Now go watch news feeds if you don't do it already!

Roland Emmerich will be making a movie of Asimov's Foundation stories. It can't we worse than the really really horrible, bad, boring, stupid and utter crap that 10,000_BC_(film) was.

Roland Emmerich is known for Stargate, Universal Soldier, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow and so on.

Got a new old camera now. It seems to be working OK, but I have some strange problems getting my computer to accept it though.

EU-debate: Extending copyright...

Some bandits are trying to steal your freedom, your money and they do it in a quite a stupid way that hurts everyone. The idea is to give the richest and dead artist more money and all active artists less access to materials to build on. So basically they steal your right to free material and then they make it harder for the ones who create material.

Make sure that MEPs who vote for this don't get any votes in the election between 4 and 7 June 2009!

Blärgh!

Hangover and my camera got broken yesterday. The lens is stuck and there seems to be no tricks that work to get it moving again. <img:stuff/mood9-gif.gif>

I've implemented keyword ads on exported wiki-pages (you'll only see them on the exported version of wiki-pages). I have no idea how annoying or helpful it will be, and it will take about 24 hours before it starts to work.

If anyone wants to try it on your site, send me your business email and I'll send you an invitation, and I might get some bonus.

Stargate


Seems like they "leaked" the next episode of Stargate Atlantis. I just watched Stargate.Atlantis.S05E19.Vegas.PreAir.avi and can clearly see why it was leaked. My jaw dropped and I don't know if I can find it.

It's a really good episode even if you spend most of it thinking "WTF?!?" and don't get anything. I'm quite sure they leaked this to get the buzz, so here it is, and thank you for the leak! <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif>

Merry Yule and stuff to everyone!

I'm too lazy to make any greetings this year. Maybe something for the new year instead.

So you want to know how the new "Upload image" button at textareas work? No? Then read something else then! <img:stuff/zabuN-gif.gif>

Javascript isn't allowed to access the files on your computer, not even the ones that you have selected as files to upload! So therefore I have to use an invisible iframe and then use a normal file-upload to that. Eventually the upload is done, and then in the invisible iframe some javascript is returned and that javascript-code calls the javascript-code on the visible page and writes the code and the text that it uploaded. Thanks to http://www.ajaxf1.com/tutorial/ajax-file-upload-tutorial.html for that!

Then it's of course not that simple. The form is created by a Pike-generated javascript-code, but thanks to the iframe the form didn't have to be javascript itself, so then it became less confusing. Then I should have learnt to not use innerHTML instead of value when dealing with textareas, and not to put forms inside of forms. I want to move the Upload Image buttons in the wiki, but moving that with CSS from outside of the first form-tag into it visually demands some heavy thinking.

Wisdoms of life


It seems like the more successful something is, the more complains about it there are. Just a few example of the things people complain the most about in different sectors: MySQL and Oracle (Database engines with all sort of problems), Dell, the iPhone (Locked down to a brick and not open), Facebook's new design (About as much as Elftown's new update in complains and way more in privacy stuff constantly), Window's at its peak, and so on.

I mean: Who is complaining about Blue-Ray disks, George W Bush, Vista, PostgreSQL, MySpace or the violence in the old fairy-tales nowadays? OK, people do complain about Vista a lot but it's also giving Microsoft a great revenue despite being worse than XP, so maybe it's a success.

The conclusion is that I should from now on measure my success in how many complains I get!

I'm not getting anything done! I don't know where to start... And I'm about to get a cold. I hope I can avoid that. Now I've slept all day (and all night before that) so at least I'm very rested.

Then it's the stuff with yule and traveling to my parents. I should get some presents except books... I'm thinking about those mugs with printed images on them that I saw in the Elftown mall, but they got mugs before before and father only uses cups. I'm quite out of money so it has to be something cheap and it isn't like my parents actually need something.
