Welcome to this World!

Queen D has one more member in her family. The guilty one? Her brother who became the happy daddy of a little boy.

For a first attempt, congratulations! See below how cute he is 🙂

He was born on February 20.

This picture was shot by the hospital nurse.

It is not the first baby in her family: the sister of Queen D (and so of the daddy of this cute little boy) is the mother of a sweet little girl, Emma (shame on me, I forgot her age; I think around 8 or 10 years old).

The funny thing is that when I received this picture this morning, I rotated it to see which version I will choose to keep (finally the original’s one 🙂 ); I was so surprised to realize that the smile of this little boy is exactly the same than the smile of his cousin, Emma!

His name is not decided yet the process, as usual in Taiwan, taking several days.

I had no time to visit him, but I will soon 🙂

Do his fists mean:

Don’t mess with me otherwise I will punch you

or

Where is my milk? Better I get it right away otherwise…

🙂

Computers and… Movies

I am always amazed by the capacities of the computers and their weirdness in the movies.

See for example:

– A hacker can get into the most sensitive computer in the world before intermission and guess the secret password in two tries.

– Any PERMISSION DENIED has an OVERRIDE function. (See “Demolition Man” and countless others)

– Complex calculations and loading of huge amounts of data will be accomplished in under three seconds. Movie modems transmit data at a speed of two gigabytes per second.

– If you display a file on the screen and someone deletes the file, it also disappears from the screen. (e.g., “Clear and Present Danger”)

– If a disk has got encrypted files, you are automatically asked for a password when you try to access it.

– No matter what kind of computer disk it is, it’ll be readable by any system you put it into. All application software is usable by all computer platforms.

– The more high-tech the equipment, the more buttons it has (“Aliens”). However, everyone must have been highly trained, because the buttons aren’t labeled.

– Most computers, no matter how small, have reality-defying three-dimensional, real-time, photo-realistic animated graphics capability.

Keep your Private Files Secured

One of the ongoing themes during the 2000 Presidential campaign was Al Gore and his “lock box.” While he was addressing the handling of the Social Security program, we’ve found a lock box that handles the security of your data.

My Lockbox is a tool that lets you password protect folders on your Windows system. When you set up a protected directory, that folder is invisible to all users and applications on your system, as well as to anybody else on your network. To access your protected directory, just fire-up the control panel in the Windows Start menu, and log in. You can also define a hot key to use to make it even easier to get into your protected directory.

My Lockbox requires Windows 2000 or later, and supports 64-bit environments as well.

Good app.

And it’s free. To download, go HERE

Enjoy 🙂

Cocorico!

 

                

The French actress, Marion Cotillard won the Best Actress Oscar for her work in “La Vie en Rose” (La môme).

It is the first time since Simone Signoret in 1960 that a French actress receives the highest award, especially for a French speaking movie.

Earlier, she also won a Golden Globe, a Cesar and a Bafta for her performance in the same movie.

Bravo!

You won’t lose your mind with Keep-It

 

                                  

As you work your way through revision after revision of a document, have you ever realized that you just shouldn’t have made that last change? How do you go back and undo it? You may just be out of luck, unless you’re using Keep-It.

Keep-It is a real world archive tool that sit somewhere between a version control system and a file archive system. You don’t need to check documents in and out, so you don’t have to remember to do anything—hey, if you remembered, you wouldn’t have gotten into this situation to start with!

Archives comprise “snapshots”, a moment-in-time capture of your document. You can create them as needed, or schedule them in advance, so you’re always protected. Keep-It compresses the archive it creates, so you aren’t filling up all your spare disk space with changes. Browsing through your snapshots is easy, using its Windows Explorer-like interface.

It’s a Windows app.

If you want to download this free software, it’s HERE

Enjoy 🙂

Rude Parrot

A lady was walking down the street to work and she saw a parrot on a perch in front of a pet store.

The parrot said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.” Well, the lady is furious! She stormed past the store to her work.

On the way home she saw the same parrot and it said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.”

She was incredibly upset now. The next day the same parrot again said to her, “Hey lady, you are really ugly.”

The lady was so upset that she went into the store and said that she would sue the store and kill the bird. The store manager replied, “That’s not good,” and promised he wouldn’t say it again.

When the lady walked past the store that day after work the parrot called to her, “Hey lady.”

She paused and said, “Yes?”

The bird said, “You know.”
