Православен Календар 2007 в iCal формат

сряда, декември 27th, 2006

Реших и аз като добър християнин да допринеса нещо (според силите си) : преписах църковния календар 2007 (онези книжлета дето ги раздават в църквите) в iCal формат.
Направих му и сайт че не всеки разбира какво е iCal и има ли той почва у нас (а ето и добър преглед на iCal клиентите – само да добавя Google Calendar и Yahoo Calendar).
Ето какви (под-)календари има :

  1. Официални църковни празници: съдържа всички големи църковни празници които не са в неделя
  2. Църковни недели : Празниците в неделите (понеже в печатното издание са с червено, т.е. празници).
  3. Църковни празници : съдържа всички събития от календара които не са в горните категории.
  4. Именни дни : Това е самостоятелен календар, който слага по-често срещаните именни дни в календара.
  5. Официални държавни празници : това са официалните неработни дни от сайта на Парламента.

Значи за да получите пълния Православен календар насложете календари 1-3 (като 2 и 3 ги оцветете в червено при наслагането).

Преписал съм (доста внимателно според мен) целия Православен календар за 2007 на Светия Синод на Българската Православна Църква.
Естествено ако намерите грешки просто ми напишете в кой календар са и къде точно и аз ще ги оправя.

Да не забравяме че това е едно перо за приходи на църквата и целта ми не е да го затрия.

Весела Коледа.

Само истини : нищо че са за една друга държава.
Ще го копирам на английски – дано да го разбирате (че кой ли не разбира английски тези дни). Весела Коледа !

By Dave Barry
    Once again, we come to the Holiday Season, a deeply religious time that
each of us observes, in his own way, by going to the mall of his choice.

    In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians
called it “Christmas” and went to church; the Jews called it “Hanukka” and
went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing
each other on the street would say “Merry Christmas!” or “Happy Hanukka!” or
(to the atheists) “Look out for the wall!”

    These days, people say “Season’s Greetings,” which, when you think about
it, means nothing. It’s like walking up to somebody and saying “Appropriate
Remark” in a loud, cheerful voice. But “Season’s Greetings” is safer,
because it does not refer to any actual religion. Some day, I imagine, even
“Season’s Greetings” will be considered too religious, and we’ll celebrate
the Holiday Season by saying “Have a nice day.”

    Some of you may be unhappy with this dereligionizing of the Holiday
Season, and you may have decided that, this year, you’re going to celebrate
it the old-fashioned way, with your family sitting around stringing
cranberries and exchanging humble, handmade gifts, like on “The Waltons”.
Well, you can forget it. If everybody pulled that kind of subversive stunt,
the economy would collapse overnight. The government would have to
intervene: It would form a cabinet-level Department of Holiday Gift-Giving,
which would spend billions and billions of tax dollars to buy Barbie dolls
and electronic games, which it would drop on the populace from Air Force
jets, killing and maiming thousands. So, for the good of the nation, you
should go along with the Holiday Program. This means you should get a large
sum of money and go to a mall.

    Unless you live in Indonesia, there should be several malls within five
miles of your home. It makes no difference whatsoever which one you go to:
Under federal law, all malls in the United States must have the same 42
chain stores. You have your chain bookstores, your chain clothing stores,
your chain shoe stores, your chain restrooms, your chain electronic-game

    The basic idea behind malls is that they are more convenient than
cities. Cities contain streets, which are dangerous and crowded and
difficult to park in. Malls, on the other hand, have parking lots, which are
also dangerous and crowded and difficult to park in, but – here is the big
difference – in mall parking lots, THERE ARE NO RULES. You’re allowed to do
anything. You can drive as fast as you want in any direction you want. I was
once driving in a mall parking lot when my car was struck by a pickup truck
being driven backward by a squat man with a tattoo that said “Charlie” on
his forearm, who got out and explained to me, in great detail, why the
accident was my fault, his reasoning being that he was violent and muscular,
whereas I was neither. This kind of reasoning is legally valid in mall
parking lots.

    So when you get to the mall for your holiday shopping, the first thing
to remember is that you should not park in the parking lot and walk to the
mall buildings, because you will probably get killed. Instead, drive your
car right up to and, if possible, right into, the mall building. This is
perfectly legal; people do it all the time. In almost every mall I’ve ever
been to, the corridors were littered with cars, recreational vehicles,
snowmobiles and motorboats left by smart parkers.

