"Cuidado con los ahogamientos en verano", podrían ser fatales.
¿Si es en otra época del año, la cosa es diferente?

Supongo que un mejor titular sería "En verano, cuidado con los ahogamientos" para indicar que en verano son más frecuentes pero no que ahogarse en otra época es menos malo.

Ese punto brillante junto a la Luna es Júpiter. Ahí lo dejo.

Protopiper is a computer aided, hand-held fabrication device that allows users to sketch room-sized objects at actual scale. The key idea behind protopiper is that it forms adhesive tape into tubes as its main building material, rather than extruded plastic or photopolymer lines. Since the resulting tubes are hollow they offer excellent strength-to-weight ratio, thus scale well to large structures.constructed by: Robert Kovacs, Harshit Agrawal, U...

Mi idea de un estudio de producción musical, 1981

This is how I imagined a music production equipment should look like in 1981.

Note: it's built around an Apple II complete with floppies and a (wired) stylus. The analog synth is polyphonic!

Done updating Spanish translation of GNU LilyPond manuals and website after several years of inactivity due to my Ph.D. thesis http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=lilypond.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/translation
