Asphalt 5 for Android: screen tap controls bug + quick fix

While playing one of the most visually attractive games for Android, I discovered this annoying bug. Sometimes the steering locks without reason. This did only happen in the ‘screen tap’ controls mode.

This forced me to restart the race every time it happened. However, by visiting the controls menu and cycling through all control modes, the steering lock disappears and you can continue the race without restarring it.

I hope this bug gets fixed, as the last races are quite hard to win. This bug steals a lot of time while in the race and that makes it even harder.

In the whole picture this is a great and visually nice racing game that reminds me a lot of Need For Speed 2. Good work, Asphalt developers 🙂

Christmas in Boden

image

Back in Sonja and Berth’s house in Boden. There is a lot of snow outside and there is hardly any daylight. The christmas tree is decorated and the christmas spirit is in the air.

I guess Christmas celebration in Boden  is a tradition now since we did the same thing last year. Can’t complain about it, it’s really great here.

Mottagning!

Än en gång är det mottagning! Jag är lyrisk men kommer tyvärr inte kunna delta jättemycket första veckan på grund av sluttampen på exjobbet. Mottagningen har varit nånting att se fram emot de senaste fem åren, inte konstigt att det kommer fram härliga känslor.

En intensiv period av socialt umgänge, mycket mat och dryck, nya saker att lära sig, lära sig att bo själv, etc. Jag hade lätt gjort om det om jag fått chansen!

Nu kommer jag mest ta rollen som gamling. Ta tillfället i akt, dricka lite extra whiskey till helgen tillsammans med färskingarna och berätta om hur mycket bättre det var förut. Sorgligt men sant.

Jag undrar när man kan ta rollen som sponsrande gamling och bjuda hela sittningar på punch som Anders och gänget gjorde på Jubileums-ÄMPPOS. Jag hade gärna gjort det idag men det känns ändå lite för tidigt. Kanske nästa jubileum? Vem är med mig?

Grekpaj

Alltid kommer detta magnifika recept bort! Så nu “förevigar” jag det i min WordPress. Varsågod.

Deg:
3 dl vetemjöl
150 g margarin eller smör
2 msk kallt vatten

Fyllning:
250 g fryst bladspenat
6-8 skivor stark ost, t.ex. västerbotten
200 g fetaost
3 ägg
3 dl mjölk
1 tsk salt
2 krm svartpeppar
0,5 dl färsk basilika, strimlad, eller 1 tsk torkad
12 svarta oliver

Sätt ugnen på 200 grader.
Blanda mjöl med margarin till en smulig massa. Tillsätt vattnet och arbeta snabbt ihop till en smidig deg, det går bra i matberedare. Tryck ut degen i en pajform, ca 25 cm i diameter. Grädda pajskalet ca 15 minuter och låt svalna.
Tina spenat och krama ur lite vatten. Täck pajbottnen med ostskivorna. Fördela spenaten över. Skär fetaosten i små bitar och lägg på.
Vispa ihop ägg, mjölk och kryddor och häll i äggstanning i skalet. Grädda pajen ca 30 minuter långt ner i ugnen.
Ta ut och lägg på svarta oliver.

Friendship-Bracelets.net is temporarily down!

Update: A temporary site has been setup at: http://friendship-bracelets.net.preview.binero.se

This site has been suspended.

I’m sorry to announce it, but this is the case. I’ll do what I can do bring it back up as soon as possible. I can’t control this downtime since the site sits on a remote web hotel.

I am very keen on switching to some other web hotel. For a “big” customer like me, this current one seem to have too many problems and is quite unsafe. They can’t offer a larger account for me either! Anyway – stay connected via Facebook!

This is the answer I got from my current web host when I asked for the reason why they suspended me.

Hello Stefan,
Your site was suspended because your site was causing too much load on
the database server. You must fix your script to reduce the database
load and minimize the database queries.
Best Regards
SUPPORT

Of course, the database load is proportional to the number of visitors. Which is a very big number. I see no other solution than moving to some other web host. I guess that will be the project for this week and next.

Now I’ve bought some web space at Binero.se, a Swedish web host with good performance of servers and good reputation. Going from One.com to Binero.se will be a HUGE performance increase. As a user, you’ll probably feel the difference right away. This web hotel know know what they are doing – they’ve worked with big customers for ages. I took the smaller account and I think that will fit me just fine 🙂

Now I’m uploading all the old things to the new server. This will take a lot of time but I’ll do it for my users. The site can be reached from a random URL in the beginning, but the domain “friendship-bracelets.net” will point to it when the guys at One.com and the registrars have finished the work I gave them today.

bah! I’m having withdrawls!

I wanted to try making the bracelet buckle last night but the site shut down and I freaked out haha :p

‎:((( no no no no no… i cant wait…

im so nervous!! im like obsessed with this

WHY? ! I just started this braceletttttt. And now it is in hold. D;

I think being without friendship-bracelets.net is probably worse than being without facebook :p

Uploading thousands and thousands and thousands and *looks at watch* thousands and…. Yeah, I think you get it. I’ve already been sitting here for like three hours. The move to a new webhotel is painful but it will be a lot better when it’s done.

Aiming for Youtube

image

This is my “studio” where I make friendship bracelet tutorials. I made two tutorials yesterday. When I get up to five or so, I’ll upload a vid to youtube.

I make the bracelets on the white paper to get a good background and I place my camera on that stick which is held up by some big books. Yes, there is a cocktail book on top 🙂

The channel is called The Forward Knot and you can reach it at http://www.youtube.com/user/forwardknot. It’s nothing there atm though.
