Visitor No. 2,222,222

The visitor number 2,222,222 was Google searching for Václav Klaus and the second hit after Wikipedia that he or she was offered was an interview with the Czech president.
See 89 more articles about Václav Klaus on this blog.
The visitor from XS4ALL.NL in Roosendaal, Noord-Brabant, the Netherlands used Windows 2000 with Internet Explorer 6.0 and JavaScript 1.3. Chances were that the browser could collapse. :-) But eventually it didn't because the user has displayed at least 5 pages on this blog. If he or she happens to see this page, he may write a comment and obtain the right to submit an article (or advertisement) here.

Despite the old operating system, the resolution is 1680 x 1050. I hope that he or she is already reading Blauwe planeet in groene kluisters by Václav Klaus. Congratulations!


Just an update about the Czech X-Factor. One week ago, during the "Banana Night" dedicated to tropical music, the best song - in my opinion - was "Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Mr Ondřej Ruml. He used a audio parroting machine to clone himself and replaced a whole orchestra with his voice!

Someone else has even improved the video by mixing it with Bobby McFerrin. ;-) Yesterday, during the Czechoslovak Night, six finalist had to sing one Czech and one Slovak song. I think that Miss Kamila Nývltová's version of the Slovak song "Vyznanie" (Confession) was the best performance.

In the original, this song recently elected as the "Slovak pop-music hit of the 20th century" was sung by Ms Marika Gombitová, a Slovak singer who was unfortunately seriously injured in a car accident in 1980. Kamila is a completely different generation. For example, she speaks no Slovak, having no idea what e.g. "izba" (room) means. It's amazing especially because even Czech has a (somewhat ancient) word "jizba". But her performance was great, anyway.

The next round is the Night of Revived (Dead) Legends.
