Since Ubuntu One close at the 31th of July I needed to find a new service to backup and synchronize my files. A lot of my friends use Dropbox or Google Drive, but both of these services only use one folder to sync, which is the opposite of what I want. I want to choose folders spread out on my computer, and sync them, like I could in Ubuntu One. And that is where SpiderOak comes in, as they offer the same functionality, but with more features (that I have not had time to look at yet). I’ve only be using it for a couple of days, but it looks promising. Also as long as I can sync two folder between my network of computers I’m happy.
So if your looking for a backup service (they also have a zero-knowledge policy, which is good) I would recommend to take a look at SpiderOak. The free version only give you 2 GB of storage, but with the promotional code “worldbackupday” you end up with 5 GB, which fits my need for now.
Another post at my developer blog post over at Fifth Floor Studio.
I got into Android development while I was playing a lot of Heroclix and was tired off dragging a rule book with me all the time. Heroclix Rules which is my main app with more then 30 000 downloads, is a collection of most of the rules, and I’ve updated the design once since the release back in December 2010.
I’m a big fan of Kickstarter, and a game I helped kickstart (called TinyKeep) tipped me about a game called TerraTech, featuring robot battles where you need to build, harvest, and control your own robot. First I thought it was something like Robot Arena, but it wasn’t, but it was something nearly better, or at least on the same line.
Check out the video below or download a alpha-demo over at IndieDB. To get it to run on Linux you need to use Ubuntu. It’s Unity.
I like to keep my random stuff and personal stuff seperated from my developer stuff. So that is why I have a different blog called Fifth Floor Studio, where I post about my project and code that I find interesting. It is not widely updated, but, sometimes. And now is one of those sometimes.
Head over to Fifth Floor Studio to read the latest post.
Tag Story has been listed on the sideboard for quiet some time, but nothing have been written about it. I’m not going into details about the project (as you can read more about it here or here), but in short it is a framework and an app to help people get out and interact with the world.
I was checking out tumblr when I saw this quote:
the commercials with the man who has a string puooet wife and child need to go
So I had to Google to find out what these commercials where. And let me tell you, they are hilarious. Of course they are playing on typical USA stereotypes and all that, but man, they are funny.
I’ve posted all the ones I could find here:

My blog has kinda been like this image for the weeks. Sorry for that, but I’ve been quite busy and a bit lazy.
So, you might be wondering what I’ve been up to? Most of the time have gone to renovating my apartment, because I wanted to sell it before the summer. Something I managed to do last week. There was a lot to do since I hadn’t done that much since I moved in for nearly six years ago. I ended up painting nearly all of the rooms, and tearing down the wallpaper and plaster (or what ever it is called in English) one room. I got pretty tired and cranky from all the renovating, but it turned out pretty ok, plus I got a sum I’m happy with from the sale. So I guess I shouldn’t complain.
Other then that I’ve finally finished two other Android projects. I’m not going to write about them here, but rather try to make another post about them. Maybe later tonight or tomorrow. I’ve also started some other projects that I’ll tell you more about in the same post.
