Using an iBook G4

filed under:personal @ 11:39:04

I'm posting using an iBook G4. I borrowed it for a few days, first time having a Mac all to myself. I have used Macs before, but always just to quickly check my email or something equally fast. Now I have a chance to try a few more things. It's also a good opportunity to see how my web sites look on Safari 1.1; so far so good, just a bit of difference in the size of the text that on Safari shows bolder then on IE6, Firefox or Opera on PC.

Syd Barret passed away:

Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond

My own code

filed under:personal @ 13:53:45

This site is now powered by my own hand written code.

The features are almost the same as before, just much simpler. I used only 20% of what Wordpress made possible anyway. There are still a few things that I want to add but the core is done.

Just got back from Shanghai.

The temperature was between 0 and -4 degrees Centigrades..

It was a very short and hard trip, I hope next time I will have more time. I posted a picture of the Pudong skyline in the sidebar and more pics will be in the photos archive (not yet).

I'm too tired to write a long post, check out the Wikitravel entry for more info on Shanghai.

A thought

filed under:personal @ 18:22:56

Today I had a thought, too long to be put in between the ones that show randomly in the banner:

“ I believe in faith because it is easier to do so

I believe in shaping my own destiny because it is easier to do so

To know myself is to doubt and that is where I learn. ”

..actually, I don't know if I learn but I do try and at least I can see that I should.

Awaiting for a phone line and Javascript menu

filed under:personal @ 10:56:14

I'm still waiting for the phone line...

I just came up with a new Javascript powered menu for a friend. I will post about it in the “studies” category whenever I have a Internet connection again.

I am done moving but I still have no phone line so...I'm checking emails from public Internet places .

The spam has a way of getting in the way. On my computer I got all the message rules set up to move all known addresses to the respective folders and leave the spam in the inbox (the server that hosts my work web site doesn't allow me to set up anti spam filters) but from a public place I just have to go through each email and delete spam until I'm left with only the proper emails. A lenghty and boring process.

Hopefully I will get the phone line connected soon..
