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.

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 ;)
