My girlfriend is looking at boobies.

So I am working on my computer next to my girlfriend. From time to time she tells me "look". And there is this series of celebrities with big boobs on her screen. So I say "that's it, my girlfriend is looking at boobs on the internet". I thought "I really gotta blog about it." and she reply. "No, no, I'm looking at who got plastic surgery". hahahhahaha, ain't it funny? where is the difference come on. when she told me that, I was really convinced I needed to share it with the world. come on readers, how many of you have a girlfriend looking at boobs on the internet, hiding behind fashion's sakes?

Justbudget in Japanese

I kept it secret until today, but as some of you might know already. Justbudget has been translated in Japanese. I put the translation file on Oct 15th. If you see any mistakes, please submit them to me, I'll make sure it get corrected. And today I have another great surprise toward Japanese support in Justbudget. I finally fixed the 3dpie graph so it can display Japanese properly. I tried numerous attempt in the past year and I never could fine the proper combinaison to make everything work. Probably the same bug was present with Chinese, Korean, etc. So the fix should do it for all. Unfortunately I can only test Japanese on my computer. So if you got category written in Japanese or any other Language, it should display fine in the flash chart. Happy [budgeting](

So much professionalism from thoses Zencart programmer

A new password has been sent to your e-mail address.

This is a diff between an english language file from zencart 1.3 to 1.3.5 Big question is, how many zencart user wants to call their customers "mate" or better "gooberbrain" when they enter a wrong password. god damn maybe even funnier, I was looking for a Japanese language pack on [their forum]( The files are available through a [SVN repository]( but the guy is too stupid to realize the files can be fetch using svn. and [propose publicaly to everyone to download every single files by hand.]( Next another very brave guy went and download them all and offer us [a zip of his patient work]( So kind of him.... Did I ever mention when do I think of patient program who does not care going the long way and not do thing properly. well its another subject I guess. Later the first guy propose some windows software to [downthemall]( in five pages of forum thread nobody ever realize this was a SVN repository.
svn co front-store-languages
svn co admin-languages
Conclusion? go ahead, get yourself a shopping cart from one of those expert. They definitely have the patience to get the job done.

Gagner du temps avec RSS

Je sais qu'une partie de mes lecteurs sont deja familier avec la notion de RSS. Mais je suis sur aussi sur qu'un grand nombre de mes lecteurs francophones n'ont toujours pas fait l'experience des RSS. Ce recent saut vers le changement, cette nouvelle methode pour rester a jour avec vos sites internet favoris. L'idee de base est simple, l'Internet contient des milliars de sites et chacun d'entre-vous aime bien lire le contenu de plusieurs d'entre eux. Avec le temps, vous visitez et avez de l'interet pour de plus en plus de sites differents mais vous n'avez pas le temps de les visiter tous, tous les jours, pour voir si jamais du nouveau avait ete publie. Souvent vous visitez un site seulement pour vous rendre compte que rien de nouveau n'a apparu. Vous voulez que l'on vous avertise des changements sur vos sites preferer. D'une facon non obstrusive qui vous permet de gagner du temps. La solution? RSS. Un RSS pourrait etre compare a un Bookmark qui est utilise dans une applications special pour RSS. En plus de conserser une reference de votre site prefere, comme un bookmark. Il vous affiche egalement les dernieres X changements paru sur le site. Ce qui vous permet de savoir sur quel site il y a-t-il du nouveau, de lire plus et de pouvoir conserver sur votre disque les nouvelles qui vous plaisent et y retourner. un exemple serait bien entendu ce site, mon blog. qui bien entendu offre un RSS. J'offre deux RSS. L'un qui comprends toutes [mes ecritures]( et un autre qui comprends seulement [mes ecritures francophones]( Choisissez-vous un lecteur RSS (liste ci-bas) et inscrivez vous a [mon site]( Pour plus de details about RSS en general visiter [ce lien (en anglais seulement)]( et [cet autre lien, aussi en anglais]( Plus bas voici un liste de logiciel que vous pouvez utiliser sur votre ordinateur. La plus part des logiciel coute environ 30$. Et la plupart des service en ligne sont gratuit. Comme j'utilise beaucoup d'ordinateur, les applications sont pour moi hors de question. Personnellement J'utilise [BlogLines](, comme cest le seul que j'ai utiliser je pourrais pas dire que cest le meilleur mais il reponds tres bien a mes besoins. Mais honnetement je devrais probablement changer pour [Google Reader]( #Lecteurs de RSS populaire ##Services en ligne * [Google Reader]( * [NewsGator (Online)]( * [My Yahoo!]( * [Bloglines]( * [Pluck (Web Edition)]( * [Rojo]( * [Newsburst]( ##Navigateur Internet Une autre solution gratuite, serait de simplement utilisez votre Navigateur Internet. Les nouveaux Navigateur Internet d'aujourd'hui ont une fonction RSS qui permet de tenir informer. * [Firefox]( * [Safari]( * [Opera]( * [Microsoft Internet Explorer 7.0]( ##Applications * [NewsGator - FeedDemon 2.0 (Windows)]( * [NewsGator - Inbox for Microsoft Outlook (Windows)]( * [NewsGator - NetNewsWire (OS X)]( * [Pluck (IE or Firefox, PC)]( * [Pulp Fiction (OS X)](xx)

