Apel către frații moldoveni cu cetățenie română

Sustineti-l pe Iulian Capsali la europarlamentare

Frații mei români, de dincolo de Prut,

Fac un apel către voi, deși sper să nu fie prea târziu!

După cum probabil știți, în zilele de 24-25 mai 2014, România va trimite în Parlamentul Europei 32 de aleși să ne reprezinte, ca popor, în fața Europei. Este un moment crucial pentru noi să trimitem pe cine trebuie, acum, când suntem la doi pași de posibila legalizare a căsătoriei între persoanele de același sex.

Magento error fix: "Cannot retrieve payment method instance"

Thinking about upgrading and optimizing Magento? Think again if you have plenty of extensions installed and later on, you want to get rid of some of them, especially when they are payment methods.

Why eNom sucks?

Why eNom sucks

I won't say much about this. eNom just sucks. Why? Because when I tried to register a free account with them I got this error: We are unable to process this transaction because we are currently not accepting orders from this IP.

They've just lost a customer for future domain names. Going back to Godaddy (which also sucks, but at least they have nice discounts).

How to use OptiPNG recursively

Few hours ago I wrote about image optimization with Jpegoptim. Now I'll write few words about Optipng, a PNG and GIF optimizer. 

OptiPNG is a PNG optimizer that re-compresses image files to a smaller size, without losing any information. This program also converts external formats (BMP, GIF, PNM and TIFF) to optimized PNG, and performs PNG integrity checks and corrections. If you wish to learn how PNG optimization works, or to know about other similar tools, see the PNG-Tech article A guide to PNG optimization.

How to use Jpegoptim recursively

Jpegoptim is a Linux software that does what the name suggests: is does optimize jpg images. It is one of the two recommended software for Google Pagespeed optimization.

As this software doesn't have a recursion parameter, we use a trick to parse all the subdirectories where we have jpeg images to be optimized.
