Tomorrow I'll be leaving for a 10-day trip to the signal processing lab of UFPA (Federal University of Para) in Belem, Brazil. I was kindly invited by Prof. Aldebaro Klautau to hold some lectures and lab exercises regarding Free Software (+Hardware) RFID projects like OpenPCD as well as Free Software GSM projects like OsmocomBB.
I would love to use that opportunity to spend some more time in Brazil for holidays, but my schedule really doesn't allow for anything like that at this time. It's always sad to have to miss such a chance. It would be exactly the right time of the year to spend some time at the beaches of Pernambuco or Alagoas... *sigh*
