REC – The movie

The latest movie¬† I watched, was “REC”, it’s a Spanish horror movie. Watching the trailer, I was persuaded that I will be buying this movie once it comes on DVD!

The beginning of the movie is a bit uncommon, it’s using the same method as CLOVERFIELD¬† for filming. The camera is shaking all the time and you really feel that you’re “in” the movie, and the horror scenes are really well done. I like these kind of movies.

The story starts with a journalist who’s trying to make a documentary on firemen, and she goes to the fire station with her camera man.

First few minutes are in the fire station, showing how firemen live and work together. The journalist is waiting for the firemen to go on a mission, so that she can film the story…

Watch the trailer for yourself… You can find links on this page on where to buy the DVD…the scariest movie ever.

I would not recommend this movie for people with heart disease and people who can’t tolerate horror movies. And for those of you who can tolerate, watch it with your friends!

There are rumors about the second part, that is REC 2 to come out soon, but I can’t confirm anything as of now…

WordPress 2.7 (still in beta!)

WordPress is one of the best blogging platforms available today. Gibni as well as a lot of other big blogs are based on WordPress.

Most of you should already have heard of WordPress, and for some of you who didn’t yet, go to www.Wordpress.org to find out what it is!

Developers are currently testing and improving the latest version of WordPress, that is the 2.7.

It was supposed to be release the last month (in November) but some some reasons, nothing happened back in November! But fortunately, beta versions of 2.7 got out and today, Gibni is running on an Optimized version of WordPress 2.7 RC2. The optimization mainly consists of adding a new feature to the “big query” of wordpress, adding the ability to sort and output posts based on their ‘post views’, this is done by Amir from Gibni.

I’m still waiting for the stable release of WordPress 2.7, so that issues like “TinyMCE not working properly when switching from visual to html”, get solved and I can some peace of mind.

To test beta versions of WordPress, just surf to www.Wordpress.org and look in the download section.

Maybe in the near future (I hope), when a stable version of WordPress 2.7 will be available, I will release to the public my Optimized version of WordPress so it will become easy for every one to create dynamic “Featured Articles” lists of posts (based on their post views).

By the way, the present theme running on Gibni, which is “Prince Blog Theme version 3.0 Advanced” designed and developed by Amir, is close to get out of beta. So make that easier and faster, please provide feedback on the current theme.

MyBlogLog Widget is SLOW!

I’ve been using MyBlogLog widget from Yahoo, from the beginning, and I was really happy with it at first. I used to find out who visited my site and if they’ve had a blog or website, it helped me to find and visit it easily.

Now that Gibni is expanding and I get more and more visitors per day, I am worried about the speed and loading times, so I am trying to make pages load faster and faster.

I’ve been using caching techniques, CSS sprites and other optimization techniques some developed by myself and some mostly inspired from AskApache ; and managed to get the best possible loading speed.

Today, I feel it’s going to be the last day for MyBlogLog widget on Gibni. And within the next 12 hours, it will be removed. The main issue with this widget is that it makes many requests to Yahoo servers and this keeps client’s browser connections busy, so it slows the page and the user has to wait for this widget to be ready to have all the site’s functionalities.

If you are using this widget on your site, it might be slowing it down too. Visitors usually don’t like to wait more than few seconds for a website to appear and be fully functional. This will affect your site’s impressions.

This widget has a quite heavy javascript file, and uses a lot of separate image files.

On the other hand , it”s a good tool to build a “website/blog community”. At last, all depends on what matters the most to you?
