On the importance of KISS in Software Engineering.
Inklings in April 2005
Doing it well.
Even if you don’t like cats, if this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, you have no heart.
An Eclipse plugin in-the-making that aims to make it as easy to navigate around large projects as small ones. Read the paper too.
Post snippets of code. Sort by tags, people, people and tags, &c..
You know, I just might.
Attention.XML is an XML file (specifically an XOXO file) that contains an outline of feeds/blogs, where each feed itself is an outline, and each post is also an outline under the feed. This hierarchical outline structure is then annotated with per-feed and per-post information which captures such information as, the last time the feed/post was accessed, the duration of time spent on the feed/post, recent times of feed/post access, user set (dis)approval of posts, etc.
You mean why are the only guys you find non-threatening the ones with no possible ulterior motives to sleep with you? Yeah, the mind boggles.
Sums it up, really. :-)
Now really, if you don’t understand them after this I’d give up programming.
Now that is useful.
More neatness. The basic idea behind this is that neighbouring areas of the similar luminescense will typically be the same hue. I think there’s interesting applications of this to image compression.
Jim Minatel, a Wrox editor, explains how you’d convince him to get your book published. And there was me under the impression that Wrox will publish any old crap they can get out the door in under a month… ;-)
“But it better be a chaste hug or my bitch instincts will take over and you’ll be hurled into traffic.” “Caveat Amplexus. Gotcha.” Jeph’s got to have one of the best webcomics out there right now. My only complaint is the distinct lack of Pintsize recently (that last one with him was filler so it doesn’t count).
Another fellow RISC OS user! I must get back into the scene some time.
Just to make things harder, it chooses the worst possible block to throw at you each time.
Yup, the whole book. Go and take a look. For those who’d dismiss this because it’s to do with Lisp, I’d like to point out that “conventional” programming languages are becoming more and more like Lisp all the time. Lisp, in one form or another, is the language of the future.
