I’ve watched the first 5 episodes of “Battlestar Galactica” season 3 and, so far — I like it. It’s still very “on the edge” and very intriguing (as opposed to, I don’t know, “Lost”?). But the fifth episode (“Collaborators”) kind of annoyed me. Of course, it all had to happen, it’s a plausible consequence of war, yadda3, but it just seemed a bit…weird. I can’t put a finger on what exactly bugged me, but I know that I don’t usually shout “Oh, come on!” every 5 minutes when watching my favorite TV show.

After reading about “Heroes” on Blogography, I just had to see the show (not because Mr. Simmer didn’t like the first two episodes, but simply because it’s SF — I felt obligated, you know?). So I sat down and watched the first two episodes. And then, a couple days later, I watched the next four in a row. I guess the conclusion is obvious: I like it a lot. And yes, it’s not exactly a fast-paced show, but I feel it’s got just the right tempo. It kept me occupied for 3 hours without even thinking about the time and I’m really looking forward to the next episodes. Hopefully, the creators won’t blow this one.

What else… Oh — it seems that I’m not the only one with a poor purple monkey. Here’s a post on B3TA boards that clearly shows another case of the, ahem, eye disorder.

Industri has entered a beta phase and I’m looking forward to testing it out. Tig has ported it to Doom3 engine and I just hope he’ll find time to finish it one day.

I’ve coded the HTML for Up&Underground magazine’s website. It runs on WordPress 2.0.4 with some minor tweaks. The site is in Croatian. It was designed by my friend Lina Kovacevic.

I’ve ported my own site to WP (locally), but I have yet to find the time and the will to upload it and replace the current version. I didn’t touch the design due to lack of time (I’m back in ‘school‘ once again) and ideas. That also means that I’ve skipped the November CSS Reboot, but it seems I’m not the only one. I guess the event has lost its charm, and it probably takes a B. Adam Howell (where’s he hiding lately?) charisma to pull it off properly.

James Brown performs in Zagreb today. I didn’t want to go. I just don’t like him. He is the funktastic break-the-beat-and-hit-me daddy-o, but I’m not really a fan. I know who he is, and I’m thankful for the beats and inspiration, but that’s it. Also, I must say that I was quite disappointed by Public Enemy’s performance last month. They were so bad that I had to get dead drunk and bow down to the porcelain god the next morning. Their comic sucked too.

Regarding my previous post:
In my own humble words of conclusion, Microsoft’s Expression Web designer (why not stick with Frontpage, eh?) is a solid copy of Dreamweaver, but with standard Office look. It’s a good tool (as far as I can tell, from my brief encounter), but it’ll have to be half the price of Dreamweaver when it comes out, if it’s to succeed. Time will tell.

And my time tells me it’s time to watch TV now ;)

Another reboot, and a slightly different approach

Greetings, Earthlings!

I’m glad that the Css Reboot site is up and running, I really enjoy browsing the reboots. But I don’t like the way sites are listed, I prefer the visual browsing using screenshots, or at least let there be a pure list of sites with direct links so I don’t have to click first on the site’s page on CssReboot, and then proceed by clicking again on the site link. Give people more options, mr. Howell ;)

Update: screenshot browsing is available – the Reboot hadn’t been officially started when I posted this a couple of hours ago. My apologies :)

My reboot? I started thinking about it some two or three months ago, with the first version completed in March.After a while, I didn’t like it so much, so I started again from scratch. The next version was done, ready, good to go about three weks ago – but it didn’t grow on me. The third try is what you’re looking at and I’m very satisfied with the final outcome. I’ve always loved the book/paper style, and the Moleskine notebook I’ve bought a while ago really inspired me. Also, I wanted to go back to a more ‘organic’ design.

I’ve removed the ‘web’ category as I haven’t been active in that field for a while. I thought I better emphasise what’s most important to me: Music. That’s why the link letters are red, so my visitors can easily spot it and understand instantly that it’ll lead them to the most interesting part of the site :) Also, the music pages are a wee bit more descriptive now and tracks can be pre-listened in-page thanks to the XSPF Flash music player.
Tracks are available in Mp3 and Ogg Vorbis formats and I plan to upload the lossless FLAC files soon.

Notice: at the moment, I’m having some PHP problems which may result in my front page displaying only two last posts and no ‘recent’ list at the bottom ? on random intervals: now it works, now it doesn’t. I’ll try to fix it by the end of the day. If anyone has any idea why a php script could suddenly stop and break, then please e-mail me. I’m pretty sure it’s not so much my coding as it’s the server’s configuration. Fixed, getID3 was having a fight with php.

I’m off to lunch. Thanks for visiting my website, I hope you’ll enjoy your stay :)

Css Reboot – November 2005

It’s been a nice, productive Halloween for me.
Today, I took a shower, had breakfast and lunch, did some work, fixed problems with my desktop computer, washed the dishes, smoked no cigarettes (I suppose I could light one now, it’s past midnight, heh) and I’ve successfully rebooted this website. Yay for me, right? ;)
Header pictures were shot by me in Japan this summer, there’s 90 of them showing up randomly.

Spread the love, people, spread the love.

And a quote to remember:

“I woke up this morning and I shit a squirrel. I mean it. Literally. Hell of it is, damn thing’s still alive. So I’ve got this shit-covered squirrel down in the office. Don’t know what to name it.” — Anchorman

Guess who’s back from miles away

Sooo, like, I’m back. Wicked crazy Japan, gotta love it :)

Took me a while to adjust to the life back here in Croatia, full of daily headaches, worries, unfinished businesses. But also some sweet, sweet people I haven’t seen in over two months ;)

I haven’t had much time for posting during my stay in Japan – my apologies, won’t happen ever again.

A short summary of 9 weeks in Nagakute (Nagoya, Tokyo, Kyoto, Yokohama too…): I realised what a great time I’ve had the second I landed back here. I loved what I’ve seen of Japan (tho, I’ve seen so little, sadly), the people are definitely different than the Europeans, but, as in any world, the ‘human climate’ changes from place to place. I’ve found it very easy to adjust to the way things work in Japan. But, since I have no intention on writing a book, nor I’m that good with words and explanations, I’ll just say that, for me, it was amazing.

Next: the goody gadgets.

  1. Sony PSP – can you say OMG?
  2. Sony DSC M1 – yeah, call me a Sony Fanboy. The picture quality isn’t -that- great (I’d recommend Canon or Panasonic Lumix over any Sony DSC), but it’s the ease of use, the rotating display, surprisingly long battery life, up to 1cm macro shots and 57 minutes of movie time on a 1gb memory stick, why I bought it. And it looks good too ;)
  3. Buffalo USB 160GB 7200 HDD
  4. A koto, a violin, a couple drums, shakers, a silver Zippo lighter from the fifties, bunch of t-shirts, comics…

Back to reality: 20 days until the 2nd Css Reboot and, for a change, I’m ready for this one.
Still working on same two websites, preparing new designs for launch in the next two weeks.
‘Directing’ a 30min ‘documentary’ about Expo (mostly about Croatian staff), losing my mind, I have 35 days to finish it.
