Entire site is revamped.

New stuff - services (still a lot to do here). Goodies moved there.

Pages designed to fit the content, not the other way around. See About and Photos. Posts will have specific design, when appropriate.

Things might break, go haywire. Usually it will look just good.

More soon; now off to 10 days of grapes, vineyard and wine making.

CardroomSupply.com - web design review

I don’t think I ever played poker extensively. I remember playing Raub a lot few summers, a very simple and addictive hungarian game of cards. And that’s about it.

Thus you can imagine that I never needed a professional poker furniture. Guys from Rounders would probably have a thing or two to say on it, but not me.

Thus, I’m not a guy who would be a customer of CardroomSupply.com nor I can give you a review on the goods and services they provide.

What I can review is the web site through which all these beauties are sold. Full disclosure: this is payed review through ReviewMe.com service.

F1 spy scandal

I have not written much about F1 this season, which is rather strange when my favourite team is dominating the championship and their two drivers have the sort of relationship Senna and Prost had when they were driving in the McLaren.

However, after the WMC decision last night, I feel I need to make my stance on this. It’s really simple: it is absolutely stupid, unfounded and unfair decision.

If McLaren was really found guilty, they should have been thrown out, not just this year, but also for the remaining years for which the current rules apply. Since that is not the case, I can only conclude that WMC did not have enough evidence but have to do something. Ferrari was whining and fuming for months, that idiot Briatore just couldn’t keep his big mouth shut, everyone was crying thief.

And they fined McLaren $100 million, minus the money lost out of this year’s money share and effectively shortened McLaren’s budget for the next year for at least 25%. Of course Ferrari whiners are happy - the losers will win the biggest cut of the money and they will have excuses why are they so weak compared to McLaren this year.

I will repeat it, because it is so simple: if they are guilty, do not let them race anymore. Period. Since they are still racing, they are not guilty. Fining McLaren in this unprecedented way makes them look like cheaters. And if that is the case, letting them still race then is like letting doped bikers to continue racing. It is so stupid and idiotic decision that I can’t believe they made it.

Just think: two prime suspects in all this are Nigel Stepney and Mike Coughlan, and they were not asked anything - the only ones speaking were McLaren stuff. How in the hell is that possible, if it wasn’t for the sole desire to punish McLaren no matter what.

I am firmly with Dennis and Haug on this. I have to say this for the who knows what time: Max Mosley and his charade of the governing body are complete idiots and the sooner they leave motor sport the better will all be.

Photographs

I have added a new link under About section in the navigation - ‘My photographs’. I have used Flickr in the past (and still visit frequently) but never could get myself to pay for a Pro account. I’m just not into this social networking stuff.

I prefer to keep the photos on my own server. I will be slowly adding more and more photos there. Currently Aleksa rules that space and probably always will :)

Aside from his shots, I uploaded 233 images from our Paris trip in April - hope you like them.
