Creative Commons

Ha! I was so fucking right! About eight months ago I told to all my friends how fantastic the Creative Commons project is and the probability of its populatity growing a lot. So we have right now a nice CC-GPL licence thanks a brazilian initiative. Also, check out this amazing commercial, winner of the CC's Moving Image Contest: [Creativity Always] Building on the Past (.mov, 8mb). To see the others featured movies, go to the contest page. So, did you notice that when I have no news to write about, I always put a lotta links here?

Mozilla Brasil

Pretty obvious, uh? [...] Actually I'm helping out the Mozilla Brasil team to organize the project and you can browse my personal directory through the home page link in top. In the last weeks I've spent some time playing with POT files (type man gettext inside your terminal emulator baby) because I knew that anyone can convert Mozilla's DTD files to the POT format so you can easily translate the T-rex :) while testing it with the Translate kit, the descendant of mozpotools, originally created by a couple of guys from a south african translation group I wanted to write a localized manual of Translate (this version in english). I strongly recomend you to try it! Lets retire the Mozilla Translator ;)


Yes, scalable vector graphics rules. I made some convertions from bitmap images to the SVG format and the theme is basically about... hmm, Mozilla! My Mozilla's SVG images.

Femtologger & Designing

Femtologger is almost finished, yay! I just need to clean up the code and make finally the CLI using Dialog. Now it exports RSS feeds, XBEL bookmarks, have a nice text version of the page for accessibility purposes and a lot of CSS themes for colorblind folks. The page built by Femtologger now is compliant with Bobby/US 508 guideline but hmm 80% against W3C WAI. I used to try to validate it against the W4 Dogma (W4D) group, but it's a little hard to do so, because there isn't a validator for that. Anyway, I think it's fine unless for the part about font sizes... I really like to use px instead of % or even pt :P ...and yes, Femtologger is based on Bowie Poag's MicroBlogger, specifically on 1.9 release and it is a very simple, easy-to-use and standards compliant web log system (or just blogger) that runs with no need of any kind of dependencies; no CGI, no PHP, no SQL. Femto is 100% made using Bash script and a menu-driven system. Another good reason to use Femto is because it builds a valid XHTML 1.1 page plus valid CSS 2.1 to style the elements. Also, you can use to-be-converted tags for bold, italic, blockquote, links etc and boy, it's so awesome to hear the Festival system speeching my Femtologger page!

Well, it is time for some links and URL :D like my study about Tantek's hive menu, some others works about it and Mozilla's proprietary CSS properties. And if I remember something more else I'll post here soon, I promise.
