  • разгледах я чак днес по-подробно; като фон течеше lux aeterna - внушителна комбинация ;) на страници 13 и 14 бих предпочел да видя малко повече информация относно връзката на компанията с България, начина по който те са свързани, дребни забележки по текстовото оформление - предполагам неразбориите се дължат по-скоро на интеграцията със slideshare; иначе отлично!
