This election seems to me like an example of direct democracy but you need to be informed for it to work!
Mi viene quasi voglia di comprare azioni Telecom. Comprare azioni con la prospettiva di licenziare il consiglio d’amministrazione… ha senso, no?
Sotto gentile richiesta di Mat71 ho scritto un altro tutorial per MacTutorials.it, sito che sarÃ lanciato a breve da “noi di Antani” . Il tutorial riguarda la condivisione di file tra Mac OS X e Windows: come esempi pratici ho usato Panther e Windows Me, ma c’Ã¨ una sezione che illustra le differenze relative ad Windows XP. Spero sia utile. Il target d’ascolto Ã¨ l’utente “non troppo esperto” (qualunque cosa questa locuzione voglia dire).
Il tutorial verrÃ inserito nel sito MacTutorials.it, ma rimarrÃ presente anche su questo sito alla seguente URL: http://cubelogic.org/tutorials/win-mac-file-sharing.html.
Ho scritto un tutorial sull’installazione e l’uso di GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) su Mac OS X. Il tutorial spiega brevemente i principi d’uso del sistema di crypting PGP (GnuPG Ã¨ una implementazione libera (e gratuita)), e copre tutti i passi dell’installazione di GnuPG 1.2.4 / 1.4.0, GPGMail, GPG Preferences, GPG Keychain Access su Jaguar e Panther, illustrando anche un uso minimale del sistema. Il tutorial farÃ parte dell’imminente sito www.mactutorials.it.
Here’s good info about providing support to the tsunami victims: www.oxfam.org.uk
Please donate now to support Oxfam’s work with people affected by the earthquake and floods in Asia.
If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 28% under the Gift Aid scheme. On your behalf, we simply claim back the tax from the Inland Revenue â€“ all you have to do is tick the box below.
For UK supporters: I would like Oxfam to reclaim the tax I have paid on all my donations made since 6th April 2000 and any further donations I may make. I pay and have paid income or capital gains tax (in the UK) equal to the tax that Oxfam will reclaim (currently 28p for each Â£1 I give). The tax reclaimed will be used to help fund the whole of Oxfam’s work.
Also, check out Oxfam America: www.oxfamamerica.org
A friend who lives in Indonesia sent me the link to the following weblog, containing resources, aid and donations information for quake and tsunami victims in Aceh & North Sumatra (Indonesia):
It’s part in English, part in Indonesian. Do whatever you can to help.
There’s a list of official aid collaborations provided by all (or most) countries here.
The death count is now 125,000, and for the Indonesian ambassador in Malaysia, it could reach 400,000 _for the sole_ Indonesia. (link). I am totally blown away by what happened.
I don’t know how I can possibly greet the new year with happiness. It’s just beyond belief.
A little, yet nice reaction to this tragedy: in Italy many towns cancelled the already planned new year’s eve parties because of the catastrophe in south-Asia. I’m just curious…. I wonder if other countries have adopted similar “anti-happiness” initiatives policies.
Today’s Apple home page is a shut-down page, reading “Out hearts reach out to those hurt by the Indian Ocean tsunamis.” and then “Help survivors and their families by making monetary donations to these organizations: American Red Cross, AmeriCares, Direct Relief International, MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨res International, Oxfam, Sarvodaya, Save the Children, UNICEF”.
