Hey there, how are you all doing?
What a fantastic year 2011 has been so far, don’t you agree!!! =)
As there has been some activity on the site as of late I thought I should make a small post so that all new and old visitors know I’m still alive and kicking. The fact is it’s been kind of hectic as of late so my poor little personal site has fallen inte dismay.
I am planning a redesign och all sorts of stuff to do and happen here, but we’ll have to see when I get the time. I really, really want to start sharing and writing about all the cool, fun and interesting things I find everyday!
Oh well, it’s really late and I’m tired, but now you know I’m still alive 😉
You can catch me on twitter, and some other sites – check the contacts page!
And don’t forget the business page…
So this is not going to be any interesting article on some new stuff facebook or twitter or something else thats happened in the webdeveloping world.
No Sir! This is a plain and simple self promotion post on ME!! Because it is like this. A few weeks back I got a tweet from the guys at InterRail telling me about a new featured section they where starting up for the fan/person/interrailer of month and asked med if I wanted to be the first one. My first thought was WoW, that sounds amazing.
I was a bit surprised to be honest, sure I had been very active with them at the beginning of the year during the Mashable Awards voting [I voted for them like crazy – everyday]. But still, that they wanted me to be the first, of course I’d do it.
And so without further ado, here is your first InterRail Fan of the Month ….
Why I voted for them so much during Mash-Awards?? Well, the simple reason that they are one of the most active companies on Facebook and Twitter. They really try & do answer every question they get, and socialize with their fans, all the railers. So there really was no question who should win the “Best Social Media Customer Service”… =)
A while back there was a lot of talk about peoples accounts being easily hacked with a Firefox plugin called Firesheep. This could be done because sites like Facebook didn’t use secure https connections.
Well now, as some may have noticed, Facebook has solved the problem and you can now activate https, “whenever possible“.
This is how to activate it:
- click Account in the right corner
- Account Settings
- Click the Account Security heading (third from bottom)
- Mark the Secure Browsing (https) option
Option should be available to everyone, but if you don’t see it check back in a few days.
You could also fill in the ‘s’ in the adress bar yourself when you login so that the adress is https://facebook.com instead of http://facebook.com .
I found this on SixRevision [a very good site btw] and well just had to share with you guys.
So which one are you??? I think I’m somewhere in between…

–“Hey dude, you wrote seven versions. Chrome is like at uuuh v.6.0. It just came out.”
Oh yeah?? Check your Chrome version, right Now!
See told ya.
So Google has snuck in a new version of Chrome to all of us, again. Feels like I just downloaded v6, yes I downloaded it, it wouldn’t do it automatically so.
And the feeling I have, and you might have is correct. Google released version 5, around August 10th and today is, well now it’s 19th of October. Thats only 2.5 months, for TWO whole versions. That is crazy development time.
The question is should they really be releasing full version number? Because, like now, theres only minor fixes and changes. What are Google running for?
Is it Safari, well you’ve passed them.
Firefox – well they’re still at 3.6 (huh? how come)
Opera – hmm soon to turn 11 =D
Or is it good old IE? IE goes version 9 very soon, IE9 beta allready out, so is that Googles aim and big goal in life for Chrome?
If it’s not, if they plain and simple love updating the version in itself. Very soon, like say 3 years, we will be on I’d say Chrome 40…
Oh a nightly rambling, I should be in bed, so – GoodNight!
So earlier this evening (friday) Facebook made an update to Pages and launched Page Browser! What?!
Yes Page Browser, it’s a new [for facebook] and easier way to find new, interesting, cool, what ever you want Pages. Finally, yes that is my first impression! Now if we could get this for people too, yes? no?
Because honestly, that’s been one of the big weaks points on FB in my opinion, it’s really hard to find new people. If you don’t hang around in groups and pages all day… Then again, maybe that’s what one should do.. hmm?
Lately on the otherhand I’ve been wishing I had less “friends”, so perhaps finding new ones is not an issue 😛
Anyway, Facebook Page Browser has launched, do check it out!! =)
So was surfing around a bit, reading the latest post in my feedreader and started thinking that I should probably post something soon again myself . And seconds later I found this nice picture of the evolution of Adobe’s Photoshop. I thought it was rally nice and as I’m guessing most of you use PS either regularly or sometimes, I though it would be perfect to share this wonderfll infographic with you all. So here you go and enjoy!

Wow, time really flies, right!
I moved here to Helsinki a year and a month ago, but feels like it was, well a little shorter than that. My Helsinki adventure started a bit slow, with work being hard to find. Actually in the beginning I did get some interviews but then it died of. Hade some freelance projects and the “dream” (read: will) of having my own company grew stronger and stronger.
I started looking into how to start one here in Finland, options, economic help, taxes and so on and so on. In the end of April I then finally filed the papers and May 1st was the start date of Divajn – Creative Studio. Got the papers back in the end May end from May 21:st or 22:nd the business was official and legit.
Business has been somewhat slow so far, mostly been working on my own projects, now owned by the company (?). And also it’s summertime so people are on vacation.
Have a few offers out which will be decided upon in the beginning of August, so cross your fingers…
With the changes that have happened and business that’s been started, this page will begin a slight transformation soon. It will change from my personal freelance portfolio site to just being my personal site, with some portfolio stuff. Hopefully, time accepting, more frequent posts and also on more topics than just web-development, I’d like to include more of my interest here too to tell you all about all the cool stuff.
So I welcome you all to divajns website at http://divajn.eu and all future work request and suggestions I prefer if you send them through there 😉 THANX!
And for this site, you can look forward to more interesting stuff in the near future.
I wrote a small introduction and guide to creating custom post types in the upcoming WordPress 3.0.
If your swedish is somewhat okey, you can read the article over at my swedish blog or try the google translated version (the grammar sucks but hey).
You read about all the new stuff in WordPress 3.0 in the WP codex .
So for the past few months I’ve been at work with a new site for finnish photographer Kalle Kataila.
Kalle as described at his own, newly released website
Kalle Kataila (b.1978 Helsinki) is an artist currently based in Helsinki, Finland. Kataila’s work is based around concepts of landscape, awareness and personal stories. He has exhibited with artists from The Helsinki School at Paris Photo, Art Forum Berlin, École des Beaux-Arts, Paris and the Finnish Museum of Photography, Helsinki. Kataila’s works are in art collections at the Helsinki City Art Museum and the Finnish State Art Gallery as well as in several private and corporate collections in Europe and in the United States.
The site has what you call a minimalistic design, with no more information than the essentials. As K.Kataila himself is an artist, designer, the layout and design of the site largely created by himself. I took more of a consultant role in that area, and then made it all happen with html and css. Everything, more or less, standards based or rather W3C validated (as I’m writing this there are some underlying dusting to do, no worries, nothing you can see 😉 )
Other than Html/CSS the inside workings of the site are handled by PHP and a MySql database. To my aid I used the fantastic CakePhp framework, which has a lot of built in functionality one take advantage of to build applications/websites faster.
I’m not going to go into more detail about Cake here now, I will do a longer post at the swedish blog, feel free to surf over and read it there in a day or two (use google translate if needed.)
So, check out Kalle Katailas new site and do leave a comment on what ever!
