Opera Mini

If you have a cell­phone that is Java-com­pat­i­ble (the major­i­ty are), try out Opera Mini. I’ve had it for a few weeks on an aver­age Sony Eric­s­son and it works very well. Brows­ing is also increased by an encrypt­ed sock­et con­nec­tion to Opera’s servers.

Soundboards — A World of Soundbites

I’ve fin­ished the first release of the new sound­boards site! I made a sim­i­lar project a few years ago, and thanks to var­i­ous links around the Inter­net, I have been get­ting a steady 1000 unique vis­i­tors per day.

Some of the ben­e­fits of this new ver­sion include the auto-resiz­ing of Adobe Flex (so much eas­i­er and reli­able than using Stage han­dlers in Flash), and some AJAX enhance­ments. Enjoy!

Some of the fea­tures aren’t 100%… if you find any prob­lems, please con­tact me.


The blog is back! After a long time of not hav­ing a place to pub­lish any inter­est­ing snip­pets or projects, I am slow­ly build­ing this new site. I’m not sure if I will keep this blog, but hey, it’s a per­son­al site so I can play around to my heart’s con­tent.
