Examples of text widths in different languages

UI Designers, SHOULD make sure their layouts fit with most languages. But they rarely do! πŸ˜‰

Don’t forget to consider the size of text in various languages when you design a international user interface.

WordCamp Denmark

Saturday, May 15th, 2010

I am currently attending WordCamp Denmark in Copenhagen, so it’s only fitting that I actually update my main blog again πŸ˜‰

I have been busy in the WordPress sphere doing loads of blogs and sites for friends and customers. As well as playing around with my community site DroidBuilders.net.

Lately I have been translating BuddyPress into danish and here at WordCamp I have found at least two other people doing the same!! So we are obviously going to get together and merge the translation project into one. – Great!! (and stay tuned!)

I am also in the early start of making a few plugins, and I can’t wait to start using and releasing beta versions on this blog.

So all in all; fear not, I am still a WordPress fanatic! See you soon!

Are we living in a hologram?

Monday, January 26th, 2009

Scary news everybody, our universe might be a 2D hologram.. Twist your minds around that!

… For many months, the GEO600 team-members had been scratching their heads over inexplicable noise that is plaguing their giant detector. Then, out of the blue, a researcher approached them with an explanation. In fact, he had even predicted the noise before he knew they were detecting it. According to Craig Hogan, a physicist at the Fermilab particle physics lab in Batavia, Illinois, GEO600 has stumbled upon the fundamental limit of space-time – the point where space-time stops behaving like the smooth continuum Einstein described and instead dissolves into “grains”, just as a newspaper photograph dissolves into dots as you zoom in. “It looks like GEO600 is being buffeted by the microscopic quantum convulsions of space-time,” says Hogan.

If this doesn’t blow your socks off, then Hogan, who has just been appointed director of Fermilab’s Center for Particle Astrophysics, has an even bigger shock in store: “If the GEO600 result is what I suspect it is, then we are all living in a giant cosmic hologram.” …
