Varianta în română o găsiţi aici.

On November the 12th, Novell and the openSUSE community will launch openSUSE 11.2. This calls, of course, for a celebration. Actually, there will be 2 celebrations in Bucharest:

  • On November 12th, 20:00 EET, there will be a gathering at Trattoria di Bugsy, Bd. Iuliu Maniu 59, Bucharest – Map
  • On November 14th, starting from 14:00 EET, we will have some presentations together with the guys from Fedora and Firefox in UPB, Room EG301 – Map

We’re waiting for as many of you as possible!

JavaScript, Open Content, Romana / No Comments

Dacă folosiţi Firefox, Flock sau Thunderbird, puteţi acum contribui la dezvoltarea dicţionarelor româneşti de la Firefox sau OpenOffice.org.

Pentru asta, trebuie să descărcaţi extensia Submit Word şi să adăugaţi cuvintele noi în dicţionarul personal (vezi imaginea de mai jos). Submit Word va încărca pe situl i18n.ro toate cuvintele pe care le adăugaţi în dicționarul dvs. personal. Dacă mai multe persoane vor sugera acelaşi cuvânt, el va fi adăugat în dicționarele româneşti.

Extensia e activată de optiunea "Adaugă în dicţionar"

Just bragging…

Posted by Strainu on May 28, 2009
Open Content, Personal, Wikipedia / No Comments

I haven’t written anything on the blog in a while, so I thought it’s time to brag a little about the latest developments 🙂

I’ve been to eLiberatica to meet people from other open-source communities. It’s been a nice experience, that you can read and see pictures about it here (in Romanian). Things are actually going pretty well with the openSUSE community. I’m going to the openSUSE conference in September, and Alex will probably come too.

On a more personal note, the last 4 months of running are beginning to show, and I’m confident that I’ll be ready to run 8 km at Tusnad Marathon.

The rest of my life isn’t going that well though. I want to post some weekend trips to the site, as well as some new (or rather old) code, but between school and work, I just don’t find the time for it. I’m also looking for some summer holiday ideas, but it seems my friend group has pretty much split apart.

I’m going through a wiki-phase, characterized by the despair of writing for the 20-30 people who participate on ro.wp actively. Therefore, I’ve decided to take a break, read their blogs and see what happens.

Anyway, I haven’t given up on any of these issues yet, so I’ll eventually write those posts and go back to Wikipedia.

Suse Romania

Posted by Strainu on December 25, 2008
Open Content / No Comments

Last Thursday was the launch day for OpenSUSE 11.1. As I told you before, I’m involved in translating this Linux distribution in Romanian, along with Alex and Daiana. This effort was not so well known, so we decided to make a site to make it known.

So, at suseromania.ro you will find news about openSUSE and the Romanian translation team, along with some unusual tutorials and original reviews, plus a forum (in Romanian, of course). Enjoy!
