Трудности перевода :)

Хотя перевод-то как раз нормальный, но интересно что они переводили?

Almost all doors in Italy, old and modern, have the handle in the center. I wonder where that tradition came from?

Someone's beaten up boots on the steps of our apartment in Corniglia.

Venice met us with a flood.

Floods are rare this time of the year, but I wanted to see one and my wish was granted.

What a three weeks difference would do...

Or what a picture is like with and without a dog.

I made screenshots of questions from California electronic tax payment system. Who comes up with these?

"Where do you want to travel, but will probably never go?" -- WTF?

I honestly did not know what to pick and how to answer. Even if I pick a sort of a simple one "the street name where I grew up" -- the street name is in Russian.

It's been a while since I played a video game until this far into the night... but Life Is Strange is absolutely worth the time and the headache. What a game, what a finale!

A couple of weekends worth of work just got approved and went live on Amazon. Yay!
Guess what this is? It resulted in forty new hand-drawn levels, exclusive for Amazon Underground version of Slitherlink.

Based on squares and diagonals they look deceptively simple. But they are challenging. I think even small grids will give you a pause or two.

Give them a try!

The future is here...

I believe I just received a robo-call that tried to mimic a real human being. Pleasant and cheerful human being. It greeted, responded to a greeting from me, then started the conversation offering their services. It stopped when I spoke, OK'ed, then continued to ask the same question again in the same tone of voice. The question assumed a yes or no answer. When instead of the answer I said "I am not interested in that service" it just went silent, as if not knowing what to do next. The call did not disconnect. I imagine it started to flash some red light for a human to pick up the phone and intervene.

If it was a human -- it was the most bizarre sounding and inefficient sales person ever.

If it was a robot -- I am impressed, but horrified for what the future holds.

It actually makes sense if you think about it... Cold calls are heavily scripted. Half the time even humans making them sound like mindless drones. Why not replace them with Cortanas and Siris of the world?
