Microsoft Ceases AutoPatcher Project

From Digg and Autopatcher:

„I had a call from Microsoft Legal this morning and they have told me that we are no longer allowed to endorse AutoPatcher on Neowin. Microsoft will only allow updates to be downloaded from its own servers.“

And this is after quietly allowing it to run for 4 years!
За незапознатите, с Аутопачър може да се актуализират софтуерни продукти на MS, включително и операционната система, без да се използва постоянно интернет връзката, офлайн с една дума. а, да и офф-WGA също…. Разбира се (саркастично) от Редмънд отричат да са ги бастисали заради пиратите, ама кой ли им вярва…..

The way of the Net

Last couple of days mark my luck of synchronicity firing up again.

in a summary:

templeofthought.org -the collaboration on philosophy and other thought domains in English –  a colleague of mine handpicked the popularization of his project and not a lot of people know yet about it, so a lot of smart things can be read there.

just awesome – that guy was 4 years ahead of me in high school and he still rocks! especially with the pencils and the humor, trust me 🙂

„Can’t rain all the time“

Едно време това си тананикаше май Гарвана от едноименния филм.

А аз винаги съм се чувствал особено, когато времето се нагрочи да вали  – става ми някак приятно. Миналите дни и седмици във Варна беше същия ефект – след дълги морни дни и нощи на жега, един следобед изведнъж очаквано и предизвестено мръкна, замлъкна, сдрачи се….

А аз се  почувствах пак добре.

Тъмнината навън някак си ме кара де се чувствам уютно и да си желая домашното, кара човек да оцени добрия покрив над главата си, ….. и възможността да е от вярната страна на прозореца.

Дъждът ме кара да се радвам и дишам тази разлика – че в океана навън, има остров скътан, който да осмислям като пристан, „harbor and a refuge“.

Предполагам, че съм повечко домошар, та затова така се чувствам.

Go, Mensa, Climbing, Work and Dance

I wish i could come up with a more suitable title, but the tag-ging style sums it up.

I haven’t written in quite a while and was wondering what to add to it and here is the result 😉

Basically, I kinda found myself  a job, i.e. i still just sit on the PC, but even get paid to browse some pages online (and no, it’s not spam, au contrair) – but this keeps me busy not so much time these few days.

Next, I stepped in for  a colleague in Mensa going abroad and took his hours with the kids, so that means even more Go lessons for them. Some were cheering and some … well, got the chance to shoot and play tennis even more! The question is to keep their minds busy and buzzing, so thanks to the club, we still have options. I gave them some tasks to solve and will see how it turns out – just to keep their hunger for concepts 😉

I am mainly hiding from the scorching heat these days, and sentimentally visiting the old dancing hall… memories… The dancing instructor Elena Kirova (Елена Кирова) is still as good as ever, even smilier than before. I miss the waltzes… when i try to make a swing or two, the energy from within is bursting within me, feels good to be in the harmony of the dance once again, even briefly.

These days there’s a Climbing event in Varna, anyone interested in bouldering should go and see some movies this weekend, as well as try the boulder being constructed in the Maritime Garden behind the Pantheon, below Sports Palace.

And thanks to Aspo, I will bring the kids in for some climbing next weekend.
