Quinca71 Souvenir Repository

  • @Ornorm The former avatar was black & white, some kind of a futuristic thing I guess… maybe a geometric (computer-generated?) design.

    Edit: so a ceiling…🤭

    C'est quoi DDG??? Une succursale de Gogol? 1984 force 10? 😂

    Well done!
    For me, I also thought it was something futuristic designed in 3d... but, you're totally correct.
    Pinakothek der Munchen...

    Pinakothek der Munchen...

    Let's say a futuristic design anyway…

    The avatar was too small to realize it a was a ceiling…

  • @hlehyaric You are a really good observer!
    It's because you mentioned a ceiling that I wanted to dig further... (I was still seeing something futuristico-robotico-3d)
    So, I searched based on the picture and, in one of the results, I saw :

    Searched further based on pinakothek der moderne, etc... to find another version of the picture (other angle, full view, daylight).

    Back to "Hercule Poirot" and his moustache 😉

    You're Belgian, it's far easier for you to investigate 😂.

  • Not sure if this is a kind of 😉 to a very well known Vivaldi team member...
    Would you discover who?

    Spoiler :


  • @hlehyaric Caught me 😁

    Wanted to change it because the more I looked at it, the more it looked like some sort of angry robot face:

    I am not quite satisfied with the new one, so it will probably change again in the coming days...

    @Ornorm Nope. That's Walter White from "Breaking Bad."


  • @nomadic I really liked the previous one.
    And the new new one is beautiful 🌇 😉

  • @Ayespy Do you mean our beloved team member played in a television series?

    Oooops... my knowledge in series is... breaking bad so I didn't make that link to another famous (but less) person.

    @Ornorm Heh, heh. If you're steeped in US culture, you know Breaking Bad and Walter White (the former chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin) even if you never watched a single episode of the series, just as I never did.

  • A small off topic:

    Let me try to clear my memory without having to scramble the internet. Just vigorously scraping my decrepit brain. Georges (?) Simenon would be a Belgian writer, but his main character was a FRENCH police and detective named ........? (Forgotten), always around the Quai D'Orsay in Paris? It is possible that sleep, in which I am on the verge of diving, brings to me, during this period, the name of the detective ...

    M. Hercule Poirot was a fictional character, a Belgian detective, but created and directed by Agatha Christie (an incredible English lady), right? ("Assassinato no Expresso Oriente" - "Murder on the Orient Express" (?) Among (many) others?).

    There was a time when I had a great fascination for both ... the four (lol).

    I accept corrections, insults and mockery, my intention is to get it right, but also to have fun with mistakes, absurdities that I can make, acid and intolerant remarks from mistakes and errors correctors, since the acidity has its unbeatable mood.

  • @JoaBravo Georges Simenon was a Belgian writer, his main character was a French police superintendent Commissaire Maigret.
    Yes, Agatha Christie, a British writer, wrote Poirot stories. Poirot is a Belgian retired policeman.

    As a sidenote, Quai d'Orsay is French Foreign Affairs Ministry (French Palacio Itamaraty). I guess you mean Quai des Orfèvres, Paris police headquarters.

    Thank you, very, very much. For whom used only very old and tired memory, my performance was not bad at all, right?

    Now I remember that the correct reference to Maigret is commissary, and in the excellent Portuguese versions where I've read many and many Maigret's stories, the term was "comissário". I'm not very ortodox neither "connoisseur" about these nomenclatures.

    Special congratulations for "Palácio Itamaraty". Superbe!

    There was nothing different! "Sommeil" constantly solves a lot for me.

    Now, I created a mnemonic form, when I'm awake: put on Google translate Portuguese >>> French - write, in the first, "magro gordo" and add a "t" to the first word in French.
    Note - If I write only "magro", Google hampers to me, only giving me "mince" . Things of translators.

  • @JoaBravo Your knowledge of French culture is quite fascinating 👍.

    Special congratulations for "Palácio Itamaraty". Superbe!

    Obrigado. I've been to Brasilia (I've been to Brasil indeed, years ago). I really like this building and the Ministry of Justice building. The Cathedral is also amazing. I do like modern architecture, so I'm happy on Eixo Monumental. Niemeyer & Costa are great artists. 🇧🇷♥

  • @hlehyaric said in Quinca71 Souvenir Repository:

    ... . 🇧🇷♥ .

    Oh, oh, oh, don't know what to respond and still less how to thank you.

  • @JoaBravo You don't have to. I really enjoyed Brasil and the very friendly Brazilian people.
