The Mac-Pro fetish

18 February, 2008

Having and using an Apple Mac computer is one of the top objects of desire on my wish-list. I simply love the feeling, the stability, the looks of the interface and their sleek design. Compared to a pc, a Mac is light years ahead! It’s not the i-pod, i-tunes connectivity and all the gimmicks that go with it, it’s the fact that a Mac is a reliable machine and a real pleasure to work with, pure QUALITY, period! And for the amount of time I’m spending in front of a computer screen, I demand that quality.

Fairly recently Apple has released a new model in their Pro series. And that machine is a real monster! On the outside, the design haven’t changed much, but inside things just got hotter. First of all the powerplant of this workstation is 8 powerplants really! Using 2 X Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors up to 3.2GHz you can vaguely begin to imagine the capabilities of this machine! Larger powerplant means that you also need a larger storeroom to support the production volume πŸ™‚ So the new MacPro can have RAM up to a whopping 32GB!!! It comes with only 2GB as a retail standard, but don’t tell me you’re not intrigued with such capacity to order a machine with more RAM! Read the rest of this entry »


Snow in Athens

17 February, 2008

Well chaps! It has happened again! It is snowing! Pouring white cool flakes in the middle of the dirty old crappy city!

I love snow! Basically when snowing one can’t do much, the roads get really slippery and very dodgy to drive (unless you own a bulldozer that is!) so all you can do is stay in and enjoy the view outside!

Last time that we had such a heavy snowfall in Athens was in 2002, then again we had some snow last year (or was it the year before that?) but not so much; it is snowing since yesterday (Saturday) and it has stopped later on today’s afternoon, correct according to the national forecast.

Still, I think I won’t be able to make it to work tomorrow πŸ™‚

UPDATE: It is now 03:30, Monday morning and it is snowing again! (and if you’re wondering what I’m doing up so late in the night then read this)

Wooohoooo! As Sinatra sung once: “Let it snow, let it snow let it snow!


Clint’s shooting gallery weekend

17 February, 2008

With such a snowstorm outside and a rough cold I wasn’t up to do many things this weekend. Not to mention that the fever from my cold wouldn’t allow me to concentrate on doing any work, or anything else. So I decided to take it easy and relax πŸ™‚

Having a good DVD collection (which most of the movies I haven’t found the time to watch yet) I dug up some discs with good ol’ Clint Eastwood movies. I wasn’t in the mood for anything else. Clint is one of my favorite actors, I like two things about him: He doesn’t talk too much, he gets easily pissed off and when he does I love that famous pissed off grin he does! He usually plays characters that they have a shitty life and disregard any rules or authority, just to do their business right. His movies are really nice to watch, cause they are simple and easy going on the plot, yet not totally stupid “Rambo styled”.

So I’ve watched Dirty Harry II -Magnum Force, Hearbreak Ridge, Firefox, Space Cowboys and The Rookie. Read the rest of this entry »


Don’t give me that valentine crap!!!…

15 February, 2008

I always have been wondering what is the use of a special Love day in our calendar.

Love (in it’s romantic version) is not a switch on/switch off feeling, it happens during some elongated periods of time. So what my point really is that you can show love and respect to your partner everyday, any day of the year, not just on the 14th of February.

In my book, the 14th of February is another marketing invention (one of the most ancient ones). Invented by florists, the chocolate /candy industry, restaurant owners and the whole entertainment industry. You show your love by taking your partner to a cosy restaurant, or buying them, cards, chocolates, flowers or whatever, the business owners get rich, simple as that. And with the aid of the mass media they create such an obsession on us that we MUST make a present (that’s the whole point of that day) to our partner.

Have you ever thought why Valentine’s day is on February and not on say, May for instance, or any other Spring month (as Spring is considered as a fertility/romantic season). February is generally a flat month in sales, it is just a little after Christmas, so V-Day gives a little boost in sales and therefore income till Spring, where people go out more and shop more πŸ™‚


My little 106’s birthday

14 February, 2008

Well today is officially the birthday of my little Peugeot 106 Rallye (pictured above)! Bought brand new in February of 2003, my little pug hits the age of 4 years old! When I say birthday I mean the day I got it in my hands from the dealer, not the day of manufacturing.

You might be unfamiliar with the name “Rallye” as a model Read the rest of this entry »


Returning from it’s Vanishing Point

11 February, 2008

After 35 years and following all the modern retro styled trends, Dodge decides to awaken the legend once more and return her back from her Vanishing Point!

Don’t tell me that you haven’t watched “Vanishing Point”! Well if you haven’t seen this movie, shame on you and stop reading this post right now!! Vanishing Point is pure cult! The legendary 1971 movie is about a character named Kowalski and his bet to deliver a brand new car from Colorado to San Francisco in less than 15 hours! And that brand new car is the legendary 1970 Dodge Challenger 440 Magnum (which is not supercharged! πŸ™‚ ). A truly classic American muscle car! A true legend!

 

The return of the iconic Dodge Challenger brings what pony car fanatics crave: ground shaking performance, unmistakable design cues reminiscent of the original Challenger, world-class ride and handling characteristics and benchmark braking. On top of that it features a wide variety of modern amenities and technology designed to delight a new generation of driving enthusiasts and the old muscle nutter fans alike!
