Star Wars Trilogy DVD Details

As you know now, the Star Wars Trilogy DVD will be out in September 2004 !

Here is the packaging preview :

This four disc DVD features the Star Wars trilogy.

  • Disc 1, Episode IV A New Hope: Eighteen years later, Luke Skywalker, a young farmboy on Tatooine, is thrust into the struggle of the Rebel Alliance when he meets Obi-Wan Kenobi, who has lived for years in seclusion on the desert planet. Obi-Wan begins Luke’s Jedi training as Luke joins him on a daring mission to rescue the beautiful Rebel leader Princess Leia from the clutches of the evil Empire. Although Obi-Wan sacrifices himself in a lightsaber duel with Darth Vader, his former apprentice, Luke proves that the Force is with him by destroying the Empire’s dreaded Death Star.
  • Disc 2, Episode V The Empire Strikes Back: Three years later Imperial forces continue to pursue the Rebels. After the Rebellion’s defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic. In an attempt to convert Luke to the dark side, Darth Vader lures young Skywalker into a trap in the Cloud City of Bespin. In the midst of a fierce lightsaber duel with the Sith Lord, Luke faces the startling revelation that the evil Vader is in fact his father, Anakin Skywalker.
  • Disc 3, Episode VI Return of the Jedi: In the epic conclusion of the saga, the Empire prepares to crush the Rebellion with a more powerful Death Star while the Rebel fleet mounts a massive attack on the space station. Luke Skywalker confronts his father Darth Vader in a final climactic duel before the evil Emperor. In the last second, Vader makes a momentous choice: he destroys the Emperor and saves his son. The Empire is finally defeated, the Sith are destroyed, and Anakin Skywalker is thus redeemed. At long last, freedom is restored to the galaxy.
  • A bonus Disc 4 includes the most comprehensive feature-length documentary ever produced on the Star Wars saga; and never-before-seen footage from the making of all three films, and much more.

Cortech ‘2004

Sunday afternoon,in Antoing, the “Cortech” took place for the second time. It is a parade in the streets of the town.

My wife, as she works for the “Foyer Culturel d’Antoing” , and I gave a hand to the organisation of the event.

She participated more than me, she had to sew the costume of the new “Madame Chat” giant.

It was fun and the streets were crowded !

Dimanche après-midi, à Antoing, the “Cortech” a eu lieu pour la deuxième fois. Il s’agit d’une parade dans les rues de la ville.

Ma femme, qui travaille pour le “Foyer Culturel d’Antoing”, et moi avons donné un coup de main au déroulement de l’évènement.

Elle a participé plus que moi, elle a dû coudre le costume du nouveau géant “Madame Chat”.

C’était amusant et les rues étaient pleines de monde.

Tag Gallery added in Posting…

I have implemented a new tag in any post…

The tag <gallery>AlbumID|Count|Size</gallery> !

This in conjunction with the “psnGallery.php” addon allows you to display within a post “Count” random pictures from the Coppermine Album “AlbumID” in the “Size” (1= small, 2=normal).

For example, to get 4 random small pictures from the Album 6 (Boussole), the following command <gallery>6|4|1</gallery> will give :

Easy no ? In my-hacks.php, you have to add…

Back from Senegal

As you noticed, I was not really active those last few days. In fact, I was very busy at work and finally I took one week of holidays to calm down a little bit my life… ;o)

So my wife and I went to Senegal for a “farniente” week !

What a wonderfull week we had ! We burnt our bones…What a pleasure ! Of course, we took few pictures. Few of them are in the Gallery area of this site.

“Aldiana 04/2004” album :

“Sénégal 2004” album (Peinture sur soie)

If you refresh this window, you will get other pictures from those albums….

Addons for WP available for download

I worked all the week-end in my house (in the kitchen in fact). Some manual work, “bricolage” as we say in French….But I took few seconds to deliver you few of my modules for WordPress.

So now, you are able to download :

  • psnStat which is the TFS addon module (you can see it in action on the right side of this page, requires TFS installed).
  • psnStatGraph which is the Pie3D of psnStat (requires JPGraph)
  • psnGallery which is the Coppermine addon (you can see it in action on this site, each time you see “random” pictures they are coming from a Coppermine album of the ).

I hope you will have fun with those add-ons to WordPress.

If you use one of those scripts, please, let me know !
If you want few adaptations or new functionnalities, I will be happy (if possible) to do it !

Read you soon !

TFS Statistic in 3D PieCharts

I have created a new plugin to TFS, it generates PieCharts for Top x Most used Operating Systems, Browsers and Countries. It is in fact an extension to the psnStat module.

Samples of graphical 3D PieChart for TFS Statistic….(figures for those last 7 days)

echo TFStatOSPie3D(‘thisweek’,5,1,400,200,true,’idaho_stat’); echo TFStatBrowserPie3D(‘thisweek’,5,1,400,200,true,’idaho_stat’); echo TFStatCountryPie3D(‘thisweek’,5,1,400,200,true,’idaho_stat’);

It uses the fabulous “jpgraph” library.

Three functions have been created for this :

  • TFStatOSPie3D($Frequency = “today”, $nMax = 5, $Header=2, $Width=400, $Height=200, $Legend=true, $dbname = ” )
  • TFStatBrowserPie3D($Frequency = “today”, $nMax = 5, $Header=2, $Width=400, $Height=200, $Legend=true,$dbname = ” )
  • TFStatCountryPie3D($Frequency = “today”, $nMax = 5, $Header=2, $Width=400, $Height=200, $Legend=true,$dbname = ” )

I will package and document those new functions and they will be available for download very soon.
