“Bitch I’ll pull out all your blonde extensions from their big black roots“. That’s what I heard when I saw Stathis on Saturday as he was watching You Tube videos. Seems that several people have been forming a YouTube community, essentially creating video blogs. I saw a clip a couple of months ago with the […]

Crazy Egg

Quick thoughts on the new online service provided by Crazy Egg. I’ve been using it for about a week now. It’s another way of looking at how users interact with your site. I use Mint for my stats package; Crazyegg provides three levels of visualisation of where the majority of visitors click on your site. […]


I definitely noticed spamming coming through, which left me scratching my head (50 in like a few hours). I guess those spammers are seriously getting their ass kicked by Akismet, easily the only ESSENTIAL plugin you want to have as a blogger of any description. Damn, was it really that bad before this plugin? The […]

Open Source Vector Programmes

Last year when Adobe bought out Macromedia, one of the main things I complained about was what would happen to my Freehand. Well we all know what’s happening, it’s a dead duck (no news about it, and no updates since the acquisition). They’re going to continue developing the supremely bloated Illustrator. You know the one […]

27 | Friendships

27 years ago yesterday, my mother gave birth to me in a little hospital in Saida, Lebanon. Usually around the time of my birthday I get supremely depressed. This can be attributed to the fact that every year that passes by I always feel as though I’ve failed in my one main goal in […]

Gimp Icons

I’ve been playing around with the Gimp a bit more. Yes I know, I’ve got a massive post about this and other Ubuntu goodness. To make things slightly nicer on myself I’ve downloaded this little theme that integrates the new Tango icons from the upcoming (and has been upcoming since October of last year) version […]

Ubuntu Powered

Need to get me some Ubuntu Powered Stickers to go onto my computer. (hat tip: Phu)

Contributing to Open Source

The last week has seen some movement on a couple of the open source projects I’ve been involved with in the past couple of years. I’ve already spoken about the first one but now I’m going to talk about the other project that I had such high hopes for which have been washed away and […]

Mighty George

I got this link (via Sylvane) yesterday and I’ve watched it like 10 times now. Every time I watch political debates/interviews I always find it extremely frustrating because the people are not talking about the real issues here, they’re smoke screened out. The ‘objective’ journalism is lost. In this interview George Galloway rips Anne (I […]

FOFRedux | First Contact

This is what I’ve been reading my feeds from for the past couple of days :).

I promised the guys on the dev team I’d keep it quiet until we had more kinks ironed out, but I’ve got to say that I’m so excited and over the moon that the new FOFRedux UI is now a […]

Pixar’s Cars

A new Pixar animation is generally cherished over here in Casa Broken Kode; then again do you blame me? After all they ’sand the underside of the drawer’ (it’s a policy they have at Pixar regarding how much car and attention they give to their movies). The last couple of features from Pixar have been […]

Firefox day?

Have you picked a friends for Firefox Day? I’m stumped as I’ve been shouting about Firefox from the top of my lungs for the past couple of years…
