Tools used - Tól sem notuđ eru
Today I use HtmlEd32 editor designing the web pages, its a simple text editor with html menu/toolbar shortcuts.
I also use some additional tools at complex operations and would like to mention a good tool called
ActiveX Control pad from Microsoft, its expecially handy designing with ActiveX and VbScript.
Then I use some graphic programs processing pictures, like Microsoft Photo editor, a part of Office, and
Photofiltre, a good free graphic program.
IrfanView is a small and handy program, to view pictures, create thumbnails and more.
Bookmark wizard is a good program that can read Favorites and save it to html document.
Í dag nota ég HtmlEd32 editor viđ ađ hanna síđurnar, texta editor međ html flýtileiđum.
Einnig nota ég ýmis hjálpartól viđ flóknari ađgerđir og vil ég helst nefna skemmtilegt tól sem nefnist
ActiveX Control Pad og er frá Microsoft, ţađ er sérstaklega hentugt til ađ hanna ActiveX og VBscript.
Ţá hef ég notađ ýmis grafik forrit viđ vinnslu mynda eins og Microsoft Photo Editor sem fylgir međ Office pakkanum
og Photofiltre, gott grafíkforrit af netinu. Ennfremur nota ég IrfanView, lítiđ og handhćgt forrit, til ađ skođa myndir,
búa til thumbnails o.fl. Ţá nota ég líka Bookmark wizard, hentugt forrit
sem getur lesiđ Favorites og vistađ sem html skrá.

Flutt úr favorites á vefinn og reynt ađ minnka favorites
Later in jul. 2008 - I have managed to set up my own domain. Flakkari is a icelandic word and means someone who travels a lot without
a goal, not meaning I travel without planning but travel without means. It also means a portable hard disk which suits well
for my computer enthusiasm. The biggest problem have been to find a good name for this site. But stumbling onto flakkari
sounded nice, it is easy both in icelandic and english. I initially wanted to have a icelandic domain, like .is, but soon
found it too expensive compared to other domains, which is sad.
08. jul. 2008 - Centrum had moved to Síminn (Icelandic telecom) and service declined. Visibility was small and possibility of increasing
the page was expensive. I started to look around and a friend recommended Siteground. They offered good space at reasonable price
and a own domain. The main problem was that .is was not possible.
But I took the change and founded flakkari.net at Siteground, where the page is today.
08. júl. 2008 - Centrum fluttist yfir til Símans og ţjónustu hrakađi stöđugt. Sýnileiki var lítill og lítill möguleiki á stćkkun
nema međ miklum kostnađi. Ég fór ađ líta í kringum mig og var bent á Siteground af kunningja. Ţeir buđu upp á nóg pláss
á hagstćđu verđi og eigin domain. Ađal gallinn var ađ ekki var .is í bođi.
Ég sló samt til og stofnađi flakkari.net, ţar sem síđan er í dag.
may/jun. 1998 - Page history is started, only in icelandic. Pictures added to computerpage and number of frames reduced,
koala bear got hidden links with VbScript. Some pictures corrected that were in too big frame.
mai/jún. 1998 - Saga síđunnar hefur göngu sína. Bćtt inn myndum á tölvusíđu og römmum fćkkađ, koala björn fćr felutengingar
međ VBscript. Lagfćrđar nokkrar myndir sem voru í of stórum ramma
19. may 1998 - Public appearance of the web. Then if you knew the address you could access the web publicly.
It was hosted at Midheimar/Centrum as khr (www.centrum.is/~khr).
19. maí 1998 - Opinber birting síđunnar Ţá var hćgt ađ nálgast hana ef menn vissu slóđina.
Ţá var hún vistuđ hjá Miđheimum/Centrum undir khr.
apr. 1998 - Then I started thinking of refreshing the web a little. And as I finally increased some part of my computer I also bought
a 14,4 kbps modem and got an access to the internet from home.
apr. 1998 - Ţá fór ég ađ spá í ađ hressa upp á síđuna. Og lét ég verđa ađ ţví um leiđ og ég
stćkkađi ađra hluta tölvunnar ađ eitt módem fylgdi međ í kaupunum, og auđvitađ ađgangur ađ neti.
Used at work - Notkun vegna vinnu
When I was working at Research liasion office I developed the page further, mostly by increasing links related to computers and work.
Same development continued working for Landsbanki (National bank of Iceland). I used to travel a lot and it was good to have access to links central.
The web was usually set up on computer accessible from local web. But there were always desire to have own access.
From that on I start to think of showing the web to public.
Er ég var ađ vinna hjá Rannsóknarţjónustu Háskólans ţróađi ég síđuna áfram, ađallega međ ađ fjölga linkum tengdum tölvu og vinnu.
Sama ţróun hélt áfram ţegar ég var hjá Landsbankanum. Mađur var oft mikiđ á ferđinni og gott ađ hafa ađgang ađ linkum miđlćgt.
Síđan var ţví yfirleitt vistuđ á tölvu sem ađgangur var á innraneti. En ţađ var alltaf löngun í ađ vera međ eigin link.
Út frá ţví fór ég ađ huga ţví ađ birta síđuna opinberlega.
School experiments - Tilraunir í skóla
Initially I started with a web page in school, when I was in TVÍ (Computer college of Icelandic Business school, now Reykjavik university)
it has been around the year 1995. There I set up a web page that in fact were just favorites.
There was one course about html programming and there we wrote a cgi script to accept request from html page and show reply.
Upphaflega byrjađi ég međ síđu í skólanum er ég var í TVÍ (Tölvuháskóli Verslunarskóla Íslands, núna Háskólinn Reykjavík)
ţađ hefur veriđ um 1995. Mađur setti náttúrlega saman síđu sem var í raun bara favorites.
Síđan var einn kúrs um html forritun og ţar skrifuđum viđ cgi forrit til ađ taka viđ beiđni frá html síđu og birta svar.
