Novosti ali ne filmske

Evo, sticajem okolnosti sam ugrabio par slobodnih trenutaka da se posvetim ovom mestu na kom možeš da saznaš šta se događa u mom životu...
"A šta se to događa u tvom životu, Marko?" sad me ti pitaš, a ja ti kažem:


Krenuo sam na obuku za vozačku dozvolu B kategorije u Auto školi JKP "Parking servis". Do sad sam imao 4 časa, od čega 3 časa vožnje po poligonu (tokom kojih se moje raspoloženje promenilo iz "ja ovo nikad neću naučiti" u "hm... sviđa mi se!").

Od 2008. počinjem da radim na projektu "Prosense" (Wireless Sensor Networks), finansiranom od strane EU, preko profesora Veljka Milutinovića (kod kog trenutno služim civilno vojsku). Moja oblast će biti algoritmi rutiranja. U martu sledeće godine se planira put u Dablin na prvi sastanak svih učesnika u projektu.

Imam novi mobilni, ako se tako može nazvati Nokia 9500 :)

Odselio mi se Mima Cima, tako da sam opet sam u gajbi na kraju sveta (kako NBg-đani zovu ovaj moj kraj).

Višnja se preselila iz Dubrovačke (Dorćol) u Vukovu (Zemun - Gradski park). I dalje je cimerka sa Ljubicom. Stan su našle tako što su dale dva oglasa u Politici (oko 400 dinara za 12ak reči za jedno izdanje). Vrlo efikasan način traženja stana!

Eto... ako se setim još nečeg, dodaću...
(Možda bi ovo trebalo da bude više postova, ali mrzelo me je da kucam svaki posebno)

Novi član porodice

Dugo vremena sam osećao potrebu za digitalnim fotoaparatom i najzad mi se ukazala prilika da postanem srećan vlasnik jednog primerka. Iako inače puno vremena biram kada nešto kupujem, ovaj put sam odlučio za par dana. Najviše zbog toga što sam upućen u stanje među proizvođačima i jasno mi je da je Canon (po meni) neprevaziđen. Znači, trebalo je samo odabrati model iz trenutne ponude. Odabrao sam klasu: PowerShot A, a od modela sam se odlučio za najbolji (tj. najnoviji što nije uvek isto, ali u ovom slučaju jeste) u seriji 5xx, tj. A570IS.

(Image Copyright: www.digitalcamerainfo.com)

Ono "IS" znači "Image Stabilization" i predstavlja mehanički uređaj u objektivu koji smanjuje negativne posledice podrhtavanja kamere, omogućavajući fotografisanje sa dužom ekspozicijom sa manje zamućenja slike.

Vratio sam se iz Slovenije

...čisto da ne bude zabune :)
Bilo je božanstveno:


Bio sam u Bledu koji izgleda kao mesto iz bajke. Otišli smo (kolege iz IPSI i sa ETF i ja) 8. oktobra a vratili se 11.
Nažalost, fotoaparat sam kupio tek kad sam se vratio iz Slovenije, tako da će fotografije biti dostupne kada ih ostali učesnici postave na Net...
Ovde su neke za početak (autor Jim Baker, Boulder, CO).

[Oglas]Potreban stan

Edit: Nađen je stan :)

Višnja (moja devojka, za neupućene (ako ih ima)) traži stan (garsonjeru) za jednu ili dve studentkinje (sebe i eventualno njenu sestru Ljubicu).
Prednost: stan u zgradi, centralno grejanje, Zemun (i okolina).

Vrli novi Slack

Slackware Release Announcement
Well folks, it's that time to announce a new stable Slackware release
again. So, without further ado, announcing Slackware version 12.0!
Since we've moved to supporting the 2.6 kernel series exclusively (and
fine-tuned the system to get the most out of it), we feel that Slackware
12.0 has many improvements over our last release (Slackware 11.0) and is a
must-have upgrade for any Slackware user.

This first Slackware edition of the year combines Slackware's legendary
simplicity (and close tracking of original sources), stability, and
security with some of the latest advances in Linux technology. Expect no
less than the best Slackware yet.

Among the many program updates and distribution enhancements, you'll find
two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.4.1,
a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop
environment, and KDE 3.5.7, the latest version of the award-winning K
Desktop Environment. We have added to Slackware support for HAL (the
Hardware Abstraction Layer) which allows the system administrator to add
users to the cdrom and plugdev groups. Then they will be able to use items
such as USB flash sticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage,
portable hard drives, CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all without
requiring sudo, the mount or umount command. Just plug and play.
Properly set up, Slackware's desktop should be suitable for any level of
Linux experience.

