Portable documents

nincsenek megjegyzések

Adobe created PDF to people have a portable document format. However, this format requires a special program which is unusuable for any other purpose, e.g. you can only read Adobe PDFs with that. Besides, to generate a PDF you need either a f*cking expensive software or an open source PDF printer software – the latter usually do not handle the special characters with a suitable manner.

But we haven’t choice.

Really?

If you want to use a REALLY portable document format, which does not need any special software, or you don’t want to expend a huge amount of many to create it, choose HTML. HTML is originally intended for distributing technical documents and other writings. Its syntax is easily learnable, and the only software is needed to create an HTML document is a plain text editor, like Notepad, Notepad++ or Kwrite. Once you created an HTML document anybody can read it using a browser.

Do you need any more for a portable document?

End and continuation

nincsenek megjegyzések

The HTML Info was hosted on polyhistor.hu for almost 8 years. This period finished in March, this year. The Polyhistor Co. left a short message on its webpage:
polyhistormessage

Dear Visitor,
We finished our hosting service in March, 2009.
Our customers are served continuously by Deploy IS Co.

LOL. I did not get any notification just my visitors mentioned that a simple message is visible instead the content.
So, I have to move the locally stored content to http://htmlinfo.hu. You can find them under the Tárház and Alapfokon menu items. The job goes slowly because the content to upload and rewrite is large.

What are the newspapers?

nincsenek megjegyzések

Because I deal with writing articles as well, I am member of a journalist association. We contact and accept new members on-line. I received an email today with an interesting question.

The Chairman wrote:

The issue of the new wannabe member faces us an important question: What is a newspaper? I would be glad if you’d share your ideas.

Well, hereby I do it. The candidate did not have any article in a printed newspaper — she works for the online media. Thus, the question is: Can we name the workers of the online media as journalist? I think, definitely yes. They are journalist because they do the same as a journalist. They collect data, inform about events, write article. And we read them. What is the difference? Both of the ‘traditional’ and ‘electronic’ journalists use computer for writing articles. Both of them work for the readers.

What is the difference? The product you read? Not, only the presentation medium.

Can we refuse the ‘actor’ title from the TV or movie actors, just because they do not play on stage? Not. So, we can not refuse the the ‘journalist’ title from the ‘electronic’ media-worker.

A week without Google

nincsenek megjegyzések

The Unfficial Google Blog announced a week off and asked:

What would you miss the most if your ISP blocked all Google services for a week?

It would be very inconvenient without GMail, but I can find some other possibilities for maps, searches, etc.
However, I would be definitely happy without Youtube :) – And without Google, the web pages would load faster because the Analytics tracking code would no longer work…

I have been using WordPress in a hosted environment for a while on http://htmlinfo.hu. As the TLD shows that is a Hungarian blog, but there are some things I’d like to share with wider public.
