I'd like to tell you about the wonders of "Hungarian cottage cheese" or "körözött" (cca. circled) as we call it.
It's cottage cheese (cow or sheep or the mix of both, my favourit is a 50-50 mix but I usually eat pure cow's) mixed with red paprika powder, caraway/cumin, fine chopped onion, salt, butter and/or sour cream. I like it with butter and very little sour cream.
Eat it as a spread with tomatoes, radishes, paprika etc.

Blogpost. I have half a box of Twinings tea I only drink it occasionally as it's considered a more expensive and finer brand. I noticed however I crossed the expiration date. The tea's still fine so I decided I drink it fast. Now I drink 1,5 l Twinings Earl Gray on daily basis. Feels good, man.

Because kvas tastes too "thick" to me to be refreshing, too intense taste. I don't feel that it quenches my thirst. In general I feel most soft drinks too sweet to be pleasant. The sugar I add to the mix is just for counterbalancing the sourness of the lemon.

>very sweet and very carbonated, pretty much slavic coca-cola

There are two wide and loose categories of kvass, "sweet" that is used mostly for drinking, and "salty" that is used for drinking and okroshka (although first one often used for it too). Sweet is dark, salty is white.

Sadly, salt kvass rarely produced by companies, only few years ago it started to became available here in most shops, for example. But i often seen homebrewed salt kvass, it is very good.

I wrote in the vidya thread about how I found Anno 1602 on PC mag's CD and that gave me an idea. I tried to look for my few CD's acquired the same way but I couldn't find mine however I found others I got some buddy of mine once. Actually he gave me a roll of 50 CD's, these are partly PC mag's appendices, partly pirated material, partly other stuff, like GNU/Linux distributions or Nero disks.
I found for example Baldur's Gate II pirated from somewhere also an original factory made Shadows of Amn expansion disk beside it. Pirated NHL 2002 but original Alone in the Dark 3. Nice. I went through all of these once long ago, I can see my scribbled notes on the CD's what works what not, but never took the time to use any of these. I'm not intend to. At least not now.

Right now the more interesting stuff is on the PC mag CDs. I'm gonna review one here with you, Bernd.
If you'd like please post your findings if you own such CD's or DVD's. I'm sure Bernd has some secretly in the corned of his basement.

This sci-fi column has a second article, the #100 celebratory issue. The editor announces that SF NEWS will cease in this form and become a webpage. It seems they merged with solaria.hu (which is now galaktika.hu). I'm not sure entirely a bit hazy their phrasing some background knowledge would be needed.
I'm gonna make a selection of the contents, trying to highlight the more interesting tidbits.
Battletech Days was organized by the Hungarian BattleTech Alliance with a board, card and computer game competition. I haven't known BT was this popular.
New Dune tv-show or moar liek a miniseries was made with six episodes. Director: John Harrison; Prince Leto: William Hurt; Paul Atreides: Alec Newman. Was this completed? I've not seen it. Oh, yes it was, just checked imdb.
Wings of Tomorrow. Again a new tv program, in this case on Spectrum. From the times when documentaries weren't reality tv-shows. It's about the present and future of aeroplane manufacturing. They present us such examples as Edwards and Zhukovsky air bases or B-2 and Su-37 aircrafts and give voice people concerned such as Yevgeny Frolov and Paul Metz test pilots.
New dangers are lurking in the cyberspace: certain websites use information gathering "web bugs" to collect data on the users then they sell it to advertising companies. Now Advertisers, government bureaucrats and lawyers specialized in data privacy are looking into the case because it's very concerning and problematic. I'm sure they just sensationalize this and errything will be just fine.
Exoplanets are real, third of the human DNA is decoded and new dinosaur was found in Oklahoma.

Audio editing
It's an html document (picrel is the whole article) about Rebirth 2.0.1 which is an emulation of two Roland TB-303 analog synthesizer, a TR-808 and a TR-909 drum machines. It seems it's the end of a series on this topic. The columnist (called dr Rigor Mortis) gives us a demo and a patch of this application, also some pattern editor and mods and conversion programs.
It seems like a review on the rhythm section.

What's the word on Linux in early 2000?
- Linux for beginners
- Igloo FTP Pro 1.0
- News from the World

They are nice to start with some advice how a beginner should start his adventure with Linux. That's how:
1. get a book
2. if you are a masochist then start installing a Linux without help
3. no Debian or Slackware
4. recommended: COREL Linux or WinLinux2000 (don't forget: even Ubuntu needs 4 more years to it's release)
5. use KPPP after the installation of KDE as connecting failure with PPP is a frequent problem
6. if browsing the nets only works with typing the IP into the browser but fails with domains then you forgot to set DNS, edit /etc/resolv.conf in this matter set the nameservers
7. don't worry, Linux is Y2K compatible...
8. problematic packages: PINE pre-4.0 (but everyone uses MUTT anyway) and pre 8.0 TCL/TK

Igloo FTP Pro 1.0 is here soon. It will be a shareware that can be used for 30 days without restrictions. (Except that time limit...) It do everything an FTP program can moreover it's comfy and nice. Also it has FTX support for mirroring stuff between FTP servers without dling to our machine (or some such).
You can convert rpms to debs with ALIEN as an Igloo 0.9.8 was enclosed in the Linux dir of the CD.

