Anyway, anoche son~e con un que estaba en el cine y estaba viendo esta pelicula documental sobre un asesino en serie a lo Buffalo Bill (Silence of The Lambs) pero mas nasty y lo peor es que el cabron le gustaba dejar los pellejos de la gente colgando en lugares publicos. Despues dever el documental salgo del cine y me encuentro a mi hermano mayor y su familia y el tenia este station wagon bieeeen retro y me ofrecio pon a casa. Yo iba atras jugando con los sobrinitos (que en este suenyo estaban de lo mas dociles y no son las bestias incontrolables de ADD que normalmente son) y de alguna manera tenia el presentimiento de que el serial killer nos estaba siguiento.

El otro fue que estaban filmando una pelicula aqui y de alguna manera termino envuelto en la produccion. La cuestion es que aparentemente le cai bien al actor principal y a Harvey Keitel. Los dos estabamos bebiendo y jodiendo y si tuve mi momento de fanboy con Mr. Keitel y el tipo era como de lo mas humilde. El supuestamente me dijo que solo fue un tipo con suerte cuyo curriculum vitae sobresalio de toda una ernorme pila de resumes que habian dejado al momento de el buscar su primer guiso. Yo quede como que ???????? but that's a nearly coherent drunken rant to you.....

Y para finalizar, son~e que estaba en una abadia a lo The Order (Si. Sacerdotes que usan magia y la pendejada). Era una abadia enorme. La cuestion es que llega este chamaco dizque a arreglar unas computadoras ahi. Le ensen~o donde estan y me voy a una parte de la abadia a meditar y ver el paisaje de ahi. Un lugar enorme. La cuestion es que de repente veo al chamaco viniendo del otro lado montado en una motora y va en mi direccion. De alguna manera mi sexto sentido me dice que por ahi viene la caca y cuando el tipo se me acerca, el cabron es un hombre lobo. El cabron me viene a caer en cima y yo cogo dos cosas que tenia en mi sotana que resultan ser inyecciones con nitrato de plata. Se las pongo en el cuello y le salgo con

"mira cantodecabron. yo se que debajo de toda esa masa de pelo hay un ser humano. y yo se que puedes oler el nitrato de plata que tengo en estas inyecciones bien cerquita de tu cuello. tu podras meterme las manos y quizas matarme, pero yo con solo pincharte y que esta mierda entre en tu sangre, te jodiste. asi que tu yo lo pienso mejor antes de apuntarte la cherry comingo, capisce?"

el cabron revertio a humano, se disculpa y se larga de ahi como alma que lleva el diablo.

breguen con eso.

Last week I managed to get together with my lovely girlfriend and actually have some quality time. Lots of it. And loved every nanosecond of it. She's so lovely and these days I can only sleep like a baby if she's around. Stayed with Viv and Stiv until Monday morning. Viv was sick but still we watched movies and had fun.

Fast forward to this week. More drama at home. Just when I think I should stick around for a bit to save some money to make my move, down comes more family drama. Frankly, I'm not interested. *Sighs* I realized a long time ago the concept of a family unit does not exist anymore in that household. Not my problem anymore. I just stopped caring.

Watched The Shield Season Finale yesterday. Mixed feelings about it. There are enough loose ends for the next season but still I wanted a bit more.

Two days ago, I was out and on my way to work and out of nowhere this old guy from the neighborhood asks me if I needed a ride to work. I am very fucking paranoid regarding strangers, but I guess my detector didn't go off with this coot. Nice guy. Looking for a conversation. Drove me to work. Anyway, he's from the neighborhood, so I know where he lives. Still, it was odd but nice.

Well until yesterday we had almost a month without a stream at the station so after 8 long years of my last offer to them to do it, the powers at be took my offer seriously. Nevermind that the bright minds spent over $3000 on an equipment that does not work at all. God was I laughing while setting the streams. Anyway, wrote two nice and long letters to the station manager about it. Working things with Eze so we get that responsibility.

Anyway, got my contract renewed and a small raise. Hooray! And apparently the job I want is just around the corner. We just have to get things in motion.

My baby was without a phone and without internet for a while, but we still keep in touch. She's so amazing. I had one of those long chats on the phone and I find myself trusting this woman with everything and I don't mind at all. Lovely.

Batman Begins started today and because I had to put the finishing touches on the station's streams, I had to pass seeing it with Joel. Tomorrow there's an office party and I don't think I will attend. Too tired and probably too brain fried from today and tomorrow.

Sleeping with this heat is hellish, but I will have to grin and bear it.

Oh, and lest I forget. Yes, I still manage to get people riled, give them enough rope and they dutifully hang themselves. Gotta love it when these pathetic fucks make asses out of themselves with little or no prodding.

I want to see Madagascar, Batman Begins, Land of The Dead, my baby, meet my feline equivalent, and play with my nephews.

I owe Vero some cd's with music.

Out!

