Final read before submission


After re-reading my thesis the entire weekend, I only have these revisions to make to submit it. Of course, no major text edits, just typos and consistency checks for the many cross-references. Still it will be a pain in the ass this monday, when I will have to fix all of that. I wonder how many typos I left out, damn it!

Frigging Cold


After returning from Mexico, which was relatively cold as the day started at 2 degrees some days, I had the unpleasant suprise of getting home to almost double digit negative temperatures in frigging London. One of the things that is puzzling me now, since checking the weather before leaving home is imperative in order not to get your nuts frozen, is that the temperature forecasts that my MacBook widget gives me are very (by more than 5 degrees) different than the ones given by my iPod (pictured), the iPod is clearly more pessimistic. Which one should I heed?

Picasa for the Mac!

I knew this would happen! After languishing over the fact that all the photo library programs on the Mac suck and lamenting the absence of Picasa for the Mac, I ended up deciding on using iPhoto for my Pictures for no other reason than it is free and available for the Mac. Nevertheless, I always hated it because of its inflexibility. Now, of course after I invested a lot of time in organizing an iPhoto library, Google decides to release Picasa for the Mac! I guess better late than never. In any case, I am thrilled about this new piece of software.
