Nacho Barrientos Arias: Free 1Password Licenses!

1Password is a very powerful application for OSX to keep safe your passwords and identities. It works as a standalone application and as a series of plugins for several Internet browsers. It is capable of, among other things, autofill registration forms and save you a lot of time filling in the same personal information again and again. To autofill a login form, just click the 1P browser menu bar icon, choose a previously recorded identity and voila, 1Password logins in automagically with no further interaction. All the harvested information is stored in a different keychain unlocked by a master key placed in the login keychain (See Keychain for more information). Macheist, in collaboration with Agile Web Solutions, is offering free licenses as a Christmas present here. You only have to create and account and click in the links below the tree to get your free license.

Nacho Barrientos Arias: 2 weeks, 6 days, 16 hours wasted!

Although Dato has recently talked about it, it is worth to drop again a few more bits about as a try to increase its popcon among TV shows addicts. is an easy way to track your activity watching TV shows. Using a fancy interface it is possible, for instance, to tag episodes as acquired/watched, be aware of upcoming premieres and, taking advantage of the provided RSS channels, stay up to date of new episodes without even visiting the website. Have you ever asked yourself how many hours have you spent in front of your screen watching TV shows? has got the answer. Cool, isn’t it? ;)

Nacho Barrientos Arias: Example: How to statically and dynamically link your executables

People usually uses Google, among other things, to look for hints about how to do small tasks. Hopefully, you will find the hint you were looking for in somebody’s blog, because he or she had the same problem time ago and decided to talk about it. Last night, I was a bit bored and started writing a dumb set of files to introduce people how static and dynamic linking work, so trying to put my two cents and add a new hint to the wild wild web, I’m sharing it. The C source files are practically useless, therefore pay attention to the Makefile, the magic is in there. If you’re downloading it only to compile, execute and see what happens forget about it, the program is completely silly. Otherwise, probably the Makefile is buggy somewhere so bug reports are welcome. For teaching purposes, try, for example, breaking the ABI and see what happens. Google, index this post please! Update: This example does not cover autotools/libtool

Nacho Barrientos Arias: Hello Slicehost!

As you might know, I’ve been sharing a dedicated server with three more guys. Since several months ago, we have been thinking about change the provider because the plans offered by JVDS were very price-outdated compared with other providers. Dreamhost didn’t fit our requirements (no root access and shared databases., WTF?!), so we had to choose between either Linode or Slicehost. After waiting for about a month in the prospective customer queue, we finally moved to Slicehost. Slicehost is a fast, made-from-geeks-to-geeks and XEN powered virtual dedicated servers provider. We’re quite happy with the change, we got a new machine with four times more memory for the same price and we also moved from Apache to Lighttpd. All the references from Slicehost we read were good and, at least by now, I second those thoughts. Skyhusker made an awesome work migrating the stuff and all the services are already moved. Of course, we’re running Etch.

Nacho Barrientos Arias: Bye-bye Debconf

Sadly, this is the second year I have to say good bye to Debconf, as I wrote time ago, I wasn’t able to attend Debconf in the selected dates. Yeah, I said “*was*” because some plans have changed recently, and, as you are probably thinking, it’s already too late to ask for sponsorship and start planning the trip. I hope to meet you in the next event and, meanwhile, I’ve a message for all the attendees: Fly well, fly safe, have fun and drink some beer for me!

Nacho Barrientos Arias: DudesConf

Dear Lazyweb, I’m sorry, I know I’m late but here it is my promised report about DudesConf. It was simply cool, even though it was my first Debian-related real [0] event everything was in a good, familiar and friendly shape. I’m really happy to had met all the Debian developers who attended, GPUL people and others, pleased to meet you guys! Talks, BOFs, meals, accommodation, everything was impressive, so my gratitude goes to everyone who helped made DudesConf possible :). If you feel curious, you should be able to watch some pictures in the gallery or read the live (I know, it’s not really live at the moment, my fault) event coverage. Of course, Ricardo, thank you for take me to A coru a, it was a pleasure for me to share some kilometers (some? all of them!) with you ;) [0] Real comes from real life, Daniel pointed me out days ago to the actual difference between real an virtual life.

Nacho Barrientos Arias: Discover, rename and launch!

This is exactly what OSX developers did with Leopard and Spaces. Isn’t this feature available for ages in lots of GNU/Linux desktops? Are OSX users definitely (re-)discovering how to work natively with virtual-desktops?, let’s see what Apple says in Leopard’s main website:
You do a lot on your Mac. So what happens when all those projects pile up? Easy. Use Spaces to organize all your windows into groups and banish clutter completely. A Space for everything and everything in its Space. Only with Mac OS X Leopard.
What the fuck? Only with Mac OS X Leopard? AAAAAAAAA!

Nacho Barrientos Arias: Debconf7/NoJune

Taking a look to one of the IRC channels where I’m habitual, I found an URL to a Debian wiki page, where people is adding their names because they will have problems to attend Debconf7 in the planned date. By chance I’m in this set, exams are planned for this date. Please consider add yourself to this list if it is impossible for you attend DebConf7 in June.
