HTML for webredaktører

Webredaktører oplever det hver dag. Der er kopieret tekst ind på hjemmesiden, og uanset hvad du gør, bliver der ved med at dukke andre skrifttyper, størrelser, afstande, farver, m.m. op i teksten.

Funktionerne i CMS’ets editor til at rydde formatering hjælper ikke, og problemet består, uanset hvad du gør. Til sidst spørger du den nærmeste, der kan lidt kode. Personen klikker på kode-knappen i editoren, alt bliver volapyk, og på kort tid er problemet væk.

Det kan du også lære – og det er nemt! (more…)

JavaScript game – yay!


Yay! My first JavaScript game – sort of.

Basically I saw a video of Mary Rose Cook live coding Space Invaders in 30 minutes and wanted to get my fingers dirty.

I thought the programming was awesome and I wanted to get some practice by replicating it, so I did.

After that, I started improving on it. Mainly, I did levels of incrementing difficulty and menues.

Press “Z” to shoot and check out the video of the live coding – it’s badass: http://vimeo.com/105955605

Solved: Unable to format disk on dlink NAS

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.

Polyline/polygon tool for Google Maps

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.

Getting started with PHP

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. (more…)

Pointsystemet – En interaktiv grafik

[tweetmeme]Af: Martin Ove

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.

Tablet anno 2008


[tweetmeme]I shot this picture back in june 2008 and today I was reminded of it. The screen shows the N810 Internet Tablet with a bluetooth keyboard running Google Docs and saying “Who needs a laptop?” in danish. (Photo: Martin Ove Christensen)

Today I saw the Galaxy Tab on the website of a danish retailer. The fourth picture shows the Galaxy Tab with a physical keyboard, and it reminded me of a picture I took, when I got my N810 years ago.

The N810 was the third “Internet Tablet” from Nokia and also the last(yet), if you don’t count in the WiMax edition. Later on, the N900 took over and carried on with the Maemo OS.

The N810 features a 4.13″ 800×480 pixel display and qwerty keyboard. It’s a bit slow in todays standard, but still very usable.

Anyways, I just wanted to share this little moment of gadget evolution. Oh, check out the header-picture btw, it’s the same one.

Thanks for reading.
