Download Day Firefox

Un aspecto que no causo expectativas falsas y molestias a lo largo del día fue que no se hablo mucho de las condiciones del record que la fundación Mozilla desea imponer, a mi me hubiera parecido lógico que empezara a las 00:00 del GMT, pero no, escogieron otra hora y eso provoco algunas confusiones y errores o hasta discusiones como paso en el blog de mi buen amigo Andrés B, que quiso revisar Firefox desde muy temprano y sus muchos lectores españoles se le fueron a la yugular.

Ahora, si eres un usuario que utiliza muchas extensiones ya viviste el trauma de pasar a la versión 2.0 y saber que muchas ya no funiconaran o por lo menos no de momento, pero también hay que recordar que algunas pasan a formar parte del navegador base, tienes opciones

La primera, la más cómoda, la que eligen los que siguen usando Internet Explorer 6, quedate así y espera a que las adapten, porten o renueven.

La temeraria, al toro por los cuernos, respalda tus favoritos, tus contraseñas y desinstala la versión anterior y personaliza la 3.0 hasta que estés a gusto (tampoco es necesario que desinstales todo, pero tus extensiones van estar ahí esperando nueva versión)

La “Lo mejor de los dos mundos” , aprovechate de las versiones de portableapps y usa las dos, puedes bajar la 2.0.0.14 en versión portable y copiar todos tus settings, ya sea a un folder de tu disco duro o a una llave USB y mantener tu funcionalidad actual, mientras instalas, corres y pruebas Firefox 3.0 o si no quieres que algo falle, estrena la 3.0 que ya llegó a portableapps y corre esa desde una llave.

A probar Firefox
Un análisis a conciencia en cuanto me desocupe tantito, lo prometo.

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 details

The imminent arrival of Windows Vista’s first Service Pack is being preceded by a ton of information from Microsoft, as they call it

Windows Vista SP1 Guides for IT Professionals

We should pay attention to the SP1 Overview and the changes for the Release Candidate.

Microsoft continuously improves the Windows Vista® Operating System by providing ongoing updates while working with software and hardware vendors to help them to deliver improved compatibility, reliability and performance. These updates are provided to customers directly by our hardware and software partners, as well as from Microsoft in the form of hotfixes distributed on a regular basis using Windows Update. Updates to Windows are also delivered directly to some affected customers and preinstalled by PC manufacturers.

Windows Vista SP1 is an update to Windows Vista that, along with improvements delivered via these other channels, addresses feedback from our customers and partners. By providing these fixes integrated into a single service pack which will be thoroughly tested by Microsoft and by industry partners and customers during the beta cycle, Microsoft provides a single high quality update that minimizes deployment and testing complexity for customers.

In addition to all previously released updates, SP1 will contain changes focused on addressing specific reliability and performance issues, supporting new types of hardware, and adding support for several emerging standards. SP1 also will continue to make it easier for IT administrators to deploy and manage Windows Vista. Service Packs are not intended to be a vehicle for releasing significant new features or functionality; however some existing components do gain slightly enhanced functionality in SP1 to support industry standards and new requirements.

This document describes many of the notable changes in Windows Vista SP1, with the exception of some updates to the Windows Genuine Advantage experience which we are still developing for our customers and will be released in a later build. For additional information about the changes in SP1, please see the forthcoming Knowledge Base (KB) article 936332, which is a compendium of all prior KB articles documenting updates to Windows Vista. Many of these updates are already publicly available and have been released via the Microsoft Download Center or Windows Update. All of these updates are included in Windows Vista SP1. The full list of these updates can be read in Hotfixes and Security Updates included in Windows Vista Service Pack 1.

Organizations do not need to wait for SP1 to deploy Windows Vista; we encourage them to begin their Windows Vista evaluation and deployment now.

Setup Prerequisites
Windows Vista SP1 requires two prerequisite packages to install; a third is required for versions of Windows Vista that are BitLocker™ Drive Encryption capable (Window Vista Enterprise and Windows Vista Ultimate).
• The first of the three prerequisite packages required for the service pack includes updates to the servicing stack—the component that handles installation and removal of software updates, language packs, and optional windows features. This update is necessary to successfully install and uninstall the service pack; it also improves the performance and reliability of the service pack installation.
• The second of the three prerequisite packages includes updates required to reliably install or uninstall the service pack.
• The third of the three prerequisite packages contains an update necessary for proper servicing of Windows BitLocker Drive Encryption capable PCs.

Service Pack 1 Size
In order to make the improvements detailed in this document, a large number of individual files and components have been updated for SP1. Also, the language-neutral design of Windows Vista necessitates that the service pack be able to update any possible combination of the basic languages supported by Windows Vista with a single installer, so language files for the 36 basic languages are included in the standalone installer.

