We have several companies which are incredibly cheap: like Jurki or Batax. Once, a friend of mine has filled up more gasoline than the capacity of his fueltank was. Not suspicious at all. I have never dared to fill my tank there so far.
Here in Serbia fuel on motorways is the most expensive.

A funny story: I would switch to a scientific speech. In a world of science (I guess not only in Slovakia, but worldwide), publication of a paper in scientific journals indexed in international databases (like Current contents, SCI, etc.) with high values of impact factor is considered as a top of a scientist's career.

Also, being cited in other author's paper published in such journal is very prestigious.

Few years ago, media has noticed that one biologist from a domestic university had suddenly gained lots of citations in the most prestigious papers (I think in Nature as well). He was (sometimes very enviously) perceived as the god of Biology until....

...until some investigators realized that his method has been only cited as the "wrong, amateurish, invalid and improper example" (thus criticized) in all those prestigious papers He also had his few minutes of glory

It's the same everywhere. Sometimes these old professors are similar to teenage girls competing who has the most facebook friends

I only know of one slightly similar case: a professor was publishing articles in the subject of how many articles he himself has published so far

Is it a new feature in Google Maps, or I'm the only one that hasn't noticed it before? Now I see that expressways, too, are marked with orange, e.g. some sections of B9, B49, B50 in Western Germany.

Google changes its color-codes all the time.

I wish we could customize that.

No, I think you don't understand :-)
It used to be so:
Motorways: Orange
Expressways + National roads: Yellow
Now:
Motorways + Expressways: Orange
National roads: Yellow

So now expressways are marked the same way as motorways. Actually I like it, I think three different colors would be the best solution but even the current display is significantly better than the previous one.

You are right, they were changed indeed.

Way better than use colors for toll/non-toll roads.

AFAIK it was not exactly like that, rather:

Tolled motorways: orange
Non tolled motorways + expressways: Yellow

At least in Italy.

It is really messy. In Slovakia it is
Orange thick = motorways
Orange thin = expressways
Yellow = primary roads

As far as I remember, orange had been designated solely for tolled roads. Don't know when did they change it.

I just checked my version of Google (I use the old interface): SS3bis, FI-PI-Li, SS38, A3, racc. Salerno-Avelino are all orange! Some of them appear on a thinner line than regular orange for autostrade.

Yes, and no distinction between toll-free expressways that look like full-blown motorways and curvy mountains roads. I'm glad they reversed it after ruining the European mapping a year ago or so. It could be better though.

Around 23 September.

wow how many motorways in Italy all the sudden! but it's not consistent: in Slovenia H7 expressway is yellow, and roads 104 near Ljubljana and 111 near Izola are yellow although techically expressways.

also expressway south of Latisana exit in Italy is yellow.

And in Serbia the Kragujevac-Batocina expressway is marked in yellow, but Belgrade bypass (only 2 lanes) is marked in same orange as the highways.

^it's indeed just trolling. also windows 8(.1) wasn't bad in the sense that was slow or buggy like milenium and vista were, it just lacked start menu because of which some people refused to adapt. otherwise speed-wise was good improvement over 7.

Windows 98 as good? I don't think so.

XP and 7 were the best. I've tried 8 several times and was really surprised how fast it was. But I can't get used to the main menu. As far as I've seen, it looks that the "metro" will be involved in Start menu in W10, which is good.

There is only one thing I can't understand: Windows is the number one platform in enterprising. And version by version, they've been adapting the interface to teen girls.
