Note to self: read the article Deep Thinking about Weblogs, by Andrew Grumet, pointed by André Restivo. It seems to be really interesting.

CSS Zen Garden

May 8th, 2003 § 2 comments § permalink

Simon Willison points a incredibly cool CSS site demonstrating the use of this technology to create beautiful and compelling sites. The site uses the same HTML document and applies five different CSS stylesheets to it that completely change the way the site is displayed.

I’d just make one suggestion to the site creator, tough. He could have named the stylesheets in the document to allow Mozilla users to change them with just one menu click. Anyway, the site is certainly worth a visit and some study.

Mandrake Linux 9.1

Yesterday I installed Mandrake Linux 9.1 in my home computer. Mandrake is the distribution I’m using since I decided to have a dual-boot system at home to experiment with Linux so that I could make it my primary platform in the future. The first version I used was 8.0, which didn’t remain installed for a long time in my computer as 8.1 was released not much later after I started using 8.0, with lots of new and interesting features. For some time I had Red Hat installed as a third system, due to its wide usage, but after some time I opted to have just one Linux system to avoid spending extra time managing two different distributions with all their idiosyncrasies. Mandrake has proved to be more than sufficient for all my needs, both as a developer and as a common user. » Read the rest of this entry «

I went to see X-Men 2 last Friday with my wife, my sister, and my brother. We managed to catch the second showing, after some complications kept us from seeing the opening session. Strange things always happen when I want to see this kind of high-profile movies in their opening day.

As almost everybody have seen it already, I won’t repeat needless details seen elsewhere. It’s enough to say that the movie truly rocks. Some scenes beat the crap out of The Matrix, like the opening scene with Nigthcrawler. :-O The part when Mystique manages to invade Stryker’s bunker was one of the best things I have ever seen in a movie. That girl is spectacular! :-)

Kudos to Ian McKellen and Hugh Jackman, who played Magneto and Wolverine, respectively. Quite cool acting, indeed.

Now, I will just wait for The Matrix Reloaded. đŸ˜‰

Where am I?
