It's a command-line tool to access the passwords stored with the excellent Revelation Password Manager, which only provides a graphical interface. I've been using the basis of my new tool on my computers for more than 4 years now and decided I […]

Quick tip: Concatenating video files (with no quality loss)

Concatenation of video files can be done quickly from the command-line, video files must "match" (e.g. a movie formerly split into parts) i.e. they must use the same codec and parameters, this methods won't work as expected with random files. AVI files: Use mencoder with multiple inputs $ mencoder -oac copy -ovc copy -o output.avi […]

Native flash plugin in 64 bits, Debian package

Adobe has had an awful track record with their Flash plugin as far as 64bits support go, forcing us to use 32 bits plugins. But since some time ago they re-booted their efforts with the Flash Player "Square" project, gaining *native* 64bits support in Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, albeit in a parallel unofficial […]

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 […]
