Evince, new vinyl and more

(click on the image to enlarge it)

I got Evince working :-) I had some troubles with it (wrong library naming: shell/Makefile.am adds -lt1lib when compiled with t1lib support, where t1lib only installs libt1.so on my system (default Gentoo t1lib build), resulting in a linker error. A symlink could have solved this, but that's an ugly solution, so now I patch shell/Makefile.am in the ebuild. I could even use sed, actually, because it's a one-line patch) but now everything works fine, including the popplet, dvi en djvu backend.

PDF font anti-aliasing works fine, but I couldn't get previewing (i.e. the feature enabling you to put a PDF file on your desktop, displaying not the icon assigned to PDF files, but the content of the file, as if it were an image or a plain text file) working yet :-( Guess I'll have to dig around some more, or is this a -cvs only feature? I got evince-thumbnailer installed, and it seems to be working fine though...

I bought the vinyl of Shameboy's first release, "Re-choque". The track has been hyped on Studio Brussel, a Flemish radio station, for a long time now. Shameboy is a project around Jimmy Dewit aka "DJ Bobby Ewing" (of Dicobar Galaxy fame), Luuk Cox (Budcemi's drummer) and a mysterious guy called "Mr. Morceau". Some phat beats blended with 80's electro synths and some great producers provide all ingredients for a great dance track. Guess that's the reason why this track is #1 on the Belgian dance charts for several weeks already :-)

If you want to hear some part of the track, check this.

I'm thinking of replacing my current b2evolution install with some other engine. b2evolution's development seems to have stalled completely, and some other products look very appealing. Some of the features I certainly need:

  • Multiple blogs hosted by one engine
  • Multi-user capabilities, with access controls (who can write to which blog?)
  • Themes (and preferably lots of themes available on the net ;-))

The main issue I'm facing is converting all current posts we got here to the new system...
If someone got a good suggestion, let me know :-)

Last but not least: we're making progress with the FedoraStateless@University project :-D Finally... :oops:

Hi, I have used Plog (http://www.plogworld.net/) for blogging. It has multiple blogs/users and themes (but I doubt that access control is as versatile as in b2evolution). I don't know much about blogging software (and what kind of features they generally have), so I'm also very interested to hear more suggestions.. :)

You could use wordpress. It doesn't have multiple blogs, but it has a very active community of development and a huge ammount of themes and plugins floating the web.
