Client-side persistence via Flash (26 October 2005)
Investigate if it's possible to persist client-side (HTML) form data in Flash. I got this idea because in the settings of the Flash player it's possible to adjust the size some local storage. After some documentation browsing I discovered persisting data in Flash is done by creating (getting) an object which seems to be persisted automatically. The code is
The thing to do now is create a movie (without UI) that communicates with HTML to persist the form-data by means of the
gmail iSync plugin (22 October 2005)
It would be really nice if my address book on my Mac got synchronized with my GMail address book. It shouldn't be that difficult. I found some documentation. There is some kind of GMail API, although it only retrieves address book entries at the moment. And at Apple is seems you can do something with iSync with their Sync Services.
Anyways, I probably won't find time to implement this. If you do, please notify me. And while we're busy, also look into MozBackup to backup Mozilla related data with iSync.
Wiki Flow Charts (22 October 2005)
Another application the world is waiting for ;-) is flow charting for Wiki's. I think the usage of flow charts would enrich Wiki's enormously. Basically, a flow chart consists of shapes (rectangles, circles) with text, connected by lines. Imagine the following "markup":
Of course, before it's real usable to normal people, a lot of work has to be done. Maybe a wysiwyg editor needs to be made, but I just couldn't believe nothing exists yet. I might implement something...
Resources: SVG in HTML introduction.
I found a hint of somebody wanting flow chars in their wiki's.
RegExp.NET (7 August 2003)
The actual idea is to integrate this with the .NET framework; create a regular expression language and a compiler. This code can for simplicity be compiled to C# and .NET framework regular expressions.

Deploy tool (18 March 2003)
Yes, that would be very nice (I personally forget somehow to upload some files...).
IIS and Rendezvous (16 March 2003)
Wouldn't it be great to have an option to advertise webserver and virtual directories through Rendezvous. For virtual directories, the Application Name could be used as Rendezvous-name.
About this web-log (16 March 2003)
This web-log is meant for keeping track of my ideas. Because I have so many ideas, I can't implement them all. I now try to organize them, and keep prioritizing them. This log still needs mechanisms like last-updated, categories and some others, but this will do for now.
