Last House on the left

Original Wes Craven’s movie from 1972¬†was awesome. Cruel as hell, but it had “it”. As I can see from this trailer new version would be some creepy story for teenagers as most of new horrors unfortunately. Mama always said “Don’t rate book when seeing only cover”, so I hope that I’m wrong. But something is telling me that I’m not:(

Problem with VPN connection in (not IE8) Win7

Because of many reasons I’m using VPN connection when surfing the Web. It’s very good feature for me that I can setup IE7 to be able to connect to my VPN provider before connecting to any web server. But it’s not working good in Internet Explorer 8. When I’ve changed settings to dial default connection and trying to navigate to some page usual dialog about making such connection appears, but:

Free hosting

Maybe somebody have noticed that I’ve started using Twitter. First I’ve felt like I’m getting mad or something. What is it for? I’ve been asking myself. It’s complete waste of time and it’s stupid thing, good for schoolgirls or lonely people. But now I can see that there are some advantages of this. Yesterday I’ve gained one follower, which is probably a bot, but it doesn’t matter. I’ve wanted to get some info about who is so interested in rubbish I’m writing.

Is your employer snooping on you?

As some wise guy called Ziembor said “most of nowadays blogs are just re-blogging other blogs or news sites” (Ziembor has his own blog at ziembor.pl, unfortunately only in Polish). I hope mine is not like that, but truly last time there are many interesting stories which I want to comment. Is it bad, decide. Again slashdot.com has published interesting article. This time about how future employers are snooping network searching for info about candidate.

Wired "war" against netbooks continues

Another day and another article against netbooks on wired.com. This time it’s much better than last time, but still. I believe expectations of the author are too big. You’ll never have fool comfort with such small device, and I would definitively not even think of writing a book on netbook. However I believe it’s quite cool to serf the net with it, if your websites have more pictures than text. Other accusation is that keyboard is cramped.

Netbooks May Offer Hackers Private Data Gateway

This is the title of an article from wired.com, which happens to be my favorite magazine. But this particular article is trash for me. Mainly it’s about how netbooks (like Asus EEE PC) are vulnerable for network attacks, because they’re have no security built-in. Author says that most of such computers have no antivirus installed (but how many notebooks or PCs have?) or users are simply turning them off (antivirus apps), because netbooks have too low performance to handle normal apps and antivirus at the same time (what a bullshit).

Why to work in IT

This funny image was attached to article on Polish portal. Article was about the thing that most of people from IT work less than 6 hours a day. This data was taken from a survey runned by sladhdot.com. Well, I can only say that it’s a pity that it doesn’t work that way in localization industry (which I’m in). Some people have more luck I guess.
