History. It repeats.

For some reason I don’t feel so bad about my selfies now…

On this Presidents’ Day, let’s all marvel at the fact that our 10th president John Tyler, who was born in 1790, has TWO LIVING GRANDSONS.

President’s Cray.

Apple all over.

Just got myself a new Mac for the first time in about 7 years: a 2013 model 13” Macbook Air. Picked it up via gumtree along with an Apple TV. Pretty happy with my reasonably minimal setup in the apartment now, but more importantly finally might be able to use a Mac for work as well, which would be a very nice change. We’ll see how it goes.

Now I just need to find someone to shift my monster of a desktop machine onto…

Cmder is a software package created out of pure frustration over absence of nice console emulator on Windows. It is based on amazing software, spiced up with Monokai color scheme and custom prompt layout.

The ‘full’ version includes git and a bevy of Unix commands; both versions are portable, so you can pop them on a USB stick.


Lovely looking console for Windows.

For years I’ve used YSlow and PageSpeed to profile page performance on 4chan. Page performance has always been important to me for two big reasons: 1) I browse 4chan daily and can’t stand slow websites (especially one I control!), and 2) the site is both operated on a shoe-string budget…

Takes me back to my short-lived but interesting (and painful!) time optimising a set of web servers in preparation for a huge spike in traffic. Funny that volumes I couldn’t even get my head around at the time are probably miniscule to these guys.

Great reference site.
