What’s the best way to spend a spring week-end?

The answer is pretty simple, but probably not SO obvious:

Mounting your new IKEA Stolmen!
The apartment is starting to get filled with new furniture, but it takes time. :(
2 days of 2 people were not enough to finish, but at least we installed all the poles and part of the shelves. We still have a couple of drawers to mount and then we’ll be able to fill it with clothes.

I took some pictures, but it’s hard to render the idea of the spaces, I will try to attach them and see if it makes any sense.

OS X on Intel? Yes

This is just a quick post…

I just moved to Mac’s (proud owner of a Powerbook 15″ for two years now) and we’re back to Intel! :(

What about “thinking different”?

is xHTML-MP different from WAP?

The first answer is obvious: Yes. They are different markups, so of course they are different.
What about the approach of the manufacturers and browser developers? Are they doing anything differently from how they managed WML? Well, manufacturers might not be happy about this, but unfortunately my answer is “no, it’s not SO different”.
It’s a little disappointing to see that every single browser does whatever he likes and differently from ther other (AGAIN). And this story is not NEW! We have seen it with web browsers, we have seen it with WML browsers and now we see it again with xHTML browsers. Didn’t anybody notice that since there was a domination of web browsers all sites looked good? I’m not saying that i’d be happy to see a single browser dominance (while it would make my life easier), but at least they could try to make pages look the same. Why agree on a thousand tags and then support 300 hundreds? Agree on 310 and make 300 work well and leave out the 10 least important!

I promise next week I’ll post some markup examples and the different layouts. They are not TOTALLY different, but they all present little differences, one doesn’t support the background color, the other uses different colors for links, the other doesn’t like fieldsets… OH!

Computer programming is NOT a hard work

Today my girlfriend and I went to start the big cleanings of the new aparment. If you didn’t know I’m going to move soon and the apartment is now almost ready, which means it is almost ready to welcome all my stuff. So now the tough part is coming: prepare everything.

Today we went there and started cleaning the balcony, yes because the masons used our balcony to stock all their stuff and now it was a real mess. We also had to clean up the terrain and the plants. It took about 6-7 hours and we skipped lunch. We are SO tired!
We’re also happy we did it.

We’ll see what happens, we will require the last mansons working in the apartment to leave it “as they found it”, which means CLEAN!

So, compared to my today’s work, I think computer programming is AS hard! :)

First post

So, this is my first post. I have known blogs for a long time and I always thought I didn’t have much to say. Not because nothing happens in my life, but because I don’t feel like I want to share everything with the internet and also… I wonder who would really mind about it.

On the other side, I found myself reading someone else’s blogs, mostly about technology and things I mind about so I thought I might start to write something myself and see what comes out.

What can do I expect from this? Not much, it’s more an experiment to see how it is. It might die in a week or live for a long time.
What will I write here? Mostly references to other news, thoughts about technology and things that I care about. I might also write something about what happens in my “real life” sometimes, but not so often.

This is it. First post is gone.

Ciao,
Andrea
