Internet

Random Personal Picture is a weird and almost fascinating glimpse on the life of other people. Kinda like looking through photo albums of people you don't know.

That one not allways finds people pictures, can be seen in this result, showing us marvellous weather pictures from various aircrafts.

Solaris x86

Sun

As the installation of Solaris 8 on x86 didn't succeeded on my old P-133, I almost gave up. But then I tried to install it on VMWare, even though I hate so much (way too slow). It installed without any problem, though I only have 16 colors in graphical mode :(

Time to install some GNU utilities on it, and maybe a XFree server. Of course it was only after the installation that I found out about this site, which explains in detail how to install Solaris on VMWare.

In the 1940s, a lot of superheroes gained their powers through some mystical artifact from the Far East; in the 1960s, they got them through radioactivity; and, since the 1990s, they get them through genetic engineering. It's interesting to see the connections between comic superheroes and physics. For a sampling, see the following sites :
