Bilingual blog!

It might be nice to write in English, so that the whole world can benefit from what I write, but it can also be nice to write in my native langauge – Norwegian. To write in both languages ​​may be messy, but luckily there’s a plugin called “Polylang” which I’am now trying out. It seems like it does the job. Now it’s easy to seperate languages, and it is easy for me to translate. Espeacially with a little neat plugin-plugin-helper called “Polyland Auto Translate”

Will this make me update the blog more often….who knows….

Samsung S3 mini battery X-rays

My original Samsung battery for my S3 mini died after just one year. I’ve had good experience with cheap batteries from eBay before, but the replacement I bought this time made my phone behave rather unstable. That’s why I thought I’d take an X-ray of them to see how different they where.

Replacing TF300T digitizer

Broken TF300T

My 2-year old recently broke the glass on my TF300T. The tablet is a couple of years old, so it’s a little bit on the expensive side to have it repaired by ASUS, so I decided to have a go at fixing it myself. After googeling a bit I decided to replace my 5158N digitizer with the  G01. This will require rooting the tablet and updating the digitizer firmware. If you don’t want to go through that trouble, find and order the exact same model digitizer you have in your tablet. Here is how I did it, and what I’ve learned.

DISCLAIMER: This is a difficult repair. Don’t blame me if you try this yourself and mess up your tablet even more!

Fixing the “visual editor not working” in wordpress.

My visual editor has not worked for sometime. Don’t exactly know from which update. It at least did not work in 3.5.1 and 3.5.2.

Did some googleing and found several posts with many solution, but none of them worked for me.

Tried adding the line to wp-config.php:
define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

Cleared browser cache and logged in again. Didn’t work.

Next I tried was to delete my wp-includes folder and then copying it back from the tar.gz installation file. Edited a post and did a page refresh. Then the editor worked again.

Not sure excatly what was wrong, but at least now it’s working again and I didn’t have to do a full reinstall of WP.

NURVO ROCKCHIP 3066 ANDROID TV

My latest gadget is a Nurvo Rockship 3066 Android TV. It essentially turns your TV into a big tablet. It’s very reasonably priced, and I got mine from Dustin. With a dualcore Cortex A9 at 1.6Ghz, 4Gb memory and 1Gb ram it’s a little more powerful than my Samsung S3 mini.

No more midnight sun

As always northern Norway has shown how beautiful it is. We had many days and nights with sun, but also some rainy days. When we left the sun had started just setting below the mountains, but it still doesn’t get dark.

Midnight sun, almost...

Another lichen wallpaper

From my house there is only a short walk to get into the woods. I love photos with lots of empty space and bokeh as my wallpaper. The lichen is a strange organism that has beauty of it’s own. Lichen is a symbiosis between algae and fungi. Read more about it on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichen
