When you live in a totalitarian, controlled and “happy” society, and you want to be a hacker, you have to hack the social system first. Half a century ago, when I was in elementary school, I discovered the magical world of HAM radio. I became a member of two amateur radio clubs, passed all exams and got my licence and callsign, which was YU1OPC. Well, one day the police paid a visit to all registered owners of CB Band equipment and simply took that equipment away. No one knows why they did it, but it was probably off the books, as we never got any written confirmation, and no one ever saw their equipment again. I wondered why they didn’t take our HAM Radio units as well, which were as legal as any CB unit. I guess they didn’t know how to use it… for their own personal needs. Actually, I was not too sad about it. I lost only a Japanese 5W CB transceiver, but I was not interested in HAM radio anymore. Since the first commercial HAM radio equipment appeared on the market, the profile of users has changed dramatically – instead of people who could build HAM units with their own hands, now you had people who had enough money to buy them. Maybe I was overreacting, maybe there were still a lot of enthusiasts, but the magic of my own enthusiasm was destroyed and I moved to digital technology.
It was once home to the American author Patrick Dennis (aka Edward Everett Tanner III), the creator of Auntie Mame , and his family owned the house until the 1980s. Still, many of the house's defining features, like the double-height living room... There are stained-glass windows , mahogany woodwork, wood-burning fireplaces, coffered ceilings, and two private gardens, as well as a kosher kitchen, four bedrooms, and a sun room. Some highlights from the brokerbabble :. "With the amount of sunlight that comes in on a sunny day, between the copious windows and the four skylights on the top floor, you'll think you left the lights on. ". "When Patrick Dennis lived here, he... The result is a dramatic, twenty-foot living room ceiling and a towering Palladian-style window (which mirrors a grand archway on the opposite wall) looking onto the street. "With four different skylights, one of which is stained glass, [the fourth] floor is absolutely flooded with sunshine. The skylight in the master bedroom features electric remote-control shades, allowing you to sleep in a little longer when you want to. ". "And just outside the elevator is the stained glass skylight, with a bold floral design.
The ball skips across the face of goal and they really should have tapped it in but the Honduran attacker can’t put it away. 33 min: The Guardian’s very own Tom Gottlieb has written in with his thoughts on the game: “Am I alone in thinking that the scoreline from Guatemala papered over an attack that looked completely disjointed and unconvincing. 6 min: And Honduras are attacking early. Acosta takes, it’s decent inswinger and Guzan punches behind for another corner. Then Najar’s curled shot forces Guzan into a save. When you think of God Save the Queen, it’s just one melody all the way through. This, though, is structured like a song – it’s got a verse, a pre-chorus and then it goes into what I would call a chorus and then back to a verse. It’s quite a jolly, memorable melody, punctuated with a lot of cymbals, which lock the melody down. The lyrics are almost a battle cry, full of dramatic lyrics – crashing waves, volcanoes, marching to the death. Personally I think our anthem is really dreary, but this has a better tempo, a more interesting structure. I think it’s a good singalong, and can really picture them bellowing that out, very proud, before kick-off.
