Plățile ING. Cum câștigă ING din dubla conversie valutară

Se dă următorul caz: Eu, client al ING cu cont în RON, mă duc în afară țării la un comerciant. Doresc să plătesc cu cardul. Cumpăr un produs de 100€. Cursul zilei BNR, să zicem, este 4.5 Lei. Îmi fac un calcul în cap, ajung la suma teoretică de 450 Lei care mi-ar trebui debitată

Moth on Pineapple

I was snacking away on some pineapple, and this moth decided to land on my hand. I let it roam around and I noticed it was sampling my fingers with its proboscis (ie: trump, or it’s tongue). I realised it was looking for something sweet so I gave it a slice of pineapple. The little

Stics 0.9.4.0: New Features!

Was keeping myself busy today, so I made some changes to Stics: Moved text processing from ffmpeg to imagemagick. This should speed up encoding a bit. This also makes way for a new feature I’m doing soon! Added a transparency option to Spectrowave. The black bar was looking quite bad but I couldn’t think of

Disable WP Video Locker (youtubeblocker) behaviour

If you ever seen a website that asks for a “Share” on Facebook before you are allowed to view a video, try this userscript: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/399846. This disables the annoying “WPVideoLock” WordPress plugin. Update: Didn’t notice that websites like voceazilei.ro changed their data attribute; so with the ideas of Victor Badoiu I updated it to 0.3,

ImageLightbox.js WordPress Plugin

A few days ago I found Osvaldas Valutis’ awesome ImageLightbox.js on WebAppers.com and I just knew I had to have it on my recently “refurnished” little blog. I didn’t really had to make it into a plugin for WordPress, but oh well, I got carried away!

blog updates

This blog was really due for some changes/touch-ups, so I finally did it. I’m not that happy with the theme, but this will have to do for the time being. If you notice something weird, let me know (yes, you all 3 of my readers!).

Update jPlayer track/listeners on a webpage with jsonp

I recently found myself working on a small web-radio project for some friends, and I stumbled upon some interesting technical “challenges” (to say so). I wanted a HTML5 Web-Radio Player (I used the excellent jPlayer project, which supports html5’s <audio>in a wide range of browsers, but also has a fall-back to Adobe Flash for older browsers), but

Equalizer APO Config GUI

Just having upgraded recently to Windows 8, I found that my on-board sound-card has lost its driver’s Equalizer function, and being the owner of some shitty speakers, I really wanted to change how they sounded. So by Googling around, I found this amazing piece of software: Equalizer APO.

DirectX/OpenGL Mumble Overlay Holder

As many people have unfortunately stumbled upon this issue – Mumble‘s Overlay only works with OpenGL and DirectX9 and ONLY with 32bit (x86) executables. Running on anything else (DirectX11 and/or 64bit .exe) causes the overlay to not display over these games. This can be seen, for example, in World of Warcraft – when run with

Color Chooser – A simple way to bookmark colors

I’ve been looking for a while for a simple tool or page that just allows me to bookmark some colors or create a simple palette without having to start up a heavy tool like a complete image editor. I naturally thought of a web page that I could just bookmark and create a folder under

Bootstrap – a custom template for OSCam

Due to lack of user interest (and my own, to be fair), this project is currently frozen/dead. The OSCam WebUI advanced a lot and this is no longer compatible with the latest OSCam versions. I’ve been working, lately, on a OSCam template called Boostrap. OSCam is an “Open Source Conditional Access Module” software. If you

Extending Upside-Down-Ternet

I was sick of people freeloading on my WiFi and I didn’t want to password protect it (for various reasons I’m too lazy to explain). So I remembered about Upside-Down-Ternet and I extended it a bit with 23 more annoyances: In addition of Flipping the images, I also grey-scaled them I replaced ALL .swf files on webpages with a
