    • Salut

      Mon chum et moi on voulait y aller une semaine ou deux cet été. Je t’écris parce qu’on est deux bouettes en organisation et qu’on est pas ben bon pour planifier nos voyages! Y’a deux ans en argentine on planifiait dans l’avion.. Alors, as-tu des incontournables à ne pas manquer au Costa Rica? Des hotels cool, pas chères? Des trucs que je pense pas?

      Merci vraiment beaucoup d’avance!!!

  • Wednesday

     

    • Aussi, où as-tu pris ton billet d’avion et combien ça t’a couter? J’ai l’aire intense pas mal ! Plus de questions

      Merci!!

  • Thursday

     

    • Bien oui que je me souviens de toi Ne te gène pas! Pour ce qui est des billets, il y a quelque fois des mega deals pour le costa rica affichés sur des sites comme yuldeals.net mais ce sont habituellement des dates vraiment pas flexibles. Le gars avec qui je partais n’avait aucune flexibilité donc on a payé le plein prix, 750$ de Hotwire, on a juste magasiné en ligne pour ce voyage, mais à mon expérience, p-e devrais-tu téléphoner à des agences aussi. On est juste allé 10 jours, encore ça c’est vraiment le strict strict strict minimum, 14 jours devrait être assez comme minimum, tu vas avoir un petit peu plus de temps pour relaxer que nous! Nous on a voyagé vraiment pour pas cher en bus locaux à ~4-5$ le trajet et des hostels à 7-20$ par personne. Le Costa Rica, j’ai trouvé ça vraiment bien, c’est très relax.Denis et moi, on a plutôt “vécu”, on a pas fait grand “activités” genre zip lining, bungee, horse riding, atv, etc. en tant que tel. so je sais pas ce que tu recherches mais on a été relax sur les activités en tant que tel.

      Je te reviens à propos des lieux en fds!

  • Thursday

     

    • Merci!!! On n’a pas ben ben d’argent pour ce voyage, mais on a vraiment le goût de partir, alors être relax ça nous convient vraiment! Si t’as le temps de m’envoyer ton itinéraire ça serait vraiment cool!!

      Tes photos sont malade en passant

      Merci beaucoup !

    • Comme on n’avait pas planifié louer d’auto et qu’on avait seulement 10 jours, on avait décidé de ne pas aller aux extrémités et de plutôt se concentrer sur le centre du pays. On est arrivé à San José et on a tout de suite été prendre un bus pour Manuel Antonio sur la côte du pacifique. À mois de connaître un local et d’avoir du temps, San José, c’est très laid et tout le monde dit de ne pas s’y attarder, même pas 1 journée. Anyway, c’est le hub central de transport donc entre 2 sites, y’a de bonnes chances que tu te retrouves 1 nuit à San José si tu te déplaces en bus. Manuel Antonio, j’ai bien aimé l’ambiance, pas trop touristique, par contre, le parc national est minuscule (½ journée même pas!) SI tu vas à Manuel Antonio, je te suggères d’aller déjeuner au Costa Linda si tu restes à Manuel Antonio même. On avait une chambre pas trop classe dans un hostel là mais ça fait la job en masse.

    • bon mon msg s’est envoyé sans en pesant “enter” pour faire un paragraphe, oh well, la suite s’en vient!

  • 8 minutes ago

     

    • Je te recommande d’acheter le travel book du Costa Rica publié par Moon, il est vraiment bien, p-e ton chum pourrait combiner avec un lonely planet ou Rough Guide. Pour ce qui est de planifier, Denis et moi n’avions pas vriament planifié à part pour le fait qu’on savait qu’on avait vraiment pas grand temps, donc qu’on ne pourrait pas aller aux extrémités.

      J’en ai écris bcp, je ne me suis pas relu, here it is!:

      Nous on a resté dans Manuel Antonio même, mais bcp de gens restent à Quepos qui est juste à côté, MA était très petit et y’avait pas grand chose à faire le soir, alors que Quepos semblait être un endroit plus actif. Mais côté plage, une belle journée dans la plage du parc national de MA c’est bien!

      Nous ne sommes pas allé à Monteverde où y’a bcp de ziplining et des passerelles dans la cloud forest, c’est p-e bien mais c’est pas mal touristique je crois aussi. Mais d’autres gens à qui on a parlé ont adorés.

      On est pas allé non plus dans la péninsule nord ouest, Montezuma, Malpais (par le traversier de Puntarenas qui se rend a Paquera) mais si tu as du temps et que tu veux relaxer sur la plage, ce sont des endroits pas touristiques, on y seraient allés avoir eu plus de temps.

