I have copied this article from web archive. Sometimes someone asks me about a program that is 23 years old. I am proud that it is still useful to someone. Here is the documentation and the link to download the WGL Assistant. WGL Assistant allows convenient use of the multilingual (Unicode/WGL4) TrueType and OpenType/TTF fonts in all MS Windows applications.

Teufelsschlucht - trolls nest

23 jun
2021

The Devil's Gorge or Teufelsschlucht is located on the eastern edge of the Ferschweiler Plateau within the South Eifel Nature Park in the vicinity of Irrel. It was formed towards the end of the last ice age, about 10,000 years ago as the result of one or more rock collapses. The cause of this event was probably a combination of the geological and climatic circumstances. The heavily fissured, more or less porous, rock strata of the so-called Luxembourg Sandstone (geologically part of the Lower Jurassic or German Lias) are laid over keuper beds that tend towards being impervious. As weathering progresses, the structure becomes unstable as a result of the undercutting of the sandstone base. Towards the end of the last glaciation period this undercutting, in combination with extensive frost shattering, reached the point where it caused the aforementioned rock collapse.

Photo of the day June 2021

The best camera is the one you have with you. It just so happened that lately I always have my cell phone with me and this cell phone is taking some pretty cool pictures. Of course, cells can draw what they cannot see, but the convenience of navigating with one universal tool is so great that I can get over the loss of quality. On this page I try to post one photo every two three days. I choose photos that are somehow representative of the period. Birthdays, views, puddles, flowers ... I am editing photos in Affinity Photo. This program, which can be purchased for $ 26, has functionality comparable to Photoshop CS6. It can develop photos in RAW, compose HDR, panoramas (okay, terrible), perspective adjustments (very important with the ultra-wide lens of my Samsung S10) and perform full image editing. If someone insists, you can also lose weight, enlarge your eyes or something else. And you don't pay for it every month. I recommend.

Virtual camera from your phone for your desktop

02 jun
2021

NewTek is giving away the NDI HX Camera App today. The app turns your phone into a webcam that can be used in Windows or OSX (or in image mixing systems). It normally costs € 20 so it's a pretty cool deal. If you have a desktop computer using an old phone, the NDI Virtual Input application can have a webcam that works with Skype, Teams or Zoom. It is enough for the phone and the computer to be on the same wifi network. My old LG G4 gives a 2K image at the output of the front camera. In the back it gives 4k, but it is so convenient for me to frame with front camera and it's still more than HD! If you have a lame webcam in your laptop, the phone will probably be better. You can put it in a different angle, presenting your better self. If you look for decent USB cameras in stores, it will turn out that 4k costs several dozen euros. So get this one, go in and download the NDI HX Camera from the Google Store. Download free NDI Tools from ndi.tv and rawhide!

My most popular Title design

01 jun
2021

I like to have my own set designs. There is nothing like your own, well-thought-out design of titles, picture in picture, screen divisions, crossovers. Well ... everything that differs random production from professional production. Among the various projects, one turned out to be extremely good for me. Half of my competitors and fellow streamers used these titles in their productions ... because they are cool and universal. Now I am posting this project to everyone in 4k resolution. I used two typefaces - Armata (a wonderful sans-serif typeface) for the title and Jetbrains Mono - a monospace typeface for the date stamp. Armata is part of the Google web font collection, JB Mono is a free font distributed by Jetbrains.

Justify your site!

24 may
2021

There are four different types of horizontal text alignment. To the right, to the left, centered and justified. A side alignment, which is ubiquitous on the web, is inconceivable in print. In printing, most of the pages consist of a margin-to-margin format. This way of organizing the text is called justification. Until recently, using justified text on a website was virtually impossible. Web browsers had problems with hyphenation, with justification to a given format, with multiple lines of text. With the advent of HTML 5 and the modernization of browsers, things changed. Today, mobile browsers can justify text, and some break text into syllables and move parts of a word correctly to a new line. The possibility of conditional execution of cascade styles allows eliminating the multi-collumn composition on small screens.
