how to distort a text in illustrator 5

Hi I need help with fitting a text in a trapeze perspective shape, but I can't figure it out how to do it.. I'm looking for the same effect that the Photoshop transform distort tool does.. I spent hours looking at tutorials, and I can't find the right one as the text is not keeping the perspective nor the spaces between the letters.. any suggestions? I tried the shear tool, also I outlined the text, created a bounding box around the text, grouped the two then selected the free transform tool, dragged the corner, hold ctrl to adjust the text to the shape and it's taking forever to adjust the text to the shape with a sloppy result that takes an awful amount of time.. I'm under pressure right now as I need to get this sorted quick... In other words I would really appreciate any sort of help..

Francezii au facut niste sapaturi arheologice si au gasit la vreo 50 m
adancime resturi de fire de cupru. Dupa ce au fost cercetate cu atentie de
oameni de stiinta, s-a tras concluzia ca stramosii francezilor, Galii,
pusesera la punct o retea de telefonie subterana.

La aceasta neasteptata veste, nemtii, ca sa nu ramana mai prejos, au
inceput si ei sa sape si pe la 70 m adancime au gasit niste resturi de
sticla de unde, dupa alte cercetari, au ajuns la concluzia ca stramosii
lor, Gotii, pusesera la punct o retea subterana de fibre optice.

Romanii au inceput si ei sa sape; pana la 100 m nu au gasit nimic si au
ajuns la concluzia ca dacii comunicau wireless!

1. Pentru a va pregati sa deveniti mama, imbracati un halat de baie si fixati-va pe burta un sac plin cu fasole. Dupa 9 luni, scoateti doar 10% din continutul sacului! Pentru tatici: fugiti repede la farmacie, goliti-va portofelul pe tejghea si invitati farmacistul sa se serveasca. Dupa aceea, mergeti la supermarket si cereti ca salariul dvs sa fie varsat direct in contul magazinului.

2. Pentru a avea o idee despre cum va veti petrece serile, intre orele 17h si 22h parcurgeti in lung si in lat sufrageria purtând in brate un sac umed care cântareste intre 4 si 6 kg. La ora 22h lasati sacul, reglati desteptatorul la 00h00 si mergeti la culcare. La miezul noptii, treziti-va si parcurgeti din nou sufrageria purtând sacul timp de o ora. Reglati desteptatorul la ora 3h00. Imposibil sa mai adormiti, evident, asa ca treziti-va la ora 02.00 si serviti-va ceva de baut.Intoarcerea in pat la 2h45. Când suna desteptatorul, un sfert de ora mai târziu, trezirea! Cânta…

Cică domnul prim ministru plecase să taie panglica la câţiva kilometri de autostradă. Uitându-se pe geamul maşinii, vede la marginea drumului doi amărâţi care frământau chirpici cu picioarele goale.
Intrigat de ceea ce vede, domnul prim ministru opreşte maşina şi îi întreabă pe cei doi:
- Măi, oameni buni, nu vă este ruşine de faceţi nenorocirea asta de chirpici, într-o ţară membră a Uniunii Europene, care tocmai a reuşit, sub îndrumarea FMI, să se macrostabilizeze? Ce-i înapoierea asta? Ce faceţi cu amestecul ăsta oribil de bălegar, paie şi noroi?
- Domnule prim ministru, răspunde unul dintre indivizi, nu-l facem pentru noi. Îl exportăm în Federaţia Rusă.
- Îl exportaţi în Rusia?!! Extraordinar! Ce luaţi pe el?
- Ştiţi, ruşii nu prea au rezervă valutară, aşa că ne plătesc în natură. Ne dau o mie de AK-47 pe tona de chirpici.
- Sunteţi nebuni?! Introduceţi ilegal armament în ţară!
- Nuuu! Nu intră neam de AK-47 în România. Le reexportăm imediat în Iran.
- În Iran?! La teroriştii ăia? Ce luaţi…

Wordpress 3.3.1 custom fields

For those like me which struggle with the new wordpress 3.3.1 settings for the custom fields, read this.

When you go to pages, on the right upper side you will see a tab with a dropdown menu called "Screen Options".. Yes you're right that's where the page attributes, custom fields etc are..

What I still can't find is the template under the page attributes but I do see the parent and order.. if anyone can help please drop in a line..


Found the problem and embarrassing enough my path for the template was wrong.. I moved the template file to the /wp-content/themes

Megaupload got busted!

After I read few articles looks like the "Stop Online Piracy Act" SOPA and "PROTECT IP Act" PIPA it's happening.. The US government wants to shut people up as the freedom of speech we have today is too much to take in since the Wikileaks event. They will try by any means to take action against us, as now WE are a threat to them by having access to the online information. They want to take over the most effective free form of communication we have today, The INTERNET. They want to control it under a noble disguise act against piracy. This will not only censure every thing we do on the internet, but will allow them to have full control over it on an international level which will empower the US government to take legal actions and imprison people under this act. Hollywood and Universal Music amongst other big corporation had offered their support. Now Google, Twitter and Facebook are against it, but sadly enough they didn't take part at the Blackout on Wedn…

Wordpress 3.3.1 permalinks bug

I was customizing a theme in the latest Wordpress version 3.3.1. I wanted to set the permalinks from an early start to date and name and I got an error message:Not FoundThe requested URL /2012/01/19/bla/ was not found on this server

After googling a bit it seems like in the htaccess file the rewrite rules are the problem as they are trying to turn the URL into variables for the wp_query system. I tested it myself and the rules in the php file change once I switch to a different permalink option and I'm asked to click yes or no. Of course for the sake of SEO I wanted the date and name in my permalink, but apparently according to the post below the Search Engine Research Page will not rate the URL as it will be seen as old. So performance wise if a permalink setting it's stating with a number the wordpress system will not triggering a flag to create a rule enhancing the permalink and slowing down the URL. I haven sorted out what seems to be the problem that makes only the default…

Dance Central

Finally I got the Dance Central game and I got muscle ache now, as yesterday I spent nearly 4 hours on it.. was fun though :D

Retrospective 2011

Not that creative this year.

Dance Central 2

Some friends keep on telling me how fun is the Dance Central 2 game (for Xbox).. now I want to buy it, but I was surprised in an unpleasant way by the prices in store and online.. it's ridiculous to pay 34.99 for a game.. does it comes with anything at all at this price? NO. I was browsing randomly on Amazon right after the Christmas and I've seen it for 18.99 brand new.. I looked it up again now that I want it.. gone.. now at 24.99 is the lowest I could find.. still I think it's a rip off.. so no game for me yet..

Mobile websites not functional

I started to get really frustrated when I access a website from a phone or tablet as the website lacks the full functionality and most of the times I can't even go to where I intended as the time to get me there is longer then on regular websites and I completely lose interest to use the website.. why does it have to be set by default to mobi website? the main problem for me is when some websites don't even offer the possibility to switch to the full website in order to navigate to a certain page, article or product... I'm totally against mobi websites if there is no other option presented!
