I start this blog for sharing with you the tools I have discovered during the past years for
  • writing scientific texts;
  • drawing figures for LaTeX;
  • communicating my writings;
  • keeping my laptop safe and clean;
  • getting organized with a PDA.
The majority of them are free, some are commercial. I only use commercial software if I cannot find a reliable and efficient open alternative.

I use a laptop under Windows XP as my main computer (I have in the past also used Linux as my main system) and a web server under Linux Mandrake (now called Mandriva).

I hope you will appreciate these tools as much as me...
