Muse – Drones

The Drones is totally enjoyable. The sound returned to be similar to their 2000’s albums and moved away from their failure albums ‘The 2nd Law’ and ‘The Resistance’. Drones is fully packed with tooth-breaking songs, I’m sure more than 50% will become hits. It’s been a while since I enjoyed so many songs from a single disk. […]

The Martian

The book is not for everyone, but science and engineering nerds would surely enjoy it. It tells the story of a botanist Mark Watney being stranded on mars and his journey to escape (or not :) the planet. He is doing all the weird crazy science and duct tape engineering to make his escape possible, fighting the […]

Русский национальный фолк

Обажаю korpiklaani за то, что в их фолк-метале есть какой-то национальный инструмент, который одновременно задаёт мелодию и предает ей неповторимый колорит Скандинавии, природы, смиренной грусти. Будто эту песню играли много поколений назад и в таком же неизменном виде будут играть ещё много поколений. В русской культуре такой же национальный и одновременно грустный колорит задаёт гармонь.

Staff oversharing

Same goal, shared job among everyone. Team spirit and dedication. Possibly one lead/manager. Shared teams are worse. Shared teams introduce additional complications […]

Всю жизнь я считал, что зубочистка по-английски пишется “toothpike”, на счет чего имел смелые этимологические фантазии о том, как находчивые англичане взяли pike (копье), которое применили для борьбы с пищей в зубах, что рождало богатые образы. Оказалось, что зубочиска пишется “toothpick”, где pick уже не копье, а ковырялка. Ковырялка! Копье разжалавоно в ковырялку! Этимологическое разочарование века.

Instagram is a perfect showcase of one’s BORING REALITY

Do not chain L3 devices

Never ever chain-connect L3 devices. In situation when you need to add additional device to a segment which exists between two routers only you will have to redo wiring and reconnect everything to switch fabric.       All L3 interfaces of all segments should be connected to a switch fabric directly. The only valid reason […]

Enabling LifeSize Icon 600 to work with LifeSize cloud

1. There are 7 apparently secret IP addresses for gateways. They are not shared publicly and are provided by your vendor. Outbound connections must be allowed. 2. Only outbound flows to the Internet have to be remitted. Inbound are not necessary, despite listed in the official documentation 3. Apart of 7 gateway hosts, additional outbound connections should be […]

Не верь клятве наркомана, слезам шлюхи, улыбке прокурора и пропаганде рекрутера.
