Warping it up!

Warp’s MathTest 1.0

Friday, August 15th, 2008

I realised this little game quiz from my old website was not published on my new website, so I decided to link to it, it is from 2002 and little project I made because I suck at calculation, however I must admit I did not use it very much as I hoped for, perhaps it is time for me to train that biological calulator of mine again..

Enjoy or fear the magnificent math test!!

Warp’s MathTest
Test or train your own biological calculator.

The code will be open sourced if anyone shows interest in it, not that there is much use for that code anymore, it is using somewhat outdated but well proven JavaScript techniques, but feel free to peek – afterall programming is more fun than calcuating numbers…

Redesign ASAP

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

I just discovered that my blog has render errors on IE, and since I couldn’t quickly find the error I promised myself to finally get on with it and create a completely new design. This will also be a good opportunity for me to upgrade to WordPress 2.x. However I have more urging projects on my todo list, so it won’t happen as swift as I would have wanted.

So for all you oldschoool guys still using Internet Explorer, this would also be a good opportunity to upgrade you browsing life by getting hold of the latest Firefox browser and perhaps even the magnificient Thunderbird.

UPDATE: I fixed the render bug, by accident I had created a very long post-tag which killed the IE layout.

UPDATE 2 (March, 19 2006): The blog is now running under WordPress 2.x and MySQL 5.x, and everything seems to work fine.

CSS3: Multi-column Demo for Firefox

Friday, September 30th, 2005

Since the beginning of web design, there has always been a need to make multi-columned text pages. Sadly HTML and CSS 1+2 has rather weak support for this kind of wrapping techniques. Many workarounds have been created for this using JavaScript and server side pages. But the draft specification of “CSS3 module: Multi-column layout” promises to solve this “column problem” by adding a set of CSS properties.

Mozilla Firefox 1.5 beta adds preliminary support for these properties, so that developer can begin playing with it, not however that the reason the properties begin with “-moz-” is that the CSS3 Multi-column specification is still a draft, so therefore they should not be used for real web design yet, unless it can make a clean fallback when meeting non-mozilla 1.5+ clients.

I have created CSS3: Multi-column module demo for Firefox 1.5 beta – which shows some of the wonders of the new multi-column features, as well a some other CSS properties to create a nice flowing page with highly dynamic columns, and pretty stable compared to many of the older methods, but you need to use Mozilla Firefox 1.5 beta – which I would only recommend to Web Developers.

You can also check some screenshots of the demo, showing it’s ability to create as many columns as it can, while maintaining nice readability thru limited line-width.
