RTL XL Direct Links

Dutch (well, officially it's based in Luxembourg) TV station RTL has a platform called RTL XL. On this platform they publish their videos. With all the current events in the world, it's nice to sometimes be able to watch their videos. Unfortunately, RTL XL insists on using Silverlight, even though not all videos are crippled with DRM. Especially the news videos are - thankfully - DRM-free. Still: Silverlight - or Moonlight - on Linux is somewhat troublesome...

Drupal Development made easier with Qt Assistant - Part 4

Welcome to the fourth and final part of this series of blogs. Last time we created and finished our PHP preprocessor, which helped us overcome some quirks in the Drupal documentation. Before that, in part one we prepared our system and in part two we configured the most important pieces of Doxygen. Read part 3a and part 3b for the work we did on the PHP Preprocessor. This time, we'll use my own DoxyAssist tool to have lots of work done for us automatically. Time to make the documentation useful!

Announcing DoxyAssist!

For my series of blogs regarding Drupal documentation and the Qt Assistant, I wanted get modular API documentation. Having everything thrown into a big bucket - Drupal Core and all contributed modules - became quite messy. On the other hand, having everything separated is just as cumbersome. I needed a tool which automatically discovers modules and builds the documentation for me. Then bundle everything in one Qt Help Collection with appropriate filters, so I can view everything together or each module's documentation separately, switching quickly in one interface. DoxyAssist to the rescue!

Sinterklaas Song, Denglish Style #2

By popular demand (read: 2 people asked for it), another Sinterklaas song in Denglish* style. The last one of this year, too.

* Note that Wikipedia refers to "Denglisch" as a mixture of German and English. Perhaps Dunglish is the better term in this case... Either way, I'm talking about mixing Dutch and English. My Denglisch (the German variant) is probably far worse than my Denglish/Dunglish.

Sinterklaas Song, Denglish Style

Since tomorrow is Sinterklaas and I've been convinced to do some blogging, here's a nice Sinterklaas song. In the spirit of globalization, I've personally translated it in Denglish, such that the average* Dutch person can still understand the words.

Sims Tools Sources: Now Open!

It's been a very long time since the Sims community was very active with the Sims 1. At the time I developed two applications for the game: The Neighborhood Handler and The Add-on Handler. Almost three years ago I decided to make the source code of these two available under the GPL2 license. Time has passed and although the source was publicly available online, it was never really announced. Time to change that, so here's the announcement (and more)!

Drupal Development made easier with Qt Assistant - Part 3b

Remember when last time we fixed Doxygen comments of Drupal so they would look right even when using Doxygen? It's time for another part in the series, and we'll continue with some more fixing. Do you still need to get set up, because perhaps you missed the earlier parts? Please (re)read parts 1, 2 and especially 3a before you move on. This time: getting in-depth topics such as the Forms API working as expected. Let's go!

Drupal Development made easier with Qt Assistant - Part 3a

Welcome back! It's been a while since I posted parts one and two of this series (yeah, I should blog more often...). Remember I was making Drupal documentation available in the Qt Assistant, a useful documentation viewer? Nice. I have some good news: I have spent some time again to get the documentation in decent order. So, without furder ado, let's continue!

MacDesperate now Online!

After quite a long time (well over a year), we finally launched MacDesperate last Sunday. We are me, Rosana, Alex and Wouter. Of course, MacDesperate is powered by Drupal. Rosana and Wouter are saving up for macs - they're the real MacDesperates - and my Donation Goals module helps them keep track of their progress. The first donations are already in. Now it's time for you to support them! Don't hesitate and go to! We've got goodies!

Drupal Development made easier with Qt Assistant - Part 2

In the previous part of this walk-through, we installed the necessary software to get our Drupal API documentation in Qt Assistant. The next step is to actually generate the documentation so we can browse through it, search it and more. If you haven't done so already, read part 1 so you're sure to have the right software...
