There are some really great applications around for editing and managing photographs, and some of the best ones are (unsurprisingly) either pet projects of an individual or the output of a research lab of a company which are offered for free or as shareware. These labors of love cover everything i've ever needed to do with photographs, and do so with as little fuss and mess as possible.
I promised my friends a glorious, full HD Star Trek experience in my birthday party invitation, which means i've had to spend some time trying to finally achieve the Blu-ray experience i had envisioned when i put together my current box (almost two years ago, yes). Practical Blu-ray playback in linux has been a long time coming. The question is, has it arrived?
I now, technically, have a Facebook account, and this is how it came about.
A friend asked me when i was going to get on Facebook, and i explained that i was tired of social networking sites long before Facebook had displaced the (by my count) second generation web-based social network, Myspace (with Friendster then being the first).
The Onion's tongue-in-cheek coverage of the release of the newer, younger, edgier Star Trek movie was fairly succinct: this is Star Trek for the masses, but with plenty of cliches and feel-good revisionings of classic characters to keep the die-hard Trekies happy (if such a thing is possible).
Why should i? Do You? Does He? Even the Germans don't, and they capitalize every Noun: Masculine, Feminine, and Neuter.
Also, there's only so much sticking it to the man that any one person can do: so 'i' it is.
