when no one cares

Just another WordPress site

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!

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.

Testing GPS tracking

Windows 7. β-version

Ora bem,

hoje vou fazer um post reduzido – sim, pela primeira vez. Como dá para perceber pelo título, vou falar de algo relativamente ao último Windows e  a sua versão beta. Não sei se os gaijos do Windows são perspicazes ou têm falta de originalidade… Apesar de ser uma “mal-dizenta” do Win., a verdade é que uso este SO. No entanto, tenho o Kubuntu para me ir salvando.

Em conversa com o menino André, acabei por contar-lhe um facto que ele desconhecia. (YAY!!! 😀 ) Sugeriu-me substituir o Win Vista pela Versão beta do Win 7, e no final da instalação comentei o wallpaper com ele… Aparentemente, o meu menino desconhecia as raízes ou o porquê do wallpaper que este windows tem – por “defeito”. Assim, sugeriu-me criar um post sobre o facto que se segue.

Antes de inciar, gostava de saber qual a percentagem de utilizadores da versão beta do Win. 7 que sabe o “PORQUÊ?” da escolha do wallpaper inicial, quando terminamos a instalação. Mas pronto… o INE ainda não fornece este tipo de dados. Read more…

New photos

I have been uploading lots of photos to my flickr account lately, so be sure to check them out, after the break 🙂

These photos are ordered from oldest upload, to most recent (on flickr). On the newest ones, I have been using SilverFast Ai Studio, and it really kicks ass! All these photos are scanned from negatives.

Oh Tempo…

Já vos contei a lengalenga do Tempo? Isto após uma série de improvisações já não bate muito certo, mas é algo assim: o Tempo perguntou ao Tempo: quanto Tempo o Tempo tem? E o Tempo respondeu ao Tempo: o Tempo tem todo o Tempo,  quanto Tempo o Tempo tem!

Bom, nem será preciso dizer que quem sofreu com esta lengalenga foi o André… ‘tadinho!!! E ainda criei uma variação dessa lengalenga mas com o “álcool”, enfim… comédias de quando estamos juntos.

Ora, aqui estou para mais um post só mesmo uma coisinha rápida para actualizar…
