My Favorit month (Day 1 - 2)

Sunday, 1st July. I woke up at 10:00. Since my last city-shity bike has been stolen, I needed some bike for transportation in the city. Good offer in Linz didn't happen, so I took iPad and searched for some city bike in Slovakia that morning. Found one! But in Piešťany - 70 km away! The temperature outside was around 35°C at noon so I waited a little bit. During that time I just wrote the message on facebook - who would like to travel with me to Piešťany? I was so suprised when several people wanted to have a transport to or from Piešťany! I didn't travel alone at all. It was great trip. Actually I have earned some money.


At 6 pm I was at Tesco in Piešťany where the guy who was selling the bike came. He really knew a lot about bikes. He was a bike racer some years ago. I have bought old Czechoslovak Favorit bike from the 80's from him (59€). I liked that bike on the first sight. Was in good condiion, I took a test ride in the parking area and loaded in the car.

When I came to Vienna, I went immediately to Prater park to test the bike again. It was dark night, but I liked the feeling riding the bike and I was looking forward to ride to work next day.



Without any adjustments I took the bike and went to work on my Favorit bike. I tracked that track with iPhone. It took me 22:21 to get to work with this bike. It is almost half the time in comparison with trams. With my KTM MTB it took me almost 24 minutes. Favorit has 28'' wheels and the weather was perfect today.

Very comfortable position, seat and handlebar make very good impression when you ride it. It is designed for the city. It was just pleasure to ride along Donaukalanal in the morning.

At that time I have decided not to buy Wiener Linien Monatskarte for public transportation for July. I want use only bikes or car if necessary. So it means that I will take my bike to work and back every day.

In the evening I made just a little adjustments (fixed the screws, raised seatpost), but nothing essential. I am looking forward to ride it again in the morning!

Here is my track to work: http://gps.motionx.com/og/index.php?id=2c95de3e3798db2ddeb131adb488830d&fb_action_ids=10150982699509774&fb_action_types=motionx-gps%3Arecord&fb_source=timeline_og

Additional RAM to iMac and installation of some software and games

RAM upgrade

After Mac OS 9 updates I started to use this system. But after a short while I realized that I really need more RAM. It was almost impossible to work with more than one application. Therefore I was decided to buy 512 MB RAM.

I knew about one small shop with old computers on Favoritenstrasse (U6: between Taubstummengasse and Südtiroler Platz). I went there and asked about SDRAM PC100. Old but nice guy showed me some 512 MB modules for about 30 €. I didn't have so much money with me at that moment and I also wanted to visit that Mac shop once more. So I left the shop and forgot my umbrella there.

That Mac shop offered me the same kind of RAM for about 45-50 €. Hmm, .... No thanks. I went to my room and picked some money from bankomat. I returned to the computer shop and the seller offered me (except my umbrella - for free of course) one module for 24 €. It has not been tested yet. I have bought it and put in my iMac - and nothing happened. Bad, but I had to go to the school…

Windows 7 RC Ultimate on HP Compaq nx6110

I have never tried Vista on my laptop, because it is well suited for WinXP and I don't like Vista. But what if you can download the new Win 7 RC for free?

I'm using Windows XP since I have bought my old laptop HP Compaq nx6110 (1,4 Ghz Celeron M, 768 MB RAM). WinXP runs on this laptop really fast and smoothly, but I have turned every "eyecandy" off and it looks like old Win95 now. But I like this neutral look.

Last week I was closed in my room for two days installing and trying different Linux distributions. After this time I ended with Arch Linux installed on my hard drive - system was stable and either WiFi worked well. Then I realized, that I have spent so much time and done nothing useful. So I decided to work with WinXP and don't bother with other OS (like 2 weeks with Mac OS X a month ago).

But NO. Incidentally I got to this website and started immediately download the iso image. The download process ran in Java and I had download speed about 800 KB/s, that…

Ako som si hodinky opravil

Presnejšie ako som opravil remienok na hodinkách. Pár týždňov dozadu som vystupoval z električky a hodinky sa mi zachytili o držadlo na dverách. Vyše mesiaca som bol bez hodiniek, stále som vyťahoval mobil z ruksaku. Našťastie tieto časy sú preč.

Najprv som šiel do značkového obchodu CASIO na Vajnorskej 47 v Bratislave, či to vedia opraviť. Predavač mi povedal, že opraviť sa to dá len tak, že sa vymení kryt hodiniek a nie je isté či sa kryt na môj starý typ dá zohnať. Poradil mi, že si to môžem skúsiť opraviť aj sám. Pre dobré služby v predajni som zverejnil jej adresu.
Potreboval som len jeden špendlík, zapaľovač a nejaký držiak, kliešte. Nahrial som špičku špendlíka, aby sa dostal cez kryt a spravil tak malý otvor. To som spravil na každej strane. Potom som cez oba otvory prestrčil špendlík.

Vyskúšal som to potom aj s remienkom.

Koniec špičky špendlíku prečnieval cez kryt a nechcel som sa náhodne na ňom poškriabať, tak som si vymyslel, že tam kvapnem trocha cínu. Pri mojej nešikovnosti …
