Mass Photo feather for Chyrp

It took me a couple of days (the whole weekend minus time for watching livestreams) and a lot of effort (I don’t know PHP and generally can’t write anything more complex than simple scripts), but it seems to work. The result is my previous post. The feather (extention for Chyrp blog CMS that provides new format for your posts) is based on the default Photo feather, except there’s no Alt-Text field.


When will I stop wasting money?

I have a serious problem with money handling. I just can’t stop spending them, especially if I’m bored. And if only I’d spend them on something I actually need, like a couple of HDD to recover data from the broken ones; or a new pair of shoes, new pants; or at least lunches, for gods’ sake. But no, I prefer to starve myself every day, to wear clothes with holes for months if not years, etc.


Opera SlackBuild

Not Presto, but the new, Blink one, that is based on Chromium. Shitty or not, this is new Opera, and this is their first release for Linux. It’s been only a year… Anywho, I wrote a SlackBuild for it. It also makes use of alienBOB’s Chromium PepperFlash package, so now you can have the latest Adobe Flash in two browsers (which are basically the same thing though). Be warned that:


Popcorn Time SlackBuild

Yesterday I discovered Popcorn Time. No, I’ve heard about it for a while, but I only tried to watch something with it yesterday. (If you’re interested, it was Madagascar trilogy after I watched this video.) It’s very convenient: just fire up the app, choose your movie and hope you have enough popcorn. You may say something about piracy. Yes, the app is very controversial. But I have two reasons to use it.


Avatar update

I guess everyone who knows me online are used to see my avatar, because I’ve been using it since at least 2009, probably even earlier. It was made for me by my friend ZiPo, I like it a lot and don’t plan to change it any time soon. In case you’re clueless, that’s an avatar I’m talking about:

Terriermon with byakugan

Last night I received an e-mail from DZAladan. Well, actually at first he wrote me on Steam that he couldn’t send it to my server for some reason (I blame M$’s routing), so I gave him another address. His e-mail contained the following:


I bought a bicycle

…thus blowing my month’s budget. Let’s count: about $400 for the bicycle, $200 for renting storage (because I don’t have any room in my apartment), $330 is what I give my parents every month. Total: $930. Considering my salary is about $800 I’m pretty much out of money this month. Although thanks to some savings I made I have enough to buy some food and pay my bills. But any regrets I could have about this decision just vanished when I sat on the bicycle and rode.



It turned out, that I need a full featured website much less than a simple blog. I don’t want to have a blog on Tumblr, but I do like their implementation of it, so I went with Chyrp, which is pretty close. But then Chyrp died, so I moved to Hugo. The blog is NSFW, as I might occasionally post some pr0n and other disturbing stuff.
