Removing a dead pixel on a Macbook Pro

I just discovered a dead pixel on my brand-new MBPro. After a google search and finding this site :, i decided to just slightly press the screen with my finger and guess what… the dead pixel is fixed!

There’s a technician in every one of us ;-) (Either that, or it was just some dust sitting on my screen…)

The life of a weird little creature…

I just found a series of pictures of a weird ‘creature’ posing in different situations. I can’t explain, but I feel he’s already part of my life :-)

Take a look at to see what I mean…

iPod not responding

Well, my dear old iPod stopped responding again… After plugging it into the laptop, nothing happens and the iPod refuses to do anything. So I looked up this problem and found a little trick for resetting the iPod : hold the menu button and the center button at the same time, until the apple logo apears. Maybe not very spectacular but very handy!

My first post…

Welcome to my first post ! I’ve been thinking about creating a blog for a while now, as I spend more and more time reading other peoples blogs (way too much free time…). The ingredients of this blog will be a mix of :

  • web development ideas: mainly Java and PHP, but anything else will do.
  • photography: I love taking pictures, although I’m just an amature.
  • music: I started making music when I was about 7 years old, but somehow I don’t have much time left for this… But you’ll hear some of my good old favorites.
  • anything not in the categories above: if it’s on my mind, I’ll write about it.
