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...

musearch: per ebuild USE flag descriptions on your terminal

There is some material I want to upload to the site eventually. I will begin with musearch, a bash script useful to Gentoo Linux users. musearch lets you search for an ebuild and then displays it’s USE flags along with their description. It can be considered as a CLI interface to Mike Valstar’s site gentoo-portage.com. musearch uses portage (emerge), esearch or eix to search for an ebuild by name or by name and description. Then, provided the results aren’t too many (we don’t want to cause unnecessary traffic to gentoo-portage.com), connects to Mike Valstar’s website and downloads the USE flag descriptions for each result, formats them in a...
