OpenTTD 1.0.5 for Mac OSX

OpenTTD 1.0.5 for Mac OSX

Open Transport Tycoon is a game which supports Windows and Linux native. Since I use a mac I tried to compile it for OSX, which worked out pretty well. If you have a Mac and want to play OpenTTD you can download the compiled version here. Just unzip the file by double clicking. The only thing missing is the graphics and sound files.

The graphics can be downloaded here. Just extract the zip file into the data directory of my compiled version.

The sound files can be downloaded here. Just extract the zip file into the data directory of my compiled version.

If you run into trouble feel free to leave a comment. This version of OpenTTD has been compiled on Mac OS 10.6.4.

Synthesia: Free piano learning application

Synthesia: Free piano learning application

Synthesia is a very cool game for beginner, novice and expert piano players. At first sight it looks a little bit like Guitar Hero, but now it is used for piano. Here are some more screenshots. Nice about synthesia is that it is free. The free version can load all the midi files you want, but does not show any sheet music. If you want to see the sheet music you have to buy Synthesia for $18.

Indoor design tool – Sweet home 3d

Next week I will get my very first appartment 🙂 Now I need to draw a map with all the measurements of all the rooms. A friend showed me this pretty neat tool: sweet home 3d. Ik can not only draw maps but gives you a 3d impression as well! Since it is programmed in Java it can run on Windows, OSX and Linux. Happy drawing!

Permalinks with ISAPI rewrite for WordPress

When I started this blog I wanted to have nice looking permalinks for all articles. This means all articles have links like:

http://www.basvandijk.eu/2009/01/01/happy-new-year/

instead of

http://www.basvandijk.eu/?id=3458

I almost got this working except the fact that my URLs contained “index.php” like:

http://www.basvandijk.eu/index.php/2009/01/01/happy-new-year/

After searching through lots of websites I found a solution for this issue.
