What’s New on Shlomi Fish’s Homepage
Here are the recent updates for Shlomi Fish’s Homepage. Most of the work this time was done on the look, feel, and infrastructure of the site, such as the navigation menus, but there is still some new (and hopefully interesting) content. So without further ado, here is what is new:
I made sure that the expansion state of the navigation menu is preserved between the pages. Moreover, the much maligned section navigation menus are now hidden by default, but can be enabled using the button and should remember their state between pages.
There is a new HTML Tutorial in Hebrew under work. Currently, there is only one section, and some aspects of it are lacking.
I added new quotes to the fortune cookies collection:
- Yaakov: I LOVE YOU ALL WITH A GREAT HUGE LOVE
- rindolf: Yaakov: HOW MUCH DOES YOUR GREAT HUGE LOVE COST?
- Yaakov: It's on offer half price today.
- rindolf: Yaakov: I WILL OFFER YOU 200,000 VIRTUAL DOLLARS FOR YOUR GREAT HUGE LOVE.
- Yaakov: The regular price is free of charge.
- rindolf: Yaakov: oh nice.
- * rindolf buys Yaakov's GREAT HUGE LOVE.
- rindolf: I LOVE YOU ALL WITH YAAKOV'S GREAT HUGE LOVE.
The third version of my essay “Open source, Free software, and Other Beasts” is now live. It was converted from DocBook 4 to DocBook 5 and greatly enhanced.
Also new is the countdown program which is similar to the UNIX sleep command, only displays the amount of time remaining.
There’s a new and open source solver for the so-called “Binary Puzzles”. It is still incomplete.
Can I SCO now?
Sue who you wanna sue,
it doesn't matter anyhoo,
it's time to litigate.
Can I SCO Now?
Say what you wanna say,
we don't care anyway,
we're going to inflate.
Can I, can I, SCO now….
I now mirror The Fountainhead’s parody “The Fountainhead Starring Skull Force”, whose original link went offline, but which I was able to find a mirror of. Enjoy.
There are some new additions to the original Aphorisms and Quotes page:
The English Wikipedia: now you don’t see it - now you do.
I restored the display of the images in my “There are Too Many Ways to Do it” lightning talk.
