Petrosilius Zwackelmann from Der Räuber Hotzenplotz (2022)

New papertoy is an potato-obsessed wizard Petrosilius Zwackelmann as played by August Diehl in “Der Räuber Hotzenplotz” 2022 film. I’ve enjoyed this role of his too much to pass on the figure – it’s insanely entertaining and this evil wizard manages to be touching in his struggle with peeling of potatoes.

The figure turned out very cute and also boasts a completely new experimental feature – optional changeable faceplates.

Zenphoto | ru_RU locale update

Zenphoto Russian localisation - work in Poedit

Most of my web/tech/software-related projects address my own needs first and foremost, so my work on update for the Russian localisation stands out, as I’ve never used software localisation for anything and actually prefer my soft interface to be in English.

In this instance, I’ve decided to take this project on, for 3 reasons: it provided a somewhat new experience, no one else to do it instead and feeling of accomplishment, that I always get after a neat project wrap-up.
Lets explore these reasons in some details.

Zenphoto theme | Paradigm (ver. 1.6)

Zenphoto theme Paradigm - version 1.6

A new version of Paradigm theme for Zenphoto CMS comes very soon after previous release.

If version 1.5 was a collection of stuff I was working on for a almost 5 month, here and there, adding and fixing stuff, as I had a bit of time to work on it, version 1.6 is a beast of different kind.
When my life feels out of control and long-term, mid-term and short-term plans are gone out of the window yet again, I see myself again and again taking on this kind of work: code, solitude, problem-solving and being in control. Working on my web-projects and anything adjacent is almost therapeutic, it allows for regaining control in at least one section of my life and works as a “palate cleanser” against stress. That’s how I was able to check off so many items from my Paradigm To-do list, including some major items, that were actually planned for Ver. 2.0!

I’ve added support for several plugins and added more options for existing implementations, but my major concern was cleaning up of the code and reworking Options, as this was a major setback, that impacted speed of my work and was just a pain to look at. While working through it all, I’ve found a lot of small bugs and plan to report or just submit my solutions, when I have more free time.

Changelog and my notes are below. Bug reports and features suggestions are welcome.

I’ve also added new screenshots to the Screenshots of Paradigm ver. 1.6 Gallery on my Demo site.
