If you don't already know it and it's #song, just head straight over to #youtube and search for the #music and it's #video. (I probably put a #link down below as #comment for you anyways.;)
What not so many people might know is, that Martin is #working on a new Marble Machine, called Marble Machine X or short #MMX... And this time, he's not only just #building #parts right away as they're needed and the #inspiration flows .. but he actually put a lot of engineering effort and top quality #machining into it... With help from lots of #people all around the world.
Just like in this #clip, where he explains some #details about the #plywood #gears he's going to use:

Oh by the way .. i'm binge watching his Marble Machine X #playlist since literally days... You totally should watch it too... IMHO! ;)
Building Marble Machine X - All Episodes in One Playlist
Now I have dropped the PHP files into the GitHub repository. I haven't put the CSS files or the folders there yet as I can't figure out how to have folders in the repo (maybe you can't do that).
You can see it here: Fumetti
The PHP scripts (which are the ones making up the website of Phill from GCHQ) works by simply dropping the pages in the right folder with the right file-name and then the site fixes everything else. There is no cumbersome database. All data is contained within the file-name of the page-image, namely page number and title.
First I need to make a good README file so people know what they are looking at.
Secondly I just want to clean the code to make it more logical and minimalistic. Content, functionality and HTML have to be separated as much as possible (the latest update where I added multilanguage support was fast and messy. I just had to get it over with so I could return to making the comic). PHP is often like that, code, markup and content in one big cauldron, but if I can, it would be nice to have a single page with the multilanguage translations, a couple of pages with the design (including the horror of CSS) and some pages with functionality.
In the process I also need to change the Danish variable names to English and provide comments in English (right now they are mixed between Danish notes to self and some proper English comments).
What has to be made in the long run is probably a small user interface so people who are absolutely non-tech can go about it. Should be doable.
Then maybe a UI for designing the site... a bit more work, but also doable.
I want to keep it as simple as possible and there will never be functionality like comments. It should just be a way to put a readable comic on the internet.

I am close to having too many irons in the fire - again. commercial work, family and side projects are also eating my time, but I have decided that finally making my website available for others is a good thing to do now. First of all I need to use it for two other projects so it would be a good time to optimize the code. I also want other people to be able to use it - I have talked to other comic artists and the feedback I am getting is that they could use exactly a solution like this. Simple and durable.
There are a lot of things that can be done to improve it. So what is the first thing you do?
You make a logo.
I am pretty sure that this is not the normal order of things you see in most software projects, but you will always do things in your mother language first and I am not fluent in code, I am fluent in images,
Fumetti is the Italian word for comics - you can compare to the English word, fumes, and probably get the meaning. The speak bubbles looks like small clouds of fume :)
I choose a art Noveau Italian style font because of the Italian name, instead of the normal comic style font - too boring and too obvious. Rather a slightly confusing reference to Bugatti and espresso than just blending in with the rest.
Today I will discuss with my brother, who is a data scientist how I go about this GitHub thing. I still need to get comfortable with branches, commits and pull requests.

My comic site for Phill from GCHQ is a small, very simple site made in PHP. It has no database, but organise the comic-pages from the file names.
I always wanted to make it available as open source, GPL or other license, but I'm a little in doubt about which license I should use. Any suggestions and arguments why?

Abstract: Is there an opportunity to radically increase access to scientific instrumentation, while improving the quality and diversity of research tools by harnessing the power of collaborative innovation in the development of FOSH (free and open source hardware)? We propose that there is now a further opportunity to secure added value from FOSH for science using a network to network approach. By combining existing national and international networks with a specific focus on scientific FOSH, expertise, information and facilities can be shared for mutual benefit. The community is nascent, but enhanced international cooperation would catalyze its potential to 1) enable a broader audience to access the necessary tools for experimental science including increasing equitable access to high-quality, hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education, 2) enhance access and control for instruments among scientists and 3) strengthen research collaboration.

For the past few years, Microsoft has meaningfully increased participation in the open source software (OSS) community, becoming one of the world’s largest supporters of OSS projects. Today we’re announcing that we intend to adopt the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility for our customers and less fragmentation of the web for all web developers.
As part of this, we intend to become a significant contributor to the Chromium project, in a way that can make not just Microsoft Edge — but other browsers as well — better on both PCs and other devices.
Making the web better for many audiences
Working with open source is not new for Microsoft Edge. Our mobile browser has been based on open source from its beginnings over a year ago. We’ve also used open source for various features of Microsoft Edge on the desktop (e.g. Angle, Web Audio, Brotli) and we’ve begun making contributions to the Chromium project to help move browsing forward on new ARM-based Windows devices.
Our goal is to do this in a way that embraces the well-established open source model that’s been working effectively for years: meaningful and positive contributions that align to long-standing, thoughtfully designed architecture, and collaborative engineering. Together we seek the best outcome for all people who use the web across many devices.
Ultimately, we want to make the web experience better for many different audiences. People using Microsoft Edge (and potentially other browsers) will experience improved compatibility with all web sites, while getting the best-possible battery life and hardware integration on all kinds of Windows devices. Web developers will have a less-fragmented web platform to test their sites against, ensuring that there are fewer problems and increased satisfaction for users of their sites; and because we’ll continue to provide the Microsoft Edge service-driven understanding of legacy IE-only sites, Corporate IT will have improved compatibility for both old and new web apps in the browser that comes with Windows.
Microsoft Edge + OSS: a new emphasis for Microsoft
Over the next year or so, we’ll be making a technology change that happens “under the hood” for Microsoft Edge, gradually over time, and developed in the open so those of you who are interested can follow along. The key aspects of this evolution in direction are:
1. We will move to a Chromium-compatible web platform for Microsoft Edge on the desktop. Our intent is to align the Microsoft Edge web platform simultaneously (a) with web standards and (b) with other Chromium-based browsers. This will deliver improved compatibility for everyone and create a simpler test-matrix for web developers.
2. Microsoft Edge will now be delivered and updated for all supported versions of Windows and on a more frequent cadence. We also expect this work to enable us to bring Microsoft Edge to other platforms like macOS.
Improving the web-platform experience for both end users and developers requires that the web platform and the browser be consistently available to as many devices as possible. To accomplish this, we will evolve the browser code more broadly, so that our distribution model offers an updated Microsoft Edge experience + platform across all supported versions of Windows, while still maintaining the benefits of the browser’s close integration with Windows.
3. We will contribute web platform enhancements to make Chromium-based browsers better on Windows devices. Our philosophy of greater participation in Chromium open source will embrace contribution of beneficial new tech, consistent with some of the work we described above. We recognize that making the web better on Windows is good for our customers, partners and our business – and we intend to actively contribute to that end.
What happens next
If you’re a Microsoft Edge customer, there is nothing you need to do as the Microsoft Edge you use today isn’t changing. If you are a web developer, we invite you to join our community by installing preview builds when they’re available and staying current on our testing and contributions. We expect to have a preview build ready in early 2019 for you to try for yourself.
If you’re part of the open-source community developing browsers, we invite you to collaborate with us as we build the future of Microsoft Edge and contribute to the Chromium project. A few near-term examples will include continued work on ARM64 support, web accessibility, and taking advantage of other hardware features like touch support.
We look forward to sharing more details in the future as we test and learn. We are excited about the opportunity to be an even-more-active part of this community and bring the best of Microsoft forward to continue to make the web better for everyone.
