the magical inner sanctum of Blizzard


Blizzard's library isn't just filled with books; there are entire sections dedicated to video games. The collection can be browsed electronically from the desk of every employee on campus, and a full-time librarian is on hand to help you find what you need.

Synergy - lucreaza pe 2 calculatoare ca si cu 2 monitoare

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all. Learn more about how it works.


Mai multi dintre voi m-ati intrebat daca exista vreun soft care sa permita lucrul simultan la 2 calculatoare cu un singur set tastatura+mouse. That's what Synergy does!

Canon 5D Mark II used to shoot entire House season finale



May 17, folks. That's the date when the grumpy doctor you wish you were and the snazzy camera you wish you owned will join forces on American network television. The final episode in this season's run of House has been shot exclusively using Canon's 5D Mark II, and the show's director Greg Yaitanes has been taking questions about the experience on Twitter. PetaPixel have helpfully collated the Q&A session into a coherent pseudo-interview, which you'll be able to find at the source below.

“Change the numbers, but don’t change the conclusion.” - data faking la nivelul miliardelor de dolari

What I could not get my head around was having to force-fit analysis to a conclusion. In one case, the question I was tasked with solving had a clear and unambiguous answer: By my estimate, the client’s plan of action had a net present discounted value of negative one billion dollars. Even after accounting for some degree of error in my reckoning, I could still be sure that theirs was a losing proposition. But the client did not want analysis that contradicted their own, and my manager told me plainly that it was not our place to question what the client wanted.

In theory, it was their money to lose. If they wanted a consulting report that parroted back their pre-determined conclusion, who was I to complain? I did not have any right to dictate that their money be spent differently.

Doctoranzi în foame

Paşte înfometat pentru mii de doctoranzi care au fost păcăliţi că vor primi fonduri europene, ca să facă cercetare în România. Bursele doctorale din fonduri UE au intrat, parcă, în pământ. Universităţile dau din umeri pentru că n-au bani iar autorităţile dau asigurări ca...s-a rezolvat. Iar doctoranzii fac cercetare în a învăţa.....cum să supravieţuieşti fără un leu.


In plus de asta n-au taiat si asigurarile medicale.

Quick and dirty introduction to photography lighting



Once you feel you’ve started to get the knack of pointing your camera at things and clicking the button, it’s time to start taking control of all the lighting in the scene. But, as it turns out, that’s bloody tricky.
