Cute decorative scissors, cutting through your code.


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.

Articles That May As Well Be Considered Blog Posts

2014-07-29 - The Sorry State of Convenient IPC

A long rant about IPC systems.

2014-01-09 - Some Measurements on Direct Connect File Lists

A short measurement study on the file lists obtained from a Direct Connect hub. Lots of graphs!

In this article I explain a vision of mine, and the results of a small research project aimed at realizing that vision.

2011-11-26 - Multi-threaded Access to an SQLite3 Database

So you have a single database and some threads. How do you combine these in a program?

Longer Reports

2014-06-10 - Biased Random Periodic Switching in Direct Connect (PDF)

My masters thesis.

2013-04-05 - Peer Selection in Direct Connect (PDF)

The rather long-ish literature study that precluded my masters thesis.

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. :-)
