The bus passed by me slowly—like a boat floating on a sea of dreams—run by a peculiar engine of people falling in and out of sleep. Aboard she was the only one completely awake and she looked straight at me—both of us, thereby, staring at a ghost.

Personal 4 x "Thank you"

What a week! I lost 2 kilos and my voice, but now that I survived, I'll draw the line and give thanks where it is most certainly due.

For Brandient 101 Book: first and foremost I have to thank Aneta for picking me when back in 2002 the whole advertising elite was at her feet, Mihai for managing the project, the second to none Brandient team and my truly exceptional clients for making it all possible. Also, Peggy Production for bearing with our frequent changes and impossible demands.

For Brandient 101 Exhibition: I'll thank my unrelenting team—mainly Lacrima, Ciprian and Iancu—and Carturesti for kindly having us there. The private opening was more like a business summit and I was blown away to find out that some guests had to book a helicopter to reach Bucharest in time to attend it—big, big thank you.

For Brandient 101 Minutes seminar: thank you, all of you, for showing up and listening—now that the ice is broken we should do this more often;

For RoBLogFest award: Thank you Dragos Novac—do you remember the days Petroniu's RBA and IRBNLA were the alpha and omega of it all?—and RoBLogFest 2010 jury. Also, congrats to Iancu for his award—I would've voted for his blog. I'm truly sorry I could not attend the ceremony.

Update: Regarding №4—additional thanks to Smartgifts.ro for sponsoring the RoBlogfest section.

Apple Laser power

The future came and took me by surprise—it doesn't look at all like what I've been expecting:

"The disc can't be burned, because the device failed to calibrate the laser power level for this media." OS X warning message

Future, fail.
