Digging the stats

Went through some statistics that Statcounter offers. Seems my previous post has been rather popular.

  • 7th August – Kowloon, Hong Kong (Pccw Limited – n219078183252.netvigator.com) from Google search ‘tony vincent + marsha yuan’
  • 8th August – Montreal, Canada (Bell Sympatico – bas3-windsor12-1128741577.dsl.bell.ca) from Google search ‘”Marsha Yuan” + “Tony Vincent”‘
  • 9th August – Shanghai, China (Hltt Communication Co. Ltd) from Google search ‘tony vincent marsha yuan’
  • 12 August – Shanghai, China (Hltt Communication Co. Ltd – same IP as above) from Google search ‘marsha yuan estonia’
  • 17th August – Cologne, Germany (Versatel Deutschland Dynamic Pool – i5387C5AC.versanet.de) from Google search ‘ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER`s Gala Concert Tallin’
  • 17th August – Los Angeles, United States (Netscape Communications Corp – cache-ntc-aa01.proxy.aol.com) from Google search ‘”lloyd webber” Estonia “tony vincent” photo’

China, US and Canada… coincidence perhaps but still interesting.

Skype gives away ten minutes

By logging in to Skype website today you can get ten free minutes to call regular phones. Got mine already now need to decide who to call to.
Also there is Skype’s tram on tramline 3. It will change the line occasionally and ride till 25th August. I might use it when it goes to line 1 or 2 which I mostly use. Oh, and that’s free aswell :)

In the world of physics

I’ve always thought that physics is interesting but at the same time it’s very complex aswell so I haven’t been very interested in it either.
But lately I was reading one blog which mentioned this site. And well now I can’t stop watching it. So be careful clicking if you’re person who uses mostly “why” of all questions as it is rather addicting.
And that’s quite bad because it slows down my progress in learning Oracle. I know I’ve been talking about it a lot, but I really want to get it correctly done this year and at the same time I have so many other interests aswell that I just don’t have time for it all.
I can’t imagine there were times when I was really bored with no idea what to do with my time. But there were when I was younger. At the moment it seems so impossible even if there were 48 hours in a day.

Digital camera and other pieces on my mind

So I finally have my digital camera. For exactly a month already to be exact. It’s Powershot a610 just as I planned and the day before yesterday I bought rechargeable batteries for it as I was using alkalines so far. I haven’t used it very much yet but even so I’m convinced that it was right decision to buy that camera. It is easy to use automatic mode and just a bit harder to use manual modes. I feel that I need to learn the basics of photography more, since I sometimes feel that the camera could do better if I could set better combination of aperture and shutter speed. I’ve uploaded some of my pictures here. I especially like the one at left.
Otherwise I’m busy with school. In biology we have to make a presentation about greenhouse effect at 15th, it couldn’t have been better day than my bday.
I like math better. I participated in county olympiad and got 1.-2. place :). However I believe that exercises were in some way simpler than they have usually been. Another thing is that many talented students from our county study at Tallinn’s schools so competition at county olympiad isn’t so hard.
In Informatics we learn to use Gimp which is great because I know many things already. For others it seems to be difficult to get used to with Gimp windows and the way of handling layers.
Also sparknotes.com is a lifesaver. Sure I almost always read the books we have to for literature but some books like “The Trial” by Franz Kafka are hard to understand and it makes it easier to write an essay after reading sparknotes’ summary and commentary. So I’m rather relieved after noticing that next book we have to read “The Plague” by Albert Camus is also listed there.
There’s this song “Lõpulaul” performed by Evelin Pang on the cd called “Rändamine” that I really want. It sounded very great live in summer 2004 but I’m afraid that the cd is too expensive to buy since I only want one song. Oh well a cd with Tallinn City Theatre songs is supposed to come out soon and I won’t miss that one. And… I managed to get 3rd row tickets for Ugala’s play “Lõõmav pimedus” at 3rd March so I have something to look forward to. I like that feeling.
Now off to clean my room and read through biology material.