Slackware uses the 2.6.21.5 kernel bringing you advanced performance
features such as journaling filesystems, SCSI and ATA RAID volume support,
SATA support, Software RAID, LVM (the Logical Volume Manager, and
encrypted filesystems. Kernel support for X DRI (the Direct Rendering
Interface) brings high-speed hardware accelerated 3D graphics to Linux.
We have switched from the older one-piece X11 Window System to the newest
modular X11 from X.Org, which should be simpler to maintain and will
likely speed up development of new features for X (such as translucent
windows and a few other things that are on the horizon).

There are two kinds of kernels in Slackware -- the huge kernels, which
contain support for just about every driver in the Linux kernel. These are
primarily intended to be used for installation, but there's no real reason
that you couldn't continue to run them after you have installed. The
other type of kernel is the generic kernel, in which nearly every driver
is built as a module. To use a generic kernel you'll need to build an
initrd to load your filesystem module and possibly your drive controller
or other drivers needed at boot time, configure LILO to load the initrd at
boot, and reinstall LILO. See the docs in /boot after installing for more
information. Slackware's Linux kernels come in both SMP and non-SMP types
now. The SMP kernel supports multiple processors, multi-core CPUs,
HyperThreading, and about every other optimization available. In our own
testing this kernel has proven to be fast, stable, and reliable. We
recommend using the SMP kernel even on single processor machines if it
will run on them.

From the beginning, Slackware has offered a stable and secure Linux
distribution for UNIX veterans as well as an easy-to-use system for
beginners. Slackware includes everything you'll need to run a powerful
server or workstation. Each Slackware package follows the setup and
installation instructions from its author(s) as closely as possible,
offering you the most stable and easily expandable setup.

Here are some of the advanced features of Slackware 12.0:

- Runs the 2.6.21.5 version of the Linux kernel from ftp.kernel.org.
Also included is a kernel patched with Speakup to support speech
synthesizers providing access to Linux for the visually impaired
community. The 2.6.x kernel series has matured into a stable
kernel, and provides reliable performance for your desktop or
your production server.

- System binaries are linked with the GNU C Library, version 2.5.
This version of glibc also has excellent compatibility with
existing binaries.

- X11 7.2.0. This is the X.Org Foundation's modular X Window System.
You will notice many more X package than before, and it's probably
best to install them all. There's been much activity in the X
development world, and the improvements here in terms of performance
and hardware support are sure to be only the beginning.

- Installs gcc-4.1.2 as the default C, C++, Objective-C,
Fortran-77/95, and Ada 95 compiler.

- Support for fully encrypted network connections with OpenSSL,
OpenSSH, OpenVPN, and GnuPG.

- Apache (httpd) 2.2.4 web server with Dynamic Shared Object
support, SSL, and PHP 5.2.3.

- PCMCIA, CardBus, USB, IEE1394 (FireWire) and ACPI support. This
makes Slackware a great operating system for your laptop.

- The udev dynamic device management system for Linux 2.6.x.
This locates and configures most hardware automatically as it
is added (or removed) from the system, and creates the access
nodes in /dev. It also loads the kernel modules required by
sound cards and other hardware at boot time.

- New development tools, including Perl 5.8.8, Python 2.5.1,
Ruby 1.8.6, Subversion 1.4.4, git-1.5.2.2, mercurial-0.9.4,
graphical tools like Qt designer and KDevelop, and much more.

- Updated versions of the Slackware package management tools make it
easy to add, remove, upgrade, and make your own Slackware packages.
Package tracking makes it easy to upgrade from Slackware 11.0 to
Slackware 12.0 (see CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT). The slackpkg tool in
/extra can also help update from an older version of Slackware to
a newer one, and keep your Slackware system up to date. In
addition, the slacktrack utility (in extra/) will help you build
and maintain your own packages.

- Web browsers galore! Includes KDE's Konqueror 3.5.7,
SeaMonkey 1.1.2 (this is the replacement for the Mozilla
Suite), and the immensely popular Firefox 2.0.0.4, as well as
the Thunderbird 2.0.0.4 email and news client with advanced
junk mail filtering.

- The complete K Desktop Environment (KDE) version 3.5.7, including
the KOffice productivity suite, networking tools, GUI development
with KDevelop, multimedia tools (including the amazing Amarok
music player), the Konqueror web browser and file manager, dozens
of games and utilities, international language support, and more.

- A collection of GTK+ based applications including pidgin-2.0.2,
gimp-2.2.15, gkrellm-2.2.10, gxine-0.5.11, xchat-2.8.2, xsane-0.994,
and pan-0.131.

