La lumière ne se déplaçant pas uniformément à la même vitesse, les substitieux ne voient la vérité qu'après les autres. Enfin, ça c'est sur Discworld, je ne sais pas ce qu'il se passe ailleurs qu'à l'ombre de Cori Cellesti, n'ayant jamais été voir, de peur de tomber du bord du monde.

Hi,
Any plans of a Deezer app supporting Android Wear devices and smartwatches in general?
It would be great to have, no need to fish out our phone from our pocket/bag to skip a track, just a tap on the wrist and done!

Android Studio Tip of the Day: Conditional Breakpoints

In a nutshell, only do break when a certain condition is met. You can enter any java expression that returns a boolean based on the current scope. 
And do enjoy the fact that the condition textbox supports code completion!

Shortcut: 
  - Right click on a breakpoint and enter a condition.

Central Market, Saint-Hélier, Jersey

Jersey is a small island, center of the bailiwick of Jersey, a few miles off the normand coast. It is well known for being a tax haven, as the numerous banks, accountant agencies and financial services companies domiciled on the Island would deny.
Saint-Hélier, the main city of the island is a mixture of old victorian architecture and modern buildings, giving the impression of a Steampunk-City.
Among the old victorian buildings is the Central Market, a splendid high-domed covered colourful structure organised around an indoor fountain.

Fin d'après-midi, 17h. Ciel laiteux, du coup pas trop de lumière crue. De toutes façon, 49°N fin d'après-midi en février... C'est pas très lumineux par définition. :-D

Never leave your gear at home

This week-end my wife and I went to Caen for the last events of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014. Before going, I checked the official website for any useful information in the spectator guide. Among the practical information was a section related to cameras reading:
"Cameras are permitted on all competition sites of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 in Normandy. However, detachable zoom lenses (over 20cm) and camera tripods will not be allowed onto the competition sites." Ok, the "no photos on the premises with accreditation" that you can read more and more at music festivals is also at the WEG. I guess it's also the case at the Olympics. Fair enough, pros with an accreditation will be there working and trying to earn their living by taking and shipping stunning photos during the event.
So I decided to be a good citizen and leave all my photo gear at home, regardless of it being under the 20cm threshold or not. I could have tried to argue about what the 20cm limit was applied to, focal length or physical size of the lens but I didn't want to spoil it all for my wife with arguing with people at the permises entrance. Plus I didn't have a clue as to where I could find a hypothetical 100-400mm pancake lens... After all to take proper photos of show jumping in a stadium you have either to be on the field with a 200mm lens or just at the border with a 400mm lens, so...But for the driving marathon regular tele-lenses are totally enough since you can get really close to the track and the obstacles. Still, the spectator guide said no "detachable zoom lenses (over 20cm)" so I obeyed and showed up at 7:30am, two hours before the beginning of the driving marathon event, let the security guys look inside our bag for prohibited things and scouted for good location right in front of a good obstacle, standing just behind the zone reserved for the photographers with accreditation. It couldn't have been better if it was not for...people arriving later on with, yes, cameras with the evil prohibited detachable zoom lenses and shoving their way to the front to have a good point of view. Hum...ok...Since we'd decided we were not going to let them pass we enjoyed the marathon all morning with people pushing in our backs.
We then headed for the stadium where the show jumping was going to take place. There again, we arrived over an hour before the event was due to start, passing the security check with bag inspection and finding a good location. There again, once the event had begun, people started showing up with cameras with big tele-zooms (didn't see any above 300mm) and taking photos. Taken from above, from a distance with a undersized lens, I doubt they manage to get good looking sport photos. Souvenirs, yes.
Still, this really pissed me off, pardon my French.

From now on, I'll:
- bring my gear even when prohibited,
- arrive during the crowd-peak to rapidly pass the security checks,
- behave like a dork and push my way to the front row (after all, I'm partly French, a nation widely know for its bad manners).

Introduction
For a living I'm a Software Engineer at Orange Labs. I work in a research lab focusing mainly on interpersonnal communications where we mix psycho-sociology, design and coding and watch people in small rooms with lots of cameras and microphones.

With a bunch of friends we have created a non-profit organisation aiming to get developers from our region meet around tech-talks. I'm the secretary of the GDG Code d'Armor.

I've committed myself to a weekly early bird wednesday morning photo shot, taking pictures of the coast where I live before going to work.

The rest of the time, I'm Robopop™, cyber-father and husband, half flesh and bones, half carbon fiber and steel.
