Playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 on 5K iMac

Who says you can’t game on an iMac?

Okay, I admit, it’s not a gaming machine. In a similar price range, you can get a much more powerful desktop computer having the ability to play all the latest triple-A titles. But that’s not what I got the iMac for. So I was fine with not having the ability to play all the triple-A titles.

However, it was still great at playing some of the titles that I enjoy. Euro Truck Simulator, as seen here, plays smoothly without any drama. I’m glad that it does. It’s one of the most relaxing video games that I ever played and I can’t get enough of it.

Fun fact: When I shot this photo, as you can see, it was raining in the game world. It had been raining in the real world as well! Adds to the experience, you know!

Crowne Plaza, Belgrade

While attending WordCamp Europe 2018 in Belgrade, Serbia, I had the opportunity to stay at Belgrade’s Crowne Plaza hotel. It was a nice hotel with a fairly well-decorated room. Took this shot while I was looking at it from my bed.

Isn’t it wonderful that we can travel the world with ‘our world’ on that piece of technology?

Tracking a flight

Aviation technology has always fascinated me. From booking a flight that can happen from a million different places to how a flight is tracked all over the world, it has never failed to amaze me. Recently, I discovered this cool site where you can track the live status of any flight that’s currently airborne. As my brother headed for Germany, his first flight from Bangladesh did not have a tracker it in, but his second flight did have a tracker. As a result, as you can see above, I was able to view the live position of his flight just like he was able to view it on his personal monitor for the in-flight entertainment system.

When the flight had a tracker, it became a lot easier just to watch where the aircraft currently is.
