Monday, August 18 – Salzburg Next day on Monday, August 18 I turned on data on my iPhone, and we searched for Rent-a-Car places near Salzburg train station.  It returned 4 places and two were non-existent.  And it missed one place.  But we’ve got a complete list from Tourist Office.  Now, after examining how Google search works, I realize that I should have been searching for Autovermietung Salzburg Hbf, Austria.  That returned the most hits.  Otherwise, if you search in English, Google returns just one hit and it is in the airport. We’ve got a couple ridiculous offers for 900€ (Euro Car) and 1000€ (HERZ), so we were satisfied to accept a…

This next piece of thought is a bit untested. What should you answer, if asked “Are you a religious person?” I would go with an immediate clarification:  “Do you mean, if I believe in supernatural, or if I believe in survival of the soul outside the body?” If the questioner (a person with a notebook and a pen) confirms that the question is about the immortal soul, here is one possible answer for you. We already capable of cloning our bodies.  We can recreate a person down to a minutest detail of the DNA. Do I reject the possibility that one day we will be able to transfer and clone people’s minds? …

After several days of heavy exhausting battles and sleepless nights, after testing dozens of options, after browsing many proposed Internet solutions, I finally was able to move an old instance of Windows XP on a new machine with new RAID drivers. That happened at 13:23 on December 12, 2010.  I moved Win XP from old RAID machine to a new RAID machine. O boy! I found  a clear and clean way to do this task.  I will also use the same technique to move any Microsoft operating system from a Single drive to a RAID machine.  And this also works great, if you simply switching your PC controller from IDE to…

Count Number of Cell with Errors in Excel

This problem occurs, when you have a column with a formula that sometimes returns an error.  That is very typical for all kind of look-up situations .  Let’s say, you have a column E with formula that returns good values and errors.  You need to count how many errors are in that column. Enter formula =SUM(IF(ISERROR(E2:E10),1)) and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter while still in editing mode. You should see two things.  First, your formula turns into {=SUM(IF(ISERROR(E2:E10),1))} with square brackets around it, and second, you got you a correct cells with errors count.  This is it. If you need to count cell without errors, you can use this formula: =SUM(IF( NOT( ISERROR(E2:E10)),1 ))…

Venture Outside Vienna Sunday, August 17, 2008 – Wien Next day – Sunday, August 17, 2008 we woke up well before alarm clock, and we were ready for breakfast at 7:50.  Trains for Salzburg leaves every hour so we aimed at 9:40 train.  We tried to use ancient elevator to bring our bags down, but we end up on the very top floor of the building and Mr. Barron with pliers in his hand had to climb to the very top to rescue the elevator.  We had to descend in manual mode from top to bottom with all our suitcases, and we emerged from the pension at 9:15.  A short 15…

Часть 12. 28 августа – 29 cентября 1942   28.8.42                       16.50                             дер. К. «А счастье было так возможно и так близко». Все мои мечты развеяло письмо от 21.8.42. Приготовлено было все для приема моей любимой, для моего счастья. Но судьба сильнее нас, и желания не осуществились. Ну, что ж, значит, не суждено, а что дальше будет, известно прялке, ткущей нити нашей жизни. Глядя на фото, которое уже висит над моей кроватью, я думаю, любовь моя, счастье мое, ты далеко, а могла бы быть здесь, со мной. Вкус твоего поцелуя, твоего присутствия, когда я посмотрел на фото, возник во мне с такой силой, что мне казалось, будто бы сейчас  войдешь ты, мое…

TextArea---Allow-to-Grow

There are situations, when you do not want to have scroll bars inside a TextArea. Main reason not to have scroll bars inside TextArea is to make your pages more mobile-friendly.  For example on iPhone Safari scroll bar inside TextArea will not even show up.  Another reason not to have scroll bars is to improve page readability.   When you have lots of TextArea(s) on a page,  it is much faster to review the information without scrolling inside each individual TextArea. Here is a solution that would allow you to set TextArea height exactly to the amount of information in it and grow its height as needed with user input. Your can use…

Opera House in Vienna

Saturday, August 16 – Wien Next day – Saturday, August 16 – we jumped out of bed at 9:30 and barely made it to the breakfast.  We both took breakfast very seriously this time – the most important meal of the day, if you are planning to spent the rest of the day on your feet. According to Lira’s plan of action we immediately discovered Café Sperl nearby (Gumpendorferstraße 11) and made a mental note to visit it in the evening.  We retraced our steps to Naschmarkt and discovered an exiting and sparkling life, tons of people of both sexes, and even more fruits, meats and beverages.  Today everything was brand…
