Status Report 28/6/2011
For the last 2 days I’ve worked on integrating with the installer engine. Yesterday I’ve tried using some of the other engines made for the console or gui. The console installer failed to install (or I didn’t know how to use it, but often triggered a Segmentation Fault). And after many attempts the gui installer engine is well too integrated in the gui to adapt it easily. So...

String vs Int: The battle for Palindrome Plains
I have a homework for the University in which I have to say if a number is a palindrome or not. So I was wondering which method is going to be faster? Reading it as a string and checking it character by character or reading it as a int and comparing it to it’s reverse? INT Pros: Faster checking Cons: Had to generate the reverse of it which included using the % (mod) operator which we all...

Ubuntu Netbook Upgrade
If you have a Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 installed on a Acer Aspire 1410T(the 11 inch one) I don’t recomend you to upgrade using the installer. I tried it and afterwards the Netbook Display Manager would not start, instead it flashed with a white overlay (like the one you experience when an application stops responding) on the screen each second. So the nice way is to do a reinstall. Hope...

Twitter SMS for Romania
When I logged into twitter (the website not any of the third party applications) I noticed a message saying that Twitter’s SMS notification is now available for Romanian users of Vodafone. I really appreciate this, now I can make my apps warn me via sms messages.
Via ganceanu.com Distributed CEO via Silviu Gănceanu on 3/27/10 My 3 weeks of being CEO will expire on Monday and I will pass the CEO hat to Mircea. It’s been a crazy and fun period for us! I had the chance to manage one “intimate” beta launch and one private beta launch. It all ended up with an awesome private beta party this Friday — 55 beers and 1 bottle of whiskey is what we accomplished...

What teachers make
What teachers make via Seth’s Blog by Seth Godin on 3/27/10 Perhaps the most forwarded poem ever, from a full time poet no less. You can buy his book, too. (Thanks, Rod, for the link). [Video includes a coarse but common gesture, in case you need the alert]. Linchpin teachers engage in the act of pushing people to have the sort of breakthroughs Taylor talks about. They’re scarce,...

But here posterous thrives, it’s autopost feature is one of the best things I’ve seen so far. Let’s hope we’ll be seeing more and more from this startup. Posted via email from Alexandru’s...
