More fun with containers.

Hanging out in Russia (the land of truly enormous spoons) with the engineers at Parallels' main office in Moscow, trying to absorb giant info-dumps and get over jetlag at the same time. They have an energy drink called "Adrenaline Rush" here, which is not bad.

Calling up google.com redirects to google.ru here, with no obvious way to make it not do that. (The non-obvious way to make it not do that turns out to be to visit google.com/en instead of google.com.)

Buying a local sim card for one's phone is apparently the same category of ordeal it is in the US, only with more paperwork and a language barrier. Decided to hold off until _next_ trip for that.

I wonder how you preview to see if you got the lj-cut tag right?
