Owl City – Lucid Dream

Soon a new Album of Owl city is going to run : cinematic. I like this song. I can hear it in loop 10 time.

We know that Adam Young could not sleep well. What is why he start with I am a light sleeper. But he is a heavy dreamer. Are you a dreamer ?

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

 

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away, to some other place
I’m suddenly there, way up in the air
Where passenger trains catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath, of beautiful dreams
My heartache it seems, so terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream

Such is the path of a dreamer
I find my way by moonlight
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away, to some other place
I’m suddenly there, way up in the air
Where passenger trains catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath, of beautiful dreams
My heartache it seems, so terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream
Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer

The longest bridge of Europe and Russia open

After 3 years of work, The bridge between Russia and Crimean has been opened. It is the longest bridge in Europe with 19 km.

This “project of the century” completes what Mr Putin has framed as Russia’s historic reunification with Crimea four years after it was seized from Ukraine in the wake of a pro-Western revolution there.

The bridge may offer some relief for residents of the peninsula, who largely supported annexation but have suffered high prices for food and goods after deliveries from Ukraine were stopped. Sanctions have cut off trade with the rest of the world.

Before the commissioning of the bridge in the transport blockade imposed by Ukraine, the main routes to and from the Crimea were Kerch-Taman ferry line and air transport. However, the capacity of the ferry line is limited, which led to long delays on crossing during the peak of the tourist season, as well as during storms in the Kerch Strait

New step for this blog

Making a break in the walk

Writing a blog is like writing a journey. It is like a travel. You discover new cities, new regions or new scenaries. You can stop and look where you was, the path you walk and look where you have to go.

When you stop you can be encouraged or discouraged. You can see : wow I was there and I walk this path. You can look where you want to go.

Now let’s look behind. This blog is the second version. It has been started in 2017· Read the first post

Read the goal of this blog in 2017

Changing the host will help me to write more often. Now I can open back office without waiting long seconds and sometimes having error page.  This is a new step.

Now I will write again the goal of this blog in 2018. It is globaly the same with tiny change.

Goals in 2018

  • Write in english. Yes this is still the main target. This has not changed. I know that I write with mistake but I will try to write more and more with less and less mistake.
  • Publish to the world. I think about that goal. Because Is it still the case ? Internet is changing. Today blog is not fashionable anymore. People are behind wall with their applications on their smartphone. The dream to publish something and 1000 people read it will maybe never targeted. I should reconsider this goal. I would say I keep it but its importance is lower.
  • Promoting things that is valuable. Yes !!! that is still ok. I can dream. I will change the world. Maybe not. Probably not. Certainly not. But maybe I could touch someone. I could make someone thinking. What is valuable. Real value is inside and invisible. Joy, peace, harmony. Given something, teaching something, learning something.

Content

  • Photos. I will put more photos. Thank you for your goods words about the photos I publish. All photos are taken by myself or maybe 99%. I just want to share emotions via just a photos. I am just lucky to live in a photogenic part of the world (Switzerland) and it is really easy to take a camera and … clic. Today with smartphone with have always a camera in our pocket.
  • Switzerland I like to share information about Switzerland. Not only positive information but also critical one. It is not objective but subjective. I am not a tourist information, I am not making marketing for Switzerland. And I don’t receive anything for writing nice information for promoting something. I am free to write how I feel. This blog is not popular enough to have paid article. I am writing it for free.
  • Music Yes I will continue to share music I like but maybe a little less I would like. Music is so important in my life. I am still an eternal teenager. Music touch my soul.
  • Thinkings  Hard to create a category thinking. Thinking will be in all categories. This is the goal of this blog. Writing thought. Writing reflexion. I hope that will lead to inspiration. Sometimes, I am missing inspiration to write. I need inspiration to gives you inspiration.
  • Technical things tutorial, technical article, computing will be still here. Why just because I want to share what I found. Because digital life is part of my live and my work. I don’t know if you notice it but the world is changing. Digital is all our life today. I will share you free and open source software and phylosophy. But I am a moderate librist. I will talk about tools I use. I will write about ActivityPub (New social network who is now federated), Zot and Hubzilla with nomadic identity and few other tools and tutorial
  • My life Why not sharing more of my life. You can choose to share personal photos on facebook or instagram.  You think it is private but actually it is not really. Publishing publicly is clear. All the world can read hear and see. Talking about my life helps me to see reality clear. Sometimes things are complicated.

 

Conclusion. Normaly we should have one target and one audience. You have photo blog, political blog or technical blog. This one is a kind of mixture. I know this is not good but I am like this. Maybe in the future I will make one blog for photography, one other for IT and one other for changing the world. But now in 2018 it is like that. I hope that something will be usefull for someome. If I make mistake tell me. Please comment and share.

How to move a multisite wordpress to a single side wordpress ?

This blog needs to be moved. He is presently hosted in an american webhost Dreamhost. This host is nice. You can have lot of web space. But sometimes workpress needs more power or the delay between Europe and USA suck.

So I decided to move it to OVH.

