GNU Lab - wolfie - Sun, 20/11/2011 - 6:49am

This year I had doubts about writing this post, since the 4th of November and I am thinking, it is worth it to evaluate my life ? it is worth to write shitty crappy post about crappy life ? what is the point ? but after more than 2 weeks I decided to write it just for the records, may be some day it will help me realize something I was missing.

My coffee

GNU Lab - wolfie - Fri, 20/11/2009 - 1:56pm

I used to drink some nice Turkish coffee around 3:00 AM in the morning alone in the balcony, winter night looking to the sky, feels the cold air on my face and thinking about my next steps, I always did that when I needed to think, for some reason this setup gives u the feeling like you own the world, and ur alone in it , it is all yours, so when you feel it is all yours u start to think / act based on that idea , then the rest is achieving what u had in mind.

Again, as they say "History repeats himself".I am poisoning the Internet with my stories in the same of the year, the 5th of November, but this time it will even be shorter, because nothing has changed, everything is almost pretty much the same.

My Guitar !

GNU Lab - wolfie - Sat, 20/06/2009 - 2:55pm

It's been quite some time I wanted to get a guitar, and at last I took an action. One of my co-workers is a big fan of music, Hatem Oraby the founder of two rock bands called Fading Dreams and The Public offered to help me and the push was really like "okay I'll teach you GNU/Linux and you will show me the way and how I can play the guitar" and it was a deal.

GNU Lab - wolfie - Fri, 24/04/2009 - 7:55pm

It has been some time since I moved and living in Cairo , the big, noise, and depressing capital of Egypt , I do not hate Cairo but also I can not say I am a fan even with all this places for entertainment, the Nile, cinemas, really nice big malls, pyramids, and so on, but on the other hand there is the dark side, the ugly side, all drivers always on harry everyone is honking like they never honk

Red sauce pasta with Mushroom

GNU Lab - wolfie - Fri, 21/11/2008 - 11:41am

I just made and had a nice pasta, and I do feel happy I did like it, and it did remind me of Richard Stallman the father of GNU and open source, when he did say in a movie called Revolution OS that open source programs are like food recipe you cook it, you invite your friends to eat it then you share it with them to do more improvement. So here is my pasta recipe

I didn't forgot the date, I never forgot the 5th of November, it just happen that I didn't want to write, or think about it. anyway this year was just one big disappointment from all sides. Not much changes and if there is any changes they are for worse, the only good thing that I still have some hope left for this year, also I am back to the real me, to the true me. EOF

Asterisk patch for archlinux

GNU Lab - wolfie - Fri, 10/10/2008 - 8:41pm

Well that is not my 1st asterisk / zaptel patch I do, but it is the 1st to commit into digium bug tracking system and I hope they will approve it. Mainly the patches are small and very easy, this one will add the support for Archlinux init script for start /stop / restart asterisk, since Archlinux uses /etc/rc.d "FreeBSD" style, it was a little bit odd.
