It is time for stupid, empty politicians slogans once again in my dear country. And, as always, while we had lively, controversial presidential elections three years ago (and I won't rant this time on why so many Mexicans still believe the current president can only be called a de facto president), the mid-term elections... Fail to get any attention and cause only bored reactions.

...Just going out of almost two weeks of reclusion due to the
porcine^W human^W atypical^W new-and-yet-unnamed AH1N1 influenza. The streets are still mostly deserted, but at least we are allowed back into our workplaces.
We have had a quite strange couple of days...
Everything was smooth as usual on Thursday. As I posted here, I cycled to Iztacala to give a talk and back, and basically had a good time. We had heard news some days earlier on the radio that the usual seasonal flu was still present by mid-April, while usually it disappeared by early March... But nothing more.
I was invited to talk about Free Software at yesterday's FLISOL. Yesterday? Aren't FLISOLs organized on Saturday? Well, not this one, for various reasons which I won't quote here. And no, I am not a supporter of the installfests idea, but I went gladly to talk about what is Free Software all about - The philosophy behind Free Software. Besides, the talk was at FES Iztacala, where I worked for four happy years, 1999-2003.
Umh, is today the quote your neighbour day? No? Thought so... Still, for the second time in a couple of minutes, I'm quoting/translating here. This time, I'm quoting a short text posted by fellow Mexican Debian guy Rodrigo Gallardo: Deceptions (hmm... Not in the let you down sense, but in the deceiving sense. Sometimes it is hard to translate a single word without twisting it around). My translation is far from perfect - Read it in Spanish, you will enjoy it more.
I usually use this blog to post about stuff I have written or that is somehow related to my work / professional life. This time, however, I'll just use it to share with you a short text my father published in the column he writes in the La Unión de Morelos newspaper, Academia de Ciencias de Morelos: La Ciencia, desde Morelos para el mundo.
I live in a 55 year old house. That's not something to be worried about, of course, but it does mean that my house needs major maintenance works to continue to be in good shape.
I have been waiting for next-Thursday for many years, and I just found out - by mere chance.
In 2001, Leo Masliah came to Mexico City and performed a couple of shows. I don't remember the reason... But I missed it.
