JS10k!

2018-03-27

Wow how time flies. Did you know the next JS1k will be the tenth year (!!) to run this competition. That's [i]amazing[/i]. To celebrate this I figured we should go all in so for the next edition the whole thing will be themed around ten. This mean...


Perfect linux featherlight

2018-02-12

I've been using my Asus Zenbook for about a year and a half now. And while I'm still happy with the choice back then, I'm very disappointed with Asus. I feel they could be more pro-active in getting linux support for this particular touchpad. It's re...


Overzealous regexes

2017-11-25

Today I was trying to solve a parsing problem with regular expressions. Yes, I know. Moving on, the regular expression should be able to skip JS strings and then check for a particular character afterwards. I had that working fine but when I was tryi...


Secret Parent Club 2.0

The hardware talk

2017-06-01

I sometimes write about hardware but usually only when I discard it or something. So let's talk about hardware setup and what works for me. I can be pretty particular in my hardware choice, at least in some areas. Let me tell you all about my current...


Regex Parsing

2017-05-12

And now you have two problems. Nah, don't worry. I would never use regular expressions for a parser. This post is about parsing regular expression literals. And not for deep analysis or anything but rather as part of my new parser. In fact, just as p...


Hearthstone suggestions

2017-05-01

I've played Hearthstone for five months now (and got Legend last month). There are obviously some things I like but also some things I don't like. Rather than just shit on the game, I'd like to offer some suggestions that I feel may improve the game....
