My new blog

Hi there !

After some solicitation from third parties (read: libssh developers), I finally installed a real blog to replace more or less my wiki-based website. I’m going to discuss some things about libssh development, thoughts about programming, networks, computer security and internet.

I’ll take the occasion to tell about the FOSDEM convention that took place this week-end. Awesome meeting of opensource developers, it was a great occasion to meet people, in particular Andreas which is a libssh developer as well. It’s also interesting to note that this is the fist time FOSDEM is connected to the IP world through BELNET (note: I work for BELNET). FOSDEM was connected to BELNET on IPv4 and IPv6 using fiber, and this bandwidth was distributed to users through WiFi access points distributed in the ULB campus. The bandwidth used peaked around 100 Mbit/s (a poor 1/10th of the available bandwidth) due to technical limitation of airwaves, but I’m sure the tech staff will find a solution for next year. Also interesting to note, an IPv4 was available for each participant (two /19 were allocated) and the IPv6/IPv4 enabled ratio was around 90%.

I’m looking forward for more good stuff next year !
