Hiatus

written on August 14, 2011

For the outsider it might appear that I kind of abandoned or rather neglected this blog, but this is far from reality.

I did a bunch of awesome stuff in the past couple of months and certainly have a bunch of interesting topics that I'm going tackle during the next few weeks in order to get back on track and clear my records.

Here's a small run-down of some side-projects I've been hacking on during all these months when I didn't feel like working on Lera3D.

Olde New

Also, as you may noticed (if you are not reading this from an RSS reader), I switched over to a more compact, minimalistic and content centric layout.

This also means that I'll be able to focus on what matters the most the content.

I got rid of the archive and tag pages as they had low traffic which just didn't justify having them at all. Who the hell is going to browse your posts by tags nowadays?

The comments are also gone (bye, bye little Troll creatures) so you'll be forced to think twice before your dirty little fingers hit the keyboard.

Much nicer and richer syntax highlighting:

def HelloWorld():
    print('Hello World')
class HelloWorld
{
    public:
        HelloWorld(void) {}
}

Or just pre:

$ whoami

Much nicer quotes:

Now, if Lahaina Divers just realized that they should tell people from Northern Europe to show up at 7:30 (instead of 7AM for the tardy people who don't have that Germanic "Ve vill be on time" mentality), and if the pull requests I got had been a bit higher quality, it would all have been perfect.

I'm going to discuss the idea of a blog without comments in a dedicated post and a few slightly more philosophical topics soonish, so stay tuned.