Might as well take advantage of this spare moment I have to actually write something, huh? So aside from my lovely little gatherings with my lovely girlfriend, I've had tons of stuff to do. Just because your boss is away on vacation doesn't mean there is nothing to do. Lots of work. Little sleep due to the hellish heat despite a nice little fan. I actually look forward to see my girlfriend tomorrow and have two days of peace and quiet. Was looking for an apartment to move but only one that I'm interested. Paid my bills. Bought a gig of RAM for my laptop. Right now I need a nap and today is the longest day of my work week. Looking forward to watch "Madagascar" and "High Tension". Also been getting lots of music to listen to and collect. Ask my girlfriend. Teehee!

Linux is making a name for itself as a better and more secure system. Mandriva managed to fuse this with one of the most user friendly distributions ever created.


Mandriva Linux 2005: The Next Generation Distro ?

Linux ?? Woohaa! What's that ?!?!

Linux is becoming more of a frequent word when it comes to choosing an Operating System. Gone are the days when Windows was THE operating system for the average home user. Linux was then considered to be only for technical ppl or for those that could spend hours on end configuring their system. However the waters are shifting. Linux distributions have become better and more user friendly over the years while retaining their characterising stability. To prove this I have just run a completely new installation of Mandriva Linux 2005 limited edition. Mandriva Linux ( formerley known as Mandrake linux) has always been renowed as one of the most user friendly distributions available. Mandriva Linux is available for several architectures (types) of the cpu family. Mainly it is available for PPC (power PC ) which are machines running Motorola based Processors ( these are mainly Mac computers), i586 is for 32-bit processors both from Intel and AMD. These include the Intel Pentium 4 and The AMD athlon. (this is probably the distribution you need to get ) x86-64 is for processors which are 64-bit compatible such as the AMD64 processor.

The beginning: Getting the distro...

As all other linux distributions, Mandriva LE2005 is distributed under the GPL ( General public licence) and is available to everybody by downloading the appropriate cd images from one of the many public ftp servers and burning them to cd. Alternatively Mandriva may send you a boxed edition containing cds and manuals for the first time user for a reasonable fee. With this you get more software than one would get with the downloadable version. The last way to obtain linux distributions is as easy and is what I did...buy a computer magazine which has as give away cds a full linux distribution. In my case this month was Mandriva Linux and here I am writing this article using my free linux distribution using Open Office.org 1.1.4 which is a free office suite distributed with Mandriva Linux and many other Distros (more on this later). Remeber that all linux distribution cds can be copied freely and distributed, so if you get a distribution don't keep it for yourself but make copies and give it out to all your friends! BE careful to download the correct version for your processor class. Normally the typical home user would need the i586 version although this may not always be the case.

Preparation: Installing the System...

Mandriva comes as a bootable cd, this means that all one has to do to start the installation process is to turn on his computer and put in the first cd (or the dvd if using the dvd version) into the drive. This will load the setup process and load all information needed. Up till now nothing any more difficult that a windows installation right ? No...thought so :) The obvious thing to do in such a situation is to follow the instructions given. One important part of the setup is partitioning. Probably most of those installing Linux for the first time, will have windows as their main system. So how to install Mandriva and still retain your windows partition ? ( a partition is a section of the hard disk which is reserved entitrely for the operating system's use). Luckily enough Mandriva has thought of this and thus provides the option to remove some free space from the Windows partition and use it as space to install itself on. For a comfortable install 5-10 Gb of space are recommended. Other options are very straight forward. Setup will prompt you to choose a security level. Standard level is recommended for home users. You may set this to higher levels according to one's wish. However this might restrict some options and access. Such levels of security are only needed if the linux installation is intended for use as a server.
The nice thing about linux is the choice of what is to be installed. In windows you get very few options of what can be installed and what not, however in linux you can choose what to install. Such options include: Workstation ( this will install a complete Office suite), multimedia station ( Installs media players and movie players) and may others. Obviously help is given to understand better what each choice does. There is also a choice of servers which unless you know what you are doing, one should leave alone. These include Web and ftp servers: to be able to serve your own webpages from your computer. When one has chosen all the packages to install, these are installed. The last step of setup, after installation of packages is complete, is that to install a bootloader. This is a simple menu that will run everytime one turns on the computer and provides the facility to choose which operating system to be loaded...Windows or linux. The reamining options are that to enter a root password (this password is needed to be able to modify system files which are otherwise restricted) and add a user. Final options are setting up of mouse, keyboard, language and network settings. Done that rebooting is the only option left!


