Touching keyboards

2014-10-15 12:15:18

So I may be using a 20 year old keyboard. But I can't say the design of current available keyboards impress me. Somewhere between then and now there was the "innovation" of adding additional keys, lit keys, and programmable keys. In fact, new boards ...


Trust ErgoTrack

A keyboard is a coder's best friend. Or a gamer. Or any nerd really. It's easy to get hung up on your favorite keyboard too. Like myself, I'm still using a keyboard that's been out of sale for about 20 years now (Trust ErgoTrack!). I still have two o...


Pension pyramids

2014-10-13 12:43:57

Today Dutch news reported about a press release by the association of Dutch employers. They basically concluded that independent contractors should be forced to start saving for their pension. It also proposed more money for schooling should be made ...


2500

When I first heard the rumour of "Minecraft"s potential 2B buy I was a bit taken away. I was surprised because I'm not quite sure what exactly Microsoft hopes to accomplish with this move. And I was surprised that Markus ("notch") would even consider...


The Streamer

2014-08-02 16:05:25

Introducing the first, I think, streaming JavaScript parser in Javascript: The Streamer. Well, streamer is actually a term I've gotten used to using when referring to this build. The name is only used internally since it's really just a transformed r...


Defying some logic

2014-07-30 02:17:46

The elimination of && and || is a deceitfully difficult one. Yet I needed to do this as part of a bigger transformation. In the end, this elimination of expression logic turned out far more difficult than the other t...


Building ze parser

2014-07-28 00:05:30

The source code of ZeParser2 was pretty clean and straightforward. Lately I've been adding some test-related code to it though. I've also been fine tuning the perf of the parser, which includes changing the prototypal code to a big closure approach. ...


Priorities

2014-06-19 15:15:21

As you may or may not know I switched to being a freelancer/contractor a few months ago. One of the perks of this is being your own boss and deciding on your own when you do the work. This blessing can also be a curse if you don't have the discipline...


Dell UltraSharp U2414H

2014-06-19 13:57:04

I recently replaced my dual 22" screens with a dual 24". Ironically, the screens took up about the same space because the bevels were much smaller. It may be the biggest reason I choose to go with the Dell UltraSharp U2414H. The previous screens h...


Switched gnome3 for xfce

2014-06-15 23:33:25

I've been running exclusively linux for about three years now. The only times I've had to look back to windows was for web dev testing on explorer and, of course, gaming. This weekend I migrated to a new box so I had to do a fresh installation of lin...
