Games in 2015

I played several games on my PC machine in 2015, but I finished these games on the list. Not all were great games.

Min nye computer

Den 11. december 2015 modtog jeg min computer eller rettere dele, som jeg samlede til en computer. Jeg bestilte Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz Quadcore, bundkortet B85, 8GB DDR3, kabinettet Fractal Design Define R5 og strømforsyningen Corsair CX 600M. Samtidigt tilføjede jeg mit grafikkort ATI Radeon HD6950.

All my cell phones

I remember how I was very reluctant to get a cellular phone in the beginning of this millennium. I simply did not like the idea of having one in my pocket. I know, although I was only in my 20’s, I had some anti-modern ideas at the time. The reason I got one was I moved away from my parents in the beginning of 2001, and of course I wanted to be able to talk to them when I or they wanted to. For the last fourteen years I owned ten (10) cellular phones, so let’s register them for posterity.

This War of Mine

I am looking forward playing PC game This War of Mine. It is about (Bosnian?) war, but you don’t get to play a soldier, but a refugee, trying to survive. It looks great. A whole different perspective than we are used to in games. Reminds me somewhat of Deadlight.

Touch

Hana je dugo vremena pitala svoje roditelje može li dobiti Nintendo DSI kao poklon. S obzirom da je bila mala, roditelji joj nisu htjeli kupiti tu vrlo popularnu konzolu koju ima skoro svako dansko djete. Uostalom, prije godinu dana su joj kupili odlični Wii na kojem je provela mnogo sati u zabavi. Međutim, Hana je i dalje navaljivala i govorila da bi voljela da ima Nintendo. Njen otac se, kao odgovoran i savjestan roditelj, "bacio" na posao, pa je istražio koliko je dobar taj Nintendo DS i da li ima kakva bolja alternativa. I kako to obično biva, shvatio je da je Nintendo solidna mašinica, ali da ima dosta bolji aparat za razbibrigu. Objasnio je kćerki jake i slabije strane oba aparata, a Hana je nakon kraćeg razmišljanja rekla da hoće alternativu. I konačno prije nekoliko dana je dobila novi Ipod Touch. Dječijoj radosti nije bilo kraja.

Kindle 3

Danas sam primio Amazonov eletronski čitač knjiga Kindle 3, i to nakon svega četiri dana – svaka čast, Amazon! Također moram napisati da je ovo Amrin poklon jer ona zna koliko volim čitati knjige, kao i da imam vrlo veliki broj knjiga u elektronskom formatu.

Minecraft

Mora da sam do prije dvije sedmice živio na Jupiterovom mjesecu Europi, s obzirom da do tada nisam čuo za fenomen na internetu – Minecraft. Srećom, moj dobri prijatelj mi je ukazao na postojanje ove fenomenalno dobre igrice koja me je natjerala da u potpunosti ignorišem druge igre.

Nokia 5800

Efter opfordring fra en af mine gode venner, har jeg valgt at skrive min erfaringer med mobiltelefonen Nokia 5800. Jeg har haft den i hænderne i præcis 7 dage og føler at jeg er i stand at bedømme dens egenskaber og funktioner. Jeg skal lige tilføje at jeg hverken er en professional gadgetanmelder eller har overordentlig forstand på mobilteknologi (nørd). Godt, så kan vi gå i gang!

Generacija klik

Kao korisnik interneta, evo ima bogami decenija i po, navikao sam da često čitam tekstove na internetu na vrlo brz, efikasan i, iznad svega, površan način. Moje se ponašanje tokom surfanja po ogromnom okeanu informacija vjerovatno uopšte ne razlikuje od većine korisnika interneta. Malo ko ima strpljenja pročitati određeni članak do kraja, sve se svodi na brzo pregledavanje i često preskakanje čitavih paragrafa. Uglavnom, može se zaključiti da što više koristimo internet, sve više se moramo truditi kako bi zadržali koncentraciju prilikom čitanja dužeg teksta. Nicholas Carr u svome odličnom članku "Is Google making us stupid?" čak tvrdi da to važi za bilo koju vrstu literature, bilo da se radi o knjizi, novinskom članku ili tekstu na web stranici.

Regarding the website

Once again, I am thinking about changing my web host. Although I don’t have constant problems with my website, there were a couple cardinal situations for the past twelve months. Last January my web hosting company suffered a major system breakdown which resulted in breakdown of my website and loss of all of my data. I lost all files on my website, but luckily I was able to recover the Mysql database.

Breakdown

This website was down for the last 3 days since its server suffered a major breakdown. I was able to recover my database in cooperation with my hosting company, Gigahost. I was really afraid I wouldn’t be able to recover the lost data, but fortunately I was wrong. I still wait for the hosting company recovering all of my files. There are still some photos and other files missing, which hopefully will be recovered soon. One more lesson learned on the subject of (not) taking a proper backup.

Apologize for the inconvenience!

Ubuntu again

And so I try with Ubuntu once again. This time I’ve got the Feisty Fawn or 7.04, as I prefer to call it. Installation went smoothly, it took only 10–15 minutes on my Dell Inspiron 6400. I had only 1024×760 resolution, so I googled a little and installed something called 915resolution, so that I could watch my desktop at 1280×800. It worked, so almost everything was just as it should be. Ubuntu recognized my wireless card, so it took me just a couple of seconds to hook up onto my wireless connection. This is the great improvement, since in previous versions it was a pain in the ass to make the wireless card work. I need Java for various reasons, and it also worked after I installed it. Flash, too.
