Just as the gang of the bay is preparing to launch the world Ipredator (I received the invitation for the beta program `.. the modest sum of € 15 for 3 months), a Dutch company launches a counteroffensive very similar but completely free, ItsHidden . com .

The Jet-lag this time he made his "fucking" duty. After 28 hours awake I went to bed only to wake up destroyed after just 6 hours of sleep.
Can not sleep more '.. here are 5 in the morning, but my inner clock tells me that it's 2 o'clock in the afternoon, apparently not the time to devote to sleep.
Luckily the hotel has a fitness room already 'room, a copy of USA-Today, a cup of 250ml of black coffee, and so on for half an hour of "work out" as they say here.
Too bad that the pool only opens at 10am, but to be honest given the climate I do not think I would have taken advantage.
Time of the first "smoking break" obviously out of the hotel because here you can not '(rightly) to smoke in enclosed rooms. Indeed .. you can not 'smoke at a distance of approximately 10 meters from an input port .. the thing a bit manic, but basically that's okay.
Usually the first "butt" the smoke around 10 in the morning, but now the time and 'something abstract .. my body follows different cycles.
Time to get out and be with a man on 60In black accent I would say Alabama or at least some state in the south east.
Chatting on the climate .. but that fucking cold it is by ste parts in the morning?!?! He says he will go 'better in a few hours, but tonight will be' even more 'cold .. the ocean breath he says .. and I think the suitcase full of shorts and tank tops .. Andrea bad choice, bad choice.
I greet him, and he does the same. What a strange feeling. A 8000km and more 'from home, with a sense of lack' cause I miss my goal 'and my two angels, and yet .. and yet 'enough to get off the plane, get in airport and feel "good."
I keep asking myself 'cause after 9 years in France I can not feel at ease as French acqusito, while I just an hour of States to feel completely "at home"?
Certainly the language plays very much .. 3 are with French colleagues, and 'funny to see them in this situation, fish out of water. The discussion and 'going to end right there at dinner last night .. Now I understand how I felt for so many years (oddio.. I speak French 1000 times better than them do not speak English ..). I come behind as children who follow the teacher, every waiter, every question I see their eyes looking for me for some help .. no my dear now I have to live you too .. then maybe you respect most in 'the efforts that I do every day.
Let's face it, I love France from deep within, and 'a wonderful country with unique cultural and social values in which I relate totally. I can not say the same for the States, of culture and sociality 'here who do not agree with practically nothing.
But language matters, and it matters so much. And every time I find myself in an English speaking country, I realize, everything is 'more' easy-going for me. Never I have to repeat myself, that I must never be repeated.
I just looked out the window, how 'the sky of California always seems so different from that of my house? Every time I look up I seem to see an episode of The Simpsons, with the pastel blue sky in which the clouds seem figurines stuck. It is not 'only here in Nevada I had the same feeling.
Still a mash of coffee .. here is the cafes .. Another negative point of France. I arrive in the United States, and expressed a wonder .. and 'good! And coming from an Italian caffeinomane you can believe it. In France, 50 km from the border with Italy, drink a decent cafes is a company practically impossible!
Last night we had dinner at an Italian restaurant, the first near the hotel. Delicious dinner for $ 64 in four! Polenta and shells with shrimp and asparagus. Every time I come here, and I go out to eat I'm never disappointed. Even the Italian restaurants are always great, from pasta to pizza ('cause to eat a decent pizza in Cote d'Azur I have to look for it with the lantern?!?!?).
The stream of consciousness dickensoniana memory must stop here, and 'time for a shower and talk to "home."
Then the real day begins, breakfast with eggs and pancakes (I'm dreaming of since yesterday) and running in 'new' offices, hoping to find positive surprises.
I miss you sweet heart, I really do.Tags: diary , episode , san francisco , united states , trip
I just wanted to write a few words to inform me of the long absence from the microphones de ¨ ¨ Nissardo, which unfortunately will continue for a few weeks.
In fact, after the attack of chickenpox to the whole family, the sleepless nights of the small house, the evenings spent to decide and plan the purchase of our new home, the Dell laptop that has left on foot and still has not been adjusted by Dell support technician, comes a further delay due to my work.
The crisis is also felt in these parts unfortunately, resulting in reorganization. In short Thursday morning take a plane in the direction of San Francisco, CA. I'll be in the States for a week, and I hope to tornarne with a mood better than the one with which birth.
If you are not yet a subscriber to the podcast, do not despair and grant us some time yet .. you will see that we return (it is a promise, or a threat you do!).No tags at the time
In the past I have already addressed this issue by publishing guides on how to make a desktop based on KDE but VERY VERY similar to Mac-OS X.
Of course required to carry out various operations and take care of the various aspects individually.
Today I propose instead a complete package: Phoenix: Mac4Lin ver.1.0 Released! .
Unfortunately it is only available for the GNOME desktop, like Ubuntu for example, while not function on KDE desktop, such as Ubuntu.
The most interesting aspect is that this package not only deals with changing the desktop and windows to resume the style of the apple, but also various external programs such as Firefox, Thunderbird, and Rhythmbox.
The result is quite good:
An email warned me this morning that Amazon has finally opened its online music store for the French market. Since there is an Italian site, I think all of you can use without problems the French (with some language problem, maybe ...).
The prices are much better than the ones bought from iTunes and the pieces are in mp3 format, so no problem of compatibility with your device preferitti.
As an example, the last (and beautiful) album by Ben Harper JUST 3 €!
Take a ride in the ' corner of bargains .
And do not think that there is also this "good" Italian music .. maybe will not be in the window, but just do a search and ..

What strange coincidences .. just a few days after the interview that made me his friend Carlo , I was contacted by the staff of areanetworking Blog to talk about Italians abroad in the IT industry.
