Yesterday Google announced 64-bit version of Chrome. If you want to get one, you have to choose between Dev Channel and Canary channel for Windows 7 and 8 users.

I dare to suppose, that 64-bits builds of browser soon or later will be moved to the beta stage.
According to the developers, new version of Chrome is about 25% faster than the regular one. Furthermore, browser supports some features of Windows 8, for example High Entropy ASLR, which makes browse just a little bit safer.

I am sick of these topical articles on how to improve performance, motivation, and other nonsense. Why do people write them? To help those who are confused about yourself or for those who cannot concentrate. I do not think so.

The modern life dictates that everything should be done quickly, in order to achieve maximum efficiency. Certainly, you need to be very successful. You need to move to the goal every day, every hour, and every minute. Leaving all the unnecessary things behind and throwing all efforts to achieve a result. Otherwise there is no point in living.

Recently, many cloud storages were opened, hence there comes the question: What kind of cloud storages do we have and where we can store our files?
So I have done some search and made a list of such storages:

Baidu, Bitcasa, Box.net, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft SkyDrive, SpiderOak, Wuala.

At the end of the article I put a comparison table.

"I can send the IP packet to Europe faster than I can send a pixel to the screen. How f’d up is that?" John Carmack asked in his Tweeter. His tweet caused a broad resonance in the community, so Carmack explained that to measure the lag on Sony HMZ-T1 analog display he used a program that changes the contents of the buffer by pressing a button on the controller, and a screen with the video camera 240 fps. Then he counted the number of frames between pressing the button and changing pixel.

For lazy people: the main ideas are in bold.
For less curious people: you can read the whole article.
For very curious people: I wrote not much, but only the essential things. For more information, use other sources.

UPD: Basically, this article was written from my memory and notes, but here are a few books that just influenced me:
- 40 Sleep Hacks: The Geek's Guide to Optimizing Sleep.
- Kacper M. Postawski - How To Sleep Less ...

imageMy first attempt to make money was successful. I have made a website offering instructions for solving customer’s problem. At first I was trying to sell some advice about the wonderful results and the obvious benefits of buying instructions online. But no one wanted to believe and to take risks buying that. I intuitively understood that a part of the instruction should be given free of charge, so the potential buyers could try it out. They tested it and saw the results, so they decided to buy the entire instructions for solving the problem.

I remember when I was standing in line with the older people in the offices of Russian Post. How I filled out the bunch of different payment forms for the potential buyers who will buy my instructions. Also, I conducted a forum for the customers who already got my instructions.

Previous articles about the icons have generated a lot of interesting questions about the drawing technique, namely mini-illustrations. I will try to uncover this simple mystery :)
I am not going to give you a detailed description of that, because this would require writing a series of lessons, but I want to share a common principle.

I took the icon from the current project as an example.
Rizzoma is a collaborative tool, an alternative to Google-wave.
During working on the website was born the idea of making beautiful icons for each block with the benefits. The snail symbolizes the context messages and essentially it is an advanced symbol @.

Drawing
Usually working on an icon starts with a pencil drawing, but this time here are enough inspiring Fast snail images. It was decided to make own version of the beautiful and charming snail with a turbine.
