My site has always been a frontend for the many other projects I ran on my servers. I post every now and then some articles but I never actively *did* something with my site. Even though I get a steady number of visitors thanks to the (appearantly) interesting articles I did write I'm now taking it all into a new direction.
I'm currently revamping the site and its categories to support a more blog-like approach. I've integrated my site from the study tour to japan (Bonsai) and I am currently rebuilding the photo gallery on here. One of the major issues I want to address is the extreme bandwidth I spend on deep-linked images. I don't mind people deep-linking preview images but I do mind linking to the full sized images as most sites only require a small preview anyway. So starting now, only registered users can view the full-sized images I'm hosting here.
On another note, I've finally finished the move to my cyberwizzard.nl domain - no more frames! Currently I'm checking if I can find any more trouble after ditching the old domain (wrong links, wrong mail addresses etc) but so far it looks like the transfer is complete.
As a general request, I would love suggestions for a blogging client for linux. I'm currently using Windows Live Writer which (I hate to admit) is working great but for linux there seems to be nothing remotely in the same class, user-friendly or feature wise. I'm trying to get KBlogger to work on my KDE4 desktop but so far not with any success.
Which brings me to the last part of this update: I will post more Gentoo (or linux related) stuff on this site. I keep running into problems which I solved or keep solving (because I forgot how I did it last time) and I'm fed up with it
P.S. I'm still working on the layout, I still want to do something with anime but I can seem to finish something I like so right now your stuck with this template I found somewhere which I liked.
Actually this is meant quite literally: we are currently updating every piece of software on this server as well as updating the CMS for this site.
One of the site effects of that upgrade is the breaking of loads of stuff on this site. The guest book is now permanently off-line as it is useless. The download section has been fixed and is working again. The photo gallery is sort of working: after turning off the SEF url support its working (but it should work with SEF enabled as well) - we'll ook into it...
Hopefully all this will pay off by streamlining the website and even boost the development of the new layout. (Which is probably delayed until the next version of the CMS software is ready).
Just bare with us - eventually everything will be back up and running :)
You can find the photos in the Photo Gallery.
So I decided to whack up some of my own and while I was at it I thought about sharing them :)
Mind you that this first batch is all the same wallpaper but with different finishing touches. Right now I made them at 1440x900 as thats my native resolution. If and when I create more wallpapers I will post it here. Meanwhile, use the Contact form for requests :-)
You can find the wallpapers in the gallery, under the random storage gallery (hard to miss as it shows the first wallpaper as a highlight ;-) )
