This post is in danish, since nobody off shore is likely to bring me anything for my birthday :) But foreign viewers, feel free to skip ahead to movies I want to see in the near future :) Nå, men det jeg ønsker mig i år er: Musik Anorexia Nervosa – New Obscurian Order (Vinyl) &hellip Continue reading »

Movies I want to see

Though this is kind of a personal agenda for me, I thought I’d share it with everybody in order to 1) inform the world about my intentions of watching these movies and to 2) get your approval / suggestions on what other movies might fall in my taste. I will try to review most of &hellip Continue reading »

Game Block: One step closer

…continued from Touch game for the offspring. I had a naive thought that this would basically be the final rig, but then got to think  that I might want to add a power switch and a speaker / buzzer of sorts. But other than that I want everything to work by touch interaction. I’ve already &hellip Continue reading »

Best pancakes EVER!

Yes, you heard me. BEST – PANCAKES – EVER! I found a recipe that drastically differs from the ones I’d tried thus far, and decided to give it a chance. Since the original recipe was for a traditional main course pancake, I instantly spiced it up with a little spice and sweetener in order to &hellip Continue reading »

Local Stores VS. The World!

I am currently power shopping electronic components for various planned (and indeed unplanned) projects. And one of the things I quickly realized is that it does matter from where you buy your stuff. Like with everything else there is a price tag to consider, but the little things should not be ignored; such as expedition &hellip Continue reading »

HAL9K – HackerSpace in Aalborg

Just a quick heads up in case anyone are following my blog and are interested in a hacker-/maker-/creative-space in Aalborg, Denmark. (Yes, this is copypasta from Lars’ blog) I have recently joined as a paying member in order to help finance a move to more permanent facilities.

Touch game for the offspring

I thought about making a simple (bulky) touch game device for my daughter comprising an Arduino board, an LCD display and a replacement touch panel for a Nintendo DS. Sounds simple enough, but given that I am a complete electronics (and in any practical sense; a C++) novice, I believe it will be somewhat challenging &hellip Continue reading »

Alternating directions

Just a quick thought :) If you want to alternate between -1 and 1 in a for-loop, say for the purpose of changing direction or something similar, and you don’t want to add an extra variable to manually alternate in each run-through, this works just fine: for (int i=0; i < something; i++){ dir = &hellip Continue reading »

Randomly generated wallpaper on login

I got the idea from my “new” s10 because I wanted to keep the desktop clean, simple but with a touch of personality. For this reason I thought it would be cool with a stylish wallpaper and a simple picture frame on it showing a new picture chosen at random from a defined photo folder. &hellip Continue reading »

Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 s10

Yesterday I got my 2nd hand Lenovo s10 (1st gen) and immediately started downloading the Ubuntu Netbook Edition. I WAS going to say; “the only thing Internet Explorer is good for” but unfortunately the minor detail that IE is the current ass kicker numero uno in graphics intensive HTML5 execution pretty much puts a sock &hellip Continue reading »
