I had just went to Nevada last week. Nevada is very far, far away from Bangkok where I live for the whole life. This trip is the most longest one since I born. Actually, traveling from Bangkok to U.S. is a travel through time. I had to cross the international date line. Most people will get a sort of "Jet Lag". Honestly, I don't know what it is, even now. This trip took me about 30 hours from Bangkok to Reno and another 30 hours to go back. Anyway, I always feel like a fresh.
Two weeks ago I published (1, 2) the patched version of OpenOffice.org to fix freezing problem on Ubuntu Gutsy. Anyway, it is only just for i386 architecture since I have only i386 and someone said no problem on amd64. I have just received 2 confirmations about this problem on amd64 so I tried to recompile it again on amd64 architecture.
If you noticed, I seems to disappear for 2 weeks because of freezing bug in OpenOffice.org. I spent 2 weeks for only one task; compiling OpenOffice.org on Ubuntu Gutsy. I'm not familiar with development environment used at Sun and in OpenOffice project. There are so many technical terms to learn. By the way, I finally add a patch from #81519 to OpenOffice.org 1ubuntu5 which my request #140878 is not responded yet. So it's time to share what I have done in this 2 weeks.
Million thanks to Noneck for his twitter. After I saw that, it heavily inspired me like an EMP. Actually, it's such a simple social network nowaday. I don't see any special features but it simply works! Twitter, in fact, only has one and simple concept to share what you are doing publicly on this world wide community. Everyone following you will be notified when you update your status. Anyway, the hidden magic is the way of implementations; How to update? and How to notify?
