Avatar movieIn short, I liked it. Yes – it was a bit long, yes – it was naive, yes – there were no strategy in the final battle. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the movie and recommend anyone to watch it in a movie theater on a big screen.

Electric shaver

Monday, January 18th, 2010

Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic ShaverMe and my wife decided to make a present to both of us by buying an electric shaver for me (who does not like presents like that?). Shaving every day with a regular razor irritates my skin, which is not fun. Not shaving every day irritates my wife’s skin, even less fun. My only experience with electric shavers was when I used a cheap kind, which did not do a good job. That’s why we decided to invest in an expensive shaver. Enter Braun Series 7- 790cc Pulsonic Shaver. The first impression was… very good. We will see how my skin reacts to it after the adjustment period of a few weeks.

RescueTime vs ManicTime vs Wakoopa

Monday, January 18th, 2010

After running ManicTime I found the application was not meeting my requirements exactly. The application does not reuse tags automatically, this means that I need manually assign tags every an application was used. On the other hand, the statistics pane allows me to create specific groups of applications that are used to show time, which essentially gives me the result I want. The downside is that there is no information about what documents were open by the applications. If I use the same applications for different projects, then I can not differentiate between those projects. On the good side, the program author responded very quickly to my request and promised that the new release will have some updates that will be useful for me.
