I don't know if you recall Sean Penn's visit o Iran as a journalist or not. Anyways, his article (Day 1 and 5) is now fully published published, titled SEAN PENN IN IRAN. You'll also find pictures and an amateur video.
Pretty interesting...

Camping & Comments

Last weekend I went to Emily Provincial Park. More pictures are available in the newly updates Pictures page. There is now a page with comments and some info on the campgrounds I've been to.

On a cool side note, Blogger finaly supports image hosting!

Digitize your old tapes and records - fast and free!

Long time ago when I used to write my computer articles I'd already introduced Audacity: Free Audio Editor and Recorder.
A few days ago I was digitizing my tapes and I figured how to use the cool "Noise Removal" feature of the program: Once you record a song in Audacity select a part of the track with no voices other than the white noise (probably the very beginning and the end), then go to Effects, select noise removal and click on "Get Noise Profile".
Then select the whole track, go back there, click on "remove noise" and bingo!
