No molestar (do not disturb)

La autora de este blog se está dedicando con diligencia extrema a la difícil pero inmensamente satisfactoria tarea de ser la mujer más feliz del mundo.

Que Dios nos ampare.

MSN Search Local Beta

They are catching up with A9, Yahoo and Google blah blah blah

What is really interesting is the integration with Virtual Earth (actually they shoud call it virtual US, since it only works for this country)

Steve Lombardi says they have big plans for other countries, though. Wow. Virtual Earth has been developed for around 10 years.

"I think we should close be finding your house",
that´s what Lombardi says to the camera guy at the video in channel 9. (I watched it all. Yeah I have no life. Wait. This kind of stuff is my life. Oh no! I love my work! YEAH AND IT HELPS ME TO FORGET HOW SICK MY FAMILY MAKES ME FEEL SOMETIMES)

So, this is what Microsoft does best. They buy cool companies, and then put their sticky hands in them, usually making them uncool. I hope they dont ruin this one.

Hmmm. Does this satellite maps with ULTRA zoom features mean I can make "virtual" shooting of random people??? I mean, look at them! The people look like cute little targets!


(Sola en redacción. Y me acabo de despachar una bolsa de Doritos con salsita chamoy -alguien la dejó en el comedor- y una pepsi light. De la otra ya no había en la maquinita. TV on. Phones still ringing. But I dont answer >:*) Estoy nerviosa!!!

Heh. We are. Let´s hack the UMD >;*)

Widescreen iBook coming on 2006.

With new provider. But who cares anyway. OMG. 15.4". Damn you Apple!

This one from the huh? department: Microsoft take on BitTorrent.

Microsoft has published a research paper outlining new file-sharing technology similar to that used by BitTorrent. Code-named Avalanche, the software uses a new technique called network coding

404 error report

The requested document is not on this server.
I even tried matching your request
with all the re-mapped pages I know about.
but nothing helped.
I'm really depressed about this.
You see, I'm a really good web server...
but here I am, brain the size of the universe,
trying to serve you a simple web page,
and it doesn't even exist!
Where does that leave me?!
I mean, I don't even know you.
How should I know what you wanted from me?
You honestly think I can *guess*,
what someone I don't even *know*,
wants to find here?
Man, I'm so depressed I could just cry.
And then where would we be, I ask you?
It's not pretty when a web server cries.
And where do you get off telling me what to show anyway?
Just because I'm a web server,
and possibly a manic depressive one at that?
Why does that give you the right to tell me what to do?
I'm so depressed...
I think I'll crawl off into the trash can and decompose.
I mean, I'm gonna be obsolete in what, two weeks anyway?
What kind of a life is that?
Two effing weeks,
and then I'll be replaced by a .01 release,
that thinks it's God's gift to web servers,
just because it doesn't have some tiddly little
security hole with its HTTP POST implementation,
or something.
I'm really sorry to burden you with all this,
I mean, it's not your job to listen to my problems,
and I guess it is my job to go and fetch web pages for you.
But I couldn't get this one.
I'm so sorry.
Believe me!
Maybe I could interest you in another page?
There are a lot out there that are pretty neat, they say,
with lots of pretty naked web servers on them,
although none of them were put on *my* server, of course.
Figures, huh?
Everything here is just mind-numbingly stupid.
That makes me depressed too, since I have to serve them,
all day and all night long.
Two weeks of information overload,
and then *pffftt*, consigned to the trash.
What kind of a life is that?
Now, please let me sulk alone.
I'm so depressed.

*Found it while looking for a clay illustration tutorial.

Bloqueo (the show must go on)

Siempre me pregunté como harían las actrices, especialmente las actrices de comedia, especialmente las que tenían un show diario, salir a decir estupideces un día en el que se estuvieran derrumbando por dentro, en el que la tristeza fuera tanta que no dejara respirar. Ya saben, esos días en los que no se pueden controlar las lágrimas. Gruesas, pesadas, como grilletes atados en los tobillos a una bola de acero /como se llaman esas cosas/ No tengo idea. ¿Cómo harían?

Supongo que en automático. Por inercia. No lo sé.

Hoy no tengo ganas de escribir.

No quiero. Y sin embargo, debo hacerlo. Entonces, me siento un poco como la actriz que debe salir con el disfraz ridículo y los chistes insulsos a hacer reír mientras las rocas del alma caen a pedazos en un mar de lava.

El dolor, rastrero. El dolor, un ave de carroña, devorándose un corazón seco.

No big deal. Just the average melacholic post of fridays at 19:30.

I am that predictable.

¿Por qué no dejo de ver un carrusel girando al compás de esa musiquita suave, empalagosa, que le ponen a las bailarinas de porcelana de las cajitas de musica?

Hoy me he quedado muda.

Craft Girl

Mi diseñador y yo estamos locos. Ahora nos vamos a poner a hacer monitos de plastilina.

Voy a parodiar a la gerente de ventas de HP para latinoamérica (con tono de voz colmbiano): Señor cliente, I don´t give a damn if you don´t like it!

That one goes out for the one complaining that he hasnt get a single call after TWO paid ads on Informática wanting to buy his shitty ERP.

Ahhhh. Feels good.

One free minute

The idea is rather neat.

This remind me of some Bernard Shaw quotes...

"Decency is Indecency’s Conspiracy of Silence"


"No man dares say so much of what he thinks as to appear to himself an extremist."

Hm. More here, in case you´re interested in GBS.

I say. Cool. But why 60 seconds? How about all the time?

