Granville Island Public Market

Posted by on Jan 31, 2009 in Vancouver - west | No Comments

Last week I went for a little walk(shopping) on Granville Island. Of course I had my Camera with me so I took a lot of pictures. I played with those pictures a little bit this week and I was playing around with the filters, mostly the warming filter and the deep emerald filter in Photoshop. I like the results, I will use them more often from now on. 🙂

Cheers

Foggy Vancouver From Cypress Mountain

Posted by on Jan 18, 2009 in Vancouver - west | 2 Comments

So Vancouver has been covered by fog for about a week now. Cindia and Alex invited me to go Snowshoeing on Cypress mountain and once we got there we realised that the fog wasn’t in the mountains. As you can see in the pictures Vancouver is totally covered by fog and it was an amazing sight. Good thing I had my camera.

Enjoy 🙂

Finally Some Snow in Vancouver

I walked around downtown, mostly the west end, and took some pictures while the beautiful snow was falling. It is so much better than the rain. Let it Snow let it Snow!!!

Make Firefox for PC and MAC faster

Posted by on Nov 21, 2008 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Here is a nice little trick I picked up. It makes Firefox MUCH faster. try it

1.Type “about:config” into the address bar and hit return. Scroll down and look for the following entries:

network.http.pipelining
network.http.proxy.pipelining
network.http.pipelining.maxrequests

Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

2. Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 16. This means it will make 16 requests at once. (Don’t put more than 16 to respect the servers you will be visiting)

3. Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0”. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

Iona Beach and Chinese Night Market

Posted by on Sep 14, 2008 in Vancouver - west | 4 Comments

This weekend Sasha, Aveline, Amelia and I went for a little walk at long Beach Regional Park(Iona Beach) not too far from the Vancouver international Air Port (YVR). As you can see the sun was beautiful and the walk was just as nice. After a few hours at the park we ended up at the Chinese Night Market in Richmond. Good food but a lot of crappy little things to sell from China like exact copies of Ipod for 29$. LOL

Here are the pictures.

Here are a few pictures from the Pride Parade this weekend.

Seattle

Posted by on Aug 3, 2008 in Seattle | No Comments

So since Kenneth and Brynner are in town we rented a car …. and the last one they had was a big old Lincoln Town car. If this car is lacking seriously in style it sure is comfortable. 🙂

After being stuck at the us border for 3 and a half hours we finally made it on the the other side. Seattle is a beautiful city, very clean and a lot less homless than Vancouver. We arrived Friday night so we just took the evening to walk around and go eat at a local ”trendy” restaurant. Good food and nice crowd.(for some reason that restaurant was serving poutine) Anyways Saturday morning we went back to the fish market, maybe you can see in the picture, this is where they toss the fish from the front to the desk. This is also where they have the first starbucks….. After walking around the fish market we headed off to the Seattle Art Museum, nothing extraordinary to see there so walked all the way back to the space needle. After walking around Seattle we were already back on our way back to Vancouver where we stopped at the Outlet mail. Unfortunately no good deals for me.

Enjoy the pictures 🙂
