6 years, 8 months ago
On Assembly 2010 demopat, taking place in these days off in Helsinki, the premiere of the The Demoscene Documentary project took place. Authors aimed to create a series of short documentaries about demostsena stories. Heroes of the first series of a cycle of Future Crew steel and their legendary work Second Reality ( 1993, PC).



Unfortunately, authors of the project decided to do it in Finnish, "native" for the European demostsena, but timely guessed to sub-title a video series the English. I assure, 17 minutes of suomi are quite tolerant, for the sake of an opportunity "to glance in eyes" to legends.

UPD: For real fans the separate roller laid out home video about creation of Second Reality (its fragments appear in the movie).

ICQ vs XMPP (Jabber)

8 years, 3 months ago
Due to the current events I offer the following:
Bad option: to download the official client
Good option: to come on jabber.ru and to pass to the normal protocol and thus to get rid of AOL dependence. The Svezhezaregistrirovanny address which as izvetsno, it is much more convenient, than some tsifirka, friends can give by a normal, antiquated method: on a mobile phone, on an e-mail (it is possible even to arrange mailing), and it is possible at a meeting.

UPD:
By the way, if you use gmail, then we already have jabber. It is possible to read about setup of your favourite client here.
All of good luck!

1 year, 5 months ago
Hi, giktayms. My name is Yura and today I want to tell a little about monetization of our project which allows us to pay back maintaining this blog (that is especially actual because of recent value increase twice). I will remind that we deal with a problem of the choice of a difficult technique and it is the main mission of Dronk.ru.

If to look at many of our posts on a giktaymsa, then it is possible to notice the terrible fact: "They use referalny references, so earn from my purchases!!!". And you will be right — we really do it, but that if I tell that the referalny link is better, than just the link to online store of the Russian company? We want to be the most open so we show cards.
