A couple of days ago, I went with my friend Basilio to Laguna Grande in San Pedro de la Paz. A 15 minutes drive from downtown Concepcion, is a nice place to take a walk and take some pictures. Enjoy.
The GNU/Linux conference prepared by the IHC Concepcion turn out to be a great success. Great people, great lunch, great conference. The next stop is CONASOL in Talca, Chile.
Finaly I was able to realize an old tought. Italo Foppiano at the DTI of my University at last could arrange the realization of a series of GIMP tutorials in the name of my University's LUG.
I started yesterday giving some introduction to layers and beziers curves. Finaly, we were toying with shadowed text. Today we work a little harder and I make them play with channels, bump mapping and again a much more complex shadowed-3D text.
The good thing is that in class I have all kind of students. From people that had never seen a Linux box before to some people from the web designer's staff of the DTI (Direccion de Tecnologias de Informacion). The tutorials will continue until next Monday at least, but if the people is interested enough it could last a couple of days more.
Choosing a digital camera: Canon A-70, Sony DSC-P72 or Sony DSC-P92, which one? :-(
