It's on? 2014-07-28 [Mon] 07:17

So I started playing this "game", and I'm not really sure if I can do well on it. And I hear it's very, very competitive.

Normally, I'm fine with competitions if I'm given a chance to outwit others (that's pretty much how I got a degree and job). But this time, it seems fairly standardized process, and people tend to count on small details, or just by luck. And yes, my favorite tactics is a surprise attack.

Anyway, I'll try to play this "game" for a while from now.

Here's how to measure the "goodness" of a software design:

That's it. There's still uncertainty about how to tell if one is "as good" at understanding the software, but the idea here is pretty similar to that of Kolmogorov Complexity, except it uses a human as a turing machine instead. The communication between humans can be compared to a program code too.

Why GUI is slowing down 2014-07-14 [Mon] 23:55

Okay, okay, so I haven't written anything here for a month. That's pretty pathetic.

The other day, I was thinking why IDE is slowing down things for me. It's simple: you have to switch between a mouse and a keyboard. That's it. Yeah.