Way too much emo, indie and classic lately. Today, I´m going back to trance.

Ahhhh. What a relief.

From the Duh department

Madness and genious. By the Telegraph.

Catching up.

Jeez. Fuck. I loved this speech.

So, this is Jobs talking to students at Stanford. It is the transcript.

"You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. "

Para variar

Hecha bolas con "Rodi".

No es tan fácil deshacerse de mí

Sorry guys, I´m back from GDL. Did I tasted *any* tequila? NO.

Inbox/Desktop/Mind overload.

(viajar en avión después de ver Fight Club? mala idea).


Rather cool.

Another sunday (awaiting one summer rain)

Otro dolor en el pecho, otra pregunta, otra respuesta, otra tempestad, otro nubarrón, otra mentira, otra verdad, otra llamada, otra existencia miserable, otro beso muerto, otro afecto, otro eco de dulzura, otro reconocimiento, otro pesar, otro sol, otra nube, otro cielo, otro sabor en mi boca, otra resignación, otra lucha, otro paso, otro sueño, otra manera de extrañarte, otro suicidio moral, otra ausencia, otro razonamiento, otra locura, otro latido, otro suspiro, otra respiración entrecortada, otro silencio, otra muerte, otra vida, otra laguna,otras 24 horas sin tí, otra vuelta del reloj, otro día, otra fábula, otra hoja en blanco, otro vacío.

Hoy, ninguna lágrima.

No se puede romper lo que ya está roto.

MacOS X secret double life...

694, originally uploaded by Taly@.

Still trying to figure it all out. But check the cute poll at Joy of Tech.

Also, the five stages of Intel Macs. (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance?). Poll results here.

And um... Maybe you can take a little revenge on Jobs.

Bullshit^infinite (o la falacia de pasarse en limpio)

Yo no se que escritor decía que quedarse así, sin hacer nada, meditando sobre tantísimas cosas, no era inútil. Era necesario. Era pasarse en limpio. Ah. Ya me acorde. Era German Dehesa. Y en nadamenos que la revista Quién. Sue me. Estaba en Huásabas, donde el material de lectura es escaso. Con decirles que hasta me leí el cinco minutos de junio *casi completo* -sí, ese librito que publica la grey católico apostólico romana para la gente que no tiene nada que hacer-. Y yo no tenía nada que hacer. Parecía alma en pena sin mi amada conexión a Internet. Así que finalmente me harté y me fui al monte a tomar fotografías y a que el sol me quemara la piel y a tratar de anestesiar por un momento el dolor que no me deja vivir en paz. Pero decía que pasarse en limpio es una falacia. Digo, Dehesa decía que en el artículo que por cierto era una revista atrasada (diciembre, creo, y por Dios, en esa revista solo hablan de quien se caso con quien, quien va a tener un hijo de quien, que se puso quien.... QUIEN you get the idea) que ya tenía tantos años y tantas experiencias acumuladas que preferia quedarse en su sillón a "leerse" a si mismo que salir a hacer cualquier otra cosa, o leer cualquier otra cosa. Meditar sobre el trabalenguas en el que poco a poco se va convirtiendo la vida de uno, pues. Pasarse en limpio. Sí, como no. Yo me la paso haciendo eso y la hoja siempre termina llena de borrones. Otra vez llena de borrones y hecha una bola de papel y a la basura. Bueno, a veces hago un avioncito, pero nunca me salen bien. Por más que quiero hacerlos volar, se van en picada.


Happy friday.

WWDC 2005

Watch the keynote here. (Steve Jobs, of course).

It is really worth it. I guarantee you´re gonna laugh at least twice. Hard.

A molecule is, in fact, a transistor

Awesome. The actual paper is here, in Nature.

Vladimir Kush (and scorpions and um...)

Some sunday art.

Something true: Scorpions put me in panic. I just saw one and was up in a chair all mute. When I could finally articulate a word I said "Gran... Scorpion... There..." pointing at it in panic. His tail was up. I was frozen! Gran went straight there and killed him with her foot, then picked it up to threw it in the garbage, and managed to tease me with it on her way. Man. Scorpions. Brrrrr.

In other -nicer, but frustrating- news, bet you don´t know the open source kamasutra. Link vía Slashdong.org. (for pervy eyes only and probably not work safe) ;*)

Most harmful books? O.ô

Now I must read them all.

Thank you guys for giving me a new reading list.

What now? Are you burning them?

Of all of them, I have only read "The Second Sex", a book them seem to consider like the beginning of the feminist movement. Well all I read in that book was truths, truths and more truths, specially coming from where I come, a small town in the sonora desert. (The Capital, dad took it away from my hands at 15 saying it would be bad for me. I had it almost finished, though, I missed one or two pages, maybe. Heh. I had to read it at the light of a small little lamp next to my bed because lights were not allowed after past 9:30 pm or so... SO I managed >:*) Imagine the nightmare of going to bed at that hour for a nocturne being like me)



The only one I´m more than ambivalent of is Mein Kampf, I mean, of reading it.

But yes, I would probably read it if I had it.

And no, I´m not feminist.

All the pictures and videos here.

(videos in divx)

Who made me happy today?

Well, everybody's reaction is changing you
But their love is only a fraction of what I can give to you
So let's do it, just get on a plane and just do it
Like the birds and the bees and get to it
Just get out of town and forever be free
Forever, I wonder we could stay together
It could change if you want for the better
Just turn down my shirt and lay down next to me*

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

*Lyrics from the new album of the White Stripes. Get behind me Satan.
