Человек на часах
Рассказ впервые опубликован в журнале "Русская мысль" в 1887 году № 4 под названием "Спасение погибавшего". Впоследствии название было изменено автором. В основе сюжета лежит реальный факт: об этом сообщает автор в первой главе, об этом же свидетельствуют мемуары тех лет. В рассказе действуют реальные исторические личности: Н. И. Миллер генерал-лейтенант, директор Александровского лицея, С. А. Кокошкин в 30-е годы петербургский обер-полицеймейстер, Н. П. Свиньин полковник. В сборнике "Повести и рассказы", изданном С. Н. Шубинским в 1887 году, рассказ "Человек на часах" по просьбе автора был напечатан вместе с другими рассказами "о праведниках".
The Clocks is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the UK by the Collins Crime Club on 7 November 1963 and in the US by Dodd, Mead and Company the following year. It features the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. The UK edition retailed at sixteen shillings and the US edition at.50. The novel is notable for the fact that Poirot never visits any of the crime scenes or speaks to any of the witnesses or suspects. He is challenged to prove his claim that a crime can be solved by the exercise of the intellect alone. The novel marks the return of partial first-person narrative, a technique that Christie had largely abandoned earlier in the Poirot sequence but which she had employed in the previous Ariadne Oliver novel, The Pale Horse 1961. There are two interwoven plots: the mystery Poirot works on from his armchair while the police work on the spot, and a Cold War spy story told in the first person narrative. Reviews at the time of publication found the writing up to Christies par, but found negatives: the murder of a character about to add useful information was considered "corny" and "unworthy" of the author, and "not as zestful". In contrast, Barnards review in 1990 said it was a "lively, well-narrated, highly unlikely late specimen" of Christies writing. He loved the clocks at the start, and was oddly disappointed that they were red herrings.
Apple II system clocks
Apple II system clocks, also known as real-time clocks, were commodities in the early days of computing. A clock/calendar did not become standard in the Apple II line of computers until 1986 with the introduction of the Apple IIGS. Although many productivity programs as well as the ProDOS operating system implemented time/date functions, users would have to manually enter this information every time they turned the computer on. Power users often had their Apple IIs peripheral slots completely filled with expansion cards, so third party vendors came up with some unique solutions in order to mitigate this problem with products like the Serial Pro and No-Slot Clock.
Original description The length of the ventricose shell attains 5 mm, its diameter 2 mm. Two forms have been seen by us, differing in colour as follows: - In what would be considered the type, an ashy brown is the prevailing hue, filleted round the whorls transversely with bluish white. In the other, a handsomer variety, a warm ochre with flecking and median brown linear banding round the three last whorls, which are seven in number altogether. The form of the shell is oblong. It is very solid, obtusely ribbed with fine spiral striae. The outer lip is extremely thickened. The inner lip is simple. The aperture is ovate. The columella is simple.
The length of the shell attains 8 mm, its diameter 4 mm. Original description The fusiform, somewhat solid shell becomes attenuate towards the apex. It contains seven whorls. The whorls of the protoconch are imperfect in all the examples examined. They are tinged with blackish brown. The subsequent whorls are turreted, tumid and brightly ochraceous. They are ornamented with strong longitudinal ribs, which number eleven on the body whorl. These are crossed by spiral close striae, which are not shown on elder worn specimens. The most conspicuous feature is a series of darker blackish-brown zones.one just above the suture of each whorl and another in the centre of the lowest. These zones are interrupted and only appear between the ribs, the remainder of the surface being painted with light brown scattered dots and flames, a series of light spiral maculations just below the sutures being specially prominent. The aperture is narrow, oblong, the dark zone shows transversely across the interior. The outer lip is incrassate, sinus very obscure. The columella is straight and stained with brown at the base.
Cryptophasa themerodes is a moth in the family Xyloryctidae. It was described by Turner in 1904. It is found in Australia, where it has been recorded from Queensland. The wingspan is about 35 mm. The forewings are whitish, intimately mixed with grey, and with some dark fuscous scales. The discal dots are scantily represented by dark fuscous scales, the first at one-third, the second beyond the middle and the third on the fold obliquely beyond the first. There are several dark fuscous dots near the termen. The hindwings are whitish, towards the termen suffused with pale fuscous.
The length of the shell attains 14 mm, its diameter 5 mm. Original description The slender, acute shell is strongly sculptured, with pale brownish clouding on a yellowish white ground. The protoconch is smooth, inflated, and consists of 1½ whorl, followed by about eight sculptured whorls. The suture is distinct, undulated, strongly appressed, thick-edged, with a strong cord immediately behind the strongly constricted smooth anal fasciole. Other spiral sculpture consists of on the spire one or two strong peripheral cords, swollen and almost angulated where they override the ribs. On the body whorl there are six or seven cords with much wider interspaces and as many more smaller close-set threads on the siphonal canal. The axial sculpture consists of seven or eight very prominent short ribs on the penultimate whorl; fading out on the body whorl, and rather prominent widely spaced incremental lines most conspicuous on the body whorl. The aperture is subovate. The anal sulcus is conspicuous, rounded, with a marked subsutural callus. The outer lip is thin, moderately arcuate, not varicose. The inner lip shows a coat of enamel with the anterior edge raised. The columella is short, straight. The siphonal canal is hardly differentiated from the aperture.

Theseis was a third-person action-adventure video game developed by Greek indie development team Track7 Games. Development began in 2004, and the game was planned for release on the Xbox 360 and PC in early 2008. The game would be set in modern-day Athens and star a duo of paranormal investigators caught between mundane and supernatural worlds. The game would have featured a cast of characters from Greek mythology, while the plot would have players follow clues in search of a long-lost ancient artifact that could spell disaster for the entire human race. Despite garnering a lot of interest by both local and international media, Theseis languished in development hell for almost half a decade, before being unceremoniously cancelled in August 2009 due to a shortage in funds.
