About myself

photo

I'm graduated physicist, but since 1974 I've been working with computers and digital electronics. I decided to change to Linux the first time I hear about it. I used to program in Msdos/Windows before and have spent very much time disassembling msdos code to figure how to program with it.  Never more... 
I'm married and have two boys (now they are somewhat grown) 21 and 15 years old. I live in a country house near Recife, northeast of Brazil.  I have built at a side of my house a small office/lab where I work most of my time, doing consulting in FPGA design,  industrial controllers, and systems programming.

Freud

I have a friend that takes care of who enter of leave my office. It's name, Dr. Freud, is because of it's pyschopathological behavior. Of course, it did not like penguins, but otherwise is very friendly.

Open source software helping

I really feel Open Source is the right thing to do. That's why, when I find something wrong (a bug), I try to fix it myself and send the results to the author. Some software I have helped, mostly with small fixes:

  • isapnptools
  • tcldev
  • tkcon

This is not a complete list. If you find some other, please send to me.
