About michal.Log

I have shortly introduced myself in my first post. What I didn't do, is to warn (well, maybe just inform) that you can expect different quotations hidden in my post (title of the first post can by familiar for some of you :)). I'm also a big fan of movies and books so you can expect posts in case of big events (watching "V for Vendetta" and reading "The system of the world" for example).
