Just went through some of my older posts on my blog and found this little gem. Sound familiar, anyone? 😉
It's really unbelievable how you can jump from one distraction to the next. The day before yesterday, we created a G+ page for my musician friend. I didn't get around to do anything with it yet; on Sunday it was already late in the day, yesterday afternoon I had to work (you know, actual work, ...

Re-installed Ubuntu on both my computers. On the laptop, I decided to go for Kubuntu 15.10. I have to say, this version of #KDE looks beautiful.
On the desktop, I decided to stick with Ubuntu Studio 14.04, since it's my productivity box, including photography and design, so I wanted something stable. The version of KDE shipped with Trusty screwed up all the GTK software after I went back to the Ubuntu Studio Xfce interface, so I dumped it and started over with a new home directory. But on the laptop, with a pure Kubuntu installation, I really like it. It's also a lot faster, although that might have something to with the fact that I didn't have time to clutter it up yet 😜

Noticed one oddity; the RAW file ist distorted, while the JPG, autmatically converted by the camera, is corrected and slightly cropped. Of course, I can do that manually, as well, but that is one thing I'm not entirely happy with. Although it might also be the conversion software; I used AfterShot Pro 1.
I ordered a new hard disk, which is on the way and should get here tomorrow. The plan is to totally start over with my Ubuntu Studio installation. Then I will also install the latest version of ASP, hopefully that will fix a few things. I'm also planning on leaving some room for a native Windows 7 installation, so I can also take a look at the Sony software. From what I've seen so far, though, the overall image quality looks pretty good.
Left picture is the unedited RAW export, right one the camera JPG.

I just watched "Trading Places", which I still think is one of the best movies ever. (Especially spending Christmas Eve home alone, puts you in a good mood ;-) ) I must have watched that movie about 50 times, and yet I never fully understood what exactly happened at the end, apart from the fact that Winthorpe and Valentine screwed the Dukes with a fake crop report. I finally got around to googling it ("can somebody explain to me what happened at the end of trading places" actually worked.)

By the way, I also found a flaw; how did the actual crop report to its destination if the guy who was supposed to deliver it was being shipped to Africa or something wearing a gorilla suit?
A definitive answer to one of the most important questions in the history of finance.

I think my little excursion to Facebook is over. I just posted a note there to my friends and I'll give it a day or two. Didn't last long, and my reasons for quitting were totally different this time than back in 2011. Man, if you find all the lows of humanity, just go to Facebook. I think you might be seeing a little more of me here again.

I think I need a Facebook break. Man, that sh*t is depressing. Makes me wonder why I ever went back there. Although I do have to say, at least I made one new friend who is RL friends with good friends of mine and who is a very interesting person, so maybe it's worth it after all.

Introduction
I hate writing about myself, but I'll try anyway.

I'm a photographer by profession, but I'm also a guitar player & singer... still working on getting better every day :)

I'm a bookworm. What kind of books? Well, a while back we had a visitor from the U.S., and he looked at my bookshelf and asked: "Are any of those books Science Fiction or Fantasy?" I asked him, "What do you mean, 'any'??" The same is true for my taste in movies and TV shows.

I like computers, but mostly as an "advanced user" — I ditched Windows in 2005 in favor of Linux, on which I'm doing all the system administration. My skills in Google-Fu are helpful with that :)

I'm also into web designing, although more for fun than anything else. My largest project is www.alangraham.de, but I also designed my two blogs and www.daniel-fernholz.de .

Politically, I'm a die-hard liberal.
