This blog is me talking about my stuff, what I do and from time to time, in order to improve the state of the internet and promote better content and google hits for other people, I will also post solutions to various other problems I’ve found.


Foobar sorting
13 May 2009

Since some time I’ve been sorting my music collection. Going though my hard-drives and Cd’s finding all music-files and moving them to a common place and with the help of foobar2000 place them in a sane directory-structure and keep them there. Within foobar I sort the artists on the following script. This makes sure that The (International) Noise Conspiracy is among the other artist that begins with I. $replace($replace($replace($stripprefix(%artist%),’|’,),'[‘,),'(‘,) That little script keeps things nice and tidy within foobar, but to sort I use these two massive scripts:

Operating system not found

I had a nightmare a few nights ago. In the dream I apparently had formated my computer without doing a backup of my important data. Luckily it was only a dream…

Fear the consoles
12 February 2009

I recently downloaded the f.e.a.r 2 demo and I must say that I am disappointed.

Unlike most installations it doesn’t force you to press 20 buttons to install it. Only 2, ” install now”, and “close”. It actually felt refreshing. It still manages to mention silverlight 4 times though without telling you what it does.

Hello, I am Gustav
25 January 2009

.. and I’m a game programmer. My best game so far would probably be lolball. A game where you move through levels as fast as possible to get a better score, all while doing as many combos as possible. Did I mention particle effects and slow-motion? Currently however I’m working on a remake of tetris so I can get a stable codebase for my next progress.

Until next time…

First post
30 December 2008

As the current year is slowly coming to a close, I figured that it would be smart to make a few promises. The first would be to actually add a new post once in a while, say every week, instead of once a year. So who am I…? Stay tuned for my next update
