News - 2006

December 20, 2006

I've come to realize that Multitemplate for Dokuwiki is effectively broken for newer versions of templates for DokuWiki.

As it stands, multitemplate will still work as long as your target templates don't use the “configuration management” plugin. Monobook for Dokuwiki has been using this feature since its last update, so not even monobook will work with multitemplate currently.

However, there is some good news; I almost have a working version ready, but I'm not going to be able to complete it until around the beginning of January 2007.

So this is just a notice stating: multitemplate is not completely broken, but there is a major problem, it's being worked on, but it won't be ready for a few weeks.

Decemeber 11, 2006

I have posted a new jobs section; I am currently looking for an Artist with Photoshop experience for an in progress game project.

Please have a look at it for details.

December 5, 2006

I've posted a new papers, installing_vista_rc2_with_an_older_bios. It's a potential workaround for those folks who are getting a BIOS error during the install screen on Vista.

December 2, 2006

New, big release of Monobook for Dokuwiki, here's what's new:

  • Monobook now uses the configuration manager to make things easier.
  • user_pref.php and pref.php have been removed.
  • More generalized options are available in the configuration manager.
  • There was a typo in lang.php for each language… toobox → toolbox
  • settings.php is now added to lang/en and needs localization for each language.
  • Major revamp of this page to make installation easier.

November 30, 2006

Not a big announcement, but I'll be taking down the problems section soon.

Overall, I don't believe wiki software completely models the kind of environment needed to support that section– since it would have needed more user interaction and moderation.

November 18, 2006

Slightly new Monobook for Dokuwiki, here's the addition:

  • Search results are now properly highlighted.

Updated Display Wiki Page for DokuWiki, here's what's new:

  • Display Wiki Page now honors page permissions for read. Thanks anonymous.

November 3, 2006

New drop of Monobook for Dokuwiki, here's what's new:

  • Fix upload page…
  • Fix support for new “Media manager” (grumble)
  • Add pt-br language
  • Update nl language
  • Credit Danilo Sato for br-pt
  • Credit Eric Hameleers for nl
  • Note, for some reason in IE's display of the media manager, the [+] icons are not properly aligned with the text labels on the tree. I cannot figure out how to fix this. If you find a solution, please contact me or post on the project's discussion page.

New drop of Multitemplate for Dokuwiki, where's what's new:

  • media manager support

October 31, 2006

Ok, it seems my initial attempt at “media manager” support didn't work, so I've released a “version b” of Monobook for Dokuwiki until I'm able to fix it. Essentially all that is different is that “mediamanager.php” gets deleted, so you can do that instead of redownloading, if you wish.

October 22, 2006

New Monobook for Dokuwiki, what's new:

  • Some minor changes, and…
  • Translators: Please add a lang.css (even if empty) to lang folders for new languages.
  • Polish, German, Hungarian Language updates
  • Credit to Marcin Hugo Kosiniski for pl, Volker Leonhardt for de, Peter Attila for hu

October 17, 2006

I've added My "To Do" List as a new page, to better let everyone know what I feel I have left to do on the website.

October 12, 2006

New BackupTool for Dokuwiki release, fixes the compatibilty issues with the new DokuWiki.

October 10, 2006

Hi, everyone. I've gone ahead and fixed Monobook for Dokuwiki's search since I've received so many emails about it. The german language file has also been updated.

October 7, 2006

Dear Monobook for Dokuwiki users, please test the following:

  • Probably compatible with IE 7?
  • Three new customizable css files are available:
    • /user/Monobook.css
    • /user/Common.css
    • /lang/(langauge code here)/lang.css – for instance /lang/de/lang.css

Again please test the above features as I am not able to.

  • New features as follows:
    • Upload file link works again, and now uses correct namespace
    • AJAX Quicksearch is now working (and looks good)
    • Recent Changes access key now works [ALT-R]
    • Documentation typo fixed
    • doku.php is no longer hard-coded, Monobook now uses DOKU_SCRIPT
    • Go no longer searches, it tries the page based on an ID you put in there
      • Search is still the default, though.

