Blog changes

Hi gang,

 

I have just added a link to the top of the page (where am I), which should show up my location (or at least, where my Blackberry thinks I am). I am still figuring out the frequency I will use to update those values, because that means the mobile phone turning up the GPS, and sending the values through zeh Interwebs, which, of course, costs battery.

 

Also, I would like your help in deciding which gallery system I should keep. The new one, actually fetches the photos from flickr, so it’s more practical for me, as I don’t have to update both the galleries (the andrelemos.com and flickr.com one).

Ps.: try not to judge the galleries based on their contents, but rather on the layout/functionality!

New ISP

Hi gang,

 

Just changed my ISP from Netvisão to MEO, so let me know if you notice something broken.

 

 

bye 🙂

Google Chrome – Google's new browser

Download it NOW! It’s freakin awsome!

It’s only available for Windows for now, but they are working on a Linux and Mac OS/X version.

 

You can read a webcomic about it, or see its features.

It’s very, VERY fast, light and very very simple.

And now, of course, some screenshots:

one thing that I found very cool, and that it should be pretty obvious, is how they sandbox each tab so that a single webpage does not bring the whole browser down. There’s even a task manager for you to monitor WTH is happening 🙂

and of course, lots of other stuff, and some cute, non intrusive animations.

 

give it a go. really. I am sold.

I Wanna be a Pilot II

I Wanna be a Pilot II, originally uploaded by a_lemos.

Started adding my photos to flickr.

I will try, in time, to upload most of my “postable” photos, so many photos should get in there in time.

Be prepared for some surprises 🙂

I am doing this post from flickr directly into my blog, let’s see if this works.

I love technology

I am currently typing this while on an Alfa Pendular, going from Coimbra to Lisbon, where I am going to meet with Marisa in about 30 minutes, and after that, I’m going to have a work meeting.

Even the bandwidth isn’t too bad!

I just tested it, and I am doing 691.36 kbps down and 268.64 kbps up! These are really good results! Better than some cable connections (this is a 3G connection).

I wish my office was here all the time. We get TV, nice comfy chairs, really great landscape, air conditioning, etc… The only bad part is that I have to hear this guy chatting all the time on the phone, but that’s why headphones were invented.

I am happy geek right now 🙂

Neck Strings are Done!

Finally, I’ve committed myself to finish the Neck Strings section on my Auntie Ts website.

On the thumbnails you can have an overall view of the piece, while on the right you can see a macro detail. There are 51 pieces, and the ones you see get tagged so you will know which ones you have already seen, and the ones you haven’t.

I’ve also hosted the flash movie somewhere else, so that you can get pretty decent bandwidth, so the gallery should open up pretty quickly.

Have fun.

Ps.: I envision that I will finish the other sections during this weekend, and perhaps finish the whole site on Tuesday, _tops_.
