Hello world


I'll post pictures and random stuff here. I have no plan or purpose yet.

I broke my iPhone out of the fruit jail. Yay! Finally. Um. Yeah, that’s right. I can do some more stuff. Like record video on a 3G. I thought that limitation was a hardware issue. But no. I haven’t tried it in daylight yet. Indoors the quality was pritti crappy (intentional typo, for you spelling nazis. Had you there for a sec, right?).

So what else is new? I’m able to put icons in folders. That’s quite neat. And the background is actually the background of my home screen.
I thought it was a bigger deal. The jailbreaking didn’t even remove any of my data. But I expected a pineapple boot logo. Boo.

Btw: here’s a nice video about how to create and add ringtones from any music file.

What’s cooking?

Dinner today:

Pork hamburgers
Fried red onion rings with virgin olive oil and white wine
I had some bread that looks like hamburger bread, but it’s healthier

And of course regular dressing and garlic sauce

I should’ve bought some green stuff to go with that.

I’m stuffed.
But I won’t buy pork hamburgers again.

Lorem ipsum?

Ever seen this text?

The standard Lorem Ipsum passage, used since the 1500s

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.”

1914 translation by H. Rackham

“On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.”
