Bike Love

This week I've had motorbikes on the brain! I can't stop thinking about having one. More than anything I'd want an aprilia rs125 as pictured above. Its a fantastic handling bike, does 0-100kph in 6.7 seconds and will keep on going all the way to 190kph. Of course, I'll never take it above 60 kph....

On a serious note, I really do fancy a change from cars. The picture above is the 2006/7 model of RS125. I can't afford one of these but perhaps I can manage a 2002 or something similar. One things for sure, if I do manage to scrape together the pennies for a two wheeled pocket rocket, I'm going to have to prove to those that I love I can use it properly and safely. My mother still calls them "DonorCycles"

Well I can't afford one anyway but I'm trying to come up with a way to get one!

Cool Desktop

My desktop screenshot, running enlightenment and a number of cool modules to monitor CPU, Temp, Battery, Wifi, Weather and a cool screen shot module.

The applications shown are the "About Enlightenment" screen in the top right. Also shown are emixer and eedit. Which are part of the small e-app-dev project.

My first Enlightenment Application

Simple text editor, incredibly simple, it wont even open or close files!

It will resize,scale,scroll and correctly present exit dialogs though!

Not bad for an afternoons work and learning a new TK.

Enlightenment Rocks

Enlightenment is a desktop shell for people who like good software standards.

Some friends and I are starting to develop applications based on the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries. To that end there is a multi user blog set up at

A wiki will be created if and when the blog cannot communicate effectively.
