Curitiba

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.

Breeze

A newer version of the Breeze theme was released for Mozilla 1.4.x. I need to remake my changes of it in the new version and release finally my personal modified version.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.

Simutrans

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.

XMLnuke

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?

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.
