Taxis and security

It is quite encouraging that citizens taxed in Greece are able to file their tax reports through the Web, at the Taxis Website.

Kinja και πρόβλημα ελληνικών (utf-8)

Όσοι είχατε δοκιμάσει το Kinja.com θα παρατηρήσατε ότι δεν μπορούσε να εμφανίσει τα ελληνικά σωστά. Ήταν πρόβλημα στο τρόπο χειρισμού του κειμένου από το λογισμικό της εταιρίας. Τώρα γυρίσανε σε Unicode (utf-8) και το πρόβλημα λύθηκε. Ακολουθεί η απάντηση που έλαβα: I’m sorry it took such a long time, but we finally have database/driver support …
