Helsinki Sightseeing Tram Audio Guide

The 3T tram runs in a figure of eight around some of the top tourist sights of Helsinki. I have created an enhanced audio guide for this tour. It features an audio commentary and photos of the key landmarks. You can catch the tram and play this recording on an iPod, MP3 player or portable audio player to experience the sights and sounds of this historic vibrant city.Watch a demo and download the guide.

Mac OS X Leopard Transparent Menu Bar Fix

So Mac OS X Leopard is out soon. It looks a good update, but allot of people have been complaining about the new transparent menu bar.Leopard Menu BarAs you can see it makes the menu bar less clear than before, and Im sure it could get annoying especially if you have poor eye sight or are using a laptop in a bright environment. So there are hacks and mods to fix it.But Wait! There is a much easier and safer option.Just download the wallpaper I have created and use that. Problem solved. It has a blank menu bar at the top which will show through and should cancel out the transparency. It is designed for 1440 x 900 screens so you will need to create your own if you have a differently sized screen. I have set the rest of the desktop to a professional (and boring) 25% grey. Feel free to change the grey to your favourite wallpaper in an image editing program. I don’t have Leopard yet so I haven’t been able to test my idea. Please let me know if it works.

Learn Finnish Mobile Phone Game

I have just finished developing version 1.0 of Flash Finnish. It is a mobile game to help people learn Finnish. It is quite a short game at the moment, but I plan to expand it soon with more words and more complex questions. If your phone supports Flash Lite 2.0 games you can download it for free. I have tested it on a Nokia N95, if it works on your phone please let me know so I can add it to the list of supported devices.phonecap3.jpg
