Here’s the deal: I wanted to extend the standard configuration on my dlink DNS-320L by adding a second disk to form a RAID1.

The biggest problem was to format the new disk. No matter what I did, the button saying “Set RAID and re-format” in the dlink management software was greyed out.

I tried shutting down the NAS, insert the new disk in slot 1, no avail. Shutting down, inserting in slot 2, no avail. I did this numerous times. Performed S.M.A.R.T checks, scanned the disk again and again. Nothing worked.

You know what did? Using Internet Explorer!

Yup, apparently the dlink software doesn’t like Chrome.

So, there you have it. I hope you encounter this post in a search someday and it saves you a few hours.

Fordrevet på ubestemt tid

Situationen omkring atomkraftværket Fukushima 1 er stadig meget kritisk, og den øgede stråling har betydet, at mange indbyggere i området er blevet evakueret.

Minderne fra Tjernobyl trænger sig på, for der er endnu ingen, der ved, hvornår området igen er sikkert at bo i.

Klik på evakueringszonerne for at læse nærmere om, hvad det betyder at bo inden for henholdvis 20 og 30 km fra atomkraftværket.

78.000 uden hjem og tidshorisont

Omkring 78.000 japanere, som boede inden for 20 km af Fukushima 1-værket, er blevet evakueret.

Det er endnu uvist, hvornår de igen kan komme tilbage til deres hjem, men de bliver ikke i løbet af de første dage eller uger, forklarer de japanske myndigheder.

62.000 påvirket

Der bor 62.000 japanere mellem 20 og 30 km fra atomkraftværket. De er blevet opfordret til at forlade området af de japanske myndigheder. Forlader de ikke området, bør de holde sig indendøre.

Evakueringszonen omkring Tjernobylværket var også 30 km. Inden for den grænse er der – 25 år efter – stadig næsten mennesketomt.


Using circles and events in Google Maps – the nerdy part

Here’s a little something I did after reading about the contaminated areas around the Fukushima Dai-ichi Power Plant. The danish newspaper Information has a piece here, CNN got a piece here.

Orkanen Katrina ramte USA og gjorde især skade på byen New Orleans.

Også de omkringliggende områder blev ramt, som f.eks. byen Mobile i staten Alabama.

The text bubble is often not the best way to show of information in Google Maps. This is a custom layout which uses the user events of Google Maps the show the relevant information. Very buggy and only a crude sketch for now.

By: Martin Ove Christensen

Google Maps is very widely used, and with good reason. It’s very easy to create maps, and you can customize the information shown in the text bubbles by embedding images and so on.

One thing I hate, though, is getting pushed around a map, which is to small to display all the information, that the publisher wants to show. Here’s one example, and it’s even a mild one from the danish tv-station, TV2: Verdens dyreste naturkatastrofer(Worlds most expensive natural disasters)

This small tool aids you in getting the coordinates for your polyline or polygon
This small tool aids you in getting the coordinates for your polyline or polygon.

By: Martin Ove

Hi all.

I made a little tool, which can make the process of finding coordinates for polygons and polylines in Google Maps a lot easier and intuitive.

It lets you draw a line with multiple points by just clicking on the map. When you’re done, you just copy-paste the coordinates for further use.

Your local server with PHP after just a few minutes.EasyPHP gets you up and running in just a few minutes.

By: Martin Ove

PHP plays a huge role in the internet today, but unlike JavaScript, HTML and the likes, you can’t just try it out by typing a few commands into a text file and opening it with your browser.

PHP has to be installed on a server, a fact that for a long time has kept me from learning the language. Luckily, I discovered EasyPHP, which does all the work for you in a few minutes. Continue reading »

Udlændingeaftalen med tilhørende pointsystem faldt på plads onsdag d.17 november, og det gav mig en idé til en interaktiv grafik, man kunne lave i den forbindelse.

Jeg har indsat en rå udgave nedenunder, og i første omgang er du meget velkommen til at se, om du kan samle nok point sammen. Senere skal jeg nok få skrevet om koden bagved. Det bliver engang i næste uge.

Jeg vil gøre opmærksom på, at indlægget her ikke handler om politik, overhovedet. Det handler om at bruge nettets muligheder, når det kommer til dynamiske hjemmesider. Så skulle det være på plads.

Kommentarer og spørgsmål er hjertelig velkomne.

Siden vises i øvrigt bedst i Firefox.

Opdatering 18. nov. 2010 kl. 19:53: Jeg er ikke den eneste, som har udgivet en pointberegner. TV2 har også en pointberegner, det er dog et Excel-ark, man skal downloade.

If you have no idea on how to start scraping the web with Python, then read on. The first small step is simpler than I thought it would be.

By: Martin Ove

This post will teach you how to fetch the HTML of a website using Python in windows. This is as far as I have gotten at this time, and even though it isn’t really useful yet, I guess it’s the first step towards webscraping with Python.

First of all you need to get Python on your computer. Continue reading »