      Apres manuel antonio, on est allé à San Gerardo de Rivas pour le Mont Chirripo, ça a été le highlight de notre voyage, mais ça prend du linge chaud et ça été plus difficile que je le pensais par contre! Et il faut réserver sinon t’arrives sur place et tu dois attendre 1-2 jours pour pouvoir rentrer sur la montagne.

      Ensuite on est allé au volcan Arenal en passant par San José, et je peux te dire bof… moi je n’ai pas trouvé que ça vallait la peine du tout, le volcan est super loin, tu ne peux pas l’approcher, il n’est pas en activité, c’est touristique. Le highlight de ce site a été quand on a été dans une rivière publique en dessous d’un pont où il avait une source d’eau chaude et où on pouvait aller la gratos, mais sinon, je te recommande de plutôt aller au Volcan Pos où tu peux aller de très près le cratère, (il n’y a aucun volcan en activité donc tu ne peux pas voir de lave mais tu vois des lacs avec jayser etc et ça l’air que c’est bien. J,y irais si c’était à refaire.

      Ensuite on est allé direct coup de tête non planifié sur la Cote Est de Caraibes à la pointe Puerto Viejo, c’est une autre ambiance, plus rasta relax, mais ce n’est vraiment pas gros. On a été la un dimanche soir donc il n’y avait vraiment pas bcp d’action le soir à part un bar avec des crack addicts assez spécial! C’est pas une place que je recommanderais aux couples typiques en lune de miel si tu vois le genre. Mais j’ai bien aimé les gens que j’ai rencontré là. Si tu y vas, va a l’auberge Pagalu Hostel, mais réserve car c’était full, mais ça avait l’air vraiment vraiment bien comme ambiance www.pagalu.com et pour pas cher. Ne vas pas a Rocking J que tous les guides recommandent a moins de vouloir faire la fete toute la nuit avec plein d’autre monde qui veut jsute faire la fete a fonds la caisse sans dormir. Cet hostel paye les livres big $$$ pour tjrs etre recommandé.

      On n’a pas bcp vu de faune, si tu veux en voir, il faut aller au parc au sud ouest, le parc Corcovado, mais ça prend du temps pour s’y rendre, c’est ça le problème. Mais ça l’air que c’est vraiment bien.

      Sinon, il y a aussi le parc de Tortuguero à l’opposé au nord est, qui a des tortues et tout mais encore là, ce n’est pas facile s’y rendre, je pense qu’il faut meme prendre l’avion ou des transports assez privés car c’est difficile d’accès et en février, ce n’était pas la saison pour aller là.

      En février on a eu de la température superbe, p-e apporter 2 paires de jeans plutot qu’une par exemple, la nuit il fait tjrs un peu plus frisquet! On a juste eu genre 5 mins de pluie, on a été chanceux, je ne sais pas ça va être quelle saison quand tu penses y aller.

      N’hésites pas si tu as des questions! ou appelle moi

Ask Slashdot: DD-WRT Upgrade To 802.11n?

Posted by timothy on Tuesday October 25, @10:38AM
from the bending-over-backwards-for-flexibility dept.

 

First time accepted submitter krinderlin writes“My home network consists of a Linksys WRT54GL for WAN access and a WRT54G version 8 for a wireless bridge for my Blu-Ray and old XBox 360*. Due to a recent move and coaxial jack placements, I can’t run Ethernet to the office, so I’m now looking at about 8 wireless clients at any given time. I’d like to start piecing together a network upgrade to 802.11n, but want to keep the flexibility and power of DD-WRT. So what 802.11n routers do you have with DD-WRT? What would you recommend for PCIe x1 and USB adapters? *Because $100 for a 802.11g adapter is pure insanity.”

Tools: ORBMT, DMT

Here is how I get my line stats from SpeedTouch 516v6,

Simply disconnect the working DSL modem from router

Connect direct to LAN port on PC,

Launch DMT tool with 192.168.1.254/23 IP address (default)

*If Modem is rebooted TCP-IPv4 setting from Windows need to be changed.

Change TCP/IPv4 settings,

Manually enter the following,

IP: 10.0.0.1
Subnet 255.0.0.0
Default gateway: 10.0.0.138

Preferred DNS server: 10.0.0.138

Once DSL modem is sync’d launch DMT tool

connect using 10.0.0.138 IP.

No need to touch Login/Password.

*but for me doing it the first way doesn’t seems to work for me.
so i manually enter those info to IPv4 to gain access.

