How to Receive Flickr comments on your pictures by e-mail

Since Flickr they doen't seem to want to enable receiving comments on your photos by e-mail, I had to find a way:

1) Get your Comments RSS or Atom Feed Adress at the Recent Activity Page; it's something big like (this is the feed for the comments on my pictures).

2) Create an account at FeedBlitz;

3) Go to New Feed;

4) In 'Feed or Blog URL', enter your feed address, leave the other fields blank;

5) You're done! You are automatically added as a subscriber to this feed and you will receive comments on your pictures once per day.

Hope this helps! :)

Man, why did Darren Hayes have to end Savage Garden and entered a sucky solo career? I love the band.

I especially love this song because it sums up everything I believe in in a few simple sentences:

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love 'til you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

(Affirmation - Savage Garden)


Well so much for my 'relief' week.

My Atopic Dermatitis is back again, theoretically the shot I applied myself lasts for 21 days, but I knew (don't ask me how, I just knew) that my eczema, severe as it is, would only be held back 1 week, tops.

Now I'm not sooo bad but I might get to that stage again soon. Hell, even had to refuse an invite to go to the cinema with my friends. Last week I went with three girls from College (well now they're doctors like me) and saw the famous/infamous Brokeback Mountain. I loved it, I've had my share of alternative parties so that I don't feel uncomfy about seeing two guys kissing each other (though the idea of me doing it makes me thing 'ewwww'). I loved the movie because it transmitted the idea of love, pure love between two people in a way only my second favourite movie of all time, The English Patient, did, IMHO. My favourite movie of all time is Vanilla Sky, but for more personal (self identification) reasons, not for romance.

Anyway, hope I manage to get through it all over again. I know I will, I just hope I handle it the best I can.

For anyone interested in Atopic Dermatitis / Eczema in terms of its effects on people's quality of life, I have posted a great article about it here. Don't worry, you can understand it, just skip the medical yada yada part ;)


Azn Sensazns

Who needs the Backstreet Boys when you got da fantastic Azn Sensazns?


Collected Quotes from Albert Einstein

I received this by e-mail. Dunno if they're all from ol' Albie, but some of them are very enlightening.

* "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."
* "Imagination is more important than knowledge."
* "Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love."
* "I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details."
* "The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax."
* "Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one."
* "The only real valuable thing is intuition."
* "A person starts to live when he can live outside himself."
* "I am convinced that He (God) does not play dice."
* "God is subtle but he is not malicious."
* "Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character."
* "I never think of the future. It comes soon enough."
* "The eternal mystery of the world is its comprehensibility."
* "Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing."
* "Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind."
* "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."
* "Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds."
* "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
* "Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen."
* "Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one's living at it."
* "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources."
* "The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education."
* "God does not care about our mathematical difficulties. He integrates empirically."
* "The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking."
* "Technological progress is like an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal."
* "Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding."
* "The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible."
* "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."
* "Education is what remains after one has forgotten everything he learned in school."
* "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing."
* "Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater."
* "Equations are more important to me, because politics is for the present, but an equation is something for eternity."
* "If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut."
* "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe."
* "As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain, as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
* "Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of Truth and Knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."
* "I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
* "In order to form an immaculate member of a flock of sheep one must, above all, be a sheep."
* "The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead."
* "Too many of us look upon Americans as dollar chasers. This is a cruel libel, even if it is reiterated thoughtlessly by the Americans themselves."
* "Heroism on command, senseless violence, and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism -- how passionately I hate them!"
* "No, this trick won't work...How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?"
* "My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind."
* "Yes, we have to divide up our time like that, between our politics and our equations. But to me our equations are far more important, for politics are only a matter of present concern. A mathematical equation stands forever."
* "The release of atom power has changed everything except our way of thinking...the solution to this problem lies in the heart of mankind. If only I had known, I should have become a watchmaker."
* "Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence."
* "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed."
* "A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death."
* "The further the spiritual evolution of mankind advances, the more certain it seems to me that the path to genuine religiosity does not lie through the fear of life, and the fear of death, and blind faith, but through striving after rational knowledge."
* "Now he has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion."
* "You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."
* "One had to cram all this stuff into one's mind for the examinations, whether one liked it or not. This coercion had such a deterring effect on me that, after I had passed the final examination, I found the consideration of any scientific problems distasteful to me for an entire year."
* " of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought."
* "He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
* "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
* "Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts." (Sign hanging in Einstein's office at Princeton)

Nobody's Home - (half) acoustic by Avril Lavigne

I love this song, and she may be a poser but I like her voice. A lot, by the way.

And I'd hit her ;)


Extreme Days.

I used a shot of a potent corticoid (which dermatologists hate in atopic patients like me, but what do they know about how much an eczema patient suffers? I did not, neither as a doctor myself neither when my Atopic Dermatitis was already a *major* annoyance in my life, and it wasn't 10% as bad as it has been now) so I could give myself a break from this stupid disease. I was going crazy scratching myself all the time. And I lost my girlfriend too - because she could no longer stand my suffering and not beng able to go out with me and stuff. But she helped me out so much and I will be always grateful for that.

So my face is all clean and beautiful today ;) - Much better than before:

Extreme Days 2 - Atopic Dermatitis Eczema

Extreme Days - Atopic Dermatitis Eczema

But I know this will last for a few days only (and possibly come back worse, a common side effect of using this medication), so what to do in the meantime?

- Relax, relax, relax;
- Watch a lot of soccer games (Yay! My team, São Paulo, the current world champion, won yesterday!);
- Get outta this freakin' home in the weekend;
- Stop telling myself that I should be actively seeking ways to make money on the net (because it's the only way I can try nowadays) and give myself a break and blog for fun (It's much better to blog for fun in blogs I like to write on like freewaremac than thinking about Adsense and all those things - I may be new 'round here, but I have Brazilian Portuguese blogs since 2000).

I'd like my Atopic Dermatitis / Eczema Forums to take off... I don't understand Goooooogle. How can that page have a PR of 4 when nobody but me posted there?

Go figure.

'Extreme ways are back again
Extreme places I didn't know
I broke everything new again
Everything that I'd owned
I threw it out the windows, came along
Extreme ways I know move apart
The colors of my sea
Perfect color me

Extreme ways that that help me
Help me out at night
Extreme places I had gone
But never seen any light
Dirty basements, dirty noise
Dirty places coming through
Extreme worlds alone
Did you ever like it planned

I would stand in line for this
There's always room in life for this

Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Then it fell apart, it fell apart
Oh baby, oh baby
Like it always does, always does

Extreme songs that told me
They helped me down every night
I didn't have much to say
I didn't get above the light
I closed my eyes and closed myself
And closed my world and never opened
Up to anything
That could get me along

I had to close down everything
I had to close down my mind
Too many things to cover me
Too much can make me blind
I've seen so much in so many places
So many heartaches, so many faces
So many dirty things
You couldn't believe

I would stand in line for this
It's always good in life for this'

(Moby - Extreme Ways)
