28 Nov 2002 :: The role of Pepe was performed by Gheorge Dinica, the artist who usually plays negative characters with a bit of vulgarity in behaviour and the way he talks. Being born in Bucharest in 1934 he's probably the oldest and wisest actor in the cast... [ more.. ]

[ 12th Nov 2002 ] a major site update | leave a comment |

Yes, it's done now. The fully remade site including the engine that was rewritten from scratch, was launched. It's just been released in a voyage through the deep waters of Internet. Like it usually happens to me, after the idea to remake everything came to my mind last Sunday, two nights appeared to be lost. I was sitting in front of my home computer coding. I feel it's incredibly difficult to sleep knowing that a good idea is standing still when it can go on much faster. One of my favourite sayings is "will catch some sleep in the other world".

I'd been thinking for a long time to rewrite the site. The point is that since the moment I made the first variant a lot of time has passed. The reality around me has changed, and myself I changed too. Some of my interests went away, but some filled the space that eliberated. No, I don't program less these days. At the other hand, obviously, I started writing much more, thus the "news" section suffered a metamorphosis into real full-scale weekly notes by their only author. And the nice digital camera toy I bought recently just made me write an advanced engine for a site with a flexible shell for photographs.

Another thing I noticed was that in spite that the number of software I wrote grew, the pages about them didn't differ a lot one from another. The new engine doesn't care, it just takes programs' details from its configuration even not knowing the amount of them, so new ones can be added easily without a need to add another HTML page or something.

Also the personal biography exhibitionism hanging on the site from the university times was thrown away. Enough. It would better to be published somewhere in a book ;)

Finally, the site now is really multi-lingual. It's possible to add more supported languages easily. The most interesting feature about it are comments for photos in several languages. The Gallery application cannot do it till now, thus it was punished and thrown away. The internationalization stuff was made also because I'm thinking of adding more languages. It feels like soon one of famous Romanian magazines about computers will start publishing a serie of publications by yours truly, and it would be nice to meet such an even having a working Romanian translation of the site. At the other hand, it will be damn difficult to translate every propaganda note into the two languages after it's initially written in Russian. Maybe, there is someone to assist me?