This takes care of all but two of the outstanding issues on the discussion page. The discussion page has been cleaned up as well. I trimmed it by 12 pages of mostly fixed bug reports. 8-O

October 2, 2006

Ok, I've taken a look at the new release of DokuWiki, and here's the verdict on what needs to be fixed:

  • BackupTool needs to be updated, because:
    • it relies on the idea that you have a "changes.log" which no longer exists.
  • Monobook could use an update, since:
    • The upload manager thingy is now different, and needs new stylesheet information
    • And the link to access uploads has changed (argh)
  • Display Wiki Page, Google Analytics, and Referrers could use an update:
    • To take advantage of the new action plugin structure; they work fine as is though.

I'll start attacking these issues Friday, but in the meantime, if you yourself can fix a problem or two before me, please send me an update.

September 21, 2006

I've pulled up the documentation I have on kempomake and have posted it on that project's page.

September 5, 2006

I've begun to add the problems section of the website. This section is devoted to problems you can use to improve your C, C++, and Java programming skills.

September 3, 2006

August 31, 2006

August 23, 2006

August 20, 2006

New plugin, Google Analytics for DokuWiki has been posted.

Monobook for Dokuwiki has also been updated– German / DE language update and google analytics code has been removed– it is now in the new plugin (above) so any template can use it.

August 19, 2006 - 6:45PM

Monobook for Dokuwiki has been updated; some minor changes and some new supported languages.

August 19, 2006

Some files have been shuffled around; if you find any broken links please let me know.

Also, there will be an update to Monobook for Dokuwiki in the next day or so along with some new plugins that will be pulled from the template… So in other words, the template will be smaller, and there will be additional optional plugins to install if you wish.

Once this has taken place, I see updates to the template as being minimal– updates will probably consist solely of language support and look and feel tweaks here and there.

But we're not there just yet, so stay tuned.

August 3, 2006

BackupTool for Dokuwiki has been updated to include full internationalization support; so translators, get to it!

July 29, 2006

New project, BackupTool for Dokuwiki – a plugin for DokuWiki.

July 28, 2006

A new version of Monobook for Dokuwiki is now available.

July 15, 2006

I've posted a new papers, Operator Overloading for Manufactured Types, which describes the common list of operators you'll probably use if you want to create your own manufactured types in C++.

July 13, 2006

I've posted Spimmy, a mini MIPS simulator, written in C. Theoretically it should compile and run on any system that supports gcc.

There is also now a discussion page for the papers arcball_rotation_control_revisited.

June 24, 2006

New project, Multitemplate for Dokuwiki, which allows you to use any template you wish for any namespace(or file) you wish.

Also, Monobook for Dokuwiki has been updated so that it is “multitemplate ready.”

Update: Multitemplate for Dokuwiki has a small update that gives the “upload file” page the default template, which was the only thing that was missing from the initial release.

June 23, 2006

New drop of Monobook for Dokuwiki today, as promised. Go see what's new.

June 15, 2006

There will be a new release of Monobook for Dokuwiki June 23, 2006. Please stay tuned…

June 14, 2006

I’ve transitioned to a new host. Please let me know if there are any broken links or downloads.

June 7, 2006

The server that hosts this site had a bad crash yesterday, and as a result I've lost most emails sent between yesterday and today, so if you've sent an email June 6th or 7th, please resend them, thanks.

May 31, 2006

I've posted a new entry to the proofs today, one_equals_almost_one.

May 19, 2006

Another tiny bug fixed in main.php in Monobook for Dokuwiki.

Since it's Friday, and there were no other pending changes, I'm making this today's release.

May 15, 2006

There was a tiny bug in pref.php in Monobook for Dokuwiki related to the discussion tab. I've gone ahead and fixed it, and re-uploaded the file as the May 12th file.

If you don't want to re-download, just look for this line in pref.php:

$monobook['discussion'] = "talk";

and replace it with:

$monobook['discussion-location'] = "talk";

And that will fix it. Thanks to Joanne Walding for spotting this one.

May 12, 2006

Hi all. Just to let you know of the following events:

  • I caught a cold of some sort Tuesday
  • Finals at the college started Tuesday, and last until May 1st.
  • I have received a lot of contributions to Monobook for Dokuwiki

Because of all of this, I'll be delaying changes until May 2nd, which is Tuesday– tests will be over and I should have recovered by then.

Also, I think I like the old format of news better, so I've changed it back. :-)

April 26, 2006

I've installed the Box Plugin, and plan to install the note plugin later tonight to spruce up the site a little.