    Now you’re ready for the actual shopping. Your goal should be to get it
over with as quickly as possible, because the longer you stay in the mall,
the longer your children will have to listen to holiday songs on the mall
public-address system, and many of these songs can damage children
emotionally. For example: “Frosty the Snowman” is about a snowman who
befriends some children, plays with them until they learn to love him, then
melts. And “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” is about a young reindeer who,
because of a physical deformity, is treated as an outcast by the other
reindeer. Then along comes good, old Santa. Does he ignore the deformity?
Does he look past Rudolph’s nose and respect Rudolph for the sensitive
reindeer he is underneath? No. Santa asks Rudolph to guide his sleigh, as if
Rudolph were nothing more than some kind of headlight with legs and a tail.
So unless you want your children exposed to this kind of insensitivity, you
should shop quickly.

    Here is a very efficient shopping method: Divide the amount of money you
have by the number of people on your gift list to get an average dollar
amount per person. So if you have $160, and you want to buy gifts for 10
people, your average is $16 per person. Now find something that costs $16,
and buy 10 of whatever it is. You’ll find many useful gifts in this price
range; for example, you could get 10 family-sized bottles of vitamin B.
Everyone, young and old alike, can use vitamin B, and your children are sure
to shriek with delight when they find it under the tree.

    If you want to buy gifts that are a little more personal, you should
follow these guidelines:

Gifts for Men
    Men are amused by almost any idiot thing – that is why professional ice
hockey is so popular – so buying gifts for them is easy. But you should
never buy them clothes. Men believe they already have all the clothes they
will ever need, and new ones make them nervous. For example, your average
man has 84 ties, but he wears, at most, only three of them. He has learned,
through humiliating trial and error, that if he wears any of the other 81
ties, his wife will probably laugh at him (“You’re not going to wear THAT
tie with that suit, are you?”). So he has narrowed it down to three safe
ties, and has gone several years without being laughed at. If you give him a
new tie, he will pretend to like it, but deep inside he will hate you.

    If you want to give a man something practical, consider tires. More than
once, I would have gladly traded all the gifts I got for a new set of tires.

Gifts for Women

    Again, you should avoid buying clothes, but not because women don’t like
clothes. The problem is sizes. First of all, women’s clothing sizes don’t
mean anything. Suppose you’re looking at a dress, and the tag says it’s a
size 14. You could measure that dress with every known measuring instrument,
checking for every known unit of measurement, and you would never find any
dimension that was 14 anythings long. Not only that, but you would never
find any dimension that corresponded to the same dimension on any other
size-14 dress. Not only that, but chances are you would never find any woman
in the entire world who would admit to being a size 14.

    Another problem is color. Women do not see color the way men do. Suppose
several women are in a paint store, looking at a sample of orange paint. The
paint-can label may say “orange,” and the paint may appear obviously orange
to a male, but the women will never use the word “orange” to describe it.
They will say things like: “It has a lot of blue” or “It’s much too gray.”
Don’t ask me to explain it. All I know is, if a woman tells a man she’d like
a green scarf for Christmas, he’ll go out and buy a scarf that he believes
to be green, based on his concept of “green,” which he got from crayons in
the second grade. She will look at the scarf as if it were covered with
maggots, then show it to her friends and say: “I asked Harold for a green
scarf, and just look at what he got me.” They’ll all have a good laugh, and
she’ll return it.

    So the safest gifts for women are e pensive little bottles of colorless
liquids, which are sold at cosmetic counters under names such as “Eau de
Water” and “Endless Night of Heavy Petting.”

Gifts for Children

    This is easy. You never have to figure out what to get for children,
because they will tell you exactly what they want. They spend months and
months researching these kinds of things by watching Saturday-morning
cartoon-show advertisements. Make sure you get your children exactly what
they ask for, even if you disapprove of their choices. If your child thinks
he wants Murderous Bob, the Doll with the Face You Can Rip Right Off, you’d
better get it. You may be worried that it might help to encourage your
child’s antisocial tendencies, but believe me, you have not seen antisocial
tendencies until you’ve seen a child who is convinced that he or she did not
get the right gift.

как да си направим “Start меню” а-ла windows в MacOSX

Навярно и на вас като на мене ви е писнало да трябва да отваряте finder прозорец само за да си пуснете някое приложение и ви е липсвал “Start” бутона.
За радост това има просто решение : просто си завлачете “Applications” папката в таскбара (след чертата, до кошчето).
И след това като чукнете с десния клавиш (или Ctrl-click за apple фанатиците) и готово : имате си списък с приложения 🙂
Аз лично съм си сложил и /Applications и /Users/kgeorge/Applications 🙂