My Squidoo Lens is up and running

So I finally created my Squidoo lens. Actually, [My first squidoo lens]( is about [justbudget](, my little baby (web applicationaly speaking). Squidoo is a free service that allow you to create a web page easily and earn money from it. I'm not totally sure how it works yet. but it seems like they share google advertising profits with the [lensmaster]( So, basically I am trying this out. see how much traffic this is gonna generate. but one thing is sure, It was blazing fast to create my lens. thanks to RSS of course, most of the content is pulled from this blog. I might decide to create more lens later about other subject I care about. I am thinking, about KDE, Japan, Sports and who knows what. Why don't you [create your own lens to]( You can earn cash and get famous. Go ahead.

Le logiciel libre au gouvernement du quebec

Apparemment il y aurait des efforts de la part du Gouvernement du Quebec en regards avec l'OpenSource. C'est dure de dire a qu'elle point ils sont serieux et jusqu'ou il se renderont. Mais deja, cest un debut. Et tres apprecier, du moins en ce qui me concerne. Idealement, nous verrons de plus en plus de projet de ce genre et plus d'aide sera apporter au monde du logiciel libre. Lequel a son tour aidera le monde entier, encore plus que deja. [reference](

How to create zero-based budget

I just found this [interesting article]( about how to create zero-based budget. Zero-based budget basically means that all your expenses should balance out your incomes, that the total of your incomes minus the total of your expenses must equal zero. Doing so requires you to create a category for every single dollar you win. The idea is interresting. and [Justbudget]( does that for you automatically. Justbudget creates a virtual category called Saving. So every dollar you are not spending goes automatically into this category. Just enter up all your income and expenses and justbudget calculate the whole thing automatically. Justbudget also answers to the [3-reasons-most-budgets-dont-work]( because justbudget does not ask you to guess what you are gonna spend but ask you to input your real data. with real data you get real information. So it does reflect reality. It does connect from one month to the next. and it does keep track the surplus money left over after all the categories are filled. I am always trilled when I find such articles and I realize that my software solves those common design flaws already. Thank you for using [Justbudget]( and send me comments so it continue to improve.

Interresting bit of Japanese.

I remember about 2 years ago I was reading an article about bonus and rewards in a company. And how this is the worst management idea ever. As it might push your people in the butt for a bit, in the long term, you might lose core element of your team. Why? because there is no difference between a Bonus and a Punishment. And as much as the winner is happy to go home with his bonus, everyone else feels punished as they did not received it. And this is BAD. Of course in Japan, there are also companies with bonus system. No one escape to the temptation. but where is this interresting bit I found? In the language. shoubatsu (賞罰 / しょうばつ) in Japanese means both rewards and punishment. I found that very interresting that early in the conception of the language they thought of this concept as one single thing. It remembers me also the verb kiku (聞く / きく) means both to hear/listen and to ask. How many people asks questions and actually never listen to the answer? How common is that. Well, if you ask for something you algo gotta listen. In Japanese this is again one single meaning. So in english, instead of saying "May I ask you something?" You could say instead "May I listen something from you?" Which might sound a bit weird but should in fact communicate better more what you are about to do. just thought It might be interresting to share.

