First of all, thank you for all your comments/feedback on previous Start! entries.
What kept me busy for last ~25hrs (literally) was making Start! to be properly rendered in all of the browsers and resolutions except IE of course. In the end, I ended up writing the whole thing from scratch, 709 lines which also passed W3 Validator, pretty sweet :)

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 post. Too say the least, there are some really interesting themes. The one I finally picked is most interesting me for several reasons.
I’m using theme named “Tree”, it’s incredibly slick, second depending on weather conditions theme will change. So last night when I first tried it, it was raining so the whole theme got “wet” and there were drops all over the place. Tree on the bottom was swinging by the wind and stuff like that.There are also few themes that are “dependent” on weather conditions. Which is definitely *thumbs up

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

It’s been almost 2 months since my last post here on foolcontrol.
After I got enough of emails of you guys asking me: “Was that it for foolcontrol?” “Is foolcontrol dead?” “Are you dead?” “Why haven’t you been writing anything?” … I thought least I can do is post anything. Problem is that I was incredibly busy, so it all just kinda hit me hard, working on a lot of projects (simultaneously of course), then this and that … it was just too much to handle. At least in a sense to write a blog post, after work once I’m home, instead of relaxing, enjoying myslef, I’d just switch to work on my other project(s).
Don’t get me wrong, I love working, I’m really enjoying it, and this blog or whatever you want to call it, I’m doing all of this from pure enjoyment, not cuz I’m forced to do so or anything like that. And thank all to the guys who were actually “worried” about what’s happening both to me and foolcontrol. Since a lot has happened in a period since my last post, this will pretty much what “ordinary” people write on their blogs, and that is, boring stuff from their life :)
What was I doing that kept me so busy?
Beginning of summer, for most people synonym for heat, beaches, hot naked objects and beer. So just as summer started I got hired to develop School Information System for AUBIH. Briefly … Debian, Postgresql, Apache, PHP and tons of caffeine. Whole system took me around 3months to develop, and was one of the projects that kept me most occupied this whole summer.
