If you enter this site from time to time you have surely noticed I don’t post very often. Even more, post are short, rather uninteresting and sparse.
The reason is that maintaining this blog bilingual takes considerable time and effort, and I’m a really busy person nowadays. Even more, since Spanish is my mother tongue, I can’t use richer expressions in Spanish because I find them hard to translate into English.
For this reason, from now on, this blog, although still being bilingual, will contain many Spanish-only post (some of them already published, by the way, because they were related to domestic matters), with an option for automatic translation (using Google translator, for example).
Only post which I found easy to translate into English (e.g. computer science related post) will be translated by myself.
Other changes abroad: I’m changing my site to make it more useable. I don’t like current site design and think it must be changed.
Sorry for any inconvenience, and thanks for your understanding.
Last weekend I enjoyed attending a Retroparty (yes, we met with our old computer-vintage machines).
You probably know some retro events already. In Spain the most known are RetroMadrid (named MadridSX previously), RetroEuskal or RetroMañía. Even Tenerife Lan Party had a retro section this year.
I’m going not to extend my self in this topic very much. Other people have posted about this event already, and we’re after repeating in the near future. Further reading (in Spanish only, sorry) at Konamito and afx blogs respectively.
I also took some photos (more at Konamito’s post).
Last Friday, I attended a talk by Eduard Punset a Spanish ex-politician and, currently, a notable popularizer of science, who presents a TV program called Redes (networks). He came to Tenerife to talk about “Happiness during time of crisis“.
I recorded a short video during the talk (only in Spanish, sorry):
One of his witty phrases was: “With these spotlights I cannot see you. I feel like the metaphor of a politician: I’m up here, completely enlightened, and on the other hand, I cannot see you” Read More »
