First iMovie projects

Just did my first iMovie projects. It seems easy enough to do some simple things. There are some really awesome project themes, but I don’t have enough clips to make something decent as of now. Anyway, it should be enough for me, without diving into Final Cut Pro.

First macro test

Me and Marisa are more and more happy about the Sanyo VPC HD2000. Below you’ll find a video I shot this morning just to check its macro capabilities, which apparently aren’t that bad.

Going through the motions with this camera has made me realize that I haven’t had the time lately to enjoy the fine photographic equipment I have, mainly the enlarger, and the fine lenses for the Zeiss. I can only wish I get the time and opportunity to enjoy all of this, as well as this video camera.

The holidays season is approaching at a fast pace, so I can only hope I get to enjoy my hobbies to the fullest with Marisa.

On other news, some professional changes may happen during this next week. We’ll see. I promise I’ll try to keep you posted.

Photo History

Well… My own…

During a debate on an internal mailing list on the company where I work, we started discussing the pros and cons of digital against analogic photography. Of course, I couldn’t stand still, so, along the day, I ended up writting a really big e-mail (in Portuguese, sorry folks), with the path I have done, photography wise.

You’ll probably find some rants along the way, so be sure to wear your protection hat.

Life from MMS

I haven’t been updating this, but I have been taking some MMS to send to my sweetheart Marisa throughout the day, so I thought, why not share. It’s crapy, boring, but it’s a post! Do not have fun with this.

Hey there!

This weekend was great! I went to Marisa’s farm house near Ferreira do Zêzere, and I have spent a really great time while there! It’s a really peaceful place, with great landscapes.

I think the highlights were obviously, the time we’ve spent together, either when cuddling, sweeping the patio, catching oranges or running on the river shore (I obviously outran her :-P, and don’t you dare denying this!).

Her family was really nice to me, and are great folks all around. The weather was a bit chilly, but other than that, all was perfect 🙂

I suppose the highlight of the highlights was when visiting Dornes’ [1][2][photo] church, that is situated in a peninsula, the friendly church keeper promised us that when we’d get married, she’d fill Dornes’ church with flowers, and any time we’d go back, we could sleep over at her place. I think she really liked us, and thought we were married from the get go, because filling a church with flowers isn’t an easy, nor cheap task.

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 🙂

All these dirty words

They make us look so dumb
Been drinking far too much
And neither of us mean what we say
Well you and I
Collapsed in love
And it looks like we might have made it, yes it looks like we’ve made it to the end
What happened to us
Soon it will be gone forever
Infatuated only with ourselves
And neither of us can think straight anymore
(chorus x 2)

BlurTo the End

As promised on the previous post, here’s a large post for your own indulgence.

Deus dá asas à minha cobra

Não sou freira nem sou puta

Porque nem toda a feiticeira é crocunda

Just a small update, because I’m prolly going to get stupid busy during the upcoming week.

I’ve installed Leopard 10.5.1 running the original Apple kernel (yay EFI).


The wallpaper is really a running application called EarthDesk (runs in both Windows and MAC) that features real-time clouds, and it looks really cool! This app though, does not come for free (it costs 23.95$ USD), so if you are not running Leopard (but are running Tiger), then give OSXplanet a try! Besides EarthDesk’s features, it also shows you live data about volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.

Now… Back to me.

I’ve updated this blog’s theme (as you’ve probably noticed by now) because it has 3 columns that I can now use to have more widgets. I know there are still some bugs in it (scroll all the way down, and you’ll know what I mean), but it fits the bill nicely for now.Busy wise… I’m having 2 exams next week, and besides that, at work, I’ve been assigned to another project related to the Galileo positioning system (without leaving the other one, so I am now in two), and my first task is to review a Detailed Design Document (it has 300+ pages IIRC).On top of that, I’m also going to show case my Chat application to the Innovation Board (or some fancy name like that) over at Critical Software by the end of the week (which is an exam day).

So yeah…. lol. It’s 11:20 by now, so I’m going to have a shower, shave, have lunch, go to the gym, and study/review document/code/fiddle (I’m a fiddler, I need to fiddle), so don’t whine about it.

OH OH OH OH And I’m also going to Jayme‘s place (it’s his birthday today! YAY!) on Saturday afternoon, so I’ll have to make up for that as well.

I just wish Marisa had invited me to go to Lisbon this afternoon. It would’ve been good for me to gather some strength to face this troublesome period.
