Presumptive alien / malformed foetus in UAB, Catalonia

This morning a lab partner showed me a photo from a friend of him working in Anthropology department in UAB university, Catalonia. The taken picture was about a specimen which was checked for a while by people from that very department in Bellaterra Medicine faculty. A group of people offered that thing to them so they could visually and manually inspect it. However, they were not allowed to analyse it by methods such as DNA extraction.

Fortune and research

I normally enable fortune application in my .basrhc file, so when I log in my remote terminals I can get a welcoming quotation. Even during the busiest times, it can help you smile for a while. That's an example:

Research, n.:
Consider Columbus:
He didn't know where he was going.
When he got there he didn't know where he was.
When he got back he didn't know where he had been.
And he did it all on someone else's money.

Cerca amb paraules clau des de la barra d'ubicació del Firefox

En una recent entrada, en Xavier Caballé explica com definir un motor de cerca personalitzat per a Google.cat des del Chrome. Això em va fer pensar, tot i que la funcionalitat no és ben bé igual, que al Firefox fa temps que existeix quelcom semblant: la possibilitat de fer cerques amb paraules clau des de la mateixa barra d'ubicació.

update-alternatives

Ens podem trobar en diferents distribucions de Linux que hàgim d'emprar una versió alternativa de cert programari de la que puguem tenir definida per defecte.
Això és bastant habitual amb programari originalment privatiu, que posteriorment ha tingut alternatives lliures que s'han popularitzat en les distribucions. És el cas del Java o el Flash.
