coca cola, is it
I need nothing to say about the drink, except that I've been trying to collect "coca-cola" written in different languages. Did some searches on the net about this, but with very little results. Here it is - the picture.
It's 2088 A.D. and Lunar Presidential Voting is about to begin. On Earth, Uranium is missing from 30 cities across the globe. Zorpians from their homeland are eyeing the rich mineral deposits on Luna; where there has been human settlement for some decades now. There's been forecast of war with Zorpians...blah blah... The story is something like this, I hope you got the point... for which I've prepared some imaginary futuristic news for some daily newspapers. The first one on the series is for The Kathmandu Post. P.S. This work is for fun and recreation, and is in no way intenteded for the mass as authentic.
This post is taken from an issue of PCWorld of 2009, probably March. I think its relevance, today, is more than ever. So here it is, to save you tons of hassles: Are you tired of having to register on a free website just to read a news article or view some pictures of your relatives? Rather than registering on such sites (and risking a barrage of annoying spam), many people forget about the news item or put off seeing how their nieces and nephews are doing until their next holiday.
But I have an easy way to get members-only content without enduring the hassle of signing up for an account. Whenever family and friends send me links to registration-required sites, I turn to BugMeNot (bugmenot.com) to slip past most of these requirements. BugMeNot is a free site that stockpiles user-generated account log-ins and passwords so that users don’t have to provide their own personal info.
Go to the BugMeNot website and type in the URL of the site that you’d like to log in to. BugMeNot will return…
This is a fictitious conversation among Picard and his crew immediately after being confronted by a Borg ship.
>> Captain: "Mr. LaForge, have you had any success with your attempts at finding a weakness in the Borg? And Mr. Data, have you beenable to access their command pathways?" Data: "Yes, Captain. In fact, we found the answer by searching through our archives on late Twentieth-century computingtechnology." LaForge shows Picard the computing history from the archives in a monitor, and pauses the presentation at the Microsoft logo. LaForge: "As you can see, captain, the answer lies in Microsoft". Captain: "What the hell is 'Microsoft'?" Data: "Allow me to explain. We will send thisprogram, for some reason called 'Windows', through the Borgcommand pathways. Once inside their root command unit, it will begin consuming system resources at an unstoppable rate." Captain: "But the Borg have the ability to adapt. Won'…
