Trine Revival Club

Vi er en del Århus-dataloger, der lærte Trine som det første programmeringssprog på studiet (det andet, hvis man tæller Rasmus med). Trine døde sidst i 90erne, da man gik over til java i stedet. Men det var nu et dejligt programmeringssprog – jeg holdt især af de rekursive typer. Der findes vel ingen trinecompilere til moderne maskiner, og det er nu trist. Jeg kom derfor til at overveje, om det ikke ville give mening at lave en trinecompiler til Parrot (alternativt kunne man vel også vælge javas runtimemaskine eller .Net), så man igen kunne skrive noget af sin kode i det kære gamle sprog.

Jeg står dog noget på bar bund – jeg har vel min gamle Dat1-note et sted, men det ville nu være rart med en BNF-grammatik og den slags. Og det lyder nu også som et ret stort projekt, så det kunne være godt med flere interesserede.

Server move

Yesterday, my homepage and blog went down. This morning, I emailed Yanet to ask what was wrong. It turned out that there were so few people left on the machine I was on that it had been classified as unused and removed. 🙁

I was therefore recreated on a new machine and had my files reinstalled from back-up. The new server is very nice and gives me more opportunities to create subdomains, but it’s irritating to be forced to move on the only day of the year with 26 degrees in Glasgow. :-/

I’m using this opportunity to make my blog my primary homepage – I doubt anybody had much of an interest in my real homepage anyway.

At the moment, I’m waiting for the nameserver changes to spread around the internet – by now, I guess I’m the only one who cannot access my homepage, but I’m sure that’s because of a caching problem at my end.

Google, speciale og død

Niels har på sin specialeside placeret Google-reklamer. D.v.s., at Google læser siden og udvælger passende reklamer. I dag er reklamerne flg.:

  • The Path to Healing Grief
  • Grief Journal
  • A Business Man’s Story (‘After my son’s heart stopped beating I felt utterly helpless’)
  • End-of-Life Planning

Jeg véd af erfaring, at det kan være hårdt at skrive speciale, men overdriver Google ikke noget her?

Park surfing

I’m writing this from the park in Rose Street, just a few buildings from my flat. I had hoped my wireless network would be available, but I cannot find it. Fortunately, however, I’ve found several unsecured ones I can use instead. The signal strength isn’t great, but at least it’s working.

It’s really great – surfing the net is so much nicer in the sun with running water on both sides.

Flickr

I’ve created an account on Flickr. It seems to work very smoothly,
but am I the only one to find it slightly odd that my page is called
19414697@N00 instead of my username or similar?

Update: It turns out it was just the default setting. My page now has a proper name: viralbus.
