The actual future of this Web Site

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Well, I don't know if anybody still reads the frontal page of this site, I know there are some articles that still bring about quite a bit of traffic, but the frontal page, not so much.

Lets face it, this site never really had the best name, it was a name of an old user account from an old free hosting company that no longer exists. But I was quite nostalgic and I bought it.

Things have changed a lot in the world of Linux and in the world of Web Development, now Linux is incredibly easy, and everything in the Web Development revolves around HTML5 and responsive mobile web development. And as it changed, I changed myself. Some times I really do feel like everything I learned before, the way in which I used to do things, has become completely obsolete. But that is a good thing, isn't it?

I overcomplicated myself with this Web Site, making it increasingly difficult to publish new things, but I do have new things to publish, a lot of them. Also my grammar has improved, and I am now writing this from the United Kingdom.

So, to not make this even longer, all technical articles will be proof-readed, simplified and publish in a new site called codeffeine.com, and a lot of new material will be added there. The motivational articles, and there will be more in the future, will be posted at wakeitnow.com. And this site will be used for my Photography and my personal thoughts and opinions. As for the Spanish material, anything that can be useful will be moved over to www.diezcuriosidades.com and the rest will remain here.

The goal is to improve the designs, the quality and the quantity of the material presented, and to begin offering some Apps as well, coding Apps at Codeffeine, organizational Apps at WakeItNow.

Happy New Year 2013

Saturday, December 31, 2012 | En Español

A whole year without publish anything in the website, but what a year. With new businesses, websites, and now engaged, this year was, without a doubt, the best year. But I'll make the next a best year, and I wish everybody a great year full of joy and fulfilled purposes.

Ghosts from the past

Saturday, December 31, 2011 | En Español

Not only the great teachings and the technology are passed from generation to generation. Along with all of these, also comes the prejudices, the hatred and the social stratifications that were created along the way. Many times these were originated because of a desire of control, others because of pure greed, some because of fear, and some times because of a feeling of entitlement held by small groups of the population.

Learning from a mistake

Monday, December 12, 2011 | En Español

I had a new experience in life yesterday, one which I never experienced before: the experience of being robbed. While the details are not important (I am perfectly fine), I am going to sound a little crazy but I am actually glad that it happened, in this way at least.

Here comes the photographs

Thursday, October 06, 2011 | En Español

I have been doing some additional modifications to the platform-something that I use in this website because Thingamablog, which was the original system that I had in place, just can't handle galleries, not that I know off, and while I considered to just install a gallery system in here, I do have a certain vision and a set of features that I want in the platform of this website. And as this is my personal website I don't mind taking the time to build the system as I like it, even if it results in longer times to post while I build it.

Site updates: I'm still here! The future of this website

Tuesday, September 13, 2011 | En Español

To call the last couple of weeks "hectic" would be an understatement. The one year anniversary of the website came and went, and everything that I was preparing for the day was superseded by the need to eat, by getting sick, running my first 10km race (while still sick), a family project, a friend's project, and the project of a couple of friends. I have been here and there and what little time left I had was directed towards finishing the system of this website rather than invested in the unfinished content.

But I am not abandoning this website, in fact I have several guides that need to be polished and more thoroughly tested in order to publish them. And the personal side of this website is just about to get interesting thanks to a trip that I will be taking very shortly. I am hoping to get some content for the photography section of the website (this trip is the reason it was created). Of course, all of the material will be offered under a permissive creative commons license.