Setting up a Root password



Choosing which packages to install


Takeoff: Controlling the beast...erm.. penguin

Up till now I have reviewed the installation process, but what about the system itself ? Mandriva Linux instantly impresses the user with it's sleek appearance. The system, for those that love their windows counterpart, looks amazingly like that of Windows Xp. The Kicker (taskbar) has mainly the same features as it's counterpart in windows. It provides easy access to many programs and also encapsulates various applets in it. An example of a wonderful applet is Kweather that provides up to date weather information from various weather stations including the Maltese weather station in Luqa, thus I can have the current weather report at any time including wind force and dew point!
Mandriva also comes loaded with tons of programs according to the packages chosen during setup. A few are openoffice.org which is a complete office suite and is able to open Microsoft office files and is able to handle many file formats with added support to ecport files as pdf files. Also one finds a choice of multi-protocol instant messaging clients ( a client that can support msn, yahoo, jabber and many other protocols) These are Kopete and gaim and both have a myriad of features. Mandriva also comes with three web browsers to choose from ( yes you are spoilt for choice ;) ) This also includes the now famous Firefox browser which has now surpassed the 50 million download mark and is known to be the most secure browser in the browser market. Mandriva manages also to defy the popular belief that Linux is no good when it comes to multimedia performance. Not only Mandriva comes with programs to play music such as Totem media player and Kaffeine but also provides tools to edit music, play audio cds, rip audio cds and record audio. Image editing ? We got that too! Mandriva comes loaded with The Gimp, a first grade image editor, which have also been used to edit some of the screenshots taken. Screenshots can also be taken with the help of Ksnapshot, an excellent program which not only allows to take simple screenshots but also enables the selection of the area to be captured.
Mandriva's list of programs is almost unlimited, too much to list here, but to mention a few:

K3B – a first rate CD and DVD burner
ARK– File compression Utility
Nautilus – A very light but efficient File manager
Kwrite -- File editing utility
Kontact – Mail managing utility
Kdenlive – Video Editor


How your desktop will look with some proggies running


These are only a few of the many applications that can be found in Mandriva but what about installing new ones ? Mandriva Linux supports rpms. These are partly the equivalent of exe files in windows in the sense that they automate the process of installing new programs which would need to be compiled separately and installed in a more complicated process. Thus many websites of open source software offer pre-compiled rpms that can be installed on the system by a double-click. A good example of a program I installed on my new Mandriva Box was amsn ( http://amsn.sf.net ). Although the system has gaim and kopete which both support msn messaging, I prefer having a more dedicated program (although this is just a personal opinion). Thus I visited the amsn website and downloaded the Mandriva rpm. Double-clicked on it and Hey presto amsn was installed on my system and ready to be used.


The penguin gets an added bonus!

Mandriva Linux can also be updated to the latest secuurity fixes provided by Mandriva ( Mandriva is the company that produces Mandriva Linux ) through the very user friendly RpmDrake. Rpmdrake is a program that when run synchronises with one of the many mirrors available and lists any security updates, bug fixes or simple updates available for your system. This makes sure that the system is always secure and up to date with the click of a button. Through Rpmdrake, one can also install bug fixes for the various programs installed and also updates for them. One might argue that Linux can be quite a limited system without an internet connection, however it is no more limited than any other operating system with the added advantage that linux distributions are updated regularly with new releases that are used to upgrade the system.


Let the force be with you!

As you have seen, a Mandriva linux box is no more difficult to set up than a windows system. It is all very straight forward and easy to do, although this might seem much more complicated to the new user. Don't get discouraged though, Linux is all about trying out new things and learning more about one's computer. Thus as a last note, I'd like to remind that google has a linux only search engine at www.google.com/linux , where one can search linux related articles and tutorials. Also for those that do not want to plough ahead with a full linux install before trying out the system, they can download one of the live cds many famous distributions prepare. A live cd is a full system which works entirely from a cd-rom. Thus the data on any hard disks present is safe from damage while one can try out a new system. A few distributions that have live cds are Mandriva, Ubuntu and Mepis. Remember that the first distribution you try may not be the best one for you, so look around and see what is best for you! :D

CVS launches disposal digital camcorder in the U.S.

0 observations
Technology News Article | Reuters.com: "NEW YORK (Reuters) - CVS Corp. (CVS.N: Quote, Profile, Research) on Monday begun selling a disposable digital camcorder which the No. 2 U.S. drugstore chain hopes would boost its photo lab business and be as popular as the single-use film and digital cameras.

The $29.99 pocket-sized camcorder was developed by Pure Digital Technologies Inc., a San Francisco-based start-up company.

Jonathan Kaplan, chief executive of Pure Digital, told Reuters in an interview the camcorder's launch made CVS the nation's first retailer to offer such a camcorder but it would be eventually be distributed widely as other retailers sign up to sell it.

The camcorder weighs under 5 ounces and holds 20 minutes of digital video and sound. It features a 1.4 inch color playback screen and an ability to delete video, and it saves video on a memory chip instead of tapes.

After shooting, customers have to return the recyclable camcorder to their local CVS store and its contents would then be transferred onto a DVD disc to view and share for a $12.99 processing fee.

Single-use film and digital cameras have been cited by analysts as among key drivers of repeat visits to stores, helping traditional photo processors like drugstores and supermarkets mitigate the effects of a declining film market.

The camcorder is manufactured in China and the memory chip is supplied by Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. (005930.KS: Quote, Profile, Research) , the world's largest memory chip maker.

The one-time-use camera category has grown to be 218 million units annually and is expected to account for 38 percent of total film volume in the United States this year, according to Mike Wolf, director of digital photography trends at market research firm, InfoTrends/CAP Ventures.

'A simple and affordable one-time use digital camcorder,' he said in a statement, 'could spur growth in the digital video market in a similar way.'
