Hello ND4J

I haven’t blogged in over 4 years so I’ve decided to kick-things off again by doing a series on DeepLearning4J which I’m using more and more of recently. DL4J is great because there’s no need to translate the models to something else for production. You deploy them to production by just using them inside a […]

What worries me about Scala

I’ve recently been rediscovering podcasts.  I’m particularly fond of the NodeUp podcast, but I also listen to podcasts about Rails, Clojure, and Scala.  The Scala podcast is by far the most academic; taking a shot every time they say the word “type” makes for a pretty nice drinking game. I must admit I like academic […]

My first Arduino

Yesterday my wife decided to buy yet another sewing pattern book and I decided to tag along.  As a Kindle user, there’s usually very little for me to do at a bookstore.  I usually just look around the IT section of the magazine rack and thumb through the amazing Ubuntu magazine, or Nikkei Linux.  This […]

How To Get etags Working in Emacs

You’ve been using Emacs for how long and you haven’t figured this out yet? Yup.  Up until now I’ve never really needed to actually get etags working in Emacs.  I remember trying to figure it out long ago as a newbie and giving up.  It’s initially difficult because it’s not as simple as just saying […]

Copyright Infringed

So the author of Listen has taken code from Quod Libet (including code from my lyrics plugin) and ripped the copyright section (and my name) out and used it in his software. Now the code is GPL so I’m completely fine with him using it, it’s why I write open-source code, but removing my name […]

Quod Libet

Quod Libet is the music player I use and occasionally hack on. In the current revision in SVN my lyrics plugin has been integrated into the main player. I also added a feature to the album list view so that you could access the plugins menu from it. Since I’ve been in Japan for nearly […]

Component Object Model

So after getting the new laptop, and installing the Microsoft Retail Management System software I learn that the plugin system is based on legacy code, and not .NET code like I was told. I became very annoyed that my uncle didn’t know about this earlier because if I had known I was going to be […]

PSP

PlayStation.com – PSP The PSP is like the Ring of Power. At first I bought it saying that I’d sell it after I played a couple of games. Unfortunately every time I try to send the PSP back into the fires of Mt. Doom. We wants it. That being said. I have found a couple […]

Unmotivated

Lately I’ve felt pretty unmotivated to do any programming. A couple of weeks ago I felt like I could code everything, and now I barely have the motivation to finish my Quod Libet plugins. I’ve also been thinking of what type of programming interests me the most. I’m not really sure, I guess web programming […]

Upgraded once more

Now I’m running 1.5.1. I got Adelphia Cable internet today, I’m not impressed, but it works… kind of. The main problem is how slow it is sometimes. Like if it had some strange QoS rule that makes http slower than anything else. There’s also the terrible ping times, my 56k had better ping times! (this […]
