Apodio – linux distribution

If you work with multimedia and you are on linux, you will know that it is not always an easy marriage… Getting all the libraries, making sure that all your hardware (camera, soundcard, graphics card…) is compatible and recognized…

We have recently installed Apodio, which is Mandriva based and it seems to be working quite well! A lot of audio programmes are included, and also there is a preconfigured setup with Jack and Alsa (audio server -not so easy to set up, it basically connects your hardware to your software).

In case of doubt try it as a live cd!

(more about live cd’s on wikipedia)

Pictures and a report of the install party at Nadine here.

And remember, live cd’s do not hurt one bit!

How to feel miserable as an artist

I think you can replace the word artist by quite a lot of “jobs”.
(And do not forget that I found this philisophical note very very funny 🙂 )

how to feel miserable as an artist

I got this quote from drawn.ca, a multi-author blog devoted to illustration, art, cartooning and drawing. Its purpose is to inspire creativity by sharing links and resources. (as they say about themselves :-))
Drawn! got this image from the blog of Keri Smith, who also explains for example on her website how to be a guerrilla artist.
Or how to make a portable tree an other fun stuff
