Lecture about Mozilla at the University of Veliko Turnovo

Thanks to the kind cooperation of Interlecta, a lecture about Mozilla in Veliko Turnovo is to become a fact.

Bogomil Shopov will talk about the history of developing the open source browser Firefox, since the first Mosaic through Netscape, Phoenix till its present version and the browser’s upcoming fifth birthday.

The second and more interesting discussion will be about open web as Mozilla’s vision on this subject is fundamental about the Internet freedom and sharing, the adequate usage of the web, and the right to own one’s personal information and contents in the world wide web.

Several of Mozilla’s products will be presented in the third part of the lecture and it will be outlined how everyone can contribute to their development.

According to the information published on Novinite website (a Bulgarian news release website) Mozilla in Bulgaria is more popular than in the rest of the world as a whole. In Bulgaria Firefox is used by 39.1% of users and by 23,75% in global plan.

In October last year Interlecta released the Firefox translation add-on MozTrans which gained popularity very quickly and is now used by thousands of users.

The lecture will be on Thursday, October 15th, in Corpus 3 of “St.st. Cyril and Methodius” University of Veliko Turnovo, starting at 4:30 p.m.

Calendar Generator – something very simple

This is something very simple.

It happens that I often need to print various calendars, like weekly or monthly, to keep track of my task and later to use for reports.

I wrote this very simple PHP script that will output a week calendar on the screen that printed will spread on the entire page.

The information is published at GoogleCode:  http://code.google.com/p/boyanov/wiki/CalendarGenerator.

The code is available though Hg (Mercurial) at https://prototypes.boyanov.googlecode.com/hg/ or for direct browsing at http://code.google.com/p/boyanov/source/browse?repo=prototypes#hg/calgen.

Opened GoogleCode account for prototypes

I decided to share my prototypes at GoogleCode. The page is located at http://code.google.com/p/boyanov/.

I was looking for a place to store some of the code that I write from time to time. I needed something reliable that is free and that will last for longer. There are may hosting services offering storage for open source projects, like SourceForge, and they all have their pro’s and cons’. The features I was looking for were: source code repository; download facility; content management. I found GoogleCode quite convenient and convincing, so I decided to create a page there.

Another reason to make that choice was that there is offered Mercurial version control, I thought that it is time to start using on of the distributed version control system.

This should be my primary blog

I have another one that I host myself, but I often have to update the software, install plugins manually and many other things.

I will rather use what is provided by the WordPress.com team.
