A trip to the Wicklow mountains would not be a bad idea for anyone based in Dublin as it is not too far away. In the dialog below Olga and Trevor talk about their weekend plans.
Olga: Well, the weather forecast for Saturday is very promising. We could do a few hours hiking and then have a picnic by a stream. In many places it can be quite muddy and slippery sometimes. Also, bring a waterproof jacket in case the weather changes and we get caught by the rain.
Trevor: Sure. And how about the picnic? What do I need to bring with me? Olga: Well I am bringing a blanket and Andrei s going to make some hot tea in a thermos flask for everybody. Aoife promised she would bake a cake. So just bring some packed sandwiches and water for yourself. Trevor: Well, maybe I could buy some chocolate and crisps for all the gang? Olga: That would be very nice. I have a spare one at home. Russian translation by Maria Nazarova, Dublin Infocenter.

Demolition expert Romero regrets that his comments to the Albuquerque Journal became fodder for conspiracy theorists. Romero, who agrees with the scientific conclusion that fire triggered the collapses, demanded a retraction from the Journal. It was printed Sept. Directly or indirectly, pressure was brought to bear, forcing Romero to retract his original statement.
That is the farthest thing from the truth. This has been an albatross around my neck for three years. Who cares. Steve was trying to be the embodiment of the counterculture. He had a wispy beard, was very thin, and looked like Ho Chi Minh. Mike really took me under his wing. His values were much aligned with mine. He emphasized that you should never start a company with the goal of getting rich.
Your goal should be making something you believe in and making a company that will last. Steve would come in, take a quick look at what I had done, and tell me it was shit without having any idea what it was or why I had done it. The question between Steve and me was who could be most stubborn, and I was pretty good at that. Woz designed a great machine, but it would be sitting in hobby shops today were it not for Steve Jobs. I was upset and felt abandoned by Markkula.
I brooded about it a lot. He is a dreadful manager… I have found it impossible to work for him… Jobs regularly misses appointments. He acts without thinking and with bad judgment… He does not give credit where due… When told of a new idea, he will immediately attack it and say that it is worthless or even stupid, and tell you that it was a waste of time to work on it.
They wanted to humor me and give me something to do, which was fine. It was like going back to the garage for me. I had my own ragtag team and I was in control.
He had an uncanny ability to always get what he wanted, to size up a person and know exactly what to say to reach a person. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. I wanted to buy it because I was really into computer graphics. It eventually became a form of torture. Jobs has become the power behind the throne. Jobs has urged a number of former Apple colleagues to return to the company, hinting strongly that he plans to take charge, they said.
According to one of Mr. It was the dumbest thing in the world to let companies making crappier hardware use our operating system and cut into our sales. Steve is just that way, which is why I think he recruited me. Music companies win. The artists win. Apple wins. There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. Since the very very beginning. And we always will. My model for business is The Beatles: They were four guys that kept each other's negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other.
And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are not done by one person, they are done by a team of people . I feel that ideas are very fragile, so you have to be tender when they are in development.
I realized that if he pissed on this, it would be so sad, because I knew it was so important. His reality distortion is when he has an illogical vision of the future, such as telling me that I could design the Breakout game in just a few days. I grew up a Southern Baptist, and we had revival meetings with mesmerizing but corrupt preachers.
The only problem with Microsoft is they have absolutely no taste. I have no problem with their success. They've earned their success I have a problem with the fact that they just really make third rate products. And in that case, wow. Team, it turned out that Michael Dell wasn't perfect at predicting the future. Based on today's stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell.
Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment of reflection today. Flash is a spaghetti-ball piece of technology that has lousy performance and really bad security problems.Многие девушки завидуют судьбе супермоделей. И это вполне объяснимо.
