they left me in the grave

Yeah a little incident from when i was small child (4-5 years)


Some people were working on the foundation of one house ,


While playing with other kids they left me in the grave without


stairway, Yah was pretty scarry , me screaming there in the grave until someone got me aut of there.


I just wonder how we imagine death ? can we , shoud we





i want to talk about life universe and all

yeah what is the answer to all ?


And the answer could be in innocence , i don't need to think to all the problems in the world . Is an heavy weight against us. I almost forgot to be happy and open. Is not good to be childish but smart man.


Maybe i'm too old now 27 years and is time to do something . Is always risky to do something for known reward.


Start to ejoy life ,every breath you take the rest doesn't count: money, cloths , hardware.


Yah time to kill -9 some daemons : coffee is first on my list, the second is lazyness (nice girl)











I don't need nobody

nobody needs me ... baby


ehh some blues on 'lectricblues radio


from sorewall list

>Yes I've googled and now I'm tottaly confused

special day - my birthday

about special day , it was special : in the morning saw a truck hitting an small vehicle and comming towards me


first reaction was to run back wards avoiding the truck


Ehh the truck avoided another machine (garbage one ) and driver did some big efforts to keep it on the road .


What i remember most was the driver eyes were fixed upon me/us (there were other ppl too)


Still amazed how fast it stoped that big monster ,


Ok driver cursing after getting out of it's place (it was the small vehicle's fault)


Oh and forgot to mention it was snow on the road ...


ps: treat your days as the best ones , who knows how many are left


Another story i have , saturday i was going town center and one moment was thinking of at one machine numbers


("VXW" or something) and then thought about what would be if someone had GOD number on his plate . Sunday while going to school i saw that number ! "GOD" , Hmm interesting ... And monday the truck scared me .


Still have the adrenaline inside rushing trought my veins

a crash course in info

i never figured out how to navigate with info - now i did


"a crash course in info: Info files are designed in a tree structure,with each page or section being considered a 'node'; h gets help, q quitsinfo, SPACE scrolls down the screen, DEL scrolls up the screen, b jumps to the beginning of the node, e jumps to the end of the node, n jumps to the next node, p jumps to the previous node, g jumps to a specified node, m jumps to a specified menu item, s searches the info file, and l steps back 1 node."

help free sarge/sid - kill some bugs

"If you want to see this project or Debian or even any Debian derivative
succeed, you should be helping to reduce the number of release-critical
bugs. I'd rather see you there right now than doing things for UserLinux.

Please see
http://bugs.debian.org/release-critical/
http://release.debian.org/
http://release.debian.org/sarge.html

Many Thanks"
