Zeh birthday is near!

So…. My birthday is near (you can see the countdown timer on the left), and since my previous post about “Xmas presents!” has only got me FNAC vouchers, I’ve decided to give you another list to help you out with my birthday, though the Xmas list is still valid.

I’d also like to point out that there is a poll going on (also on your left) asking for suggestions on where to be on my birthday. If you select “somewhere else”, please say where under this post. Oh… And you can select up to TWO options.

Besides the ones on the Xmas presents post, I’d also like to add:

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.

there’s still a little bit of your taste in my mouth

there’s still a little bit of you laced with my doubt
it’s still a little hard to say what’s going on

– Hi everybody!
– Hi Dr. Nick!

So.. Yes… No updates *shrug*

Updated my computer, so now I am tri-booting Windows, Linux and Mac OS (Tiger, waiting for Leopard to get stable). And boy oh boy, does Tiger fly with a Core 2 Duo E6600 *nods* . Here’s a shot for the suspicious:


Let’s see… I’ve received the photo manipulation I’ve ordered from deviantart.com. The author is Marisa Duque:


So you can see how big it really is. No… Dad and Auntie T, she is not my girlfriend.

And tomorrow I’m having Software Quality Assurance training over at work, so hopefuly tomorrow I will become a Software Quality Assurance Engineer *shrug*