1080p Does Matter – Here’s When (Screen Size vs. Viewing Distance vs. Resolution)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , — heredago @ 15:09

I’ve read various articles debating the importance of the 1080p. I want to set the record straight once and for all: if you are serious about properly setting up your viewing room, you will definitely benefit from 1080p (and even 1440p.) Why? Because the 1080p resolution is the first to deliver enough detail to your eyeball when you are seated at the proper distance from the screen. But don’t just take my word for it: read on for the proof.

There are a few obvious factors to being able to detect resolution differences: the resolution of the screen, the size of the screen, and the viewing distance. To be able to detect differences between resolutions, the screen must be large enough and you must sit close enough. So the question becomes “How do I know if need a higher resolution or not?”. Here is your answer.

Based on the resolving ability of the human eye (with 20/20 vision it is possible to resolve 1/60th of a degree of an arc), it is possible to estimate when the differences between resolutions will become apparent. Using the Home Theater Calculator spreadsheet as a base, I created a chart showing, for any given screen size, how close you need to sit to be able to detect some or all of the benefits of a higher resolution screen. (Click the picture below for a larger version.)

Resolution vs. Screen Size vs. Viewing Distance Chart

What the chart shows is that, for a 50-inch screen, the benefits of 720p vs. 480p start to become apparent at viewing distances closer than 14.6 feet and become fully apparent at9.8 feet. For the same screen size, the benefits of 1080p vs. 720p start to become apparent when closer than 9.8 feet and become full apparent at 6.5 feet. In my opinion, 6.5 feet is closer than most people will sit to their 50″ plasma TV (even through the THX recommended viewing distance for a 50″ screen is 5.6 ft). So, most consumers will not be able to see the full benefit of their 1080p TV.

However, front projectors and rear projection displays are a different story. They make it very easy to obtain large screen sizes. Plus, LCD and Plasma displays are constantly getting larger and less expensive. In my home, for example, I have a 123-inch screen and a projector with a 1280×720 resolution. For a 123-inch screen, the benefits of 720p vs. 480p starts to become apparent at viewing distances closer than 36 feet (14 feet behind my back wall) and become fully apparent at 24 feet (2 feet behind my back wall). For the same screen size, the benefits of 1080p vs. 720p start to become apparent when closer than 24 feet and become full apparent at 16 feet (just between the first and second row of seating in my theater). This means that people in the back row of my home theater would see some improvement if I purchased a 1080p projector and that people in the front row would notice a drastic improvement. (Note: the THX recommended max viewing distance for a 123″ screen is 13.7 feet).

So, how close should you be sitting to your TV? Obviously, you need to look at your room and see what makes sense for how you will be using it. If you have a dedicated viewing room and can place seating anywhere you want, you can use this chart as a guideline. It’s based on THX and SMPTE specifications for movie theaters; the details are available in the Home Theater Calculator spreadsheet.

Recommended Seating Distances and Resolution Benefits

Looking at this chart, it is apparent that 1080p is the lowest resolution to fall within the recommended seating distance range. Any resolution less than 1080p is not detailed enough if you are sitting the proper distance from the screen. For me and many people with large projection screens, 1080p is the minimum resolution you’d want.

In fact, you could probably even benefit from 1440p. If you haven’t heard of 1440p, you will.Here’s a link to some info on Audioholics.com. It is part of the HDMI 1.3 spec, along with 48-bit color depth, and will probably surface for the public in 2009 or so. You’ll partially be able to see the benefits of 1440p at the THX Max Recommended viewing distance and the resolution benefits will be fully apparent if you are just a little closer. I’ve read of plans for resolutions reaching 2160p but I don’t see any benefit; you’d have to sit too darn close to the screen to notice any improvement. If you sit too close, you can’t see the far edges of the screen.

In conclusion

If you are a videophile with a properly setup viewing room, you should definitely be able to notice the resolution enhancement that 1080p brings. However, if you are an average consumer with a flat panel on the far wall of your family room, you are not likely to be close enough to notice any advantage. Check the chart above and use that to make your decision.

ISF states the the most important aspects of picture quality are (in order): 1) contrast ratio, 2) color saturation, 3) color accuracy, 4) resolution. Resolution is 4th on the list and plasma is generally superior to LCD in all of the other areas (but much more prone to reflections/glare.) So pick your display size, then measure your seating distance, and then use the charts above to figure out if you would benefit from the larger screen size. So be sure to calibrate your screen! I recommend the following for calibration.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Media centers like XBMC and Boxee are excellent tools for playing local media on your big screen, but many new (and even experienced) users run into one big stumbling block: How do you get them to correctly identify your media? Here’s how.

