roooooombbaaaaaaa! rhymes with huuuuummmppaaaaaa!

for some time now, i had been watching the irobot vacuums and last week i finally got one.
here's my first notes about it:
- silent as opposed to a big vacuum
- goes around on chairs "feet"
- detects walls, but not other simple objects, and slows down instead of bumping into them
- it stays parallel to a wall so it can clean them from one point to another
- it makes "funny" noises, like when undocking and going on it's back: it makes this sound like trucks do when pulling back
- it returns to his dock, if you instruct it to or if it needs to although it has to able to detect where the dock is so it helps if it's on the same room
- when cleaning and it passes by the dock it avoids it, that is it doesn't clean around it. seems it sees it like a virtual wall
- it copes ok with cables: goes over them although sometimes it can take them too. of coz it depends if they're securely attached to something instead of laying around.
- it bumps into lighter things and moves them, eg. empty boxes.


anyways i'm loving it. check below for some vids

Beware Of The Cows!

They've got a wiki too now!

After we've got our "new" domain (bsdcow.org) and have put our old site up again, today I did a bit of work on making the new site a wiki. The layout is based on http://openbsd.org.pt - many thanks and m4d gr33tz!

User accounts are the same as for this filthy blogz0r... assuming any of you slackerz remember them :-) Here's how to edit pages for open.bsdcow.org.

weird dreams

have you ever had an urge to legally buy the software?
like licensing that copy of windows, os x, etc...
i dunno why but i got this a few weeks ago and still comes to my mind
i dreamed of mac pro workstation all pimped out, running leopard, vista, openbsd all seamlessly working
this problably doesn't make sense at all but i'm just writing it out so in the future i can check back and see where my mind was wondering about

feature request for a mp3 player

wouldn't it be nice to have a mp3 player that when you resumed listening to a podcast it would go 30 seconds back from where you were listening to it last time?
sometimes i'm following a podcast and have to stop it, only to resume later, sometimes days and i don't really recall what was said before.
this would be a optional yes/no feature on the player of coz!

procmail maildir recipe

for some time i have procmail working with maildir so i just wanted to post this there for future reference

DEFAULT=$HOME/Mail/Maildir/ # Change to Mailbox if using mbox format
MAILDIR=$HOME/Mail/Maildir/
LOCKFILE=$HOME/Mail/.lock
VERBOSE=no
LOGFILE=$HOME/Procmail/log

:0:
* ^TO_\/(source-changes)@
.src-changes/

:0:
* ^TO_\/(misc)@
.misc/

:0:
* ^TO_\/(ports)@
.ports/


p.s. i think the only change from mbox to maildir is the slash (/) in the end of the mailbox name as it's the way of the maildir :-)

r0sk in Pireus

Lest we not forget that some cows even take vacations

r0sk and Marta, with Javier drinking ouzo in Pireus

Just so it doesn't get lost... here is the picture of r0sk and Marta (together with Javier on the left) in Pireus. Unfortunately we had only one hour of time together. We were lucky to find a place where we could get an ouzo (and some "kalamaki" souvlakia). Down by the harbor in Pireus is not really the prime address for good food. It was also quite warm, especially due to untypical high humidity for the area.

It was nice to meet those guys and hear a lot of spanish :-) We got them back to their boat (the one on the right) and they steamed off a couple of hours later on their honeymoon to Mykonos and Santorini.
