Bye Bye Touch

Yesterday got rid fo my Kindle Touch.
It served me good for close to a year, used it to read about a dozen books or so.
But. lately I've been reading more and more on the Nexus 7, and also I'm really tempted to get a Paperwhite.

What's Real?

After 3 incomplete runs (been totally covered by work this last week) finally got to see "Pacific Rim" today.
Pretty hectic film, full of blasts, explosions and special effects.
Nevertheless I would prefer to have one or two real scale models here and there.
But that's me.

Hammering Lucifer

Well, I've finished the last Bowden one, at least for now.
It wasn't as good as it originally promised, but it was entertaining nevertheless.
Got my hands on Lucifer's Hammer, still on really, really early stage right now... will see...
For the little I've read, it looks like a Peyton Place spin off, hope it speeds up really soon.

Spring? Where?

As usual, Spring around here lasts for just a whiff.
And then we're fucked.

Another Bowden... (once again)

I've discover this book last Wednesday, jump right onto it.
Your usual straight no BS Bowden book, I love it, about 40% read so far.
A nice recount of the history of the internet, been a while since I've read an history book on the subject, this one stands on some very good ones dealing with the subject, like "Where Wizards Stay Up Late", "The Cuckoo's Egg" & "Cyberpunk", all of those I've read years and years ago.

Sun screen for the Kindle App

A little one that does help a lot, and I really mean a lot, when you're using the Nexus 7 to read ebooks, via the Kindle app.
Since the Kindle app refuses to honor the brightness settings from the own Nexus 7, it really blinds you, and that is literally blinds, specially if you read on the dark.
And its a freebie.

House Of Cons


 I've watched it this weekend, guess for the first time in over to something like 20 years or so.
Except for some obvious turn of the century facts that would make the history totally unviable today, the film ages quite well.
Ruiz Anchía's cinematography is amazing.

The current Linux Mint desktop

Another one of those trendy, slightly fuzzy & eco friendly wallpapers that are all the rage at the moment ;)
The theme is called FrostyMint.

The hangs is here (again)

This last Tuesday another one of those really hangs happened...
Not sure if its hardware related, on this case, my P&S camera was connected to the lappie, and it actually happened when I was un mounting it.

Re-watching Bad

So, it is finally over.
Last night pulled the plug on the last 3 episodes.
I guess The Sopranos had a better ending.
Anyway, it left me with the itch, so I guess I'll re-watch the whole thing from season 1 once again.

Another Otterbox in the family

Today got me another Otterbox thingy, this time for the Nexus 7.
I love it, even more than the one for the BB.
Mighty expensive for a case, but damn, the thing is sturdy as hell, and it protects the hell of the Nexus.
