CigTrack defibrilated

So like the other cool kids apps, I thought my pet project deserved a proper landing page. It’s been a while since I’ve actually had time for this project, but it was just too soon to entirely drop it.

The new landing page is built with bootstrap and animatescroll, the picture is one of mine that I took ages ago. I had to tweak the grid system a little to make it work as I imagined, but it wasn’t an obstacle.

Now live on cigtrack.info.

I’m happy with it, since it appeals much more to people instead of developers and communicates the thoughts behind the project. In hindsight I should have done this as the first step of the entire process ;)

barricades-on-fire

It’s Your Job to Blow up the Barricades Too!

When taking on a job, a project or simply pursuing a goal, you will not face perfect circumstances. Never. That’s why your job includes removing or overcoming barriers and barricades that lay┬áin your way. These things don’t come with the job description or the original demand and it’s up to you to be creative and find a way.

Also, nobody asks if you put the obstacles there yourself, if your competitors or the big bad world did. If you want to make something happen, you better figure out the rules and try to play by them.

Flickr Galleries: There was a problem adding this photo to the gallery

I’ve never used flickr much, but recently I started playing around with its API. I’m using galleries, sort of a collection of photos to keep track of which photos I want to list with my site and I kept running into an error message as the following:

There was a problem adding this photo to the gallery

The solution is quite simple: Create a new gallery. Your old one is full. Continue reading

anything-gt-nothing

Anything > Nothing

I’m not always doing great. In fact, I often fail at things. I sometimes fail at meeting deadlines, more often in my studies than on my jobs though.

We can’t always give a 100% at everything and we have to distribute our energies in some way so we don’t burn ourselves out. Some always tell me I shouldn’t attempt to accomplish as much in the first place, which I should probably get better at. Continue reading

Screencasting for Video Tutorials on Linux with recordMyDesktop

Obviously screencasting falls into my domain of things to do, because it’s publishing digital media and also I’m currently recording some Linux tutorials of how to get some games working for Unganked. Secondly I’m negotiating to have a video course published, which I’ll mainly record on Linux, because the topic is partly command line specific. So I needed a way to record what ever is going on on my desktop, in full HD, with flawless audio and lots of frames per second. A program that is advertised for all this is recordMyDesktop.
