The Right Tempo A blog by Felipe M. G. Ceotto
This post is a reproduction of http://ceottaki.com/node/6 Hello! In April 2005 I was writing this short blog entry I called "The Very First One", to introduce my then newly created blog - which was actually me second attempt at a blog. Although that wasn't my first blog, it was the first created with the intention of being a bit more serious and that ......

About a month and a half ago I had a good friend visiting us for almost a month. Being also a photograph enthusiast, and one with a nervous finger, he took just over 4 thousand photos with his Nikon D5000. Of course we needed to download the files from his camera and free his SD card often, and we did that on my home computer, which is where I usually ......

Those of you who know me a bit better know that I like photography and that I have no fear in calling myself an amateur photographer. Perhaps I should restrain myself from using the word “photographer” associated with me, but I can’t help it, not because of the quality of my photos (sometimes doubtful, but hey, sometimes I manage to get decent ones, ......

That is the question really, isn’t it? It has been more than a couple of days that Apple has released its 3.0 update for the iPhone / iPod touch OS, and I haven’t updated my iPod touch (1st gen) yet. Why? Well, because I’m not sure it is worth the £5.99 I will have to part with (US$ 9.95 if you are in the US). I know that eventually I will end up updating ......

I'm going to be brief here, but I have to say that 2008 has not been a good year for science fiction. No, I'm not talking about bad movies or lack of good books or anything like that, I'm talking about much greater losses: in March we lost Sir Arthur C. Clarke, one of the greatest writers in the genre, and now, in November, we lost Michael Crichton. ......

I have just bought a Dell Vostro 1510 laptop at work for my own use and I thought it would be interesting to write a review about it now that I have used it for a week or so, although my "thing" is not really reviewing equipment. Since I consider myself quite an advanced user, I think I can do this. :) You should know that I'm moving from a Sony Vaio ......

I was reading this article on BBC today, online maps 'wiping out history', and I couldn't believe what I was reading. For me, this is just another example of someone who cannot cope with the fact that the Internet is changing their jobs, just like the librarian I wrote about in this other article. This article now is about the president of the British ......

Once upon a time there was a little girl called Privacy. Privacy had a rough childhood, having suffered a lot while trying to grow up, and being invaded and broken several times. Her mother, Civil Liberty, tried to create a better environment for her whenever it was possible, but Government, a man hungry for power, was always trying tear little Privacy ......

I just can't believe that Nintendo did this mistake. It's just unbelievable that such a great company, in days like today with all these discussions about how games affect our lives and how they should be regulated, especially with children, did not take into consideration the possibility of a child getting a wrong BMI evaluation from its Wii Fit. But ......

I, together with the majority of the 60 million people living in the UK, watch TV on a regular basis, and I am not here to complain about the declining quality of TV over the years or the general quality of TV ads, as you might think due to the title of this article. I actually think that we do have good TV ads in place today, together with some bad ......

Today I read the news that Sir Arthur C. Clarke died yesterday, aged 90. I can't begin to say how sad that makes me, and I decided to write a little about it here, my way of showing my respects to him. From the great Science Fiction authors that had a big influence in my childhood and my teenage years and that helped shape the geek I am, he was the ......

I'm always paying attention to news related to electronic games since it is not only something I like but something I intend to get more and more involved as time passes. After writing an article about Game Violence, today I read this other article on BBC about a survey with parents (Games content 'concern parents') and I had an idea from it. The article, ......

According to this article from The Seattle Times a librarian from The Great Meadows (N.J.) Middle School blocked the students from accessing Wikipedia and put signs over the computers saying "Just Say 'No' to Wikipedia". I'm writing here to express my indignation to this attitude, which is very radical in my opinion and reflects a wrong way of educating ......

I've just bought a new digital camera, a SLR, which is very nice. I used to have a film SLR and I basically bought a similar one, but digital. One of the first questions people make me when they find out that I have a new camera is (after asking how many Megapixels it has) how much optical and digital zoom the camera has. This is a much more difficult ......

Hi there everyone. I'm just writing to let everybody know that I am consolidating my blog with my fotolog and my YouTube into one place alone, where I will also post small things, links and news. This is my Tumblr, which you can access in http://fceotto.tumblr.com. All of these will remain being updated for the moment at least, but the consolidated ......
