Some toying with adding text and frames, something am not used to :P
This is, as far as my knowledge goes, a Passiflora caerulea, aka Common passion flower or Blue passion flower.
Oh, by the way, the text is based old wives tale in the town I shot it (and apparently a common belief across Europe at least). It's hard to see from this angle but on most individual passion flowers the numbers match their features (by the way, the number of apostles is ten because neither Judas nor Peter are counted).

I love this scene, too bad the light was dim and the exposure rather awful :|
Minimal edits, I intend to redo it with some more time. Raw conversion in ViewNX. WB, "push" and unsharp mask in GIMP.EXIF:

Full-size highly recommended. The look on its face while sunbathing was awesome, too bad it isn't clearly displayed here though. I put a full-size crop of its face in my scrapbook though :)

A good rest after an exhausting day.
The focus was on the paws although with an ultra-compact camera it doesn't make much of a difference.EXIF:

Just a something I liked, this is part of "Casa Salvador", a restaurant in Cullera, Valencia (Spain).

This one was shot from a moving car so I did my best to salvage an acceptable image since a liked a lot that lone tree in the middle of the field; and it also served as an excuse to tinker a bit with filters, image manipulation and the like.
I liked how the old building got reflected in the new one, though the effect didn't show that much in the shot.

Shot near Valverde de Júcar, Cuenca, with my last film camera.
Not very spectacular for a panorama, I know, just two photos, but more a way of practising than a real work.
This was my first (public) try at stitching some photographs together; and my absolute first portrait (i.e. vertical) stitch. Could be better merged but fits well enough for now; thanks to my temporarily unavailable tablet the masks in the intermediate file are a mess though :D
The originals were matte prints scanned and it shows, although I love the strange colours of these prints. Might rework it once I get my paws on better versions.EXIF:

Some tweaking of a random, dull, field photo shot near Valverde de Júcar, Cuenca (Spain), to get a vintage-y effect.
Video Contact Sheet *NIX creates a contact sheet (preview) from videos by taking still captures distributed over the length of the video. The output image contains useful information on the video such as codecs, file size, screen size, frame rate, and length. It requires MPlayer or FFmpeg and ImageMagick. It is confirmed to work on Linux and FreeBSD, and possibly other POSIX/UNIX systems.
Release Notes: This release
fixes an uncommon bug with unwrapped grep strings and
adapts PKGBUILD to new guidelines.
Share files easily and at high speed between devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network.Quick File Share lets you pick a file to share over HTTP, so the receiving device can receive the file just by using a browser.Capture the QR code or type the shown address in your browser to download the shared file.NOTE: More testing is required, please submit any errors you encounter.Note: This app doesn't use Wi-Fi Direct (aka Wi-Fi P2P)
Release Notes: 2014-01-27: 0.12 - Allow choosing a fixed port in settings 2013-10-06: 0.11 - First public pre-release
Status bar icon/indicator of the type of mobile network in use (e.g. 2G, 2G+, 3G, ...).This app is meant for devices that may not include this information in the status bar by default (e.g. Xperia or Galaxy phones).Please note, due to the way Android works a non-removable notification must be present along the status bar icon.
Release Notes: 2014-01-27: 1.3 - Added setting to open the system's mobile network settings when the notification is tapped onto.
mp3plot creates a plot (textual or graphical) of the bitrate distribution of an MP3 file. It displays which proportion of the audio file uses each of the possible bitrates. The plot can serve, for example, to compare an audio source as encoded by different encoders or settings or to display how the chosen (average) bitrate was achieved by the encoder.
Release Notes: Preliminary support for MPEG-2 and Layers I and II. Detection of sampling rate (defaulted to 44.1kHz) and CRC flag (displayed its value reversed) have been fixed.
A nasty bug with free-form bitrate and corrupted files that led to an infinite loop, eventually exhausting memory, has been fixed. There are more warnings where appropriate. The theoretical length is printed in seconds.
Release Tags: Major feature enhancements, Stable, Major bugfixes
nautilus-follow-symlink is a nautilus extension
that adds a context menu entry to nautilus on
symbolic links pointing to directories, which once
clicked opens the pointed directory (the real
path) in a window. It does so both when right
clicking on the folder icon or on the contents of
an opened symbolic link.
Release Notes: This release supports GNOME 3, can compile against either Caja or Nautilus, and correctly escapes paths.
A minor update of vcs is available to download. In short, if you don't use Arch and you had no problems running it there's no need to update. It fixes an uncommon bug and updates the build script for Arch Linux. Thanks to Eris Belew for reporting these. See the full changelog for more details. […]

¡Por fin! Una solución para poder usar sitios que requieren Silverlight en Linux sin problema (en la mayoría de casos, al menos). Hace tiempo que Moonlight está abandonado, muerto y enterrado. Moonlight era el engendro de Novell y Microsoft que implementaba Silverlight (pero no todo) en Linux, y que nunca fué una solución demasiado buena. […]
I've just published a very minor update to Relevation. It just fixes the previously broken minimal-GUI and adds support to build RPMs directly from the tarball. Relevation 1.2.1 http://p.outlyer.net/relevation/files/relevation-1.2.1.tar.gzorhttp://p.outlyer.net/relevation/files/relevation-1.2.1.zip (zip includes PDF and HTML manpage) pre-packaged http://p.outlyer.net/relevation/files/relevation_1.2.1-pon.1_all.deb Debian users can use my apt repository located at http://packages.outlyer.net. Instructions are provided there.
This tip might be useful for those cases when an editor ignores a photo meta-information (which seems fairly common in phones). $ exiftool -TagsFromFile source.jpg target.jpg or $ exiv2 ex -e e source.jpg # Extraction. Also $ exiftool -exif -b source.jpg > source.exv $ mv source.exv target.exv # Names must match $ exiv2 in -i e target.jpg # […]
Next release (1.2.1) announcement I've just published a new version of Relevation. The biggest change is that it can now combine search terms, useful to reduce the number of results when you've got multiple similar logins alike. Check the updated man page for more details. There's also a couple of small but important bugfixes. See […]
I've published my second android app, a bit more useful than the first one (and also more prone to be a source of problems :P). Quick File Share is meant to ease file sharing between devices by using a Wi-Fi network. Sharing content between Androids sucks: you can use bluetooth for a painfully slow experience […]
