Толькі ў сэрцы трывожным пачую
За краіну радзімую жах,
Успомню Вострую Браму святую
I ваякаў на грозных канях.
Толькі ў сэрцы трывожным пачую
It’s like a wave of visitors coming to my blog each time Doomberg releases another post.
I mean, usually I have ~1½ visitor a day, so the wave is like 20+ a day. LOL 😀
A question to those trying “password”, “letmein”, “doomberg”, etc. as a password, are you serious?
To satisfy everyone else’s curiosity:
– Doomberg is a team of 2+ people;
– one woman, one man;
– colleagues from work, not working there anymore;
– this work place is, let’s say, energy/plastics/chemicals related;
– one is Canadian, another one is American, both are living in States;
– one has MBA, another one has degree in chemistry;
– they have other Twitter account(s).
DISCLAIMER: Not an investment advice! 🙂 I might be wrong in anything and in everything written above and below. I’m doing it for fun and hope you enjoy!
Extracted from Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit
NFS3 was one of my favorite games. Cops talking on the radio, spikes, reflections on cars (wow! 😀 ) and easy arcade gameplay… It was something amazing when I played it first time in 1999.
And the music of course…
Yeah, I’m experimenting with dramatic headlines for my posts. 🙂
I was buying and selling TSX:RNW stock a few times since 2017, but never held it for too long.
Dunno why, maybe because I have never really checked their financials and was just buying the stock for dividends.
In 2020 RNW went up a lot, which I’ve totally missed, but in 2021 things started to change.
This music is from 2006, but I’ve just listened to it first time last year, life is full of surprises.
New Year brings new solitaire games: Sultan Solitaire and Grandfather’s Clock Solitaire.
By chance I was able to win Grandfather’s Clock in just 30 seconds and score 331 while recording a gameplay video.
Let’s see how long it will take other players to beat my record.
This new update is not yet available for mobile devices, but web version of All-in-One Solitaire has both games included.
Back in 2016/2017, I’ve spent around 5 months traveling around Asia: China, Japan, but mostly South Asia, like Thailand, Indonesia, and a bunch of other countries.
The two longest stops were the island of Koh Phangan in Thailand, where I’ve stayed for about a month, and Bali, Indonesia, where I’ve spent almost 2 months. (and did a visa run to Australia… a bad idea! 😀 )
Both islands are full of spectacular views and fun things to do, and the most popular mean of transportation on both islands is a scooter.

In 2015 I’ve made my first version of Admob OpenFL extension.
At that time it only supported Android, so I was happy to abandon it as soon as “official” extension with Android and iOS support became available: https://lib.haxe.org/p/extension-admob/.
Fast forward to 2021 and it was abandoned as well as no one really updated it for 4+ years…
It was working ok until recently when Apple introduced iOS14 and their App Tracking Transparency: https://developers.google.com/admob/ios/ios14?hl=en.
Well, as old saying goes: “If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself”.
So, here is my new version of Admob OpenFL extension, that supports both Android and iOS and has lots of cool features:
It took me around a week to make it work. While Android part was quite easy and straightforward, with iOS part I wanted to climb the walls.
Biggest issue was the speed, or rather lack of it, as I was working on iOS part in virtual machine, and it was slooooow. Any small change required me to rebuild the extension and then rebuild my project to test the change.
On virtual machine this procedure could easily take 20-25 minutes and then if I need another small change, I have to repeat everything all over again.
Anyway, extension is out there and I hope to keep it up to date!
My old BLU Vivo Air test phone became too old, both physically and “mentally”.
The battery is playing tricks showing 40% in one moment and then dropping to 0% another and Android version is 5.0.2, which is soon will become unsupported even by my own games.
At the moment I still set minSdkVersion to 19 (Android 4.4 KitKat), but targetSdkVersion is already forced by Google to be 30.
Btw, in OpenFL it is done in project.xml file:
<config:android minimum-sdk-version="19" target-sdk-version="30" />
A neat list of all the Android/API versions can be found on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Android_version_history.
By accident, I’ve got involved in lumber, more precisely in lumber stocks, to be exact, one stock.
I can’t already remember why I wanted to buy lumber stock, but I’ve found this nice company Conifex Timber Inc. (TSX:CFF) and what I liked about them was their power plant.

2 more games, brining the total to 54: Stonewall Solitaire and Dice Solitaire.
As for now those games are available only in web version of All-in-One Solitaire.
I’m planning to add 2 more games and then release updated version for Android and iOS.
