How to get access to country specific music in Spotify

So, here’s the deal. I am Dutch (yes, with capital D!) and I live in Sweden. Even though I do not live in the Netherlands, I still wish to hear dutch music. Most of the music is online available, however there are a few artists that have not really reached 2014 yet…. or better yet, 2010+. For my case, Gers Pardoel is such an artist. I blame it on the artist, but I must confess that I have little knowledge on how the music industry works; it might just as well be the label, Top Notch. Contacting them about it… well lets face it… they don’t care; I have tried.

Blog updated

The vacations started and I have a little extra time. So I decided to updated my WP-blog, and so I have done.

Cheers,

Dismiss UIPopoverController from subview

Closing an UIPopoverController from the subview, wether it is a UINavigationController any other type of controller can be a little bit of an hassle. I had this problem today and figured it out quickly. I thought of sharing this solution here.

The solution itself is quite simple. The ViewController creating the UIPopoverController is being reused to close it as well. This means that the UIPopoverController needs to be an accessible variable throughout that class.

So, how do we close it? well, this is how:

Getting ANT to work with YUI compressor on OS X

Hi!

A while ago, a colleague introduced me to YUI Compressor. I was really amazed. I knew there were such kind of tools/applications out there, but never really bothered to find our which ones and how they work. So, I though, being a Mac user, that this should work on my mac as well… well… yes and no. Its not so easy getting it up and running, and I want to be able to run an ANT target in my PHP project to get this working.

So, I had some digging around to do, and ended up with my own little guide on how to get it working.
