This weekend Cristina and I watched the first season of “Stranger Things” a new original from Netflix. I’ll try to avoid any spoiler so this post might be a little short, still I think it deserves a recommendation from my part.
So, where should I start?. The story, again, no spoiler. The story is great, so far the eight chapters (around 1 hour each one) had us trying to figure what is coming in the next chapter. Is definitively not boring and in my opinion is quite well placed, a small town in what I believe is around the 80’s. Being an “80’s” drama, all the town must look like an 80’s town, so cars, TVs, radio and other stuff is pretty much accurate although there are some mistakes.
This post comes from the old blog.
A few weeks ago, I have to write a program in PyGTK that was supposed to be all the time in the background. This application needs to run over Microsoft Windows, and hide in the notification area, wich in Windows is near to the clock.
One of challenges for me in this application is that as it must run in the background there must be a way to raise it, the most easy way to do it is by force the user to click on the small icon in the notification area, but in this case, that was impossible because the computer don’t have any mouse, everything is done with the keyboard.
Interesting phone, the Moto Z is beautiful to me, although with some design issues (in my opinion) like the fact that the speaker is in the top front, the exact same speaker you use to hear your calls, I hope it doesn’t start playing a loud alarm when you are in the middle of a call.
What calls to my attention is how pretty and how well designed they are, I definitively will go for the force version because of the battery and the shatter-proof display, having a device that is strong enough so you can avoid a protective case helps a lot because you are seeing the well design device (not just a beautiful one with something on top that hides it).
So… I’m watching videos of how to repair an iPad (mini) that does not boot, it’s not even recognised by the computer when connected via USB 😔.
