My very first own home.

As many of you will know if you check this blog often, in August I move from Madrid to Almerķa looking for a new job and an opportunity to buy a house as here they are cheaper. After four years with my girlfriend living in Madrid in rented accommodation, we finally are proprietors of our home. We have been struggling with the bank to give us a good mortgage and yesterday they told me we will have the money for the house.

My new house, I really like how it sounds ;), is located in Aguadulce. It's a small maritime village near Almerķa and Roquetas de Mar with no more than 1,500 people. It's very quiet but has a lot of night life.

Let me know if you come to this area of Spain for holidays.

TOCA ME website, Online magazine about Art & Design

I found this site thanks to a workmate. It's really impressive the animation on the background, not because of the animation movement but the whole effect with the photo it's, in some ways, disgusting ;)

Check it out.

Here comes the Eolator (thanks Q)

Mario Klingemann has come out with a very nice solution to the Eolas Patent problem.
He called it Eolator and it's a 53 bytes javascript file. All you have to do to use it is write the page you want to fix and it will output your fixed html.

I know that lot of developers are squeezing their heads to come with a solution but I ask one question? Isn't it the perfect moment to switch to Firebird, Mozilla or Opera?
We have to concienciate people about it. All we have to do is some great marketing stuff, don't you think so?

How to write bad documentation that looks good.

Do you ever have to write some dcumentation for a app that you don't know where to start or don't know who it works?

Here is the solution and it will help you to impress your management, and facilitate your remaining time in that job. It will not substantially help your replacement(s) and does not betray obvious signs of sabotage.

MyIE2 0.8 build 2055 Released!

This version of MyIE2 has important bug fixes and you should update now. As well as bug fixes the browser kernel was re-written to improve the speed.

MYIE2 is a IE based browser that can open multiple pages in one window by using the integrated tabbed interface and uses very few of your system's resources. In addition, to make your surfing experience more enjoyable and faster it offers a lot of features like:
  • Download Control - You can easily set MYIE2 to not load a specific file category like images, sounds, scripts or flash movies to speed up your surfing.

  • Privacy protection - With a click you can clear your browsing information, such as cookies, history etc or you can also set MYIE2 to clear them for you when you exit.

  • Mouse Gestures - Lets you quickly send commands to MYIE2 like refreshing the page and going back or forward using your right mouse button . In the latest version you can also customize the gestures.

  • AD Hunter - Annoying ADs in pages and pop-ups can be blocked by MYIE2. Each time a pop-up is blocked a sound can be played and a warning shown. Also all the pop-ups can be reopened by viewing the blocked addresses window or by clicking the icon on the status-bar. Annoyed of banners and ads in pages? Then just right-click it, add it to the AD hunter filter and MYIE2 will never load it again.

  • Site Favicons - Most of the web sites today have their own icon. MyIE2 can display this icon in the tabs, in the address bar and in the favorites menu.

  • External Utility Bar - You can add links to other programs to the utilities bar and launching them is just one click away. You could even set them to start and close with MYIE2 automatically.

  • Skins Support - Using different skins you can change the look of MYIE2“s icons, menus and backgrounds.

  • Plug-ins Support - Expand the functions of MYIE2 with tool-bar and sidebar plug-ins. IE plug-ins (tool-bars) are also supported.

  • Quick Search - Set you default search engine and just type the keyword in the address bar to do your web search. An advanced search can also be done in the sidebar.

  • Super Drag&Drop - You can highlight text in a page, drag&drop it and a web search will be done. Drag&drop a link and it will open in a new tab, same with a image.

  • Custom Start-up - When you start, MYIE2 can open your last visited pages, startup favorites or a group of other pages.

  • Favorites Bar - You can have your favorites open with just a click.

  • Auto-hide panels - Save space the smart way. The tool-bars and the sidebar can both auto-hide and float again when you point at them.

  • Pages Groups - You can set a number of pages under one group so you can open them quickly with just a click or when you start MYIE2.

  • URL Alias - It may be hard to remember a long url. With MYIE2 you can set a small "name" for any url. For example, you can set "myie2" for http://www.myie2.com/ and then all you have to do is to type "myie2" in the address bar and MYIE2 will bring you to the website.

  • Status Bar Extras - MYIE2 can display your IP address, your System's resources, your network speed and the number of blocked pop-ups in the status bar. Other 5 quick functions are also accessible from the status-bar.

There are tons of other features that can“t be listed here, the best way to find them is to keep using MYIE2.