Do you HATE your programming language?

As many of you already know, [Google]( recently released their [Code search]( After reading about Code search ideas and found [Expression of which programming language sucks more. For instance, Python sucks. (thx, paolo)]( I thought, actually its not about which language suck the most. but what language are the programmer the less Happy with. So I checked a few of them. I'm sure the huge number next to C is related to the fact tons of C code is open sourced and C is also the oldest. but there is a huge difference there. * [PHP (20)]( * [Python (20)]( * [C++ (50)]( * [Java (50)]( * [C (25900)]( But finding "qt sucks" in kdelibs source is a bit of a shame. at least for me who literaly love Qt and KDE. [Qt (total 11)](, [KDE (total 2)]( I am a bit disapointed to find almost none [MFC Sucks]( It's probably just because there is not much open MFC code. Well, I hope so. But what I found very interesting and why I am actually posting this. Is because ..... (roulement de tambour)..... **No one**, programming in [Ruby]( thinks that [ruby sucks]( For few very simple and straight reasons.... [ruby rocks](, [i love ruby]( and [ruby is fantastic]( so go ahead and learn [Ruby]( and don't forget that people DO [love their job]( and [more](

Gentoo Binary Packages repository

Like I heard many people saying, I really like [gentoo]( very much but sometimes I just one this package real quick. For that, a Binary Packages Repository (BPR) would be quite appreciated. There was the [Chinstrap Project]( that unfortunately being abandoned. I think it is very sad such a project is abandoned. There is also [klik]( which actually is VERY GOOD, but aimed for (cross-distrib) desktop use, not as a core system solution. I think gentoo needs something on its own to his image. There has been [discussion]( about it before, and apparently the problem with binary distribution is that it breaks and needs to be reinstalled. My personal problem with Binary package distribution just as Mandrake or SuSE is package availability. some and few packages that I want are not available. and/or you need to manage a list of download sources, which is a pain in the butt. Then it finally comes down to compiling it from source except that it won't be registered in your system database. which I don't like. I want everything and every-file to be registered, removable and manageable. That is why I like gentoo. every single packages are there. even proprietary stuff like [CrossOver]( The Gentoo portage won't be able to download it, because its paid software. but if you download it, put the file in your distfiles directory. it will check the digest and record this package into your system package database. THAT is GOOOOD. What I am thinking is having emerge being modified to upload packages after the compilation is done. so everyone in the world would be uploading package unless already found, in which case it would have got downloaded. So If found, download, if not, compile and upload. In order to keep system stability, I'm not sure how many duplicates of the packages we should need to store. I would be thinking....[arch]/[CHOST]/[gcc version]/[glibc version]/[package group]/[package name]/[package version]/file that might become crazy, but it might be what it needs. even USE flags might have to be thrown in there. I'm not sure how would be best to organize the use flags. but one way which would not be human browsable but flexible would be to assign a unique bit-flag to every USE flags. just like filesystem permission, where r-x becomes 5 the total would become a huge number but it would not matter I think. so it might become something like that would required a lot of space and bandwidth I would guess, but I think its worth the try. problems can be fix in time. opinion?

Gotta Love Dreamhost

So Dreamhost recently celebrated their 9th anniversary. and for this event they upped our disk space and bandwidth limit BY TEN (10). Actually, it feels like 20x. So I was using 30% of my 20GB of space (got lot of pictures). and suddenly I am now only using 3% for my new 200GB of space ;) I wonder what would happen if everyone would suddenly decide to fill it up ;) ![Dreamhost Host Quota, gotta love 'em](/files/dreamhost_quota.png) The best part is, I got this account for so cheap, I'm even a bit shy to tell you all the details.... So go ahead and create yourself a Dreamhost account by clicking [here]( and save even more money by using this coupon code. **GODREAMHOST20** Simply enter the coupon when you sign up for your account, you will save 20$ dollars on your invoice. its as easy as that. if you need more info about Dreamhost and what not, feel free to ask me. I used them for a bit more than a year now. And I am simply more satisfied with them every single month.

