22 Mar 2003 :: Why Romania again? Dunno. When the problems began I wanted to leave for Kharkov very much, for I missed it. At the other had, there was a desire to continue the adventures, because sitting on the same place all the time isn't too good either... [ more.. ]

11 Oct 2002 :: Well, spent quite a lot of time describing the trip to Brasov.. But it's not about me being lazy or something, as I might appear at first. The winds of change are to blame. The winds began to blow as soon as I thought about moving to another place... [ more.. ]

[ 26th Mar 2002 ] motor 3.2.2 | 1 comments | leave a comment

Nice March weather with sleet, cold and rain encouraged me to release a new version of motor, a console IDE for UNIX. Changes I planned for this release were done quite a long ago, but it couldn't be done earlier because of "bairams" I was regulary invited to every evening during the last week. "Bairam" in another Romanian word for party, with obvious Turkish origin. But this Saturday at last was a day without any plans. Just a free day. Finally.

Several days ago I made another discovery. Obviously, in the land of wine makers wine shouldn't cost a lot. I knew that before and a price of 1.5-2$ for a bottle was ok for me. But it appeared to be not the final limit when we entered into a supermarket here with a colleague. He was going to go home and wanted to pick something brand Romanian to bring as a gift. So we stopped at shelves with wines. It looked beatiful. A lot of sorts, brands, years of distillation, etc.. There was quite a choice. But suddenly my attention was attracted by one liter bottles, covered with metal corks like beer. Half-dry wine, price - 5.400 lei. About 0.15$ converted into American roubles. Probably something similar to our "Gold autumn" made of tomatoes remained from the last year. In several days we were in the same shop with several Romanian and French friends, and they didn't believe me. So we went inside to check the price. Unfortunatelly, we didn't make a bet that there is a wine that can cost less than mineral water.
