My next impression by Linux

Few days ago I've been into some C coding and again got impressed by how greatly linux is organised! Dependencies are written the clear way. The "./configure" script is a standard. The "Makefile" is a standard. and so on... they aren't strictly linux-related but I mostly work in Linux environment... I actually refer to UNIX standards I guess. It is so simple to create and redistribute own application using standard utils, making it easily-installable! I love this!
Anyway,...

PHP - misleading thoughts

Posted 03-07-2010 at 10:29 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I've recently used to hear from many guys that PHP is bad and useless language. Well, generally the source of that point of thinking is a bad code written by newbies(or mature noobs).
Yes, I admit PHP has some basic functions missing, some features need to be improved, etc. It's far from ideal language. But it is very easy to learn.

I was going to work this night but I guess I failed at this. One thought about watching movies and it took all nite long... Oh man...
Well, I was watching "Nausicaš of the Valley of the Winds" (1984), I'd say it's one of my favourite movies. It's totally outstanding and amazing movie about Love as it is.
I respect people having that level of using imagination. Ones who create such masterpieces that show us Life as it is, meant to be understood by almost everyone. Right here,...

Debian Lenny + GUI = ?

Posted 02-24-2010 at 10:01 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])
Tags debian, gui, lfs

Yet another - to debian.
Few days ago I was trying to make a backup and write it on DVD. But failed to do so with:
1. nautilus (recently i used that, it was a simpliest way)
2. xfburn (i use xfce)
3. brasero.
All of them either hang or fall when I add too many files. Well, what the heck if I don't have any other choice? I need all of those files.
I was beginning to think about frontend to "genisoimage"... say, a GTK app, allowing to create an...

A short story about Infernet Exploiter usage in popular P2P app "Shareaza".
