Today I was refusing to wake up reasoning that as today being Sunday for some reason. Probably had too much of chips yesterday.
Slept through most of the day. Then had lots of beer with Lev. Part of it was due to Lev not drinking beer, but drinking something stronger.
The problem I’ve had for a week with my workstation at work was properly troubleshooted today. It turned out that it was exactly as I suggested from the very beginning. The problem was with CPU fan. And no, it was working. It’s just that the plastic lock that was keeping the fan glued to CPU broke for some strange reason. Now, I am waiting for the replacement, therefor my email response might be a little slower then usual. Stay with me.
Today I’ve got promoted from “monk” to “friar” on Perl Monks. Congratulations to myself!
Went to see “Tears of the Sun” in the evening. It was roughly what I expected it to be. Not too bad, but not too good. Just another Bruce Willis movie. This time though, he is tired of saving USA and he moves down to Nigeria. And, finally, those American soldiers start to realize that rushing into the middle of battlefield to pick up your dead friends’ body, just to bring it back home, is very stupid to say the least. Not all of them realized it yet, but they are on the right track.
Remebered that almost forgotten school project of mine? I did lots of coding for it today. Enjoyed perl a lot.
Beer with Lev in the evening.
Surprise of the millenium: one of my classmates from highschool – Yuri Babinkov – showed up in Limassol and called me up. I haven’t seen the guy for like 10 years or something. Actually, I haven’t seen any of my classmates since highschool. We had lots of talk and beer until 5am.
After a pint of Warsteiner with Olga and Vladimir in a small bar called 127 (nice place) we went to Vladimir’s place to watch “Blade Runner“. It is a nice movie overall but slows down a great deal towards the end. We had some fun though while watching it.
We went to see “The Hours” in the evening. Not bad but somewhat slow and boring in few places. Sometimes very predictable, but I don’t know if that is good or bad.
