If you don’t know it yet, imabi.net is one of the many websites that offer Japanese lessons. This vCalendar Generator builds a vCalendar (ics) file that can be imported into electronic calendars like Evolution, Google Calendar, Outlook etc. It plans one lesson from imabi for each day, starting the next day after this script was […]

I’m currently reading the web novel “THE NEW GATE” and while admittedly all automated translating services suck when it comes to Japanese, the one run by Microsoft surprised me the most with its translations because it is the only one that feels like talking to a pubescent teenage boy. Examples (all taken from THE NEW […]

Windows 10 allows windows to be snapped not only to the sides but to the corners as well. I use this configuration for many years on Ubuntu Unity and I thought I’d share a fast way to set it up. Simply open a terminal and copy/paste the following commands: And this command restores the initial […]

It seems that Windows 10 uses a different registry key than Windows 7 to disable Aero Shake so here are the registry entries: DisableAeroShake.reg

Welcome to my first webcomic with the title “I draw”. This comic is about myself aquiring drawing skills and I think that it feels actually like some kind of hybrid between a picture diary and a drawing / Krita tutorial. New images are added with each new attempt to get to the chapter’s goal of […]

I thought it might be quite interesting to make a list of some unfinished and other works that I created over the years but never got a title. If you know my “Frets on Fire”, you will probably immediately recognize the track I took the melody from and some of the other tracks would definitely […]

I wrote a small script to make the usage of Krita source builds more comfortable for me on Ubuntu. It might be interesting for others as well, so I decided to share it. Along with the script comes a menu entry for it with file associations for all file types that Krita supports (kra, ora, […]

I created some thumbnailers for Krita (.kra), Gimp (.xcf), OpenRaster (.ora) and Adobe Photoshop (.psd) files and added them to my Ubuntu PPA as the package mmolch-thumbnailers. They use xcf2png, unzip and imagemagick behind the scenes and are used by most GTK based file managers (Nautilus, Nemo, PCManFM etc.) You can use the following line […]

Websites Dictionaries http://wadoku.de *THE* german dictionary. Practically all non-commercial programs make use of wadoku’s database nowadays if they offer some japanese-german translation. The database can be downloaded and freely used unless you incorporate it into a commercial product. http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~jwb/cgi-bin/wwwjdic.cgi WWWJDIC is the dinosaur when it comes to online dictionaries. It’s quite extensive and offers a […]

I recently needed a JSON implementation to serve as a transport layer for RPC for a project I am working on at the moment and JSON.net doesn’t work with the Mono-version that comes bundled with Unity and would be absolute overkill for my purposes. So I wrote my own small JSON “library”. Well, calling it […]
