Doing risky things can be a lot of fun. A solid dose of adrenaline, quick decisions, testing limits of your abilities and equipment.

The long story short, yesterday after work we went for little sight-seeing with my car. The day before I left all my recovery equipment at home (even including my air compressor), so we just wanted to explore the area of the Tążyna river and find remains of an old village.

Not only with work the man lives. Recently we have found a great way to kick back after our nine to five duties.

Most probably you have watched the marvelous Tron movie. Or at least heard about it. Either the original (which is considered a breakthrough in computer-generated special effects), or the remake (well, a cheap remake in our opinion).

Now, one of the most known scenes from the movie is the light cycle race. Fast-paced, state-of-art 3D effects (I am talking about the original from 1982) made us all want to ride such a vehicle.

It's been a while since the last blog post. But guess what: we've been working on improving Wikidot! The Change log says all: 29 issues has been closed since April 8th and also a lot of behind-the-scenes work has been done to improve performance and maintainability.

NewPage awesomeness="true"

First of all, the oldest of the wishes (wish no. 1) and also one of the most voted: NewPage module autosaving has been implemented. Using the mode attribute of the NewPage module pages can be created without showing the editor to the user. You can do it by setting one of two new modes: mode="save-and-refresh" or mode="save-and-go". Mode names are self-explanatory, the first refreshes the page with the module after saving the new one, the latter redirects user to the newly created page after saving it (omitting the editor completely). You can also specify a custom landing page by goTo="page-name" attribute for mode="save-and-go".

For a little over 3 years our office has been located at a local startup incubator run by European Centre of Youth Cooperation. They offered us a lot of help when our company started, but since Wikidot is not a startup anymore, it is time to move on and make room for new startups and young entrepreneurs.

For the last 2 weeks we have been preparing our new place — cleaning, painting, getting desks and furniture. Today we made a jump, quickly packed our things (we do not have that much stuff) and moved into the new office! Hurray!

At Wikidot we are all happy to say goodbye to Winter. Spring officially began a few days ago and believe me, we got tired of snow, freezing cold and windshield scraping in the morning.

Winter this year was substantially irritating. There were days we had problems geting to the office because of traffic jams caused by huge heaps of snow on the roads.

In 2002 and 2003 it was used by almost 90% of all Internet users. It was the most popular browser up to 2007 until it was supplanted by its successors and competitors. Now less than 2% of Wikidot traffic is served for users of that browser.

Internet Explorer 6 is now a way outdated web browser. It's not compliant with web standards such as CSS, XHTML and has serious issues with web security.

In March 2011 Microsoft officially dropped support for IE 6 encouraging users to switch to newer versions of the browser. They said newer versions provide better privacy and security settings, tabbed browsing and improved speed.

Following our user interface improvements path, today we are introducing a new and improved version of "My Account". We hope it will provide a much better overview of your Wikidot account and will be more intuitive to use.

Although the "Dashboard" (that is how we call it internally) only replaces and simplifies the old interface right now (no actual new features), it is still a work in progress — we are planning more improvements soon, e.g. overview of activity related to your Wikidot account and simpler profile management.
