Go Linux !!!

Canonical announced yesterday that the Macedonian Ministry of Education and Science will deploy more than 180,000 workstations running Edubuntu 7.04 as part of the “Computer for Every Child” project. The operating system will be installed with the Macedonian language pack.

The “Computer for Every Child”
project of Macedonia is one of the largest thin client and desktop Linux deployments that were ever started. The first 7000 computers with Ubuntu pre-installed were shipped in September. Half of the elementary and secondary Macedonia students go to classes in the morning and the other half attend school in the afternoon, so 180,000 workstation will be more than enough for the entire public school population.

“Macedonia is showing tremendous vision by deciding its own destiny in choosing how its children will learn through computing. By choosing Ubuntu which is free to modify, use and redistribute it turns students into participants in Information Technology and not simply consumers of it.” – said Mark Shuttleworth, founder of the Ubuntu Project.

Ivo Ivanovski, Macedonia’s Minister for the Information Society, added: “The Computer for Every Child initiative is the largest and most important education project undertaken in the 15-year history of the Republic of Macedonia. By selecting Ubuntu as the operating system for all of our classroom virtual PCs, our education system can provide computer-based education for all school children within the limited financial and infrastructural confines that most institutions face today.”

160,000 virtual PC terminals and 20,000 PCs will be supplied by NComputing, all of them running the Ubuntu operating system. The machines will be procured and installed by The Haier Company, a PC maker based in China.

The project will bring innovations in the educational system. Interactive web-based classes in which experts teach in areas like mathematics, biology, chemistry to multiple schools around the country will be one of the advantages brought by the “Computer for Every Child” initiative.

Ubuntu (an African word meaning ‘Humanity to others’) is the ultimate operating system developed by an entire open source community. Ubuntu is perfect for laptops, desktops and servers. It includes all the software you will need, from web browser, e-mail client and word processing to games, programming tools and web server software. Ubuntu OS can be used at home, in a business environment, in public schools, hospitals, etc. The best of all is that Ubuntu is and will always be free of charge. Get it and share it with your friends and family right now from Softpedia.

Surse de energie noi si ecologice

Oare sa fie aceasta o solutie la criza energetica si ecologica?


Betavoltaic Batteries

A betavoltaic battery is a nuclear battery that converts energy from beta particles (electrons) released by a beta emitting radioactive source, such as tritium, into electrical power. The application of tritiated amorphous silicon as an intrinsic energy conversion semiconductor for betavoltaic devices is presented. Thin-film contact potential tritiated amorphous silicon cells have been built. These cells, called tritium batteries, have a specific power of 24 watts per kilogram, a full load operating life of 10 years, and an overall efficiency on the order of 25%. Cheap, long-life, high energy density, low-power batteries. The entrapment of tritium is particularly apt in this application as it is readily substituted for the hydrogen present in hydrogenated amorphous semiconductors with good intrinsic electronic properties. Radioisotopes other than tritium, may also be used as a source of energetic electrons as well as other forms of energetic nuclear radiation such as krypton-85 for example. Tritiated amophous films are mechanically stable, free for flaking or blistering, with good adherence to the substrate and may be simultaneously deposited onto both conducting and insulating substrates and may be simultaneously deposited onto both conducting and insulating substrates using a discharge in tritium plasma. The silicon layer sputtered in a tritium/argon ambient at temperatures below 300’C results in a tritiated amorphous silicon film with the tritium concentration being variable from 5 to 30% depending upon deposition conditions. See patent #4,835,433.

Afganistan din nou!!!

crucearecent am trecut pe la Riscanovca, si spre surprinderea mea am descoperit un monument, pe care-l vedeti in poze. La inceput nu am inteles in cinstea cui a fost inaltat, crucea m-a facut sa ma gindesc la ceva legat de crestinism. Apoi am descoperit ca intreg complexul memorial compus din trei piese: “piatra lui Voronin”, fata care plinge si coroana de spini si crucea, a fost ridicat in memoria soldatilor cazuti in Afganistan intre 1979-1989, si asta m-a lasat intr-o stare perplexitate complecta.

obiectiile mele sunt urmatoarelea:

– care a fost motivul pentru care piatra cu numele celor care au participat la constructia complexului (eu o numesc “piatra lui voronin”) contine numai un singur nume – Voronin, restul fiind enumerarea de institutii fara de personalitate. Ai impresia ca e ansamblul lui Voronin.

– ce are cununa de spini si crucea in comun cu razboiul din Afganistan?! Razboiul nu a fost in nici un caz un razboi pentru credinta, a fost un razboi de cotropire si de subjugare a unui stat liber. Iar cei care au murit acolo nu urmareau niste scopuri crestine in nici un fel. Ar trebui de memorat memoria soldatilor cazuti si nu razboiul in sine. Ori la noi s-a incercat o “crestinizare” a razboiului si o martirizare a celor cazuti.