- Large repository of extra software packages compiled and ready to
run. This includes various window managers, the Java(TM) 2 Software
Development Kit Standard Edition, libsafe (buffer overflow protection
for additional security), ISDN support, additional 802.11 drivers,
and much more (see the /extra directory).

- Many more improved and upgraded packages than we can list here. For
a complete list of core packages in Slackware 12.0, see this file:

ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-12.0/PACKAGES.TXT


Downloading Slackware 12.0:
---------------------------

The full version of Slackware Linux 12.0 is available for download from
the central Slackware FTP sites hosted by our friends at www.cwo.com
and osuosl.org:

ftp://slackware.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware-12.0/
ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-12.0/

If the sites are busy, see the list of official mirror sites here:

http://slackware.com/getslack/

We will be setting up BitTorrent downloads for the official ISO images.
Stay tuned to http://slackware.com for the latest updates.

Instructions for burning the Slackware tree onto install discs may be
found in the isolinux directory.


Purchasing Slackware on CD-ROM:
-------------------------------

Or, please consider purchasing the Slackware Linux 12.0 six CD-ROM set
directly from Slackware Linux, and you'll be helping to support the
continued development of Slackware Linux! :-)

This is the official release of Slackware on CD-ROM, and has many enhanced
features, including:

- Easy bootable CD-ROM installation. If your machine can boot a
CD-ROM, just boot the first disc to begin the installation process.
- The source code used to build Slackware Linux 12.0.

The price for the Slackware Linux CD-ROM set is $49.95 plus shipping.

Slackware 12.0 is also available on a single DVD for $59.95 plus shipping.

Slackware Linux is also available by subscription. When we release a new
version of Slackware (which is normally once or twice a year) we ship it
to you and bill your credit card $32.95 plus shipping. Shipping is $5 in
the USA, Canada, and Mexico for First Class. Overseas is $9 PER ORDER.
There is an additional $3 COD charge (USA Only). UPS Blue Label (2nd day)
[USA Only] is $10 PER ORDER, UPS Red Label (next day) [USA Only] is $15
PER ORDER.

Before ordering express shipping, you may wish to check that we have the
product in stock. We make releases to the net at the same time as disc
production begins, so there is a lag between the online release and the
shipping of media. But, even if you download now you can still buy the
official media later. You'll feel good, be helping the project, and have
a great decorative item perfect for any computer room shelf. :-)


Ordering Information:
---------------------

You can order online at the Slackware Linux store:
http://store.slackware.com

Other Slackware items like t-shirts, caps, pins, and stickers
can also be found here. These will help you find and identify
yourself to your fellow Slackware users. :-)

Order inquiries (including questions about becoming a Slackware
reseller) may be directed to this address:
info@slackware.com

Or, send a check or money order to:

Slackware Linux, Inc.
1164 Claremont Drive
Brentwood, CA 94513
USA


Have fun! :^) I hope you find Slackware to be useful, and thanks
very much for your support of this project over the years.

Novi posao

Nakon privremenog kuriranja, moje civilno služenje vojnog roka poprimilo je novi oblik. Posle razgovora sa prof. dr Veljkom Milutinovićem dogovorili smo se da uskoro (od sledeće nedelje) počnem da preuzimam posao Conference Manager pri IPSI organizaciji od Maše, koja je na tom mestu do kraja meseca. Iako ne zvuči kao posao iz snova, bilo mi je zadovoljstvo da sarađujem sa koleginicama i kolegom iz Opšteg Odseka. Poseban pozdrav šefici Biljani, koja i dalje ostaje "komandant", tj. osoba direktno odgovorna za ljude koji civilno služe vojni rok na ETF-u.

A posle žurke - posao!

Što se tiče ljudi koje sam pitao a i mene - žurka je uspela.
Jedino mi je posle trebalo par dana da se odmorim i napunim baterije posle dve noći (ne)spavanja po 2-3 sata i posla posle toga. Zato me i nije bilo ovde. Ali vredelo je, zar ne?
Šta ti misliš? Slobodno ostavi utisak sa žurke ovde...

Vest sa civilke je da sam od 11. juna raspoređen kao kurir Opšteg odseka. "Da ne gubim vreme" dok se dogovorim sa prof. Milutinovićem... :) Posao se uglavnom svodi na raznošenje raznih dokumenata (do/od Rektorata, FON, Farmaceutskog,...).

