single use site

2009.05.23 | internets, randomness, site | 3 comments »

i have a soft spot for “single serving website” (i.e. websites that provide only one single piece of information). a few months back i had an idea for one of those pages – using it as a way for me to learn a few things, i wasnt able to get it to work out but this time i was able to get another idea from 0 to working in a few hours.

open?

it can be difficult to remember exactly when all the super markets close here in helsinki – all sundays in spring they are closed, then they open up – but not the next sunday after that (as its finnish mothers day). then they open up again. can cause some confusion.

a few hours spent messing with phpicalendar, its template, css and javascript files. its not perfect, its not even all that useful to pretty much everyone on the planet – but thats what the internet is all about. ishelsinkiopen.com

gloriousily fed up with music as of late. i took to clearing off several gb of music from itunes. after five years of using last.fm i actually started to use the last.fm recommendation station that it had waiting for me. fantastic stuff. as are the mixes on kinosport.tv (a recent import into the world of helsinki)
