Automatic screenshots upload to SeaFile

As you probably know, I am a big fan of SeaFile. I like to have my data in cloud. It is very convenient. What I don't like is to share my private data with other people. Or companies. I just like to have a control over my data. So some time ago I was researching some alternative to Dropbox and after few tries I found SeaFile to be the most suitable for all my needs.
There are hoverer two task I was still using Dropbox for. One of these were the nice ability to automatically upload recently taken screenshot to the Dropbox and quickly share it. This is really nice feature.
Recently Brian Teeman wrote an article about taking screenshots to share online.
This article is very interesting and if you are looking for an easy to deploy solution for it you should definitely read it. But Brian's solution just wouldn't fit exactly to my workflow so I created my own.

Joomla! World Conference 2014 and ...

So we finally made it and we are sitting in the plane. If you are following me at social media you probably know that it wasn’t that easy. But now I am looking forward to see my home. 24 hours later than it was actually planned. We are somewhere between Houston and Frankfurt and I can’t sleep. I barely can sleep when flying. Not to mention that it's 5:30 in Europe (most of it) and this is the time when I am usually waking up.

My thoughts about the new Joomla! structure proposal

I will borrow the introduction sentence from Roberto; if you are reading this article then you probably know exactly what it's all about. Otherwise I should most likely envy you ;)

Disclaimer: Although I am one of the OSM directors everything I have written below is solely mine and only my personal opinion.

Before explaining to you what I think about this proposal I would like to thank all those people that were involved in its creation. I really appreciate the work and time you put in this. I especially would like to thank those people from the team that are responding in a civilised way to criticisms of this proposal. I can imagine how hard it can be. I have also no doubt that all intentions behind this proposal are genuine and honest.

I have to also admit my personal failure and apologise for it: I should have read this proposal much earlier and stated my concerns much clearer perhaps.

The currently discovered bug in VirtueMart is ...

... exactly this, a bug in VirtueMart. Despite the attempts of VM developers to pin this vulnerability to Joomla!, I can assure you, this issue is solely a VirtueMart bug. Nothing more.

I am a bit astonished and disappointed about particular medias reaction and also about VirtueMart efforts to declare that this is Joomla!'s issue. It's not.

Ice Bucket Challenge

I personally think that the ice bucket challenge is bad idea. Well not exactly. The idea itself isn't that bad. What bothers me a bit that people are doing advertising for this particular organisation.

No way

There is no way around it.
Deep and dark like a sadness.

Do you want to disable right mouse click at your website?

From time to time I see people asking how to block the right-mouse-click on their website. Even worse, from time to time I am visiting websites that actually are blocking the right-mouse-click. Even worse, there are extensions for Joomla! offering this functionality.

If you were ever considering to do this at your website, please take a cold shower and forget this idea. Here is why!

Joomla! 3.3 Beta 2 has been released

A warning for third party developers

Dear Joomla! extension developers, dear template creators;

You know that Joomla! 3.3 Beta 2 has been released. Do you?
And you installed it already on your dev environment. Have you?
And then you installed all your extensions/templates on Joomla! 3.3. Right?
And you tested everything very extensively. Have you?
And in case you found any issue, you helped Joomla! core developers to fix the issue at least by reporting it. Am I right?