Za kraj jedna slika naše otuđenosti:
Prolaz kod Zelenog Venca posle near-potopske kiše u utorak:
Gužva. Ljudi se vraćaju sa posla. Idu na autobuse. Guraju se od Brankove ka stanicama. Dolaze do izlaza kod pekare gde vide da je ceo prolaz poplavljen. Ćutke se okreću i vraćaju nazad, opet se gurajući sa ljudima koji ne znaju da je prolaz potopljen. Usput vide šta ima na "tezgama" možda i kupe neku majicu, čarape ili zeku. Ali nikom ne bi palo na pamet da kaže onima koji ne znaju da ne može da se prođe! Ni ja nisam nikome rekao. A prodavci mudro ćute i trljaju ruke...

Civil(izova)no na ETF

Najnovija vest je da civilno služim vojni rok na Elektrotehničkom fakultetu, samo još ne znam kod koga. Čekam 22. jun da se prof. Veljko Milutinović vrati u zemlju pa da se dogovorimo oko toga šta ću, kako i gde da radim.
U petak, 1. juna sam bio sa Anom na koncertu Đure Mornara u klubu Fest u Zemunu. Bilo je odlično veče!
U subotu 9. juna bi trebalo da idemo na prvi "Balanso na vodi" na splavu Plastic Jam ovog leta u organizaciji Nebojše Jazzmate-a.
A u nedelju 10. juna -- žurka! At my place! Everyone is invited!
Očekujte izveštaj u ponedeljak...

Ispit, "vojska",...

Dao sam prvi ispit (MIPS) posle pauze od 6-7 meseci! Nadam se da će niz da se nastavi u junskom roku... Činjenice da sam učio, kao i da me nešto zeza kabl za modem su doprinele malo ređem pisanju na blogu. Nadam se da ga niste zaboravili!
Od 5. juna krećem u "armiju", trebalo bi da budem na ETF, ali dok ne dobijem papirče u ruke (ponedeljak), ništa nije sigurno...
Započeo sam (poslovnu) saradnju sa prof. dr Zoranom Lj. Petrovićem sa Instituta za Fiziku. Trenutno se ona ogleda u održavanju njegovih kućnih računara, ali ima izgleda da se proširi i na naučnu saradnju. Više o tome kad bude nekih konkretnijih vesti.
U poslednje vreme ne vozim bicikl rekreativno nego samo do menze i nazad. Pre nedelju dana sam napravio turu Bežanija - PMF - Zemun - Bežanija. Bilo je zanimljivo! Inače, rekreativno se vozim putem koji vodi od Savskog keja (iza 44, 45 i 70-og bloka) ali uzvodno pored Save (ka Ostružnici). Najdalje što sam išao je bilo do Ostružničkog mosta (oko 10km od kraja keja). Ovih dana ću se provozati mojom ulicom (Vinogradskom) ka Surčinu, da vidim dokle ide i kakva je za vožnju. Kupio sam paktreger (već sam ga isprobao, zahvaljujući Ani), nove pedale (kakva razlika u odnosu na stare! mnogo bolje prijanjaju patike) i malu (skoro džepnu) pumpu koja odgovara i za klasične i za automobilske ventile.
Za vikend idem u ZR.
Što se tiče Višnje, ona nastavlja dobru tradiciju sa ispitima - upravo je položila elektrodinamiku.

Stigao sam iz ZR

Bio sam 23.04. i 24.04. u Zrenjaninu da sredim neke administrativne "pain-in-the-ass"-ove, a naravno i da obiđem friends&family (svelo se samo na family).

Doneo sam sa sobom bajk... Ubacio u bus - dole u "bunker". Prazan bus za Zadar u 18:45, ne ide preko Perleza, jedan od modernijih Autobanatovih, sa sve klimom, za samo 215din (što je 70% cene, za studente) + 30din peronska. Počinje da bude isplativ ovaj Autobanat :) Toliko su me prijatno iznenadili da sam ih častio čokoladom!

Višnja upravo dolazi iz Petnice i treba da požurim da je dočekam na stanici...

Početak i kraj

Upravo je započela moja blogerska karijera, a završila se ona u McCann Erickson Public Relations na poziciji pres klipera - započeta pre šest meseci. Povod za ovaj početak-kraj je isti - slobodno vreme. Sad ću moći više da se posvetim svojim prioritetima: fakultet, devojka, uživanje (u svemu i svačemu, sa svim i svakim) i ostalim, ne manje važnim :)
Angažovanje u University of New York in Belgrade (kao part-time web administrator i tehnička podrška) se nastavlja na (nadam se) obostrano zadovoljstvo :)

Stay tuned...
