I don’t think these fit here, but here you go!

My early new year’s resolution…

… is 3840×2160 😉 . I  used to have 3 monitors side by side and then decided that it really wasn’t comfortable despite the love I had for the real estate they offered.   After researching a bit on 4K a few months ago, I decided that they were too expensive to seriously consider; a thought that crossed my mind…

My new place

I’m using this title metaphorically, since I just changed the theme here and the subtitle. I am a person that loves change, but at the same time hate change for change’s sake. So, that’s that. Congratulations to the theme’s creator – excellent job.  

Holy Tonewood

I have a problem with unsubstantiated claims that are based on “personal experience”, belief or statements “simple and/or obvious knowledge” which are in turn non-provable in the lab. This especially applies to musicians who seem to find all kinds of differences and using “experience” in order to convince everyone else about what’s the proper way to do things.

Οι Αυθαίρετοι

Πριν από 23-24 χρόνια όταν ξεκίνησε η ιδιωτική τηλεόραση στην Ελλάδα, ένα από τα πρώτα ιδιωτικά κανάλια πρόβαλλε μία ανατρεπτική για τα δεδομένα τηλεοπτική σειρά. Τους Αυθαίρετους. Οι Αυθαίρετοι λοιπόν ήταν μια σειρά με μια πολύ απλή θεματολογία: Είναι δύο οικογένειες, του Αντρέα Χατζηγιώργη και του Κώστα Χατζηγιώργη (ουδεμία συγγένεια, αλλά όχι τυχαία συνωνυμία) οι οποίοι ζούνε στην ίδια πολυκατοικία…

New beginnings (again)

I’ve been with Interworks for almost a year now. It was an interesting ride, with its ups and downs, and people who were usually pleasant to work with (apart from some specific exceptions) and achieve results. I had a good time thanks to most of the people I was working with, but it’s time to end.

I got a new job

I had a stupid joke here. It’s gone because it was stupid. Right.   Starting Monday I’ll be working as a software developer & engineer at Interworks and I’m very excited about it! I’m posting this here as a disclaimer of sorts, to clarify that this blog, its contents and my own projects are not affiliated nor endorsed by my…

A few simple things about Religion and Human Rights.

When I was 14 or so, I had an epiphany: “Everything I know about religion sounds so incredibly stupid”. It progressively got worse: I started questioning everything. Suddenly, I was demanding proof about things I was taking for granted in the past, ending up in heated arguments with the majority of my environment. The first real argument about Christianity’s teachings…

Προσέξτε τι διαβάζετε!

Μια ενδιαφέρουσα παρατήρηση που έχω κάνει τον τελευταίο καιρό, είναι ότι το ελληνικό internet και κυρίως η ελληνική blog σκήνη τελεί υπό κατάληψη από εθνικιστικά στοιχεία. Είναι χαρακτηριστική μάλιστα η επιρροή τους, που ένα θέμα το οποίο ανεβαίνει σε ένα από αυτά τα sites, αυτόματα ανακυκλώνεται, σχεδόν αναλλοίωτο από τα υπόλοιπα. Σήμερα επιβεβαίωσα ότι δεν ασχολούνται μόνο με την προβολή…

South Park’s sleazy message

So, here goes: I am a South Park fan. The spiritual child of Matt Stone & Trey Parker, (almost) always manages to crack me up; at least when the toilet humour is kept to a minimum. I find myself disagreeing with some of the messages its creators try to shove in our heads however.   Most people believe that the…
