Harvesting the shadows of unemployment
It's a fact: these present two weeks will rank among the most unbearable of the year. Having been "laid-off" for lack of work and of a better word (tourism is dormant since the passage of hurricane Ivan; or at least such is the most common excuse for this defeat), I suddenly find myself with a whole lot of time to flirt with my camera. So I get up before dawn and haunt the shores of Little Cayman until the light is turned on by a mighty hand and another day explodes around...

One More Step Towards Firefox
January 25, 2005
I've been working hard to improve compatibility with the fast-rising free browser Firefox (and all other Gecko based browsers, not to mention Mozilla, Netscape and K-Meleon, among others). It's a tedious process, but today's suffering was lessened by the discovery of the "CSS hacks" principle. It allows me to solve discrepancies between browsers locally, at the CSS style level. It's a cheap fix, but it works! If you're interested in alternative browsers and security iss...
Histoire De Rire Un Peu...
January 20, 2005
A couple were having some problems at home and were giving each other the silent treatment. Suddenly, the husband realized that the next day, he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early morning business flight. Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM". He left it where he knew she would find it. The next morning, the husband woke up, only to discover it was 9:00 AM and he had misse...
No Time to Cry
January 18, 2005
Everything will be alright Everything will turn out fine Some nights I still can't sleep And the voices pass with time And I keep No time for tears No time to run and hide No time to be afraid of fear I keep no time to cry [From No Time To Cry - The Sisters of Mercy] It was fun for a while There was no way of knowing Like a dream in the night Who can say where we´re going No care in the world And maybe I´m learning Why the sea on the tide It has no way ...

Why Is The Spark Gone?
January 13, 2005
I was just talking with Sabine, who is pregnant. It was 10 years ago that our paths crossed for the first time in the Bahamas. We were GOs, then, partying all the time and not worrying too much about what was to come. Where has time gone? How could ten years have already lapsed when it seems like just yesterday? Mr. Keating said in Dead Poets Society "Make your lives extraordinary". Am I missing the bus? What has become of me? Extraordinary always seems to fade out and be...
Award
January 9, 2005
The Top Three questions of the month were asked together on the boat today: This bloke jumps in for the dive. He comes up, turns towards the boat and yells: "Which way?" Everybody on board yelled back in one voice: "Down!" The same bloke, or his brother, after the dive, asks: "Do you guys ever have emergencies on the boat?" (Classified in the official log as Boring Regular Question number 12b). So without flinching, I answered: "Yeah, a couple of weeks ago, we ran out ...
Coffee Stains

I spilled my coffee all over myself this morning trying to avoid an iguana on the scooter. ' Bloody things have the right of way, you know. Oh well, I'm down one t-shirt. Life is a bleach and then you dye. ;-)...
