Last three years with software

Long time ago I decided to blog about my technology struggles – mostly with software but also with consumer devices. Don’t know why it happened on Christmas Eve though. Two years later I repeated the format. And here we are three years after that. So the next post can be expected in four years, I… Continue reading Last three years with software

From HTC Wildfly to Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

I bought my first smartphone (HTC Wildfire) in Dec 2010 and my second (Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini) in Jan 2015. So it’s roughly 4 years difference. The latter is a tad bigger (didn’t want too big anyway), display is much better (height from 320px to 800px), is significantly faster (HTC Wildfire was a sloth really… Continue reading From HTC Wildfly to Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini

My last two years with technology

While generally I love our age for the… Continue reading My last two years with technology

And I decided to report about just a few technology problems I met… Continue reading Not so Christmas technology whining

Supertramp, Paris and the others

Recently I’ve received my first package from Amazon.

I have Paris live bought like ten years ago or so.… Continue reading Supertramp, Paris and the others

24 highs and lows

Good I read my concerns about the third season of 24 – because otherwise I would elaborate on many things I can now just briefly confirm. Yes – again – lots of dead, smart people doing stupid things, hardly believable reasons for their actions. Just to name a few. It’s the day of the crisis… Continue reading 24 highs and lows

Galaxy Online? Phew!

After my Travian experience I wanted to develop similar type of web-browser based game. I chose sci-fi star wars setting but before I started to code it I wanted to know that there is still space for it. So I googled for some time and I found more games with similar idea. However none of… Continue reading Galaxy Online? Phew!
