    film photography

    Oh, yes... If it happens you are into film photography, please post links to your galleries in comments
    Currently I have nothing to share. Waiting for cameras and collecting different films.

    just two of my lightning pics

    Thanks for the link, I won't be downloading that plugin just to see your pic. It is useless to me since I can't shoot in raw.

    Let it be.

    Those Pics are post processed, right?
    I would like to see their original versions totally untouched by the human hand.

    mplayer vs vlc

    I'm just gonna play the devil's advocate here and put in a word for VLC...I personally think media on Linux in general has a ways to go (thanks a lot, DVD Forum and patent freaks) so it's understandable that there be some...kinks here and there from distro to distro.

    To be frank, I have zero experience with practical Linux (I use Fedora and you use Gentoo - the difference is clear) and so I can't say if either or both of us speak of universal problems.

    One, I remember getting "Elephants Dream" in high-quality Theora a while back. No lag at all. The same for Big Buck Bunny, methinks, but I can't say for sure.

    Two, DVDs play fine for me regardless of whereever and whenever...though it was a bit of a struggly before I knew of libdvdcss.

    On the other hand, I found an interesting issue with MPlayer which did not manifest itself with VLC. When I did a window-switch operation of any sort (alt-tab, or even minimizing the related MPlayer window) there would be a jump in my audio output. Hardly a show-stopper, but it was very annoying.

    Then again, for the first two months of my time on Fedora, VLC was flagged to be highly suspicious be SELinux for reasons I didn't understand, while MPlayer never raised such issues.

    And of course, we have Totem. Slow for me, a strange GUI (or so I feel), and almost zero support for the media files I want out of the box. The last was easily solved, the other two - eh. My question is how the GNOME team (or whoever is in charge of that) could include such software by default - at the least they could include a barebones MPlayer or something which wouldn't raise copyright death flags.

    Just my two cents.

    qemu-system-arm experience

    Just built 2.6.36 with same config as my 2.6.34.7 and it refused to boot. Same situation as in slackware 13.1 / current kernels. This is weird now.

    I don't know much (if anything) about cross-compiling, and I haven't got round to trying Gentoo yet.
    Isn't a home server the same whatever architecture it's based on? If you've any use for one, the B3 would be ideal.

    qemu-system-arm experience

    Oh, let me know. By the way I'm having some troubles with cross-compiling... So far I could not install cross-toolkit @ my gentoo box so atm I've built a kernel in other arm virtual machine It took almost 2 hours for 2.6.34.7 with successful results, I used the produced kernel to boot into recent gentoo-stage3. Going to continue this investigation later. B3 is very interesting thing, looks to be fully prepared for production environment, I love that box. Though I don't have a requirement for a home server on arm yet, otherwise I would had likely get one.

    Mmm, that Excito B3 looks interesting.
    Had a bit(?) of a disaster with my SheevaPlug. Will write a blog entry about it sooner or later.

    upgrading home network router

    It wasn't that hard to setup and make a minimal config of grsecurity: just follow the grsecurity wikibook
    Now I can finally finish hardening security and start playing with real apps

    Charles Chaplin's "The Great Dictator"

    Now I remember, it's Timo Tolkki, "Hymn To Life". And well the track number was 12.
