Optimus Keyboard 2005-07-17
The nerd’s best friend: the Optimus keyboard.
Every key of the Optimus keyboard is a stand-alone display showing exactly what it is controlling at this very moment.
Think of this: 130 single OLEdisplays. This won’t be cheap but will be the eye-catcher on your desktop.
Of course this won’t make much sense for the 10-finger-blind-typing.
Besides that: It can really help you a lot to see what function is currently assigned to a certain key, think of all the shortcuts in Photoshop or other programs, tutorials with keys blinking in a certain order or things like that.

bBlog 0.7.5 is out now 2005-06-02
I am happy and somewhat proud to annonce that blogging software bBlog has been released in version 0.7.5, only a week after we started to work on it.
dark usable | a simple k700i theme 2005-05-25
This is probably the most basic theme for the Sony Ericsson k700 you will ever find :)
I made it about a year ago just when I got my k700i and all these animated and colourful themes were going on my nerves. Reason: They look cool but are very hard to read and use in the everyday usage.
Free download: dark usable (23 kb)
dmig | a minimalistic theme for bBlog 2005-05-22
I’ve just created a template/skin/theme (whatever you call it) for the blogging software bBlog and you can download it here for free.
Download: dmig.zip (18 kb / bBlog 0.7.2 – 0.7.4 compatible)
If you think it looks familiar, it probably reminds you of the old layout of Design made in Germany, which this is a tribute to.
Thanks for permission again to “Martin Rack”:http://www.martinrack.de!
I am thinking about releasing it for WordPress in the future, so if you might like that, you could drop me a line or a comment as an extra motivation that would probably speed up the process. ;)
Comments, wishes, and recommendations are always welcome.
Also, if you decide to use the template, feel free to add a comment with link to your site, as I would like to see who uses it.
* 2005/06/02 improved dmig theme is now official part of “bBlog 0.7.5”:http://www.pixelpope.com/journal/14/bblog-075-is-out.htm
- 2005/05/22 first release for bBlog 0.7.4
TGT Soft won't deliver Style XP 2005-05-21
Why won’t they respond to neither my Pay Pal payment nor any of my 3 emails?
I don’t know and as a paying customer, I don’t think I have to care about.
Lucky me: I payed by Pay Pal, not directly by credit card.
Thus, I could open a dispute on the payment. And as TGT Soft didn’t respond to this dispute within 10 days, the claim was automatically granted.
PixelZilla | a pixel style theme for Firefox 2005-05-19
Normally I don’t care much about skinnable software, so I use the default theme or look for a quite minimalistic one.
Same with Firefox – just ‘till I found PixelZilla, a cool pixel style theme for Firefox, Firebird, the Mozilla suite, and now even for K-Meleon.
Of course all Firefox skins are pixeled somehow. But this one goes for a reduced colour set, pretty much towards the high coloured trend.
