Busy days

I’m really busy. Perhaps too much to be unemployed. Or maybe due to this… – Preparing trips to Madrid (next weekend), UK (June) and Canada (July). – Managing lots of things in the Go Spanish Association committee. Moreover I’m in charge of the national selection, which will take part in the 1st World Mind Sport… Read More »

A PDA with Linux

I’m used to read PDFs while in bed, on my Acer PDA. But its tiny resolution (320×240) didn’t help a clear reading, therefore I started to look for a bigger device, it must be easy to hold but not too big.

Time of changes

Post #200, and time of changes. – I’m unemployed now. Eventually I finish my last day in my company.

I’ve learned a lot during… Read More »
