v6.2.3 - moving along, a point increase at a time

Κοιτάω για διδακτορικό...

Πριν περίπου ένα μήνα αποφοίτησα από το πρόγραμμα εφαρμοσμένης γλωσσολογίας, παίρνοντας άριστο βαθμό στις εξαγωγικές εξετάσεις.  Πραγματικά δεν το περίμενα να πάρω τόσο υψηλό βαθμό.  Μερικοί συμφοιτητές άρχισαν να

Prince of Persian :: Completed! [Spoilers]

This past weekend I ended up finishing Prince of Persia for the xbox 360.  I remember playing my first Prince of Persia game on my godmother's 286 running DOS 3 (I think) and Windows 3 for workgroups (wow!).  Back then, as this time around, I ended up killing the prince countless times! It's a good thing that I had Elika around (this time) to save me from myself.When I got Prince of Persia:

Earth Final Conflict [Spoilers]

Last year I had an opportunity to start watching an old favorite series, Earth Final Conflict (a Gene Roddenberry story), again. I never really got into the final seasons of the show when it originally aired because I had both work and loads of undergraduate homework to do, so by the time I got home the show was almost over.In any case, having just finished watching the show in its entirety, I think

Bioshock 2 | completed! [spoilers]

One of the games that I bought used (or cheap) over the Christmas break was Bioshock 2. Having played, and really enjoyed, the original Bioshock I deviced to get this game. I also decided to focus on this game (and Prince of Persia) over my vacation as I was interested in learning what happened to Rapture after the events of Bioshock.Bioshock 2 was quite an engaging game. The game mechanics were quite

Greeks invented everything!

OK, this video is all in Greek, but it is pretty humorous nevertheless.It's an excerpt from Radio Arvila, a Greek comedy show (from what I gather), where the commentators are making fun of the "everything worthwhile was invented by Greeks" crowds (at least that's what I got out of it). If you know some Greek you will laugh. If you don't know Greek, you will most likely laugh at "Autocad" and "Facepapyrus"

The younger generation, and old tech

Pretty humorous considering that this technology isn't even (or is just approaching) 30 years old!I wonder what people will think of these items in another 20 years. It should also be noted that some of these are culturally dependent - I had no 8-track players in Greece, the only reason I knew that they existed was because of relatives that had lived in the US.

Η μέρα μετά του αγίου ποτέ ήρθε;

Εδώ και κάτι χρόνια τρέχω να βγάλω την Ελληνική υπηκοότητα, κάτι που νόμιζα πως είχα ήδη αφού τελείωσα γυμνάσιο στην Ελλάδα και οι γονείς μου ήταν Έλληνες, αλλά τέλος πάντων (οι παλιές καλές μέρες του «είμαι φοβερός και το
