3 years, 12 months ago
Probably our government found one more source of replenishment the budget. Russians began to buy too much in the western online stores and the Federal Customs Service suggests to enter duty on goods to 1000 euros.

Free calls by the mobile phone through Tele2

4 years ago
Today I for the first time made such free call by the mobile phone for which to me was "normal" cellular communication enough. I emphasize: this call went not on the Internet ( that is not on "Skype" and not on SIP where you will surprise nobody with free of charge), and through the "normal" cellular operator — Tele2.  I called the subscriber of other cellular operator.

 At the same time free of charge my call was provided not with advertizing (as at the European Blyk) and not any fixed advance monthly or weekly payment ( in the presence of which I should call calls not "free", but "unlimited"). My call was free on a rate.

And  all this because that the day before yesterday  (on October 16, 2013)    news about emergence of a new rate "Again cheaper" in the conditions of which free outgoing calls are registered was uploaded to the website Tele2. As soon as I found time in more detail to study conditions of this rate then I passed to it.

The amount of free calls is limited also in time ( no more than 30 minutes a day), and in space (only on mobile and landline phones of Krasnodar Krai and the Republic of Adygea). But I not the great fan to stir by the mobile phone so this half an hour will be enough for me бóльшую part of days.

Reflections how to exchange pride and comfort for this itself


"To grow and remain itself, courage", E.E. Cummings is necessary

About six months ago I decided to leave very good work in Google to try to lead other life. I had a weak idea of what I will do farther, but I left because could not remain any more. I cannot put it into words, but something in me said that I should not move further on this career way. I accurately felt that he will not bring me there where I want and that I need to contract from this road. Though not really understood where I want to get. Every month of stay in Google my alarm and sensitivity grew. I could wait for the necessary turn, however I understood that than further, than it will be more difficult to contract. And what if I do not know, where exactly I need to contract? The only thing what I was sure of, was that nobody will prompt me the right decision: neither my manager, nor colleagues, nor friends, nor parents. I provided myself in old age: the wonderful husband, beautiful children, mortgage and destruction, that I missed an opportunity to be engaged in in what wanted to be engaged. Therefore in January the 2013th I contracted into the next turn.
