Photos from Prague

Friday, March 28th, 2008

Two weekends ago, I went on a trip to Prague to visit some friends who were also visiting the city. Last weekend, I hopped over to Paris to visit a friend there, and to see the city for the first time.

I don’t have many of the pictures posted, but I did manage to upload four to Flickr today during lunchtime. These are from Prague. I’ll upload more soon, including a few from Paris too. (:

Squiggles and dots

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Dear “lazyweb“,

How do I type all those funny European squiggles and dots on the mere 26-letter US keyboard on my Lenovo X61 laptop in Linux? Searching Google and copy-pasting found characters is getting old pretty quickly. The correct way to type these characters is not obvious.

If it involves special scripts and downloading configuration files, I am not interested. How would one of those normal, non-geek user do this? I’d like to know the proper way.

(For “bonus points”, typing a Euro sign would be great too.)

Thanks in advance,
