Aftermath of memory management / designing for mobile / the need of something better

The aftermath… of all my chasing is that I got nothing. You heard me right. I spent days figuring out what was wrong just to receive one hell of a slap to the face that the OS doesn’t necessarily claim the memory back. But, I also noticed that memory started to be freed after changing… Continue reading Aftermath of memory management / designing for mobile / the need of something better

Fun with Python3 and PyQT

I guess I should start by saying that I’m using PyQt4 mostly because… well, I don’t have an excuse, just pure laziness when I started writing the code.

Another take at const-correctness and “optimizing” code.

Most of what I did today was cleaning code… or refactoring code. I wasn’t happy with the current codebase as in there were a lot of copies of strings being made instead of simply making references and that’s what made it so unsatisfying as I was duplicating codes of data. One of the aspects of… Continue reading Another take at const-correctness and “optimizing” code.
