On using third party libraries and sleeping at night...
This is a rant! Today, I wanted to investigate a bit wheter or not to use Tidy lib in our product. I downloaded the thing including the source. I wanted to have a quick look at the source code before I try to make a little program using it... Oh my, I shouldn't have done that. Now, I won't be able to sleep at night if we decide to use it. Why? Because of code like this: Bool CheckNodeIntegrity(Node *node){ if (node->prev) { if (node->prev->next != node) return no;... The code is like that from start to finish. Sorry guys, I don't know which planet you live on, but on mine, this code is simply not acceptable, period. Now, I know this is opensource and people are doing this in their free time and everything, but come on!! If they code like that in their free time, how do they code at work? I thought the majority of C/C++ programmers were used to code at least a BIT defensively. I guess I was wrong. Maybe that's why C/C++ is untenable, common sense is too hard for most people and they ...

"Back to Business" Ribbon Cutting Today
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will host a "Back to Business" Ribbon Cutting, marking construction milestones on Redwood Rd. between 9000 S. and 10400 S., on Friday, Nov. 14 at 1:30 p.m. in the northeast corner parking lot on 10400 S. and Redwood Rd. The public is invited to attend. The event celebrates a return to business as usual for commercial businesses, and residents along the corridor following yearlong construction. "We wanted to take this opportunity, before the holidays begin, to let the public know that the roadway itself is complete and traffic is flowing smoothly in the area," said Brandon Squire, UDOT Resident Engineer. "We also want to thank the businesses and residents along the corridor for their continued patience and support during construction." Improvements in the two-mile section include a new, wider concrete roadway featuring two lanes in each direction, along with a center turn lane and wide shoulders. Miscellaneous landscaping, sidewalk ...

Finished the Phoenix - Found Wanting
Done Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It was a good read, but leaves a little to be desired. I would say it's my least favourite of all HP books, mainly because it didn't really seem to have a point. There was no great mystery of sorts that Harry and his friends had to solve in order to save the day. If there was, it was far too obvious to me and there was no surprise. If I were to put together a plot summary it would go something like this: Harry Potter and his friends from Hogwarts wait for the return of Voldemort. That is all. That's all that happens really. What makes matters worse is that after it's all over there is little or no mystery left in the Potter saga. Dumbledore sits Harry down and explains it all. So what's left for the next 2 years Harry has at Hogwarts? Better be something good. Something damn good. Cause there's not much left unexplained.

Spam
Since the PDC I've been monitoring newsgroups. So, I diligently followed our internal guidelines for setting up and posting to newsgroups. That includes stuff like a legal disclaimer that I don't really know what I'm doing and that even if I did Microsoft would deny all knowledge of my existence. It also included a suggestion to use my real email alias (oliverf) but to modify the domain to something like online.microsoft.com. A human can figure out what my real email address is (get rid of the red "online."), but a spam scraper won't. I wish I'd followed that advice. I posted a reply to a question with my real email address in the reply-to field. I assume I was thinking, you know, I don't get any spam right now. Maybe some of it would actually be useful to me. Who knows what fabulous products I'm missing out on? And, wouldn't it be convenient if Microsoft just mailed me security updates right to my inbox as attachments? Within about 3 hours of that post, I started to get spam. I ...

Locality of reference and performance : Things you hope you will never need to use
People who can measure their application data's locality of reference using the CPU'S L2 cache scare me :) Personally, I find the biggest single performance improvement tactic is KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) which includes things such as using existing .NET library classes instead of writing your own (I am constantly suprised by how many people rewrite things just because they aren't familiar with the .NET BCL), and aiming to write the least amount of code possible- more code means more maintenance, more debugging, often also more CPU cycles in execution. Finding the simplest solution takes a bit more effort (since simple != obvious) but usually results in a smaller, faster and more stable system. And even if you still find yourself in CLRProfiler, at least you may have shortened your stay there! Oh yeah, there is a new release of the CLRProfiler as well which includes a ~100 page tutorial. Coolness!

Evening Plaza Yoko, Mariko and Noriko joined us tonight, so now everyone has been to class at least once. Miho mentioned that she had read Noriko's comment in last week's posting, but didn't leave a comment herself. Remember to visit the site and leave a message. Using the comment section is a great way to practice your English! The homework for next week is to do the Solo exercise and the writing exercises on page 88. Also listen to the CD and see if you can catch what Joshua likes to have on his pizza.

No Job
Well, Microsoft have put the kibosh on my plans for world domination, being as they have declined to hire me for reason unspecified. Very nice call from my recruiter but very little actual information. Sigh. You never get real feedback from these people. Oh well. The Indigo team will be at a loss without me and there are two or three books that need writing. As consolation have installed PDC Longhorn build on a spare partition and started playing with the code that way instead.

LOAF implemented in XSL!
LOAF is getting mainstream, and Matthew and Bertrand, very aware of new technological trends, already noticed it.There are some implementations in Java, Perl, C, C++, Python and even Word Basic. But LOAF can also be implemented in less traditional programming languages like XSLT.So here it is: the first XSLT implementation of LOAF! Download it here: loaf.xsltThis implementation is covered by the Apache license.
