  29. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>A while ago I purchased wooden keys for my keyboard from <a href="http://rawbkny.com/">rawbkny.com</a>. It promised to be simple to put onto your existing keys and provide better tactile feedback. Plus it is wood that you would be typing on which is better than plastic.<a href="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024.jpg"><img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-2124" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024.jpg" alt="numerickeyboard_1024x1024" width="1000" height="667" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024.jpg 1000w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/numerickeyboard_1024x1024-600x400.jpg 600w" sizes="(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px" /></a></p>

  31. <p>I bought it impulsively as one usually does things that sell based on design value alone. "Ever wish you could have luxurious rosewood or beautiful bamboo keys on your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or Apple keyboard? Well, with the Wood Keyboard by RAWBKNY, you can!" - I am of those who did not resist this messaging.</p>
  32. <p>They use laser cutting to drill letters and numbers and when it arrived 4-5 keys that I had were burnt. Contacted the support, exchanged couple of emails and they refused to replace them.</p>
  33. <p>I took what I had and spent the better part of the day putting it on. It didn't look as pretty as on the picture but mind you for that I can blame myself - if I had the patience and the time I probably could have achieved similar result.</p>
  34. <p>After a few months typing on it I never got used to it. It never felt right, the keys were both too tall, and the tactile feeling was itchy. I finally decided to remove the keys yesterday and was blessed with the original typing sensation. I left the wooden keys on the numeric keypad, as a reminder to me that everything that glitters is not gold.</p>

  61. <p>Now why did I decide that I like this car so much that I want to make it my next car.</p>
  62. <p>Number one reason is <strong>safety</strong>. If you are an SUV buyer you most likely have kids, and you value nothing more in a car than safety. And Tesla X has five star rating in every safety category, something no car achieved ever before. That alone is amazing.</p>
  63. <p>Number two reason is that it is powered by (almost) free energy. Number three reason is power and technology. Number four is storage.</p>
  64. <p>Number five is that the entire launch is a breath of fresh air in its modesty and setting expectations. Steve Jobs set a bar for fancy stage events that would make the fanboys drool for weeks. Elon Musk is acting like an ordinary human, you and me, would act launching such an extraordinary product. Hats down for that.</p>

  147. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>I recently <a href="http://ma.tt/2015/01/fasting/">read studies</a> about the positive effects of fasting. It appears that after three or four days of fasting (just using water, no food is consumed) your body starts a very sophisticated regenerative and protective mechanism. And ancient civilizations and all religions have always promoted fasting.</p>
  148. <p>Having studied the topic I found out that it is advisable to do this while you are not stressed out. Like any entrepreneur would tell, finding such period of time is normally next to impossible. Luckily I was going to <a href="https://managewp.com/conference-held-paradise">Hawaii to attend a conference</a> and thought this was a perfect opportunity to finally give fasting a try.</p>
  149. <h2>Day One</h2>
  150. <p>Last meal that I ate was at SFO before my final flight to Hawaii.</p>
  151. <div id="attachment_2058" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption alignnone"><img class="size-large wp-image-2058" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2015/02/sfo-600x450.jpg" alt="Airport burger and fries - last thing I ate before a three day fast" width="600" height="450" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Airport burger and fries - not much of a food but it was the last thing I ate before a three day fast</p></div>
  152. <p>Due to already being jetlaged (the entire trip lasted around 30 hours with a time difference of 11 hours) I did not have the appetite at all, until the next day. And by that time, I realized I haven't eaten for a day already. Then the hunger started to kick in.</p>
  153. <h2>Day Two</h2>
  154. <p>You see, I truly enjoy food. I regularly cook, and eat at new places. And now I was at a tropical island which is known for high quality, local food.</p>
  155. <p>So the second day was hard, but not unmanageable. I drank a lot of water and even watched an intriguing documentary called <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FbDJr6M0uPY">Water: The Great Mystery</a>. By the end of the second day I did not feel hungry anymore, although I was seriously tempted everywhere I went.</p>
  156. <div id="attachment_2057" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-2057" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Pizza-600x400.jpg" alt="Mobile Pizza Oven Stand - Ingenious and extremely tempting " width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Pizza-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Pizza-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Pizza-300x200.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Mobile Pizza Oven Stand - Ingenious and extremely tempting</p></div>
  157. <h2>Day Three</h2>
  158. <p>For the most part of day three I felt no hunger at all. The end of three days was exactly at noon local time so I went to the beach anticipating it. And this is where the problems started. The last two hours were incredibly hard as I grew anxious about eating again. I am sure I could have done four or five days no problem, but the very fact that the end of my experiment neared made me nervous. And you do not want to be nervous on a (truly) empty stomach.</p>
  159. <div id="attachment_2059" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="size-large wp-image-2059" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2015/02/DSC_0487-600x400.jpg" alt="The best beach on Maui - Helps steer the thoughts away from food" width="600" height="400" /><p class="wp-caption-text">A pristine beach on Maui - Baldwin beach</p></div>
  160. <p>When the time came I ate a banana and it tasted like no banana before. It was incredible. Started eating more food right after it, but I soon felt no pleasure or desire to do so, so I stopped and gave it couple of hours before I ate again. After that I felt fully recovered.</p>
  161. <h2>Lessons learned</h2>
  162. <ol>
  163. <li>You can do a three day fast without any physical problems</li>
  164. <li>Everything is really in the head</li>
  165. <li>By not eating you actually save a considerable amount of time (about 2h per day). And money too.</li>
  166. <li>No food = no poop :)</li>
  167. <li>It is almost impossible to do any intense mental work. You soon get very agitated. Brain simply needs fuel more than any other organ in the body.</li>
  168. <li>Reading books was not a problem.</li>
  169. <li>I had no problems doing physical work (like swimming), it did not grow the hunger.</li>
  170. <li>You truly need to be in a stress-free environment to try this.</li>
  171. <li>You'll learn how to suppress hunger if you need to. Next time you feel hungry and it has been only 5 hours since you last ate, you'll know that it can be tolerated with ease.</li>
  172. <li>This experience will be inspiring in some way.</li>
  173. </ol>

