JavaScript based online Gameboy emulator

Original GameboyIt’s not often that I play games. And if I do, then my favorites are classic games. And yes, I still grow up with a Gameboy. With a large Gameboy.  Since these are no longer available, I have already had one or two emulators in my hands.  But what I’ve found now on the web, I’ve never seen before.
A student named Grant has developed his own Game Boy emulator. The remarkable thing is that it is completely written JavaScript and therefore runs online.
I think that’s an extraordinary achievement. An online demo can be found here. Also Grant has uploaded the sources to github.
The roms, which are needed to play, you have to get by yourself. But a short look over at Google should help you. Because the procurement of roms is in a legal gray […]

Update: HNBK.plan 1.0.8 released

hnbk.plan-1.0.8_screenshotThe last update for the HNBK.plan app is already again a while. Today I’ll present you a new release. HNBK.plan in version 1.0.8. But please don’t expect great innovations. I only removed one silly bug that has been created through the new year. The current version can be found in the main article for the app. (Follow the link below.)
Download: HNBK.plan 1.0.8
 
For the nerds there’s something to smile. The error, that had crept in, was one to hit your head on the table… But take a look for yourself…
Old line:
String planUrl = "http://217.78.137.198:64004/c/" +kw + "/c" + createClassPath() + ".htm";
Fixed line:
String planUrl = "http://217.78.137.198:64004/c/" + (((kw + "").length() == 1) ? "0"+kw : kw) + "/c" + createClassPath() + ".htm";

HNBK.plan – a substitute schedule app for the Heinz-Nixdorf-Berufskolleg

May I introduce to you? HNBK.plan – a substitute schedule app for the HNBK (Heinz-Nixdorf-Berufskolleg) in Essen, NRW. Since the online representation of the plan unfortunately is very awkward to reach and the operation via smartphone resembles a true odyssey, I thought it was time for an app. So I took time to learn the Android app development basics. To put it in a nutshell – I created my first native Android app, which can be downloaded by you from now on.

New category – “wiki”

 
Hello together,
I’ll just want to inform you that there’ll be soon a new category. The category will be named “wiki” and gradually filled with articles, which on the contrary to my other articles on this blog, will completely missing my personal touch. The articles should be seen as pure knowledge articles which are totally free from any comments of mine or my personal opinion.
If you now ask yourself, “Why does he do that?” I’ll say, “let me explain it to you.” A couple of times there have been articles where I used techniques and terms whiche are not very common. So as not to bloat these articles with all that nerdy stuff, I will create wiki articles on specific topics, which you can work through, to get the necessary background knowledge for the main articles.
 
 
Greetings,
Raffi

code-bude.net from now on in english

code-bude.net multilingual
I’ve planned for quite some time to blog in german and english. Therefore I read many articles about how to set up a multilingual wordpress blog. Although there are a lot of plugins for wordpress, which claim to be the best translation plugin ever, the most of them are more or less useless for me or don’t satisfy my requirements.
One importent criterion for me was that the plugin should work “hand in hand” with google. Sure, I’m not that epic seo professional, but I think I know the most basics. And a multiligual plugin, which save the texts from multi languages inside one post, under one url and only shows and hides these translations, is crap. Google will find one url, keywords and meta-tags only in one language, but texts for atleast two languages. That really isn’t […]
