Every fan of movies knows already that sequels are usually bad. There are exceptions, but they’re just confirming the rule. There is similar situation when it comes to TV series. Some series are good for only one season. Below are some examples. Dexter. When I’ve watched first episode I was completely stunned. There was a series which had just everything I expect from good TV. Great and original story, good acting, proper level of “believability”.
I’ve read The Wisdom of Psychopaths: What Saints, Spies, and Serial Killers Can Teach Us About Success. It appeared as an advert on Scientific American and after reading a sample I was really excited and decided to give it a try. So I’ve bought it, read it, and am undecided. I simply can’t tell if it’s good or not. From one side we have great writing, very interesting examples (not only from real life, but also pop culture), and the subject which is extraordinary to say the least.
I’m a horror movies, and books, fan for like forever. I’ve liked them even when I was small kid. I was scared like hell, but I’ve still wanted to watch them as they’ve had this special magnetism. Then I’ve started to read books and of course fell in love with Stephen King’s writing. This guy could write manual to VCR and I would still read that. After some time I’ve become immune to the fear presented in picture or by letters in the book.
As much as I accept him as an actor, he’s quite alright in few movies, I simply can’t stand Daniel Craig as a Bond. He’s not acceptable for me from the beginning. He just doesn’t match my expectations as to this character. And now I have one more point to support my reluctance. He looks like SPECTRE assassin from From Russia With Love:) Take a look if you don’t believe me.
I’ve seen several movies recently where makers obviously had no idea how to end them, but The Call is next generation. We have quite nice story. There is emergency line operator played by Halle Berry who once makes mistake during the call and as consequence young girl dies. After such shock she can’t handle calls anymore, so she resolves to teaching. And then one day killer reappears. Of course Halle is again involved and tries to save the girl from the psychopath.
If you’re receiving error 0x8024402c in Windows Update then simply turn off any proxy you have set up in Internet Explorer. On the Internet you’ll find many advices, but it’s as simple as that. Unless you have some other network problems, but you would notice them rather quickly, it’s for sure not working proxy. It really sucks that this browser sets settings for the entire system not only for itself.
Well, according to the commercial above it is. But I tend to disagree. Sure there is a lot of stupid people there. And probably they’re the target of this platform as they’re spending the most of time on it. But common. Some individuals, including myself, are using it to simply stay in touch with friends and distant family, especially if you’re living abroad. And not everybody is addicted. I can live without Facebook for whatever period.
I’ve bought Office 365 Small Business Premium license as soon as it was possible, so on March 16th. And I simply love it. Let me just mention that transfer was really smooth. I haven’t done a thing. Then I’ve just bought new license, switched it for my account and cancelled my old plan. So easy. I had to reconfigure nothing. Well, I’ve uninstalled Office 2013 from my computer and installed it from scratch as I was using preview version of Home Suite, so wasn’t sure if transfer would be possible and clean.
My story with Apple started late with first iPhone. I was visiting States for the second time and wasn’t planning to buy this phone. I’ve went to Apple Store to buy one for my colleague who wanted it badly. After I’ve seen it in action I’ve immediately bought one for me. And as there was purchase limit back then I wasn’t able to get one for my pal after all. I’m still feeling a bit sorry about that.
I value Bruce Schneier as security expert. I love his blog. I like that he’s not fast to make opinion and analyzes everything thoroughly. I’ve enjoyed his book Secrets and Lies: Digital Security in a Networked World. And as he advertised his last book, Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust that Society Needs to Thrive, a lot, I’ve decided to give it a try. It was easier decision to me as it’s available on Safari Books Online.
