Jack Bauer Found In St Petersburg In His New Hiding (Season 07?!)


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on June 29th, 2007 in Humor, Personal

Yesterday I got back from my trip to St Petersburg, Russia, where I drank lots of vodka (and absinthe), ate blinkchiks and borsch, and found Jack Bauer. Apparently he is now posing as one of the Russian emperors. He was last seen hanging out in Pushkin village…

Don't believe me? Will you believe the photos?

Google Maps New Feature: Visual Route Dragging


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on June 29th, 2007 in Awesomeness, Technology

Click this sample map and then try dragging the blue path around to create via points. You can also do the same to the start and end points. Now I feel that the Google maps are truly 21st century. Live traffic (maybe live traffic cams soon?), street view, multiple destination, dragging and zooming with the mouse… can this thing get any better?

This announcement is also currently one of the top diggs

The day is finally here. Blizzard just officially announced Starcraft 2 at an official Korean event! As someone put it on digg, if you didn't know that you can simultaneously cream and shit your pants, you will now. Here are the first videos that surfaced on the web.

Cinematic trailer:

The actual gameplay demo narrated by Blizzard. IMO, this is the best and the most well put together demo I've ever seen:

And some more gameplay videos:

Comcast Unleashes PowerBoost On Uploads (woot!!111one)


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on May 14th, 2007 in Beer Planet

According to some news reports, Comcast is increasing upload speeds for its 6 and 8 mbps cable customers (like me). Today I was extremely pleasantly surprised to see that my upload speed had doubled. Considering that the site is hosted on the same Comcast connection, it's probably good news for everyone, as it will load faster. Here's the result of a speed test I ran today:

Edit: Ah, I was too hasty to get exited. Apparently the power boost only works on the first 5-10 MB of the transfer, after which it cuts back down to the regular speed. I am quite sure it'll still make the site faster as most pages and files are less than 5 MB….

11 Year Old Girl Kills 2 Home Invaders


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on May 2nd, 2007 in Awesomeness

Updated: May 4th, 2007

Edit: Aww crap, it turned out to be a fake. Here it is anyway, just for kicks.

Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez 23 and Enrico Garza 26, probably believed they would easily overpower a home alone 11 year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two story home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things, they were in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was nine. Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez was the first to get up to the second

Edit: Ha! Google now returns 1.6mil results (when I first put the key up, it was only 800). Also, almost immediately after this post was indexed by google, the server started experiencing DoS attacks from various IPs in US and Germany. Your dirty tactics didn't work, bastards, the key is all over the place now.

Caveman + Facebook = ?


Posted by Artem Russakovskii on April 3rd, 2007 in Humor

<!--enpts-->caveman_1.jpg<!--enpte-->How funny are cavemen? Normally, not very funny, but as we all know, thanks go Geico, they can be quite hilarious. What about a caveman's website? Linked from Facebook. The outcome is quite witty: http://www.cavemanscrib.com/. Check it out.

 

P.S. I found an easter-egg-like item in the magazine on the table.

P.P.S. Can you find the infamous Roast Duck with Mango Salsa? …