  202. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>It's that time of the year, renewing the New Year resolutions.</p>
  203. <p>Starting by reflecting on what I said <a href="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//new-year-resolution-2014/">last year</a> I can note:</p>
  204. <ul>
  205. <li>I indeed got rid of Facebook and Twitter. Getting rid of Google was harder, honestly I did not even try, kind of forgot as I got rid of the first two very early in the year. I guess I'll carry it over to 2015.</li>
  206. <li>I did manage to shift my mindset to creating amazing products. The new release of <a href="https://managewp.com">ManageWP</a> should prove that.</li>
  207. </ul>
  208. <p>This year I have a couple of things I want to achieve.</p>
  209. <h2>Build a prototype of a hardware device</h2>
  210. <p>The entire last year I have been steadily growing my interest in hardware. All my major tech impressions of the last year were related to hardware: India<a href="http://www.forbes.com/sites/saritharai/2013/11/07/how-indias-isro-launched-its-mars-mission-at-cut-rate-costs/"> sending mission to Mars </a>for mere $75 million, someone deciding to <a href="http://mashable.com/2013/10/31/hyperloop-startup-lands-major-partners-and-unveils-official-name/">build Hyperloop</a>, <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlTA3rnpgzU">solar roadways</a>...</p>
  211. <p>As much as I love software, there is no replacement for having something tangible in your hands. I already have an idea of what I want to make, and it has to do with the way we communicate.</p>
  212. <h2>Make a more efficient organization</h2>
  213. <p>Every modern organization can improve on two critical factors that affect its success - speed of innovation and speed of execution. A metric that IMO explains really well how well an organization innovates and executes is Revenue Per Employee. Companies like Tesla Motors move at $200k revenue monthly per employee. Google is at $100k. Intel at $40k. IBM is at $20k. Devana is only at $8k and I'd like to be able to reach at least $20k by the end of the year.</p>

