  • Labview_rails and development motivation

    March 19, 2009

    Alright, my wife has been trying to convince me that I should share the one-off I wrote for our internal lab management, so today I finally got around to fixing the last *major* bug in the system, and putting it up on github. Yep, that’s right, you too can have a quasi-specialized lab management Ruby […]

  • From Newsbeuter to Instapaper with the Ruby RicePaper library

    March 3, 2009

    I love Instapaper, a truly elegant solution without any needless over-architecting. I use it every day, for queuing up articles to read during a lull in the workflow around here. However, I’ve had an extra step in my article reading, see I read my RSS feeds in Newsbeuter, so I normally have to open the […]

  • Switching from MacBook Pro to an ASUS EeePC

    December 3, 2008

    Well, the display on my Macbook Pro finally decided to die on me, for no apparent reason (I was just sitting in bed, listening to some music when it died). So, I decided that rather than pay for a repair, I’d continue to use the MacBook as a desktop with an external display, and get […]

  • Compiling inavd server on FreeBSD

    October 14, 2008

    Just a short post, working through some of the modules I received, I ran into the inav module. Turns out that inavd doesn’t compile very nicely on FreeBSD, so I patched it. Previously when trying to compile you get: c++ -ggdb -g3 -D INAV_VERSION= -c sniffer.cpp In file included from sniffer.cpp:34: /usr/include/netinet/ip.h:162: error: ‘n_long’ does […]

  • Vim setup explained

    September 14, 2008

    Since my site is named after a Vim command. I figured that I should eventually write something talking about my favorite text editor, and how I like it configured. What follows is the explanation of my .vimrc, as well as a description of the plugins that I use. A lot of the credit for this […]

  • Firefox/Safari on OSX’s keyboard annoyances

    August 21, 2008

    I use keyboard shortcuts. A lot. So much in fact, that I find it incredibly annoying when websites create their own keyboard shortcuts for their pages. Most wiki-type pages (Wikipedia, Trac, Twiki) all use keyboard shortcuts on their sites. I am a firm believer that application-level keybindings should always take precedence over website keybindings, no […]

  • Inline strlen function in assembly

    June 6, 2008

    I know the strlen function in assembly has been covered on the internet before, but I figured I’ve cover it again, just in case someone like myself were searching google for it ; here’s the code: 00404334 sub_404334 proc near 00404334  push edi 00404335  push eax 00404336  push ecx 00404337  mov edi, edx 00404339  xor […]

  • Quick javascript de-obfuscation with python

    June 5, 2008

    Scholar was kind enough to allow me to post his/her obfuscated javascript. Here’s a quick rundown. The page was originally this: <html> <title>404 Not Found</title> </head><body> <h1>Not Found</h1> <p>The requested URL /index.php was not found on this server.</p> <p>Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.</p> […]
