I recently started my blog at www.leonardopicado.com/blog with some articles about Web Development.

I had a couple of rough days because I'm sick :-s, hopefully this will go away soon enough and things can get back to anormality.


Take care folks!

Yes it was actually V3 instead of V2, the second version of my portfolio was already online.

Version 3 is coming along really well, a lot of nice things, a very user friendly page is what I am aiming for. The site is optimized for all major browsers and hopefully you'll be nice and leave a comment after is up.

A lot of work is coming over, possibly a deal with an online poker room so that's always good :) and that will help me pay up my BRAAND new VW Crossfox :), lovely car a lot of freelance work helped me buy it, I now only have to pay it haha.

Not a lot more for the moment, remember to check out www.s506.com for all your Java Development needs, these guys are awesome, tell 'em that Leo sent you :).


Nothing more to add, have a good one!

my new site is coming up soon, I already laid it out on photoshop and have a functional version online, I am looking for a cleaner way to present more information, you can take a peak at: leonardopicado.com/v2/mywork/

I am in the beggining of the Get-A-New-Car-Fund-Raising-Marathon, as I have to make almost $4k in 3 months in order to make the down payment for my new car, hopefully things will work out well and I will have a new ride by May :) !

Also, for those of you asking, yes the Critical Mass account closed at avVenta, I got transferred to Publicis Modem as a Web Dev (a DAMN good one) so, everything is cool I met some nice new people and things are looking up.

Take care now and stay pyscho!

I'm back,
And I'm better than ever.
Got a knack,
For makin' things better.
Face facts,
Cuz your opinion don't matter.
This maniac
Is gonna step on whomever.

It's time, get in line, cuz I'm gonna make some changes.
Kickin' ass, cleanin' house of all the babies.
I'm burnin' down the deadwood, burnin down time.
This is all in my way, so get your ass in line.

Up top,
They say that I've lost it.
But talk me down,
and I swear it's gonna cost ya.
Now I'm back,
The boss of you morons.
To never count me out
Is one thing you can count on.

It's time, get in line, cuz I'm gonna make some changes.
Kickin' ass, cleanin' house of all the babies.
I'm burnin' down the deadwood, burnin down time.
This is all in my way, so get your ass in line.
Allright, you know the story with the icons down here, so I won't tell you that those are great bands (the first two) and that you should join those clubs. As some people might realized I am learning the basics of Adobe Illustrator wich gave me some new space to work with, anyways I have uploaded a couple of works with it, I hope you can give me some pointers peeps, see you next time, stay psycho!

[Need more friends with wings, all the angels I know
Put concrete in my veins, I'd always walk home alone
So I became lifeless, just like my telephone

There's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain, but the days don't seem to change

Never played truth or dare, I'd have to check my mirror
To see if I'm still here, my parents had no clue
That I ate all my lunches, alone in the bathroom

There's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain, but the days don't seem to change
There's nothing to lose, my notebook will explain
There's nothing to gain, and I can't fight the pain

Teacher said it's just a phase, when I grow up my children
Will probably do the same, kids just love to tease
Who knew it'd put me under ground, at seventeen

There's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain, but the days don't seem to change
There's nothing to lose, my notebook will explain
There's nothing to gain, and I can't fight the pain
There's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain, but the days don't seem to change
There's nothing to lose, when no one knows your name
There's nothing to gain, and I just died today]

i had to work 7 hours today, i think i worked MAX 4, take one hour off (break + lunch) that would be 5 hours, but i made a couple of favors for some qmt guys, so that took a while, and the qmt guy, quirós, asked me to teach him how to use photoshop :P, so that took me like 2 hours, and i think i will have to help him again :), anyways, work was very cool today i wish it was like that at least ONCE a week, anyways, that's all for now people, take care and a message to malhy, i hope you get better soon baby :), love you, bye peeps...
