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:


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

Express yourself

I’ve just stumbled upon Microsoft’s new Expression product family. I actually followed a link from a Forever Geek post about the new Microsoft favicon and noticed the announcement on MS’ front page. And, while we’re at it, I’ve read the FG post via RSS in Mozilla Thunderbird (with a little bit of Forumzilla help).

Fun. But I’m not sure if I like the new Microsoft favicon…

There are 3 products in the Expression family: Graphic, Interactive and Web — all Designers. You can watch a short (~3 min) video presentation of the products when you click on “See it in action” yellow button (up right, can’t miss it), or just follow this link. I’ll know what I think of the suite when I try it out, but I don’t understand why I have to uninstall Office 2007 Beta before installing any of the Expression products. What if I won’t like it? Uninstall E and reinstall MSO2K7b? Pain in the ass.

So, like, you know, I’m downloading one beta and two customer technology previews, hoping it’s not a total waste of time. Can Microsoft really top the CS2+Dreamweaver 8 combo?

Comments are welcome.
