I admit it, i'm not a good blogger. If i have any time over, i spend it doing other things than posting here.
Since my last post i've been very busy! Apart from working at Opera, working on some hobby projects, moving, getting married (yay!) and many other things, i've been creating a little game
It was a long time since i was working on a game, so this project have been really fun! It all started about 5 weeks ago when i bought a android smart phone and couldn't resist doing *something* for it. Unfortunately this coincided with a worsening pain in neck and shoulders, frequently causing headaches too (many years working at a computer in a bad posture is not good for you).
Lots of exercise combined with more effective (and less) "computer time" actually is a great combination
The game, "Spaghetti and Marshmallows" is a build simulation game of the real thing (building towers and other things with uncooked spaghetti and marshmallows). It's in beta testing and is soon (if all goes well) going to be released.
Some screenshots are in the photo album: Spaghetti and Marshmallows (game)

I've noticed the LiquoricePlayer web page
looks quite broken in IE7/IE8
I thought i fixed it a couple of days ago, but then i touched something and it's suddenly all ruined again. Sigh! It's always the same nightmare with that browser. It works perfect in all other browsers.. Except for RGBA support missing in Opera 9.50 (no dark box in the menu), and text-shadow support missing in Firefox (no glow around hovered links). WinGogi has both though
The WebUI in LiquoricePlayer isn't working with IE either. I gave that up almost immediately because i didn't have time to fix it. It works fine with Opera, Firefox and Safari though!

I thought i should present a hobby project that has just been released in version 1.0 beta!
It is a music player/jukebox, controlled through a web interface directly from within your web browser. It integrates in the Opera web browser using both widgets and panel. So it's easy to control it without ever leaving the browser (or any other maximized application). Just keep the widget on-top, or the panel open
It is small, fast, and handles huge media libraries.
It's called LiquoricePlayer! (Why do i always end up using the "temporary" working name which is always edible stuff for my projects?
This project has kept me busy when i've had time over for the last 2 years. Now that i've got it out, i will try to blog a little more frequently than once per year
You can read more about it and download it here

It's spring time! And this is my first blog post!
Can it be better than that?
I think i'll use this blog to write about technical things, related to software developement and things like that.
I will also write about projects i'm working on. I do lots of software developement as a hobby, apart from my full-time job at Opera Software.
Most of my projects haven't been released yet (or even talked or written about) outside the small beta-testing group. And some are still only plans or ideas. But until i have something better to write about, i'll write about sand.
That's right! Sand!
Virtual of course! Your artificial playground
MarmaladeCvs is one of my released projects.
It is a cvs client. You may not know what a cvs client is, but that doesn't matter. That's not what this blog post is about.
I built in a small easter-egg, in which you can pour virtual sand in different colours.
You can paint bowls, funnels, or anything you like, pour sand over it, make holes in them or flip the entire surface upside down.
There is no goal, except having a few minutes of fun when you wait for something. Or when you just want to take a short break and do something relaxing.Try it out!
It's freeware and can be downloaded on my project webpage here
When you have started the application from the installation folder, just click the icon that looks like:
That's all for now.