These facts result in a large stand-alone package, which is the delivery vehicle typically used by system administrators. (See Table 1 below for an explanation of the different delivery mechanisms for Windows Vista SP1.) However, most home and small business users will receive SP1 via Windows Update, which utilizes an efficient transfer mechanism to download only the actual bytes changed, resulting in an approximately 65MB download. This is similar in size to many common software and driver updates delivered by other software vendors over the internet and will not be a problem for most customers.

There’s a lot more of this on the 17 pages of this document

Things that look promising

  • Adds support for new UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) industry standard PC firmware for 64-bit systems with functional parity with legacy BIOS firmware, which allows Windows Vista SP1 to install to GPT format disks, boot and resume from hibernate using UEFI firmware.
  • Adds support for Direct3D® 10.1, an update to Direct3D 10 that extends the API to support new hardware features, enabling 3D application and game developers to make more complete and efficient use of the upcoming generations of graphics hardware.
  • Adds support for exFAT, a new file system supporting larger overall capacity and larger files, which will be used in Flash memory storage and consumer devices.
  • Enhances support for high density drives by adding new icons and labels that will identify HD-DVD and Blu-ray Drives as high density drives.
  • Enhances the MPEG-2 decoder to support content protection across a user accessible bus on Media Center systems configured with Digital Cable Tuner hardware. This also effectively enables higher levels of hardware decoder acceleration for commercial DVD playback on some hardware.
  • Improves reliability by preventing data-loss while ejecting NTFS-formatted removable-media.
  • Improves Windows Vista’s built-in file backup solution to include EFS encrypted files in the backup.
  • Improves the speed of adding and extracting files to and from a compressed (zipped) folder.
  • Improves performance over Windows Vista’s current performance across the following scenarios1:

• 25% faster when copying files locally on the same disk on the same machine
• 45% faster when copying files from a remote non-Windows Vista system to a SP1 system
• 50% faster when copying files from a remote SP1 system to a local SP1 system

And a lot more.

Windows Service Pack Blocker Tool Kit

Muchísimos usuarios de Windows Vista claman (o clamaban) por la llegada del Service pack que les ayudara a que su aplicación o pieza de hardware funcionara de una **/-#$*** vez con este sistema operativo, pero no todos los responsables de sistemas o los encargados de IT por alguna razón están de buenas con la inminente actualización de sistemas operativos, a todos nos ha pasado que nuestro periférico , aplicación o juego favorito deja de funcionar del modo adecuado cuando actualizamos a la más nueva versión del sistema operativo y en algunas ocasiones las aplicaciones internas o propietarias de la empresa (que no tienen a quien echarle la culpa cuando dejan de trabajar) que no pueden detenerse son las que ya funciona de milagro y también están los usuarios que de todo se quejan y a los que todos les falla, entonces para que los pobres hombres encargados de sistemas puedan hacer pruebas y estar seguros de que todo va a funcionar antes de liberar los parches tienen esta herramienta de Microsoft para evitar la actualización vía Internet por algún momento.

Overview

A blocking tool is available for organizations that would like to temporarily prevent installation of Service Pack updates through Windows Update. This tool can be used with:

  • Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2 (valid through March, 2008)
  • Windows XP Service Pack 3 (valid for 12 months following general availability)
  • Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (valid for 12 months following general availability)

This toolkit contains three components. All of them function primarily to set or clear a specific registry key that is used to detect and block download of Service Packs from Windows Update. You only need to use the component which best serves your organization’s computer management infrastructure.

  • A Microsoft-signed executable
  • A script
  • An ADM template
  1. The executable creates a registry key on the computer on which it is run that blocks or unblocks (depending on the command-line option used) the delivery of a Service Pack to that computer through Windows Update. The key used is HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate.

    When the ‘/B’ command line option is used, the key value name ‘DoNotAllowSP’ is created and its value set to 1. This value blocks delivery of a Service Pack to the computer through Automatic Update or Windows Update.

    When the ‘/U’ command line option is used, the previously created registry value that temporarily blocked the delivery of a Service Pack to the computer through Automatic Update or Windows Update is removed. If the value does not exist on the computer on which it is run, no action is taken.

  2. The script does the same thing as the executable, but allows you to specify the remote machine name on which to block or unblock delivery of Service Packs.
  3. Note that the executable and script have been tested only as a command-line tool and not in conjunction with other systems management tools or remote execution mechanisms.