– panourile informative lasa de dorit:( Incepind cu inscriptia “StandArt”, care este un logotip comercial si de publicitate, si deci nu-si are loc aici. (adica daca te gindesti ca ), trecind prin datele incorecte despre durata razboiului: 27 decembrie 1979 – 15 februarie 1989, adica 9 ani, 1 luna si 19 zile, si in nici un caz 9 ani 11 luni si 19 zile cum e scris pe unul din panouri. O fi o eroare minora, dar totusi complexul a fost inaltat cu “binecuvintarea” lui Voronin si de intregul Guvern, si cind in colo o asa gresala! O gramada de oameni care nu stiu matematica!!

Ma intreb daca e numai una, sau poate mai sunt si altelea?! Poate chiar ansamblul comemorativ o fi o alta greseala?! Nu stiu, dar am inceput sa am 10 ani de razboi!!indoieli si niste ginduri subversive!!piatra lui voronin

Protestul de Luni!!





Adresare tuturor!

miting de protest


invitatie protest

la 26 noiembrie la Chisinau, luni, in fata Teatrului de opera si balet, al ora 10:00

Preturile cresc pe zi ce trece. Iar veniturile ne sunt tot mai mici. A fost chiar publicata legea Nr. 208, care interzice munca in baza patentei in piete. Din cauza aceasta peste 40 de mii de cetateni au ramas fara locuri de munca.


Situatia e grava si pentru tineri si pentru batrini. Este interzisa vinzarea unor marfuri second hand, desi in Uniunea europeana sunt cumparate liber. Aceasta lipseste patentatariid e locuri de munca. Familiile, copii lor ramin fara surse de existenta. Populatia nevoiasa este in continuare fara dreptul de a cumpara si sa ne sustin aunul pe altul. Nu uitati, ca sunt alungati din piata si arestati titularii de patenta, iar miine puterea va proceda astfel cu dumneavoastra. E timpul sa protestam!



Toti iesim la miting!

Sa ne aparam dreptul la supravietuire!

Buy Nothing Day – Sambata, 24 Noiembrie

Ok, deci iata a venit si Ziua Fara Cumparaturi!!!


Aceasta actiune are un caracter ecologic, care vrea sa atraga atentia ca nu trebuie sa cumperi ceva ce prin calitatile sale afecteaza mediul inconjurator. Si nu in ultimul rind aceasta este si un semnal de alarma, fata de promovarea valorilor consumeriste in societatea umana.

Cind ma gindesc despre Ziua Fara Cumparaturi, primul lucuru ce imi vine in minte sunt saculetele de plastic care aruncate, sunt luate de vint si atirna de copaci. Iti creeaza impresia de o lume postapocaliptica, in care nu au mai ramas oameni, au ramas numai saculetele de plastic.

mai multe informatii gasiti pe pagina oficiala, si aici, si poate inca aici. Iar aici e scris despre Buy Nothing Day in Romania.

Operatiunile de salvare de la Marea Azov!

Se pare ca acum pe primul plan este pusa salvarea pasarilor intoxicate cu produse petroliere, dupa cum reiese de aici. Nici in aceste clipe grele masina birocratica a statului nu uita de obligatiunile sale, controale inopinate ale Serviciilor de Medicina Preventiva, verificari sau lipsa totala de interes manifestata fata de soarta pasarilor.

Noutatea buna este ca se poate totusi de plecat acolo pentru a participa la operatiunile de salvare, cu toate ca cred, ca aceasta este plina de momente surprize neplacute care se pot ivi de unde nu te astepti.

Aceste operatiuni de salvare denota inca odata totala nepregatire a organelor statului pentru a face fata unei catastrofe de acest gen. Si cel mai alarmant pentru Moldova este ca ea nu este ferita de asemenea posibile catastrofe. Chiar daca la un nivel mai mic sau redus, ea totusi risca as fie un dezastru pentru mediul din Moldova si vecinii sai.

Ar fi o idiotenie sa nu tragem citeva concluzii din urma celor intimplate pe Marea Azov, si una dintre ele ar fi “shit happen”, adica daca trebuie sa se intimple atunci fii sigur ca se intimpla. o alta concluzie este ca “shit happen when u are not expecting” – adica daca se intimpla atunci se intimpla cind nu te astepti. Apropo aceste concluzii sunt valabile si in viata de toate zilele. (Singurul exemplu care imi vine acum este: 2001 cind comunistii au cistigat alegerile parlamentare – “shit happen”, si in 2005 cind PPCD voteaza un presedinte comunist – “shit happen when u are not expecting it”).

Dar se pare ca m-am abatut de la tema, doar un pic, deoarece problemele ecologice sunt si niste probleme politice.

despre marea azov!!

am primit azi raspuns aici referitor la posibilitatea de merge si a ajuta la curatirea tarmurilor marii azov de produse petroliere.


chestia cu FSB si zona de frontiera chiar m-a derutat, ma simt “back in URSS”. Interesant pentru ce este nevoie acolo de posturi de graniceri? Ce pazesc ei acolo? Marea Azov este o mare interioara, inchisa. Accesul din exterior fiind limitat.
