New Table Editor

April 10th, 2013

fbAfter four years of thinking, I’ve finally pulled myself together and created a new version of the Latex Table Editor. The editor is, quite surprisingly, by far the most visited page on truben.no so I’ve been eager to create a better one.

Since it works with a few new formats (HTML, CSV, plain text) i’ve rebranded it Table Editor. How creative.

The new table editor is built on a solid foundation of top noch javascript libraries, most importantly Knockout. The previous version was very difficult to modify since it only used the DOM as its data model. My plan is that this new start will make it easy to extend the editor’s functionality, and that the editor will be updated more frequently.

Hope you like it!

PS: The old version is still available at truben.no/latex/table/old.

Sigmundvik.comThe amazing bass player Sigmund Vik have just released his new website located at sigmundvik.com. It’s developed and designed by me (surprise!). I’ve used jQuery, pushstate(), AJAX, Soundmanager2, CSS gradients and a lot of other cool technologies to build the page. Enjoy!

D-Box 2.3

May 12th, 2011

D-Box 2.3 was released 5 days ago. It’s a quite minor update, but it fixes a few annoying behaviors, and should be a bit snappier than version 2.2.

Check out this page if you want to know what’s happened since the last release.

Tomcat and JSTL

May 10th, 2011

For some strange reason, I went through an awful lot of trouble to find the correct JSTL-jar files for my Tomcat installation. The truth is that it’s dead simple to figure out.

Just navigate to apache-tomcat-{version}/webapps/examples/WEB-INF/lib and copy the two jar-files! Hope this can be of help for someone!

Updated Latex Table Editor

March 1st, 2011

Because of the surprisingly big success of my latex table editor, I decided to update it with some nifty new features. The biggest improvement is that it’s now possible to rearrange the rows in the table. Simply drag and drop, using the handles to the left of the rows. I’ve also added a drop down box to set the text alignment in the columns, and updated it with a brand new interface. I hope you’ll find the new version better than the old one, but if you don’t please drop me a line and explain why.

Give it a go!

Brand new knot.no

February 18th, 2011

Yesterday evening, KNOT, a local workshop and gallery, launched their brand new webpage.

The webpage is based on a design by Higren, and developed by me. The page takes advantage of the superb JavaScript framework jQuery and some brand new HTML5 technologies (CSS transformation, form validation, etc). A jQuery plugin called QuickSand is used to display and rearrange the store items (try to search).

Emulators in JavaScript!

February 14th, 2010

I have in the recent past been made aware that it’s actually possible to create emulators in pure JavaScript. Along with the “new” canvas-tag, it turns out that the newest and fastest web browsers actually manages to emulate old game-consoles in an impressive manner. Some even with sound!

Here’s a list of some emulators created in JavaScript:

  • JSGB – Nintendo GameBoy emulator
  • JSNES – Ninetendo 8bit emulator
  • JSC64 – Commodore 64 emulator
  • JSSpeccy – Sinclair ZX Spectrum
  • jslinux – Linux
  • N64js – Nintendo 64

All the emulators requires a fast Javascript engine, like the ones in for example Apple Safari and Google Chrome and Firefox.

Brand new Latex Tools page

January 26th, 2010

Latex ToolsFor about six months ago I made a JavaScript program that could help me to produce Bibtex entries. It has now been on truben.no for a while, and I have certainly benefited from it!

Two days ago I started to argue with Latex again, and this time it was because of how latex markup tables. Bacause of this I’ve created yet another javascript program that aims to help users with this issue. Check it out!

Stay away from this game!

January 21st, 2010

I can honestly say that I very rarely play “Flash” games on the web. I typically think they’re too simple, and you’re rarely left with the feeling to have accomplished anything afterwards. This game is no exception. The problem with that is that it has managed to lure me to play it over and over again. 316 times to be exact.

I lost two hours of my life. If you don|t want to suffer the same fate as me, I advise you to stay away. Can you do it? Not? Thought so!

Here’s what I accomplished:

How to run Windows 3.1x in Dosbox using D-Box

January 6th, 2010

Windows 3.11Today I tried to run good ol’ Windows 3.1x using D-Box. I was impressed by how easy it was to get it running! So please feel free to follow along this set by step instructions!

  1. Get D-Box and Windows 3.1x.
  2. If you have the diskettes for Windows, copy all the files to a directory on your hard drive. If you’ve downloaded a ISO file, extract the files to a directory on your hard drive (MacOS and most Linux distros have built-in support for ISO, just double-click on the icon, and drag the contents into a folder on you hard drive. Windows users can use WinRAR.)
  3. Start D-Box, and drag the file Setup.exe from the Windows directory to D-Box’ application list. Click the OK button a few times.
  4. Select the newly created item in the application list in D-Box with your mouse, and right click on it to get a pop up menu. From this menu click on “Edit Game”. In the new window, drag the slider under “How fast would you like the computer” as far right as it gets. Click OK.
  5. Double click on the Windows application item in D-Box’ application list. Follow the setup’s installation steps. The defaults are good. Do not try to change the screen resolution. Leave it at VGA. Don’t bother with the network settings either.
  6. When the installation is finished close the Dosbox window and return to D-Box. Once again, get the Edit game window (same procedure as in step 4), and change the text in the field Executable to:
    WINDOWS\WIN.COM

    and click OK.

    The "Edit Game" window should look similar to this.

  7. Now you may use Windows 3.1x on your new super computer, and play, not only DOS games, but also 16bit Windows games! To add a new Windows game, just copy the files to the folder where you left the Windows 3.1x installation files.Ah, Solitare!

Update: Do you want sound or better graphics?
