Yet he never once had dared and taken the first step on that formidable journey. His eternal thirst for knowledge, but also his quest toward absolute freedom eventually succeeded in convincing him. This is how, after many a year roaming through the Arch realm, dear Phil Wayne made up his mind and took the plunge down the rabbit hole, straight into the abyss of Gentoo Land.

Best Books To Learn A New Language

When starting to learn a new language, it is important to create the habit to study the target language on a daily basis for the amount of time which works best for you. In order to do so, one should progressively set goals. This means you should not do 5 hours one day, and zero the next. It is better to do 1 hour everyday, or you will quickly be exhausted. […] This is why I would advise you to start slow. Learning a language is a marathon, remember ? Continue reading Best Books To Learn A New Language

Books Or Movies : What Do I Prefer ?

Being a huge fan of both movies and books, I thought I would try and determine two things today : The first regards my personal preference; as for the second, it should be much more objective, since I wish to draw out the advantages and disadvantages of both formats. To compare these 2 sensibly different medium, I have decided to answer several questions (in quite a biased way, if I may be honest with you, my dear fellows).

My Experience As An Au-Pair In Italy

Should You Run Arch-Based Distributions Or Vanilla Arch

My Dearest Mad-Readers, I cannot help but sighing when I think of GNU/Linux distributions. It is such a weary topic and… Well, only if you make it so, actually. There is not much of a point criticizing GNU/Linux distributions, especially when you believe they all roughly are the same. Indeed, all of us are running Linux, in the end… There is a point in discussing … Continue reading Should You Run Arch-Based Distributions Or Vanilla Arch

Vertige

Aujourd’hui, je vous propose un poème dont l’idée m’est venue lors d’une randonnée (encore une). La marche est, au moins pour moi, une activité fort inspirante. Évoluer au milieu des arbres, respirer le grand air montagneux… Il n’y a rien de tel pour réfléchir et, parfois, pour panser les diverses blessures que la vie peut nous affliger au quotidien. Sur ce, je vous souhaite une excellente lecture… Continue reading Vertige
