raph: about File format, API, or protocol?

You should add - or Environment, or command line switches, or dialog boxes, or X resourses, or "configure" parameters before compilation, or #defines........

I thinks there is need in common configuration tool :) What do you think about posting article on "config" subject?

Languages
I still want to write article about sculptor-language. That means it must be flexible as clay during software development, but hard as burn clay for everyday usage. May be it shoul be some script, which could be made "solid". Something like using "strict" for perl, but advanced. With lot's of value checking and data-content limitations (such as for correctnes of input fields).

SimplePHPdb - new project

There is one php script wich do serialization/unserialization. It has little functionality, but very flexible. I have create it as a tool to help me with database design. It allows easy modifications to data structures.

Use it if you like. I think this is final version.
If you have comments - please mail me, I will not read them in recentlog :(

Just submited CSS patch as an answer to article.
Why you need this race for standarts?! If you want to save bandwidth then best solution is to handle
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, compress;q=0.9.
I whould never understand that :) This standart is recommended only.... Why!?.......

OSS in Kiev...If you know ukrainian/russian take a look at:
www.linux.kiev.ua and
www.linux.org.ua

Better say "Knowlege must be free" instead of information or I whould as you to put on web all your private life description :))))

Why it is so easy to work on unix? All becouse you never solve full task. If you do not think so - just write a script, which converts all files in directory from lowercase to uppercase. And after that check if it works with names, containing " ", "\n", "'", '"' :)

Yes!!! I recolled my Advogato password! :)
/me happy.
all before I used coockies for a long time :(

raph: You talking about SPAM. Are you admin of your box? Have you think about creating special mailbox for every person you know well? :)
id whould be like raph2969002@host - so you will be certain it is free of spam. So you will never loose essential mails.
Then all you need is just to have a way how to give your friends these emails.

The problem with Spam - you need to have public e-mails :(
but if you whould have hundreds of them - one for every mail list etc. It will ease your life ;)

FreeSoftware in Ukraine - We are trying to organize group of people interested in FS development in UA (see http://www.linux.kiev.ua (mail list) and http://www.linux.org.ua).
Now many people wants free solution just not to pay for Windows.. Actually most of our Game/Internet clubs now based on Linux + Wine solution (on site is description - how to setup ip, but it is in russian).
Heh... it's strange that people do not like to select something...They need single solution. Linux is just a big box of choices :) So it is not sutable as a commercial solution for SO/home users...
Also - it is easier to make interface Language selection by choosing one of several CD-s with dist, then choosing it from list on screen:)
Same with Descktop/Server versions...

New article of Zubinsky about Programming architecture [lang=RU] at ITC

Thinking of database with permissions set per every field. It could be used as metadvogato....

PHP shows itself well with objects stored as PHP files. Still JS could ne best suited for this....

Ilan: check manuals/redmes - there is preference setting to change this :) //Ctrl->Alt
