Welcome to my world

New Headings....

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 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 Cool

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. 

More updates, more upgrades, more stuff gets broken

Please hold on while we update the software running this site...

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 :)

Site revamp coming up

This site has mostly been a frontend for my server and various other sites. The time has come to revamp the whole site, perhaps upgrade to a new CMS and what not... Ii'm thinking purple as the new base color... and with a new design, new color scheme comes ofcourse a decent domain: as of now the site is available through :-) More news will follow once I actually get round to rebuild the site.

EVE Meeting photos are up!

Finally I managed to pull myself together and upload the photos of the London EVE-Online 2006 meet in de Hoggshead. This brilliant meeting was an unofficial meeting set up by DJ Xyliana and pulled hundreds of EVE players from all over the world.

You can find the photos in the Photo Gallery.

Bugatti Veyron widescreen wallpapers

After watching Top Gear and the Bugatti Veyron I looked for some decent wallpapers for widescreen laptops. Guess what, there are none! Rediculously most wallpapers out there are 800x600 or if you're lucky 1024x768 - a resolution none of my computers uses anymore.

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 ;-) )
