Boy, I really love Unix command line. The whole concept of it is so powerful yet so simple. Each time I need to do something I choose shell to make it work. EVERY TIME.

I really miss Monkey Radio (

Is there anything like this anymore?

It was somewhere around 2005 when I listened to it for the first time. I was using beloved Real Player to stream it.

I’ve learned about so many great artists over that time. I still listen to them almost every day. I guess this radio has shaped my music taste. I’m very gratful for that.

I wish someday someone would bring it back to life in one form or another.

Just finished “The Making of Prince of Persia” and unfortunately must say that the book/journal is unnecessarily too long. The first part (about Prince 1) was cool and insightful, but the rest was pretty much about nothing really interesting…

Found a very interesting album yesterday:

LUM — Homo Infinitus

A cover of album Homo Infinitus by LUM

I feel inspired reading books about “old times” in the programming world. It’s so refreshing to have a chance to take a look behind the scenes of such legendary creations as UNIX, Doom, Quake or Prince of Persia.

Here are the books I’m talking about:

  • “UNIX: A History and a Memoir” by Brian W. Kernighan
  • “The Making of Prince of Persia: Journals 1985-1993” by Jordan Mechner
  • “Masters of Doom: How Two Guys Created an Empire and Transformed Pop Culture” by David Kushner
