A brand new version of my [fotoalbum](/2005/08/my-fotoalbum) is out today. Grab it while it’s still hot! With it comes a renewed version of the [fotoalbum WordPress plugin](/wordpress-fotoalbum-plugin).

WordPress has so many fotoalbum plugins for galleries hosted by flickr or other online image databases. I made my own [fotoalbum](/2005/08/my-fotoalbum) a few months ago and thus I wanted to create a plugin that can be used. It is designed to be simple and has only a few options yet, but you can already get single thumbnails from fotoalbum images and even whole contents of an album as thumbnails. It also displays the title of the image and uses the current number of image on the page as prefix.

Image showing logo of Ruby

Last weekend I began to learn Ruby. First I added a search engine for my book collection tool called Alexandria. I like the syntax, it’s much like python or perl, though I don’t like perl that much. Ruby seems to me a really neat language and I began to port my mkmovie tool to that language. Then I thought about a list of languages I already know, but I never made one. This should be the list, whether it is complete I’m not aware of – I’m happy I remember these 😉
