4 years, 11 months ago
To write thought of how we decided to create "one more website of real estate" in our region, arose after reading of this topic. But below the technical part (though about it there can be questions, and readers can sound them in comments – answers will be), how many the ideological moments which helped us to make not simply "one more website about real estate" and something useful will be considered not so much.

The nonmagnetic watch in the world

4 years, 11 months ago
The other day I visited the curious presentation – Omega represented "the nonmagnetic watch in the world": "for the first time in the history of the hour industry the mechanism capable to completely solve a problem of impact of magnetic fields on the course of a mechanical clock is developed". Frankly speaking, until recently I did not even think of that why in general hours need anti-magnetic protection. Of course, all know that if to a mechanical clock to bring a magnet, then they will stop and and forever, but hardly someone will be consciously engaged in damage of the hours, knowing about such fact. But absolutely it is impossible to avoid influence of magnets for hours.

I do not want to tire with presentation details, I will just share that I managed to learn about influence of magnets for hours, and it is a little about those "the nonmagnetic watch in the world".

Whether you thought of how there is a lot of around us magnets? A cover for iPad, a female handbag with a magnetic fastener, the electrorazor, a refrigerator door, the mobile phone, a magnetic framework in supermarkets and the airports, powerful studio stereo speakers, etc. – magnets everywhere, and every year they become more and more.

4 years, 11 months ago
Earlier I placed article the First two outputs from interaction with personnel. At that time (the end of November, 2012) I made these conclusions for myself as an axiom (though such models as Maslou's Pyramid are capable to explain more or less why so occurs), put these outputs aside and began to build "of what was".
As initially I was engaged in the organization of installation and construction works on objects, and is decided to begin "upgrade" was from technical department.
At that time in our technical department 2 assemblers capable to be slave on object and 6 independent engineers worked. Having lowered such trifles as providing engineers with the tool ("entrenching", electro-and high-rise) and an expendable material, I will pass to process description of changes in the organization of works.

Amazon, Reddit and Yandex pay the Adblock Plus developers too

4 years, 11 months ago
Recently creators of the most popular browser expansion for blocking of the advertizing Adblock Plus are accused of all mortal sins: at the beginning of a year reported that they allegedly suggest to include the websites in white the list in exchange for the whole third of the advertizing budget of the company, and in June the German blogger declared that Adblock Plus have strategic partners in the advertizing industry, having called ABP advertizing mafia.

Recently it became known that the Adblock Plus developers receive money from Google for that advertizing from the search company was not blocked by expansion. After the publication of this news on Habré representatives of Adblock Plus contacted me and suggested to conduct interview with one of managing directors of the company Til Faida. It was not especially frank, but shared some parts.

— Last week the German website Horizont reported that Google pays you for that your expansion did not block its advertizing. You can confirm this fact?
— Yes, declarations and sponsor's links in search issue of Google, and also the advertizing AdSense on the websites of their partners were entered in the list of the admissible advertizing Adblock Plus.
