As usual, here is the solution to a problem I experienced with Office 2007, just in case it could save some time to someone else. Problem Since I installed Office 2007, when I double-clicked on any XLS file to open it, Excel 2007 opened but did not load the file or [...]

Pensiero (19)

Mi domando che senso abbia chiedersi se c'è una vita dopo la morte quando al momento non ne vedo una neanche dopo l'orario di lavoro. Dario de Judicibus, Roma, 7 novembre 2008

Preoccupazioni

Due notizie pubblicate oggi su due quotidiani italiani, entrambe relative al nuovo presidente degli Stati Uniti, per il resto apparentemente senza alcun altro nesso: il Corriere della Sera titola «Gli italiani sul sito del New York Times: Noi non siamo come Berlusconi», sottotitolo «Quasi 50 pagine di messaggi di scuse a [...]

To change, or not to change?

Barack Obama è Presidente. Come molti europei e soprattutto italiani ho tifato per lui. Al contrario di molti europei e molti italiani tuttavia, non mi aspetto che il famoso slogan «Change» si applichi tanto presto anche alle relazioni fra Stati Uniti e il resto del mondo. Prima infatti di essere di colore, di origine kenyota, [...]

Six degrees of separation

We are all disabled

On March 2008 I published an article on this blog where I stated that we are all different, and thence that we are all normal, included disabled people, because being different is the normality. If you have not read it, you may want to do it before continuing to read this one. Now I wish to demonstrate exactly the opposite, that is, that we [...]

Coopera(dia)tive

Se mai avete fatto la spesa presso i supermercati della Coop vi sarà capitato di sentire ogni tanto l'altoparlante ripetere il ritornello che assicura i consumatori che in tutti i prodotti in vendita sono assolutamente assenti gli OGM, ovvero gli organismi geneticamente modificati. Beh, forse vi sorprenderà sapere che è vero solo formal [...]

Managed slump

What's happening in Europe? Are we experimenting the same pain of the USA financial markets? I don't think so. The European and the American credit systems are different. There is no reason why European Stock Exchange yesterday suffered their biggest one-day fall in the last 20 years. Unless... Well, let us suppose that you are a Europ [...]

Poesie a memoria

Ieri mia figlia Isabella mi ha detto che durante un'interrogazione d'italiano le hanno chiesto di recitare una poesia a memoria, una del Foscolo, e che verso la fine si è bloccata, ha avuto come un vuoto di memoria. Con le poesie a volte è così: finché le reciti va tutto bene, ma se ti perdi anche una sola una parola, può succedere che no [...]

Open letter to Spike Lee

Open letter to Spike Lee by Didala Ghilarducci Translation from Italian of the original letter by Dario de Judicibus Dear Mr. Lee, my name is Didala Ghilarducci. I am a former partisan.

Il ribaltino

L'altroieri, come faccio spesso la sera, ho acceso la televisione sul canale 100 di Sky, quello del telegiornale tanto per intenderci. C'era un intervista a Daniele Capezzone, che ho avuto modo di conoscere diversi anni fa quando aveva dato il suo supporto attraverso Radio Radicale ad alcune mie iniziative a sostegno dell'affido condi [...]

The Digital Dark Age

Preface Yesterday my 13-years old daughter called me for help because her laptop hard disk was rather full. It was a matter of minutes to realize that most of her storage (i.e. 90%) was filled by images, audio and video files. In fact, she has a camera and she likes to take lots of snapshots of her friends. Since her digital camera allows [...]
