As the (Live) Earth flattens, here's a rather adequate Quote Of The Day, that applies to much of the patronizing Stick Figures of Stardom, from one of the last genuine rockers:
"Never trust a Hippie. We said it a long time ago and it's not really changed. And these [Rolling Stone - Ed] are hippies with laptops." — John Lydon (AKA Johnny Rotten) on Rolling Stone magazine.
Laptops and a carbon footprint.

Whatever that means.

La Silicon Valley en est pleine

Alors que Live Earth, le concert pour la Terre, tombe à plat, voici une Citation Du Jour plutôt adéquate, qui s'applique à toutes les donneuses de leçon en pate à modeler du show-biz, en provenance de l'un des derniers rockers authentiques :
"Ne faites jamais confiance à un Hippie. On le dit depuis pas mal de temps, et rien n'a vraiment changé. Et ceux-là [Rolling Stone - Ed] sont des hippies avec des ordinateurs portables." — John Lydon (Alias Johnny Rotten) parlant du magazine Rolling Stone.
Des portables et une empreinte carbone.

Quoi que ça puisse signifier.


Under Reconstruction

Hey, where's all the stuff?

I am rebuilding the site from the ground up.

As of August 04, 2020, only basic blogging is implemented.

Features that were previously available—and a bunch of new ones—are still under (re)construction, and will be deployed gradually as soon as they are ready. That includes the site-wide search engine, the blogroll, membership registration and, well, more...

So all the stuff is coming back?

Yes, thank you for your patience.

Note that some of the legacy content (anything I published before the current redesign) may not display as expected—this will be addressed in the future.
