  • A la recherche de la poudre d'or

    A la recherche de la poudre d'or
    Madagascar - Ces orpailleurs qui cherchent de la poudre d’or dans les entrailles des terres aurifères, à proximité de la bourgade d’Ivato ; les voyageurs de passage les assimilent à des cultivateurs. Pourtant, lors de la saison touristique, ils sont nombreux à les apercevoir patauger dans les eaux boueuses. Mais ils sont pressés de se rendre en voiture à Antoetra, le hameau qui est le point de départ d’un trek de plusieurs jours pour visiter les villages et populations montagnardes zafimaniry. Alors, si on ne sait pas que ces familles qui creusent sont à la recherche d’or, on ne leur prête pas attention. Ils se fondent dans ce décor tourmenté.

  • 2020: das Jahr in dem ich Geduld lernte

    blau
    Geduld ist nicht meine Stärke, echt nicht. Wer hätte gedacht, dass sie dieses Jahr so strapaziert wird. Corona, da müssen wir alle einen langen Atem haben. Diese blöde Krankheit, die ich nicht loswerde (und die Uniklinik rät dringend von einer stationären Aufnahme ab - wegen Corona ... ) Und ipernity kränkelt nun auch noch. Danke an die ima, die sich kümmert. Erinnert euch: Wir haben ipernity schon vor dem Untergang gerettet, da sollten wir jetzt wirklich noch mal geduldig sein.…

  • 2019-02-28 Aide à renouveler ipernity !

    Cher utilisateur gratuits du site Web ipernity ! Le site Web ipernity que vous utilisez actuellement a été développé entre 2009 et 2013. Son concept et sa technologie ont donc 10 ans. Après 2013, il a connu une évolution organique et comprend maintenant plus de 21 000 fichiers html en réseau. Sa fiabilité opérationnelle a sensiblement diminué. Les adaptations pour le maintenir à l'état de l'art deviennent de plus en plus difficiles et coûteuses. Il est donc devenu inévitable de le reprogra…

(We may share a survey poll soon) Which means I have fewer time to reply to the su…

  • Unofficial User Poll - Make Your Vote Count!

    All of the uncertainty over the future of ipernity and the ongoing discussions about how to secure its finances got me thinking about what this great site has to offer and more importantly just how much we’d be willing, or need, to pay to keep it afloat. In the past I’ve said I’d happily pay twice the current subscription fees and I’ve seen lots of other members make similar statements, but recent developments seem to indicate that based on current membership numbers even that level of undert…
