Interesting: open source audio finger printing system AcoustID – MusicBrainz

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/24

On my research list: AcoustID – MusicBrainz.

AcoustID is an acoustic fingerprint system built entirely on open-source technology.

The precursor was this: PUID – MusicBrainz.

Besides the two solutions to the Show missing hard disks in the Finder sidebar problem, I also learned this shortcut today:

open a Finder window and press Shift-Command-C to go to the top level of your computer

Thanks Tophler Kessler!

Barry Kelly on how the Delphi Compiler used to be compiled (via: Google Groups)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/23

not 100% accurate any more (now that the compiler gets more and more LLVM), but still accurate for most of the x86/x64 parts: Barry Kelly explaining how the Delphi compiler is built.

Some more of his posts.

Barry Kelly on “Implementing Closures” in Delphi (via: Google Groups)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/22

It is always nice to see one of the compiler engineers write down how something was implemented.

In this case, Barry Kelly explains in comp.compilers on Implementing Closures in Delphi 2009. The post is about 4.5 years old, but still very relevant.

About 9 months earlier, he participated in a Reddit thread about a similar topic. Worth reading too!
