Classifieds in Austria

updated by rck, 2005-07-05
Classifieds in Austria

There's a new classifieds platform here in Austria. The nice thing about Tom Clever is, that it is for free. There are no fees whatsoever involved. One can get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of categories, but the structure makes sense.

The eight categories (communities, hobbies, vehicles, services, contact, real estates, courses and goods of all kind) should be able to hold everything someone would like to sell or buy.

Defacing Phishing sites

updated by rck, 2006-04-22
Defacing Phishing sites

You know about defacing. That's the thing that happens to unsecure web sites. Some people hack them and put their own content up. phpBB is a well known target of defacing, so is phpNuke.

And then there's phishing. Basically setting up fake sites that look like commercial banks or similar institutions. That are set up so you'd have to enter sensitive information which would be collected.

Google Earth

Google Earth

Google Maps is a huge success. And a nice example for another successful Google application. Too bad that there are only maps about US and UK.

Google Earth is the next cartography attempt of Google. And it's even more successful. It is apparently so successfull that Google even had to temporarily disable the download of it. Download? Yes, it's a windows program, based on Direct X.

Dragging users into groups

updated by rck, 2005-06-30
Dragging users into groups

Administrating users in a content management system sure can be boring. Take phpWebSite. You click on a user. You click on add to group. You scroll down, look for the next user. Oops, wrong one. Let's click on the previous one again and move it back. Aem, drop it back.

Draging and Dropping might be just the spice that's missing here and with Rico it might even be easy to implement. I made a tiny prototype.

Cropping Images

Cropping Images

One reason, why Typo3 is as successful: It is integrated. It has a workflow, you don't have to leave your web browser while creating your content.

Most CMSes have some sort of image upload capability. But, well, that's about it. You can't just take the picture of your digi cam, which might be more than thousand pixels wide and tall and put it up your web site. No, you need to resize it first. And crop it.

A hint of chess

A hint of chess

Granted, Ajax is right now the shooting star amongst JavaScript technologies. And it is cool, think about the improved user experience through better responsiveness. But there are other interesting JavaScipt projects too, maybe a bit hidden behind all that glamour that is Ajax.

A very cool library I discovered recently is Walter Zorn's DHTML Library, enabling programmers to support Drag N Drop amongst other things. Crossbrowser compatible.

Pagerank 5

Pagerank 5

Today it occured to me, that my Firefox PR Extension showed PR 5 instead of the PR 4. Just for curiosities sake I did a quick Search for “Pagerank 5” on Google and guess what? It came up with more than 31.000 links!

People are insane. Why would they write about Pagerank 5? Joen Asmussen for example did a note on his blog about it, like this one.

Tales from Berlin

updated by rck, 2008-04-29
Tales from Berlin

I visited Berlin in February 2005. Why? Because I earned my Bachelor's and my father gave me a ticket as a gift. This trip gave me a reason for finally buying my digital camera. I brought 1.5 GB of photos (663) back, which is why it took me so long to put them online.

But as all festivities must come to an end it was really about time to change that.

Adobe to buy Macromedia

updated by rck, 2005-04-18
Adobe to buy Macromedia

Adobe and Macromedia. For years, they've been fighting for users of the same market. Both into creative products, both having similar products. Macromedia Dreamweaver dominated Adobe Pagemill (and later Adobe GoLive, which Adobe acquired in 1999). Adobe Illustrator dominated Macromedia Freehand. And Adobe never got LiveMotion -- its Macromedia Flash rival -- really running.

Axe Snake Peel got a new skin

Axe Snake Peel got a new skin

In case you shouldn't know: Axe Snake Peel is a shower gel that has been introduced somewhere by the end of 2004, if I recall correctly. It's one of these every day products you use and use and forget about it. If you run out of it you simply go to the super market and buy a new one.

A few days ago, the super market had a surprise for me: Axe Snake Peel got a new skin!

Austrian Toilet Art

Austrian Toilet Art

It is very impressive how certain Austrian groups know where they belong to. During our first “Photo club” photo-shooting today, klwe and I found a toilet on the Leopoldsberg.

I think, that the caption “NS Art” absolutely fits on toilets. Congratulations to the artists for that!

Fighting fire with fire

Fighting fire with fire

Some things are so odd, they really make you wonder. Take for example the Austrian freedom party. Basically like the Republicans but (luckily) a minority in Austria.

As a minority, they have to shock people. At least that's what they think. And point with the finger on others.

Bounty 1.5 inch shorter

Bounty 1.5 inch shorter

Great, the new Bounty rolls have 50 percent more sheets! Yeah, that's written on the package in bold letters. But wait. Isn't it quite a bit shorter, too?

Luckily I still had an old roll of Bounty at home and could compare them.

Comparing TYPO3 with phpWebSite

updated by rck, 2006-03-25
Comparing TYPO3 with phpWebSite

I've been using phpWebSite for about a year now and think that it can be adapted to most content management needs. TYPO3 is leading the open source CMS market right now and has very powerful features no other CMS can offer.

Still, I think phpWebSite is the better choice most of the times. I will show you why.

phpWebSite hacks

There's that great listing of 3rd-party modules at the phpWebsite Mainsite. What I haven't found until now is a list of all 3rd-party hacks.

I know, that it is quite big a task to list them all, but I'll do a start. Please add other ones you know about as a comment so we can have a full listing eventually!

I'm going to Berlin

Tomorrow morning (2004-02-18) I'll start the 10 hour train ride to Berlin. I'm going there for a weekend and will come back on Monday morning. My father gave me the tickets as a present, because I finished my first academic degree.

Yes, I'm Bachelor. Since November 2004! No, I don't have the certificate yet. I'm looking very forward to Berlin.

Tooth-brushing, a victimless crime?

updated by rck, 2005-02-16
Tooth-brushing, a victimless crime?

Some have attempted to paint tooth-brushing as a victimless crime, arguing that “if you brush your teeth regularly, you improve your dental hygiene, and we are all better off.” This is hardly the case.

“Reducing tooth-brushing offers direct benefits. The equation is a basic one: the lower the rate of tooth-brushing, the larger the dental prosthetic, dental filling, and dental surgical equipment sectors, and the greater the benefits.”

Filtering Categories in Calendar

updated by rck, 2006-04-23
Filtering Categories in Calendar

Tommy, aka trf from the phpWebSite forums had an idea. What, if it would be possible to filter your sites' calendar by its category? Like: You select the “Party” category and would only see all parties in your Calendar

Well, I've seen that idea, talked to Tommy and we implemented it. The whole project didn't even take a week and I got a very generous amount of money on my paypal account.

v7 (2005-03-10) instead of simply setting all checkboxes in the category selector to false when the Master category is selected, I commented the whole check out. This wasn't exactly a good idea as it generated an "invalid argument" warning during the foreach loop in CatSel.php. Fixed in this version

Clock 0.3 for phpWebSite

Clock 0.3 for phpWebSite

Have a lot of visitors from different timezones? Always to late because you're playing around with your homepage? Bored to death and want something that changes after a while on your screen?

Or do you simply want to create your very own phpWebSite module? If you answered yes to any of those questions clock is for you.

0.3 now contains the danish language file, translated by Lasse Skov from LiquidArt. Thank you!

MosMensk from LiquidArt made his first phpWebSite theme available. It is based around the topic “contemporary health”, very clean and nice to look at.

Oh, and it is the first 3rd party thing hosted on kiesler.at!
