Rage is a popular all-night Australian music video program broadcast on ABC1 on Friday nights, Saturday mornings and Saturday nights. It was first screened on the weekend of Friday, 17 April 1987.

Since 1998 rage has posted all their episode playlists online. So I created a website that combines these playlists with YouTube allowing you to travel back through time and re-experience rage's recent history.

Here is a simple JavaScript bookmarklet that replaces YouTube videos embedded using the old flash object embed method with the new iframe embed method. What this means is that you can force a lot of embeded YouTube videos to play with the HTML5 video player. This is particularly useful on IOS devices (iPhone, iPad) with the YouTube app disabled.

Just launched a new site that I worked on with Leigh Cosma called Follow Them Around.
It allows people to follow Radiohead on The King of Limbs World Tour using video footage uploaded by fans. By the end of the tour our hope is that all the tracks from every gig will be available to watch online.

For the last month or so I have taken some Photoshop graphic requests and streamed the creation live on Justin.TV. I really like the idea of streaming the creation process since it forces you to work quickly and productively (in other words to focus more on the big picture than the details).

So far I have created graphics mostly relating to various video games and pro-gamers since that is what people have asked for.

A common occurrence in programming are problems that seem simple on the surface but become increasingly complicated the longer you look at them. While working on the latest version of the Recent Posts Plus WordPress plugin I stumbled upon a variety of issues with text/html truncation which I hope to outline in this post. So lets start with text truncation...

Truncating Text

There are two ways in which I needed to truncate text; by the number of characters, and by the number of words.

Original text:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque tellus enim, iaculis eget imperdiet et, sodales id magna.

Limited to 9 chars:

Lorem ips

Limited to 9 words:

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Quisque
      1     2     3    4   5         6           7      8       9

I was asked by designer Victoria Lamb for some flowery wallpaper designs for Sydney Theater Company's latest production of Loot.

Victoria also asked for a Monty Python-esque 5 pound note. I'm not sure ultimately how it was used but changing the Queen into a Corgy was fun :p

The other day I had an issue with sharing a Brother Fax 2850 printer connected to Windows 7 with another Windows XP computer. Which I wanted to post for future reference.

The problem is fairly simple the driver from the Brother website here has a slightly different model name to the one detected by Windows 7.

The fix is easy just extract the driver then open the brpry4p.inf file with notepad (you may need to change the files properties so it is no longer "read-only" in order to save).

Scroll down to this line:

;; Model Name
BRFAX2900.MFC = "Brother FAX-2900"
BRFAX3800.MFC = "Brother FAX-3800"
BRFAX2850.MFC = "Brother FAX-2850"

Should be changed to the name Windows XP has listed:

;; Model Name
BRFAX2900.MFC = "Brother FAX-2900"
BRFAX3800.MFC = "Brother FAX-3800"
BRFAX2850.MFC = "Brother FAX-2850 USB"

After that change Windows XP should correctly detect the driver.
