Secret of Living Together In Peace

sharing-sisters


I think it’s all about caring and sharing.


Doesn’t matter if it is a about sharing a drink of water or sharing of a funny story in the living room or giving a support to each other in hard times…


These two sisters have been together for 10+ years.


Never seen them arguing or fighting. Simply an example of togetherness.


Maybe they know the secret of living together in peace?

CV Case Study: The Hockey Retrospective


Title: The Hockey Retrospective

Client: Pro Bono

Launch Date: January 2003

Technologies: XHTML/CSS; Flash 4, MP3

URL: chidlovski.com/personal/1972/znreel/retro/


Another independent projects on sports history. Originally developed as an educational mutimedia plugin for the Summit In 1972 project with the idea of picture being worth 100 words and, therefore. video being worth at least 1000 of those :-)


Timewise, the project was completed well before You Tube era on the web. Development and hosting of various multimedia formats were done in-house. Collecting and research of video segments were also a significant part of the project. Another consideration was low bandwidth connectivity of average visitors in the early 2000s. As a resolution for this issue, we chose to emphasize optimization of media content and selection of clips vs. full length materials.


My responsibilities included full in-house development (front-end, back-end, web design, editing and optimizing of multimedia content, etc.).


One of the pioneers of online multimedia projects, The Hockey Retrospective site remains online for almost 15 years.


Cheers!

Alex Ovechkin, 484

484-ovii


Congrats to Alex Ovechkin with the new NHL record of most goals by a Russian-born player.


Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 484th NHL goal Thursday against the Dallas Stars and bypassed previous record set by Sergei Fedorov inducted into the HHOF in Toronto this month.


Too many things to celebrate here!


Too many topic for passionate discussions here…


How does Alex Ovechkin rank compared to Sydney Crosby, his constant rival on the non-stop question who’s the best player on ice today?


What’s your take on Ovechkin compared to other countrymen who played in the NHL – Sergei Fedoros or Alex Mogilny or Pavel Bure or…?


How would you rate Ovechkin compared to the all-time greats from Russia of earlier generations, the ones who paved the road to the NHL for Russian players?


Too many questions here :-) The organist is playing “Kalinka” and “Russian Sailor Dance” in between the questions and super goals by Ovi.


Super congrats to Alex Ovechkin with this milestone in the history books. Going to 500?
