Fred Hebert on Twitter : “honest programming books… “

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/03

[WayBack] Fred Hebert on Twitter : “honest programming books… “:

  • The CVE Programming Language; ANSI C; Second Edition
  • The Rust Programming Language; The C++ that Feels Like Haskell (this book cannot be borrowed)
  • Librertarian Programming; The Ideology Behind Heartbleed, by a Racist Misogynist Taken Seriously; Revised and Expanded; I don’t think the cops in that video hated anybody. They were just doing their job. And their job included strangling a man to death for having sold untaxed cigarettes.
  • The Go Fuck Yourself Language
  • Continuous Integration; Pushing Retry Until Flaky Test Pass and the Build Succeeds

TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity… paper plane!

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/21


TJoe’s personal favorite in form, function, and simplicity.

Joe Heche is completely right:

  1. Just look at the plane.
  2. Then try to imagine how far it will go.
  3. Now watch the video below.
  4. Then compare it to how to build the longest flying paper plane building videos and flight videos after that.

Isn’t the one on the right brilliant?

Thanks Joe!

Spelling with element symbols from the Periodic table

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/09/11

The [WayBackPeriodic table – Wikipedia contains many symbols.

Combing them allows you to spell word. Not all words, but many of them can be spelled.

So I was glad finding the below article that started with the same fascination I had in chemistry class.

[WayBackSpelling with Elemental Symbols

It has a great explanation of the algorithm, references to computer science literature and a nice Python implementation.
