В подготовке к Амстердаму

Самое лучшее путешествие, путешествие без плана. Когда нету плана – нету ненужных надежд и разочарования, что во время плана было лучше.

Без плана тяжко. Есть материальные ограничения, временные ограничения, поэтому план.

Перелопачивая Lonely Planet, wikitravel.org и различные другие ресурсы, нашел замечательную шутку про Амстердам,

There’s an old Amsterdam joke; if to a large group of bicycles going by, you yell out, “Hey, that’s my bike!” about five people will jump off “their” bikes and start running.

Внутренний голос мне подсказывает, что на великах по Амстердаму мы ездить не будем. Машину будем ставить в Park&Ride и передвигаться на общественном транспорте.

Rotate Clock 180 which is showing Indian time, change the digits and whoila !!! London time is now.

P.S. Ok, it works only for quarters, 0 15 30 45 minutes.

However, there supposed to be one bug ! Shall we report it to Apple ?

When you want to connect to remote computer manually,

The difference between Google and Yahoo.

Cheap flight tickets in Latvia.

There is one flight company in Latvia. <br/>If you will choose this company for traveling, and you will need to purchase tickets directly from their site (not via some third party companies). <br/> Before purchasing tickets for round-trip, look for one-way ticket price (logically, that return ticket should be cheaper, not in Latvia, ok probably this does not work for discount airlines). <br/>I have saved 150 Ls(300$), when purchased two one-way tickets instead of return ticket. <br/>