Faites attentions au SPAM

ok, vous l'avez entendu, mais apparement on le repete jamais assez. J'ai recu un beau petit virus dans ma boite courriel ce matin. Heureusement, j'utilise Apple Macintosh donc tout ce que j'ai eu a faire c'est de le mettre a la poubelle sans me soucier des consequence. mais ca fesait quand meme un bout de temps que je n'avais pas recu un spam de ce style. Alors j'ai decider d'en faire un screenshot et de le montrer au monde. ![Microsoft SPAM bundled with Virus Worm](/files/microsoft_spam_small.gif) Si vous portez legerement attention, you remarquerez que Microsoft ne raccourci jamais son nom pour s'appeller MS. Je crois que cest un peu epais de leur part d'avoir inscrit MS Internet Explorer, MS outlook, etc. Microsoft ne support plus les system 95,98 et Me, Donc plus aucune patch de ce genre ne verra le jour. Sans mentionner que sachant qu'aucun logiciel legitime fonctionne sur tout les differents windows, je vois mal une mise a jour de security s'appliquer a toutes leurs system d'exploitations. n'est pas Mr. Microsoft. Et le nom Patch39.exe ne resemble a rien de bon. faites attention a vous et la prochaine fois que vous decider d'acheter un ordinateur, assurez-vous qu'il fonctionne avec quelque chose d'autre que Microsoft XYZ.

Free Paint program for Mac OS X

As most of you might already know, I really like Apple products, especially their shiny new computers with Mac OS X. They keep saying its read out-of-the-box and you can do whatever you want from Day one. no other software necessary. its actually true. but there is one software missing that I can't beleive they did not include. Its a Paint program. There is no paint program shipped with Apple. I suppose its because most Apple user used to be designer and all needed Photoshop. but I don't need photoshop, I don't want to pay for it and I don't want to pirate it either. So here comes, I have taken a screenshot for my desktop (for my next post) onto my clipboard and I need to paste it somewhere. Holding onto my paste I am hunting down Free Paint software for OSX. I actually found quite a few. First google result returns [TuxPaint](, some kind of kiddish paint program. Probably very good for 3-5 years old kid who wants to learn how to use the mouse and draw stuff. but ain't really what I was looking for. Then I remembered the obvious [The Gimp]( Being a Linux user for many years, I know The Gimp as the de-facto imaging program under linux. But The Gimp still requires X11 to run, which is not as slick as I would expect and X11 also prevented me from pasting my image contect onto the gimp. BAD. Good news is that it got much faster than it was last year. anyway, lets move on. [ArtRage]( another totally different alternative. I could not do what I wanted but I discover what many people might like to play with. The paint tool is a pleasure to use. for all the artistic people within you, try this one out. its something to see going. more seriously there is [Seashore]( which is a port of the Gimp apparently. Mac-ized. Pretty sweet. I've done what I needed pretty quickly. It also got much stabler that last time I tried it, about a year ago. definitely a good pick. and The one that is gonna stick into my applications folder. [Pixen]( just like Seashore I've been able to do what I needed. but it just look slicker. ain't a port of something else. worked perfectly. well actually now that I remember correctly, it crashed on the first paste. but I restarted the application and it worked fine. so conclusion both [Pixen]( and [Seashore]( are good pics. [ArtRage]( deserve a try for his artistic behaviour and if you got a kid you might want to install TuxPaint, just and only for him ;) Happy painting ;) Update: apparently [PhotoShop Elements]( is also very good and inexpensive (ie. cheaper than Photoshop ... $150US) but I have not tried it as I was looking for something Free.
