Just wanted to tell why the site looks a bit strange at the moment. The thing is that this post contains a picture which is a tad too big for the layout. This makes the alignment of the page itself a bit strange.
The issue will be sorted as soon as I’ve written enough posts for it to disappear from the index site (which is one of the main reasons I decided to write this post).
Monday 21st of July, PARKEN, Copenhagen Danish SAS Liga
It’s time for the first league match of the season for us and we are hosting Esbjerg fB, who had a good run of results against us last season. Esbjerg was the team who started a string of really bad results for us, after beating us 2-1 in Esbjerg. It was also the team who ended our dreams of winning the cup, by sending us home after an extra time aggregate win of 3-2.
Esbjerg is a team which combines well and is in general a talented lot. A match where the fans of FC København want to see the team show that we are going to compete for the gold this season!
I’m not really sure about this line-up. I guess it’s plausible, but I can’t tell if Thomas Kristensen, who joined from FC Nordsjælland, has been signed to have more players in the squad or if he’s actually bought to strengthen the midfield here and now. Another option could be:
I must admit that I’m not sure how strong we are for this season. If you take a look at our signings, I would say that we’ve been weakened a bit from last season. That said our team should still be better than Esbjergs, but they did manage to give us a lot of problems last season. My bet for this would be X.
So, still holiday and not much has happened. Apart from me being in Ljubljana attending some friends wedding and in general having a great time of course! If you know me you’ve already seen the pictures and let’s just keep it at that, since not everybody are supposed to watch my pictures! HAH!
Else we can tell you that FC København has signed César Santin from the Swedish club Kalmar FF. César is an attacker / offensive midfielder, who apparently can play all the offensive positions and I can’t wait to see him in action for us, when he joins the 24th of July.
César will be our 3rd Brazilian in the current squad, joining Aílton José Almeida and José Júnior. That might give us a problem with non EU citizens at some point, but we’ll have a look at that later on I guess.
Also we’ve signed Thomas Kristensen from FC Nordsjælland. Thomas is a central midfielder, who can play on both wings as well. He’s been in consideration for the Danish national team for some while.
Finally I guess I need to remind you that our season started this Thursday, when we played away against the Northern Irish club Cliftonville FC. Needless to say, we won 4-0, with 1 goal from Hjalte Bo Nørregaard, Zdenek Pospech and two times José Júnior! On monday our real season starts at home against Esbjerg and if you’re lucky (and I remember it of course), you might get some movies or pictures…
I guess that’s all you’ll get about football for this time and instead I’ll let you enjoy this little YouTube video. It’s the worlds greatest prank call!
Well hello boys and girls! It’s been a while since I last saw you and an even longer while since you last saw me! There’s not really any good reasons for this, apart from the fact that I’m a lazy bastard. The motivation for posting anything of interest here has been near non-existent, but I guess that a small update now and then is the least I should give you.
What’s going on you ask? As mentioned not much… I’m on vacation from the school, so at the moment I simply sit around playing computer, playing my Wii and surfing the internet for possible signings and sales for FC København. Since the main subject of this blog is about football, I guess I should start with writing a little about that:
So far FC København has said goodbye to the following players:
Lasse Qvist (Lyngby BK) – Free Transfer Marcus Allbäck (Örgryte) – Free Transfer Michael Silberbauer (FC Utrecht) – Free Transfer Michael Gravgaard (FC Nantes) – Around DKK 30m?
While we’ve said goodbye to three first team players, so far we have signed no one, but two players from the B team has been promoted:
However there has been quite a few rumours about different players, which might join us, but honestly I got no idea whatsoever if it’s going to happen or not, so I’ll leave it out of this post and maybe look closer at that at a later point.
If we stay in the football world for a while, we should look a little at the draw for the UEFA Cups first qualification round, where no less than 4 Danish teams was in the hat for the draw. This ended up in the following ties:
FC TVMK Tallinn – FC Nordsjælland
Cliftonville FC – FC København
Bangor City FC – FC Midtjylland Brøndby IF – B36 Tórshavn
The first leg will be played on the 17th of July and the second leg is the 31st (apart from FC Nordsjælland who play second leg on the 29th).
Enough chit chat about football for now, so let’s go to the computer games, which mainly is how I’ve been spending my holiday so far. My parents arrived home from China in the end of June, bringing with them this nifty little game:
A game which I’ve been playing a lot and thus managed to complete it (not 100%, but 93.9% so far) in a mere 23 hours. It’s a shame really as it’s a great game, which Rockstar Vancouver has created. It’s a lot like the Grand Thef Auto games, but this time it takes place at a boarding school called Bullworth. I don’t want to spoil the story if anyone should be interested in playing it, so all I’ll do is recommend it!
Well you might think something like: ‘Now this incredibly long rant got to be over for sure!’, but I have to disappoint you. Because I’ve not only been playing the Wii, since I’ve managed to get my fingers on:
Lego Indiana Jones, yet another really really great game, which actually is a vast improvement. game play-wise. compared to Lego Star Wars II. I’ve been spending quite a while playing this and yet again it’s a game I’ll recommend to everyone with a game inside. It works fantastic with my Logitech Dual Action controllers (which are PS controller clones), so it’s just about getting started!
