Pretty things

Couple of pretty things Freya has been working on. First of all the transformation of some plain-looking document folders (click the picture to zoom in):

The details are a bit fuzzy to me but apparently first you paint the thing black, then you use some kind of special coating and then you apply the white paint. That special coating makes the paint on top of it crack and give an old-looking aspect. She did the same thing with this woden pen-holder (click the picture to zoom in):

The tiny suitcase-looking box below was bout from a flee market for couple of euros and it was a plain white. Looks much cuter now after she finished with it, doesn’t it ? (click the pictures to zoom in):

Happy birdthday, blog!

This day one year ago, I was writing my first post. One year and 141 posts later it’s still here. It’s a really small blog, it was never really my intention to become “big”, nor to make money out of it. I really don’t care about that. It’s just a place where I write my thoughts.

Well, let’s carry on ;-)

Upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 Beta (Karmic)

I am usually what you might call an “early adopter”, at least for software. And since Ubuntu 9.10 Beta was released 2 days ago, I thought I’d do the update on my home desktop PC.

I would say overall everything went ok, considering this is still a beta. Had some small issues with sounds, blue’ish looking movies and other smaller things but nothing that could not be solved by visiting the great Ubuntu  community forums.

The final version will be released at the end of Oktober.
