Where science meets art

This would be a nice picture for the category “But what is it?”, but we spare you the frustration. This is the winning picture of the Olympus BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition® which recognizes outstanding images of life science specimens captured through light microscopes, using any magnification, any illumination technique and any brand of equipment.

Basically this is a competition for another kind of geeks, the ones really handy with microscopes, light and photoshop and a special interest for the extreme small specimens on this earth. You’re looking at a frontal section of Phalangium opilio (commonly known as Harvestman or Daddy longlegs) eyes, an ordinary animal you probably wouldn’t pay much attention to. As a geek freak I’m now wondering if I should buy a microscope, I mean how cool is this?!

Anyway, it just reminds me there’s beauty all around us everyday but most of the time we (at least I) fail to notice it. Check the other amazing pica’s here.

New weapon in developers recruitment: TECHIE GIRLS!

November 24, 2010 by Remco | 2 Comments


Besides an astronomic salary, health insurance, THR, many holidays and a great location we at Tokobagus unintendedly found a new way to attract talents and keep our current developers.

Techie girls!

I mean what’s more cool than a techie girl that can join conversations about Ruby on Rails, PHP frameworks and hot geek stuff? Well, I tell you, ATTRACTIVE TECHIE GIRLS like our Chi, I mean that’s super-duper-uber-mega-catwoman-cool. Can we get a HELL YEAH!!?? Can we get an AMEN!!!??? Of course all our male developers full hearted agree with that. First question our developers ask our competitors when they try to recruit one of our talents is no longer about the salary or benefits but about the female co-workers, EAT THAT COMPETITORS!

Anyway, every system has it’s flaws as you can see in the striking cartoon made by Eka, one of our talented designers, which show that having techie-girls in the office doesn’t always have a positive effect on productivity. But +100 for Chi’s solution: BIG UP YOURSELF! RESPECT! AAAAIII. But in Marlon’s defense, Catwoman for god sake, Halle Berry, can someone give a nicer compliment than that?

Anyway, talented developers of the world, you can send your CV to jobs-at-tokobagus-dot-com, equal chances for everyone but we prefer you being female between the age of 20 and 30. Don’t forget to add a recent photograph to your application, makes the pre-selection a lot more fun for our HR guy.

[NSFW] Geeks love fashion!

pictures here!A recent wild guess reliable survey by Sangatpedas shows that 89% of our visitors loves to spend their time watching women fashion. Just walking around in the Tokobagus office I noticed our male colleagues taking an interest in fashion, mainly women fashion but that must be a coincidence. Our support department is diligently moderating and nurturing our fashion category (which is now the biggest one out there) to make it the best of the best , thanks guys for your unselfish efforts!

Anyway, with the weekend coming up who are we to deny you the latest trends, the creme-de-la-creme, the cream of the crop? After all, Sangatpedas is all about shamelessly providing the information our readers want, so what the heck, maybe we can even welcome some more female readers.
