For both server and website developing, I usually use Xampp’s Apache to create a localhost server. However, I hate to put my important files in the htdocs inside Apache. Instead I would rather put the folder inside Documents, and make a link to htdocs.

First, create a symbolic link from your actual folder to htdocs. For example, ln -s /Users/Nicholas/Documents/Xampp Workspace /Applications/Xampp/xamppfiles/htdocs/nicholas.

However, this is not done because the owner of your directory is Nicholas, but not “nobody”. Also, we cannot change the folder’s owner to nobody as this is actually an illegal owner. So what we gonna do is add Nicholas as the user in Apache. [Caution: This can actually create a security issue on your computer, since now the Xampp can access files of the user Nicholas]

To do that, add “user Nicholas” to the end /Applications/Xampp/xamppfiles/etc/httpd.conf. Then restart Xampp.

Actually, this website was my portfolio webpage before becoming a wordpress. It is moved to here: nicholasworkshop.com/portfolio. Using wordpress, I put the old webpage aside and always forgot to transfer the information from it to the front page. Anyway, I hope this can remind me of the projects and webpages I created.

Today, I moved my nicholasworkshop.wordpress.com to my owned domain nicholasworkshop.com, integrated with my old portfolio website. Thanks to my subscribers, my blog has been having a steady viewing rate over time. However, all those traffics went to wordpress.com as the blog was hosted there. To redirect them back to my domain, I have been preparing the things needed for a long time.

As a record, I had my blog in BlogSpot and WordPress before, and now they are redirected to nicholasworkshop.

Anyways, it is finally here and thank you for checking out my blog!

It’s quite often for a developer to make use of the user agent to determine what browser does a user used, especially for those who develop web services and websites. Recently I found a website which has a huge database of mobile device information, including the user agent string and even the functions supported in the device browser.

Caffeine has been a very useful app to instantly disable or enable the screensaver on mac. At least for me, I am using multiple computers in office and all of them except the one I am using will usually get idle. Getting into screensaver, however, is bad sometimes especially I was reading from that screen and type things on another screen, and not to mention the password input after the screen lock. Well anyway, I highly recommend it.

Mac

On mac, we can install it easily with the app store.

Ubuntu

But in ubuntu, it is not available on the software center. But you can still get it through command line. Turn on terminal and input the following one by one.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:caffeine-developers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install caffeine
