I don't often write stuff. Certainly not enough to warrant a blog. But sometimes I do feel the need to write down my thoughts. The results of those rare occasions are published on this page.

2010-06-02- Design and implementation of a compressed linked list library (PDF)
- The report for the final project of my professional (HBO) bachelor of Electrical Engineering. I was very liberal with some terminology in this report. For example, "linked lists" aren't what you think they are, and I didn't even use the term "locality of reference" where I really should have. It was also written for an audience with little knowledge on the subject, so I elaborated on a lot of things that should be obvious for most people in the field. Then there is a lot of uninteresting overhead about the project itself, which just happened to be mandatory for this report. Nonetheless, if you can ignore these faults it's not such a bad read, if I may say so myself. :-)
