Process

For any request, I recommend you to contact me via the form on this website. Your message may contain a first idea of your request, which results to an estimate to analysis your needs. After you validate the estimate, the analysis of your needs is done, depending on the way you desire: at home, on phone, via instant messaging or any communication way (MSN, Skype, IRC). If the anticipated time is lower than the effective spent time, the bill will be lower than the mentioned price on the estimate too. If an opposed phenomenon happens, the customer will not pay for the additional spent time.

The resulting advice will enable you, if desired and depending on your situation, to choose one of my services. If you do not want that, you only will have to pay for the consulting service mentioned above. If you choose one of the installation or making an accessible computer service, I establish an estimate which includes the consulting time, with a lower price. Once you validated it and pay for the service, it starts. Again, the additional spent time will not be paid if the customer is not responsible for this increase. As opposed, if the service spends less time than we thought, the difference is refunded.

While I prefer adapting an environment or making a computer physically, the training can be performed remotely. Depending on the skills and the needs of the customer, I also can set up the environment remotely.

Finally, this step can result to a support service, for one year you can renew. The answer delay for any support request is 24 hours maximus (often lower delay actually). You can do the support request via phone or e-mail. To send an e-mail, you need use the contact form. To phone, the phone number is given while you choose the service.

The mentioned prices are for a unit, i.e. one hour (or one year for the support service). It does not mean that the service is done with one hour. The mentioned price, on the estimate and the bill, will be different and adjusted depending on the number of hours needed to perform the service.

Again, the additional spent time will not be paid if the customer has no responsibility in this increasing. As opposed, if the service spends less time than I thought, the difference is removed from the final bill.

Finally, this step can result to a support service, for one year you can renew. It means you can contact me from Monday to Saturday, between 8am and 7pm, and get a support. You can do the support request via phone or e-mail. To send an e-mail, you need use the contact form. To phone, the phone number is given while you choose the service.

Services

Please contact me for prices that we should define together. Indeed, it is important to discuss the price depending on your specific situation.

However, the price always will not include any tax. For two reasons: firstly, the customers are not submitted to the VAT thanks to my status. Secondly and subsequently, you will not be able to retrieve the VAT, as you will not pay for it.

Products

The main purpose of the project is not to sell any product. The products I sell (computers, devices, Windows, ...) only are designed to avoid the customer to buy them directly oneself to the computing professionals (and thus to have two interlocutors). I only sell to pay for my own buying to the provider of the hardware which suits to your needs.

I sell only four products.

Consulting

It is a service which has the form of a document, which is the product.

It is a law analysis and public politics study about a theme related to the Free philosophy, resulting to an introduction of the situation, prospectives and issues.

You can ask this product via e-mail too, in order to agree about the details of the cusnomer's desires.

Formation Debian GNU/Linux

This French document is for beginners but especially advanced Windows users who would like to learn advanced Debian usage and administration. The authors propose for this to explain the step-to-step Debian installation, with details about every concept while they are needed: free shmtware, Debian, the devices and the file systems, the tree, the commandline, the graphical system, the network services... I provide the paper release for 90 euros, the printing price for 287 pages. accelibreinfo contributes to the document and I hope I will introduce in it some sections about the accessibility issue.

The authors are Alexis de Lattre, Rémy Garrigue, Tanguy Ortolo, Adrien Grand, Loïc Alsfasser, Patrick Burri, and Brian Fraval.

Linux From Scratch

This 300 pages book describes how to build a whole system from the source code of the software. The French release has the price 52 euros, this English costs 50 euros, because there are more pages in English.

The authors of the original English release are Gerard Beekmans (original), Matthew Burgess and Bruce Dubbs (maintainers).

The French release is translated by Traduc.org.

Debian CDs and DVDs

Debian is a free operating system for your computer. An operating system is the basic software and utilities suite which enable a computer to work. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of the operating system), but most basic tools are from the GNU project; hence the name: GNU/Linux.

A less stable and official release is based on a freeBSD kernel.

Debian GNU/Linux is much more than an operating system: it contains thousands of packages (about 30.000); the packages are software pre-built and designed to be installed easily on your machine.

Debian is one of the backends of accelibreinfo project. Since my purpose is enabling any user, in particular with a sight disability, to be standalone, I provide Debian on a floppy support for people who do not have a fast Internet connection to download it in reasonable delays. It can occur if you are in a country without ADSL, but also if you work with some proxy.

Several supports are available: version 52 CDs or version 8 DVDs.

All the architectures are provided, included:

- PC 32 bits (i386) [i386]   
- PC 64 bits (amd64) [amd64]   
- EABI ARM [armel]
- PowerPC [powerpc]   
- SPARC [sparc]   
- Intel Itanium IA-64 [ia64]
- MIPS (petit-boutiste) [mipsel]
- HP PA-RISC [hppa]   
-
- kFreeBSD PC 64 bits (amd64) [kfreebsd-amd64]   
- kFreeBSD PC 32 bits (i386) [kfreebsd-i386]   
- IBM S/390 [s390]
- MIPS (gros-boutiste) [mips]

Debian GNU/Linux costs 70 euros. Debian KfreeBSD costs 60 euros because I cannot warranty any support.

The last stable release is provided. Nowadays, I provide version 6.0.3, named Squeeze, released in 2011.

Note that accelibreinfo does not give back a part of the price to Debian. However, as the end of every year, a part of the accelibreinfo's benefits are donated to the Debian project; the other is for upstream projects such as NVDA and Orca.

Finally, note that the price allows me to donate to Debian, to buy CDs with tax, and to send you them physically.
