I’ve watched this movie the other night and must say I’m impressed. Long time haven’t seen picture which would keep my nerves tight all the time. There are no famous actors in it, so it wouldn’t be blockbuster. But it’s really worth seeing if you like such movies. By such I mean slashers, but with a decent story which lets you think and get deeper into movie. This was the case with Saw, as for me, but the first one, as next parts where rather getting down.
I’m using Grooveshark as my Internet radio service now. I found it way more useful than Last.fm or Pandora, and it works in Europe without US VPN. You can even share your tracks as a links on Facebook and other sites. But this is not the point of this post. Today, for the first time since I’ve started using it, Grooveshark is experiencing downtime. But they’re doing it with smile. Check out the screenshot from their website!
If you don’t or want to refresh your memories then you should visit this site. You can play with Windows 3.1 in your browser. It’s really cool and reminds about the past, when computer hard disk was smaller than amount of RAM in modern machines.
Do you know that you can use any suffix with your GMail address as long as it’s preceded with “+” sign? So if your address is firstname.lastname@example.org, you can tell people to send emails to email@example.com and it would still reach your mailbox. Now you can create several filters using “To:” field and your mails would be in order. When you’ll be signing to some online service, for instance a forum, you can use johnsmith+forum@gmail.
Most famous Urban Legend for Mac computers is that there aren’t viruses for Mac OS. Wrong! There is at least one and it’s pretty cool actually:) But seriously there are viruses for Mac, maybe not so common as for Windows systems, but still. So don’t bet on luck and install anti virus program.
I was really prejudiced to this movie. I love Sherlock Holmes and his adventures, but after watching the trailer (find it below) I’ve had a feeling that they would make a stupid action movie from it. Fortunately I was wrong. Well, it’s not the old Sherlock from times when it was about sharp mind rather than strong hand to solve the mystery. But it’s really entertaining. If you will set your attitude to watch it as combination of Die Hard, some comedy and criminal, then you will not be disappointed.
As I’ve spent quite a time searching for Greek alphabet on Internet which would be usable to my needs (so just list of letter which I can copy to for instance Excel spreadsheet). All the hits directed me to such list, but letters were graphics not normal chars, so no copy as text:( I’ve finally gave up, took the list from Wikipedia (which was a bit messy table), work a bit with regular expressions, and voila:) I have my list of all Greek letters as a text, with tabulators added to be easy copied to separate cells in Excel.
I was waiting to watch this movie and when I’ve finally did, I’m a little disappointed. I wanted to give it 5⁄10, but I can’t as even though it not completely was what I’ve expected, still I’ve spent nice time with this picture. Maybe it was because of the trailer (find it below) which has this feel of mystery, thrill and surprise. And movie doesn’t have it, at all. I can’t say it’s bad, but it doesn’t have this deep, a catch which would make you really feel it.
