F1 2007 Started

March 25, 2007

The opening circuit of the Formula1 2007 season happened last Sunday at Albert Park, South Melbourne, Australia.

The Ferrari driver Kimi Raikonen, the former McLaren Mercedez driver last season, had won the race while the last season-driver champion Alonso, who is now driving for McLaren Mercedez team, won the 2nd place.


Nothing special to say

March 15, 2007

It has been a very long time that I haven’t post new topic. I was just busy with my work.

And now, I still don’t have any special news to say. I just want to bring up my favorite pictures which are taken via my Panasonic X700 mobile phone.

A so called historical mountain Korng Rey located in my home province, Kompong Chnang, about 93km north-west from Phnom Penh.

Phnom Penh – Battembang rail way. It was taken while I was at my grand ma house, between Battambang and Pur Sat province.

(Sorry if this is not an Open Source, but to me, it’s an Open Sport πŸ™‚ )

Last night, at 00 am (time in my house, Cambodia), the final Formula1 round took place at Sao Paolo, Brazil. It’s an amazing race in my life, even in Formula1 history. The seven-time champion, Michael Schumacher, needed to win that race to challenge 2006 title from Alonso who needed only 1 point (eighth place) to maintain his title from last season.

Because of some technical problems in qualifying session, the German car was lined up at tenth on the grid while his team-mate, Fellipe Massa who won this race, was at the first place and Alonso was at third. However, with an excellent start, he soon pushed his car to sixth place just behind Alonso’s team-mate, Giancarlo Fisichella. He then tried to seize Fisichella, but the Italian did not give up his position. The German car then surfferd a debris on its left-rear causing the car slowing down. Everything seem to be over for the German and the Cambodian (yeah, that’s me). The German then tried to get his car to the pits while watching other cars left away from him. I thought, he would stop the race. And if he did, I would also switch off my TV. But he didn’t. So why would I go to bed?

After fill up fuel and fresh the rubber, he rejoined the race at 19th which was the last position of the race, just about 4 seconds before his team-mate who was leading the race. However, he immediately showed up his performance by setting a fastest lap and and passed the backmakers one by one. 18th, 17th,…10th. “At least he got 1 point at 8th place”, I thought at that time. He did speed up to 8th place, but who cared? He just continued his progress. He shortly found him self again behind the Fisichella. The Renault driver was forced by the German’s relentless pressure, causing him running wide at the corner and gave up his place to the German.

The next man who suffered from the German’s thunder-like speed was Kimi Raikkonen, who will replace the Geman at Ferrari next season. The Finn strongly defensed his 4th place while the German speeded up his move. The pair then went side-by-side into the corner while their tiers was only 1 inch from each other. That’s pity for the Finn, nothing stopped the German. However, 4th was not his target. The German then tried to fight Jenson Button for the 3rd, but with just a few laps remining, he just had no enough time for his mission. The race was finished with Massa at 1st place, Alonso at 2nd, Button at 3th and the German at 4th.

What’s an amazing race! What’s an amazing driver!

Even the German’s F1 racing life is over (he already announced his retirement plan some time ago), but he have left a great life experience with his top determination. I’ll never forget his move and determination. He will be always my super hero and I wish him all the best in his retirement life with his family.

As you can see in my previous post; I told you that

A lot of thing are coming into my mind. They deserve to be in my blog.

Now they are. As stated in the title, I’m now moving another step away from Windows. Don’t be confused! I’m not at all hating Windows. I’m just getting more and more good feeling with Open Source software. You might say, “you work with OpenSource, so you never like Microsoft”. Say it! I don’t mind. πŸ˜‰

Let’s come to what I want you to know. Ok, here is it…


It’s Ubuntu? No. It’s an application that always make me switch to Windows everytime I want to upload picture to my flickr account.

As most of you know already, flickr is a very famous digital photo sharing website. We can upload our picture and use them in other website by linking to the URL of the picture (just like I used here). To make it more easier, flickr provided an uploader application which can be installed and run in our computer. Unfortunately, that application works only in Windows (as far as I know). This is a pain for me since I’m not staying too much with Windows. I have to switch to my Windows XP to be able to upload my favorite pictures. Actually, we can also upload via website but most of the time it did not work for me. flickr looks not so friendly to my Konqueror. I have to use Firefox instead.

As you can see above, I was in Ubuntu. So yes, I was in Linux. By using Kflickr, I can now upload any picture to my flickr account from my favorite Linux operating system (now there are 3: SUSE, Ubuntu and Kubuntu).

You may still not believe. Ok, let’s see inside my flickr account…


My intension this morning was to edit my friend’s blog URL, xwanna.blogspot.com, but I was so supprised with a very fancy login screen provided by WordPress.


I cannot guarantee what will be happened after this post. A lot of thing are coming into my mind. They deserve to be in my blog. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday I got a box from SUSE. It’s a gift for my participation in testing and sending the bug that related to Khmer language in SUSE 10.1.

There were 6 installation CDs, 1 DVD (equivalent to those 6 CDs), start-up manual, and a brochure from Linux Magazine.

The whole box was still close with the plastic. Its slogan also caught my attention. It was “Everything you need to get started with Linux”.

Teared the plastic and saw what were inside…

6 installation CDs and 1 DVD.

This is a great present for me. I remembered the first time I started to work on SUSE translation, Karl Eichwalder, one of the SUSE people in charge of translation stuff, told me that I’ll not get any money from SUSE if I work on the translation. Instead, SUSE will offer me a box of the product. Now it got it. I’m so happy to keep and, of cause use it.

Cheer SUSE!