That's all for the Columns. Next: Outside World
Turned out it's just a fancy name for movie reviews. Some good stuff tho: Fight Club, Sixth Sense, Go, The Messenger: the Story of Joan of Arc (we like Milla, don't we), End of Days and Brokedown Palace. Not really reviews rather recommendations I suppose. It's time for some bloody business on the Seven Seas. Arr.

Virus Defense
They start with a "Good to Know" where they lay stress on prevention. Also they appended a trial version of McAfee which starts up with boot and resides in the RAM. They recommend to get one full copy of that prog. However the CD comes with a new Dat_File every month which can be copied into the trial version's folder and used indefinitely.
They also offer another application: Sophos Anti-Virus for Windows 95/98. Which one was better I wonder.

This is all for this disk. Bernd, I'm still owe you with the Quake demos and the some screens of Chaos Ultra and maybe some review on it too.
I decided to record only parts of the demos as a full 10 min video is just too large. And boring actually. It's just for giving some taste of the stuff so that long is unnecessary also.

Precision, speed, strength and knowing what's up. First dude really thought he gets intimidated, the second is an amateur the third really can stand some KO weight punches. Something is odd with that fighter dude punches and his legwork they seem incorrect somehow. Might be a boxer (but an odd one) or he might have some other training but sure he's seen some fights. Nevertheless he reads the situation well, reacts fast and doesn't let the other side take back the initiative with mouthing in so he can continue the negotiation from that prestigious position of strength that few punches gave him.

from your contry or wherever

the arbitral tribunal finally announced rulings regarding border disputes between slovenia and croatia. however, croatia claims they will ignore those rulings because they don't see them as legitimate ever since a year ago when some phone calls between one of the members of the tribunal and some irrelevant slovenian official were leaked. however the arbitration was accepted as part of ultimatum to croatia regarding eu membership.


besides the sea border dispute, most land border disputes were results of anomalies where one republic or a municipality governed land that was nominally on the other side of the republic border.

see pictures in article. it was ruled out that:
1) gulf of piran belongs to slovenia (except for a narrow strip next to croatian coast, as opposed to border going along the centreline) and the sea border continues straight out to italian waters; slovenia doesn't get a direct contact with international waters but instead a 4.6km wide corridor is assigned inside croatian waters that slovenia gets full access to
2) land border follows the dragoña river; this means that a couple of houses (most notably, joško joras, who wrote "here is slovenia too" on his house in 2002 and had some publicised breakouts with border officials) and fields, altogether 113ha that were part of slovene municipalities and were infrastructurally connected to slovenia, stay on croatian side
3) 70ha of forest on snežnik plateau forests that were part of hungary before ww1 but was anomalously reassigned to slovenia during treaty of rapallo for no reason whatsoever, remain part of slovenia
4) 335ha large piece of clay around village of drage (northern bela krajina, foothills of gorjanci), mostly forests, that was anomalously part of croatian cadadstres goes to croatia. this is right next to the worst example of bordergore on slovene border, however the ruling does nothing to resolve that. such cases.
5) the army objects on trdina peak (in gorjanci) that were seized by slovene forces during independence war get split following the internal republic borders along the ridge within yugoslavia; the radio tower is therefore on slovenian side while the barracks on croatian
6) the border along mura river follows its old riverbet from the 19th century and not the modern-day regulated course (leaving a larger part of land on croatian side)

croatia is expected to send army on its borders and slovenia is expected to go crazy on border control to prevent tourists from reaching croatia until croatia gives a statement regarding agreeing with the outcome

I've already mentioned the book titled On Killing - The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society by Dave Grossman (Lt. Col. of US Army). It gave some food for thought and I'm planning to write some of my speculation.

But what did the author write? Let's summarize.
He starts with the observation that most men has a natural resistance to kill (only 2% of men - those who have "predisposition toward aggressive psychopathic personality" - can go on killing without becoming a nervous wreck). This resistance is so high that even at times that our life is directly threatened (like others shoot at us) still difficult to overcome it. This resistance is the reason why infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years - with the exception of machine guns - despite the fact that infantry weaponry (rifles) are reliable and accurate enough to cause massive losses among the enemy.
The author gives examples and sources, such as a Prussian experiment in the late 18th century, several reports and notices from several authors during 19-20th centuries (American, French, Israeli etc.), and an interesting work by a US Army historian who (and his coworkers) made mass interviews with fighting GIs during and after WWII. Also he cites his own conversation with veterans of WWII and Vietnam.
He gives new ideas on what's really happening on the battlefield. He compliments the widely known fight-or-flight model with two other options: in reality the soldiers can fight, posture, submit or flight. And most soldiers choose the second option.
Then he ponders on what enables killing (I'm gonna write more about this later) and how modern (post-WWII) armies achieve this. Then he compares these methods with the ways of contemporary mass media. His conlcusion is (after pointing out the exponential rise of violent crimes) that mass media has an undesirable effect on society.

