Interesting curiosities discovered at the Versailles Palace

Our visit to the Versailles was an unforgettable one for many reasons, but some of the things we learned here were interesting and worthy to be presented here on the blog. It all has to do with the way the life unfolded at a royal palace for the royal couple.

The first thing we learned was that the king and queen were alone, away from other people’s sight, only in bed, when the curtains were drawn. Yes, alone in the bed, not in the bedroom, where sometimes there were different people. And here is the royal bed – not in the original upholstery, as we understood, but in a very similar one. Yes, feathers can be observed;)

Another interesting habit was the way they were eating. As you can see in the photo below, there are some chairs at the dinner table, and some near the wall. At the table sat the royal couple and children – eating!, while on the other chairs were some representatives of nobility. Watching. Yes, I thought it was rather strange – I do get why, we have to take into account the period, the social and economical problems and so on.

The room and decorations are truly impressive – as it is the whole palace (to be presented later on this blog).

    Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due
    to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
