Knife Steel Composition Chart ver. 3.90 for Android

After long break, or long development and testing cycle, new version is up. A lot of new features, and bunch of bugfixes too. Highlights include, Bookmarks system, you can bookmarks alloys as you need, and view bookmarks in a dedicated view, also you can export and import bookmarks from the app, if you need to share or migrate them. Quick search is now at the top of the steel browser, allowing for, you guessed it, quick searches :) Removed menu system, replaced with toolbars. It's faster from the usability point of view, but I'd be lazy to do it just for that, but I got more than one complaint and one 2 star rating because user couldn't figure out how to preform search(!) I thougt all Anndroid users knew about the menu button, but apparently I was wrong. There are a lot more features and fixes, check the changelog on zvisoft.com for details. Enjoy.

Tojiro F-809 DP 240mm Gyuto

One of the knives we gave as a gift to our friend, to introduce him to Japanese kitchen knives. I was happy to have anew knife for testing and reviewing, me and my friends were happy to pick a worthy present and recipient was happy to get the knife he wanted. Everyone was happy in the end, including the dealer I suppose :) Anyhow, good knife, solid build, solid performance. I have no clue why would Tojiro conceal Takefu VG-10 steel used in this knife under obscure DP name, but that's how it was for a while. Details in the review.

2013 Tesla Model S

My biggest toy in recent years, if not ever :) And it is my first EV to boot. Very geeky car IMHO and I love pretty much everything about it. Smooth ride, tons of gadgets, huge touch screen, very high acceleration and regenerative breaking which is far more important and convenient that it might seem just by reading the description, I can drive that car using one pedal 98% of the time. No more gas station visits either. What can I say, truly 21st century car and I'm glad I have it.

30" Dell U3011 display arrived after all. Got lost first time somehow, dunno how do you loose 30" monstrosity, but the seller sent another one overnight. All things well in the end, now I have my system almost as I wanted it :) Games do look better on 30 incher...

After 4 days of struggle, replaced all of the watercooling components, including every single bard, tube, reservoir, coolant, rediator, radiator fans... just the pump is old. Stupid Rampage IV won't recognize more than 20GB ram... Too tired, will try to flash bios tomorrow. And then OC, which is why I bought top level hardware anyway...

Kershaw Tilt, for which I have been waiting for so long, and frankly, quietly gave up hopes of receiving it at all, even though I had it on backorder for a long time. Well, few days ago the dealer contacted me and offered gray tilt, instead of the original black one I had on preorder. Since the color didn't matter that much, at least it wasn't pink, I took it. One weird knife to be honest, the biggest and most expensive boxcutter design I have ever come across, but I like it somehow. Build quality is really high, definitely on custom knife level. Pix coming soon.

I suspect it was defunct long time. When PHP stopped processing form variables by default. Just realized the data was old and fixed the issue, along the way converted everything to modern HTML standards. Hard to keep up with the site of this size, sorry. Anyway, if you are a DE owner, and have not done so, please fill it out.

Modern browsers still suck in terms of adhering to specs. Fixed damn object tag, seemed to work ok, but no, now broke in Firefox. Got that worked out too. I still hate coding if/else etc based on browser. Even such a basic tag is not the same across the main browsers. Chrome started acting up on java applets too. Hangs every other time, and their runtime is slow as hell...

AISI 420 steel One of the oldest and mostwidel used steels in the knives and I had the composition off... I suspect it was messed up back when the database didn't support alloy groups with multiple compositions. Well, it's all good now, according to AISI specs.
