04 Apr 2004 :: The guy at the place we were sent to was really bright. Probably too bright for the sickly and sweaty town. At the other hand, his service looked rather shabby. His abilities to repair cars were limited by the lack of such a useful thing like platform. So it was just a booth and a roof above it... [ more.. ]

18 Nov 2001 :: Have you ever died on an electric chair? Have you been shot in a dark basement? Or awakened at 6am by a sound of gas saw? Exactly this happened with me yesterday. I woke up because some asshole was sawing planks. At 6 o'clock... [ 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?
