New software

Great new piece of software, recently discovered by me - Foxit PDF Reader. Just a few advantages over the standard Acrobat Reader: it's faster, simpler and, most important, it allows you to save data in PDF forms! Yes, the so much desired feature, that is not available in the free version of Acrobat is readily usable in Foxit absolutely free of charge.

Drupal modules

I like Drupal a lot. It's a great system, easy to set up and use, and the most important thing, there are plenty of modules, which provide additional functionality. However, every time the Drupal development team release a new major version, the module authors have to change their modules in order to adopt to the new platform. This is a major drawback, because it is a considerable obstacle for those, wishing to migrate to the new version.

Future plans

I haven't posted much to this site recently. In the future I want to fix that and start publishing more often. I plan to introduce a few new topics, aside from software and finance. In particular, photography and health & fitness will be covered. Stay tuned.

MySQL 5

I have upgraded my hosting database to MySQL 5. Let's see whether it gives me any trouble. So far it seems to be much faster, than the previous version.
