Back to Windows?

Well, my lovely old NIC is broken (a RTL 8139 Chip) and I don’t know why 😦 so I went back to my old Nvidia NIC (Nforce3) and then…everything was slow again 😦

I’m going to buy a new NIC tomorrow 🙂 and hopefully it will work ok…but hey, lets wait until I have the NIC

Changing Distro!

Well, it seems that (K)Ubuntu has some bug in the network because is really slow accessing webs, Firefox and Konqueror waas sooooo slow that I was really pissed off every single day I used. But then I had an idea: Debian! yes!! I'm installing Debian right now, upgrading the system and then I'll install KDE or Ubuntu (it depends on the version). Right now it's almost finished so later I'll get my hand on this. I have to go to Eva's house…c-ya 😛

PS: This post was made with Lynx, works just fine 🙂

Yale steals Inca’s Property!

This is the English version of my other post

I was reading the news in U.S.A Today a couple of days ago and I found an article in which they talk about how the University of Yale has been evading, for almost 90 years, the peruvian right of having the pieces back, that Hiram Bingham found in the Lost City in 1911.

So, Yales says they don’t have any gold pieces.. I wonder myself how it is possible that in Machu Picchu they have not found gold (you could find gold even underneath stones…).

The Peruvian Government is studying the possibility of demanding them so they can return to Cuzco before the centenary of the finding.

The Peruvian Government alleges that Yale has more than 5000 pieces, among gold one and silver and infinity of devices used at the end of 15th century.

According to a letter of Yale from last December, at the time of the delivery of the treasure, the law at that time gives the property to them. True? don’t know, don’t care.

Most crazy thing is that Yale says that the devices found in the city are property of the humanity and not of the Peruvian Government! 😕 somebody can explain that?

Yale also says that it has given back many boxes with archaeological rests to Peru, nevertheless, the boxes only contained bones, which not even were human, but that belonged to rest animals that not even belong to Machu Picchu!

The question is if Peru will be let this happen when Yale says that the devices belong in his totalidad… to them…

Yale no quiere devolver tesoros de Machu Picchu

Machu PicchuHoy estaba leyendo las noticias en U.S.A Today y me encontré con un artículo en el que se habla de cómo la Universidad de Yale está evadiendo desde hace ya casi 90 años la devolución de las piezas que Hiram Bingham encontró en la Ciudad Perdida en 1911.

Pues resulta que Yale dice que no tiene ninguna pieza de oro en su poder. Me pregunto cómo es posible que en Machu Picchu no hayan encontrado oro en aquella época (encontraban oro hasta debajo de las piedras…).

El Gobierno Peruano está estudiando la posibilidad de demandarlos para que las puedan puedan retornar a Cuzco antes del centenario del hallazgo (descubrimiento? no, eso no se “descubrió” debido a que ya estaba ahi 😉 ).

El Gobierno Peruano alega que Yale posee más de 5000 piezas, entre otro y plata e infinidad de artefactos usados a finales del siglo XV sin que los españoles hayan podido llegar a esa parte de la ceja de selva (se le llama así a la zona entre la sierra y la selva y tiene características de ambas regiones).

Según una carta de Yale de diciembre pasado, al momento de la entrega del tesoro, la ley regente en aquel entonces le da la propiedad de lo entontrado en Machu Picchu.

Lo más absurdo de todo, es que Yale dice que los artefactos encontrados en la ciudad son propiedad de la humanidad y no del Gobierno Peruano!!! 😕 alguien explica eso?

Yale también dice que ha devuelto muchas cajas con restos arqueológicos a Perú, sin embargo, las cajas sólo contenían restos óseos, los cuales ni siquiera eran humanos, sino que pertenecían a restos animales que ni siquiera pertenecen a Machu Picchu!

La pregunta es si Perú se dejará pisotear por Yale quien dice que los artefactos les pertenece en su totalidad…

Changing the mouse…

I was at Eva's the whole day because of the whole "it has been a year since I came to Spain" thing ( 😉 ) and I saw my really old Trust 5 buttons mouse 🙂 and decided to use it again as the Logitech was really awful!! (it's not optical!)

Will this one work better as the other 2?
