Downsample your images in batch with ImageMagick

Last modified: 29/12/2011

Have you ever send some pictures to your friends by email or posted them somewhere on the web? I guess you did!

If these images are of high resolution they will take a lot of bandwidth.
So normally it’s preferable to first downsample those images.

ImageMagick is a very handy commandline tool to do the trick.

C# value type, reference type, pass by value, pass by reference

I experienced that the terms value type, reference type, pass by value, pass by reference are sometimes confusing for the beginning C# programmer (I include myself to this category).
Therefore I will try to explain this as clearly as possible with some small examples.

Intro

It has been a while that I posted on my blog but my motto is “less is more” and in between I moved this site to another host.

500 MB disk space, 2 GB data traffic and 5 MySQL databases for 0,99 euro/month!

Drumming is fun

For all of you who are eager to learn, the Internet is like a candy shop. Not only for programmers but also for music lovers and drummers.

Uptranslate and context translate with OmniMark

Last modified: 26/01/2012

No Comments

This post will explain some of the unique conversion features of OmniMark, which is uptranslate and context translate (See the conversion scheme to have an overview of the different types of conversion).

An uptranslate makes it possible to create XML (or SGML) starting from structured data. And this structured data doesn’t have to be XML. While creating this XML it is sent to the parser.

A context translate goes even a step further, it’s a combination of an uptranslate followed by a downtranslate.
