Still ROTFLing...

Tagged:  •    •  

I just had one of the most hilarious (for me) e-mail exchange I ever experienced.

From: <hidden@example.com>
To: <bonzini@gnu.org>
Subject: Time stamp

I need to know how to set up a UNIX terminal log so that the time stamp 
is always displayed. You help will be appreciated!

And why should I know it?

XML: <!-- Weirdly --> Extensible Markup Language

Tagged:  •  

I was looking at XML these days. It is really interesting language. It is very useful and I like it a lot and I used it in some of my projects to save data but as I learn how I can extend it or use the not well known features, it confuses me.

For example, you can create entities, which are like variables in other languages. You can define/declare entities like this:

<!ENTITY client "Canol">

Broken a Record

Tagged:

Today, I've just broken my old record of writing an errorless program at the first try with 29 lines of code which includes creating classes, subclasses, methods, comments and doing some test :) Hooray Smalltalk! What is your record and in what language? Leave a comment :)

More on java.net.SocketImplFactory

I found that someone has a working use for java.net.SocketImplFactory, that is adding SOCKS support to Java sockets. The code is here.

I thought I'd mention this just for the sake of completeness

Smalltalk and Turkish

Tagged:  •  

I realized one important thing which pulls me towards Smalltalk, subconsciously. Smalltalk's syntax resembles Turkish in some ways. I will try to show it via examples.

The first thing which seperates Turkish from other English like languages is that verbs are put at the end of sentences, not after the subject. In English, the order of sentence components is:

Subject verb object.

In Turkish:

Subject object verb.

In Turkish, you can join subject and verb into 1 word. In that case it is like:

Object verb.
