iOS bits and pieces

Canon PowerShot S1 IS

During recent visit to UK, I bought myself Canon PowerShot S1 IS. I wanted it ever since I read the review on They have said everything you need to know, much better than I could possibly say or test. It looks nice, like a “real” SLR camera, has 3Mpx which is just enough for an amateur like me, with two gems: 10x optical zoom and IS - Image Stabilizer.

License change

BY 2.0 logo

In the changes done over the weekend, there is one small, but significant. All of my works (grouped under the name Sparks) are now licensed by Creative Commons Attribution (BY) 2.0 license.

This truly allows you to use this code on any sort of web site - commercial, private, non-profit - any. The only thing you need to do is to give due credit. You can do that by:

  • linking back to my site, either from the page where you use some of the Sparks or from the about or colophon or similar page

  • retain / add the comment into respective .js or .css file

Thank you.

Rest of the content, like actual posts, photos and graphics, are fully copyrighted by me. If some specific content is published under different license, it will be noted on the page in question.

Why the change from previous BY-SA license? Well, I was regularly waving off the SA part of the license for the ADxMenu (by far the most asked about), thus I wanted to make it easy for everyone.

Design I can smile at. It was about time.

I was an artist. I used to create things that would make people go ahhh. I used to create web sites that people talked about.

When I look at the designs I did last year, there were maybe only one I could brag about. The rest is generic, nothing out of the ordinary. It was really depressing to think about that. Header, footer, two or three columns. Blocky, all damn blocky. And I really like to break blocks.

Where the hell has my artistic sense gone?

This blog runs WP 1.5 now

WordPress, the blogging software platform I`m using, has reached version 1.5. The news of it has spread and all reactions are really positive - I have not seen any negative comment yet.

I downloaded 1.5 on the soft-launch day, but had no time until this weekend to actually try it. I read the announcement, read the reactions and reviews, but I was mainly interested in two things:
