Cultural difference

Clearly, there is a marked difference between people who reads/writes blogs and people who keep on zapping in fotolog. That's the main reason I switched to a blog. I prefer to write in a blog, and love to read interesting blogs.

New blog title

My blog has changed its title. Now the title describes better, I think, the purpose and scope of this blog.

By the way, what are the purpose and scope of this blog?

It is to state, from me to the World, some of my opinions on things in the world, things I have seen and have some knowledge on. Most of the time, that stuff is meant to be useful. Sometimes not.

Web publishing means making a public declaration. Everything I say here is meant to be a public declaration on who I am.

I might also use it to advertise on some of the facts happening in my life. For example, when I make my public defense of my thesis, it will be correspondingly announced so everyone who wants to go, can go.

The underlining title, "Thou shalt not leave everyone happy" is a reminder of the fact that to leave everyone happy is absolutely impossible. Now I think it might not be prohibited by the Second Law of Thermodynamics, but it is very, very improbable. Not everyone will be happy about me having a blog like this. I don't mind.

Windows Live Writer

This post has been uploaded using Windows Live Writer. So far I had been using Microsoft Word.

I am perfectly aware that Microsoft doesn't have their consciousness clean. Yet I keep on using Microsoft software. Why? Because it's free. And it does what I want to do.

Diputados (deputies) y la conch…

I urge you to read El Francotirador's last comment again. This is the concern our "honorables" have for our interests. All for the people… but without the people! And there's still people voting for them… Pity us!

Los urjo a que lean el último comentario de El Francotirador. Esta es la preocupación que tienen nuestros "honorables" por nuestros intereses. Y todavía hay gente que vota por ellos… ¡Ay de nosotros!
