I did some changes on my photography web site: cleaner and minimalist look for the galleries, easier navigation of the archives section and a new set of photos to look at. Check all the changes in detail on my other blog.
Flickr’s RSS feed photos link to the regular photo page, with too many links, buttons and banners distracting from the photo (specially if one of your photos gets “invaded” by award groups). The Lightbox view, with its dark background, is a much more suitable landing page for the photos published via the RSS feed.
With this simple Yahoo Pipe you can retrieve your photostream RSS with photos pointing directly to the Lightbox view! Just insert your Flickr User Id and export it any way you like.
The latest version of my Article Of The Day Android app is available on the Market, and now has the options to browse older articles, besides having a shiny new icon!

I finally decided to move my techie blog from the free public host where it lived for some years to my own paid host, where, among others, I already have photo blog. The blog has been upgraded but the concept remains the same, to host my various technology related posts, but with a new twist: posts in Portuguese. I don’t have a “blog post rate” that justifies creating a new blog in Portuguese, so the solution will be having a new section in this one.
Although all the posts have been migrated here the old version still lives as a backup in read-only mode.
I’m not very happy with the current hosting of this blog: the platform is becoming a bit outdated, looks like no activity going on over there (I don’t like “dead” services) and the it’s becoming a bit too slow for me. I have paid hosting with lots of storage and traffic available, and with a fully customizable WordPress installation available with just one click.
So sometimes, many times actually, I wonder why don’t I migrate to my own host, or at least to WordPress.com, and end this once and for all. Probably because I have to buy a new domain, I don’t think I could fit a tech oriented blog like this under temujinphoto.com, and importing all the posts from one blog to the other won’t be an easy task.
My other blog, the one less geeky than this one, had a facelift.
Just updated the blog to its fourth incarnation, which means I’ve updated the blog’s theme once again. Probably it’s just me but I like it a lot, it’s clean and minimal, even if I get bored of it in a few months.
[update] there some glitches in the single post view yet to be solved.
Once again it’s voting time for the next issue JPG Magazine.
I just created my tumblog!
“And what’s a tumblog?” some might ask. You could check at Wikipedia but if a blog is like a diary a tumblog is more like a scrapbook, a place where someone can post short notes, links, photos and content gathered elsewhere.
“And what’s so special about your tumblog?” some could ask also. It’s mine, it will include things like posts from my blogs, my Twitter activity (although I’m still discovering this one…), my photos and links I’ll share via my del.icio.us or Google Reader.
