Renault Turkey has one of the Turkey's leading automotive factories. Not only that as in automative it is also one of the biggest production giant factories. Approximately, it has a capacity to make a single car from zero on the assembly line every single minute. That's a quite impressive amount if you think it yearly... 60x24x365 cars...
Whether you know this little info or not, it is previously acknowledged that their annual endorsement is 2.2 billion Euro in 2007 (excuse me for having outdated info) and it is only rising from that point. Also, in the past ten years; they exported cars worth 6.7 billion Euro.
With those numbers kept in mind, one can clearly see the real value of the brand and of the factory itself. Turkey's fragile economy depends on such great establishments.

We are always going to be in need of, I think so at least, two different browsers... While working on windows, my primary choice is Internet Explorer of course; my secondary is Safari. While I am working or spending time on my home PC, which is a Mac, I use Safari as my primary and Opera as my secondary.
For Windows I use Safari for secondary because of I believe I must have same browsers on different platforms to accept something as, you know, baseline some-kind.
Ok, but why am I not using Opera as my second on the home PC so I still can have a baseline? Then again users who has and utilizes two browsers at the same time of course use their primaries more often. And if I use opera as baseline and the secondary at both environments, my usage will be small portioned (for Opera) and I will be missing the, you know, best of both worlds. Don't take me wrong, Opera is a great browser, but for mobiles you know.
Only if MS Internet Explorer was on Mac too that would change everything...

BUT WHY IS MSN 8 FOR MAC STILL BETA?!?!?! and broken...?
We have tons of different solutions to use Live Accounts on iPhone. On Mac I cannot say it is true, at least for me. I was waiting for a decent version of MSN for Mac over 2 years now. MS only releases more and more irrelevant(*) apps on iPhone! That I do not understand, please Microsoft; first fix the main platform(**) which is Mac OS X not iOS...
(*): Bing, Seadragon, Tag (however I see a bright future for Tag, still; on iPhone, it is irrelevant in my humble opinion).
(**): Here is the link to the borked version of MSN for MAC 8, which is still in beta and has a lot of known issues... (if somehow it becomes released and gets completely fixed, I am probably not going to bother to edit this post. So I state that this is on 12/07/10.)

** 3GB Memory (my experience tells me if you have only a single machine for everything you are going to do, memory is more important than CPU, well most of the cases)
** AMD Athlon X2 64 bit @ 2.0 GHz (my mainboard is the cheapest mainboard I could find with everything on-board (ECS))
** 16 GB SSD Disk (well in such systems IO is actually more important than CPU, again most of the cases, but this wiki-thing I am setting up is going to be used only by 5 or less people so IO for this will be no importance. If yours is going to be serve as a more serious manner, then please choose accordingly. I chose this way cause this machine will be in my study-room and I don't like that much computer sound (I even disabled the fans, it works ok))
** 64 bits Ubuntu with broadband Internet connection set and ready to go (yes, this part I am assuming you can do without this tiny-miny guide)
Guess we are ready to install the software; one last thing, a reminder: you have your root password or never set root user of Ubuntu right? Ok then, let's start.
1. From the Administration / Synaptic Package Manager choose the "repositories" from the main menu. Find the Preferred Server and make it to "Main Server" if it is not already set. (This will help the download process and finding the necessary software for our installation process)
2. Open up the Terminal and then type
sudo apt-get install apache2
This will install the Apache 2.2 Web Server
3. After that type this to install PHP 5 automatically to your Apache Web Server.
sudo apt-get install php5
4. Again type this in Terminal Window
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5
This was already done when I did it but every other detailed guide I found says "do this just to be safe" so I am saying too.
5. Well installation process for the infrastructure part is done, I restarted my computer, and typed localhost in my browser and Apache's "It works" was there. But if you don't want to restart just type this to restart only you Apache. It'll take only a moment to do so...
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
6. Go to this address: http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/Download and download the latest version of PmWiki
7. Extract the compressed files to the location of /var/www/ of your Ubuntu... This directory is your home www of Apache.
8. As soon as you type the url of the wiki page you are going to see your HomeWikiServer. It's going to ask you a final creation of a directory and giving 777 to it, but this part I'll leave it to the Wiki Page Instructions. It is only 2 commands you are going to copy paste anyway.
9. There you have your Wiki now for SSH-Server to connect your server and access the logs and etc and control/administer it remotely.
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
There you have your SSH-server too, but let me remind you now you may want to reconsider your password strength and stuff, this is a nice little guide you can take a look.
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh stop
sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start
Restart your Ubuntu just to be safe and you're done...
I assumed you have a very very basic understanding of Linux at least. I don't know if this will help anyone, but I tried anyway. Enjoy... Thanks for reading.

I recently heard Commodore USA's reborn. They plan the awakening of one of the greatest legends of all time in computing world. Commodore 64 itself. It is rumored that it will be a modern 21st century computer in a keyboard pc.
Of course this is only one of the concept designs by Commodore Enthusiasts. Still wouldn't it be awesome? I would buy it without even thinking once.

Anyways... Until the sequel hits the stores I am guessing this will be the only tFU action we are going to get. I mean I don't think we are gonna get another expainsion for the first game. Maybe some more Avatar Tees or something like that, but that's all. Any new game content; I don't think. In fact that may be the last content ever for this game. We'll see.

I know for a fact that Adobe's optimizations are "file size" oriented. It is said that developers at Adobe are strictly dictated over patch sizes and new versions in about 3 digit byte levels. Also I know for another fact that Silverlight is CPU-wise optimized. So why not fully support Silverlight instead of so called slow Flash on Safari Mobile. At least we'll have an alternative, and that's better than nothing.
Over a night, things change. Today the video on internets may equal to Adobe's Flash. Tomorrow, if everything played nice by Microsoft, it could be Silverlight in my humble opinion.

Halo Legends DVD is OUT! I already bought it from Amazon and watched it twice. In fact I watched the 8th episode of it 3rd times already. It is, in one word, SPECTACULAR. I was amazed, and learnt many new things about Halo Universe...
The details are breathtaking. I haven't watched the special features disc yet, but soon will. I am pretty sure it will be very satisfactory too.
Anyways I recommend it to everyone from one who has no idea to the one who is already a Hard Core Halo Fan. A must have I must say.
Let me close this post with this quote:

What is so good that makes me write about it? Let me explain. This campaign comes with this site, which allows contestants to make their own virtual recipé according to their own likings. After that one can join the competition to vote more than the others to win a prize which is 10.000 Liras (approx. 6800 US dollars) and bonus gifts etc.
The whole campaign is so addictive to see what others done so far and how are you doing in the competition, I liked it. I liked the idea, simple, creative and yet compelling to participate in. Moreover, it is stated that when one wins he/she will have a 1% gain from the sales of the new taste which she/he invented in the first place!
Pretty neat idea, I must say! Enjoy if you know Turkish =] ...

However, again, one cannot claim that N.O.V.A. is a poor imitation of Halo. It is as good as any game can get on an iPhone. I accept it is a clone, but it is a well made well designed clone. Buy it, you will not be disappointed, although I will not say it may be a turn point for Gameloft or anything. They need more such games to earn the trust of, at least mine, of the wireless gamer community.
