XO (move over MacBook Air!)


With the cheapest new Macbook Air priced at a rediculous 1699 € (same as in dollars!) why not buy this fast-browsing, almost indestructible, innovative and funny lap for a lousy 100 € and make another kid on the other side of the continent happy!
One Laptop Per Child project's XO laptop. This baby packs a lot of punch for a $140 laptop. It's got 433Mhz processor, WiFI, a 1200 x 900px 7.5" display, touchpad, 3 USB ports a neat VGA camera, among other things. It runs a customized version of Linux named Sugar. (Thanks Nilton!)

More real life pictures here!

Sapphic Trees

left: picture taken by almostcin on Jan, 20th 2008, burned tree on Imittou Mt, Athens, Greece.
right: Sappho, study drawing for sculpture, made by me around 1986, Ghent, Belgium.

It's a long story envolving Greece, dreams, "voices" and such, but seeing this (sad but expressive) picture again has evoked a desperate wish to finish that statue....

Out here...

Ill tell you this...
No eternal reward will forgive us now
For wasting the dawn.

Back in those days everything was simpler and more confused
One summer night, going to the pier
I ran into two young girls
The blonde one was called freedom
The dark one, enterprise
We talked and they told me this story
Now listen to this...
Ill tell you about texas radio and the big beat
Soft driven, slow and mad
Like some new language
Reaching your head with the cold, sudden fury of a divine messenger
Let me tell you about heartache and the loss of god
Wandering, wandering in hopeless night
Out here in the perimeter there are no stars

Out here we is stoned
Immaculate.
