On our frequent walks around Tbilisi, we have spotted many graffitis. Some represent famous musicians or celebrities, while others are more unique in style. Perhaps the most eye-catching are the graffitis by the twentysomething, self-taught street artist Mishiko Sulakauri.

Installing Windows 7 was not a piece of cake as Microsoft is pushing desperately Windows 10. Detailed installation instructions with driver download links follow this walkthrough. The first obstacle was getting usb to work. Windows 7 does not support USB 3, and Vostro has only USB 3 ports meaning that none of the usb ports are functional before the drivers are installed. We used Ubuntu live image and two pen drives to transfer the drivers. After usb started working, installing all the rest of the drivers was a trivial task, almost. Driver packages and updates provided by Dell kept crashing and messing up the system. Installations were interrupted with undocumented error messages, and finally the system got so messed up that we had to re-install Windows 7. On the next round, we stripped the drivers out from Dell update packages. This way, and by gathering drivers from original component manufacturers, we managed to get everything installed. The only issue left was the system that cras…

The previous time we visited Russia was in 2006, when we were still omnivores. Having been vegans since 2010, we were a bit skeptical of what the Russian kitchen could offer us now when mettwurst, grilled chicken, smetana, and caviar were out of the question. Veganism is only emerging in Russia, and it is generally regarded as a folly. It raises eyebrows and wonder: "What do you eat then?"
We've been living without a mobile phone for 12 years. Before embarking on our nomadic journey in 2004, our friends bought us a brand new smart phone for keeping in touch. We carried the precious gift all over the world and kept purchasing new SIM cards in each and every country we visited.
We have spent the last 11+ years as digital nomads travelling perpetually with laptops writing books, creating websites, and making films. This article summarises the lessons we have learned for choosing the best laptop for travelling and working on the road, and a few practical tips. Below is a list of the brands and models we have had, and the problems we experienced with them.
This article helps you to protect your Windows 7 against security threats, privacy violations, and malware. These instructions are crucial for digital nomads who are often travelling and working offline in remote areas using internet cafes with slow and unreliable internet connections. In such conditions, having your laptop suddenly download unwanted updates or get messed up is a nightmare. The same principles apply to all operating systems, not just Windows 7, as long as you have control over your system. Even if you are not a digital nomad, you might want to enjoy increased productivity, stability and security by controlling your own computer.
Darién Gap is one of the most difficult areas on earth to travel and it is considered to be extremely dangerous. This documentary film includes footage from a speedboat ride from Turbo to Capurganá, border villages, and the jungle on both sides of the border between Panama and Colombia. There are interviews with two fellow travellers who crossed the Darién Gap, one from Switzerland and another from Peru. Crossing the Darién Gap (40 minutes, Päivi & Santeri Kannisto, 2013 & 2016) has English, Spanish and Finnish subtitles.
In 2013, we wrote about using Twitter for marketing. After sending 3711 tweets during 1023 days I can confidently confirm: Twitter works perfectly for nothing. Using Twitter for business and advertising is a similar waste of resources as LinkedIn or Facebook, although they are all nice toys for fooling around, showing off, and killing time. And Google+, well, they remain as dead as always waiting to be shut down like Google Picasa. For many companies including Asian airlines, Twitter has been a channel for spamming followers. They don't bother to read replies or answer questions. Perhaps they don't even understand them. If you have been wondering why there are so many spelling mistakes and stupidities in our tweets, it is because Santeri has been using Twitter alone. Päivi is too busy with her own projects to get engaged in social media save for rare visits at www.academia.edu. Please do not show these tweets to Päivi as she will most certainly not agree with any of them. Tha…