  4. The ADM template allows administrators to import group policy settings to block or unblock delivery of Service Packs into their Group Policy environment. Administrators can then use Group Policy to centrally execute the action across systems in their environment.

Please note that this toolkit will not prevent the installation of the service pack from CD/DVD, or from the stand-alone download package. This simply prevents the service pack from being delivered over Windows Update.

Microsoft y sus Service packs

Microsoft lanzara en las próximas semanas tres services pack, dos de ellos muy esperado y otro no tan esperado pero que también podrá aliviar algunos dolores de cabeza, ya están disponibles para los beta Testers uno de salida inminente, por ello ya sabemos más o menos que esperar.

Esos parches son:

  • El esperado Service Pack 3 para Windows XP
  • El aún más esperado Service Pack 1 para Windows Vista
  • El primer Service pack para Office 2007

El primer parche, el SP3 de XP, se ha hecho esperar su bendito tiempo, en parte porque en algún momento se canalizaron una gran parte de los recursos de Microsoft al desarrollo de Vista (y ni así), de lo que ha logrado colar en la web desde hace unos días es que aparentemente mejora el rendimiento de los sistemas con Windows XP, lo que se me hace difícil de medir y aún más de percibir totalmente pues los equipos actuales ya mastican el XP sin muchos problemas pero ciertamente es un agradable valor agregado y seguirá siendo una buena opción permanecer en Windows XP hasta que Vista este a la altura.

El aclamado Sp1 de Windows Vista que mucho esperamos para ver si migrábamos mejora la compatibilidad (básicamente es una colección de los parche que se han ido lanzando en este año que Vista lleva con nosotros) y en ara de mejorar la imagen dela empresa de Redmond modificara el comportamiento de la molesta WGA (especialmente molesta para los usuarios legales que sufren de falsos positivos)

Por último y que ya estará aquí el próximo jueves el Service Pack 1 de Office 2007, otra colección de actualizaciones lanzadas desde la llegada del producto y que lo pone a punto para trabajar con la versión 2008 de Windows Server.

The 2007 Office System SP1 will be critical service pack for a variety of reasons. It will eliminate many deployment barriers to deployment you may have in your environment, it will provide support for Windows Server 2008, and will provide critical fixes to products such as Project and Project Server.

The use of Automatic Update (AU) Deployment has been a concern we have heard from many customers in recent months. Because of this, the 2007 Office System SP1 will not be released to AU immediately. Instead, the Microsoft Office System team will provide guidance as to a date at which we will begin throttling up so that you have time to educate yourself on what is in SP1 and determine the best method for you to deploy it in your environment.

Pues veamos si Microsoft mejora su imagen, lo que veo muy difícil pues el borreguismo es canijo y luego ni ellos se ayudan.

Petit Papa Noel

Esta es otra de las canciones que están como candidatas para el examen oral de Francés, definitivamente yo no voy a escoger ésta, a menos que me dejen hacer la parte de las ardillitas.

C’est la belle nuit de Noel

La neige etend son manteau blanc

Et les yeux leves vers le ciel

A genoux, les petits enfants

Avant de fermer les paupieres

Font une derniere priere

Petit Papa Noel quand tu descendras du ciel

Avec des jouets par milliers

N’oublie pas mon petit soulier

Mais avant de partir, il faudra bien te couvrir

Dehors tu dois avoir si froid

C’est un peu a cause de moi

Il me tarde tant que le jour se leve

Pour voir si tu m’as apporte

Tous les beaux joujoux que je vois en reves

Et que je t’ai commandes

Petit Papa Noel, quand tu descendras du ciel

Avec des jouets par milliers

N’oublie pas mon petit soulier

Le marchand de sable est passe

Les enfants vont faire dodo

Et tu vas pouvoir commencer

Avec ta hotte sur le dos

Au son des cloches des eglises

Ta distribution de surprises

Petit Papa Noel, quand tu descendras du ciel

Avec des jouets par milliers

N’oublie pas mon petit soulier

Si tu dois t’arreter

Sur les toits du monde entier

Tout ca avant demain matin

Mets-toi vite vite en chemin

Et quand tu seras sur ton beau nuage

Viens d’abord sur notre maison

Je n’ai pas ete tous les jours tres sage

Mais j’en demande pardon

Petit Papa Noel, quand tu descendras du ciel

Avec des jouets par milliers

N’oublie pas mon petit soulier

Petit Papa Noel

Les Champs-Elysées

El sábado que regrese de Tijuana ya no me levante a tiempo de ir a mi clase de francés, al parecer se decidió que el examen oral iba a ser cantado (ya ven porque es importante votar, uno no le puede confiar este tipo de decisiones a los demás) y unas de las tres opciones es la siguiente canción

