The "new"

'Sample Case' bei einem Nachwuchsband-Contest
Some days ago I started updating my website layout and improved some small things to get a better user experience. One of the main points that lead to my decision redesigning the layout slightly was my new notebook. On a retina MacBook some photos and layout-related graphics looked a bit boring.

The decision to not only change the images and graphics but to implement some changes I had in mind a while now was easy then. So I added a welcome page which will be extended soon, a working Lightbox which is now used in the photo and video gallery and some helpers for me as the admin user. And some experiences where real fun and helped me to gain some hope in the human race again.

... in der das Licht seine volle Magie entfaltet.
For example when testing the layout in Internet Explorer 9, the current version of IE on Windows 7, I saw what I not expected to see. I saw no layout hickup like I was used to from previous web design tests in the pre IE8/9 era. Well done Microsoft. Now you got the standard. After seeing this I was shure I wouldn’t have to make IE specific layout hacks. Anyway if you’re using IE, especially an older one, I’d suggest you use a more modern, better supported browser like Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Another thing added now is that I’ll be notified about every comment made to one of my blogposts. I missed some in the past especially on older posts and missed some spam in the past weeks. Sad that there are so much spammers but they’ll have no fun with me now.

If anything seems to not work properly or you have some feedback you want to give about the layout feel free to comment this post.

Comments, SPAM and CAPTCHA

Thu, 2012-01-19, 13:02

After silvester I had a massive SPAM problem in the comments on this blog with more than thousand comments in one week. This forced me to deactivate the comment functionality and to make all comments since silvester invisible. Checking each comments if it was SPAM would have been to time-consuming.

Now I reactivated the comment function, but it’s now required to solve a simple mathematic equation as a CAPTCHA (Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart). I really don’t like CAPTCHAs so I didn’t added them from the beginning of this blog. But the huge amount of SPAM now forced me to add them. If you experience any problems or have suggestions for improvements please leave a comment or send me an email.

EDIT: I now switched to the reCAPTCHA service after seeing that my CAPTCHA code was too easy to solve and spaming was continued. goes international

I planed it for some time and now it’s here. The internationalized version of Static content should mostly be translated. In the next days/weeks I’ll work on the translation of my content. It made me happy how easy it was to add translations via some rails plugins.

For some parts (like the Tag cloud) I have to think about a good solution for internationalization but this is also planed.

If you find mistakes in my translation please contact me!

Willkommen auf meiner neuen Website

Endlich ist es soweit. Nach dem die von mir getesteten, fertigten Blog- und CMS-Systeme mich nicht zufrieden stellten, habe ich nun ein eigenes kleines Blogsystem erstellt. Es wird nach und nach um einige weitere Funktionen ergänzt. Bald wird z.B. eine Galerie für meine Fotosammlung dazukommen.

Hauptziel dieses Blogs ist es, ein bisschen über meine Hobbys – hauptsächlich die Photographie – zu berichten.
