazy.
I don't feel like tagging the CVS, Generating tarballs, Building a debian package, Uploading all this to sourceforge and creating a release, Updating the freshmeat record, Emailing both the arabeyes developer and announce mailing lists,Wait for the announce to be approved. Update te arabeyes project page and link to the announcement email.

Islam is using Gentoo, He's already compiling from source for phaeronix.

Debian users are handled fine ;-)

Mandrake/Mandriva users ? May god help them ;-)

What a day!

Submitted by msameer on Mon, 24/10/2005 - 5:03am

Quite a lot of things happened within the last few hours.
I erased a movie by mistake, Whatever I did, I wasn't able to get it back.

The problem is that the torrent is not seeded all the time, Guess I have to wait.

A few minutes ago, I erased an email by mistake. I wanted to keep that email but damn!

I've got the latest firefox Debian package from experimental, Why experimental / Because it has pango support which means that Arabic diacritics'll be rendered fine.

I decided to remove my ~/.mozilla away so that firefox won't get crazy, I never had to do this with opera, I only had to edit the main configuration fileonce but I'm using the same ~/.opera since opera 5 or so.

Ayway, I only installed the session saver extension and I'm trying to stick to firefox.

The memory consumption looks fine, But I need to give it a try before I decide to stick to it.

I'm still having a few problems with the font size but it should be tweaked soon ;-)
I need to find a way to increase the menubar font size too.

Ah, And the create content page doesn't render correctly, Just to piss me off.

Finally, Here's a new bug report ;-)
