Ooh! I had the time to modernize the online version of The Rasterbator, which, sadly had been offline for over half a year.
The online version has, I think, quite nice user experience including lots of Ajax and drag and drop file upload. Although it is quite a small detail, I'm quite proud of the human silhouette that indicates the poster size.
Coders would probably be interested that it is based on ASP.NET MVC 4, jQuery (with some plugins) and iTextSharp.
No, not here. Instead, use these links for your reading pleasure:

Update: Added SFEP Driver installation. Works also with Windows 8 Release Preview.
Let's see if this long-awaited post starts a new era in updating this blog, hopefully the era won't be as nerdy as the contents of this post, though.
I have a lovely Sony Vaio P (VGN-P31ZK) ultraportable, which came with Windows 7. Unfortunately the hardware was just too flimsy for that operating system, so I have been using Ubuntu. Windows 8 Consumer Preview works even better than Ubuntu, with the exception of out-of-the-box support for mobile broadband.

Even with the impending threat of this site quickly turning into food journal, here is another great food recipe, one that looks and tastes great. The recipe was inspired by two other recipes (here and here).
Yields 6 portions.
- 1 kg fresh beets
- 300 g fresh parsnips
- 1 leek
- 1 garlic
- 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon dried ginger powder
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 dl sour cream
- 150 g cream cheese with blue mold (such as Bavaria Blu)
- vegetable oil
- olive oil
- black sesame seeds
- pasta (for extra scene points, use pasta that is dyed black with squid ink)
Wash and peel the beets and parsnips. Cut them into about 5 mm thick slices. Put the slices in a deep pan, add water until covered and boil until they are soft. This should take about 25 minutes for beets and 15 minutes for parsnips.

Melonpan (melon bread) is a Japanese snack food resembling little bread rolls. Western people might find them a little strange as they are a combination of sweet and non-sweet foodstuffs: bread wrapped in cookie with cream cheese filling. The name appears to originate from the fact that they resemble melons (which might not be evident from the images) - they do not necessarily contain melon.