Por Joe Dassin

Je m’baladais sur l’avenue le cœur ouvert à l’inconnu
J’avais envie de dire bonjour à n’importe qui
N’importe qui et ce fut toi, je t’ai dit n’importe quoi
Il suffisait de te parler, pour t’apprivoiser

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Tu m’as dit “J’ai rendez-vous dans un sous-sol avec des fous
Qui vivent la guitare à la main, du soir au matin”
Alors je t’ai accompagnée, on a chanté, on a dansé
Et l’on n’a même pas pensé à s’embrasser

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Hier soir deux inconnus et ce matin sur l’avenue
Deux amoureux tout étourdis par la longue nuit
Et de l’Étoile à la Concorde, un orchestre à mille cordes
Tous les oiseaux du point du jour chantent l’amour

Aux Champs-Elysées, aux Champs-Elysées
Au soleil, sous la pluie, à midi ou à minuit
Il y a tout ce que vous voulez aux Champs-Elysées

Hay Amores – Shakira

En un mes que se ha caracterizado por ser muy musical vamos a cerrar con Shakira

Hay mi bien,
¿qué no haría yo por ti?
por tenerte un segundo alejados del mundo
y cerquita de mi

Hay mi bien,
como el río magdalena
que se funde en la arena del mar
quiero fundirme yo en ti.

Hay amores que se vuelven resistentes a los daños,
como el vino que mejora con los años,
así crece lo que siento yo por ti.

Hay amores que se esperan al invierno y florecen,
y en las noches del otoño reverdecen,
tal como el amor que siento yo por ti.

Hay mi piel, no te olvides del mar
que en las noches me ha visto llorar
tantos recuerdos de ti.

Hay mi bien, no te olvides del día
que separo tu vida de la pobre vida
que me toco vivir.

Hay amores que se vuelven resistentes a los daños,
como el vino que mejora con los años,
así crece lo que siento yo por ti.

Hay amores que parece que se acaban y florecen,
y en las noches del otoño reverdecen,
tal como el amor que siento yo por ti.

You were my everything

[Talking] This goes out to someone that was
Once the most important person in my life
I didn’t realize it at the time
I can’t forgive myself for the way I treated you so
I don’t really expect you to either
It’s just… I don’t even know
Just listen…

You’re the one that I want, the one that I need
The one that I gotta have just to succeed
When I first saw you, I knew it was real
I’m sorry about the pain I made you feel

That wasn’t me; let me show you the way
I looked for the sun, but it’s raining today
I remember when I first looked into your eyes
It was like God was there, heaven in the skies

I wore a disguise ‘cause I didn’t want to get hurt
But I didn’t know I made everything worse
You told me we were crazy in love
But you didn’t care when push came to shove

If you loved me as much as you said you did
Then you wouldn’t have hurt me like I ain’t shit
Now you pushed me away like you never even knew me
I loved you with my heart, really and truly

I guess you forgot about the times that we shared
When I would run my fingers through your hair
Late nights, just holding you in my arms
I don’t know how I could do you so wrong

I really wanna show you I really need to hold you
I really wanna know you like no one could else know you
You’re number one, always in my heart
And now I can’t believe that our love is torn apart

Chorus
I need you and
I miss you and
I want you and
I love you ‘cause
I wanna hold you,
I wanna kiss you
You were my everything
And I really miss you [2x]

I knew you gonna sit and play this with your new man
And then sit and laugh as you’re holding his hand
The thought of that just shatters my heart
It breaks in my soul and it tears me apart

At times we was off I was scared to show you
Now I wanna hold you until I can’t hold you
Without you, everything seems strange
Your name is forever planted in my brain

Damn it, I’m insane,
Take away the pain
Take away the hurt
Baby, we can make it work

What about when you
Looked into my eyes
Told me you loved me
As you would hugged me

I guess everything you said was a lie
I think about it, it brings tears to my eyes
Now I’m not even a thought in your mind
I can see clearly, my love is not blind

Chorus
I need you and
I miss you and
I want you and
I love you ‘cause
I wanna hold you,
I wanna kiss you
You were my everything
And I really miss you [2x]

[Talking] I just wish everything could have turned out differently
I had a special feeling about you
I thought maybe you did too
You would understand, but…
No matter what, you’ll always be in my heart
You’ll always be my baby

Our first day, it seemed so magical
I remember all the time that I had with you
Remember when you first came to my house?
You looked like an angel wearing that blouse

We hit it off, I knew it was real
But now I can’t take all the pain that I feel
Reach in your heart, I know I’m still there
I don’t wanna hear that you no longer care

