I’ve just managed to get OSX 10.6.8 to work with mod_rewrite and .htaccess to be able to let WordPress rewrite it’s URLs. Here is what I did. I installed WordPress to my homefolder so I’ll access it using http://localhost/~ola/wordpress. Apache is configured to use a split config in OSX so to change the directives for the […]
Sometimes I use a webcam to capture images that I then use for time lapse videos. Other times I use my old Canon camera with CHDK and an interalometer script. I have been trying to find a simple and robust webcam tool for this for years but all packages are too complicated and anoying. I […]
Recently I wanted to set up multiple profiles in Google Chrome. One for my personal browsing and one for my work. This way I don’t need to sign in and out from my different google, twitter, flickr and facebook accounts. There is no GUI for this and it involves running some command line but it’s […]
Yesterday I needed to find a simple and robust solutions for recording a screencast. It turned out to be not as easy as I thought. To get a similar workflow as with my other video editing I wanted it to work like this: Record a 1280 x 720 section from my screen to a high […]
At work we always have a pretty hefty development environment. At home I’ve never had any dedicated environment for my web development. It’s both a relief and something I miss. Today I’ll try to set up a WordPress development environment that’s a bit more robust than my old setup where I download the file I […]

I’ve just gone trough some hoops to import a time lapse video made in Avidemux into my standard DV project in Sony Vegas. My first issue was to find a suitable video format and the second to get the size of the time lapse video to match the size of the DV format. I’ll go […]
I wanted to remove the hidden files attributes and delete some types of files so I created the following bat-file. attrib -R -A -S -H D:Music* /S /D del /S /P D:Music*AlbumArtSmall.jpg D:Music*desktop.ini (Don’t ask me why /S /D should be last on the line when using attrib and first when using del, but the […]
I while ago I introduced a friend to Firefox. I didn’t want to push it but just show it and I hoped it would stick. After some weeks I asked if she liked it and she said it was nice but that she missed the tabs that IE had. I was amazed… Firefox were years […]
Today I tried the Gimp plugin Save for Web. You can select different file formats, scale and crop images. All with preview. It’s awesome!
Update: I used FFmpeg for some conversions but I just found out Avidemux and it seems promising! Trying it right away! Every once in a while I get my hands on a video file that I can’t play. Today when I wanted to watch a bouldering movie it failed. Not sure why. Maybe becuase my […]
If you want the Gimp toolbars to behave like normal windows it’s easy to change. Just select Edit / Preferences / Window Managment and change Hint for the toolbox and Hint for the other windows to Normal window.
I have been thinking about creating an easy solution to backup some files from different computers to thumb drives. I wanted a solution that was portable (so I could run it from the thumb drive) and easy to configure (maximum update one path to copy from and one to copy to). I decided to give […]
I have been using a custom build CMS that’s really basic for a tiny site for some years. It has around 200 posts so it’s not a huge site but too much too migrate to a new host by hand. I have been using WordPress for some other sites and I really like it so […]
I usually use Rsync for my incremental backups but since I moved to Vista it’s a bit of pain to get it working. I tried to install it using both Cygwin and DeltaCopy but couldn’t get it to copy international chars (i.e. åäö) via either Samba or SSH. So I looked into a tool called […]
