... ? :: w.bloggar FAQ ::The w.bloggar is an application that targets to be an interface between the user and his blog(s), in other words, is a Post and Template editor, with serveral features and resources that the browser based blog editors can not offer. Because it's a software that runs over Windows GUI it allows the user to edit his posts without being connected to the Internet, saving locally one or more texts to be posted in the future. It can be minimized to the Tray bar as an icon and everytime the user wants to publish a new text, he just need a click and has the editor ready to work, finished the text, another click (if connected) and the post will be published.

... ? undercurrent: November 2003 ArchivesLIDL's uk outlets are part car-boot sale, part eastern-bloc theme park, part 70s simstim. It?s an extraordinary place that goes against every rule of the cutting-edge supermarket. You know how in Goodbye Lenin Alexander has to go out and get the old east-german pickles for his mum and finds the supermarket transformed into a cornucopia of glossy overpackaged goods from all over the planet? Going to LIDL is like that, in reverse. Other chains can be pleasingly parochial (at the Somerfield I went to in London there was a small section of an aisle signposted as 'foreign foods', including that rare exotic creature, pasta). But LIDL tops them all for making no effort. Semiologically, it's neither hot nor cool, it's colder than Iceland, it's where lifestyles go to die.

Space Invaders (which, strictly, celebrated its 25th anniversary last year as it was launched in 1978) made a cultural impact that is difficult to overstate. Taito, its Japanese creator, has accorded it the reverence it deserves with this anniversary edition, as well as merchandising and a compilation of Japanese electronica.

"I thought americans didn't understand Irony....."Internet voting presents far too many opportunities for hackers or even terrorists to interfere with fair and accurate voting, potentially in ways impossible to detect," the experts said in a statement Jan. 21. "Such tampering could alter election results, particularly in close contests."