Remember the times? Remember when we kissed?
I didn’t think you would ever do me like this
I didn’t think you’d wanna see me depressed
I thought you’d be there for me, this I confess

You said you were my best friend, was that a lie?
Now I’m nothing to you, you’re with another guy
I tried, I tried, I tried, and I’m trying
Now on the inside it feels like I’m dying

Chorus
I need you and
I miss you and
I want you and
I love you ‘cause
I wanna hold you,
I wanna kiss you
You were my everything
And I really miss you [2x]

[Talking] And I do miss you
I just thought we were meant to be
I guess now, we’ll never know
The only thing I want is for you to be happy
Whether it be with me, or without me
I just want you to be happy

月牙灣 / yuè yá wān / Crescent Moon Bay

Otra canción de F.I.R.

敦煌天空的砂礫 帶著我們的記憶
我從半路看回去 這情關漫漫好蜿嶇

※夢想穿過了西域 包含了多少的禪意
愛情像一本遊記 我會找尋他的謎語

#看月牙灣下的淚光 在絲路之上被遺忘

*是誰的心阿 孤單的留下 他還好嗎 我多想愛他
那永恆的淚凝固 那一句話 也許可能蒸發
是誰的愛阿 並為誰降下 輕聲呼喚 就讓我融化
用一滴雨水演化 成我翅膀 向著我愛的人 追吧

El video como Bonus, algo me dice que alguien va a tener un fragmento de esta canción que tiene un mensaje ecológico como tono de celular

Se como duele

El día de ayer me la pase escuchando una canción bien añeja de Karina.

Las letra es de esas bien ochenteras completamente azotadas

Siento un vacío entre tú y yo
entiende nunca fuiste mi amor
cuantas mentiras tengo que inventar
para alejarte de una vez de mi.
Siento una pena que quisiera gritar
a veces se ama a quien no se debe amar
quise quererte engañándome
te fui quemando sin pensar.

No, no me pidas que, que lo intente
otra vez, de una vez, otra vez
no, no me pidas que, vuelva a fingirlo
otra vez, de una vez, otra vez.

Sé como duele comprender
como duele sonreír
el amor es algo así
yo lo sé, yo lo viví, te duele hasta morir
y nada puedes hacer.

Siento que caes en la soledad
quisiera darte felicidad
como besarte si no hay amor
aquí dentro de mi corazón.

No, no me pidas que, que lo intente
otra vez, de una vez, otra vez
no, no me pidas que vuelva a fingirlo
otra vez, de una vez, otra vez

OPEN HANDSET ALLIANCE RELEASES ANDROID SDK

OPEN HANDSET ALLIANCE RELEASES ANDROID SDK

The Open Handset Alliance, a group of mobile and technology leaders, today announced the availability of the Android Software Development Kit (SDK). Available now as an early look, the Android SDK will enable developers to create innovative and compelling applications for the platform. The early look will also provide developers with the opportunity to participate in the evolution of the Android platform by providing feedback throughout the development process.

The Android platform was built from the ground up to enable developers to create new and innovative mobile applications that take full advantage of all the capabilities of a handset connected to the internet. It is a complete mobile platform built on the Linux 2.6 kernel that exposes a robust operating system, a comprehensive set of libraries, a rich multimedia user interface, and a complete set of phone applications. Android’s innovative application model makes it easy for developers to extend, replace, and reuse existing software components to create rich and integrated mobile services for consumers. The Android platform also includes the Dalvik virtual machine to maximize application performance, portability, and security. The entire platform will be made available under the very liberal, developer-friendly Apache v2 open-source license in 2008.

Android Software Development Kit

The SDK contains a rich set of tools for developers to build applications for the Android platform. Included are advanced development and debugging tools, a rich set of libraries, a true device emulator, in-depth documentation, sample projects, tutorials, FAQs, and more. For developers looking for a seamless development experience, an Eclipse plugin is included to integrate these tools with the Eclipse integrated development environment. The site hosting the kit will also feature a blog and discussion groups, to make it easier for everyone contributing to the platform to interact and share knowledge.

Requirements

To begin building applications for Android, developers will need to download the Android SDK to an x86-based computer running Windows XP or Vista; Mac OS 10.4.8 or later; or Linux Ubuntu Dapper Drake or later (other modern distributions of Linux will also likely work but are not directly supported).

Developers will also need Eclipse 3.2 or later, with Java Development Tools and the Android SDK’s plugin, or Java and Javac 1.5 or 1.6; Apache Ant; an integrated development environment; and Python 2.2 or later.

Downloading the SDK

For more information or to download the SDK, please visit http://www.openhandsetalliance.com/developers.html.
