Other day I read “Refreshing The Ubuntu Brand“, upcoming visual style changes for Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and my only comment to this whole story was “Don’t tell me you’re moving window control elements to the left side of window in Lucid …” :sidefrown:
Either way if this is the “revolutionary” change for Ubuntu, then I have a visual style suggestion for Squeeze as well.
Since Gnome is default desktop environment in Debian and as it looks like right now 2.30 will be what’s going to be included into Squeeze; nothing much, or nothing really will visually change in Gnome by then. So … how about this :lamp:
For some time now I’ve been troubled by some things in Gnome, and what’s bothering me the most is “System” menu. Why? Well because the list of utilities listed both under “Administration” and “Preferences” is so long that it’s almost useless. So without losing your precious seconds of your life and losing fair amount of nerves … well this is what’s required to find what you were initially looking for. Interesting enough is the fact (please do stress) that Gnome consists of a fine thing called “gnome-control-center” which is not included in any of Gnome menus. :idk:

Ok, without really any reason I “closed” the forum for the first time, and now I’m “opening” it for the second time. Actually to be completely honest I closed it for the first time because there wasn’t much of a talk in there. In the meantime, a port of the forum is being used by AUBIH IT Club members, part o the forum you’re not aware unless you’re in the club :)
Once you also gave your opinion that FC does have a forum, even though poll wasn’t there long enough. Besides this poll I really don’t know if the forum is needed, because not really a lot of discussion is going on in the comments or anything, but … suit yourselves :)
Nevertheless, forum is up again, and open for discussion for everyone and no one really. If you have any questions regarding anything, please do ask. I promise I won’t close it this time, no matter if it’s visited or not and … such :)
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 find out soon enough, one of them is even Ph.D if that makes you feel different about this very idea ;)
I call this fork of mine “IcePress”, which I had to describe in one sentence … well
more “FoolControl v1.5 beta & IcePress 1.0 beta”
You wanted you, you got it :)
After I really let the users/readers/visitors that is you decide if you want forum or not, after posting a poll, you voted 64% yes.
To be honest with you, I wanted forum too, I’m actually lacking places I can have any sort of “intellectual” dicussion/talk. Or any other dicussion in global. This poll has been posted here for almost a month, since I saw you’ll (we’ll) most prolly end up having a forum I started working on it.
This is not my first or second, but one of in many forum implentations, and I’m so happy with the results that I think it’s one of the best ones so far. I really put a lot of “love” into it. And again led by “simplicy is divine” this is what I came up with it. Based on SMF it’s most prolly one of the safest and fastest forums out there. I editted … a lot, for the looks I also used PixelSlot‘s blackedr theme, which I also editted to my needs.
In the end I ended up with such a great product, that I won’t even have to “push” it to trough various “betas” and such. Also, this forum works fully on your phone through regular GPRS.
There, now all I can wish for is to gather nice community and make something out of it. Enjoy, as as I enjoyed making it ;)
Here’s a quick update just so you think I’m not doing anything.
A week ago I got my Sony Ericsson W960i it’s a complete beast so I’m still trying to tame it :) I’ll post a video of it and it’s capabilites and features in shortest period. Second hosting has been upgraded, so lots of space, and from now on emails you get here, will be 1gb.
Besides that all, I’m working on putting up the forum, because as I see it, you wanted forum so you’ll get it :)
There, little something, so you know what’s/something’s happening ;)
