World cup

Just seen the Sweden-Paraguay game (after seeing the second half of the england game). Both games were crap and the commentators on BBC and RTE acknowledged that and bashed both “top” teams. However, both winners (Sweden and England) will most likely play further and advance. I can see everyone praising England in a week or […]

Steaua, the babies

My fav team crashed out of the UEFA cup in style: leading with 2-0 (3-0 on aggregate), they managed to concede 4 goals in 60 minutes. It’s disappointing, but not as bad as when they sold the game to PSG and lost 5-0 with a penalty in the first minute. Hope Middlesborough will win the […]

Several parameters of outside interest are monitored: Sound: If the sound works out of the box or if I had something done to […]

New laptop – episode 1

Well, finally I’ve got myself a new laptop: a Sony SZ1XP. Great machine overall, but with several bad points. One should ponder if these points are really bad… First, the good points: Great screen. And I mean this. I’ve looked upon a large number of screens in my life, and this is the best LCD […]

Laptop

Well, I’ve got finally fixated on a laptop. To make my life miserable, I’ve picked up a top of the range sony vaio (the SZ1XP/C to be precise). It’s supposed to have a life of 5-7 hours which is good for me when travelling to Milan. It’s also a Sony, which means that lots of […]

Concert

On Sunday I’ve been to a concert of Anouar Brahem Trio. Himself on oud (aka some sor of a tunisian/arab guitar), piano and accordion. Brilliant. The soloes were impressive and the guys showed their skills. Personally I was blown away by the accordion guy who played a vew minutes’ solo with lots of techniques. However, […]
