OK, Yahoo as an awful lot of money. They took Tumblr yesterday for 1.1 billion U.S.A. dollars.
But. They did also put some effort into Flickr . Yesterday redesign was a major move for a prominent player. That also did involve a certain dose of courage that - to me - seems to have been missing in the recent (and controversial) ipernity update.
What's your feeling on the topic ?
I've just installed Google Chrome browser for Mac OS X on my MacBook, made some screenshots and tried to upload them on Ipernity via browser itself.
But, once again, it seems that the OpenID login procedure doesn't work - as with Chromium.
Annoying, to say little ...
If the above image doesn't scares you, you could enjoy the (few) photos I did during the 2nd italian BeachCamp that went on, as the first one, at Lido Venus in Francavilla al Mare (CH) - Italy.
The album is available HERE !
... aaand at last, a long last, I've finally acccomplished the purchase of the bike of my dreams - or at least the bike which more approaches the dreams of speed and beauty and the day-to-day qualities which are an important part of my way of living the motorcycle ...
"She" is a (second hand) Yamaha Fz1 Fazer , of october 2006, heavily customized by the previous owner in memory of the glorious days of Kenny Roberts in the early '80s (the period of his youth).
Also Valentino Rossi…
This year the fine pals of the Puglia's "Fazer Commando" of the FazerItalia forum have organized the 2nd edition of the yearly FazerSud bike tour in the beautiful environment of the Gargano area.
This year we were also graced with sun and warmth ...
Unfortunately I had some family problems and so made very few "social" photos ... in any case you can see the entire album HERE .
The 2009 biking season has finally started last sunday, when a pale sun showed up on Puglia's region and permitted us to plan a trip from Bari to Vieste covering circa 280km in one morning.
Unfortunately dirty roads and police along the way slowed us too much to get at Vieste and back at home, so at a certain point we stopped, tooked some photos, smoked a cigarette, made a laugh and then go back at home.
As usual the full album is visible HERE .
Last sunday, november 2nd 2008, here in the south of Italy we had an amazing wheater, with temperatures well over the 24° Celsius so we took the chance to do some km above our beloved bikes.
We went to the amazing Certosa of Padula and then to eat "something" to the il Castello restaurant in Marsico Nuovo.
See the album HERE . Enjoy && comment if you like!
At the end of April 2007 we took the chance to stay on our own for the weekend. So we choose Otranto nearby area to stay and then had (another) of our quick tour in Lecce.
We choose (under the counseling of a colleague) the Masseria Gattamora bed & breakfast ( www.gattamora.it ) to stay.
This album talks about it. Have a look, eventually enjoy and leave a comment if you feel so :-D
Long time has passed since I last wrote here, but a lot of things have happened and in between near 30 days of complete "internet black out" :-D
Here are some of the photos I took in Mauritius during the second half of our honeymoon.

Circa a month without posting anything here in the Ipernity blog ... sorry fot that guys !
But, as you can begin to imagine looking at the image below I've been quite busy with a wedding. My own wedding :-D
At the moment I've got only a bunch of photos taken by some friends and parents. There could be more of them but I'm not complaining since EVERYBODY danced, eat, drinked and enjoyed the party with us with much pleasure from our part, seeing our efforts "rewarded".
The album for…
Year 2005 was a beautiful one for me, I got a degree, enjoyed many things and many places.
Among them I had the chance to visiti Osimo, Ancona, Numana, Recanati and such places with my friend Ciccio and her girlfriend and his family.
The weather wasn't perfect but the light was amazing as you can see in the image below and some other in the album.
The album is visible HERE , leave a comment (if you like so) and ENJOY!
This album is probably one of the oldest done with a digital camera.
We spent a week or so in the country near Grosseto Marina a travelled a little in the nearby going in places like Siena, Talamone, Grosseto, Castiglione della Pescaia, Saturnia terms and others.
That was also the last time we saw or texan friend Shanese, who was in love at the time with my friend Giuseppe. ;-(

The album presented today is a bit unusual for me since it's not my work.
Those photos were taken during a photowalk in my city's [ BITONTO ] old town after a photography course taken by my father and other people with the teaching of Nicola Ditillo , a professional local photographer.
The entire album is visible here: http://www.ipernity.com/doc/koolinus/album/69564 (and once it was also signaled on the italian TravelBlog.it website).
Today's post is to put in evidence a bunch of photos of the hardware and the people I work with everyday since Jan 2007.
Most of the photos are made with my Nokia N80 cell/smart-phone and the quality won't be high as one can expect. Also the subject isn't particularly interesting but I do like to show to my friends and family what I do to live, so ...
The album page is HERE .
p.s. = I do have a not so little number of images to add, so this album will grow over the time…
