Chemical Kinetics Solver Updated

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Thu, 01/24/2013 - 12:24

After a fair bit of time, my Chemical Kinetics Solver has been updated.

The changes are primarily "under the hood", but some changes in input handling are also included with the update. In addition, work on a more detailed documentation has begun, however it is quite empty as of now.

The project can be found at

Website Structure Improvement

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Mon, 12/17/2012 - 14:29

Sadly there is not a lot of new content to publish, however I have spent some time improving the layout and structure of the website.

The number of menu entries in the main menu has been reduced and the navigation menu has become more important. While this may mean more clicks, it has made the website structure a bit more consistent and logical.

Dependent on time and mood I will potentially roll out further updates to my website - which should include content as well besides further restructuring.


As usual, feedback is always welcome.

New Old Images On Their Way

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Sun, 11/04/2012 - 20:03

So it has finally happened, I have started to sit down for a massive updating spree.

My gallery is now being expanded with an extensive selection of photographs from my early days as well as some new images. As a preparatory step, first all existing images were downsized on the webserver, this should improve loading speed for uncached images and allows me to present a significantly larger amount of images.

Server Recovery on its Way

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Sat, 10/27/2012 - 21:02

So, my server is working again - to some extent. The main OS drive was swapped, the server recovered, a drive added via USB... the database is being duplicated and the neyxt step is to remove the offending drive and think about the next step...

I guess I will need to buy another 2TB drive as I really don't want to go through the hassle of getting WHS v1 (based on Server 2003) to work with larger drives...

Holiday Over... - And Bad News For Me

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Thu, 10/25/2012 - 23:33

So, I took a little holiday with hopes that I would update and restructure my website - well, it turned out this didn't happen... not in a significant way by any means. I modified some of my pages, changed the academia section... and then stopped halfway through trying to figure out how best to display mathematics (the image version one sometimes sees is ugly... but relying on a third party service to display LaTeX doesn't sound like a good plan either...)

Well... things to do...


Fotomoto removed

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Sat, 10/13/2012 - 13:23

At some point I will need to make changes to my gallery, expanding the amount of images but also switching from full sized images to lower resolution files to reduce the associated server load. I do not yet know when I get the time to update my gallery, but as a first step, fotomoto has been removed.

Any requests for image prints will need to go through Artflakes or 500px. Having said that, the nature of the zenphoto setup was also not in favour of using fotomoto. As filenames are obscured direct links aren't created which makes it, to put it mildly, rather messy.

Whitewall closing Galleries & Spam

Submitted by Detlev Conrad … on Sun, 09/02/2012 - 21:40

So, Whitewall has decided that they will no longer offer personal galleries, I have thus removed my link to their website (and my profile there), also because I have no images in their art market which they wish to focus on. Technically fotomoto uses Whitewall in Europe and I believe this service will continue to be available in the future.
