Living With Yourself  #Netflix

Ok, time to talk about this show.. I have to assume that by quick watching the trailer I thought I t was a movie. I mean,  it never crossed my mind this kind of story to last for a serie.

I like Paul Rudd a lot, I like the movies where he have participated for a long now, he is.. charming. and in this show it was just like that. But the show is not good just because of Paul, it was good to me because of the story, the characters and the way the go back and forth in the time line.

We (Cristina and I) watched the first season in just one afternoon. Episodes are king of short and I really with they be longer, but maybe is asking too much because as it is pretty well.

The story have some loose ends so the second season is pretty reasonable, I don’t want to mention anything about the story so you can go and watch it, but is pretty good to leave it in just one season.

So, if you have Netflix (I bet you do), go and watch it.

A look into Caldera Open Linux… really nice memories.

One of my favorite distros for the time I started to use Linux.

My very first (usable) bistro was Corel Linux but when I got Caldera Linux in one of those PC-Magazine CDs I really love it. Unfortunately it was a demo CD so after a while I have to format the PC and reinstall to continue using it.

At that time I was neither a fan of KDE or Gnome (which was in its very early stages). KDE was more developed though, and that’s why most distros have it as the default desktop environment.

It was until I’ve got a Mandrake 7.2 (I think it came in Todo Linux Magazine) that I started to use GNOME, I think it was around 2000.

As you can see, KDE at that time had a lot of the features that we enjoy today. Virtual Desktops, a configurable top menu bar, a fully functional file browser, an internet browser but not it was not limited to just the browser, it already came with many other internet features like email and FTP clients.

By this time I though that Linux was years ahead in the Desktop environment, today I can say the same.

Who Invented the iPhone? (It Wasn’t Steve Jobs) – You really need to watch this

Wonderful production, things that maybe you don’t know.

And is interesting so you can understand how hard is to build a product like the iPhone, that given today, other companies are still copying. You don’t believe me?, look at what the iPhone 11 looks like and what the Pixel 4 looks like.

iPhone 10 ditches finger print to unlock phone (Touch ID) and replaces it with Face unlock… then, there is facial unlock in Pixel phones!!.

iPhone 10 presents a notch display.. every new phone comes with a notch display!.

The fact that Apple did it right at making a mobile device like iPhone is the proof of how serious they took the making of the iPhone was. Android was definitively going to be another thing before iPhone was introduced.

And I don’t care if it hurts to you.

Why new Android is called ” Android 10″?

A simple way to get a bit more for Android, using a number is good, make it 10 sounds official! like the Ten Commandments.

They probably claim that Android 10 is the 10th release of Android, but they would be skipping minor version that were actually released as major versions.

Do you remember Android 1.5 (cupcake) -> 1.6 (Donut) or in the 2.X.. (Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread), 4.X (Ice cream sandwich, Jelly Bean).

So, current releases are this:

  1. Android 1.5: Android Cupcake
  2. Android 1.6: Android Donut
  3. Android 2.0: Android Eclair
  4. Android 2.2: Android Froyo
  5. Android 2.3: Android Gingerbread
  6. Android 3.0: Android Honeycomb
  7. Android 4.0: Android Ice Cream Sandwich
  8. Android 4.1 to 4.3.1: Android Jelly Bean
  9. Android 4.4 to 4.4.4: Android KitKat
  10. Android 5.0 to 5.1.1: Android Lollipop
  11. Android 6.0 to 6.0.1: Android Marshmallow
  12. Android 7.0 to 7.1: Android Nougat
  13. Android 8.0 to Android 8.1: Android Oreo
  14. Android 9.0: Android Pie

Android 10 should be 15 instead of 10. ‘Cuz 10 Sounds Official!! read more

Truco de Python, como crear objetos “flojos” (Lazy objects)

Este es un “re-post” en español de este otro articulo que escribí en inglés: Python trick: How to make lazy objects?. Si ya leíste aquel articulo igual te invito a que leas este, compares y compartas.

Esta vez voy a hablar de los “lazy objects”, los he llamado así porque son mas o menos similar a lo que usaba con los “Lazy treeviews” en GTK donde el árbol muestra los expansiones pero no se cargan los nodos hijos hasta que expandes el nodo. Lo que quiero entonces es crear objetos que sirvan para contar, que tengan un tipo de dato, pero que no carguen nada de datos hasta que se necesite. read more

8 errores que todo programador novato comete

1. Escribir código sin planear

Este es el primero, cuando nos cuentan de un proyecto lo primero que hacemos es empezar a divagar, es mas, ni bien nos estan terminando de contar los requerimientos y ya hemos escogido el lenguaje, el framework y a veces hasta el pilón.

Siempre es importante pensar el proyecto, ¿es viable?, hay que investigar y planear, entonces, escribe, valida los resultados y modifica.

2. Planear demasiado las cosas

También este es un error, a veces sobrepasamos demasiado las cosas y terminamos creando un monstruo porque “en el futuro puede que llegue a necesitar esta característica”, es mejor implementar algo simple y que logre el propósito aunque despues tengamos que reescribr parte del código. read more

Raspberry Pi admits to faulty USB-C design on the Pi 4 | Ars Technica

Bueno, no es que pretenda usar un “e-marked” cable pero creo que los estándares están por algo, sobre todo si es para darle “energía” al dispositivo.

Entiendo entonces que funcionará con cables “baratos” únicamente

“I expect this will be fixed in a future board revision,” says co-creator.

Que está pasando?

El video salió mucho antes que “free fire” apareciera, no es relacionado al juego, es la adicción que el niño puede tener sobre plataformas de entretenimiento, llamese el Cel, la tablet, la televisión (netflix, youtube, etc..). Donde al “tap”/”click” puede tener una recompensa, es decir una pequeña descarga de endorfinas para sentirse mejor.

Recuerden… antes salíamos a jugar, íbamos a la casa del amigo a preguntar si podía salir, jugábamos futbol (cascarita), encantados, escondidas, “Stop”, futbeis, burrita al hoyo, etc… hoy los niños si no es la tablet es el celular, y si no, es la televisión, read more
