Just some small random updates =)

  • What I really like around here is that almost every bureaucratic thingy we have uses computers to the fullest. Every application form is printed out with your data in it, and you only have to sign it. Considering my horrible hand-writing, that is a huge win for me =)
  • Just went for a so-called PuzzleHunt today. Was really fun, but most of the puzzles were heavily English-oriented. And I, as a non-native speaker, couldn't do a thing about it. We managed to solve some stuff, but didn't get the final one. Oh well, hope I'll be here next year for a rematch =)
  • Starbucks rulez. Period =)

Status update, yay!

  • The Independence Day was CRAZY! Somehow I remembered the Airborne's Day — a lot of crazy people shouting crazy stuff and doing crazy shit =) The craziest folks were the officials — several billion dollars went BOOM in the fireworks. But it was totally worth it. When I make myself post the photos, you'll see what I mean by that.
  • Will Evans is coming to MSR. For those of you who's not into CS (I guess that's about everybody who's reading this), he's one of the world's leading researchers in clone detection. Really exited about this opportunity. Oh yeah, baby…
  • I know it's a little bit strange thing to hear from someone who went to MSR on his own accord… But I already hate MSVS and TFS. This whole thing is too damn complex and rigid. Git to the rescue — had to adopt double repo strategy to make development less painful =)
  • I've got over 200 TV channels here. And there's nothing to watch =)

And a question to those who actually read this =)

  • MacBook or Thinkpad? And please elaborate why =)

Till next time!
