Replacing the tty.js frontend with xterm.js

Tty.js is a web based terminal emulator, both server and client side included. The frontend is provided by term.js, which is quite dated. There was not any major development since 2013, and a few days ago the “no longer maintained” label was put on it. For me the biggest disadvantage of it is that it does not support the Hungarian keyboard layout, the special characters need be to inserted with ASCII codes. However the frontend is easily replacable with the newer xterm.js.


Drupal in the Deep

The Hungarian Wesnoth Community page was the first site, where I used Drupal. And it remains the first according to Drupal development too. We have a championship over there, which required some pretty complex moduls. But Drupal is the most logical content management system out there, so I thought anything will go like a breeze. Well, it didn’t.


New start in spring

Spring always simbolises something new. My site has reborned too, but for the English speakers it’s the first time they can read the content. I had a small self-made PHP site since 18th January 2006, and I closed it down this week, at the 24 February 2009. And today Drupal emerged to be the ancestor, and to arrange every content which should pop out of my not well organized mind.



This word doesn’t exist, but my site eventually went through this process. Instead of the old shattered and torn code the PHP magician Drupal mixes the soup which my site is. I’ve got all my old content here but this is the first time that my page is bilingual. If you want to read more about the past of the page, and the future I have in mind, please read about that in my blog.


XHTML 2 discontinued

The W3C announced that it will drop XHTML 2 in favor of HTML 5. It’s a sad thing because the XML well-formedness could have spared a lot of effort and processing power on different platforms. It easier to write an XML parser, than an SGML parser and since Leonardo Da Vinci we all know that simplicity is the ultimate sophistication so I feel XHTML more symphatic. But we shouldn’t fear, the guys previously working on XHTML2 will boost the finishing of HTML5, and after it is finished, we will have an XHTML5 :).


Free software

Quick tip: connecting to a key restricted server with Nautilus

Nautilus, the file browser of GNOME is capable to connect to remote servers through the SCP protocol. Press Ugrás > Hely megadása (Ctrl+L), and you can type in the user and URL right away. This works flawlessly up until the remote server is protected with a password, or the private SSH key has the default name on our machine (id_rsa). This functionality will break as soon as the private key has a different filename.



Ten thousand

10.000 last.fm listenings! I registered on the 11th January 2009, since then it remembers my tracks, and I subscribed on the 1st May 2009, which is the day of work in Hungary and a perfect occasion to celebrate. In this period could I gather 10.000 listenings, which is 31 tracks a day. Depending on the viewpoint the milestone was Simple Plan – I’d do anything or Drumsound & Simon “Bassline” Smith – Get Through. About my genres:


Improvements of a self-drawing

I need it, ’cause it’s cool. I need it, ’cause people say I’m creative and good with my hands. I need it, ’cause while I draw it I do nothing else. And at last I need a new one. I need a new one because the old one was drawn in Macromedia Flash, and while I took care of the source file I was lazy to actually find it. I only touch commercial (now Adobe) stuff when I have to anyway. So I started to redraw myself in Inkscape. Here it is:


Projects for the summer

The university is over, and I still have 2 months left from the summer. I’ll spend the time in front of my computer working on the following projects:
