So it is Halloween?

October 31st, 2007 No comments

Is it Halloween nowadays?

It is not that I like Halloween or I celebrate it. FYI, I don’t celebrate it. It is just I want to say and post something. Haven’t been reading my RSS feeds for 4 days now and it is packed with 1997 articles so far. I have to read them all in Sunday because I have an exam tomorrow and another in Saturday and more in Sunday. I also have to submit E-Learning homework on Saturday which will take very long time to write. I wonder how I’ll study for Sunday’s subject. Anyway, my estimation of number of feed articles will be waiting for me on Sunday around 3500 to 4000 feeds to read since my feeds produces on average 500 articles per day and half of that on weekends.

By chance 1997 is the year I start diving in the world of I.T. and programming. Such nice days when I was an 11 years old kid surfing web pages when GIFs animations fills web pages all over the web.

Gotta go back to study, see ya all!

Very long article but great one. Know the history of the language you use!

Here’s the Abstraction:

The C programming language was devised in the early 1970s as a system implementation language for the nascent Unix operating system. Derived from the typeless language BCPL, it evolved a type structure; created on a tiny machine as a tool to improve a meager programming environment, it has become one of the dominant languages of today. This paper studies its evolution.

Moved to Google Reader

October 26th, 2007 No comments

After thinking for few days, I finally decided to use Google Read to read my subscribed feeds. I was using IE7 to read feeds but I’m facing some problems reading my feeds anywhere I want. I had to get my laptop and open it even though my college is full of computer labs with high speed internet access. I was surprised on the number of feeds I’m registered on. 183 wow… I didn’t know I was subscribed on more than 50 feeds!! Those are the feeds I read every day!

The Paging Navigation System

October 26th, 2007 No comments

Paging navigation system might be new concept for some developers. Not many websites out there really uses that method… through thousands of website I browsed, I have only seen that method being used maybe twice. One of those websites is

Paging navigation is good on some situations. Like, it is good on browsing a long list of data and maybe for viewing topics and articles but not always. If the page is so long and/or has lots of multimedia components it could slow front-end machines because it will consume resources. An article by Pete Forde talks about the paging system and how to implement it.

Because there are less restrictions on the structure of the code you write, it’s much easier to write bad code. But there is a solution: use a framework.