I guess that’s it for my ‘short’ holiday update and all there is left to say is ‘Enjoy the day!’
Just a short notice to say that, as we tried to update the Mandigo theme from 1.33.1 to 1.34 we encountered problems that killed the site completely. So as of now (until we get a new Mandigo update, which fixes the problem) we’ll run on another onehertz creation…
First of all, I have apologize for my long absence. Looking back at my ‘recent’ posts, I see that it hasn’t been very inspiring what I’ve been writing. I guess one of the reasons for this is that I’ve been in a bad mood due to the way FC København was playing (luckily it’s the summer break now) and of course I’ve been working hard to follow my lessons.
To sum up on how school is going, we’re currently having our ‘end of semester project’, where we are making a bigger program, than we’ve done so far this semester. First, we were split up into groups of 4, where we cooperated with making UML models, sequence diagrams and use cases. Then we split up into 2 men groups, where we are making the program itself. It’s a great challenge, but I’m sure that our program will be near perfect!
I guess a lot of lame excuses and beating around the bush ain’t going to suit you, so I guess I’ll just plunge into the subject, named in the title ‘Linux Distributions’. I’ve had Linux installed before, first time I tried it I had a very old Red Hat distribution on a laptop which I used for exams. For just writing and all, it did perfectly, but my knowledge on programming back than was no where near good enough, to use it as a permanent OS.
A few years later I got so fed up with Windows XP just being an arse, so I decided to try and install Fedora on my desktop (when I had to reinstall Windows XP). It was back in the days when Fedora was still on the 5th version, these days it’s Fedora 9.
But, once again I had to realise that my knowledge into the world of programming, still couldn’t match the technical difficulties of Fedora. So I gave it up as a bad job. I have no idea what made me keep coming back to Fedora (call it the Red Hat beta if you want to) instead of searching the market for other distributions.
Now, after nearly a semester of learning how to code, I guess it would be a great time to try and get a Linux to work. What was the first thing I did? Yes, you guessed it. I turned my eyes toward Fedora again. But luckily I got time to test the different distributions, so let’s do a few short cheers for the ones who have a ‘Live CD’. I decided to make a little Google search saying ‘What Linux distribution is best for my needs?’ and one of the first sites that was returned looked interesting, as it was for something called ‘Zegenie Studios’ Linux Distribution Chooser’. That sounded just like the thing I was looking for.
With great anticipation I clicked the link and found it to be a test, with a few questions on things to find out ‘your computer knowledge level’, ‘what Linux distribution you can install on your computer’, ‘what level of hardware support you need’, ‘what drivers the distribution should have’ and so on. It gave me some interesting results and I decided to download the following distribution Live CDs:
The test didn’t suggest that I should use Fedora, as it may require knowledge of Linux, but I decided to download the latest Live CD, so I could compare the current releases with each other. Besides it wouldn’t be fair to Fedora, that I was basing my judgment on a very old version.
Now I’ve been testing them, to find out which one is the best for me. First I tried Fedora and my first impression was good. Even though I thought it looked a lot like the older distribution I had of it. Since I was using Live CD’s I couldn’t do much, but I tried doing a few things and noted down a piece of paper what I thought of it.
Secondly I popped in Ubuntu and I most be honest to say, that already from the first eyesight it looked better than Fedora. It even performed better, but that is not saying much thinking of the fact that it runs entirely from the CD ROM drive.
Next up was openSUSE, so far my clear favourite (I haven’t tried Kubuntu yet, but I guess it would be unfair not to try it) as it seems very easy to use and I didn’t have many complications in finding out how I should do different things. The version I tried was 10.3, but in 13 days, the 19th of June to be exact, version 11.0 will be released. Of course I’ll try that one too, before making my final choice.
Finally Kubuntu, but so far I haven’t had my chance to test it. I will look closer at it, but I don’t expect it to be much different than Ubuntu. I guess all there is left is for Kubuntu to surprise me.
To end a long rant about something uninteresting (if you have no computer knowledge or just couldn’t care less about my problems finding the right Linux for me), I’ll point out that this entire post is written in Firefox running on the openSUSE 10.3 Live CD.
Enjoy the rest of your evening and please remember to feed the ostrich!
This time we’ve had a longer downtime, aprox. 30-45 minutes, due to a few updates we needed to do. Firstly, we updated the WordPress engine itself from 2.5.0 to 2.5.1. Secondly we have updated the Mandigo theme from 1.32 to 1.33 and finally to 1.33.1. Tom has been so kind to supply us with the following patch notes:
+ language: Slovenian (sl_SI) + added an option to disable submenus in header navigation + added gravatars support in comments + added support for the new image classes in 2.5, no more hair tearing! (well hopefully) * grammar fixes: Brazilian Portuguese (pt_BR) * grammar fixes: Norwegian (nb_NO) * MAJOR code cleanup * fixed non clickable sidebar links in IE6 * now using the packed version of jQuery * fixed the “restore default color” links
* added an option to wrap one paragraph at most * moved image control options from misc to posts
We actually skipped the update from 1.32 to 1.33 and did 1.32 to 1.33.1. But, since the theme has gone through both updates, I guess that you want to know both of the things that have happened.
And just to end the post, I guess I got to tell you that we’ve updated a few plugins too, but… As I want to keep which one I use a secret, I wont tell which