Today we’re taking a look at how to prep your media for maximum wow factor and functionality when accessed through popular media center front ends like XBMC. When you’re done, you’ll have a completely customized media center experience that will show off your media collection in all its every-episode-of-Arrested-Development glory. Using a media manager with your media collection is a great way to whip things into shape.

You’ve spent the time to set up a sweet home media center running an awesome media center application like XBMC or Boxee; you’ve even done a little tweaking with your new installation. Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and really dig into whipping your collection into shape, including all your DVD art, album art, fan art, and more.

By default, apps like XBMC and Boxee scan your library and scrape the internet to pull in data about your media from a variety of sources like IMDb and TheTVDB.com (so you end up with cool DVD art, fan art, and more—like you see in the image below). We’re not knocking how great it is to install XBMC, point it at a folder of media, and have it do the dirty work of scraping for you. Despite the convenience of such an arrangement, it isn’t without flaws.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

If your media center database becomes corrupt or you reinstall it without backing up the old database, a new crawl for a large collection can take hours—we’ve had a crawl take the better part of a day on an XBMC install plugged into a packed media server. Even if you’ve backed up your media center’s database, it’s still terribly inconvenient to go into individual entries and make changes. Want new fan art for your favorite movie? Want to change the text of the summary on a television series? If you don’t like the way things shook out in the automated scraping then you’re in for a tedious headache when it’s time to go in and tweak things bit by bit.

Instead of relying on your media center software to scrape multiple internet sources and build an enormous database—which, as we mentioned above, you’ll have to rebuild all over again if anything goes wrong—media managers inject media information into the individual folders that your media is stored in. Media managers give you way more control over tweaking the images and art used to identify your media, and even if your whole XBMC installation becomes corrupted and the database is shot to hell, you’ll be able to rebuild the database in a matter of minutes and it’ll be just as perfect as it was without any intensive web-database crawling or hand tweaking. XBMC gives preferences to local information and won’t scrape the internet if the information it needs is present with the media.

A casual search turns up dozens of media management applications, but we’re going to focus on one application today and walk you through using it. Media Companion is user friendly and it’s an application under constant tweaking and revision, so changes to online databases won’t knock it out of commission like they would other more slowly updated media managers.

Before proceeding you’ll, of course, need a copy of XBMC and a directory of media in some semblance of order. Check out our previous guide to turbo charging your XBMC installation to cover both bases. A mini refresher on folder structure is appropriate here, as the cleaner your folder structure the more effectively both XBMC’s built-in scrapers and 3rd party scrapers like Media Companion can work. Your folders should match the layout below—sans NFO files if you’ve never used an external scraper before.

\Movies\
—-\MovieTitle\
—— MovieTitle.mkv
—— folder.jpg
—— fanart.jpg
—— movie-trailer.flv
—— title.nfo

\TV Shows\
—- \Show\
—— folder.jpg
—— fanart.jpg
——- \Season\
——— folder.jpg

The better organized your folders the easier it will be for Media Companion to make proper matches and the less time you’ll spend fixing things.

One last thing before you download Media Companion and get started. Now would be an excellent time—if you’re a current XBMC user and not setting it up for the first time—to export your library. If somehow things go terribly wrong and you want to switch back to the old XBMC-scraped database you had, you can import your old library. We can’t foresee you wanting to give up the fine control using a 3rd party manager gives you, but it’s better safe than sorry. Look under Settings -> Video -> Library to find the export function seen in the screenshot below Note: If it’s too difficult to see what’s going on in any of the screenshots in this guide, click on them to enlarge the Media Companion interface to full size.

Get Your Hands on a Copy of Media Companion

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee
The best place to get a copy of Media Companion is to hop right into their forums. The author of the application has done such an intensive overhaul to the application in the last few months he removed the links on the main page and directs everyone to thefrequent new releases announced in the announcements forum. The current version as of this writing is Media Companion Gen2 3.251 available here.

