A few days ago, I caved in and installed iOS7 on my iPad 3. Since I don't use the iPad for anything mission-critical, this was my chance to try out the new OS. Since tweeting is too short, I'm noting my impressions here.
Colors & Icons
Yeah, a lot more pastel colors, although changing the backgroud can make a big difference. The space/Milky Way/star wallpaper that comes with iOS7 looks great on...Read more »
This year was my first year diving head-first into the Fantasia Festival. I've been to a few screenings in the past, but this time, I had the pleasure to view 14 of a combination of fantasy, japanese, anime, horror, sci-fi movies!
There's something different about FantasiaFest compared to a number of other movie festivals. This isn't silent movie-watching, but rather like watching a bunch of...Read more »
Perhaps a tradition now? ^^; Here's a quick round up of some of my highlights for 2012
- On January 7th, 2012, I married my beautiful wife, Yukiko Hashizume in Canada. For sure the highlight of 2012 for me
- Don't remember much beyond that. We happily lived together in Longueuil in our appartment. The rest was mostly work and paperwork.
I present you the next chapter in the natural evolution of my services and add-ons: Zenbu Studio, a new home for the Zenbu module and friends.
I've been hosting my add-ons and documentation on nicolasbottari.com for what... three years now? But now that some of them have grown up it's time to move forward and give them a proper home, and make nicolasbottari.com a more personal...Read more »

This service includes commenting moderation and sharing tools (to Facebook, Twitter, etc), which should cover more than what is available through the native EE commenting system.
I have been using Low Spam to get rid of unwanted comments, but there were still a few...Read more »
Here's a good reminder for geeks of all trades not to sound too boring when talking about geeky subjects (in Japanese, quick explanation follows):
This commercial is for the Japan Registry Services, a group promoting the .jp domain among other activities. The video starts simply, with two men on a bus, one of which asks his buddy what his company (JPRS) does. The JPRS guy starts...Read more »
This might not be of interest to many, but thought I'd write down some highlights of my year 2011. Maybe for posterity, maybe because I feel a lot of stuff happened this year.
- Decided to spend Christmas and New Year's in Japan, which is the second time I have ever done so (for Christmas). Went to Senso-ji in Inage, Chiba, and had a much better New Years than last time I was there...
It's been more or less a month since the last release of Zenbu, and boy have I been busy adding new features!
I'll let the changelog speak for itself since there are too many new features to discuss here. One interesting feature for developers is my Zenbu fieldtype framework, which enables custom field developers to add support for their add-on in Zenbu by adding a few Zenbu-specific...Read more »
