Learn you a Parallax for Great Good
A few weeks ago I gave this simple little presentation for Web Directions South, here in Melbourne. I'm a tad rusty (well, very rusty!), but I did enjoy the night. See below for video:
TOXIC TRASH - Forgotten Czech black/thrash
I've had a bunch of people ask me to rip this
since I started waffling on about it. I apologise for the delay, but I
finally ripped with decent quality.
Unfortunately, I've never seen another copy of this in all my searching, but here is what I have found out:
Country: Bratislava, Slovakia (still Czech when released)
Sponsor: Pring (Required for distribution in those times)
If anyone else knows more about this LP, please tell me. I wrestled mine from the grips of an Austrian guy who'd found it 11 years earlier in a second-hand store in Prague.
I think it really deserves a place amongst the other Czech classics.
Enjoy!! Track #2 is a real scorcher, in my opinion!!
A typical day in the office
We work very hard to meet our deadlines, but from time-to-time we just have to let our inner Ninja out to play.
Witchhammer 2.0 - coming SOON
Update May 13th: V2 is completed and available for download: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/witchhammer/
I knew the day would come when the guys behind Metal-Archives.com would decide to unveil thier new web site. I specifically wrote Witchhammer in a way that would limit my headaches if the web sites HTML changed some time in the future.
Of course, that day has come! The new Metal-Archives.com is totally different. It's been rewritten from the ground up (as far as I can tell). The new format actually makes Witchhammer a bit more intuitive, but there are still a couple of issues (the MA JSON pseudo-API doesn't seem to respond to it's input parameters!)
I've been working sporadically over the past few nights to get the Witchhammer working with the new site. I am about 90% of the way through and should be able to deploy the new version some time in the next 48 hours.
Thanks for the patience. :)
Witchhammer be broked
Just a quick one so I can direct emails and nasty comments from Heavy Metal warriors here.
Metal-Archives.com, as of 31/01/11, have disabled their search functionality and replaced it with a Google site-specific search (supposedly for performance reasons). Unfortunately, this totally breaks Witchhammer.
When the Metal Archives staff decide to re-enable the search, Witchhammer will start working again (unless they change their views, in which case I'll have some work to do).
Please stand by! I've also added a note on the download page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9671/
Also, i've passed the 3,000 users mark. I think that's pretty cool.
