Site is back to normal, finally

After a whole month of mess after my shared webhosting got hacked, my sites are now back to normal, all downloads should be available again. This has been so annoying to get fixed I'm unable to find words to describe the experience. In the meantime I've moved some stuff into two new sites: The pictures […]

Old code: CSS rules on the fly from JavaScript (2006)

Again, some old code I'm not using anymore since I switched to jQuery but that might be useful for someone: /* * Public Domain * Created by Toni Corvera <outlyer@outlyer.net> in September, 2006 * * Creates a new CSS ruleset, should work with multiple rules correctly * e.g.: * loadCssRules('body{font-family:sans-serif;}a:link{color:red;}'); */ // void function loadCssRules(String […]

Old code: DOM extensions (2004-2006)

Nowadays I'm using something more powerful like jQuery or base2.DOM, but if you don't, these might prove useful. /* * Copyright 2004-2006 Toni Corvera <outlyer@outlyer.net> * * License: http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lgpl.html LGPL * * Extra DOM-like methods (Note that at the time of writing they can't be * bound to the Document prototype, so they are global […]

Old code: JavaScript x-browser arrays (2005, 2010)

Last update: 2010-12-09 This block of code is deprecated, I'm only keeping it for archival purposes, see below for a more up-to-date equivalent /* * Public Domain * * Created by Toni Corvera <outlyer@outlyer.net>, 2005 * * Defines Array.find, and Array.merge */ // int Array.find(Object) if (!Array.indexOf) {/*IE has no indexOf*/ Array.prototype.find = function(what) { […]

VCS 1.12.2 released

Another minor update, although the last few versions have contained a really stupid bug that prevented the temporary files from being removed (leading to a lot of stale, possibly big, files), so upgrading is highly recommended. Thanks to Jason Tackaberry for pointing the bug. Note though I'm still on holidays so this is a quick […]

VCS 1.12.1 released

A very small update this time. It's only been delayed by real life stuff. Only worth mentioning: Workaround for cases in which GAWK uses comma as decimal separator. Many European languages use commas but only a few versions of GAWK do actually print them (and newer versions don't anymore). People encountering this bug will have […]

VCS 1.12 released

VCS 1.12 is ready to download As with 1.11 many of the changes are pretty radical and might break but it's been working fine for me so far. The changes are quite a few so I'll try to explain as best as I can. Documentation for the new stuff is on the way. New in […]

VCS 1.11.2 released

A new small update to vcs is available to download. This should be the last update before 1.12 (which will take a while to be ready) but the massive changes in 1.11.x still need more testing so who knows. Changes in 1.11.2: Some Real Audio codec names (v4, v5 and v6) Bugfix/Feature: Fallback for default […]

VCS 1.11.1 released

Here's a very small bugfix release, nothing too fancy this time around: – A name for the FLV1 codec (used in older flash videos) – Warnings about the DEFAULT_* configuration variables accidentally removed in the previous release (and temporarily accept them) – A check of ImageMagick's version that should work in all systems Also new […]

numcaps in configuration

After a user report I noticed I should clarify: If you add, e.g. numcaps=10 to your configuration file you're changing the default number of captures but the default mode of operation is to capture at fixed intervals so to actually use this value you also have to add timecode_from=$TC_NUMCAPS to your configuration, which the changes […]