  234. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>What do you do when you are struck with the flu for 4 days and can not think straight? You catch up with some movies. I've been planning to watch "Wolf of the Wall Street" for quite some time, and since I had the whole day under my disposal, I threw in the original "Wall Street" and it's successor "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" into the mix. So some six hours of watching finest cinema later, here are my impressions.</p>
  235. <p>The original "Wall Street" stands out as a cinematic masterpiece. It's not just the case of a fantastic cast (as Leonardo di Caprio was extraordinary in the "Wolf"), it is just that the film gets you engaged on so many levels (there is inevitably  80's nostalgia kicking in as well).</p>
  236. <p>The scene where Gordon wakes up Buddy early in the morning, starting the conversation with the money never sleeps line and proceeding with "I'm gonna make you rich enough to afford a girl like Darien. This is your wake up call pal, go to work." is in my opinion the defining moment of film, one as I would imagine, that got the blood boiling for the generation of 80s and 90s college students and MBAs later to pursue career on the Wall Street.</p>
  237. <p>The second movie, although directed by Oliver Stone like the original, felt hollow, predictable and forced. Can't really force myself into saying anything else about it, in the company of these two others.</p>
  238. <p>The latest, "Wolf", is a different beast. It is daring and featuring great acting. I did feel engaged and I think the movie left a message. It however used all the modern Hollywood tools like portraying extreme decadency to get there, so I will take it off from it's pure cinematic value.</p>
  239. <p>The original "Wall Street" remains an unmatched classic in the genre.</p>
  240. <p>And remember, market is a zero sum game, somebody wins, somebody looses.</p>

  262. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p>I am going to remember this Friday night. I met <a href="https://twitter.com/davidbraben">David Braben</a>.</p>
  263. <p>Those of you who recognize the screenshot below will know why is this so special to me.</p>
  264. <div id="attachment_2028" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2028 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Elite-1_3014908b-600x374.jpg" alt="Elite" width="600" height="374" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Elite-1_3014908b-600x374.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Elite-1_3014908b-150x93.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Elite-1_3014908b-300x187.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Elite-1_3014908b.jpg 620w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Original Elite: Docking the space station (with the sounds of the "Beautiful Blue Danube" if you were lucky)</p></div>
  265. <p>It was 1984 and I was eight when I first laid my eyes on arguably the most influential game in my life. It was Elite.</p>
  266. <p>The game that put you in the command seat of a Cobra MkIII space ship and let you explore galaxies, trade goods and fight your way to the Elite status. In the interview that I recently <a href="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/games/11051122/Elite-the-game-that-changed-the-world.html">gave to Telegraph</a> I said experiencing the game was literally like having a small scale Big Bang explosion in my head. I became restless about technology advance of the human race and this passion still drives me today.</p>
  267. <p>When Braben announced the <a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1461411552/elite-dangerous">Elite: Dangerous kickstarter campaign</a> it did not take me very long to support it at the highest level and earn the privilege of having a dinner and chatting with the person who is largely responsible for whom I've became. That day finally came this Friday.</p>
  268. <div id="attachment_2030" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2030 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141121_233453-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141121_233453-600x450.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141121_233453-150x112.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141121_233453-300x225.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Milan, David and me chatting terraforming Mars in Cambridge, UK</p></div>
  269. <p>What is the dinner with Braben like?</p>
  270. <p>I flew in to UK from Serbia and my friend Milan flew in from Canada for the occasion.  When the time finally came, I had to fight this inexplainable fanboy excitement (I am 38 mind you). For the first 15 minutes, all I could see looking at David was the image of the original Elite's space station rotating as I try to dock it (see the picture above). Once I got past that, I discovered a person of stark contrast - very humble and approachable on one end and the most passionate and eloquent visionary I've met on the other.  Rarely will you be on a dinner with the person who will make claims like "Mars is not that far away." with such ease.</p>
