Oranges

Last Saturday I went with my father and a friend to take some measures of my father’s orange field, a not so simple task to forget about the daily work (yes, work can help you to relax) and also a chance to get some really fresh oranges (just taken from the tree).

Since my father has used zero fertiliser, grass killer or any other chemical the oranges are pure joy! some of them taste like lime, some others are a bit acid (like normal oranges), I easily ate four in the 20 minutes we were there (after we measure the field) and took at least 30 to home, my dad took another bunch to home and to my brother, Marcos (my friend in the picture below) did the same. read more

Cleaning the PS3

My PS3 is basically a Netflix client (the Wii do the same thing) for my wife and kids, but for me this is where I play, my MacBook Pro sucks at games because of the shitty HD3000 video chip which is fine for video play but not that good for gaming, which in some way is good for me since I don’t play that much in the computer and the games that I really care about are not in OS X.

Yesterday the PS3 wasn’t starting, a few seconds after I hit the start button and the green led turns on the system halted with three beeps and the green led turned red and pulsating. According to this it is supposed to mean that the PS3 got overheated and turned itself off. So, what should I do?, nothing more than cleaning. read more

Another thing that iOS needs to improve

I have to create an email for work, I usually respond to email in my computer but since it have no power (I left it like that, I’m doing the monthly maintenance), I tried to do it I my iPad.

The message must contain a PDF file, the good thing is: that file is in Dropbox, so, just get that file and Do the mail. Wrong.

Dropbox in iOS doesn’t let you export the documents, if you want to “share” a file e you send only the link to the file but no the file. In some cases you need to send the file not the link to the file (automatic email processing for example). What did I did? read more

SSD

I’ve recently post about my laptop having almost 4 years, also, if you follow me in twitter/facebook you know my rants about the OS X FS (HFS+) issues related to the IO. Many people have recommended to me to use an SSD disk, I hadn’t basically because of two factors: First, I’m kind of afraid to data loss because the lifespan of the SSD and the price.

Well, I finally put one of this things inside my computer and I’m really happy, let’s see how long this happiness last, I hope at least two years. read more

Enjoy your life, not just your phone

I really like this video, I’ve seen many people just staring at the screens when I go with my wife and kids to the market, sending selfies to instagram, what they are going to eat, of course is their right to do that, but when a friend prefer to be watching at his/her phone screen instead to be watching at me when I’m talking you know things are wrong.

If you are a friend of me and we usually talk face to face, please put your phone/tablet down when I’m talking to you, be sure that I’ll do the same. read more

IFE.. or INE… Inefficient

Today I’ve  tried to renovate I’m federal ID, that ID is used for everything although in most cases it is just an identification but it is required for many means.

Since my current ID has expired I cannot do anything that involves the ID. The solution just renovate, but there’s a problem.. In order to renovate it you have to go to the IFE (INE) the requirements are: an updated and original birth certificate and something that proves where you live.

and that’s where my problem starts, I don’t have any original birth certificates, I just couldn’t find one in my house, I have copies but they just don’t work. I wonder why do I have to give that papers if the only thing I want is to get a new card. They are supposed to have my data already and providing the original current ID should be enough. read more

Huachi

Well, today I went to Huauchinango, Puebla, the main reason was to get my new federal ID since the one that I have has expired. But I couldn’t get the paper done and I’ll have to go in a couple of days again.

The trip is a bit tired, a couple (if not three) hours in bus mostly because of the road, curves in the sierra.

I like that place, seems to be a nice place to live and makes me reconsider Tuxtla as my next hometown, maybe San Cristobal de las Casas is better 😉
