A year is over
I wish you all the best for 2019!
21.12.2018 – 05.01.2019
Thousands of applications, millions of users, a new way to use your computer!
Fast and attractive, Ubuntu is an intuitive and secure operating system, ideal for desktops, servers, netbooks and laptops. Ubuntu is free and is composed of software that are also free.
I decided to “tackle” Linux and I installed a physical “Dual boot” on my desktop computer (1 to 4 SATA 3 Switch Bay EX-3465) from EXSYS. This module can easily be installed in a 3.5″ or 5.25″ front slot because the kit includes an adapter. A documentation (in German) is delivered with the kit. I installed 2 SSD hard disks on this module, so I can switch from one disk to the other when starting the computer. On the first disk my Windows 10 system is set up and on the second disk I installed Ubuntu 18.10. One computer… two operating systems available with a keyboard, a mouse, a scanner and two screens common to these two systems. The installation was easy, whereas the scanner recognition gave me some troubles. Now I am slowly becoming familiar with this new system and I will use it for all Internet-related works.

Meeting with another… Bernard
A few days in the mountains with an expert photographer of high altitude difficult species.
It was necessary to get up early, walk with a headlamp to reach the ridge in order to try to find the animals we planned to immortalize. The success is not always there. Experience, stealth and tenacity will contribute to the
good results of the “expedition”.
We spent a lot of good moments together, talked about our experiences and as usual, the time went by too fast! Thank you Bernard for sharing with us these wonderful days.
Always better to look where you put your feet … these precious flowers are so delicate.
2017 edition of the Salamander Festival, which took place at the Théâtre de Beausobre in Morges. A lot of good time in this place with many natural enthusists!

A little personal experience…
Some time ago I decided to make landscape pictures in the Alps, at 2500 m. The weather report announced variable conditions by the end of the day, just what I needed!
After some hours walking on the mountain, I found the right place to set up my tripod. The sky was becoming more and more dark and a strong wind started to blow, but I kept taking pictures as the sun was still playing with the dark clouds; I didn’t need more to be happy! When the first drops fell, I closed the photographic session and went back to the hut.
Once I retourned home and had a look on my images I got a bad surprise: the pictures were not sharp at all. My tripod is a very good one but not heavy enough for this kind of wind. Therefore, next time I will have to be more careful and try to do a better job. For this there are two solutions: either I use the same tripod stabilized by a bag filled with stones to improve its stability, or I use a bigger tripod, more stable but also heavier.
Why not a nap with sweet dreams?
Unexpected pleasant encounter…
Publication of an article with my pictures in Nat’Images / N. 45

Pleasant activity for rainy days.
Web Gallery Dorado
I use the Web Gallery Dorado on this website. I am satisfied with this Plugin, which works very well.
I had to make some adjustments on this gallery and I called 3 times the Hot Line for assistance. The answers were speedy, clear and precise. The modifications were made without any problem! I thank Suzie for her good advice and congratulate the company on the seriousness of its follow-up.
