I just released updated versions of the following DokuWiki templates:
- vector – current MediaWiki/Wikipedia look and feel.
- monobook – traditional MediaWiki/Wikipedia look and feel.
- prsnl10 – minimalist template, suitable for portfolio and personal websites.
All of them are compatible to “Angua” and its awesome new media manager. Have fun.
WordPress 3.0 is out. Normally, nothing important to me because I never used WP for blogging or something else (I don't trust its security). But now, I'm puzzled: The new default theme ”Twenty Ten” got a very similar look and feel compared to my ”mnml-blog” DokuWiki template I created for this blog.
Don't get me wrong: No one copied something from someone. I saw “Twenty Ten” the first time today after reading the article about WP 3.0. Additionally, I'm pretty sure no WordPress developer ever visited my small blog and “Twenty Ten” was started far before I began to develop “mnml-blog”. But it is frustrating to me that thousands of blogs will now look similar to mine. Argh.
However, I have to live with it. It took a few days to create “mnml-blog” and I'm still very happy with it's look, therefore I will keep it. Shit happens.
Fifteen successful years are gone since Rasmus Lerdorf released PHP 1.0 – a long time for a software, especially for a language generally grown and maintained as an open source project. Here's to the next 15 years!
I did my first steps regarding web development with PHP3, first serious projects with PHP4.1 (back then, MSIE 6 was brand new and innovative as hell ).
Some links, containing more background information:
I just redesigned my blog and came to the decision to write my coming postings in English.1) Reasons are various, mostly I want to improve my English skills. Additionally, my blog will get a strong focus on the internet and its technical background. I simply reach more persons with English because even most non-native speakers working as web developers should understand English good enough to get the information they might want.

I will write a posting about this key during the next weeks or so (Update: There it is). It comes with a nice hierarchy, making subkey changes possible without loosing the WebOfTrust plus usage of the best fitting algorithm for the different tasks.
