Born January 09
Occupation BSD Student
Expected Graduation May 2009

Welcome, my name's Armen Zambrano Gasparnian, I've come to Canada last year on February from Spain; I hate computers but I love what I can do with them. It's a privilege to be studying the Bachelor in Software Development (BSD) that Seneca offers, because I think is very challenging. Before coming here I took a degree in Computer Engineering in the University of Malaga

I have already studied in University of Malaga a degree in Computer Engineering which affected me badly :)

Collected Information

Windows Vista

How did I build the first time? I don't know; I decided to find out, therefore, I was looking to see if I had the "Windows SDK" and I have found this:

  • Windows SDK for Vista and .NET Framework 3.0:
  1. (ISO download - 6.0.6000.0.0.WindowsSDK_Vista_rtm.DVD.Rel.img, 6.0.6000, 11/4/2006)
  2. (Web Setup - Setup.exe, 11/7/2006, 1 KB-1185.7 MB*)
  • Windows SDK Update for Windows Vista ISO Download:
  1. (ISO download 6.1.6000.16384.10.WindowsSDK_Vista_Feb2007Update_rtm.DVD.Rel.iso, 6.0, 3/22/2007, 1180.1 MB)
  2. (Web Setup - Setup.exe, 3/22/2007, 1 KB-1178.3 MB*)

I don't know if the update brings what the initial package brings (pay attention to size - for being an update it looks HUGE)

Past contributions

  • I have helped Dave and Shaver to set up some USB keys for something with Mozilla and SickKids - follow the Uninstall U3 from Mozilla USB keys and add PortableApps with FF2.0.0.3
  • Category:Mozilla for beginners - This is a subcategory of M@S that wraps pages that introduce students to Mozilla@Seneca
  • We could also add this line: $wgFavicon = "$wgScriptPath/Favicon.png"; to the LocalSettings.php file
  • I would like to categorize Mozilla@Seneca's wiki, I will work this summer with Dave to see what we can do about this. I don't think that it will happen
  • We could add this extension to the wiki (Add Article to Category) and start organizing things by categories
  • Add some iTunes feeds for the Mozilla Lectures I will leave this for the moment
 Dave suggested me to use this Daapd
