WordPress 2.6 ... the "saga" continues!

July 15, 2008 6 comments

And after over a month of development, the team of WordPress has released another major update of the platform's most beloved blogger, or at least from me.

We are therefore in WordPress 2.6 !

There are many new features:

  • review system of post
  • support gears;
  • preview of the themes;
  • publication via Bookmarlet;
  • correction of 194 bugs;
  • more ...

I refer you to the site of the good old (not so eh) David for a detailed explanation of the changes introduced (with lots of screens).

I have already updated without problems, only a plugin that makes the tantrums, but beyond that no hitch!

How about you? What aspects?

Milan-Inter derby

May 5, 2008 2 comments

Many know of my faith Inter and many others will know the outcome, alas not too favorable (for me at least), the last Milan derby Milan - Inter ended with the victory by 2 to 1 the Rossoneri.

I was at the stadium and I must say it was a 'beautiful emotion, regardless of the outcome ...

The thing that I liked was the choreography are the two fans that I can not help but make available to everyone ... really very scenic and very nice! Very beautiful teasing on one side and the other ... that's the beauty of football!

In return, have not failed to reveal their dementia (unfortunately not senile) "my" fans, those Nerazzurri, who during and after the game have flooded the first link (AC Milan) of litter and especially of objects of all sorts. Fortunately inconvenienced or more ... just a few insults and much sorrow to see so much nonsense concentrated in such a small space!

To tell the truth I had also the demented side ... but more moderate, their was only a cheer from idiots that I was stressed out and deafened for most of the match (I do not speak to Inter, because my friend Milan player, who sat at my side, he could strangle them would have done).

Well in short, a good game, shame about the result ... but something definitely worth it!

Forza Inter!

Ps: we hope to win this championship next Sunday at home against Siena ...

"Faith" in YamamaY ...

April 14, 2008 No Comments

Finally ... after months of insistence towards my colleague, I managed to convince him to take me with him to see a lot of her cousin who plays women's volleyball in A1!

The team in question is YamamaY Busto Arsizio.

Tumultuous journey by train deleted and "hijacking" by us of a bus with a driver rather bizarre but friendly and helpful (we will have probably done worth) in making us fall in the vicinity of this building seemingly unattainable (Palayamamay).

The game was really exciting despite the odds gave totally favored Despar Perugia, the opponent that week before ages recovering from a major victory in the international (European champions). The final result was 3-2 for Perugia, but that effort!

Point by point ... all played in just minutes a tiebreaker final: 16-14 for the bad (I tifavo rightly YamamaY).

Admittedly, in the bottom right was missed!
Let me explain: it is possible to remove the last point, the decisive one, the number 4? Oh no ... he was going to win ... removed ... lost! We had "faith" in YamamaY, really great "Faith"!

No matter, it was a good game, a good night and a good reason to give the coup de grace to my voice and my throat that were, unfortunately for me, already at the limit!

The return of the playoffs, has seen a defeat clearer ... alas now YamamaY is right out of the game ... but at least I was there! If you do not believe ...

Thanks to me for having forced / convinced my colleague, and thank you guys for the lovely evening!

... The world in a room!

January 18, 2008 No Comments

It is the meter, yes that's right, the subway. I talk about that in Milan regarding my little life experience.

I go out to work and get on tram 24 in via Ripamonti and I go to the subway, M3, the yellow line, as every day, never a face equal, always people, at least in appearance different.

Whites, blacks, Asians, South Americans ... the whole world in one compartment of a common means of transport: a "coach" of a meter. And I smile, I smile often, while with headphones in their ears listening to my iPod and a few songs, mostly nostalgic or mawkish, and start looking around, observing those around me.

All racing, rapid and hurried to return to their homes, as impulse huddled at the door that opens like a race in which the starting blocks trying to get there first. Then for the first thing I have not yet figured out, except in cases where the delay could affect my "take the train in time." But the thing that fascinates me about this world of a few square meters in which the crowd rushes, is calm.

Near bus stops, "strategic", people is true that it is "running", but when you travel, the silence is sovereign ... a silence broken only by the sound "physical" Metro. But the song of the bottom of my iPod, which accompanies this show is magnificent silent. See the faces of all, tired but relaxed, where they find their little moment of peace and tranquility because they can only wait, wait to get ... then they calm down and it's like they were in some sort of peace.

I enjoy, so I enjoy watching them and I calm down, I smile and I feel very happy for a moment, but especially rilassatissimo. It is the most beautiful part of my return trip of the day after work. Do not worry then we think the train to take away the smile with its delays and whatnot ... but at least for a few minutes around the world in a room.

The Antichrist ...

January 8th, 2007 No Comments

Excerpt from "The Antichrist - Curse of Christianity" - Friedrich Nietzsche:

"What is good? Anything that raises the sense of power, the will to power, power itself in man.

What is bad? All that stems from weakness.

What is happiness? Feel that the power is growing, that resistance is overcome.

Not contentment, but more power; no peace over all, but war; not virtue, but vigor (virtue in the Renaissance style, free from hypocrisy moral virtues)

The weak and the botched shall perish: this is the beginning of our love for men. And to that end it must also be their help "

I think there is too much need of explanations for this "piece" ... but if you read it with the correct interpretation is a wonderful piece.

Right now I feel weak, and I hope will come soon shift from inner death to rebirth to superman. I speak purely a mental shift.
