Proguard has long been my favourite obfuscator/optimizer. That doesn't mean I have been faithful. I have cast wishful eyes at other obfuscators.Now my attention has been attracted by jode. Getting close to Jode is painful. Ran into trouble straight away, caused by a missing gnu getopt. This has to b ...

Lighttpd

May 8, 2006, 10:40 a.m. web 0.8

I came across lighttpd only because I decided to try out Ruby on Rails. So far I have not had anything good to say about Ruby. And because one shouldn't say anything unless one has something nice to say, I will refrain from further comments on Ruby. On Lighttpd I do have lot's of nice things to say ...

Goofing up date and time calculations.

No matter how many programming languages I learn (I know quite a few), one thing I will never master is date and time calculations. In times past, I have even called my self the april fool of programming. Name calling isn't the solution to the problem. There isn't a solution!I realized just how bad ...
