Yes, it's about time for me to have a blog, too, I guess. I call this one a shoutblog, it's an XMPP bot I can easily talk (and hence post) to.


While playing the Elite Dangerous beta, I stumbled across Zero-MQ (ØMQ). ØMQ sounded pretty cool, so I ported one of my pet projects from using homegrown socket communication to the much more feature rich libzmq. I used the objc-zmq Objective-C language binding, prominently featured on the ØMQ homepage. Beware! This is a pretty uninspired wrapper, with a badly designed API and lots of bugs on top. Quite soon I found myself spending more and more time fixing bugs in the language binding rather than writing application code, thus I started looking around once again. Luckily I then found ObjectiveZMQ, which has a great API with a modern, sleak and truly object oriented design. Used in conjunction with libzmq-ios it's pretty easy to get a cross-platform (OSX/iOS) app up and running in minutes.


The Big Air Cooling Investigation answered all my questions about required number of fans and positioning in an R4 Define case.


Desqueak the rudder twist of the X-55 Rhino. I used Nigrin Graphite spray (all over my desk and face as well).


I recently bought a public beta key for Elite: Dangerous. Stunning game, even at this unfinished stage! Just realized that it's almost 30 (!) years ago I first played the game… The Making Of: Elite is an interesting read if you're interested in the origins of the hype.
