My first gaming console

For a few days now, I got my first Sony Playstation console ever. It’s the new PS4 and I didn’t actually buy it but I won it as a prize in a World Cup related contest!

I’ve always considered myself more of a PC gamer and snobbed console games.Being a geek it is strange that my only pure gaming devices so far have been an ancient Atari console and the first Nintendo GameBoy! These where about 25 years ago. Since then, I only owned (a big number) of PCs and laptops. Recently also smartphones and a tablet, b
ut then again my use of these devices doesn’t actually qualify them as gaming devices.

After all, maybe I am not considered a gamer anymore. Of course my relationship with games has always been close due to various web properties that I own, but since my college years the only game I have played is probably Football Manager!

Anyway, as I started this note, I won a PS4 in Innogames’ World Cup prediction league of the recent Brazil 2004 WC. My relationship with Innogames is that I promote their browser games, on my we properties as a publisher and this fact gave me the option to participate in that contest since it was closed only for their partners. The competition was more or less predicting the final scores of every WC game and earning points according to how close you guessed the actual final result.

Well, I did pretty well and that earned me the new PS4! Thanks a lot Innogames! First impressions are great, this console produces incredibly great graphics! It’s 500Gb HD is currently occupied mostly by sport games simulations (like Fifa14, NHL14, NFL14 etc) in their demo versions but I am certainly looking forward to try other genres as well.

That’s all for now, I will come back with more detailed comments when I discover more features of this new electronic gadget :)

Alter webpage title on Joomla and K2 for SEO purposes

Recently, I  had to alter the <title> tags of a website built with Joomla CMS (version 1.5.x) and the powerful K2 content component, for SEO purposes. The problem was that the sitename that you define on the Joomla site settings was prepended to all title tags in all pages. For example if we suppose that the site name is “Sample site name”, the titles on my webpages where as following:

  • Homepage: Sample site name
  • Article pages: Sample site name – Article Tile

This is unwanted behaviour for SEO (and not only SEO) reasons. I don’t know if this is an issue only for websites using the K2 content component or a genaral Joomla issue. Anyway, the desired behavior is something like the following:
