Where is my mind ?

sitting on my desk, listening to “Where is my mind ?” and actually this is the question.

i didn’t use it for a long time, that i forgot where it is, and now i am searching. have used my heart and passion to live, and now when i lost both, i don’t have the motive to do anything.

this is why i should find my mind.

cause lately i found the difference between people and humans,

people are not nice, but some of them are, and they are rare; i can’t deny i met few humans, but compared to the people “that are not nice”, they are very fewwwwww.

now with my feet on the air and my head on the ground, i am asking : where are you humans ?, where is my mind ?

Ubuntu Course : Mission Accomplished

well, this week has been a busy one for me,
but the highlight of the week is that i gave a full ubuntu course to 15 person, from the introduction, passing through the installation, till the desktop and interface, and alternative applications to those on windows.
the course didnt take much time, only 6 hours as the applicants has previous experience with unix.
it was really a good experience, and i can’t wait to do it again.

and here is some info about Why to use Zend Framework :

Extending the art & spirit of PHP, Zend Framework is based on simplicity, object-oriented best practices, corporate friendly licensing, and a rigorously tested agile codebase. Zend Framework is focused on building more secure, reliable, and modern Web 2.0 applications & web services, and consuming widely available APIs from leading vendors like Google, Amazon, Yahoo!, Flickr, as well as API providers and cataloguers like StrikeIron and ProgrammableWeb.

Expanding on these core themes, we have implemented Zend Framework to embody extreme simplicity & productivity, the latest Web 2.0 features, simple corporate-friendly licensing, and an agile well-tested code base that your enterprise can depend upon.

Extreme Simplicity & Productivity

We designed Zend Framework with simplicity in mind. To provide a lightweight, loosely-coupled component library simplified to provide 4/5s of the functionality everyone needs and that lets you customize the other 20% to meet your specific business needs. By focusing on the most commonly needed functionality, we retain the simplified spirit of PHP programming, dramatically lower the learning curve, and your training costs
