No deja se ser curioso ver una puerta tapiada.
Photo taken at the Monastery of San Isidoro del Campo in Santiponce,
It's curious to see a walled door.
Wherever I look, I see infinete empty billboards.
A clear sign of the crisis.
Español: Allá donde mire, se ven innumerables vallas publicitarias vacías.
Un signo más de la crisis.

Bureaucracy, one of my Enemies:
“Bureaucracy is the art of making the possible impossible”

“Bureaucracy is a giant mechanism operated by pygmies.”
Honore de Balzac
“In any bureaucracy, paper work increases as you spend more and more time reporting on the less and less you are doing”
“If there is a way to delay in important decision, the good bureaucracy, public or private, will find it”
“Bureaucracy, the rule of no one, has become the modern form of despotism”

Eva de Thomas Brock / Eve by Thomas Brock
The most delicatest sculpture that I have ever seen.
Eve by Thomas Brock
Victoria&Albert Museum, London.
"I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity,
and her flaming self-respect, and it's these things
I'd believe in even if the whole world indulged in
wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be...
I love her and that's the beginning of everything."
-- F. Scott Fitzgerald

Feeling Blur (Images)
Feeling Blur: Playing with my Nikon D40 and Photoshop:
Imágenes Trujillo (Cáceres), España
Presentación de algunas imágenes tomadas en una pequeña escapada que hicimos a Trujillo y el Parque Nacional de Monfragë.
In English: A set of photographs taken in a small trip to Trujillo and Monfragüe National Park.
Básicamente es una selección automática de 30 imágenes de calidad de la comunidad fotográfica Flickr. Cada 24 horas la aplicación recorre un conjunto de grupos y analiza alrededor de 400 imágenes para, en base a unos parámetros, hacer la selección que se muestra en la página a modo de pase de diapositivas (también se pueden dejar comentarios).
El objetivo de la página es muy sencillo: poder conectarse a un lugar en el que pasar 5 minutos viendo un conjunto de imágenes interesantes y/o bonitas, y descubrir también a alguna gente que está haciendo muy buenos trabajos fotográficos.

The Blue Lagoon - El Lago Azul
I'm here with my last theme, a song that talks about childhood, games, adventures and, why not?, looove.
All of this was in 'The Blue Lagoon' film, that was so fascinating for me (and with a amazing sound track composed by Basil Poledouris).
Enjoy the theme!: http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6973598
En este caso es una canción sencilla, que habla de la niñez, los juegos, la aventura, y por qué no, también el amor. Por eso le he puesto el nombre de esa película que tan grato sabor me dejó 'El lago azul' y cuya banda sonora (de Basil Poledouris) adoro.

Open Skies - New Theme (nuevo tema)
Last summer, my wife and me went to the concert that Loreena gifted to her fans in Huelva, Spain.
I know Loreena's music from a long time ago, but seing her in live, and earing her music was a really amazing experience.
I have composed an small piece of music, expressing the feelings that that outdoor concert woke up in me, 'Open Skies' is the title of the song:
El Link.... el que aparece más arriba.
De nuevo EWQL Siver Orchestra Edition (o como se llame), StormDrum, Kontakt2, Massive, y un buen número de loops.

Google is going to kill Firefox!
This is incredible, Google is going to kill Firefox. Yes, I really think that Google Chrome is going to grow at the cost of Firefox, that is doing an amazing paper competing with Microsoft.
I understand that Google is working for the long term, but perhaps some fussion with Firefox would be better for both.
In my humble opinion, Microsoft has a so strong position that to erode it is going to take a lot of time, and sincerely, IE is a good product.

The Stars Are Calling Me. New Theme
Hi I have just released a new theme: The Stars Are Calling Me.
Music heavily electronic with a spatial touch.
Here is: The Stars Are Calling Me.
As always... free download.
Esta vez me he decantado por algo bastante diferente respecto a mi anterior tema (atlántico), y he querido componer una pieza con ciertas reminiscencias espaciales y de electrónica-clásica (aunque no secuencial).

Reflections Opentoro: Objects, Databases, and the OpenToro's Philosophy'.(Previously published in http://opentoro.sourceforge.net/reflections.html )
In these days, there has been a notable discussion about ORM, RDBMS and ODBMS, with interesting contributions like Ted Neward’s ‘The Vietnam of Computer Science’ and ‘Avoiding the Quagmire’, Gabin’s reply ‘In defense of the RDBMS’, and the interesting discussions in the TheServerSide.net (and this) and InfoQ forums.
The next OpenToro version (the 5.0) has an interesting new feature: java objects, like previously database tables, can be easily published in the web. So we have wanted to make a reflection about these questions too.
OpenToro is a Web Database Publisher, a tool that allows us developing database-driven web applications (with advanced AJAX technology) in an agile and automatic way. Using OpenToro simply means to forget coding countless SQLs and JSPs every time we want to implement a web application with database access.
When we say ‘publishing’ a database in the web, we want to say generating a web interface that let people listing database tables, visualizing records, and generating forms for inserting, modifying and deleting records.
An OpenToro application is just a way to perform manipulations on the data in a relational database in a direct way (through the web).
You can see OpenToro too like a framework for rapid development of web applications.
OpenToro is not a panacea, and is not suitable for all application scenarios.
Usually you are going to use OpenToro in the Views of an application, using its easy tag lib and its XML files.
OpenToro and java Objects.
Like we have said, OpenToro next release (5.0 version, planned for November 2007) has an interesting new feature: java objects, like previously database tables, can be easily published in the web.
Until now OpenToro have not supported a very object oriented programming style for web applications, supporting more a declarative programming style (OpenToro is a complex metadata-reflective architecture piece of software). The reason is very simple: if you want to publish in the web some database tables, and made some CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update and Delete), why do you need to build a complex application?
It has nonsense using an ORM, a lot of classes for the data model, and a big architecture for doing so simple things. An excerpt from Martin Fowler:
Costs of a domain model: The primary cost is the awkwardness of mapping to a database, which typically results in a whole layer of O/R mapping. This is worthwhile if you use the powerful OO techniques to organize complex logic.
But there are a lot of problems that are naturally developed using a full object oriented data model. LikeMartin Fowler says:
At its worst business logic can be very complex. Rules and logic describe many different cases and slants of behaviour, and it's this complexity that objects were designed to work with. A Domain Model creates a web of interconnected objects, where each object represents some meaningful individual.
OpenToro wants to do the next step, supporting other data container, like java objects, for web publication.
In these days, there has been a notable discussion about ORM, RDBMS, and ODBMS.
Our philosophy is the next: keep the things simple.
We have identified al least 3 development scenarios:
- You don’t have complex logic; rather, you almost don’t have any business logic. Solution: Don’t use any ORM, don’t build a domain model, perform manipulations on the data (in a relational database, of course) in a direct way. This is very simple using XML files for declarative specification of database tables. OpenToro will do the rest for you. Application example: a web site that contains news, events, and some documentation.
- You have some business logic. The recommendation is simple, you must to develop a small domain model, only with the entities that have logic, the rest can be in the database. OpenToro 5.0 implements mechanisms that let your classes to reference database records (as if they were objects too). Still you don’t need an ORM, OpenToro has a set of utilities that let you ‘move’ data between classes and records.
- You have complex logic. Ok, let’s open way to the heavy artillery. Anyhow we recommend using OpenToro 5.0 for publishing objects’ data in the web.
