My 7 things

with 2 comments

The 7 things have been all around the PHP community for a while now, and I got tagged by Christer a while ago. So I guess I should go around and publish my seven things:

  1. I am an assisting nurse graduate
  2. I have a 3 year old daughter
  3. Expired dairy products are some of the most disgusting things I know
  4. I dream of some day having a small cabin by the lake, without any internet or television?!?
  5. I often think about how it would be like to be the only person alive on the earth. (Something similar to the “I am legend” movie, without the zombies).
  6. I took dance lessons when I was a kid, however I really suck at dancing.
  7. I drink way to much Pepsi

Those seven things were not really interesting at all, but it was all I could get together for now. Who knows someday I just might publish: “the top 1000 things you did not know about me” :P

My lucky seven bloggers which I tag are:

Here are some rules that must be followed by anyone who decide to follow up:

* Link your original tagger(s), and list these rules on your blog.
* Share seven facts about yourself in the post – some random, some wierd.
* Tag seven people at the end of your post by leaving their names and the links to their blogs.
* Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs and/or Twitter.

The revolution

without comments

I have experienced a revolution the last week. Last Wednesday I was provided with a new phone by my employer Orange Bus, it was an……. Iphone.

I never really understood the big thing with the Iphone, until now, my requirements and expectations from a phone so far has been calling, and sending and receiving text messages. So as you might imagine getting an Iphone was quite a revolution for me, and it have changed my entire understanding of a mobile device, and I am tempted to say that it actually have changed my life to some extent.

Now I am surfing with my (I)phone, I read my emails, I listen to podcasts, check the weather reports, I find directions and I watch youtube videos!?! I am also using it to the regular things like calling and text messaging of course.

I have had other phones before which had wlan, a decent browser and a couple of GB of memory but their user interface and screen size have not been appealing enough for real usage.

I have to hand it to Apple, that is one piece of craftsmanship they have created.

Thank you Apple for revolutionizing my mobile world.

Flowplayer, https and the streamnotfound “problem”

with 4 comments

Lately I have been working on a project which used Amazon S3 to provide videos to Flowplayer on a website. This was working superbly until we added a link to a video using the https protocol. This broke the Flowplayer on Internet explorer 6 and 7 and Safari, and we got a:

  1. streamNotFound, clip: 'https://someurl'

Solution: Amazon S3 supports both http and https, so replacing https with http solved the problem. This problem probably occurs because the web browser is unable to cache the data from the https url and therefore the Flowplayer is unable to play the video.

Interestingly enough Firefox had no problem at all running Flowplayer and https urls.
