Q: Do you know how to keep a stupid man in suspense?
A: We will call you as soon as possible and tell you how!

I wanted to buy a Macbook Pro 13 (late 2011) from Flanco. Went to their site and placed an order online. As the product was not in their stocks I received an email saying that I will be contacted as soon as possible by their sales consultants... There are four days since. I feel stupid.

Movies this weekend

Ronal the Barbarian

Quite a funny animation. It mocks up the barbarian stereotypes in a story placed somewhere between "Lord of the Rings" and "Discworld".

Les Infideles

The best French comedy in the last decade. A must see.



ING has refreshed its Home'Bank application. It looks fresher and cleaner. Also Adevarul and Vodafone have nicer and faster web interfaces

Betting on wrong horses

I have been betting on the wrong voices on "Vocea Romaniei". As always the choices were dubious and had nothing to do neither with the voice nor with the looks of the contestants. It is even worse than last year...


This year I really have no choice for voting. None of the candidates represents any of my political ideas. Besides - all of them are involved in suspect business or are political migrants.


As the winter season approached the center is again crowded with wooden barracks in which they sell the same thing over and over again. The same kitsch Christmas products, roasted meat, sausages and wine - in front of the cathedral although during a lent period.


Meh. I am just tired.
