NB: "wantdrumie" has no specific meaning but it was just the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the letters that we should use.

An estimated 95 percent of all commercial e-mail messages are sent in HTML or in a multipart (combined HTML and text) format. Most e-mail includes at least a single external image, even if it's the open-tracking image, a clear, one-pixel GIF image used to track whether an e-mail has been opened.
The primary reasons behind image-blocking features are to enable users to prohibit pornographic images from loading and to prevent spammers from knowing if users open their messages. Gmail, for example, states: "Gmail disables images sent to you to protect you from unknown senders, like spammers, who use images and links to verify that your email address is real."

|Nochnoj dozor (ru: Ночной дозор , en: Night Watch or Night Patrol) is a movie everybody around me is talking about for some time. Based on the novel written by the Russian author Sergey Lukyanenko (who also wrote the screenplay) it tells the story of the fight between the powers of the Dark and the Light.|
The movie takes you almost directly to modern Moscow, Russia. The vampires have licenses, the powers of the light are a little lax, some of the normal people believe in the supernatural (or boil sausages on the tubes in the power plant while taking their shifts there). You'll see the typical Russian style and sets all the time. That's exactly what's making the film different from all other vampire movies I've seen lately.
Visit the official site of the movie Night Watch on www.dozorfilm.ru

To discuss his novels or learn about the filming of the next two parts of the Night Watch, visit his forum.
• The movie was a total blockbuster in Russia and it is the most expensive film ever made there (~5m USD).
• The next movie will be based on Lukyanenko’s novel Day Patrol. It’s in post-production stage and will be across cinemas in 2005.
• Lukyanenko himself is going to appear in the second and third part of the trilogy as the Mag Ruslan.
• Nochnoj Dozor was first filmed as TVseries (4x52) in 2003.
• A special font called Zhekovskoi Gothic was created for this movie by the Russian design studio Letterhead. You can see the font info on the official movie site too.
• As the movie site is in Russian, here are direct links to the:

| A colleague is having Siemens SX1 and today while he was on a meeting with our boss he left me playing with his phone. No doubt that this telephone was not meant to be a camera. Anyway, I was bored so I took some pictures of the surroundings.|

Every day some of us travel kilometers underground. Why don't we use our imagination while staring at the map? So did Paul Middlewick some 15 years ago, using tube lines, stations and junctions he started spotting animals on the underground. Later many other creatures in different form, size or colors followed the Elephant.

I've got two huge emails the other day with a total size of 25MB. What could be sent? Pictures. A friend of mine made my day sending me a few high-resolution photos.
One is the World Press Photo winner for 2002.
The picture in black and white was taken by Eric Gregorian in June 2002.
An earthquake struck Iran killing more than 500 people. The photo represents the funeral of one of the victims. The boy on the picture is his son who is clinging his father's trousers.

"The New York Post is reporting that 'Based on the half-dozen hires in recent weeks, Google appears to be planning to launch its own Web browser and other software products to challenge Microsoft.'

I spent the Sunday sleeping till midday and then I went with some friends to a ski resort about one hour drive from here. Staying in a ski resort at this time of the year is nothing special except of the fruit salad that i got in one of the local pastries.
Anyway, I'm quite happy with the time I spent there because lately the stress is getting too much and I don't know how to control my temper, emotions and most of all: how to organize the communication between my new and my old boss (as I'm having two at the moment). This took me to a few online resources on how to beat the stress.

