All I can say is, SUEET! It is a project that integrates best of breed Open Source .NET software to produce an online community suite. That makes it a direct competitor to Community Server and, to a smaller extent, mojoPortal.

I’ll be looking at the possibility of migrating That Stupid Club which is currently running on CS to Sueetie. CS was nice, and for a while was the only choice, but it is just too big and too complex to customise easily.


Just found out about brainfuck from Peter Schneider’s blog post about his Powershell brainfuck interpreter and compiler. Classed as an “esoteric programming language“. So subversive. And such an appropriate name. Created by Urban Müller in 1993, it has only eight commands. Wow!

“Hello World!” looks like this:

[>+++++++>++++++++++>+++>+<<<<-] The initial loop to set up useful values in the array
>++.                             Print 'H'
>+.                              Print 'e'
+++++++.                         Print 'l'
.                                Print 'l'
+++.                             Print 'o'
>++.                             Print ' '
<<+++++++++++++++.               Print 'W'
>.                               Print 'o'
+++.                             Print 'r'
------.                          Print 'l'
--------.                        Print 'd'
>+.                              Print '!'
>.                               Print newline

Needless to say, I will not be using it in any project soon.

CS 2.1 Optimised CSS

I decided to hand optimise the default CSS that came with the CS 2.1 package, both for the mental exercise as well as to derive a less verbose set for me
to customise any future CS projects from.

The totaled file size is reduced from 179 KB to 140 KB, not too impressive but I’m sharing it anyway in the hopes someone might find it useful.

CS2.1 Optmimised CSS v1.1

Note that there should be no changes at all, visually.

Update: Ran the files through CSSTidy, down to 103 KB.

White as Milk for CS 2.1

Yet another adaptation of a minimalist WordPress theme, “White as Milk” by Azeem Azeez.

I did the variant with the dark background by request. Not quite happy with it, but I think its usable.

White As Milk for CS2.1 v1.1

Please comment if you are planning to use it, together with the URL of your blog, as Azeem requested to see it in action.
