company lunch scribble round 1 21. January 2015

Filed under: images — ëRiC @ 19:32

Pretty humble update. But an update nonetheless! :]

As I hardly find time to take part in a digital speed painting round that a couple friends of mine are doing almost every week at a late evening I found it very accommodating that some co-workers were organising a lunch time analog scetching group now! That doesn’t exclude anything from each other but it’s a good alternative.

For starters we did a classic: The skull! And some random shapes. I think I have to improve on proportions! … and taking pictures apparently.

song of the day: The Cinematic Orchestra – All That You Give 24. September 2014

Filed under: music,song of the day,video — ëRiC @ 20:33

This made my day: The good old Cinematic Orchestra.

Somehow I always though that “Slip Into Something More Comfortable” (sadly not on YouTube) is by them.. But it’s obviously “Kinobe” … Hmm ok then this must be another song… hmmm…

Btw: I just also added this to my Secret Agent Playlist on YouYube.
Secret Agent is a simply amazing internet radio channel on the also awesome Soma FM station. Strongly recommended!

Chrom vs. Firefox 20. February 2013

Filed under: bla — ëRiC @ 15:28

Its just that way: I’m a long term Firefox fan boy.
But there has always been reason for that! Its not like I hate Chrome or google. Quite the opposite! I’d love to use Chrome. But it turns out over and over again that Firefox is just more awesome… I mean.. For my use case!

Okay, Here is my 1 on 1. I’ll amend it when I find new stuff:

vimeo bigger video 7. April 2011

Filed under: dev,greasemonkey,video — ëRiC @ 21:18

A little more JavaScripting.. If you go to vimeo. e.g. like this:

you might recognize that the video is quite small and you cannot do something about it (besides fullscreen, and waiting 3,5h for the flash-Esc-fullscreen message to disappear). Now you can!


btw: is a little slow these days. Here is a backup: vimeo_bigger_video.user.js

Nochn kleines bißchen mehr JavaScripterei.. Wenn du mal zu vimeo gehst. So z.B.:

dann müsst du feststellen, dass das Video relativ klein ist und man daran nix ändern kann (ausser Vollbild natürlich und gefühlte 3,5h auf das Ausblenden der flash-Escape-Meldung warten). Kann man jetzt!


btw: is gerade ganz schön lahm manchmal. Hier isn backup bei mir: vimeo_bigger_video.user.js Fotostrecke Anpassen 2. February 2011

Filed under: bla — ëRiC @ 23:38

Der Herr * hatte mal nen schönes Greasemonkey-Script für die Spiegel Online Fotostrecke geschrieben.: Spiegel Online Fotostrecke Anpassen. Das nimmt diese doofe Übersichtsseite (z.B.) aus der Schleife und man kann die Fotos einfach durchklicken und kommt am Anfang wieder an ohne zu denken: ÄHH! WASn JETZT los? SPAM?

Leider geht das nich mehr. Wurde zwar im September erst geupdatet aber offensichtlich wurde da ne Menge auf im Hintergrund umgestellt. Na ich hab mich ma beigemacht das wieder geradezubiegen und habs tatsächlich fast neu geschrieben: Fotostrecke Anpassen

Noch bin ich nen Javascript-n00b. Also der Code sieht vielleicht etwas unelegant aus. Zb. hab ichs nicht auf die Reihe bekommen die “1 VON 15″ Zeichenkette einfach zu spalten weil dort statt normalen ” “-Freizeichen “ ” eingebaut wurde… Aber wie auch immer: Jetzt gehts!

Update: Ich musste nochma ran. Die ham nochmehr von diesen dümmlichen “ ” eingebaut… backup hier: spiegel_online_fotostrec.user.js

returnNewNodes(rnn) 26. January 2011

Filed under: dev,maya — ëRiC @ 16:28

For all the maya scripting grandpas: For when you import files and want to know whats new: There is actually a returnNewNodes-flag at the file command! In former times (<v9) you had to code that all by yourself.. So there definetely wasn’t everything better! There^ you got it!

I just chatted about that with Nathan:

13:02: but when importing.. yea a success statement would be nice
13:02: or an array of imported objects!
13:03: THAT would be good
13:03: now that would be very good!
13:03: :)
13:03: :D
13:03: I had to write a function to do that
13:03: yea me too!

That was actually about me finding a candidate for more Maya stupidness: In the file command docs at import they write that it returns the filename. That is you put something into it and it gives you back the same… bollocks.

(it fails somehow as there are lots of other commands that do it similar. But here it doesn’t even work! And there is no way of importing without a given filename. Contrary to creating a control for instance.)
