Warning: This website is just another typical personal homepage, with lots of boring stuff about my interests and work. I tried my best to make it a useful portal for students and colleagues with similar interests, but don't stay long if you start feeling a headache.

4 weeks of website beta, everything ok

My many thanks to friends and colleagues who took the time to go over the website and give me their feedback. Fortunately, only minor issues came up, like long texts in the main menu (due to template's wide font), a few spelling errors and some broken links. All and all, Joomla has made it again, requiring only minimum effort to correct any issues and keep maintenance to minimum.

Joomla.org has announced a new upgrade (1.5.15) for the platform, addressing various fixes and optimization issues. This website has already been updated and, hopefully, the migration process to the upcoming 1.6 (major) upgrade of Joomla will work just as smoothly.

In the meantime, I got the chance to "revive" my old laptop: an Acer Aspire 1300, with AMD AthlonXP 1.6 GHz, 512 MB RAM and 20 GB hard disk. This machine is so deprecated, compared to today's mini netbooks, that searching the net for "Acer Aspire 1300" returns almost entirely shops for battery replacements. Until now, it used to "struggle" under Windows XP Home, but I decided it was time to try something more efficient and lightweight. And here it is, as good as new, with openSuSE 11.1 (32-bit of course), full installation plus Matlab and some other tools:


openSuSE 11.1 up and running :: It's true, 32-bit distribution installed and running smoothly on a 10-year laptop, less than 6 GB on hard disk (system+swap), with only 512 MB RAM and AMD AthlonXP @ 1.6 GHz

It seems that Linux is still the best way to revive old PC machines, discover more free space in the hard disk and get the most out of legacy hardware.

 

NOTE: The site is currently in testing (beta) version and several pages are still under heavy construction or empty. Please stay tunned for frequent updates and of course feel free to send feedback on any bugs, broken links, etc.
