I reported some days ago that this page is not being generated dynamically online anymore. It is just static HTML!
I am generating all code offline. But since I love features like "comments", I decided to use a third party service for that. I registered an account at Disqus because it provides the most simple user interface. I hope you will accept and use this feature even though data is being stored on external servers not managed by me. Maybe I will develop an comment option via a cgi-bin directory in the future but at first I will stay at Disqus...
The server is now running lighttpd. thttpd doesn't provided enough features. Lighttpd seems to be a good choice for my requirements. It is a very small, fast and easy to configure webserver with a lot of features.
I found this in the ./images directory of hanez.org today and thought it must be online again... ;)
I am restructuring this site and the server it is running on at the moment. I moved the site to a new server today. No script languages, database servers etc. anymore! Everything is being generated offline to static HTML since some days!
This website is just a mirror off what I am running on my local system. No backups of the server needed anymore, jehaaa!
The webserver underneath this website is thttpd at the moment but it is just an experiment. I am leaving the era of dynamic webpages so I don't have any need for software like Apache anymore. thttpd is great but I am missing some features. I will give lighttpd a try in the next days.
The RSS and Atom feed has been moved. Update your readers! Maybe they will come back to the old place later but at the moment I don't care.. The problem is, that I could not configure thttpd to read index.rss files like reading index.html automatically in a directory context. It is not a big problem but some more features would be great.
I will publish the state of the hanez.org server here and will then explain how and why the final solution looks like it is... ;)
I build a new Arduino device this weekend. I was ill and had much time chilling at home and hacked this:
It is a TA01-11 LED matrix from Kingbright. It was a little bit tricky to figure out how it works because it was the first matrix I played with but at the end everything worked fine... ;) Thanks to Rafael for this great hacking session!
You could find more information and the code on my Arduino TA07-11 5x7 Dot Matrix Display page. Have fun!
I got my new toy some minutes ago. A Netduino!
Netduino is an open source electronics platform using the .NET Micro Framework. The idea is taken from the Arduino platform but the difference is, that the Netduino is being programmed in .NET and it has a much more powerful 32-bit microcontroller onboard. It is an AT91SAM7X512 with the following specs:
- Atmel 32-bit microcontroller
- Speed: 48MHz, ARM7
- Code Storage: 128 KB
- RAM: 60 KB
Hopefully I could develop with the Mono project for it but at first I will do my work in a Microsoft based environment. Sounds contradictory? Yes, it is... but I want to give it a try... ;)
I am a little bit it ill at the moment but it will be a funny weekend when playing with this nice piece of hardware.
