old photo, new post processing

Too much time has passed since my last published post -though my drafts keep piling. Today I want to share with you a photograph I took a long time ago, during a trip to Heraklion, Crete. I knew from the moment my finger started moving toward the shutter button that I would love this shot. For some reason though I never post processed it till yesterday. I usually do not post process my photos but this one was shot at harsh conditions and needed some “repairs”.  In the end my “repairs” were more creative than what I originally planned but I am satisfied with the result. Sad...

Wallpaper: KDE – permanent type

This is the fourth and last wallpaper of the KDE wallpapers week. It is the less “clean” image in this series. I think that it doesn’t match up well with widgets but if you have a virtual desktop clean of plasmoids you will love it. It is so good it may even get you a girlfriend! :p for 4:3 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1600x1200 for 5:4 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1280x1024 for 16:10 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1280x800 KDE - permanent type - 1680x1050 KDE - permanent type - 1920x1200 for 16:9 monitors KDE - permanent type - 1920x1080 KDE – permanent type...

Wallpaper: powered by KDE

Yesterday I decided to play a bit with textures and the result was a KDE wallpaper! I love it and I hope you will like it too! I will post a plain version without the colored straws soon. For the photography savvy this photo was captured with my Canon EOS 500D and the EF 50mm f/1.8 (no mkII version here). You can download it below at various resolutions. Each ratio comes from a different crop area of the original, so download the appropriate ratio for your monitor  since you can’t get for example the 16:10 image if you crop the large 4:3 image. If you like it , you can give it a vote over kde-look. ...

New theme, new 404 page, new server and zero ads!

New theme, new 404 page, new server and zero ads!

Quite some changes happened at the website in the last few hours and I want to write some lines about it.   new theme As you can see I installed a new theme. I have fallen in love with it from the first moment I saw it. It is simple and elegant, perfect for a personal site. It may be a bit disorienting  that the first post you see on the home page isn’t the most recent post in general but the most recent post in the featured articles category, but I prefer it that way. This change wasn’t easy though. I had to make the theme xLanguage (multilingual) compatible, to fix an issue with international characters, to add some rss icons (borrowed from Atahualpa)...

Wallpaper: Water Drops

Some days ago I tried to do some water drop shots because they are easy to do, fun and the results, although not original, are most of the time satisfying. This is one of the better shots and since I was asked for it this is a wallpaper version. It is fairly large, 1920×1200 pixels, so you can scale it down and/or crop it to fit to your monitor (this happens automatically from your OS, no need for special graphics software). Click to view, right click -> open link to see it at full size, right click -> save link as to save it on your computer. ...

wordpress, atahualpa, xLanguage and widget titles translation

wordpress, atahualpa, xLanguage and widget titles translation

My site is implemented in wordpress. I use the very nice atahualpa theme from bytesforall and a special plugin for multilingual websites, xLanguage from Sam Wong. Multilingual support is very important for many people and I hope wordpress will support directly multilingual sites in the future. Currently xLanguage is the best approach in my opinion and I have tried most -if not all- multilingual wordpress plugins. Of course nothing is perfect and the atahualpa and xLanguage combination do not escape from this rule. There are some small problems when you use them together, some titles (widget titles for example) do not get translated. The fix is considered simple but if...
