Kia is here!

After only 1 week of waiting, the black Kia Cee’D has finally arrived!

For more photos see: Kia Cee’D.

Well, I have driven about 300 KM already and all I can say is that the car is really nice. comfortable, spacious, pretty silent, great sound system, etc.

Now I only need to get used to it and to the “infernal” driving here in Cluj….

Weaving through the Shadows

As every soul stares into the void, as every candle reflects the light of the far stars, so we are alone with God when we turn towards the inner Dark or Light.
How can we be alone when two presences are involved?… We cannot, when we are with God we are no more, there is only the infinite existence which does not think, does not ponder, does not judge… We just are. Sublime infinity.

So, in a way, I return to my old topic of stopping the mill… When mind ends there is the abyss, the final answer.
When mind ends, you cease to be a peon of other minds… And in the beginning we walk alone on the no-mind path. Buddha will only show you the way, will point you to the Sanctuary, but you/I/us have to step on the path alone, there is no hand-shaking and outside rewards.

And, if you meet Buddha on the path then … slay him 🙂 The path is the absence of experience, so any God you meet there you have to pass past it. If you ever reach the end of the path then the ultimate truth is revealed. So far, so close, a step in the right direction, a witch’s flight in the night and the darkest shadow may turn into blinding light… or vice versa.

As Osho said, it doesn’t matter in the end if you use the Light or the Darkness to silence the ego, the mind, the great deceiver. All that matters is to do it and when the ocean is still there is only pure reflection. And shadows will dance on the mirror.

For me the darkness is more appealing to silence the ego. It’s hard to meditate with eyes wide open in the light 🙂

So, good luck everyone and just stop… the… mill.

… and listen Trobar de Morte.

SC2 Beta – I’m in!

Well, I’m in. The Mighty Beta.
The sad part is that I don’t have much time to play and not always the right mood… I lost quite a few games to much more experienced players.
Other than that the game is great, I will manage somehow to get it when it “sheeps” :).

The funny part is that I got my invite on an old account (initial US WoW account….). And a few days ago I even got another invite to give it to a friend, hope I made L happy. /././

Now a bit about the game… Well, how to put it, it’s Starcraft — reloaded. Seems much like SC1, but with upgraded graphics, units and stuff. The feeling is almost the same, furious gameplay, great tactical possibilities. And it’s polished, oh yea, even in this beta phase the game “stinks” “Blizzard TM” all over. I can understand now the philosophy at the Blizz HQ… “when it’s done”.
The graphics are not, how to put it, “amazing”, just better than WC3. Overall the visuals are pretty and supporting the gameplay and the general idea of the game.
The sound, well, just try to click fast on a unit and … you will laugh :). The music, the effects, the voices – great quality and implementation.
The gameplay, as expected is kind of tuned for competition, e-sport, but in tune with my expectations for single-player game.

General impression? Game on! A worthy successor of SC1, this one will make history as well.

Back to playing now…. aaa work 🙂

Small update here…. I got 6 keys to give to friends. Talking about luck. Only 1 left now. Anyone? 🙂
