The inadequacy of HTML, delving into C, and pondering remote jobs

I’ve been working with HTML in low-level languages like C/C++ and I must say that it’s been a rather frustrating experience. One would think that the task I’m doing should have been done ages ago, since the conception of the project. Alas, that’s not quite right. What you fail to realize is that you should… Continue reading The inadequacy of HTML, delving into C, and pondering remote jobs

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.

VPS + SSH bruteforce attacks

Out of nowhere I had a sudden urge to know “how many people have tried to brute force my VPS?”. The thing about these brute force attacks is that they are all automated and you can’t really filter out “manual” attacks.

Home, sweet home.

There are a few things I’ve been wanting to write about. I guess I should start by saying that a new Ghost theme is under way for this site.
