Cool huh !!!
Finally this blog has some decent look. After 2-3 days of coding xhtml/css and playing around with the few graphical elements this theme went public under the name Xedunism – Cheerz! I know it is not very colorful but I wanted a nice, clean and easy to read layout. I hope you like it and if you have any comments please drop me a line :)
There are still bits and pieces from Kubrick Theme so – http://binarybonsai.com/wordpress/kubrick/
Floral element (top right) comes from – http://ro-stock.deviantart.com/art/Floral-Deco-Brushes-2-54001452
RSS Icons are from the Oxygen Icon Theme – http://www.oxygen-icons.org/
If there are any licenses i have broke please contact me and i will take the needed measures.
Updated: MooTools vs JQuery vs Prototype vs YUI vs Dojo Comparison Revised
Test results (Lower is better):
*For example FF (XP-NA) is Firefox 184.108.40.206 with no addons (extensions) enabled running under Windows XP
You can check the actual numbers (in ms) and the full browsers information in the table bellow:
|Mozilla Firefox 220.127.116.11 – no addons – winxp
|Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 – winxp
|Mozilla Firefox 22.214.171.124 – linux
|Opera 9.26 – winxp
|Opera 9.26 – linux
|Internet Explorer 7 – no addons – winxp
|Internet Explorer 7 – winxp
|Internet Explorer 6
|Internet Explorer 6 – linux (wine)
|Safari 3.0.4 Beta 3 – winxp
|Konqueror – linux
- Safari under Windows XP is really blazing fast
- Mootools and Prototype JS do not work under Konqueror (KDE’s default browser)
- Linux browsers are relatively slower against their Windows versions
- Prototype is insanly slow under Internet Explorer
Disclaimer: This benchmark is somehow subjective because the test results depend on the current OS load and other factors. If you have any corrections or comments on this topic I will gladly review them and will revise the results if needed.
On 15-th and 16-th of February in a mountain hut(near Sofia) took place the first CodeCamp meeting in Bulgaria.I took part in it as a speaker and it was great experience for me. Thanks for inviting me!
Organization: Generally we had all we needed for good discussion-based seminar with few areas we can improve:
- We need a better place because this hut proved as not quite comfortable for living. Also connectivity will be great.
- For more attendants we will have to think about organized transportation.
People who attended CodeCamp:
Emil Stoychev, Hristo Iliev, Ivaylo Bratoev, Vladimir Dimitrov, Stefan Dobrev, Deian Varchev, Martin Kulov, Jordan Dimitrov, Svetlin Nakov, Peter Velichkov (me), Radi Buhleva ;)
and many other friends (you know who you are)
You can find more information on Codecamp’s site
It was fun and interesting with lots of knowledge gained. For the next time I wish only warm weather and no accidents
Just checked out an interview with Sebastian Kuegler (KDE developer) about the upcoming features in KDE4.1 :
I think the part that most people — just like me — are really looking forward to is an improved Plasma desktop shell. It really is the most visible part of the desktop. The good news here is that Plasma, a relatively young subcommunity within KDE is really alive and kicking. We’ve already been able to fix most of the problems that were still there in 4.0.0, and if we continue to keep the current pace of development, it looks like we have exceeded feature parity in those part with the 3.5 series already by summer.
Then of course, I’m looking forward to KDE-PIM in 4.1. It will make use of the Akonadi storage framework and as such be more stable and usable as the 3.5 series. Then, just recently, Dragon Player has been merged into our 4.1 tree. Dragon Player is a very simple but powerful video player, which of course makes use of Phonon, our new multimedia framework. For non-Linux/UNIX users, 4.1 will also bring the first stable applications to Mac OSX and Windows, which is another very big thing in my eyes.
Other features include more scripting support, newly ported applications (Amarok for example seems to be aiming for a summer release as well), performance improvements all over the place, new plugins for the KWin window manager with its nifty compositing features, and many more.
This really suggests what I expect from the KDE 4 series, new, innovative and really exciting features and improvements at a steady pace. With the KDE 4
series, we’ll simply outperform our proprietary competitors in terms of speed of innovation and user orientation.

Update: If you are looking for patching VMware for Linux 2.6.25 Kernel – check here
Currently latest VMware Player and Workstation do not install under Linux 2.6.24 Kernel. This is a short how-to resolve the gcc/make errors that arise while configuring (vmware-configure.pl)
1. Download the latest vmware player (workstation) – currently VMware Player 2.0.2 Build 59824
url: http://www.vmware.com/download/player/ – Read the Eula before downloading
2. tar xzvf VMware-player-2.0.2-59824.i386.tar.gz
3. cd vmware-player-distrib/
4. ./vmware-install.pl – Proceed as usual when asked to run vmware-config.pl answer NO
5. Download the latest any-any patch – currently vmware-any-any-update-116
6. tar xzvf vmware-any-any-update-116.tgz
7. cd vmware-any-any-update116
8. ./runme.pl and when asked to run vmware-config.pl answer YES
9. Configure as usual
