[1.] My absolutely first "blog entry" (20.02.2006)

by tayiper In reply to Web-Notes

Well, this is my absolutely first "blog entry" on/for the <b>Techrepublic</b> site ...<br /><br /><br />

So for starters, let me explain the circumstances a bit. I've first started a "blog" titled <b>Web-Notes @ VOLJAblok</b> in the Slovenian language (it's my "mother language"); here's a link to it: <a href="http://tayiper.blog.volja.net">http://tayiper.blog.volja.net</a>. It's that my hobby is currently related to computing in general (for instance basic programming and scripting, custumizing OS, etc.), so I already have a somehow more or less computing-related blog, please see the <i>events.html</i> pages on my home-site: <a href="http://users.volja.net/tayiper/other/events1.html">http://users.volja.net/tayiper/other/events1.html</a>.<br /><br />But then I've decided to start a "blog" also in the English language. Therefore I've first opened one on the <b>Kuro5hin</b> site: <a href="http://www.kuro5hin.org">http://www.kuro5hin.org</a> (K5's main site), <a href="http://www.kuro5hin.org/user/satyr/diary">http://www.kuro5hin.org/user/satyr/diary</a> (a direct link to my blog), and later also on the <b>Spread Firefox</b> site: <a href="http://www.spreadfirefox.com" target="blank">http://www.spreadfirefox.com</a> (SF's main site), <a href="http://www.spreadfirefox.com/blog/158407">http://www.spreadfirefox.com/blog/158407</a> (a direct link to my blog), which are, as mentioned, both written in English. They are basically the same blog, just two variants of it on two different sites. And this one on the Techrepublic site will be the third one, however, since I've started it two/three days after those two, I will skip the first two entries.<br />

<br /><br />OK, and a few words about me then (this is somehow mandatory); as mentioned, I am currently being obsessed with just about everything related to computing in general, however on the other hand, I also worship the weed/herb (and smoke it, lol), I like going to nature, walking, stalking, sleeping, I love fairy-tales, mystics, music, movies and series (South Park, Dilbert, Futurama, Simpsons and so on), then I enjoy browsing the World Wide Web (mostly news and techy sites, forums etc.), listen to Alex Jones's talk-show about conspiracy theories and stuff. I am unemployed at the moment, but I could say that "avoiding the jobs" has become a sort of hobby of mine. I also like meeting with my friends, occasionally going to rave parties, enjoying my home-town and coast in summer here in Slovenija and various other things.<br /><br /><br />

That's all for today.<br /><br /><br />

Best regards, Ivan Tadej, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Europe<br /><br /><br />

[2.] The first of "normal" blog entries (27.02.2006)

by tayiper In reply to Web-Notes

I've been thinking for a long time about nations worldwide and their right to become/unite (in) an independant state of their own. Namely, why some nations have this self-determination right and the others don't. For example: why will Kosovo with 2 millions of people become an independant state, while Basques in Spain don't have the right to separate themselves from Spain if we are talking about nations "same-in-number-of-poeple", and why for instance Kurds in Iraq (who live in great numbers also in Iran and Turkey) also don't have this right even though there are millions of them ...<br /><br /><br />This time I am not offering a "solution" to this question/problem, like I did for instance in the "<i><b>Idea on relativity of the guilt</b></i>" entry on 12.02.2006 in my Slovenian <b>Web-Notes</b> blog: <a href="http://tayiper.blog.volja.net">http://tayiper.blog.volja.net</a> (i.e. it's written in Slovenian language); I am just giving you this topic to think about it yourselves (and optionally comment on it)<br /><br />And one more blog-related note. This entry is the first one that's synchronized with my Slovenian blog mentioned and linked in the above paragraph.<br /><br /><br />P.S., Oh and yet one more thing; beside the blog that I've opened here on <b>Techrepublic</b>, I've also opened a blog on <b>CastleCops</b> site: <a href="http://castlecops.com">http://castlecops.com</a>; here is a link to my first blog entry: <a href="http://castlecops.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=display&jid=405">http://castlecops.com/modules.php?name=Journal&file=display&jid=405</a><br /><br /><br />Best regards, Ivan Tadej, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Europe<br /><br />

[3.] Notable stuff from the last few days (5.03.2006)

by tayiper In reply to Web-Notes

Well this entry applies partially also for 2.03.2006, 3.03.2006, and also for 4.03.2006. Anyway, I've started reading a book, written by a famous professor at Harvard with full name <b>Samuel P. Huntington</b>, while the book title is "<i><b>The clash of civilizations and the remaking of world order</b></i>".<br /><br />For starters, I've read the book's prologue , then first 30 pages, and then I've checked also few maps, tables etc. I also jumped on the index page on the end of the book and looked for (and found) the references to Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Yugoslavia and have read those particular konkretne bits with great interest.<br /><br /><br />

