Optics simulation in Flash – lens formula

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

I just created a flash simulation of what happens when you move an object in front of a convergent lens. When the object is moved back and forth its image will react to the movement. It all had to happen with Actionscript 2 too. Check the result here.... Read More

The perceived decline of the US

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

Seems like it’s getting chic to rant about the decline of the US among US intellectuals, it’s all very entertaining with valid points here and there but it doesn’t make it the truth of our times, far from it. I’m not gonna even try figuring out why otherwise smart people are paranoid and pander half truths or view the “problem” only from negative angles, recent events must’ve turned them emotional, they can’t think straight, as good an explanation of their behavior as any other, apart from herd psychology....

WAMP and XAMPP problems and solutions in Vista

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

Damn this is strange, Apache suddenly just died on me after Vista installed some updates, the gauge in both wamp and xampp shows it as running but accessing localhost results in a no no. No matter how I tried to make things work, deactivating the firewall, UAC and a slew of other actions I was about to give up when I tried 127.0.0.1 without expecting it to work at all, but it did....

Black Reuben Gtk / Metacity theme

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

I’ve been a great fan of the Reuben theme, originally by akka, in fact it is the only theme I’ve ever used on Linux. The other day I needed some change though, I’m also a sucker for dark themes, I hate the glare of white backgrounds, luckily Reuben is somewhat beige which takes the edge off the worst.... Read More

TNX and how to hide PR 0 pages

Friday, September 5th, 2008

At the moment my best money maker by far is TNX. Web devs are notorious for not clicking ads, the money I’m making from CPC is ridiculous, no one is clicking.


It was only when I started with TLA that I started seeing some money in my PayPal account, pitiful as the sums are they are still more than I make from for instance Ad-sense by far.... Read More
