Estava há 30 segundos a ver uma factura do McDonalds, e reparei que referem a parte do troco como “mudar”. Não é difícil lá chegar: o inglês “change” pode ser traduzido para português como “mudar” ou “troco”.

power supply unit
My computer is looking more like Frankenstein’s Monster each passing day. Thanks to the power shortage last night, my computer’s power supply unit died. It served well for several years, but it’s time was due. Fortunately, I had another one lying around from an old computer and I quickly replaced it, but now I can’t close the computer’s top and since I already have one side open, it’s a wonderful vision of cables and parts inside. I should get a transparent case. That way I could see the dust piling up.

Free Wi-Fi in Lisbon

Lisbon from St. George Castle

Finally, we have free Wi-Fi in Lisbon! The City Hall decided to partner with three ISP (Broadnet, Zapp and PT Wi-Fi), and now everyone can acess the Internet on these locations. This initiative will last until June of 2007. There’s also a RSS channel to follow further news on this subject (in portuguese).
On a more curious note, the initiative’s homepage is licenced under a Creative Commons Licence 2.5. Way to go!