As second, on the thursday 2.2.2006 I've watched an interesting documentary at <b>Kiberpipa/Cyberpipe</b>: <a href="http://www.kiberpipa.org">http://www.kiberpipa.org</a> about **** Cheney titled "<i><b>The Unauthorized Biography of **** Cheney</b></i>": <a href="http://www.kiberpipa.org/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=567">http://www.kiberpipa.org/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=567</a>. It's the so-called unauthorized biography of a person, who is seen by many as one of the most powerful political/economical figures on the world. The one hour film uncovers the details about his life, his work for the government, his role in the oil company "Halliburton", his connection to both of gulf/Iraqi wars and so on. It wants to show how important influence that Cheney has on the future course of the United States. As I said, a really interesting documentary, which in fact sadly wasn't anything special; I mean that there simply was no "climax", no thesis was given, which authors would try to "confirm" or "develop" during the film.<br /><br />Oh, and one day before, I also watched the now legendary <b>Stanley Kubrick</b>'s film "<i><b>Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb</b></i>": <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Strangelove">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dr._Strangelove</a>, <a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057012">http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057012</a>; in my opinion, it isn't unnecessary to say that it was worth every minute of watching it.<br /><br /><br />

P.S., As the last thing, let me say that it is somehow my "goal" for many years (or better yet, since I remember) to know/learn as much as I can about the world, on which we were born and on which we live. Maybe this was the reason that I was alway good at "Geography" (I've almost always had the best possible score 5); also see here: <a href="http://users.volja.net/tayiper/other/about.html">http://users.volja.net/tayiper/other/about.html</a> for few other details about me. And well, further about scores that I was getting at school: it is true that I was scored as "excellent" or "one-below-excellent" in most of the subjects/classes and most of the years (i.e. the final scoring) and all without any learning at all. I guss it's all about general/universal knowledge.<br /><br /><br />

[4.] Two Tickle tests, that I've taken (16.03.2006)

by tayiper In reply to Web-Notes

Well, it's all about the <b>Tickle</b> site: <a href="http://web.tickle.com">http://web.tickle.com</a> and various tests that this site offers: <a href="http://web.tickle.com/tests">http://web.tickle.com/tests</a>.<br /><br /><br />One test that that I took in the past few days was the so-called "<i><b>ESP</b></i>" test (ESP stands for "extra-sensory perception"): <a href="http://web.tickle.com/tests/esp">http://web.tickle.com/tests/esp</a> (or <a href="http://web.tickle.com/go?q=2024030-3997-3577">http://web.tickle.com/go?q=2024030-3997-3577</a>), and the other was a religion related "<i><b>Religion</b></i>" test, which is supoosed to find out which religion is the most suitable for me: <a href="http://web.tickle.com/tests/religion">http://web.tickle.com/tests/religion</a> (or <a href="http://web.tickle.com/go?q=2024028-3995-3577">http://web.tickle.com/go?q=2024028-3995-3577</a&gt<br /><br /><br />In the first ESP test I got 98 points from 100 for "<i>Remote Viewing</i>" category, which means that I was better than 98 % of all that have taken this particular test. The second best category/area was "<i>Telepathy</i>", the third "<i>Precognition</i>", fourth "<i>Clairvoyance</i>" and as the last one and worst the "<i>Retrocognition</i>". While in the religion related test I more or less got the results that I've expected. Namely, I am most compatible with "<i>Unitarian Universalism</i>" (described as "extremely tolerant"), then "<i>Neo-Paganism</i>", "<i>Buddhism</i>", "<i>Baha'i</i>", "<i>Native American</i>", "<i>Spiritualism</i>", "<i>Hinduism</i>", "<i>Judaism</i>", "<i>Islam</i>" and as the last one and the lest compatible the "<i>Christianity</i>".<br /><br /><br />P.S., Unfortunately you need to register an account (it's completely free though), if you want to take this or any other test.<br /><br /><br />Regards, Ivan Tadej<br />

[6.] My last blog entry; see why below (29.04.2006)

by tayiper In reply to Web-Notes

<br />As mentioned above in the entry's title, this is the very last "blog entry" posted on this blog ...<br /><br /><br />It's simply because this particular blog hasn't get much traffic so far (here' the main-link to it: <a href="http://techrepublic.com.com/5247-6257-0.html">http://techrepublic.com.com/5247-6257-0.html</a>), while additionally, I've discovered lately that visitors who don't have an account on the <b>TechRepublic</b> site, can read it at all.<br /><br /><br />Anyway, here is a link to my site's "<i>intro.html</i>" page: <a href="http://users.volja.net/tayiper/intro.html">http://users.volja.net/tayiper/intro.html</a>, where links to all my other blogs are nicely listed below the "Missions Network" script (it's a grey-coloured vertical banner); it's the section labeled <i>NOTABLE</i> under the main-page's table-heading.<br /><br /><br />Regards, Ivan Tadej<br /><br /><br />
