More for my future benefit than for anyone reading
these messages, here’s what to expect in the future
from this blog/site/whatever:

– posts both in English and Portuguese; mostly in
English; I do my reading 99% in English (for the
last 20 years or so) and its easier for me to write
in English; I can do Portuguese quite nicely as well,
but will do so only when matters are strictly of local

– posts recovering my scattered digital stuff and
comments on the recovered garbage

– posts on my general areas of interest: Video Games,
Technology, Music, Books, Business and Philosophy; I’ll
try to detail these interests soon, in separate posts

– weblogging posts, weekly posts with links that have
caught my interest/attention (yes boys and girls, the
weblog term was initially about just that, logging your
web travelling/surfing)

On a more technical note: right now the posts are pure
text files on the filesystem and everything is tied
together with a couple of bash scripts (yes, even the
rss.cgi RSS feed generator is a shell scrip; I am teh
shell script master, ph34r…); in the next few days
everything will migrate to a newsgroup server (yes,
the NNTP/Usenet kinda stuff; blogs are just a bad
implementation of Usenet…) and will be served from
a (probably) CherryPy server.

C U!
