Been a while…

since my last post, almost a year and a lot has happened. Two Ubuntu releases, third one being in alpha right now, Windows 7 and Snow Leopard. The latter is the one I’m using to write this particular post. Yeah, that’s right. I got a Mac, but no only did I get a mac, I got myself a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and I got myself a Linode, running Ubuntu 9.04 and waiting for the next LTS release to upgrade.

As you might imagine I have got lots of stories to tell, if I can be bothered to actually write posts. But I’ll try.

review: From Russia With Hate

First I got to tell you that this was one of the most disturbing, scary but also revealing videos I’ve seen in the past few months. Current correspondent Christof Putzel travelled to Russia and talked with immigrants and Neonazis about their experiences or believes (in case of the Neonazis).

In Russia there seems to exist a community of young people beating up immigrants, capturing it with their cams to post those disgusting videos on the web.

By the end of the video it is revealed that after Christof leaving Russia one of the Neonazis he interviewed was arrested. Which in return caused the kidnapping of two innocent people of whom one was beheaded and the other one was shot, just to force the government to release their comrad.

It really, sickend me. And frankly I can’t even remotely understand how anyone on this friggin’ planet can do such things.

Well, enough talk, here’s the video:
