Don't press snooze. Get up. You're awake. Early mornings I like you. It's an adventurous day ahead.
Been working on the third prototype for Tarina and today I realized I got a love hate relationship with it. I love doing it so much I end up hating it because I get too exhausted. I should really focus on having more breaks. Do something else every now and then. Anyways, I'm making progress. Maybe I could develop on updweb & updwebitor. Cuz this is a neat little program.
Tarina is on the webz
Building the third prototype when all the parts arrive later this month. I'll document the whole building process, write a diy manual and film it with my first prototype
Tarina on bitbucket
The two working prototypes
A cardboard box full of prototypes been made. But this piece is definitely going to be a fully working one.
I think no one was prepared for a summer this early. Its early May and the lake temperature is already around twenty degrees. I love it. Somehow this winter was a long one, maybe cuz it started late January. Even if that doesnt make any sense, I've been busy, so busy that I'm broke. Got to do robotmonkeyjobs. But I'm not far away, not at all. I think.

The Year of Code
Hello February! I've been coding almost every day so far this year. Really getting things done much faster and my code looks more beautiful now. So, what have I been coding? I'm not gonna say anything else than it's the best thing I've created so far. Once it's in beta I'll let u know.
Things todo (besides my "secret" project)
Do some bugfixes and a screenplay mod for updwebitor

The first thing a writer has to do is to accept loneliness.
Can a robot replicate itself? Does it remix the replica and make it better? How can it understand what to make better? What is better? To never go extinct?

For the weekend. Make a short film with pirates for my friends real life room escape game in Vasa city Makeitout
Once upon a Time
In a forrest walked a man. He was pushing small buttons and letters appeard on a little box he held in his hands. The letters formed a text in color. Green and Purple. The Owl could see it. Buzzing mosqitos everywhere. One landed on the mans hand. The man grinned a little when the mosqito made a hole and started drinking his blod. He was tinking he'd better go home. Make the mosqitos go away. It's a bug. He was tinkering again. Defining functions and making while and for loops. It was like a game for him. A puzzle, a riddle very hard but always fascinating. Challenging him. He saw the beauty in all endless possibilities. Letting him to always be tinkering and creating. What distance should the PiCam be at away from the old M42 lens?
Updweb got a site
Made a dedicted site for Updweb. Check it out on updweb.org
. Feel free to do alpha testings. I've done a lot of bug fixings.
Open source camera
Been following the apertus
project a long time. I would be a happy beta tester but it's still expensive. Just 700e for the 35mm film sized sensor. Then you would need a powerful editing computer to turn your 4k raw footage into something nice. I will not yet go there.. that's why I'm trolling myself with the idea of using small cheap 1080p sensors with larger lenses to get that same film look. 1080p is still enough for me (for the moment).
Convex lenses are awesome. They have two focal points on each side of the lens where light produces an inverted image of the opposite surroundings and it can also be used as a magnifying glas. So it is actually showing 4 images all the time. The more convex the lens is the closer the focal point. Why wouldn't it work if I'd put the right convex lens after the old 35mm M42 lens? It should work...

Dreaming about a camera
There's old cameras everywhere and a bunch of old lenses too. What to do with these? Imagine a digital camera you could hack everything on, running Linux/Gnu. The problem is that old cameras used 35mm film. Digital sensors that big are expensive. Would it be possible to tranfer a 35mm lens image to a smaller sensor (The pi camera sensor is about 10th the size) without loosing width and depth of field. Could it be done? If, then basically you should be able to do a freaking awesome film camera for a very small price and the best thing would be that it would be completly hackable.
what if it could fit into this body
Liv Warfield featuring the NPG Hornz, Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, Kool & the Gang, Pietarin Spektaakkeli, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Sensational Space Shifters, Lee Fields & The Expressions. All grooved in their own way. I dunno if I'd say I got a belly full of Jazz. I'd probably say I've eaten mushrooms called Funk'd'lirious & my mind is trying to spot the space shifting grooves into small classes. It would be sensational to say it all falls into one singularity of music style. I'm not gonna try to do it. Still I fall into a trap of funkylisious grooves of sweet blues and I'd say Kool & the Gang came very close.
instead of Pori Jazz it should be called Pori Awesome Music
Jazz is the new bluez
at the table. beer. wine. sleepy people but funny in a way. tomorrows plans are made with a dizzy mind. pori jazz a night away.

We begin our journey to Pori.
Was gonna build on the shithouse but it's pouring down from the sky. Maybe do some bugfixing instead.
Jolla + TOHKBD + vim + python = best hacking device. You can mobile code with this setup. It's nice! I like!
Tomorrow we head up to Pori. I've heard that on these summer days there's jazzy music. Lets find out!
Fixed a minor bug on updwebitor. Did it with the tohkbd. I feel funky.

Feels funky! Thanks Dirk, Kimmo and Andrew.

Bugs in updwebitor
- editing a line in the middle of a line doesnt push the last words to the next line or drag words from all the rest of the story backwards. I might have to do some rewriting of the code. It will probably take 1-2 days of intense coding to solve this one.
- If a word or url is longer than the line it doesnt break the line. est. hacking time 1 day.
About a week ago Captain Oscar called me. He was finnishing his diy sail, a junk rig
, he asked if I'd like to jump onboard as the chef on his sail from Lovisa to Tallinn. We left of this thuesday in a mild wind in which his junk rig performed excellent in. To convert a standard sailboat to a junk rig sailboat you have to change the mast cuz there can't be any stays on it and you have to put it through the hull down to the keel (I think). If you're unfamiliar with sailboats, like I am, have a look at this
. The first night we sailed through a thick fog which split up by the rising sun.
While it was a beautiful morning the wind died completely and left us drifting for about 6 hours. We took the oppurtunity to go to sleep. When I woke up to a blue, blue sunny sky I had to go-go and took a poo-swim, its when you get yourself cleaned and take a dump at the same time. It's nice! The wind started blowing again but it was right on our nose so we had to start cruising. It took a long time. Normally if the winds are good u can do the trip in 20 hours. Now it took us 44 hours. The last bit was really fun, in Tallinn bay we had the wind behind us and did 6-7 kts all the way in.

What I like about free/libre software is that it lives a life of its own, as nature does. It can evolve. So, what distro/setup am I using now? I been sticking around with Debian for a couple of years now. Before that it was Ubuntu.
I started writing code when I were around ten. Back then in 95 it was dos command, bat files and qbasic. Now it's linux/gnu terminal, sh files and python. I'll gonna have to snoop around in the attic at my parents place for floppy disks. Maybe I would find some of my old games. I remember this adventure game I made which you could play for forever. It got harder all the time, but never ended.
Pushed the new version to bitbucket so if u want to pull from there, feel free

New features in updweb client vimwritewebz
- See the last story headers before you start writing a new story
- Give a last go to update webz after quitting vim
Need to implement to Updweb:
- Simple way to edit old stories
- Insert last picture taken function
It's nice to stay inside hacking while it's rainy out.

updweb.py still kicks ass!
my little python script is still working for me! It feels good to actually make a story file before it goes live. A file on my computer first. So I can have everything I do, my fond memories saved somewhere. What good is it for someone else, if I dont't even care about what I've written. Thats why I made updweb.
You are a story
With everything you do, you tell a story. Your story. Why would I want to give my story to a king and say "Here's my timeline, take a look, btw you can do what you want with it, if you feel like it you can use me as an advertisement for a product or you can mess up in my timeline, I dont care. You are my king and you can do whatever you want with me. You can read all my private discussions, see where I am, know who all my loved ones are, put me in a file locker and feed me spam cuz I haz trust in you. You are my King. Can I haz kiss your feet."
Just saw Citizenfour. It's sad that people get stupid when they get a bigger salary. Hope all is well with you Ed.
Last year I was in Burkina Faso at this time. I met many awesome people there and Im planing to travel back there at some point. I met Hermann, a terrific rasta djembe drummer. He and Ibrahim made this Djembe for me and guess what.. Its awesome. I just need to take care of it. Noticed some bugs eating on the inside of it. A Senegal dude in Porvoo said that I should just spray it and paint it... so thats what im dooing right now.
It's like eating bad food. Doesnt taste good or doesnt have taste at all. If you still finnish it you'll get a hangover and you wish you hadnt eaten it.
I remember when I drank coffee with sugar. One day I stopped. Now I drink coffe with milk.
Two faces of theatre
Now I know, as with everything theres another side of theatre. The destructive way. The manipulative way. Where you try to kill creativity.
As a dictator you put humans into files through different 'games' and you use the actors as it pleases. You are not creating a story. You dont even care about the story. I think this is why theatre is dying. At the end of it I asked her if she actually understood what the story was about. She said shes seen it many times and its always been different. Uncle Vanja is a very traditional story about a man who has sacrificed everything for someone else.
Rendering another film. time for a break
on a bus from Helsinki to Turku. Some thoughts I've been having:
What kind of traffic is mostly on the internet nowadays. Does it consist mostly of image and sound bits from videos. With streaming services getting more and more common. Is this really what we want. Huge servers streaming video to us exactly when we want it for a monthly fee. Its like the old telly model applied to the internets. What I hope for is clever producers/directors/writers/actors that put up their films as torrents on their own site and a pay what you like if you liked it service. This way a lot of shit wouldnt get produced and the internets wouldnt get deformed into another telly.

