Welcome All You Noir Refugees!

This is just until I figure out what fancy new domain name that I am going to move to that no-one will know how to spell when I pronounce it or pronounce when I spell it. It is not as easy as it sounds. You might think it is, but that is probably just because you are pronouncing it wrong.

Closing Time!

One more call for alcohol so finish your wiskey or beer…

Or in other words it looks like I managed to sell my domain name for a not entirely unsignificant amount of money. This means that I will have to move my entire online identity someplace else, except, of course, my myspace profile, my linkedIn profile, my flickr gallery and my new and specially-made-for-the-occation blogger-blogspot-blog. You can find me there, until I find a new place to infest.

This message will self-destruct in a couple of days, along with the rest of the website.

Have a nice end.

Snakes on a Mac

I have been playing around a bit with Python these last couple of days (because of Maya) and it looks to be quite simple to get into. A problem I ran into though was a key missing. More specifically, the backslash. You know, this one: “”

As you can see, I found it.

But if you haven’t yet, and you, like me, have a danish macbook pro, you do like this:

backslash “” = alt + shift + 7

other useful combinations are:

brackets “[" and "]” = alt + 8 and 9

curly brackets “{” and “}” = alt + shift + 7 and 8

pipe “|” = alt + i

dollar sign “$” = alt + shift + 3

tilde “~” = alt + ¨ (the one right next to the enter key)

Of course, you could always just use the Keyboard viewer and start pressing buttons, but it could be annoying in the long run. All in all, I blame my danish keyboard. When I was in the states I couldn’t help noticing that their keyboards were so much better suited for coding. If I ever get into serious MEL / Python scripting I might even get me one.
