Toddlers’ Blocks for iPad and iPhone

Finally I’ve released my block-building game for the kids! They’ve been testing it on the iPad for ages, asking for more faces, telling me that they like this, don’t like that etc. Of course for App Store screen-shots I had to modify the UI, for loading and saving block layouts, it’s hard to create the…

Last year of maya calendar

This post is about last year. I have to say it was really colourful. Lets begin with office matters. This was my second year at the company, we had good year so management decided to go to other markets too. This meant new language to support, having fun with French again, c’est bon. New colleagues,…

iRecipeBook for iPad

We have a new release! The iPad compatible iRecipeBook was a request, actually we had a bad review, stating that the – iPhone only – iRecipeBook looks wrong on the iPad… The reviewer stated that five stars will be the award of an iPad compatible release. I’m waiting! Meanwhile I’m already working on localisations, social…

Creating Magento admin grid without database tables

It’s not common that you have to display something that’s not in the Magento database. It was not too difficult to figure out how to do it but checking this might save you few minutes. Feel free to download the code itself: Wizguild_VirtualGrid.zip In the Grid.php I create a Varien_Data_Collection object:

MageHack 2012 London

I wanted to write a blogpost about MageHack 2012 London (magehack.com) but somehow failed until now. I’ll be brief as it was long ago and the memory is fading fast. There was a pub warm-up event on the Friday before the event, with beers and schnitzel (a guy grabbed the last one just before me),…

First of all, my projects on the main site (mostly done, more coming) and my  support sites for iOS apps. Although I have no time and intention to blog regularly I’ve migrated my old stuff here for the posterity.

TextWrangler PHPTidy filter

I love TextWrangler. Performance of TextWrangler is just incredible compared to the alternatives. Just try to open a few hundred megabytes long XML and do a search and replace. Others will give you the spinning beach-ball for minutes. Its only real weakness is long lines. I miss few key features, though. I’m not a big…

Updated iRecipeBook finally

It took terribly long to fix the built-in web server. Thank you for your support by using the App and sorry for annoyances. The focus is on social networking features now. As the database is bigger and bigger, especially after uploading images for every recipe I’ve realized maybe we will have to implement an option…

Looking back on the year, as usual. My memory is so bad I have to take notes 🙂 If last year was positive, it’s even better, in every aspects. I have a nice new job in a small international company as Head of IT / Architect, some kind of a CTO but with lots of…
