Oscar for Halle Berry!

If you were watching the Oscars yesterday, and you saw the way so emotional that Halle Berry accepted her Oscar for best Actress, you would be as moved as I am about the Oscars. Definitely human art has to be awarded and recognized so that artists keep up with the good work entertaining us and delivering their message to the world. This is the list of the winners.
[Update: 2002-03-25 00:19:31] Denzel Washington got best Actor! Wow. Amazingly sorprising since he is probably the best actor out there. (Sorry Tom Hanks, but you know Denzel is way up there) Amazing Oscars night!

Lo que olvidó señalar el presidente Bush

Lo que olvidó señalar el presidente Bush

MONTERREY, México (CNN) -- El presidente de Estados Unidos, George W. Bush, dijo: "verter dinero sobre un status quo fracasado hace poco para ayudar a los pobres".
Los recursos deben ser "consagrado a proyectos en naciones que gobiernan justamente, invierten en su gente y alientan la libertad económica" e insistió en que el valor de la ayuda debe ser mensurado según los resultados obtenidos.

RedHat 7.3 beta (skipjack)

RedHat released it's 7.3b distro code-named 'skipjack'. The anouncement is here, and the mirrors are here. As we all know, this is just a beta and it's not yet ready to be used every day. This is just meant for developers. However, those of us who use Linux cannot wait when we see a new candidate to try out. So the usual download iso/burn iso/boot and upgrade cycle would never end.

Mac-on-Linux

Mac-On-Linux (MOL) project does for PPC-based Linux hardware what Wine does for x86-based Linux: it emulates a fake computer on top of which other OS can run; which started first? duno... However, there are many differences on MOL and Wine. MOL for instance allows you to actually run Mac OS on Linux, either on a separate window, or full screen mode, which means that you can run any Mac OS software. Wine on the other hand emulates some part of Windows and allows you to run some programs. There are other projects for x86-based Linux that allow you to do the same that MOL does for Mac (vmware, and VirtualPC are the ones that come to mind). The difficult part is actually getting them to work! Read on....

Scientology y el internet

El tema de la religion siempre ha sido muy controversial. Por un lado estan aquellos que fielmente hacen bien a la humanidad en su nombre, y por el otro, aquellos que simplemente se hacen de dinero por medio al abuso de la religion, y al abuso de la ignorancia de las masas. El tema ultimamente es de como Google.com tuvo que sacar los enlaces relacionados con la protesta en contra de la iglesia de 'cientologia' (scientology), debido a los derechos reservados de dicha iglesia. Este obviamente es un tema que tiene un conflicto de ambos lados: derecho libre de palabra (pueblo), y los derechos reservados (compañias). ¿Quién ganará, no sabemos, pero realmente cuando uno lee frases célebres como esta, uno no tiene duda de que en sí la religiones esta abusando de la ingenuidad de muchos: L. Ron Hubbard quote:
"Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous.
If a man really wants to make a million dollars,
the best way would be to start his own religion"
Reader's Digest reprint, May 1980, p.1

Hubbard later created the Church of Scientology...
