Estonian translation for eShop WordPress plugin

Just finished very rough translation for eShop WordPress plugin. Almost 800 strings are now completed as good as possible at this very moment and frankly, vacation seemed to be only time this year for that kind of job.

eShop is a decent shopping cart plugin for WordPress. Its free, packed with various features like using WordPress pages for creating products, email templates, discount options, admin access to an order handling system etc. Setting up your own store will take you 15 minutes and handling it later is truly smooth.

Installing new translation is simple. Just download the Estonian translation file (eshop-et.mo), upload it to directory of eshop under WordPress plugins folder and check, whether your WordPress is configured to be used Estonian translation as default language. Everything should work after refresh.

From digital to film

Two years of teaching media in Tallinna Lillek├╝la G├╝mnaasium are left behind and its a perfect moment to start thinking on forthcoming one. I’m having enormous amount of thoughts and ideas but since most of them are crappy (yes, I do thing crappy thoughts sometimes) then I’ll continue with only one.

My lovely students have always been very practically-minded and that’s a good thing. Hands-on lessons are equally fun to me as well. Like in the first year I tried to cut and glue “do-it-yourself” pinhole camera with my class. Even if there was no working examples in the end, students were happy and pointed out how motivating it was again to work with their own hands, paper, scissors and glue-stick for a change.

For some reasons although, I decided to skip pinhole camera assembling last year but I’m having thoughts of using film cameras in our practical works this year. It might be quite challenging to take pictures for schools newspaper with film camera.

Anyway, even teachers must practice and that’s why I bought a roll of film today, took a AGAT 18 out of the locker, mounted a film and started to teasing myself with thoughts how happy everyone are in the first lesson of taking photos with film cameras :]
