Wreck-It Ralph

So much licensing Disney must’ve had to do. WOW. If some of the villains are here now, I predict that of the more popular heroes will show up later, or even at the end of the movie.

So far this is like “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?” for video gamers.

Rains

The weather was hellish a week back and a lot of people is uploading videos to YouTube to prove it. I’m just putting up a few in this post:

This one shows one of the crown jewels of the current local government, the Via Rapida, turning into a canal:

This other one is a collage of pictures:

Oh yeah, Don’t forget the sports fields on the Tijuana River canal!

I only see lots of dirty brownish water running in there.

Pues anda cabrón el clima últimamente y mucha gente anda subiendo videos a YouTube para demostrarlo. Aquí solo les pongo algunos de los vídeos mas llamativos:

Este muestra una de las joyas del gobierno actual, la recién renovada Vía Rápida, siendo devorada por las aguas:

Este otro es un collage de fotos:

Ah si, no se les olviden las famosas canchas!

Yo nomas veo harta agua mugrienta corriendo por ese cauce.

Recorded this outside of Virus Club over in Ave. Revolucion. The only thing I dislike is how crappy it looks… the YouTube people need to work a bit harder on their transcoding tools. The original AVI file was converted into an h.264 MP4 file that looks almost the same as the original, but once it got uploaded it just doesn’t look right.

If this keeps up I’ll begin uploading videos somewhere else; Vimeo looks good.

Lo grabe afuera del Virus Club, ahí en la Revolución. La gente de YouTube ocupan mejorar sus programas para trascodificar… el AVI original de 200MB lo pase a un MP4 h.264 que no se ve nada mal, pero ya que esta en YouTube si se mira de la chingada.

Si siguen así mejor subo mis vídeos a algún otro lado; Vimeo se mira bastante bien… así como los vídeos.

Boing Boing tv: Cafe Tacvba — Interview and Performance (Music)

JOJOJO, ahora si la van a armar mas en grande todavía con los BoingBoingueros de los intertubos.

Café Tacvba (MySpace, Wikipedia) are one of the most, if not the most, imaginative and recklessly experimental indie rock bands ever to come out of Latin America. They formed in near Mexico City in the late ’80s, and have been happily mutating ever since. I’m always kind of surprised when non-Spanish-speaking American friends don’t know who they are — they’re sort of like the Radiohead of Mexico.

A webo que lo son. Nada como un poco del Café Tacuba para pasar un buen rato.

ZOMFG, they now own the BoingBoing internets

Yes, yes they are. Nothing like a bit of the Cafe Tacuba to have a good time.

Ubuntu 8.04

*sigh*… with this it’s now been three times ubuntu simply refuses to work on my computer. First with 7.04 the installed OS never worked properly. Later, with 7.10, I had video issues (like seen above) and now with 8.04 little changed.

I looked around on how to solve the issue and almost everyone says the same thing: “get yourself another video card”. Obviously if your throw money at the problem there is a high probability the problem will get solved. Same thing happened with my wlan card. This time around I at least got connected to the internet using the Connection Sharing feature on noesh’s puter (running WinXP). Thing is I don’t want two computers to be on when only one is going to get used.

Hopefully with another distro everything will work the way it’s supposed to. If not, I’ll try setting up a virtual machine at the very least, once I’ve got more RAM on the computer (there’s that thing again about throwing money at the problem). If it won’t work that’s too bad. I’ll keep using WinXP, which at least is now configured the way I like it.

*sigh*… ya con esta son tres veces las que ubuntu nomas no quiere jalar con mi computadora. Primero con 7.04 la red inalambrica nunca logre que funcionara. Después con 7.10 tuve problemas con la tarjeta de vídeo (como se mira en la imagen de arriba), y ahora con 8.04 regresamos a las mismas.

Busque como resolverlo y todos dicen casi lo mismo: “comprate otra tarjeta de vídeo”. Obvio, si uno le avienta dinero al problema hay altas probabilidades de que este sea resuelto. Lo mismo paso con la tarjeta de red inalambrica. Esta ocasión por lo menos logre que se conectara al internet usando la habilidad de compartir conexión de la desktop de noesh (corriendo WinXP), pero no se trata de que dos computadoras esten encendidas para que nada mas se utilice una.

A ver si con alguna otra distribución todo funciona como debe. Y si no, de perdis una maquina virtual… después de que le ponga mas RAM a la computadora (otra vez eso de echarle dinero al problema). Si de plano no se deja, ps ya que. Me quedare usando WinXP, que al fin y al cabo ya lo tengo configurado a mi gusto.
