Terrible Thursday for Buenos Aires: toxic gas cloud scare and flash floods

Terrible Thursday for the city of Buenos Aires: toxic gas scare in the morning with almost panic situations and flooding mid afternoon by the same rains that helped clear the cloud hovering over residents with sore throats and irritated eyes.

Who you gonna call?


Message from Wendy Dio

Today my heart is broken, Ronnie passed away at 7:45am 16th May. Many, many friends and family were able to say their private good-byes before he peacefully passed away. Ronnie knew how much he was loved by all. We so appreciate the love and support that you have all given us. Please give us a few days of privacy to deal with this terrible loss. Please know he loved you all and his music will live on forever.

Shittiest Sunday in a while...

General Rotors / Trillian Astra anyone?
« on: December 07, 2009, 06:08:30 AM »
Hahah, yes, I know. Trillian. That client that was the thing back in the day.
I remember how good I thought it was, until I eventually got tired of its staled development about 4 years ago and switched to something else.

However, I'm posting this as I feel some curiosity towards the "new" Trillian Astra, and because they're selling pro licences right now for 10U$S.
Considering this offer, I'm wondering if anyone here tried it or has something to say about it.

'cause either this thing is a POS or they're going for the' zomg christmas savings' route right now.
(and I also would like to hear something before I even bother trying the free version)

General Rotors / Symphony of (car) horns
« on: September 24, 2009, 07:07:56 AM »
A new day begins, outraged workers arise.
They block out streets, wave their ugly flags,
Make a commotion and stir up the crowd
And car drivers express their anger.

This is why I hate working downtown.

Do you've to deal with loud demonstrations, and, if so, how often?

General Rotors / Kids these days...

General Rotors / tipping... tipping... TIPPING
« on: August 04, 2009, 01:39:21 PM »
What's your general idea when it comes to tipping?

I honestly don't go around doing calculations (as I've seen many around here seem to do), I just hand over a handful and that's it.
This has started to bug me as I often get to think I may not be tipping enough.
After all.. what is to tip enough?

General Rotors / Concerts and Events
« on: August 04, 2009, 12:33:53 PM »
I'm off to see Primal Fear and Sinner on this very Saturday.
I'm in needs of seeing the baldy and it's high doses of archaic heavy metal. :P

Afterwards, I'm hoping to see Depeche Mode (yes) on what I've just learned will be the last concert of this tour. Should be exciting.

There's also Living Colour in November. I've an extra ticket for this one and I've no idea who'd be willing to get it. Yet.

Oh, I almost forgot about Faith No More. I'm quite anxious about this one.

So, What's up in the horizon for the rest of you?

General Discussion / My Steam account's been hijacked
« on: April 12, 2009, 11:29:59 PM »
Yeah, it was really stupid.  :mad:

I've already contacted Valve Support about it, so until then... don't trust anything that comes out from my account Sr. Tortura (srtortura)

Just a heads up.

(Actually, I've been back since Sunday night but.. eh.)

I had a great time. Maybe I did way too many things for my taste, but that's okay... 'cause there's always plenty of stuff to do there.
You see, this city, Bariloche, acts as a sort of hub from where you can go to many places around. Since most places are a few kilometers away you can go to a mountain, for example, in a day and then come back. And that's precisely what we did.

1st day
... We did nothing. Got to my cousin's place, made a small recon around and then started unpacking.
Trip to my cousins house was a bit long (she's 25km away from the city)

2nd day
We headed to the central area of Bariloche (Centro), did some sight-seeing, had some lunch, made some consultations with some tour agencies... and then we ended at the chocolate museum. :E
See, Bariloche is not only renowned due to its location, but also for its chocolates and the many stores around.
The biggest (and first one in Bariloche) chocolate factory, Fenoglio, opened up this museum sometime ago to show a bit about the history of chocolate.

Here's Richard Charles I (my bad)... and his massive cocoa bean.

Here be some chocolate cups. People back then were so fancy with chocolate, that they had everything prepared.

After the museum, we got to the beach to rest a bit after having so much cocoa shoved in our faces.

This is the beach located downtown. And that in front is Neuquen.

3rd day,
My girl decided we should go to this lake, Lago Escondido (Hidden Lake), which was at about 5km away from my cousin's place.

To get to this lake, you have to circle around this peninsula, up to that small patch of water you see right before the bay.
So we had to go through the woods.

And we did.

Midway through, we took a small detour and ended up at the coast of the lake facing inside, Lago Moreno (Moreno Lake)

And after some more walking, we got to Lago Escondido

Okay, so we were at the lake... now what? We had to go back, right?
Since getting there ended up being a bit painful, and since there was no transportation whatsoever (at least not at this time of the year... damnit), we ended up going the other way around, thinking it'd be shorter.

We ended up here, where you see that little B. That's Colonia Suiza (Swiss Colony).
We ended up walking straight for 8 hours (total) the nice ammount of.... 20 kilometers.

Called a cab, 'get me back home, damnit', and that's it.

4th day.

Woke up with sore legs and a sore neck. I think my feet are still there.. somewhere.
For this day we decided going somewhere, making sure first there'd be some actual transportation around.
And so we headed to Lago Gutierrez (Gutierrez Lake)

This was my call, mainly 'cause I wanted to go to a tea house located by the shore, about a kilometer away from the bus stop.
But when we got there, it was closed. :[
Some old hag told us to keep going (!), we'd find a small town and a tea house. That required more walking, so.... no.
We headed back and saw this museum, which was near the bus stop.
Closed too. :[

We rushed back downtown and booked a small trip somewhere, before my head exploded.

5th day,
The tour we booked took us to Isla Victoria (Victoria Island), the biggest island located in the middle of the Nahuel Huapi lake.

Inside the ferry that took us to the island.


The water at the pier of the island.

Ze woods!

More woods

And some dead pines too.

We actually had a fun time here. Despite we had to do some walking, we were somewhat recovered from that dreadful walk on Monday.
Even the tour guide was actually informative and clever (a rare find).
After we were through with the island, the ferry took us to the other side of the lake, to the Parque Nacional de Los Arrayanes (Arrayans National Park)

Arrayans are a very rare type of tree. They're weak, they don't grow that high, so in order to get to the light, they twist and trust on each other to reach up.
Pretty funky.

I'll get to the rest of the trip tomorrow. Too tired now.

General Discussion / Welp, I'm leaving too

I'm headed to the south for a much needed vacation.
Just a pleasant trip, do some sight-seeing and just relaxing.

Riiiight here.


Just some pics I thought I'd share about this place.
Promise I'll show you more. :P


I'll be out for a week starting tomorrow.

See ya'll then.

General Rotors / what sucks about getting a new keyboard and mouse
« on: February 21, 2009, 11:42:40 AM »
Getting used to it, especially when it has that ergonomic crapola (which in the end turns out to be better than what you had before)

(Unfortunately, this is not the case right now  :mad:)

Table and Avo & Cado, opposing enemies!
You can tell that Table is a Saiyan from his tail. He’s similar to a certain person in facial features, but who…!? Also, Avo and Kado, in pursuit of Table, arrive on Earth!!
