I’m a dreamer, a distant dreamer :)

Yes, some of you might recognize the title words as lyrics by Duffy. It’s true, I like the album, a lot. Her official site, however, not so much (I’ll be thinking of Vulcans for the rest of my life everytime someone says ‘however’, no doubt about that).

But I will not steal from my own evening TV time to talk about that. Nuh-uh.

So, believe it or not, I’ve been officialy employed for a month and a half now. Netipi─Źni d.o.o. is where I now do what I used to do from home. Code websites, that is :)

In short: I’m satisfied, and (thank god!) the people who work there are quite (haha) normal and easy to get along with.

My backache is killing me, and I haven’t been able to sleep enough lately, but I’ll blame that on the godawful summer in the city too, not just on my impossible way of life and inability to adjust myself to the 9-5 routine. I’ll survive, don’t worry ;)

What else…

You know how WordPress adds ‘category’ in urls when the page is an category archive? I’ve created a plugin that gets
rid of it. But you’ll also need another plugin to make it work. I’ve
been testing it for the past few weeks and haven’t noticed any hickups.
Read on.

I’ve also switched from TinyMCE to WYMeditor and I’m liking it so far. You can download it as a WordPress plugin from here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/simple-wymeditor/. I’ve tweaked its CSS files to suit the WordPress 2.5 color scheme better:WYMeditor

If you like it, you can download the tweaked files from here:

wymeditor-wp25-css.zip

Just paste the two directories over in the ‘wymeditor’ folder (the one residing inside the ‘simple-wymeditor’ folder, if you’re using it as a WordPress plugin) and overwrite the files.


I installed Habari and I like it – it’s fast and feels stable, but it’s also very young and needs more work. I’ll dig in when I find some time.

I’m working with Silverstripe, too, but I can’t say that I’m becoming fond of it. Dunno… Although it seems to be a great piece of software, it just doesn’t feel right for me.

I know I had more stuff in my head that I wanted to write about, but I can’t really remember anything else right now, I’m feeling a bit sleepish :)

I’ll be taking two weeks off starting next Tuesday, gotta start working on my final paper and get that diploma out of my way. Fingers crossed ;)

Music? Something new? Hmm. We’ll see.

Laters :D

Host body switched in a race for survival

After 3 days (and counting), I finally know who to blame for this huge outage. This is a quote from Abnormis.net:

Everyone can thank the lovely hacker “Jamaycka” for the problems we are currently having. You can see what a wonderful guy he is having hacked over 5700 websites at the following URL: http://www.zone-h.com/component/option,
com_attacks/Itemid,43/filter_defacer,JaMaYcKa/

Wow. That guy certainly has something to be proud of. Shutting down hundreds of websites at once, wow. For what fucking purpose? I’d feel much better leaving Abnormis’ services if it were their fault, if they fucked up something, but now… I want to strap that guy(s) or girl(s) to a splintery wooden chair, naked, and than bring in some small animals or insects that like to crawl themselves into body cavities. OK, maybe that’s a little harsh (hee… >:) ), but this is quite a mess that person has made. A bunch of website is unreachable, (Breedart.org, among others) and Abnormis will be out of business for a while, I presume. And that is wrong on too many levels.
So, I’ve transfered my domain to MediaTemple and it’s all working fine now. Also, I was quite surprised how fast the DNS switch happened — 5 minutes (maybe even less) after I’ve updated the nameservers in GoDaddy‘s control panel, my domain was working once again, e-mail too. I don’t know who to thank for this, I was expecting at least a 24h transfer period. Nice :)

I’ve made another (fairly noticeable?) switch too, I’m now using WordPress. The theme you’re looking at started as a small modification of the default ‘Kubrick’ theme, but I didn’t want it to drown in the sea of similarly looking blogs, so I gave it a touch of… um… me, hehe.

Enjoy your stay, feel free to leave comment, and please report any weird stuff. Thanks for visiting :)