What interesting for me is this resistance, and the enabling part. These things are actually give an entirely new way of looking warfare, and how and why battles were won.
For example the part officers (the demanding authority to kill) play in the enabling. When people (professional historians, history pros and other armchair generals) comparing the Hellenic phalanx with Roman manipulus and why the latter was more successful they compare everything but the officers. In the phalanx he's only one among those who stand in line and do the poking with pikes, but a Roman officer is one outside the formation and pressuring the soldiers to kill. It makes a huge difference if someone shouting in your ears "stab! stab! stab!" and generally pressuring you to kill. Especially if this one person is an exemplary one, a veteran whose skill in killing surpasses all the others in that particular unit. However noone talks about this because noone thinks about it.

I'll continue this sometimes, maybe only next weekend, we'll see. If you wish to read the book you can probably find it on libgen.

>infantry fire was so embarrassingly ineffective in the past 300 years
I'm not so sure about accurancy of rifles in 1700-until breach loading became popular in military.

Hm I'm seeing a few flaws in that experiment. To kill one soldier sometimes you need just one hit. Meanwhile in one salvo one soldier (that on front line) could get multiple hits, dying but also serving as a shield for those behind him. Also ball could have gone between soldiers landing somewhere where it have done little harm, while on a 100 metres long target it would show a hit. Line infatry didn't neccesarily stand in super tight arm to arm formations, right? Also also you will get different results while doing a prepared experiment in calm conditions then in real battle when bullets fly everywhere, people around you are dying violenty, gunpowder is gettin wet, your weapon is failing, officers are nowhere to be seen and you just shat in your pants.
So I'm not totally convinced about those number differences.

I'm a bit late to discussion and I haven't read entire thread yet so please forgive if it was already adressed.

Bernd 08/10/2017 (Thu) 11:05:10 [Preview] No. 9514 del
Another problems I see there.
1) Black powder weapons fail sometimes (as any weapon tbh). And when they do it takes fuckload of time to make it werk again. Often it would mean weapon is out of this fight. Maybe breech-loaded rifle could be cleaned more easily, but for muzzle-loaded gun it's a huge broblem.
2) When in formation where everyone is shooting, there's a lot of smoke and light and noise, you could sometimes not notice that your rifle didn't fire and load it again after pulling the trigger.
3) It seems there was much more discipline in firing in those times. No fire at will whenever you think it's ok, everyone is loading at the same rate, firing is done according to officer instructions, so no firing as fast as possible and no grabbing weapons from the dead.

Bernd 08/13/2017 (Sun) 09:00:07 [Preview] No. 9552 del
While all points are valid they aren't contributing so much to explain the difference.
On the other hand I left out such facts as in practice the opposing forces many times fired at each other from much closer distance then 70 m (sometimes they fired shots after shots from a literal few steps inside a room without any result - only hoping the other will forced into submission with superior posturing).
Or while I took under consideration of artillery fire contributing the sum of losses in my calculation if I remember right I downplayed it's effectiveness (maybe to third instead of half), moreover I did not calculated the role of grenadiers who were the most effective troops of the infantry. These soldiers weren't equipped with just rifle/musket but with grenades which was so successful weapon that eventually all infantry troops were equipped with that (rendering "grenadier" to a simple title used to elite troops). We can't calculate how much percentage of the total casualties were caused by grenades but we know this was the preferred killing method of infantry during WW I and II (a WW II battalion used up about 500 grenades on a good fighting day). Why? Because it's easier to lob an iron knob (or and iron knob on a stick) into the vicinity of the enemy and waiting for fate to run it's course then actually target a fellow man, pull the trigger then watch him fall.
Also don't forget that the times of line infantry while the grenadiers lobbed grenades at the enemy lines the other troops stood and fired on the enemy... from grenade throwing range which is somewhere between 20 and 30 m.
All in all with rifles infantry killed much less then what I calculated.

Also you're not late I'm going to continue I'm just more interested in the content of the CD right now.

Yeah, last update in February. And yeah, it looks like Anno. I might give it a try.

The gameplay is straightforward, once you know what to do just rinse and repeat.

I remember, my first character reached old age, turned into necromancy to prolong his life because my son was a retard and wouldn't carry the business and shortly after that moment I lost interest.

Also I'd like to say that I tried Dark Messiah and it's really fun game. Story is meh, characters are meh, but the gameplay is great. Fighting feels a bit like Skyrim except it's much better done here, also it's not open world rpg but action game, so levels are this corridor type like Call of Duty. So I guess you could say it's a mix of those both games.
There are various tools how to destroy your enemies, and without using environment like randomly placed spikes fights can be really tough. Of course the best, most fun and most overpowered is the kick, hence sometimes game is called "Orc kicking simulator". Use it as much as you can.
I really recommend this game for Bernd.

Not ordinary people are frequently coocoo for some level. Philosophers (not contemporary) weren't the typical people of their age so he might had been even autist.
However judging a man without the context of the age and place surrounding him can lead us onto the wrong path.
Also maybe he was just overcompensating for something or had a simple OCD.
