Posted on March 22nd, 2008 in Life by andrija

Easter is quite early this year, isn’t it?  According to CBC, the Easter Day is determined as the first Sunday after a full moon after spring equinox.  The earliest it can be is March 22, the latest April 25.  Enjoy the first holiday so far this year, it won’t be this early for another 220 years!

I watched a bunch of episodes of Gundam double-zero which started airing last fall.  Being a Gundam series it has a big budget so it’s a good indication of things to come.  The quality of drawing, CGI and animation is all excellent but the real draw is watching it in HD.  The amount of extra detail, sharpness, clarity and colours are all amazing. 

Arthur C Clarke Has Died

Posted on March 18th, 2008 in Life by andrija

Another master of Science Fiction and a great visionary, Arthur Clarke, has died.  It’ sad but at least, he had a long life – died at ripe old age of 90.  I will probably try to buy a book or two of his to reread (Rendezvous with Rama and the like)- the books I read as a kid are on the other side of the world.  On the other hand, maybe it would be better to re-read them in the language I first read them in anyway…

Thank you AsRock!  I cannot claim to be the reason they came out with the BIOS update – can’t be the only person who sent a ticket to their support – but regardless it’s a good day, or rather a nice addition to a good day.  You can find the update on this page.