A true storyDiario de ella
El sábado por la noche lo encontré raro. Habíamos quedado en encontrarnos en un bar para tomar una copa.
Estuve toda la tarde de compras con unas amigas y pensé que era culpa mía porque llegué con un poco de retraso a mi cita, pero él no hizo ningún comentario.
La conversación no era muy animada, así que le propuse ir a un lugar más íntimo para poder charlar más tranquilamente.
Fuimos a un restaurante y él se seguía portando de forma extraña. Estaba como ausente. Intenté que se animara, y empecé a pensar si sería por culpa mía o por cualquier otra cosa.
Le pregunté y me dijo que no tenía que ver conmigo. Pero no me quedé muy convencida.
En el camino para casa, en el coche, le dije que lo quería mucho y él se limitó a pasarme el brazo por los hombros, sin contestarme.
No sé cómo explicar su actitud, porque no me dijo que él también me quería, no dijo nada y yo estaba cada vez más preocupada.
Llegamos por fin a casa y en ese momento pensé que quería dejarme. Por eso intenté hacerle hablar, pero encendió la tele y se puso a mirarla con aire distante, como haciéndome ver que todo había terminado entre nosotros.
Por fin desistí y le dije que me iba a la cama. Más o menos diez minutos más tarde, él vino también y, para mi sorpresa, correspondió a mis caricias e hicimos el amor.
Pero seguía teniendo un aire distraído.
Después quise afrontar la situación, hablar con él cuanto antes, pero se quedó dormido.
Empecé a llorar y lloré hasta quedarme adormecida.
Ya no sé qué hacer. Estoy casi segura de que sus pensamientos están con otra. Mi vida es un auténtico desastre.
Diario de él
El Madrid perdió. Al menos eché un polvo.
Looking forward to more on whatisthefloss
Nielsen//NetRatings examined how long U.S. Internet users were staying during August 2004. While there were far fewer at-work users than there were at home, the working Internet population spent more time online and surfing. Both the at-home and at-work populations stepped up their Internet time and activity since July, with the small exception of at-work users shaving 1 second off the amount of time they spent viewing a Web page.
C’mon! People are taking mojitos in August, they go beaching, playing underwater *multiplayer* games and where the hack this world is going when people who stayed at home and work in August turn out to be more than the ones for June or July?
|Average Web Usage, U.S., August 2004|
|Number of Sessions/Visits Per Person||32||67|
|Number of Domains Visited Per Person||54||104|
|PC Time Per Person||27:05:22||78:22:36|
|Duration of a Web Page Viewed||00:00:54||00:01:02|

Do you remember August’04? Where did you spend it? Was it online?

While surfing on the blogs around I found Michael's Some People... which gave me food for a short thinking: Today a colleague (and a friend of mine) told me that he and his gay-friend are going to get married the next year in Germany. His boyfriend is German but he lives and works here. In Bulgaria the homosexual marriages, as well as lots of other things are not defined at all, so that's why they chose Germany and probably after the ceremony they'll stay to live there... It’s a pity when people relocate because if such legislative reasons.

This summer was SPORT. First the Euro2004 Football Chanpionship, later the Olympic Games 2004 in Athens and me playing shuttlecock in-between these world events.

I know at least two, three... males who'll get at least 80% on the Metrosexual Test. Unfortunately "This test is ONLY FOR THE GUYS. Sorry, there is no such thing as a metrosexual woman."; that's why I took another test in order to calm down my growing discontent with the boys around me:
I AM 83% BITCH!
I am one of those people that love to hear the sound of their voice. That and my lousy attitude make for a mixture as toxic next-day-mexican-dinner-ass-drip.
Fine. Now I know what I am. I feel apathetic.
How can you get very far,
If you don't know Who You Are?
How can you do what you ought,
If you don't know What You've Got?
And if you don't know Which To Do
Of all the things in front of you,
Then what you'll have when you are through
Is just a mess without a clue
Of all the best that can come true
If you know What and Which and Who.

The previous post was provoked by my recent GMail first encounters.
Send me an email. It will make me happy. All emails are welcome (including the ones with big attachments and spam-letters :). I want to try all functions of this Gmail.
By the way, do you know anybody who is using her/his Gmail account for communication? I don’t know lots of people having Gmail account, but most of them are saying that they’re going to use it as storage for big files, pictures, etc and when talking about communication with friends, they’ll stick to their current emails. Which doesn’t make big sense for Google...or it does?
