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 :)

Just a something I liked, this is part of "Casa Salvador", a restaurant in Cullera, Valencia (Spain).
Heavy editing in GIMP. Rotated, cropped, B&W film effect (Ilford Delta 100), wall defects (clumsily) corrected, contrast enhancement, some burned highlight fixing, added film grain.EXIF:

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: * BUGFIX: Actually use all alternative evasion offsets (Bugfix by Davide
* BUGFIX: Display file sizes correctly when using mawk [#365]
* BUGFIX: Number of columns ignored on Bash 5.0 [#373]
Network Type Indicator is a status bar icon indicator of the type of mobile network in use (i.e. 2G, 2G+, 3G, ...).
This app is meant for devices that don't include this information in the status bar by default (e.g. Xperias).
Initial 5G support.
Please note that complete detection of 5G variants requires Android 11 or
Also, now when running on Android 11 or higher you'll have to grant the “Phone”
permission for network type detection to work (this a new requirement of
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: * Features:
- Preliminary support for MPEG-2 and Layers I and II, and display of
warnings were support is flakey.
- Print the length in seconds in the console plot.
- Fixed detection of sampling rate. Previous versions were incorrect
though only for sampling rates other than 44.1kHz
- Avoid looping over the file in free-form bitstreams and out-of-specs
frequencies. Broken files could produce either error too.
- Fixed CRC detection (it was reported reversed)
- Display warnings for more types of files that will probably confuse
- Warn of files that might be not really mp3s
- MS Windows project Visual C++ project files and configuration script
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: * Added compatibility with Caja
- Correctly escape resolved paths
- GNOME3 support tested
Builds in either GNOME2 or GNOME3 correctly
- Fixed weird compilation error seen on Fedora 17
- Added bootstrap.sh for easy re-generation of configure scripts in
case the default ones are problematic
- RPM: Support both GNOME2 and GNOME3 installations
- Added libtool workaround to reduce the number of libraries
A small update to Relevation, to ease usage on contemporary systems it's now running on Python 3. Hopefully I didn't break it since I'm not used to Python 3. No other big changes, just some internal ones.

Prompted by a couple reports, here's a new bugfix release of VCS. It most importantly fixes an incompatibility with Bash 5.0 which made the script put all the captures in a single row. A couple minor bugs are also fixed, where using mawk would produce some errors and print the wrong file sizes, and the […]
NOTE this post is pinned, it's not the most recent one. Due to real life issues I took a long hiatus starting in September 2019 and extending into early 2022, during which I'm having very little time to spend on any personal project. I'll look into reported bugs and fix them ASAP, but I won't […]
The latest version of VCS is available to download. It's been a good while since the last release, but there aren't a lot of changes this time around, apart from the usual bugfixes there's better handling of errors and unsupported files. The most important bug fixed is obviously the one I already previewed some days […]
Just a quick note for those encountering this bug where the codec information is misaligned and cropped, you can download a pre-release of the next version now. There's a couple more bugfixes and minor changes, and hopefully not much breakage. This issue has been there for months (first pointed out, together with the fix, by […]
For anyone interested, Thomas has contacted me to let me know he wrote a "Video Contact Sheet Ruby" which reuses part of VCS' code and outputs contact sheets in the same style. Being written in Ruby, its code will be less of a mess and, even more interestingly, it can run on Windows with less […]
En este post explico cómo he conseguido reproducir contenidos de Nubeox Premium protegidos con DRM en Linux. El mismo método debería servir para otros servicios problemáticos basados en Flash, como Wuaki o TotalChannel aunque no lo he probado. Como tantas otras veces, el Wiki de Arch Linux ha sido de lo más útil. El problema […]
