I've been on a vacation in Miass city. Well, not exactly in city, I lived outside it, near Turgoyak lake. If you're interested what's the nature out there, you may wish to see images I've picked up for you:

PHP - misleading thoughts

Posted 03-07-2010 at 10:29 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I've recently used to hear from many guys that PHP is bad and useless language. Well, generally the source of that point of thinking is a bad code written by newbies(or mature noobs).
Yes, I admit PHP has some basic functions missing, some features need to be improved, etc. It's far from ideal language. But it is very easy to learn. The problem here is many beginners starting from PHP without reading documentation properly, without looking for security in their apps, and, as a result we have...

Movies movies movies... (and philosophy again)

I was going to work this night but I guess I failed at this. One thought about watching movies and it took all nite long... Oh man...
Well, I was watching "Nausicaš of the Valley of the Winds" (1984), I'd say it's one of my favourite movies. It's totally outstanding and amazing movie about Love as it is.
I respect people having that level of using imagination. Ones who create such masterpieces that show us Life as it is, meant to be understood by almost everyone. Right here,...

.RU domains: No rules, no responsibilities

Posted 02-20-2010 at 07:19 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Few days ago we had an accident with one of Russia's most popular bittorrent tracker site, torrents.ru. A domain was undelegated from DNS servers by request of our agencies.
While, in an official agreement, that accepted by both sides(registrar and registrant) when a new .ru domain is registered there is a note about "Registrator may not interact with conflicts a registrant may have with 3rd parties."

WWWall of shame: linux.org

Posted 02-13-2010 at 04:53 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags no-www, noob, www

A new category on my blog: WWWall of shame.
Dedicate to abuse of useless and stupid 'www' prefix.
Planning to update this category when I'll have something worthing of rememberance.

I was just typing some random URLs and got to this domain in my browser: linux.org.
It's so hardcore it won't allow me to use URL without www, telling me I'm using wrong address, www should be used, '.' is an old site. It would be better if that at least redirected me to www. domain,...