  • A referrers script like mine is now included! 8-O
  • And other shocking things! 8-O

April 19, 2006

adblock_settings has been updated; not many changes, but enough to warrant a new release. I've also put up some interesting proofs for perusal. They're rough and require cleanup, but I believe they're unique in their conception.

April 17, 2006

Warman has found the source to the last versions of macslomo and macvision-8, so they are now available.

April 16, 2006

I've found an old version of MacVision-8 that ought to work on Classic Mac computers… so now I have versions of MacVision-8 for all Mac OSes with the exception of the new Intel based stuff. Also some Links have been removed because of emails and other forms of contact going unanswered.

April 14, 2006

New email today on the topic of Endianness Confusion!

March 10, 2006

OK, since yesterday, DokuWiki was updated again, and there appears to be more problems that are showing up in templates again.

Now, as for the update I had planned tonight, unfortunately other things have come up that I need to take care of, and I regret to say the new version will be delayed a few days. I expect to release sometime Tuesday, and I'll be away from the Internet until then.

March 9, 2006

Aloha, everybody; there will be a new release of Monobook for Dokuwiki tomorrow night. If you find any bugs or mini feature requests not already listed on the project page, please let me know tonight sometime, thanks!

March 5, 2006

March 4, 2006

Posted a new email, this time a question about customizing Monobook.

March 1, 2006

OKAY! Monobook for Dokuwiki has had some major bug fixes. The bottom line is that it should work with any DokuWiki configuration now. So go get the latest version and read about what was fixed!

Update: 7:00PM, Just added the “image details” page, which looks like Wikipedia's except for the tab colors.

February 27, 2006

New drop of libtate available. For what's new see Libtate Changes Log.

February 23, 2006

For the folks who were at the Game Developer club @ UCF tonight, here is the link to Candy Crisis (not my project.) The source is available of course, and it is example of a good, polished, professional looking game.

February 19, 2006

Ok, I have released Monobook for Dokuwiki for general consumption. Requires DokuWiki.

February 17, 2006

Well, I have finally succeeded in converting the look and feel of the wiki to monobook, and I couldn't be happier.

In other news, for the folks who were at the Game Developer club @ UCF last night, here is the link for virtual_grandpa. Feel free to collaborate with me or others or on your own to try to finish coding it.

February 12, 2006

libtate now has full PushbackInF and BufferInF support. Streams and Stream Filters now have a proper object oriented base. Once the stream and stream filters packages are finalized, documentation will be available for them.

February 6, 2006

I've gone ahead and enabled a feature such that the wiki works more like other wikis; I've also moved its directory and such… for the purpose of getting Google to properly index this site again. Special thanks to Remy.

February 5, 2006

A new drop of libtate has been posted with initial stream and stream filter support. Also, libtate Changes Log have been posted and will be updated per drop. Please read the change log before using the stream and stream filters.

January 24, 2006

Some initial API documentation has been posted for libtate. A new version of libtate with some fixes and initial stream support will be posted within the next few days.

January 15, 2006

Initial version of libtate has been released! This version currently only contains the base package, and until the initial development cycle is done, will only support Windows. (Future versions will also allow for development on current and older video game consoles.)

January 13, 2006

Licensing information has been updated for projects which have a license.

January 11, 2006

Here is the older look on top of the wiki engine. Although this is better than the default template, it doesn't feel like a perfect fit just yet, so I'll probably take another stab at it over the weekend.

January 7, 2006

Well, the entire site has been restored, and everything is now “wikified.” You can use the Site map to see all pages on the site. Next thing to change will be the template (aka the look and feel) as time permits.

January 6, 2006

Hello everybody! To those who saw the in-progress page last week, the site has now returned; to those who have not visited in a while, welcome back.

I've decided to make the entire site a Wiki site. Why, you may ask? Well primarily because it has come to my attention that a Wiki is about one of the easiest ways to publish content, even for a personal web site.

Dokuwiki is probably the best choice for a Wiki; it is easy to configure and install, doesn't require a database, has user permissions, namespaces, and a lot of other cool features. About the only thing it is missing is a Monobook look and feel.

So that's that. In other news, I will be putting the older content back online in the next week or so as time permits.
