Just as the gang of the bay is preparing to launch the world Ipredator (I received an invitation to 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.
Unable to sleep more '.. here are the top 5 in the morning, but my internal 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 'open a copy of USA-Today, a 250ml cup of black coffee, and so on for half an hour to "work out" as they say here.
Too bad the pool only open 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 10 meters from a door .. a bit manic thing, but basically okay.
Usually the first "butt" the smoke around 10 in the morning, but now the time and 'an abstract thing .. my body follows different cycles.
Time to get out and be with a man on 60In black accent I would say Alabama or otherwise of any state in the south east.
Chatting on the climate .. but that fucking cold it is from these 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 poor choice, bad choice.
I greet him, and he does the same. What a strange feeling. A 8000 km 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 at the 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 .. I play a lot with 3 French colleagues, and 'funny to see them in this situation, the 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.. 1,000 times I speak French better than they do not speak English ..). I come back like children who follow the teacher, every waiter, every question I see their eyes looking for me for a bit of help .. no my dear now I have to live too you .. then maybe you will respect more '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 matters a lot. 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, what it 'the sky california I always seem so different from my home? Every time I look up I seem to see an episode of The Simpsons, with the pastel blue sky where the clouds seem figurines stuck. It is not 'only here in Nevada I had the same feeling.
Still a mash of coffee .. here's the café .. Another negative point of France. I arrive in the United States, and expressed a wonder .. and 'good! It said by an Italian caffeinomane you can believe it. In France, 50 kilometers from the border with Italy, drink a decent café 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 the French Riviera have to look for it with the lantern?!?!?).
The stream of consciousness dickensoniana memory must stop here, and 'time for a shower and talking with "home."
Then the real day begins, breakfast with eggs and pancakes (I'm dreaming of 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 , travel
I just wanted to write a few words to inform me about the long absence from the microphones de ¨ ¨ Nissardo, which unfortunately will continue for a few weeks.
In fact, after the attack of chickenpox for the whole family, the sleepless nights of the small house, evenings spent to decide and plan the purchase of our new home, the Dell laptop that has left us to walk 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're still subscribed 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 different 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, such as Ubuntu, for example, while not function on the KDE desktop environment, such as Ubuntu.
The most interesting aspect is that this package will not only deals with changing the desktop and windows to catch the style of the apple, but also several external programs such as Firefox, Thunderbird, and Rhythmbox.
The result is quite good:
An email alerted 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 you do not find even the "good" Italian music .. maybe will not be in the window, but just do a search and ..
