Note to the English version. Apologies, if you find translation not very sound. Our website is primarily in Polish, but we are taking this effort, in case someone, non-Polish, visits us. Just to give him impression, what is it all about. Unfortunately, we cannot translate everything.
Welcome to private website of Marzena and Witold Malecki. We don't know, who you are and how did you get here. And somehow, no matter why, I take into account, that you may not necessaryli like our site or even find it irritating. Better find it out for yourself!
But, what anyone needs private website for, anyhow? There are probably as many precise answers for such question, as the number of websites. We can only speak for ourselves. We will explain it by one analogy.
Some people have a habit to not throw away the things, which "are still quite good" or "may be useful once", despite they for long time are not finding any use for these things. Such theoretically useful pieces of rubbish are able, over the years, to fill-up the biggest flat and large house. On the other hand, in some countries there is a good custom, to display on the street,from time to time, in front of the house, things, which are not needed. Any by-passer can have a look, and if finds something useful, he can take it.
Analogically, like material objects, we collect various memories, experiences, ideas, thoughts, and so on, spiritual things, useful rarely or never. So here we have such a collection of virtual junk, what we decided to put outside, on web street. And each internet by-passer, who has some time and wishes to do so, can have look. Can he take anything? We will be pleased, if anybody finds here anything useful for himself, idea, inspiration, anything.
Our site was born many years ago. Created in rush, it remains very simple, never improved, modrnized. Let it stay this way - as a kind of Internet antique monument. I will just try to keep it alive.
Passing of time is always the same, but the world is going ahead. Faster and faster. Towards which destination? Brighter future or destruction? To be up to date, we have to live fast. Too fast for many, including me...
Website is five years old. For its anniversary deserves an overhaul or facelift.
I have no means to do that, so my site is already like open air museum. But museum doesn't have to be totally dead. So I have an idea for "raptularz".
One may say, that it is ancient Polish name for blog. A kind of. I regret, it will only be available in Polish. The title says for itself:
I have to warn, that one can find it very boring: much more writing, than pictures.
More, than half year passed since I put my website online. In short blink of the eye there will be one year since I began to work on it. In the mean time I learned some things. For example. I'm just able to translate or make summary of small part of texts to English, the rest must be in Polish only, forever. Posting a lot of pictures consume server space much faster, than writing. It's important, because according to old Polish proverb, that even the ugliest fill find his/her adorer, my site also has some faithful readers, not only watchers. Furthermore, it is very difficult to update, correct, modify the site without spending a lot of time in front of computer. I don't care about the layout anymore, because various screen resolutions are in common use, which one to select?
One of the results of my learning is the latest invention, which I call newsletter. It is intended for easy posting mixed updates and some new ideas, which cross my mind, without disturbing existing pages. Kind of safety valve for protecting integrity of my website. Unfortunately, again, no chance for English translation.
