3 years ago @ shox.co.il

I’ve posted this exactly 3 years ago on my journal at shox:

Hillel's journal - fucking interesting stuff!

The title says “Untouched (by me)”, and the caption says “Just for your knowledge, that’s what the view from my house looks like *at this very moment*”.

Tags: Hillel, Sunset, Fuck Photoshop, Chris Isaak, There goes the first day of the rest of my life

Back then they had a good feature in shox, where you could play with the order of the tags in your posts (on most platforms tags are automatically sorted). This was a nice feature to have because it gave bloggers an additional degree of editorial freedom, ordered tags could be used to make mini statements (or write Haikus!).

Come to think about it, this is technically the first in the view from the afternoon series. On a later shox post I have also successfully predicted the coming of the year 2010. Any minute now I guess…

Also, in an unrelated note, art lovers (& also those who dislike art very much) are hereby personally invited to check out a few decades worth of stunningly beautiful paintings made by Hadasa Stoler (that’s my mom!): Body Colour – The Work of Hadasa Stoler.

Happy New Year!

My Hanukkiya is made out of old business cards!

Where are all the Sofganiyot?

I thought the first candle of Hanukkah was tomorrow (it’s today apparently!), so I’ve put together this improvised Hanukkiya that’s made out of some of my girlfriend’s old business cards!

Hebrew UI for Second Life

I’ve prepared an interesting case study about the localization of applications, and translated the Second Life UI to Hebrew in the process.

I’ve translated much of the XML based UI from English to Hebrew, and explored the possibility of a complete UI rearrangement (Hebrew is a Right-to-Left language). I’ve also researched modern tools to unpack and modify hard coded information inside executables (Resource Hacker by Angus Johnson is a nice, old and free example for that).

In my presentation (in front of a general audience crowd) I’ve explained the history of string storage in software, and used Second Life as an example for modern localization. To illustrate my point I’ve used some images from my own private stash, including a screenshot of the Cheat Machine (by a Forest Software) superb executable header [Slide 04], the Light Speed Cheat Editor [Slide 02], a PKLITE Header viewed in Norton Commander [Slide 03] and other 90’s/DOS goodies.

Among other interesting stuff, the presentation features some screenshots of my own applications [Slides 10 & 14] and of course screenshots of the Second Life Hebrew UI [Slides 11-13]. Please take the time to enlarge this presentation (Right click the presentation and select Zoom In, or use the built in zoom feature in your web browser).

UPDATE (April 13, 2008): Looking for Cheat Machine? Get it here.
