I think it’s done…

Friday, June 19 2009 10:20 pm, GMT+1h Laura

I think I’ve finished translating the site :shifty: … It took me a lot and after I deactivated the old language plugin I found out it added a div to my link page!! And I was freaked out X( because it worked a moment before… and then, poof… nothing :?: (of course I stopped freaking out when I found out it was the plugin…) so I changed the bookmark template again, now it works (can’t believe a plugin add a div!! but not a <div> and </div>, gosh no! only a </div>! now I understand why I had to erase it from the template, gee!)

So if you find some errors please report them! I tried to look at everything but I’m only human :P not an alien :smart: :grin:

Need another revamp…

Friday, June 12 2009 11:40 am, GMT+1h Laura

Hello everyone… When you have no time ‘bad things’ happen… With the new version of wordpress some plugins don’t function properly so until the authors of those plugins work on them (bless you all, you really do a great job on them) some pages are yuck… Please be patient… And now I have to convert all the italian pages (53 tutorials!!) with another plugin because the one I have doesn’t work… I have a tutorial ready to post but I can’t until I have the italian translation ready… I’m trying and see if I can post it with the new plugin and keep the old ones with the other plugin, if there’s no conflict I’ll let it be for the time being (since I have exams at the university…) then little by little I’ll try to convert everything.

I even decided to erase some plugins because I’m not sure about them… Pray for me please… :P

Later –> Ok, it’s more complex than I thought… So right now I have both plugins but I had to ‘erase’ the flag where there is a transaltion… The ‘important’ things are tutorials and they have a direct link to the English or Italian page, the rest is not that important, I mean if there isn’t an Italian version for now. So I think I’m ready to post the tutorial but I need to translate it first so maybe I will post another ‘later’ later :P

Later 2 –> Added the tutorial ;) Gee! It didn’t work!! and then I found out I missed a tag! What a looser…

Back but not really back

Thursday, June 4 2009 7:43 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Wow, one post in all May… what a lazy butt! Well I didn’t just stop, something potentially bad happened and I didn’t have the willpower to enjoy my site (that and if you add the shitty ending of NCIS, my mood took really a dive for the worst but I’m not going to talk about that stupid TV show anymore). Now the potentially bad news which weren’t bad at the end, are over and my mood increase a bit from those good news (no, I’m not going to tell you about them in particular that is my life and I don’t post about personal facts). So here I am!

As from June 2 I started some wordpress tutorials, my hostee, Emilia, needed some help so I said, why not? So I created them and I’m writing an HTML tut now which will be ready in a few days.

‘Not really back’ in the title because classes are almost over so soon I will start exams and I need to focus on them so I don’t know how much time I can spare for my baby (the site).

Later

Happy Labour Day

Friday, May 1 2009 11:44 am, GMT+1h Laura

As the title says. Not much happened, I did made the screencpas but seeing that I really don’t like where it’s heading the show I don’t think I’m going to bother my site anymore. if you need them just tell me.

Did you watch CSI:NY? It was wonderful!! Now I know someone is going to die at the end of the season but if it’s not my fave characters, I think I’m going to switch to that show again (sorry but NCIS is too disappointing… first 10 episodes were good, then it took a dive for the worst, but big worst).

Yeah, it’s Labour Day but my mother is spring cleaning…

Yesterday I went to a new mall and it was so cool! The ‘new apperance’ is wonderful and it’s not difficult to find like some other malls and I didn’t get lost! I went to the chocolate shop and I practically melted there! Geez, I wanted to buy the whole store! (Yeah I’m a choco-holic…).

That’s it :D

Flooding

Tuesday, April 28 2009 9:22 pm, GMT+1h Laura

We need Noah’s Ark!!! It’s been almost three days since it started raining and it never stopped! Tomorrow I should go to Milan to University but Gosh! I don’t want to go with a boat! So I think I won’t go… Then it’s May the 1st which is holiday and there’s no class this Thursday so I think I take this week for myselg :P

Well gotta go, if internet connection isn’t down tomorrow I’ll post the screencaps even if I know I won’t like those four last episode of NCIS, but I’ll finish to cap the season no, I’m not going to finish them, will see in September if I’m back… (yeah, right now I’ll not be back, NCIS is dead)

How was the week end?

Tuesday, April 14 2009 11:23 am, GMT+1h Laura

Mine particularly good ;)

On Sunday I went out to have Easter lunch to a restaurant and the food was so good! I am picky, but I really eat a lot anyway! There was something which I don’t know the English name (well not even the Italian name…) and that king prawns as hors-d’oeuvre or starters. Then green gnocchi and rise with muchrooms and scallop. Of course I didn’t eat the second course because I don’t like meat too much and there was the lamb with cheese cornmeal porridge and feeled up squids. And then the wonderful dessert! Mascarpone with wafer and fruit! Wonderful! of course the ‘dove’ which is a traditional Italian ‘cake’ for Easter which had the shape of a dove.

