Sorry, this beginning part is for those that can read portuguese. Como eu disse no último post, no último final-de-semana fui visitar alguns amigos em Curitiba. Fiquei na casa do Eduardo (aka boto) e da Danielle ([dani]), que tem lindos olhos verdes ;-) tão bonitos quanto a cidade. Curitiba parece uma mistura de cidade pequena do interior com a infra-estrutura de São Paulo, mas sem os exageros que esta possui. Em especial, fiquei encantado com a Praça do Japão: um lugar com árvores e flores, esculturas e até uma casa de 3 andares, tudo no estilo oriental do nome. Foram meus melhores dias em anos. Reproduzindo parte do cartão postal que a Danielle me deu pode ajudar você a entender o que eu quero dizer, ou não: hipercubo, animatrix, a mosca II, madrugadas, bosque, batom, praça do japão, cobertura dura, super mario (zerado 3 vezes), procurando nemo (peixes são amigos, não comida), 1ª gaveta (presente), cobertas, dm1tri na rua, gatorade, pizzas (!!!). Viu só? Foi massa :-) e quando eu tiver as fotos e os postais digitalizados, posto os links deles aqui.


A newer version of the Breeze theme was released for Mozilla 1.4.x. I need to remake my changes of it in the new version and release finally my personal modified version. Flyson have changed some minor things in Breeze 1.4, like menu lines etc... I prefer the old style, but with others colors. Check out his site.


Have you ever tested Simutrans? It's a great game for Linux and Windows which you control the transportation system of various citys, similar to SimCity. Unfortunately, the Linux version hasn't sound support by default. I didn't play too much yet, but it has some cool features, like a great variety of cars, trains etc, lots of terrains, winter and night modes. Ah, it supports 9 languages (besides others non-official like portuguese)! Take a look on this screenshot of the winter mode, the night mode and the normal game.


Keeping the hunting for a decent, simple and good CMS. I had some contact with XMLnuke when it was really new and hadn't any engine younder the ASP one. Now it supports PHP, C# and Java. Awesome! The software seems to be really nice and if I'm correct it uses a design theme that I've made for OSWD. Finally I can test it (using PHP engine, of course). The project is hosted by SourceForge, GPL and works only using XML/XSLT, nothing more. I think I'll make some more designs themes for they, it can't be hard :-) didn't I say the maintainers are brazilians?

Can you see CSS?

Yah, yah, it's just eye-candy... Advogato allows some tags and a great amount of style attributes, but I only knows that now :-P It's funny, but I need to take care with it, otherwise this page will turn into a trash can with just CSS and girlish stuff, because that I must begin to post something useful. If you can't see the radius in borders corners I think is better you get and use a good browser, Gecko-based in special. I went to Curitiba (Paraná, Brasil) last weekend, it was marvelous, really. Sooner I'll post something about this fact. For now, I'm gonna put a order in my offline life. It's messed up.

New Mozilla Web Site

Eww, my eyes! They're burning! What the hell happened to Mozilla.org web site? XP screenshots as if Mozilla would be a product? Conspiracy theories are welcome :-) for this night, reading again The Book of Mozilla :-)

Playing With Mozilla Ports

I've downloaded Jazilla (port of Mozilla running Java). I thought it's was a little bit more usable... but it's completely useless :-/ at least the package that I've got (jazilla-m2-bin, from 20030712). For example, when you clik on Back button a magical and exciting dialog appears telling to use my brain for now. Ha!

Oh, and the only action that I noticed work is the Quit command of File menu. Great! I think I'm gonna test BeZilla... wish me luck pal.

Mozilla Mania Everywhere

After almost three months trying to translate a HowTo into portuguese... it's done! I'm too lazy and it probably needs some revision. The HowTo called "Creating a Skin for Mozilla" is really awesome, great to personalize this software and learn a little bit how Mozilla works. Also, I made a second version of Mozilla Breeze Theme, it originally shows some blue hovers and white menus then I modified it to full grayscale. Ah, and I have the Breeze's author autorization to do that. Want to download it? Read the following...

Like I said the translation is in portuguese, unfortunately. People can read it only when I'm online direct from my Apache (ouch!). I promise that I'll put it in some free host or something... soon. For now, I suggest the XUL Planet web site, where you can find a very good stuff about Mozilla and web standards , and the original HowTo about skinning Mozilla. Have fun!

First Post of Mine

Fine, so finally I've created an Advogato account. Now I'm fully 1337 such as everybody. First of all, I shall let you know that I do not speak english at all, then some posts here will be wrote in brazilian portuguese. It's not a problem at all, but if you see some typo, please tell me in the same time :-) By the way, I'm a helper in OSWD, a Mozilla and W3C evangelist as well a webdesign fan. That's all for now, I just hope don't forget to post something geek here. Many people simply ignore the existence of their accounts 8-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
