Countries of the world

At least according to Apple…

Countries of the world according to Apple

Bring on the inferiority complex for more than half of the planet.

Twit... Beeeep

I just deleted my Twitter account. It was getting on my nerves.

Today is a day for celebration

Paypal is finally available in Romania.

While this is great news for all those wannabe eBay users, those who wanted a Pro account on Flickr and many others, there’s a down side:

PayPal accounts opened in this country or region currently cannot withdraw funds. We regret any inconvenience this may cause you.</p>

So, at least for the moment, to receive money I’ll stick with Moneybookers.

Yes, I'm alive

Mostly busy. When I’m not, “I’m going places”© with Ioana.

Even more speeeeeed!

DU Meter showing the 4 Mbps goodness I haven’t really gotten used to the 1 Mbps goodness available all day and would you look at that! Yesterday after a friend’s hint I reset my modem and when it rebooted there I was, riding my shiny new 4 (FOUR!) Mbps cable connection. Wow! The funny thing is that honestly, I have no idea what to do with it. 1 megabit per second was more than enough for my needs, even if they used to call me Mr. Downloader back in the day when 64 kbps was all the (exorbitantly expensive) rage and I was getting on everyone’s nerves clogging up the tubes… And now they didn’t just double that 1 Mbps. Nope, they went ahead and quadrupled it. What can I say? Many thanks for the free lunch.