Testing updwebclient on the htc vision
Feels good to write on a physical keyboard. Gotta get me one of those TOHKBD for my Jolla.
From the screenplay I've been working on
The driver, PASANEN, in his early 30's with a 70's mustache and a blue jacket pulls the handbrake and steps out of the car. There's a pair of red safety spikes hanging from the rear view mirror...
There's grubs moving forth and back in the box. They seem to have a nice time talking to each other with gibberish smurf-voice. Some of the grubs are also singing. He takes a look at them and decides to take one. As he puts his hand in the box they all panic and start yelling desperately. He takes one...
The ice suddenly makes cracking noise all over the place. Pasanen looks around a bit panicked as the rod suddenly bends heavily. Something big is on. He flies of the chair while the ice still making cracking sound. He start spooling in but his spool handle breaks...
There's no better way to write than on a good old typewriter.

Did some rewriting of the code and put up a downloadable version
it should be able to run as long as you have Python Imaging Library. On Debian its called python-imaging. Try it out!!
How does it work you ask!?
- put your story files in /stories/ folder
- put your images in /images/ folder
- run ./updweb.py
I like colors
made the writewebz.py a little funkier
made the code for updwebclient.py nicer

What are we really building?
so what are we building? what do we really need?
what we have:
.. and of course lots of other tools, but I'm not going to flood these str(strings) yet.
what to build with these awesome tools? for example:
- webservers for you in your home, doing what you want when you say it to do so.
rss is not dead
why not to facebook or why not to google? I know they got servers running with information of many lives. They have all the rights to do whatever they want with the information. so, i know... they are studying and doing many crazy experiments with it.
people should know that whatever you post on these sites arent safe even if you just want to share with a specific group. It will leak sooner or later at some point.
what to do?
dont trust in these sites.. build your own.
This is how to sunday
hmm.. everyday sunday..

Mobile css done
weee.. the mobile css should be working now!
stuff to implement to updweb.py
stuff to do:
- fix bugs
- clean up css
- make a mobile css
- clean up code
- fix the story naming thing
- small time and date stamp
- rss feed
- some sort of commenting (at some point)
- make an easy installable version for a new server
hmm.. i think that's all for now
bug is fixed!
I will make the client side on my phone write the date so the server script doesn't have to worry about that.
some usefull code:
todaysdate = datetime.datetime.now().strftime('%Y%m%d')
this will print the date as 20150228
imagelist = os.listdir('/yourimagepath')
for filename in imagelist:
if todaysdate in str(filename):
imagecount = imagecount + 1
this will count how many images i've taken today.
switch to i3 yesterday and i really like it
Bugs in webupd.py
I have a bug. When writing the html image tag the script looks for the todays date + a number. I didn't realize that today it will write all yesterdays image tags wrong... :)
Fixing it now...
I'm dizzy, maybe time to take a nap :P
live the life you love you know
Made a campfire on our yard. Some friends came over, couple of beers, good times.

Repairing the old Htc Vision
This phone is one cool bastard. The only weak spot it has is the cable to its awesome physical keyboard. I just got a new cable from China. Lets see if I get it up and running.
Version zero point one is working :P
Here's some pics from today
my old htc. it has a good physical keyboard
the idea of the project
ok, so why would I spend three days working on something that I don't get any money from. :) cuz it aint about the money it's about flow.. got an idea when I was working at my house project
. What if I could write something in my favorite editor and take some pictures with my phone and then run a program that puts everything nicely on the interwebz. Three sweaty days later I have a working zero point one version. Whohoooo! This update was written in VIM, and thanks to Oscar Fröberg
for more than half of the code for this project!
Hacky text editor
wrote a nasty text editor.. lol file
comes with absolutely no warranties. Thought I could post some pics of my upcoming hack project.
what do u think its for? :)
So, how does it work?
It's a hacky script.. files
I'm not a good script kiddie. But I figured I could eventually learn something by doing this. It's a python script u run on your server that makes a static html file for your page from files it finds laying around. :)
me after 3 days of coding
I'm a tired..
the time is soon one in the night, still doing the coding on this web blog project. I got some of my friends code for this page. He coded it last year in 2014.. it's a code that makes basic text to html. md2html! Big thanks to Oscar for making it!!! It would have taken weeks for me otherwise to get this far. Goodnight interwebz. Here's a link
to my friends interwebspages.
The last update this night..
This is really the last update. I was wondering how this looks.
Trying to see how this is working out. So far so good I guess! :) Now I really need some sleep. Goodnight boys and girls.
Första upplägget i min heimlaga blog/web/sida... två dagar av kodande och nu ser den ut såhär. Hurra!
