Moving back to Blogger

I’m moving back to Blogger after a long time without new posts. Next time you point to lofspot.net, this is the blog you’ll see. My old blog is located at http://paapereira.squarespace.com/, but will be discontinued rapidly. The goal for this blog is to document my incursions to Linux (Ubuntu), Android and my new B3 Server. I have to manually import my blog from Squarespace :( and this will take some time.

Currently there is a list of possible projects within the scope of SAPO Summerbits 2008. The Software Livre platform is 100% free software and it’s running Debian GNU/Linux with trac, mailman, svn, etc.

[ Starting ]

This blog is intended to log my latest experience in Linux. Through the years I have tried out several distributions such as Red Hat (and later Fedora), Suse, Mandrake (now Mandriva) and the Portuguese Caixa MΓ‘gica. There were always something that drove me back to Windows and as the years passed the free time started to be insufficient to allow me dive right into it.
