FERMETURE PROVISOIRE POUR CAUSE DE FERMETURE DÉFINITIVE

logoOn 19.06.2014 01:59 EET, I decided you shouldn’t be interested in my opinions on different matters anymore. Blogging has stopped one more time. This blog actually started as a personal agenda, yet with public contents. Then I let it take hold of me too much.

I’m keeping a very limited number of posts for personal use, as a reference. You may still read them, but you cannot add comments. I might keep reorganizing this contents or deleting parts of it.

A very small number of posts were written after the closure of the blog. See the RSS of the most recent posts. A few other posts have been updated as to fix the links. Oh, and the curated list of smartphone apps is updated every once in a while.

Quick facts about the various versions of this blog over time:

  • v1 — May 2005 — hand-made (LAMP) — beranger.zoom.ro, then beranger.org — 2,726 posts
  • v2 — May 2007 — Blogotext — beranger.org — 2,973 new posts