Then my wonderful cousin came here and reinstalled Windows so now my computer is fine and healed from herpes ;) and it was his birthday, too…

Yesterday, Easter Monday was holiday again and we had lunch together with my relatives again eating some hors-d’oeuvre, ravioli and tortelli, some meat and the ‘lamb’ which is a cake (just like the dove, it’s a traditional Italian sweet) made with puff pastry and confectioner’s custard. Wonderful!

Today I went to return the RAM because they didn’t work for my pc and to take the modem which stopped working three months ago so they changed the RAM to the right ones and my pc is super fast now ;) and the modem was resetted thanks to a power surge (so it wasn’t broken). Now I’m happy ;) Still have to download Nero for my burning DVDs but I don’t have to burn anything till the 28.

And I’m going crazy with the Easter Egg Hunt at Unicreatures :P hope to get more today :shifty:

Later!

Earthquake News

Tuesday, April 7 2009 12:37 pm, GMT+1h Laura

There are survivors!!!!

They were able to find a 98-year-old woman who was in her bed knitting! She seems fine and talkative. Another girl was extracted from her destroyed house after 23 hours and she’s alive. The students’ house came down… It is really bad when you go to a city to have a culture and then it bites you in the ass… And the earth keeps shaking…

And it happens again…

Monday, April 6 2009 8:23 pm, GMT+1h Laura

This morning another earthquake shook the center of Italy (epicenter l’Aquila). After 1997 this is the first with the same intensity. From what I know a two-year-old was saved because her mother covered her with her body, the mother died, the girl was rescued. I’m sure there are lots more of stories like this one, some will end tragically, I hope more will end good. And to think a researcher predicted that something like this was going to happen and as it happens in movies he wasn’t listened to and even denounced for false allarm! link.

Why those things happen alway around festivities?

Boh…

Friday, April 3 2009 10:57 am, GMT+1h Laura

Yesterday I installed some new plugins in WP :smart: , and today I found out that lots of links in my link page disappeared :pensive: so I went to the link page in the wp-admin area and I found that those links didn’t have a category anymore :?: :?: Don’t know why the category went AWOL… Now it’s all ok, but still it’s a mistery…

I have to go to the doc today for my father, doc is at 11.45 :-| and then to buy a new phone (for the house) because the one we had, just stopped working… Today is the day of misteries…

Later!

Later –> Agr!! X( X( X( My mom read the time wrong and the doc was at 12.45!!! Had to wait an hour! But :love: the doc was cute, young and cute and nice… I think I’m in love :love: :love: :love: Pity it’s his last day here… he’s only the substitute of my family doctor :lonely: :lonely: :lonely: . But while waiting I went to have a pizza :P

Back home

Thursday, April 2 2009 5:57 pm, GMT+1h Laura

So my father has a new nose. He should have come home yesterday but he didn’t so he came home today. Everything was ok, pity I couldn’t see the doc operating him :( . There was also a kid and he seemed so brave :P and another one had to postpone the surgery because he was sick…

By the way, yesterday I uploaded the NCIS screencaps of the new episode which was better than the previous. But still not good enough to be back next season.

It seems that winter is back… it’s so cloudy and rainy! I hate rain X( it makes me sleepy :tired:

Later :P

New Theme!

Monday, March 30 2009 9:29 pm, GMT+1h Laura

What do you think of the new theme? I kinda like it ;) and I change the error page, too. If you want to see it just click here :D

And I revamped the links page which now is mantained by wordpress. I was finally able to put links in column… wasn’t that difficult but gosh! Took me a hell of a time to understand! Want a tutorial? Maybe I’ll make one ;)

Tomorrow is the big day, the hospital didn’t call this time to postpone :P wish my father luck!

See ya!

Translated Tutorial

Sunday, March 22 2009 2:11 pm, GMT+1h Laura

Yep, today I only translated ‘the tutorial’, will start to work on the code pretty soon.

This morning I’ve made lasagne (the real lasagne   :tongue:  ) but we won’t eat them for now… my mom froze them for when my dad’s in the hospital but it’s Friday and I said ‘but you can’t eat meat on Friday’ (not that I wouldn’t eat that seeing that I’m not religious) so we’re going to eat them on Saturday :-(( almost a week from now ;-(   ;-(  and now, after I’ve post here I’m going to eat a sweet shaped like a dove because it’s a traditional Italian Easter sweet ;) yummy! Oh and I found some chocolate eggs that are the end of the world!! They’re super yummy! Kinder is the brand (which is Italian not German!!)

And I added some new Waikiki’s (hamster) pictures.

And I have a new project, I usually look at my fave’s on Sunday and search for tutorials, brushes, textures etc which can be useful for me, so I thought ‘why don’t put them all in a post and once a week post it for you, too?’ So from next Sunday I will post a fave’s post and so on every Sunday (maybe I won’t sometimes, depends on whether I have time or not ;) ) Do you like the idea? So when you don’t know where to find resources you come here and look around ^_^

Later!
