Today I went to Korošica with our dog Ben. It was quite cold so we took only some pictures.

Me and my friend Dejan have a Formula 1 bet every year. The last season he won (Alonso had so much better car then Schumacher), so he chose a restaurant and my responsibility was to drive and pay. He chose Gostilna Avsenik in Begunje. The food was so delicious, that is why you will not see any pictures, only the road we took.

Do you know how to use:
- Bugzilla
- Microsoft SharePoint
- Flowr
- Agile
- Wiki
- DocREG
- Git

They all became part of my company's life in time, but lately we are just adding them, but their purpose is only new name and to confuse the people and make them do triple work. Two of them would be more then enough.

My knee was swollen for quite some time now, so I visited my doctor. I have an infection, so I received broad-spectrum antibiotic, Ciprobay 500 mg. I hope it will work, beacuse my skiing vacation will come soon.

My drugs for 10 days

Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti, head of Slovenian National Party, about Slovenian leaders. He said we have ignorants, junkies and homosexuals in our government, basically people that are interested only in themselves and not for the country.

Today I sold WD World Edition II 1000GB for 90€. Bye bye my old home network storage.



Today was a hockey day. Two biggest Slovenian teams met in Ljubljana, in Hala Tivoli. Since I am not from Ljubljana I am always a fan of the teams that come from the other cities of Slovenia, in this case Jesenice. HK Acroni Jesenice is the hockey club in that town since 1948 and they were playing against HDD Olimpija Ljubljana.


This was their 435th match in their long rival history and 41st match in their current league. Both teams are playing in extended Austrian Hockey League, called also EBEL.

Our guys in traditional red and white colors

Both teams started quite nervously and after 18 minutes, their player Aleš Mušič scored, but not even a minute passed and Acroni Jesenice player Žiga Jeglič suceeded to even the score. After 20 minutes of game, the score was 1:1.

In next twenty minutes the game was better, especially our team. We saw three goals, Pavlin scored for home team, but our guys, Werner and Nolan, put two pucks in the home goal. So after two thirds it was 3:2 for HK Acroni Jesenice.


The fastest team sport on the planet

Last third of the game our guys dominated, but they didn't score. And last seconds of the game, HDD Olimpija Ljubljana tried without a goalkeeper and they were lucky, they scored 2 seconds before the end of the match, Higgins was the scorer. Score, 3:3. So they played 5 minutes of extra time, 4 players on 4 and since there was no goal, penalty shooting was on the menu. After three rounds, both teams only scored once, so every mistake could be fatal. 5th round was the final round and HK Acroni Jesenice started to celebrate their victory.

Penalty shooting

Mušič 18., Pavlin 26., Higgins 60.; Jeglič 18., Werner 22., Nolan 35.

It was a very nice day, almost without a cloud so we decided to go in to the mountains. Our destination was Zelenica. Zelenica is our local ski resort, but it is still not working due to lack of snow.

Today I made a portable USB DVD unit. I took an old power supply, an old DVD unit and I bought IDE 2 USB converter on Buyincoins for 2.8$.

Used components
Since the power supply doesn't work without power button I soldered green wire to black one and disconnected the fan.

Tuning the power supply
And the next step was to put things together.

Today was our flight day, so we said goodbye to Burcu and went to the Kadıköy bus station. Like always we were there just some minutes before departure. After 40 minutes we were already at the Sabiha Gökçen International Airport. Although we had more alcohol in our bags than it is allowed we passed all controls. The flight was a little bit boring and soon we landed in Vienna International Airport. No problems again. We took the train again to our car and 4h journey to Ljubljana was ahead of us. At around 18h we came to Ljubljana, and I moved to my Hyundai. It started after a week of cold and moisture without any problem. Great car. After one more hour I was at home, excited, very excited, because I had to work next day.

So another Turkey journey was behind us and again it was very good.


After a long long time I was not completely destroyed on 1st of January, but I still can't decide if that is good or bad.
Since people here don't celebrate much they also worked quite normally today and also our departure day will be here soon, so we decided to do some shopping and exploring Asian side of Istanbul. First we went to local bazaar.

Stuff in the bazaar in Moda
We continued our way to confectionery Baylan, established in 1923. We had a very delicious desert, called Kup Griye.
Even I liked it
We went to the Dolmuş place and he took us to Fenerbahçe, where we had a nice walk by the sea and in some of the rich parts there.


 Walking in Fenerbahçe area

It was time to taste the burger in a Burger house. They are very expensive, but also very very good. For example, Chef special burger costed 22TL (11€).

 Burger in McDonalds... if you believe in fairytales

After the most expensive burger in my life we went into hamam. It's a very nice thing, since you can go to sauna, then they clean you up and massage your body.

Very old hamam
And the last thing we did in Istanbul was smoking the water pipe, called nargile in Turkish language.
Banana and coconut in milk nargile
In the evening we watched two movies. First one was The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. The second one was James Cameron's Avatar.


Last day of year 2010. Will it be also the end of the world? Since nobody confirmed that 100% Primož, Katarina and me decided to visit Hagia Sophia. First impression was very bad, because the entrance fee was 20TL (cca. 10€).

Former Orthodox patriarchal  basilica, later a mosque, and now a museum  in Istanbul, Hagia Sophia
It doesn't look very impressive from the outside, but from the inside it's a completely different story.




Pictures from inside

We continued our sightseeing tour to Kapalıçarşı (Grand Bazaar). It's a completely touristic place, so I prefer smaller bazaars.

Katarina and her shopping place

After some kilometres in the bazaar we went towards Mısır Çarşısı (Spice Bazaar). 

Spice Bazaar

Spices, tea and again touristic prices

After that we walked from Eminönü over Galata Bridge, which crosses Golden Horn to Kadıköy.

On our way home, we captured a turkey for our dinner.

Our dinner, half naked

For dinner we again ate too much. If you are on the diet, just don't go to Istanbul.
Table is never empty in Turkey

And finally. Time to go out to a party. We were already late, because I couldn't decide what to wear. We took Dolmuş to Taksim Square and then we walked to our destination, bar Romeo and Juliet.

İstiklal Caddesi was very crowded

We arrived to the party place, but we were not lucky at all. Organisation of CS party was awful and we had to wait in line for a drink more than half an hour, so we spent our new year time in a queue waiting for a beer. When it was our turn to order, we ordered triple portions, so we were prepared to a toast for Slovenian new year, which is one hour later then Turkish. Party was still nothing special, so we didn't stay long. Taxi drove us back home.

Our table at the party, special reservation

Happy new year at 1 a.m.

Today's special: In a bar today, we saw a nice drawing.

I think it was even before 1862

Happy New Year everyone!
