Moved from tables to divs!

February 23rd, 2007 by Quatrux

Well, at last, I moved from table designs to divs, I sticked with tables, due to I was a guy who used to use them for old browser support, but as less and less people browse with IBrowse and AWeb, I am really working further and using CSS for designs now as all “normal” webdesigners.. But I found one thing why tables are better than divs, you don’t have such control over tables, but you can do anything with them and it is much easier to have a nowrap design with 3 columns than with css, with css it is impossible, you have a choice of fixed width or a fluid design, or elastic, but it doesn’t work as with tables.. So, when your text is longer and you don’t want to break the line, you have to live with it that the text will get over the sidebar or whatever and will look horrible.. so you don’t need to have such words and need to use the right way with font sizes and etc. ;) But using CSS divs you save space, pages load faster and it is easier to do PHP with them, especially in loops, but also with template engines, it is useless.. as someone said to me – I have to remember, that tables isn’t CSS, furthermore, I know even more hate the fucking IE! :P

Today I was skiing

February 19th, 2007 by Quatrux

Today I was skiing, I didn’t ski for almost 4 years.. and I really enjoy myself, even though not to much, because to ski with your friends on some mountains with some beer is much more exiting than on a lecture where you have to do it even though you don’t want to.. I didn’t ski on mountains, but just in a quite straight place, so got a bit tired and was sweating a lot.. but it was still “fun” ;)

My Windows XP Screenshot ;)

February 17th, 2007 by Quatrux

Well, I am waiting for Today evening and don’t have an idea what to do, so I thought to post a screenshot of my Desktop, as I am currently booted to Windows, I will only make Windows XP screenshot :) Today: 2007 Feb 17, Saturday!

Windows XP Screenshot

As you can see, I am using Winamp with the Abuse skin, which I find quite nice, due to the modern skins is a little bit slow on my system, I think because of the Graphics Card I have, also my video player is VLC media player and etc. I am to tired to write this bullshit ;)

My Amiga 1200 classic board Photos ;)

February 17th, 2007 by Quatrux

I thought to post some of my made photos of my Amiga 1200, the best Amiga ever created in my opinion and that was in the year 1992, which was capable of displaying 16,7 million of colours, because of the AGA chipset. It still works in the year 2007 and is expanded to be more powerful, but I never made a superb Amiga out from it, I left it to be a real classic Amiga board, with the AGA chipset, Motorola 68030 + FPU running over 50 MHz and 32 MB of SIMM RAM.. Always was using the 50Hz PAL mode monitor, due to on it Amiga games are playable and you really feel much better playing games on such a monitor, even though near it I had a VGA monitor for my AmigaOS3.9, Workbench.. a really well made OS, but Today, in the Year 2007 all I can say that I am not such an Amigan as I used to be, Amiga doesn’t fully suit me and to upgrade it, costs a lot of money, which I as a student don’t have.. and when ANN.lu closed, I thought that Amiga is really dead, even though I have an Efika board and still am waiting for MorphOS to work on Efika.. I never used a PPC board on my A1200, never used a Voodoo graphics card and never used any sound card, I enjoyed myself with the Paula Audio chipset, even though to listen to mp3 wasn’t possible – well it was, but low quality, I was converting everything to ADP4 and AIFF.. As you can see I had a 4,2 GB Hard drive and a lot of CDs.. Also, my Amiga was connected to the Internet through a x86 PC Linux machine with Privoxy and Firewall since the year 1998-2000 and I was able to fully use it chatting on IRC, Jabber, using the best Email client ever YAM, browsing the World wide web with IBrowse and Aweb, connecting to FTP with ATC (Ami Trade Center) and everything else.. I started to do programming with C on Amiga, I started to learn PHP+MySQL and HTML on my Amiga, it was my first computer to be used so much… After it I moved to Linux and after Linux for my studies I also use Windows, even though I can do everything in Linux.. Anyway, enjoy my Amiga photos. ;)

my Amiga 500+ Photos ;)

February 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

Here, you can find some of my Amiga 500+ photos, I thought to put them online, due to I don’t know where to put them until the Q-Zone website doesn’t work, so this Blog is just perfect.. The Amiga itself seems to be quite dirty, but what do you want, it was developed in the year ~1992 and it went through a fire in a house and still works, it was my first Amiga computer, even though it is a “better” version of the Amiga500 which was developed much earlier, usually it is called Amiga500+ or Amiga500plus, or just plain old way A500+, A500plus and etc. Call whatever you want.. It has a Motorola 68000 CPU/Microprocessor running at 7.09 MHz (PAL) / 7.16 MHz (NTSC), like its predecessor, 1 MB of RAM, but I have an Expansion Card and had total of 4 MB of RAM on the machine, also the Expansion Card could be used to have a SCSI Hard Drive, but it never worked for me, but I had two disk drives, with small floppies and big black floppies. As this upgrade had Kickstart 2.04 (v37.175) I was able to use Workbench 37.67 (release 2.04) without any problems and really had several disks of perfect Workbench+DOpus appliactions all using the XPK and PPLoad Sequence, oh those were the DAYS! I played a lot of games, good games, because it has an ECS graphics chipset, capable of showing 4096 colours.. I also used it to program in Basic, used the Blitz Basic! Enjoy!

Autocad 2006

February 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

I had my first lectures on Autocad, thought that using Autocad sucks, but with time and a little experience I really found Autocad a nice program and now I have some understanding about drawing/draughtsmanship which will be useful for me as I am studying in a Technical University, even though it is Informatics/Information Technologies! I always liked 2D, but still with time will need to draw different things with 3D environment, even though I am not going to become somekind of a pro, but to know the basic stuff is very good. ;)

Angry Nintendo Nerd

February 16th, 2007 by Quatrux

I saw this guy on his site, my friend gave me a link and I am really happy that on my free time I watched his videos, due to I am also a retro gamer and like to play with some emulators and even on my real still working Amiga1200! This guy was very good, I laughed a lot, especially at the beginning, due to I was watching his videos from his first one, to the last one.. His comments were good about those games and his look/appearance and speech also was funny, especially the beer thing ;D All I can say, is that only two games he commented wasn’t as bad as he told, to much swearing on them, I used to play Top Gun and I really like it, especially the multiplayer mode and all I can say that it was easy for me to land on the ship and finish those missions! Furthermore, Double Dragon III, I finished that game on NES with my friend in multiplayer mode, it was hard, but it was a good game, he also was swearing to much on it, it didn’t deserve so much comments. But Anyway, still it was COOL! ;)

You can find the videos and watch yourself here, due to the Angry Nerd is going to get you to :D

Well as most of whom is using the default theme of wordpress I thought to take my time and search for a wordpress theme/skin/layout, but most of them sucks and aren’t my type, but found this one, into which you’re currently looking at, but I modified it quite a lot to look better for me and maybe others, wanted to change the logo/banner/top but with time changing everything I started to like it.. So enjoy the new Theme I am using for my Blog. ;)
