ODTÜ Yol Olmasın

Herkesin tatilde olduğu bir dönemde büyükşehir meclis gündemine gelecek olan ODTÜ’nün imar planı ile ilgili “sivil toplum kuruluşlarının” istekleri adı altında bir yağmanın önünü açma girişimi mevcut şu anda. 50 kilometre yarıçapındaki metropoliten Ankara içerisinde Atatürk Orman Çiftliği, Atatürk Kültür Merkezi alanları dışında “yegane saygın alanı” olan ağaçlandırma faaliyetleri ile Ağa Han Ödülü almış ODTÜ’yü çıkarlarına alet etmek isteyenlere, bir eğitim kurumunu daha rant sağlamak amacıyla yok etmeye kalkışanlara karşı herkesi göreve çağırıyoruz. Bir imza da siz atın.

First Impressions of Mac OS X Lion


The first thing I noticed right after installing it on my computer is that they inverted the scrolling direction with Mac OS X Lion. So, when you scroll up using your touchpad or the scroll wheel on your mouse, you navigate down on a page and vice versa. They imitated the touch-operated interface of iPhone. In my humble opinion, this is a very bad design choice. You might find it very frustrating and difficult to get used to. However, you don’t have to get used to it, as you can switch back to the original settings easily.


Lion recognized the NTFS partition on my hard disk and my NTFS-formatted external hard drive, but, unfortunately, there is no write support. I really hope they will fix this issue with an update, because it is kind of annoying to have to use 3rd-party applications to do such an elementary task.


They’ve shrunk the three little buttons at the top-left corners of windows. I don’t know why they did this or if there is a way to switch back to the old buttons. They look kind of weird.


I really liked the Launchpad. It makes it very easy to find and run an application quickly. They introduced a touchpad gesture for it, too, but you need 4 fingers -that’s right, four- to perform it. This makes it a little hard, but I like it anyway.

Smiley on the Blog

You may or may not have noticed (probably you haven’t) that there is a tiny smiley at the end of each page on my blog. I was curious when I first noticed it, because I certainly haven’t put it there. After a little digging, I found this info on WordPress support pages. Here’s what it reads:

In order to tell you all the cool stats about how many visitors you’ve had, which of your posts are most popular, and how people get to your site, we need a way to track things.

We’re able to collect this information by loading a small image to your page when someone looks at it.

And we chose a small smiley 🙂

That’s it. Mystery solved. I wonder who decided to choose a smiley as an image. For example, they could have chosen a 1×1-pixel image which could have been virtually impossible to see. It is cute, after all.