  271. <p>And when someone has such profound impact on your life it is OK to let go your emotions and enjoy the opportunity to sit next to them and listen them speak, like a child in awe of a grownup.</p>
  272. <blockquote><p>The experience of listening to David Braben explain how we should propel a 100 km space body into the Mars to basically kickstart a massive terraforming process which would last for just 20-30 years making Mars basically habitable is simply mind-blowing.</p></blockquote>
  273. <p>And it is not just mind blowing but something my brain has been craving to hear for too long. Listening to David, I could go back to my childhood and remember watching series like "Beyond 2000", imagining my self being 24 when the new millennium finally comes, and driving a flying car around a futuristic looking city.  I am 38 now and flying cars never felt more distant.</p>
  274. <div id="attachment_2029" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2029 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_0054-e1416741062408-600x358.jpg" alt="And not just jetpacks buy flying cars and much more" width="600" height="358" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_0054-e1416741062408-600x358.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_0054-e1416741062408-150x89.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_0054-e1416741062408-300x179.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">And not just jetpacks, but flying cars and much more</p></div>
  275. <p>I took this photo in San Francisco and it very clearly depicts the movement of massive disappointment with the current state of affairs with technology advancement, where the most brilliant minds of our race are employed with companies like Google or Facebook, figuring out how to get users to click more (uh oh).</p>
  276. <p>When chatting with David, all that dissapears and you discover that there are still people genuinely interested in seeing us continue to advance and innovate, yearning to travel to the planets and the stars.  It produces an atmosphere where I get encouraged to share one of my visions that I rarely feel comfortable speaking out loudly - the idea of using a rocket to first deploy a bunch of RC cars to the Moon, then making them available for control to anyone on Earth with a browser or a phone app, hopefully impacting and inspiring the current generation of kids in the same way lunar landings inspired millions 50 years ago. "That's a great and fun idea", David remarks, and my heart is filled with warmth. (<em>btw. India recently <a href="http://www.forbes.com/sites/saritharai/2013/11/07/how-indias-isro-launched-its-mars-mission-at-cut-rate-costs/">sent a rocket to Mars for a cost of just USD $75 million</a>, so this idea is not crazy or out of reach especially given we still invest millions in bloody photo sharing apps  - just few days ago, USD <a href="http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/04/wedpics-a-photo-sharing-app-for-weddings-raises-4-25-million-series-b/">$4.25 million were invested into a wedding pic sharing app</a> for Gods sake!</em>).</p>
  277. <p>We continue to discuss gravity and touch the fact that Cambridge contributed so much and still is to science and technology, and I am faced with a reality check once again. I make a joke that Newton 'basically invented gravity and screwed us up for space travel" and David laughs.</p>
  278. <p>Talking about Cambridge I really loved the town. It was busting with activity, mostly young students generating incredible amount of cracking energy in the air. Once again I reflect on how original Elite was important in my life, and lives of so many others that grew up in surroundings that did not offer as much inspiration.</p>
  279. <p>Saturday was the time for the Elite: Dangerous premiere event. It was conveniently held at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, with the real-life model of Cobra MKIII revealed among the famous airplanes of our age - Spitfire, Lancaster, Harrier, Concorde...</p>
  280. <p>I really rarely use the word awesome, but this was <em>AWESOME</em>.</p>
  281. <div id="attachment_2033" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2033 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141122_213618-600x442.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="442" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141122_213618-600x442.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141122_213618-150x110.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141122_213618-300x221.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">Cobra MKIII. I had hidden hopes it would fly.</p></div>
  282. <p>Another big thing was getting to play Elite with the latest spec Oculus Rift 3D platform. I can only say that they really got the sensors and movement right (no motion sickness and instant response) but the resolution is still rubbish. 4K on both screens should do the trick, hopefully with the next generation. Having said that I kept returning to the demo table to play the missions, getting really disconnected from reality a few times.</p>
  283. <div id="attachment_2031" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2031 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_20141122-600x473.jpg" alt="Playing Elite: Dangerous at the premiere.

