As I’m using audioserve for almost a year, I’m becoming quite keen about it – it’s exactly what I wanted – simple, lightweight and works as I needed. With it listening to audiobooks is just a simple pleasure. Recently I updated audioserve server with couple more features, which might not be essential, but can be useful: multiple transcoding formats ( meaning target formats) and transcoding cache. Continue reading Next Audioserve Version
So finally there is something. I’m using it myself now to listen to audiobooks and it have almost all functionality I wanted it to have. It might be still bit unstable and few things is not well behaving (keep up long time in paused state, navigation between notifications and activities is still bit messy and few more issues), but generally it works.

Mybookshelf2 enters the stage, when code can be considered of alpha quality. Basic functionality is there, so it could be tried and I plan to move my ebooks collection to it soon. MBS2 is packed with new technologies and comparing to previous version (Mybookshelf) it can be considered a completely new application.
So what’s new? Concerning functionality not much, but a lot happened internally. For me it’s more about testing and playing with new technologies then managing ebooks (which is still important of course). Maybe some of currently used technologies are bit of overkill (like using WAMP protocol), but nevertheless they play important part in the application.

As a key benefit of new theme I see its responsive design, which it looks well also on mobile devices. Key mine customizations are:
- Customized logo
- Extended max-width of content – twentyfourteen has width of content some 440px, which leaves much unused space on normal screens, I extend it to double size.
Bit more on my old site. Old site was created some 15 years ago, with intent of simple and minimalistic space for some of testing and playing SW projects of mine. It had served me well so I decided to keep a copy also on this server, however I will not transfer all content to new site – mainly because some stuff there is really ancient and I’ve lost interest in it. I may transfer some content, which I consider still interesting or something that I’ll return to..
So my new site is started.
Final decision for CMS was WordPress – why to try something special, when tons of people are happy with it. Hope it’ll be OK for a small site like this. (Some time ago I’ve tried Drupal, but it’s much more complicated, WP seems to be much easier and intuitive. I can easily modify a theme to fit my ideas and also fix some plugins without any in depth knowledge).
So let’s see how it will be going on.
