New year, new software

Instead of adapting the old layout to modern times, I preferred to change the software again and use a ready-made template. No, I don’t think that saved me time. But at least that’s how I got to know Hugo.

Gibberish Bookmarklet

Most people are able to read and understand text, even if it is all gibberish. The first and last letter need to stay the same as the correct spelling. The letters in between can be ordered any way and it remains readable. See: Most poplee are able to read and userdatnnd txet, even if it is all gibsierbh.

New Blogging Software

Had to change the blogging software again. Blogger isn't offering FTP publishing anymore and I was searching for months to find a fitting solution. In the end I "just" wrote a new blogging software for myself. I have no intention in publishing it, because there are so many blogging engines out there, that you don't need another one which only barely fits your own requirements. Lessons learned: You can't rely on any free service on the net....

99 Bottles of Beer in Factor

99 Bottles of Beer in Factor. A naïve implementation from someone who is just beginning to (re)learn the language and doesn't want to (nor can) show off the flashy features, like so many other examples of 99 Bottles of Beer. USING: combinators io kernel make math math.parser sequences ; IN: 99bottles : bottles ( n -- str ) { { 0 [ "no more bottles" ] } { 1 [ "1 bottle" ] } [ number>string " bottles" append ] } case ; : verse-0 ( n -- ) drop "No more bottles of beer on the wall, no more bottles of beer....

Flash Gordon and NoSQL

No matter if they say that MongoDB got its name from "humongous", for me it's the planet Mongo from Flash Gordon.

Benchmarks are merciless

JavaScript vs. PythonPHP vs. Python A number 1/4 for A vs. B means that B is 4 times slower than A. The Computer Language Benchmarks Game is more a community benchmark than a programming language benchmark. You get some ballpark figures that confirm what you already know beforehand: C++ is faster than Ruby :-) But it's still depressing to see that a current implementation of JavaScript is faster than Python.
