It Crowd is back with season 3

November 23, 2008 – 22:16 by Adnan Hodzic


It Crowd is back! More then a year ago Season 2 was complete, and after so much discussion, rumors and so on ... Season 3 is finally here and it's such a great come back :D I don't want to ruin anything for you, but I really didn't think that "Douglas" was going to "overtake" the thrown or will even come close to his father Denholm, but if anything he'll prove you wrong, and you'll see how Moss takes care of bullies :) But all in all Roy is still my all favorite 8-) I can't wait to see the next episode (next friday), bad thing is that this season will only have 6 episodes (as far as I know), but as long as we don't have to wait a whole year for a new season to air I'm good with that. In the meantime until you don't get your hands on It Crowd fix ...

Pimp my Gmail

November 20, 2008 – 10:46 by Adnan Hodzic


Last night I logged into my Gmail account and I see that there is this new feature, themes. Oh well, I say finally it's time for such a move from Google, since I noticed that some changes have been made on their CSS. For some time right now I have noticed that every single input box in gmail is incredibly ... well square. Too round and square. Now when it comes to themes in Gmail, if you ask me it was really about the time. There were few Firefox addons and they were ok and all, but lets face it, you change your computer and there goes your Gmail look. And then as I said it, last night I log into my Gmail account and there's a notification about themes. I'll present the some screenshots, for all the other stuff that I don't say here you can read the official Gmail blog ...

Talent is worth 10000 hours?

November 18, 2008 – 20:17 by Adnan Hodzic


Other day I came across this very ... inspirational story if nothing. If you asked me, I'd say there's really no such thing as talent, if you say there is, then it's highly discussable. I believe in work, not talent, you can have affinities for certain things, but please don't categorize them in same category as "talent". Once I got a question from a student "How come you know so much?" I laughed and told him "Well, I don't sleep much" Without further ado I present you: Malcolm Gladwell with "Gift or hard work"? The University of Michigan opened its new computer centre in 1971, in a low-slung building on Beal Avenue in Ann Arbor. The university's enormous mainframe computers stood in the middle of a vast, white-tiled room, looking, as one faculty member remembers, "like one of the last scenes in 2001: A Space Odyssey". Off to the side were dozens of key-punch machines - ...

FoolControl v1.5 beta & IcePress 1.0 beta

November 18, 2008 – 19:59 by Adnan Hodzic


Some of you might have noticed some changes on the site itself, maybe that it carries label "FoolControl v1.5.beta" or something like that. I'm planning on making some pretty big changes around here, devel list is long so ... hang in there. Same goes with WordPress that was behind all of this. Even before, Wordpress I was using was highly modified, and then I got an idea to actually fork it. Since it was that or leaving WordPress for good and doing my own thing from the scratch. Also when it comes to system itself, I want to make "labs" where I want to put few of my ideas, instead of explaining them right now, it's all going to come along with the "territory" that is future posts and etc ... Also from now on you'll be able to read content from couple of other authors besides me. Who what? I guess you'll ...

Compiz, Lenny, x300, i965, exa, xaa, xv …

November 1, 2008 – 15:32 by Adnan Hodzic


I'm spending this lovely Saturday morning to go through some bugs in Debian. Actually I set my eye on one special bug, Lenny RC bug which in few days will be 1 year old, and then this fact and figure as one ripped the stitches of my mouth, and thus I started writing this post ... I want to talk few things over in general Linux development and possibly give definition to this highly cryptic title. EXA vs XAA on i965 But before that let me tell you a little story that should've been told long time ago.  When I got my x300, I was "thrown" on a lot of new stuff. One of the most interesting things is that i965 was blacklisted in Compiz (and as I see it now, it still is).  So as I configured everything back in the day, last step was to configure Compiz. I was very ...
