Hello everyone, here i have a little announcement: i will be away for a vacation roughly two weeks from now on. Well, technically, my plane is booked on April 21st and I’ll be back in 11 days, but i expect being too busy packing and unpacking to post anything consistent. So i beg your pardon on that :) Had a little too much pressure IRL, need a little rest while my graduation exams haven’t started, so I’m going to Egypt and hope to have some diving there.

I am myself of those Win7 haters who’d happily strangle Win7 GUI’s developers, you see, and the only thing that lured me off my old WinXP was 8GB of RAM and Intel Core i7-2600. So I am in the beginning of a painful process of adjusting to a new OS, and Its Ribbon-infested UI makes me want to puke on Microsoft shoes. For the first time in my whole adult life i had a though like “maybe i should have had a Mac notebook instead?” so if there will be no more posts, know that i am gone stark raving mad.
