<h2>Stop Software Patents in Europe!</h2>

<p>
The European Parliament is going to vote on software patents soon. Already,
many harmful and/or trivial patents were accepted in Europe, which are just
waiting for a proper legal status to become enforcable.
</p>

<p>
While it is not necessary that all software patents are invalid, obviously
most of them are, and so the best thing to do is to prevent them from becoming
legally enforcable. Stop software patents now!

<h2>News</h2>

<h3 class="newsitem">30-Oct-2004</h3>

<p class="newsitem">
Added the <a href="$(ROOT)/open-source/bits.html">Open-Source Bits and 
Bobs page</a>. Added the 
<a href="$(ROOT)/work/academic/Thermo/Material-Summary/">material summary
for the Thermodynamics course I took in the Technion</a>.
</p>

<h3 class="newsitem">12-Oct-2004</h3>

<p class="newsitem">
The site has a new URL, which should cause less name-service resolution
problems. The new domain is 
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/">http://www.shlomifish.org/</a>. The
old domain will redirect to the new one.
</p>

<h3 class="newsitem">23-Sep-2004</h3>

<p class="newsitem">
The site has seen a major revamp in the last couple of days. Here is a list
of the most important changes and news:
</p>

<ol class="newsitem">
<li>
I added the <a href="http://swpat.ffii.org/">"Stop Software Patents!"</a> nag 
image to all my pages and a top frame to the front page.
</li>
<li>
There's a new code for the navigation menu. The old code was an unholy mess,
and the new code is a pure Perl one, which makes the nav-menu much easier
to maintain.
</li>
<li>
Thanks to the new navigation menu code, there are now Mozilla/Firefox 
navigation links, that allow traversing the site page by page. For those who
are unfortunate enough not to use these browsers, some rudimentary arrows were
added above the navigation menu.
</li>
<li>
I now have an Uber-kitchy leading path of the page sections and sub-sections at 
the top.
</li>
<li>
I'm now <a href="./work/private-lessons/">giving private lessons</a> in
high-school subjects and computer-related topics.
</li>
