Creating time-lapse videos
This guide shows you how to create high-definition time-lapse videos from series of still pictures, tailored towards Flickr, and using only free and open source tools available on most operating systems (although I'm not sure about Windows).
Facebook won't work with NoScript extension
Looks like they're doing something retarded when detecting NoScript: Some links (for example, other people's profiles) have an extra
?_fb_noscript=1at the end, and the page includes a
<meta http-equiv=refresh content="0; URL=/people/JohnDoe/12345678?_fb_noscript=1" />, which results in an endless loop of reloading the same page :/
Wireless setup of HP printer on Ubuntu
It's ridiculously simple:
Minecraft mine analysis - mian
The mian wiki is now up! Updates will be put there for your convenience.
Which motives could there be for the Stuxnet virus' behavior? This is more of a list to remember, in case more evidence of the behavior surfaces later. Note that there's no mention of which motives I think are likely - I don't know enough about Stuxnet or the people behind it for that.

pdftk: great (but small), free (but valuable) and powerful (but simple). It's also open source, which means you can learn it now, and use it the same way in five, ten, or twenty years.
Drakensang on Ubuntu 10.04
Goal: Run Drakensang Gold Edition (AFAIK, version 1.2) German on Ubuntu 10.04 with 5.1 surround sound and nice graphics. As always, YMMV and RTFM apply.
SVG example code
While trying to reduce the size of the CERN Central Library bookmark and getting away from the messy Inkscape SVG, I'll post the resulting parts separately.
Library bookmark redesign
Here's a little hobby project that I've been working on at the CERN Central Library (Update: sorry, the link is dead). Instead of the familiar blue bookmark with only a title, the idea is to add anything that can be useful to library guests (and even strangers) that will fit inside the space of the bookmark. Hopefully it can give more people an idea of what we can do for them, what they can do on their own, how to find us and provide a simple way to send feedback.
