Multiple Google +1 buttons on one page

Adding many +1 buttons on one page is super-easy, compared to adding many Facebook Like buttons on one page. It’s a matter of inserting one script tag in head section and a little bit of special markup to where ever you want the +1 buttons to appear. For you, who’d much rather see proof right away, here’s the demo page for multiple +1 buttons. If you prefer an example or tutorial of sorts, then … Continue reading Multiple Google +1 buttons on one page

Werewolf’s footprint (Libahundi jälg): Knee deep in mud a.k.a canoeing without water

Out team's track (green) in "Werewolf's footprint" adventure-rogaine in Tuksi

Spring had finally gathered enough guts to show up in Estonia. It was a warm and sunny day on 7th May in Noarootsi Parish. Perfect for a 6h adventure in mud, bogs, marshes, sandy pine forests along the coastline and lots of fresh air. Our three member team was same as in autumn’s Werewolf’s footprint in Padise. This time preparation was faster, we had more experience on which points would be worth of a visit and which not. Did I mention the sun was shining 😀

Libahundi jälg” is an adventure-rogaine competition twice a year – spring and autumn. This spring’s location was Tuksi, Noarootsi, Läänemaa, Estonia. Continue reading Werewolf’s footprint (Libahundi jälg): Knee deep in mud a.k.a canoeing without water

Sneak peek! Tele2’s facelift tommorrow!

Tele2 Estonia is switching to their new look tommorrow. This includes clothes, web, e-store and more. Lots of changes happening. As usual with projects of this scale, there’s never enough time to complete everything. Last week I was invited to join the web team in Tele2 Estonia to help them get the new site ready for launch tonight.
There’s still things to do, but tonight’s the night, no turning back, nowhere to hide, minutes are ticking mercilessly 🙂 I’m going to be brief here, because there’s no time for blabbering. I’ll just give you an early preview. A screenshot of one page. The homepage. Check it out! Continue reading Sneak peek! Tele2’s facelift tommorrow!

“Werewolf’s footprint” (Libahundi jälg) adventure-rogaine in Padise, Estonia

Werewolf’s footprint (Libahundi jälg) was an adventure-rogaine on 23. october. Duration was max. six hours. From aerial perspective maximum distance between all CP’s is 40km. A superb chance to spend the whole day in nature. For this event, we assembled the same awesome team, that endured the Winter Xdream last January in a freezing -29C° temperature. There we traveled 30km in knee deep snow in 6h15m. We knew we would get along well for six hours 🙂 Continue reading “Werewolf’s footprint” (Libahundi jälg) adventure-rogaine in Padise, Estonia

So where the hell have I been? It’s been quiet here.

I’ve been off blogging for many months. Since I mainly blog about sporting events, I’ll reveal the reason now – I injured my knee in July and forced myself not to run for two months. Just to have enough time to really heal it. I started running again in late September. For the two months I replaced running with cycling and swimming. I have to say, my running form did not get hurt as much as I thought it would. Had the pleasure to run 14km in 70 minutes two weeks ago, so yeah, feeling quite good about my endurance… Continue reading So where the hell have I been? It’s been quiet here.

Täiesti kutu pärast Jõulumäe maastikku

Jõulumäe orienteerumiskaartPool liitrit vett läks nagu kerisele finišeerimise järel. Ma olin tõesti väsinud: 20°C leitsak ja tugevalt reljeefne Jõulumäe maastik imesid kõik mahlad välja. No rada oli ka kirjade järgi lausa 8.6km, pikalt rassimist. Ma ei ole sellise reljeefiga pea üldse kokku puutunud. Teist korda elus, eelmise reljeefilaksu sain Rannametsa päevakul. Kaks imelikku viga tegin ja mitmes kohas oleks saanud etapi lühemalt võtta, kuid üldjoontes jäin seekord orienteerumise osaga rahule. Seekord ei jäänud rahule, et ma joosta ei jaksanud. Üleeilne tugev trenn ja rattasõit päevakule jätsid jalgadesse oma jälje ikkagi. Continue reading Täiesti kutu pärast Jõulumäe maastikku

Pärnumaa neljapäevak – Tammiste

Orienteerumiskaart Tammiste 3. juuni 2010 (#1 rada)

No kurat! Ei saa siin Pärnumaal neid lühiraja päevakuid kuidagi klappima. Aasta esimene päevak Valgerannas ei läinud üldsegi sujuvalt ja siis teine lühiraja jooks Niidupargis õnnestus täiesti ära rikkuda. Tegelikult ma ju saan orienteerumisega hakkama küll, aga ei tea, mis just nende lühiradadega juhtub. Vist alustan liiga kiiresti ja ajuollus lõpetab adekvaatse töö. Viimased kaks tavarada Uulus ja Rannametsas on päris hästi läinud. Kuid need on olnud kaugemal, seega olen juba piisavalt energiat kulutanud rattaga kohale sõites ja ei jaksa enam nii kiiresti joosta ning on aega rahulikumalt mõelda. Järgmisel nädalal on tavarada Jõulumäel, sinna on üle 20km. Continue reading Pärnumaa neljapäevak – Tammiste

Estonian domains are unreasonably expensive

I’ve been pondering to register hillarsaare.* domain since January. I’ve always wanted to have hillarsaare.ee (for aesthetic reasons, because I am an Estonian), but registration was available only to companies and non-profits. The rules were about to change though, since Estonian Internet Foundation was working to allow anyone to register domains. Similar to .com registering. So I had to wait.

In late April 2010 they finally uncovered the new prices. 285 EEK for registrars. To be honest, that’s just way too expensive. For the end-user it would mean twice the price of a .com domain + taxes + registrars profit. Seriosly? What are they thinking? So I registered hillarsaare.com for my blog, because there’s no point in paying thrice the money for an Estonian domain.

Pärnumaa neljapäevak – Rannametsa (mai 2010)

Olen jälle Pärnu mail tagasi. Eelmisel nädalal käisin Tallinna päevakutel. Teisipäeval Hiiul ja neljapäeval Paldiskis. Seekord oli Pärnumaa päevak juba tuttavas piirkonnas – samas kandis, kus toimus mai alguses Luitejooks. Teadsin, et maastik on füüsiliselt raske ja päevak Pärnust 36 kilomeetrit eemal. Otsustasin oma füüsilised võimed proovile panna sinna maastikurattaga kohale sõites.

Distantsi ~36 km väntasin 1.5 tunniga. Rannametsas vahetasin kiirelt riided, võtsin kaardi, tankisin vett ja šokolaadi ning lõdvestasin/puhkasin kaarti uurides umbes 15 minutit. Start! Continue reading Pärnumaa neljapäevak – Rannametsa (mai 2010)
