The personal blog of Even Alander, containing a lot of information about how this blog is built, but also some posts of somewhat creative stuff.

  1. Nostalgia driven web design - - I've "recently" updated alander.org, and by "updated" I probably mean re-designed, and by "design", I'm not so sure...
  2. Lynx - - Trying Lynx for the first time recently prompted me to make my web site more user accessible.
  3. The ssstraight story - - The not so straight story about moving this blog to Amazon s3.
  4. Tetris - - As a continued effort to focus on games for my personal projects, I made Tetris.
  5. Snake - - I made Snake. As a focus for this year I really want to make games, and if I keep things simple (stupid) enough, I can maybe complete several.
  6. Post install - - I read some documentation and learned something about Heroku buildpacks.
  7. Re-building this website - - Yet again rebuilding a site that already worked. But optimization, you know.
  8. Post stats 2014 - - This started as a fun post to encourage Håvard to start updating his website more frequently.
  9. Optimizing for git - - I've run into a huge git repo trap a couple of times where I just end up deleting my git repo to initialize a new one just to avoid getting into rebase.
  10. Digging through old files - - I started some work gathering old content and restore my web site to even greater heights than its former glory. Then, I sort of forgot about it, until now.
  11. Arduino Uno - - I know nearly nothing about working with electronics or programming with hardware. Soon, however...
  12. Building this website - - How I build... err, how I used to build my website.
  13. Getting myself a logo - - Is a 5$ logo worth it? Not really, but also to cheap to complain much about, so I made one myself.
  14. Warm Echo - - Totally forgot that I've posted some music here earlier, and should continue doing that. At least when I'm somewhat happy with what I've made.
  15. Recent events - - Hello blog. A writeup of things happening On line and Off line
  16. WTF, Spotify? - - The decline of the once great service, Spotify.

  20. WZ - - This is cheesy song I made at a large LAN party called Warp Zone
  21. Fine Day - - This is a song I made, but never finished, and probably never will
  22. Restoring iameven - - I've started filling up this page with my earlier content, starting with my latest blog and the blog on alander.org
  23. Ableton push - - I like this "take the tour" page. They do not fear the fold.
  24. Ghost - Light weight Wordpress - - The idea of a stripped down, stream lined and fast blogging platform seems like a good idea.
  25. Everything on the net should be dated - - Talking about obvious things that are obvious. Dates should be stamped on everything that is published.
  26. Euro Offshore container - - For a stand on ONS (Offshore Northern Seas) Euro Offshore wanted a stand to showcase their products.

  35. Weekend trip to Sirdal - - A couple of pictures I took when the sun decided to show itself for a couple of minutes. Bit windy and a long wait for the lift, but really fun to go skiing again. Oh, and it was cold.

  37. Håvard's post stats - - I counted the posts on hermiene.net and put them into a graph.
  38. Rant about airports - - My experience when departing from Bangkok Airport. A lot of queuing gave me time to observe and think about peoples behavior.
  39. The Good Old Days - - In mid winter of September 2010, in Melbourne at Deakin University, Christian Mønnich gathered a main collective of earlier Noroff students around a table and handed out scripts water marked with each individuals name. It was a script for a "short" film set during World War II.
  40. Beetle - - While making "The Good Old Days" I got an opportunity to make a car for one of the sets. The size in the final render on screen was really small so this is way too detailed. But I really wanted to make this one look good.
  41. 206 - - I actually considered buying a 206 turbo at one point, but I couldn't afford it. It's also French which is not the best thing when it comes to cars, or so I've heard. But it's a really cool car, at least the rally version.
  42. Phone sketches - - Finger painting is fun, and on the phone, not very messy.
  43. Noroff 3DDA - - This is a recap of the works I made during my first year at Noroff taking the course 3D Design and Animation, or 3DDA for short. (Media heavy post).
  44. Panorama pictures, Sola and Stavanger - - These photos where taken with a Canon Ixus 75, And then stitched together in Photoshop to create seemingly huge photos. I scaled 3 of these down to around 1 MB but kept 2 of them at the original size.