I produced screams as I rammed other spaceships a couple of times</p></div>
  284. <p>The seven hours long event finished around 1am, with David patiently signing Elite books and chatting with fans and I patiently waited in line. I was both exhausted and thrilled to be the part of this.</p>
  285. <p>My prevailing thought was that the human kind needs more people like David Braben, and for that matter Elon Musk or Richard Branson, thinking that "Mars is not that far away." and pushing us further.</p>
  286. <div id="attachment_2038" style="width: 610px" class="wp-caption aligncenter"><img class="wp-image-2038 size-large" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_2848-600x450.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="450" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_2848-600x450.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_2848-150x112.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/IMG_2848-300x225.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /><p class="wp-caption-text">What a glorious night</p></div>
  287. <p>Thank you David!</p>

  363. <content:encoded><![CDATA[<p><img src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/09/10258657156_b7d85424eb_b-600x286.jpg" alt="Determined" width="600" height="286" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-2013" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/10258657156_b7d85424eb_b-600x286.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/10258657156_b7d85424eb_b-150x71.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/10258657156_b7d85424eb_b-300x143.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/10258657156_b7d85424eb_b.jpg 843w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  364. <p>I recently sat down to clean a server hosting a bunch of old WordPress sites. You can imagine what that looked like - about third of them were hacked in every way imaginable. I encountered bitcoin miners, post injections, mass emailers.</p>
  365. <p>I realized that one type of malware produced files named lndex.php (with an l not an i), master.php, security.php, cache.php. </p>
  366. <p>This command will search for the specific file name:</p>
  367. <blockquote><p>find . -name 'lndex.php' </p></blockquote>
  368. <p>Here is how to check for all this these in one command:</p>
  369. <blockquote><p>find . \( -name 'lndex.php' -o -name 'master.php' -o -name 'security.php' -o -name 'cache.php' \) </p></blockquote>
  370. <p>Have in mind some of these may be valid files from your plugins. So you need to inspect these files for suspicious code (base64, binary etc.) </p>
  371. <p>Another way of finding suspicious files is to find out what files have been modified in last say 10 days:</p>
  372. <blockquote><p>find ./ -ctime -10</p></blockquote>
  373. <p>To find *.php files that have been modified between two periods in time:</p>
  374. <blockquote><p>find . -name '*.php' -newermt 2014-08-27 ! -newermt 2014-08-30</p></blockquote>
  375. <p>Find and remove *.php files (for example in a folder they do not belong in like your uploads folder). Warning! Dangerous! Make sure you are in wp-content/uploads folder first!</p>
  376. <blockquote><p>find . -name '*.php' -exec rm -rf {} \;</p></blockquote>
  377. <p>Or if you want to run this in the root of several sites:</p>
  378. <blockquote><p>find . -name '*.php' | grep "wp-content/uploads" | xargs rm </p></blockquote>
  379. <p>One of the hacks I've found ran '/usr/bin/host/ preloading a hacked library. Nasty (but creative) stuff. I used this command to find all PHP files that were containing '/usr/bin/host' string:</p>
  380. <blockquote><p>grep -ri --include=*.php "/usr/bin/host" ./</p></blockquote>
  381. <p>In most cases I decided to delete the infected folders/plugins and re-install them where needed. </p>
  382. <p>Sometime you need to find out what a certain process (that is taking too much CPU for example) is doing?</p>
  383. <blockquote><p>strace -p PID</p></blockquote>
  384. <p>This will filter it to open and close system calls, increase the output message length to 80 chars and dump output to a file.</p>
  385. <blockquote><p>strace -e open,close -s 80 -o log.txt -p PID</p></blockquote>
  386. <p>I remember having particularly strong negative sentiment towards hackers as I was going through all this (to put it mildly). As a result of the entire experience I told to myself that the next big feature we integrate into <a href="https://managewp.com">ManageWP</a> will be the suite of carefully executed security tools that will help automate this process, in the same way we automated updates or backups. People should really not have to go through all this. </p>

  434. <p>You all know parenting can be hard. Once you become a parent, and if you have a job, it seems that everything else is taken away from you - your hobbies, interests, activities you enjoyed.</p>
  435. <p>There are some people that even decide never to become parents for the fear that will "change them", and affect their "identity" and "lifestyle". Of course that is a ridiculous excuse (I can say that having previously enjoyed a lifestyle of sport and numerous hobbies and I can't compare that to the sheer joy of parenting).  Kids replace everything and are much more, they are simply the ultimate treasure.</p>
  436. <p>But I spontaneously discovered that all a parent needs to recharge their "lifestyle batteries" is a one month off, just once in three years. My toddler is with her grandparents, enjoying the seaside of Croatia for this entire month. It was a tough decision to make for my wife and me, but we decided that it is better for her to spend the summer at the sea instead of suffering the heat of the hot asphalt of Belgrade city. And being this small we'll probably miss her more then she will miss us.</p>
  437. <p>So this month I got to do things I never had the chance to do in the past three years:</p>
  438. <ul>
  439. <li>I rode a bicycle all day</li>
  440. <li>I discovered new restaurants</li>
  441. <li>I played video games 10 hours consecutively</li>
  442. <li>I started writing a book</li>
  443. <li>I read a book uninterrupted</li>
  444. <li>I woke up late on a weekend</li>
  445. <li>I rested after work</li>
  446. </ul>
  447. <p>The list goes on.  And it works! I am refreshed, recharged, ready to take on anything.</p>
  448. <p>Which brings the question of how do you achieve this? I can not imagine any other way but having grandparents look up after your kids for a whole month.</p>
  449. <p>Which in turn brings following conclusions:</p>
  450. <ol>
  451. <li>Respect your parents.</li>
  452. <li>Have kids sooner than later, while your parents are still able to take care of them.</li>
  453. <li>Occasional gifts help. Buy them a trip somewhere. Treat them nice.  One month off is a huge reward.</li>
  454. </ol>
  455. <p>Having said all this, and I am currently in the middle of my month off, I am starting to notice that my enthusiasm for the free time is slowing down. With each day I am losing drive to do these 'lifestyle' things. I have two more weeks to go and I am starting to count days. That is because already, all I really want at the end, is to just hug her again.</p>

