Russia: Hyde Park; WinRAR; Hot Water; etc.

A few links to recent posts at IZO: president Medvedev “to create a Russian Speaker's Corner, based on Hyde Park”; a Russian ad agency shows “how the WinRAR data compression utility shrinks files” – “bad idea, badly executed”; a useful link for Moscow-based readers who'd like to know when there'll be no hot water in their apartments; a translation of LJ user retromaniak‘s post on buying porn in Moscow; a link to LJ user militarev‘s post on “a special [mobile phone] tariff to Orthodox believers that includes free calls on religious holidays.”