The limit of my OVHh host is the database. I only have one database and it is limited to 200Mega. I can put many domains so if you use many wordpress on one database prefix is needed. As I installed wordress with default prefix how to process.

Before doing the move work. I should know how to do it.

 

1. rename the tables manualy.

 

Rename table wp_commentmeta to new_commentmeta;
Rename table wp_comments to new_comments;
Rename table wp_links to wplabo_links;
Rename table wp_options to new_options;
Rename table wp_postmeta to new_postmeta;
Rename table wp_posts to new_posts;
Rename table wp_termmeta to new_termmeta;
Rename table wp_terms to new_terms;
Rename table wp_term_relationships to new_term_relationships;
Rename table wp_term_taxonomy to new_term_taxonomy;
Rename table wp_usermeta to new_usermeta;
Rename table wp_users to new_users;

2. manual change in table wp_options and wp_usermata

search in wp_option the value user_roles in the field options_name

SELECT *  FROM `kris_options` WHERE `option_name` LIKE '%user_roles%'
and change the prefix like new_user_roles
SELECT * FROM `kris_usermeta` WHERE `meta_key` LIKE ‘%wp_%’
Change all wp_ by your new prefix new_

3. copy the sources localy

By ftp copy all sources in a local directory.

4. copy the sources to the new site

5. Change the wp_config

define('DB_NAME', '...');

/** MySQL database username */
define('DB_USER', '...');

/** MySQL database password */
define('DB_PASSWORD', '...');

/** MySQL hostname */
define('DB_HOST', '...');

...

$table_prefix = 'new_';

After transfering the new wp_config by ftp. Your new site should be working on your new host.

Swiss median monthly salary is CHF6,500

In Switzerland half of the employee earn more than 6500 Fr and half less.

The gross salary of CHF6,502 is what a full-time employee in Switzerland would earn on the assumption that half of his or her colleagues earn more, and the other half earn less. That represents a CHF313 pay rise relative to 2014, when the last statistical office survey was conducted.

However, this median value masks significant disparities between different economic sectors and the various regions of the country.

Remuneration levels are significantly higher than the median salary in high value-added activities such as the pharmaceutical industry (CHF9,835) or financial services (CHF9,742). At the bottom of the pay scale are retail trade (CHF4,798), hotels and restaurants (CHF4,337), and personal services (CHF4,076).

To claim a larger fortune at the end of the month, it would appear better to live in canton Zurich (CHF6,869) than in Ticino (CHF5,563). But this doesn’t factor in cost of living: much higher, for example, on Zurich’s “Gold Coast” than south of the Alps.

Morges

 

Morges is situated in the western part of Switzerland between Lausanne and Geneva. The city was build by Louis de Savoie in 1286.

The castle in the south of the town square was built with a square floor plan and four round corner towers. It resembles the castle of Yverdon, which may have served as a model for Morges Castle.

 

On of the beautiful place to walk is the lake promenade. You can see the Mont Blanc

The city’s annual Tulip Festival celebrates the return of spring with 100,000 tulips in beds remarkable for their colour, in the 30,000m2 of the Parc de l’Indépendance.

 

 

Owl City Fireflies

In 2009 Adam Young launch the project Owl City.  Adam Young described the song as “a little song about bugs and not being able to fall asleep at night. The song is built around a “bleepy” synthline and includes lyrics about insomnia, fireflies and summer.

I like this kind of music and melody because it remind me the melody and the style of music I like in my childhood. Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Kraft Werk was pioneer of electronic music. It is like today electronic music still exists. I prefer with kind melody and colorfull music. For example I discovered recently Family Force 5 with This is my Year  This kind of music could be run in the end of 70s and today it is fashionable again.

 

 

[Verse 1]
You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude but I would just stand and stare

[Hook]
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

[Verse 2]
‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread

[Hook]
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

 

Russia blocks Telegram

A demonstration in Moscow against the Russian government’s effort to block the messaging app Telegram quickly morphed on Monday into a protest against President Vladimir V. Putin, with thousands of participants chanting against the Kremlin’s increasingly restrictive bent.

The key demand of the rally, with the hashtag #DigitalResistance, was that the Russian internet remain free from government censorship.

We Don’t Talk Anymore

We Don’t Talk Anymore
We don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
I just heard you found the one you’ve been looking
You’ve been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn’t me
‘Cause even after all this time I still wonder
Why I can’t move on
Just the way you did so easily
Don’t wanna know
What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight
If he’s holding onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
I just hope you’re lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you’re gone
Every now and then I think you
Might want me to come show up at your door
But I’m just too afraid that I’ll be wrong
Don’t wanna know
If you’re looking into her eyes
If she’s holding onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
What was all of it for? (We don’t, we don’t)
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
Like we used to do
Don’t wanna know
What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight
If he’s giving it to you just right
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
What was all of it for? (We don’t, we don’t)
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t talk anymore, oh, oh
(What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight)
(If he’s holding onto you so tight)
The way I did before
We don’t talk anymore, oh, woah
(Should’ve known your love was a game)
(Now I can’t get you out of my brain)
Ooh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore
