Journal Journal: let's use this as a blog. isn't what's it's made for ?

So I'll use this slashdot journal as a personnal blogs. I hope not too much people will read it. Looking at the number of comments on previous post, I think no one is reading it :) I don't write enought about what I do in my other blog, but when I know some people will be reading, I don't want to write too much :)

So it's saturday, and I don't really have something to do this afternoon. I stayed here browsing the web, reading/sending some mails, some message on usenet or the newsgroups at school. Nothing really exciting. Last week (not this one but the one before) was really cool. My parents was here, in the USA with me, so we could visit a little California, Nevada, Oregon, driving and visiting the day, staying in a Motel6 at night. We've been to San Francisco, the coast between Monterey and San Lui Obispo (but it was raining that day), to Bakerfield, near the Death Valley, to Nevada in Beatty, to Lake Tahoe, Carson City, Viginia City, Carson City, Sacramento, then back to Oregon. That was really cool. Now I miss my parents, but I should be back in France in July.

Yesterday night was cool too. I stayed with a girl who had been visiting France a little. She's really cool, and I like when she speaks french :)

So now I don't know what I'll do today. I'm a little tired so I think I'll sleep a little and see what I do next ...

An important question is, when will the file ok.txt from http://slashdot.org/ok.txt will be removed ?
Does anyone knows for how long it has been there ?


Journal Journal: Secure software

here is an interesting text about secure software, from the author of Dovecot (an imap server).
I think he's true.


Journal Journal: When you don't want to give your email ...

mailinator is interesting to avoid spam. When you need to get only one or 2 emails from some site, your give anything@mailinator.com, then you can go read it without a password, and the received email will be removed a few days later ...


Journal Journal: A bad news

One PearPC developper died after getting hit by a train.

We can read this on the PearPC webpage :
Yesterday evening at 23:00 one of my best friends, one of my best critics, one of the most valuable programmers of PearPC, the one who could help me in all situations, the one with whom I had the best time of my life, died after getting hit by a train.

Journal Journal: Why You Should Dump Internet Explorer

Here is an article that explain why it is a good idea to use something else than Internet Explorer. Mainly because of security issues, and standards support. Also browsers like Mozilla have some functions that you can't find in IE (block pop-ups, tabs, etc ...)

Journal Journal: Is a journal something like a blog ???

Yes, it looks like a blog.
A lot of people I know have a blog. Maybe it could be a good idea if I started one.
At least, if I die this night, there will still be some memories from me on earth.

Hmm, does some people use their slashdot journal as a blog ?
Do you think it is a good idea ?
