Somebody reading my article about managing photographs was suggesting the GNU/Linux image viewer gThumb which works on the GNOME deskop. After playing around with it for an hour, I come to the conclusion that gThumb respects the JPEG files in the file system which is good.
With Office 2007, Microsoft introduced the Ribbon which replaced the menu-based interface. There were many complaints because there was no option to enable the menus, the ribbon concept was not implemented properly, and the keyboard shortcuts were broken in oh so many ways. Therefore, Office professionals were not able to use their learned skills to do their jobs. Almost a disaster for Microsoft and surely a disaster for their customers from an usability point of view.
Zur Abwechslung mal wieder etwas Lustiges. Etwas lang, aber gerade für Techniker ein Leckerbissen, wie ich meine.
Als ich vor ein paar Wochen in Kino war, lief da ein interessantes Video-Clip in Dauerschleife auf einem Werbe-Screen. Das beworbene Produkt heißt WAVEEX (ja, leider auch noch in Großbuchstaben). Im Video wurde auf die Angst angespielt, die ein jeder Handy-Vieltelefonerer kennt: die Strahlung. Besonders die »elektrohypersensiblen« Menschen werden adressiert.
Doch gottseidank gibt es ja WAVEEX, wo man durch simples Aufkleben eines »Chips« die böse Strahlung in eine »verträgliche Strahlung« umwandelt.

Eher per Zufall stolperte ich über eine ORF-Dokumentation über einen gewissen Arminio Rothstein, der mir so gar nichts sagte. Aber es war "Clown Habakuk" im Titel. Das Ansehen brachte mir einen Flash-back in das Fernsehen meiner Kindheit und eine riesige Überraschung.
When you search for something at Google Search and Google tells you that there are 11,346,000 results, this number is completely made up. There is an algorithm which determines those numbers without looking at the complete set of data. And this algorithm is based on some (secret) ingredients. Google has enormous capabilities but determining the number of actual hits of their search data can not be done in real-time.

Complex recurring items can be defined using special sexp diary entries:
* 22:00-23:00 The nerd meeting on every 2nd Thursday of the month
[%%(diary-float t 4 2)]
However, for many standard recurring events (like +1w) and for everything advanced where I'd need sexp expressions, I do prefer a different approach: M-x org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift
Have you considered a Smart Pen as a
medium? I think they have some hand writing-to-text apps. I've been
thinking about hooking up a Livescribe 3 to org-mode output. Check out
Memacs is a nice Python software that collects misc data and generates Org-mode files for me. This way, my agenda contains all of my emails, text messages, Git commits, photographs I took, and so forth.
When you want to open the PDF file, you put the cursor on the link and press C-c C-o (for org-open-at-point()). Emacs opens the files.org_archive in a buffer and jumps right to the heading of this file. The heading consists of an absolute link to the file in your file system. Therefore, when you press C-c C-o once again, your PDF file opens before your eyes.
This method is totally independent of the folder that holds the PDF file. I can move around those files in my file system hierarchy without getting broken links.
Neat, isn't it?
In my case, I got so many files containing ISO datestamps, that my files.org_archive holds almost half a million entries. Opening this Org-mode file with my Emacs settings and jumping to the corresponding heading takes very long. So long that it is not feasible to be used any more.