Installation is a snap, just extract the Media Companion archive into a location of your choice. Settings are stored in the local folder, Media Companion is a portable application. After extracting Media Companion and running it, you should see the unpopulated interface shown in the screenshot below.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Media Companion Initial Setup

Once you’ve extracted and fired up Media Companion, you’ll need to add folders for all your media sources. Media Companion does recursive search so you’ll only need to add the master folder for movies and television shows in their respective categories. The interface of Media Companion tends to lean more towards the “put everything in front of the user” philosophy, versus hiding things away in streamlined menus. It’s worth familiarizing yourself with the interface for a few minutes before adding in your media since the initial scan is going to tie things up. The folders button, used to add media, is on the end of the second menubar row:

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Once you add your media folders and start the scan, you’ll want to leave Media Companion alone for a while. Depending on the movie, scraping can take anywhere from 5-30 seconds—dependent on whether or not fan art is found, if you’re accessing your collection from a local hard drive, USB hard drive, or over a network. If you have hundreds of movies and television shows, it might be worth doing your initial run before you go to work or before bed so Media Companion has a nice big block of time to work through them all. Our test collection took several hours.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

If you’re used to XBMC taking hours to scrape your media collection, you might look at this lengthy initial scrape and wonder exactly how you’re saving yourself any time. Remember that, unlike XBMC and other media center apps, media managers like Media Companion don’t just build a single database and shove everything into it. They actually save the cover art, fan art, and media information to the folder where each individual piece of media is stored. Thus, the hardest your media center will have to “scrape” in the future is to look in the folder where the movie or television show is found.

What to Do After Your Initial Scrape

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee
If your folders are neatly organized and your cat didn’t reboot your computer during the scan to spite you for not getting her a copy of Seascapes: HD Deep Sea Adventures, the results of your scan should look a lot like the image above. A nice long list of movies, proper movie information and art scraped for each movie—and now stored safely with your media instead of in an easily corrupted database!—and all you’ll need to do is fire up XBMC and refresh the library by removing and adding your sources again (you can manually delete the database files, but we really don’t recommend that kind of mucking about if you’re not an XBMC guru).

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

If you didn’t end up with a picture perfect database—a 100% perfect scan is nearly unheard of—then you’ll need to do a little tidying up. Errors in the scan fall into several categories and you can approach repairing them with the following methods.

The easiest error to fix is naming error. If your folders are sloppy or your file names cryptic, Media Companion—and any scraper for that matter—will have trouble with automated scanning. If you cleaned up your folders per our structure example at the top of this guide you should be in good shape. If you had a few strays you can easily correct the error in Media Companion.

Select the movie, click on the “Change Movie” button in the menu bar, next to the “Folders” button you used earlier. This will pull up an IMDb search interface. Search for the movie like so:

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Find it, initiate a rescan, and now the phantom entry will be populated and ready for insertion into your XBMC database:

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

When a movie scans properly—the name is correct, the movie information is correct—but it lacks artwork, the fix is simple. In the screenshot below you can see—in XBMC— how the movie Annie was scanned properly save for the artwork.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

We just need to hop over into Media Companion and remedy the situation by searching for the movie Annie in our database—use the search box above the movie list to save time—and then right click on the movie to set the fan and poster art.

It turns out that Media Companion didn’t fail us on the fan-art front, no fan art for the movie exists in any of the databases. Given the depth and variety of most media databases, this is fairly unusual, but we won’t let that slow us down. You can do one of two things at this point: fire up the movie and capture a screenshot to serve as your fan art or search online for movie wallpaper or high resolution images to import. We had trouble finding anything really high resolution from the actual movie so we opted to grab a fairly high resolution picture of the motion picture soundtrack for the movie and add some white space to make it 16:9 for proper full screen fan-art awesomeness. Note: If you take the time to make your own fan art or hunt down fan art elsewhere on the web, please take a moment to visit sites like TheMovieDB and TheTVDB to share them. That way the next person won’t have to go through the same effort you did to get great artwork for their movies.

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Repeat the process for the movie cover if necessary, and then go check out your handiwork in XBMC:

How to Whip Your Movie and TV Show Art into Shape for XBMC and Boxee

Boom! Everything is beautiful, the fan art looks great—although if we were being super picky we’d go back in and delete the “original soundtrack” line from the bottom of the picture, eh?—and the best part is the pictures and data are stored with the movie file itself so they’ll never get separated again.

Setting up Media Companion is only a tiny bit more effort than setting up XBMC itself. It gives you radically more control over how your media is displayed, lets you customize to your heart’s content without the hassle of pecking away at the XBMC interface, and best of all it stores your media information safely and with your actual media.

I use Ember Media Manager (EMM-r) http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/emm-r/

 

media companion can be used to scrape and change the data before xbmc scrapes it. it will create the nfo files and download and choose fanart as well.

That’s the one I settled on. Works perfectly.

I set my movie downloads to go to a completed folder and TheRenamer runs silently every 15 minutes and scans for new movies, renaming and movie them to the movies folder. MediaCenterMaster then runs in the background scraping the relevant metadata.

If you really want to format the win7 partition, one way is boot into your ubuntu installation, run GParted, click win7 partition, format it.
ubuntu partition and MBR will be intact.