  513. <p>One of the sure ways to know you love your work is to ask yourself whether you love Sunday nights. I love Sunday nights!</p>
  514. <p>They make me full of positive anticipation for the next morning at work.</p>
  515. <p>And why is that? Because I have a feeling I am going to be among my own people. My friends and comrades-in-arms (err keyboards).</p>
  516. <p>It is a very powerful feeling and I consider it a pinnacle of any professional career.</p>
  517. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1986" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8518-600x400.jpg" alt="Office" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8518-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8518-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8518-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8518.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  518. <p>I heart our office.</p>
  519. <p>It's such a wonderful place to be. In some ways it's even better than my own apartment.</p>
  520. <p>And given how large it is, it's never dull.</p>
  521. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1990" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8976-Recovered-600x400.jpg" alt="Malisa" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8976-Recovered-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8976-Recovered-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8976-Recovered-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8976-Recovered.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>

  523. <p>Our people are wonderful.</p>
  524. <p>I have a feeling that I am working with most talented developers in the country. And it's not only the engineering I am proud of, our customer happiness dept is second to none.</p>
  525. <p>The amount of dedication that I am seeing in these young people is inspiring me every day.</p>
  526. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1985" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7944-600x400.jpg" alt="Moto" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7944-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7944-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7944-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7944.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  527. <p>I am enjoying my time at work.</p>
  528. <p>Even when the meetings are nerve-wracking I like how at the end we all end up wiser. And some of our people are weird enough to make sure there is no shortage of laughs in the halls.</p>
  529. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1984" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7930-600x400.jpg" alt="Chess" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7930-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7930-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7930-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_7930.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  530. <p>There is no shortage of challenges in Devana.</p>
  531. <p>In a meeting with the team yesterday I got asked this:</p>
  532. <p>"This release has being such a big struggle. When will it finally end?" I smiled and replied "As soon as one struggle ends, another one will begin."</p>
  533. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1989" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8779-600x400.jpg" alt="Brainstorming" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8779-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8779-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8779-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8779.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  534. <p>I am surrounded by people smarter than me.</p>
  535. <p>There is nothing more empowering at work than knowing you are in the company of people who are smarter than you.</p>
  536. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1987" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8563-600x400.jpg" alt="Miljenko" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8563-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8563-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8563-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8563.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  537. <p>We are creating our own intellectual property for our future.</p>
  538. <p>And by working on our own products, we are able to play, experiment and try new things.</p>
  539. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1988" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8729-600x400.jpg" alt="Rados" width="600" height="400" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8729-600x400.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8729-150x100.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8729-300x200.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/IMG_8729.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  540. <p>Nowhere else I worked, I didn't have such a demanding and hard-to-please environment.</p>
  541. <p>For example we just had a company-wide, unconditional, salary rise. And there were no cheers, no applause :)</p>
  542. <p>These people are tough, hard working and I grew to love that.</p>
  543. <p><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-1991" src="http://prelovac.com/vladimir//wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Untitled_Panorama1-600x275.jpg" alt="Panorama" width="600" height="275" srcset="https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Untitled_Panorama1-600x275.jpg 600w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Untitled_Panorama1-150x68.jpg 150w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Untitled_Panorama1-300x137.jpg 300w, https://prelovac.com/vladimir/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Untitled_Panorama1.jpg 1024w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></p>
  544. <p>We started giving back from day one.</p>
  545. <p>Ten percent of our profit each month is funneled to helping entrepreneurship in Serbia, through our "<a href="http://zivojinmisic.rs">Zivojin Misic" foundation</a>.</p>

  547. <p>Devana is located in Belgrade, Serbia.</p>
  548. <p>I traveled United States, entire Europe, and good portion of Asia and I am in the position to live and work in basically any city on the planet. But Belgrade is awesome! Not only it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world but there is also abundance of possibilities for young people, families, education, science, research, business. Everything I could wish for!</p>
