Vision Topics

#1 - Photography doesn't picture what we are seeing, or what we had in mind at the time that we were seeing. Are we seeeing the world differently than a camera does?
Maybe we don't understand what we're seeing.
Need to define what we see, make up some rules. What is it that we see or what do we want something to look like.
It doesn't match what I wanted it to look like, my mind was interpreteing it in a different way than it really is.
Define what I want. I want it to look like that.

Bean considerations

Wrong, a Java bean has a constructor with no arguments !!!!
public class PersonBean implements java.io.Serializable {
private String name;
private boolean deceased;
/** No-arg constructor (takes no arguments). */
public PersonBean() {

Question: Do we have to modify the code for a longer one for the sake of standards? Couldn't we use a "Hybrid bean"? a hybrid bean ...

LateX packages on Ubuntu

To install LateX packages on Ubuntu:
- Download the package from CTAN, the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
All files should be placed in the same directory, so it can be found by LateX. This will also allow to move everything in one go, if you want to build up a new system. To be found by LateX, the following directory tree must be respected.
- Create a folder in your home directory called texmf/tex/latex/packagefoldername (if you have multiple users on the same computer, you'll need to create a folder on every home directory):
e.g. texmf/tex/latex/listings
- If your package is a made of a single file with .sty extension, just place it in the folder and that's it. It will be accessed by LateX.
- If the package is made of several files, copy all files into the folder you've just created, or at least the file with the .ins extension, and run "latex filename.ins", this will create the filename.sty file. In my case, it was "latex listings.ins"
- Finally run "texhash ~/texmf" for LateX to recognise the new package.

You can now include your package in your .tex files in the preamble, such as:

Pinhole Photography

First snapshots done with the body of a Soviet Zenith XP12 and a pinhole in a tin can. It's taking me back to the beginning of the camera obcura, at least conceptually. Was thinking of Niépce. What about back to developing in a cupboard?
