It’s literally has been a while since my last post.

Meanwhile I was allowed to play around with:

A lot of JavaScript stuff, right ? (Yes ma’, i’m a JavaScript dude now).

So as you may have noticed that’s why i removed the word ActionScript from the blog title and changed it to Pieces From Everything.

Project Sprouts and Continous Integration

This is more a reminder to myself rather than a complete post because it took me a while to figure it out.

Updated the gems of AsUnit4 as well as the sprout-flashsdk from their repository.

# rakefile.rb

# CI

# Compile the ci swf
mxmlc "bin/#{project}_ci.swf" => :asunit4 do |t|
  t.input           = "src/XMLRunner.as"
  t.source_path     << 'test'
  t.source_path     << 'src'
  t.debug           = true

flashplayer :cruise => "bin/#{project}_ci.swf"


package {

    import flash.display.MovieClip;
    import asunit.core.AsUnitCore;
    import asunit.printers.XMLPrinter;

    public class XMLRunner extends MovieClip {

        public var core: AsUnitCore;

        public var printer: XMLPrinter;

        public function XMLRunner() {

            printer = new XMLPrinter();

            core = new AsUnitCore();
            core.start(AllTests, null, this);

Murphy’s Law

This time it happened .. My wordpress installation broke after a (spontaneous) update (the widgets are completely missing) so i had to switch over to one of the standard templates. I don’t know why i did not followed my own habits this time and made a backup. So in case you’re a returning visitor and wondering about the changed layout you know the reason now.

I’ll try my best to get the old look back up running. And install some automated backup plugins afterwards. (i guess)

Until then..

Update: 2011/11/21
I’ve might found a reason for the breakdown and (hopefully) a solution. As described in [Wordpress Support Forum](http://wordpress.org/support/topic/widgets-disappear-from-admin-after-manual-upgrade “WordPress Support – Widgets are missing after update to 3.2.1″) you might have your

zend.ze1_compatibility_mode = On

in your


file. Changing that to


should be bring the ”’Widgets”’ back.

Because my provider has “not the fastest” support response time and i’m planning to move my domains anyway i don’t know if it’s worth the effort. I’ll give it a try and we’ll see. No later after i moved i’ll do it by myself.
