scary-gallery

I've recently grown more and more frustrated with Google Photos and its tendency to randomly rearrange photos, texts and maps in albums I've meticulously created, days or weeks after I've shared them.

So I'm now looking at options to start self-hosting my more important albums, mostly my travel reports, and being the person I am I've started off by creating an element for that.

<scary-gallery> will take any number of images as input and then try to lay them out adjusting to whatever space it gets.

It's far from perfect and I will need some more elements before I can go back to photo independence. My end goal is to have something like a scary-photobook element consisting of scary-gallery elements + added texts and maybe maps.

Now playing: Syberia II

Continuing right where the first Syberia game ended, Syberia II brings the story to a more or less satisfying end. Still having some of the issues of the first part (lengthy walk sequences, no interactions with non-game-relevant things at all, mediocre voice acting) the story is engaging and interesting enough to keep going.

Now I'm curious in what direction Syberia III which will be launching in a few days will head, and I'm hoping they improved upon the game-play-issues.

Now playing: Syberia

With Syberia 3 just a few days away, I though it was about time to revisit the classic. And since I'm currently trying to learn Spanish, I thought it would be a good idea to just play the game with Spanish text and audio.

Yes, the game has it's flaw, with an extreme amount of walking involved to get from A to B (and then back and forth between A and B several times because you forgot something) and mediocre acting in many parts, but it does have an intriguing and unique story, a (challenging but not frustrating) mixture of problems and riddles to solve, and a very nice soundtrack.

Also... Mammoths!

I'm probably going to spend my 10 hours of preview time customizing my character... ;)

Polymer in Production

When I was tasked with including new functionality into an existing, rather big internal web application, I found myself in a bit of a dilemma.

For my own personal projects and several other internal projects I did at work, I have grown to love web-components using Polymer because of the ease of development and the natural way to structure applications into (re-usable) parts.

The existing web application in question had been mainly developed with a once (and still) very popular library that shall not be named.

A full rewrite of the application was out of question due to time and budget restraints, but using Polymer would have a lot of benefits for the future as far as testability, maintainability and extensibility are concerned.

In this blog post I will go over some of the things I did and had to consider to make this work.
