Oh My God.

Georgia started that war? Do you agree? South Ossetia declared itself as independent of Georgia many years ago. Afaik it's an area only as big as the Majorca isle in the Mediterranean Sea. There live about 150.000 people if I'm not mistaken. They're a mostly Russians.

K the facts are cleared this far.

Now during the Olympics one of the worlds biggest and still one of the most powerfulst man Vladimir Putin is in Bejing on the summer olympics. The new president of Russia Dmitri Medwedew is young and under the influence of Putin, we could say he is his poodle or marionette. Georgia thought Russia is weakend and Medwedew couldn't handle such a situation without Putin and wouldn't react if they invade South Ossetia to annex them again. Against their will.

They were wrong. Russia was prepared to protect their Population. Actually Ossetia is independet but most of these people turn towards Russia. Now the Russians are reinvading S. Ossetia and chase away the inferior troups of Georgia. With the consequence of many colleteral damages :cry:.

I dread to think that this the start of WW 3.

It reminds me even more of the 6 day war between Egypt and Israel...

Just my 2 cents.

Overkill, you can have your own opinion. I know that I'm right. 8)

Quite, the opposite, Max. I don't think Georgia started it. But Georgia provoked Russia, not much, but they did. Since Georgia wasn't in NATO for the time, Russia saw a good opportunity to commence an assault. It was more of a great opportunity since most of the World was dedicated to the Olympics thus it would take time for the countries to recover from the shock while Russia had 'free hands' to bombard Georgia. Let's say that Russia is still living in his dream to repeat history and unite the 'Great Empire'. I do believe that all this fuzz started with Kosovo's independence since Russia promised to take their troops out of there, but they actually didn't. And then the jet fuzz when Russia didn't want to admit that those were their planes .. and now this.

As for the opinion part, we both can't be wrong because these are 'our' opinions. :lol: One of the other ironic parts is that Russia tends to 'make up' their news and blackmail other countries.



Yes, I'm a fan. ;]

IBM hasn't made the ThinkPads for years. Lenovo has been doing it. Just recently, they've dropped the IBM from them, which was just an artifact of the original manufacturing agreement, anyway.

Aside from that, while cool, I'll stick with my desktop.


Do not click the picture above. It will take you to my site, and I don't need the anxiety.

Dang that's awesome! I knew this kind of stuff existed but I didn't expect it to be free.

I'll do it, I think i can learn from you.

Is this stuff safe though? I mean : it's just a desktop viewer... right?

I have Photoshop Education installed on my computer at the moment (Because I support Adobe software, i didn't want to Pirate CS3 Extended, and my Mom got this from her work)

I don't know how much has changed from that to CS3, so you could mess with it if you want to. (Now that i think about it, you have all of your brushes and stuff on yours, so it probably wouldn't work).
