The Code strikes back

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

For the record, I refer to the people known below as “the guys” in an unfavorable manner, and to be fair it’s not just their fault. Lack of communication between us and them and whatever else it is I don’t know has resulted in them appearing to be completely off the charts on the C-axis, and we’re not talking the collaborator end here… At the time the below conversation took place I hadn’t really reflected much on the matter though and put more blame on them than they deserve....

Email Obfuscation Broken

Tuesday, July 8th, 2008

About two weeks ago I tried a really simple way of obfuscating email. To me as a programmer it seemed a little bit naive because this scheme can be easily decoded. But Gmail does such a nice job of getting rid of spam these days anyway, I felt like I didn’t have much to lose. ... Read More

Bitchware and Envyware

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

I really like Ubuntu with apt-get and synaptic to manage and install software, the total freedom to customize and yadayada you’ve all heard it before. However, sometimes the experience is not so pleasant, crazy actually, the first incident happened in the very beginning of my Ubuntu usage about 2 years ago. The culprit then was Beryl (now Compiz Fusion). After installing Beryl on my Nvidia powered desktop machine at home it started to randomly freeze the living shit out of it in a completely random way. It’s a total horror to have the coolest windowing in the world and it isn’t working, so close but yet so far away! That was the first time I realized I was feeling something I had never felt before as a Windows user, or in this context for that matter, envy. ... Read More

Inferred Logic

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

For some time now I’ve felt the need to start a different place where I can write about whatever interests me, not just IT stuff related to what I do professionally. The result is InferredLogic, there I will probably reflect on the current state of humanity, futurism and transhumanism for some time as that is what currently interests me in general. Therefore the Venus 2.0 post has been transferred there.... Read More

My letter to Kathy

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Hello Kathy, I just discovered Creating passionate users, a tad too late it seems. I’m writing this because I really, really like your content and I want to you to start writing again. I’m sure you’ve already got a lot of emotionally supportive letters and so on so I’m not gonna go there, because obviously they didn’t succeed. Instead I’m gonna take a practical and proactive approach.... Read More
