  • C++ Pitfall prevention Cheatsheet

    I posted this also on my "old" blog. Please be good in judging it, I did it for a C++ course in Espoo. C++ Cheatsheet

    Edit: One thing not discussed in the cheatsheet, but at least from my point of view a error-prone area is the const-modifier. I found a good explanation about it and its various uses and meanings here.

  • FranzK in Reutlingen, neues altes Kulturzentrum

    Gestern Abend habe ich meine Zeit in Reutlingen sinnvoll genutzt um bei der offiziellen Einweihung des FranzK ( abkürzung für französisches Kino ) dabei zu sein. Der Abend war erwartungsgemäß großartig, mit den vielen Leuten die man so kennt, aber wirklich beeindruckt war ich von dem in meinen Augen sehr gelungenen Umbau. Nun gut, das Nepomuk sieht eigentlich immer noch so aus wie gewohnt, der Raum wirkt jetzt aber etwas größer und im Moment noch etwas kahl, aber ich bin zuversichtlich das Poster und Plakate da ihr übriges tun werden.

    Das alte Foyer, heute die Clubbühne, wurde auch komplett renoviert, besitzt jetzt eine Lüftung ( ein Feature auf das man scheinbar sehr stolz ist dort ) und macht insgesamt nen durchdachten Eindruck. Und auch die Veranstaltungen die auf dem Plan stehen machen Lust auf die ein oder andere Party hier.


    Zu guter letzt muss ich einfach noch den Webauftritt loben, selten so etwas schönes gesehen. Gefällt mir sehr gut, zu sehen hier. Im übrigen ein gutes Beispiel dafür, wie man ein Design komplett durchziehen kann, Homepage, Flyer, Beschriftungen. Sehr sehr nett!

  • Facebook Programming Challenge

    I just read some very interesting programming challenges located at facebook. Though time is certainly a precious resource, I consider it crucial for a programmer, especially if the claim is to be a good one, to take some challenges from time to time, be it implementing a complex algorithm or solve puzzles like the facebook ones. 

    Time is a limited resource. So I'll better hurry in doing something, otherwise I'll be forever stuck in the 80% completion state with too many projects around here. 

    By the way, I'm totally unsure whether to choose git or svn for my next project. Any tips?

  • Rails and Merb to merge and form Rails 3

    Just read that article. Interesting, i worked with both of them and was equally impressed, so I definitely encourage this evolution. 

    Jumblesale, the project discussed a few posts earlier, is also based on Rails2, and it just works.

  • Microsoft selling Antivirus-Package for XP

    this is so wrong. Really. Imagine that: you go buy a car, and a few month later the manufacturer calls you and offers you in fact working brakes. Indeed working, no need to bother about stopping your vehicle, finally a safe ride. 

    And it's just no different selling an anti-virus package for your own Operating System. It's naughty to offer it as a seperate product, as it simply provides a functionality that everybody expects from an operating system. An operating system is simply a means to run you programs, solve problems etc., but the users shouldn't have to care about viruses or anything alike. And because it seems to me that Microsoft messed with users habits long enough now, many people finally accept that Windows needs a Virus Scanner, because it's vulnerable by design and incapable of handling threats reliably on its own. Sad but true, the majority of users is still unaware of better-working alternate operating systems. Ubuntu runs just fine on my mothers notebook. Mac OS everywhere else here. And everybody is happy. And we are not buying Anti-Virus Packages. Score.
