Justify your site!

15 may
2021

There are four different types of horizontal text alignment. To the right, to the left, centered and justified. A side alignment, which is ubiquitous on the web, is inconceivable in print. In printing, most of the pages consist of a margin-to-margin format. This way of organizing the text is called justification. Until recently, using justified text on a website was virtually impossible. Web browsers had problems with hyphenation, with justification to a given format, with multiple lines of text. With the advent of HTML 5 and the modernization of browsers, things changed. Today, mobile browsers can justify text, and some break text into syllables and move parts of a word correctly to a new line. The possibility of conditional execution of cascade styles allows eliminating the multi-collumn composition on small screens.

Installing NDI Python command-line tools in MacOS

08 may
2021

I have written some programs that send an animations in NDI format. Several versions of the studio clock and ticker. The clock reads data from a calendar shared on the web and displays rundown based on this data. Ticker reads any RSS feed and displays it as a scrolling ticker bar. The tools are written in Python. The installer is beyond my will to do free work. However, I wrote instructions on how to compile the ndi-python library and how to install additional Python libraries necessary to run my programs. Enjoy.

In Vianden castle

03 may
2021

Vianden Castle (Luxembourgish: Veianer Schlass [ˈfɑɪɑnɐ ˈʃlɑs] or (locally) Veiner Schlooss [ˈfɑɪnɐ ˈʃloːs]), located in Vianden in the north of Luxembourg, is one of the largest fortified castles west of the Rhine. With origins dating from the 10th century, the castle was built in the Romanesque style from the 11th to 14th centuries. Gothic transformations and trimmings were added at the end of this period. A Renaissance mansion was added in the 17th century but thereafter the castle was allowed to fall into ruins. It has, however, recently been fully restored and is open to visitors.

Hike around Rosport

02 may
2021

Rosport is a town located 10 km from Echternach, halfway along the river Sauer to Grevenmacher. Rosport is famous in Luxembourg for its water intake and mineral water bottling plant. The most expensive mineral water in the principality is the water drawn in this place. Rosport is located in the valley of the Sauer River, which was dammed in this town. The blue autopedestre trail leads through the surrounding hills. Lots of beautiful views, a large elevation gain (265 meters), a reasonable length (about 11 km) and the Mariä Himmelfahrt (Girsterklause) chapel make this trail a great treat for hiking fans.

Electric Powerplant no. 1 in Lodz

08 apr
2021

In 2010, I had the opportunity to take panoramic photos of the ruins of the oldest power plant in Łódź. EC1. The power plant looked like a Chernobyl back then. Today it is restored and you will not see these stains and peeling paint anymore. This is a virtual tour around something not existing anymore. There are about 30 panoramas linked together.
