דרושה: ספריה

Sunday, July 31st, 2005

קראתי את הפוסט האחרון של xslf באתר שלה (ברוכה השבה לארצנו) ודבר אחד עורר בי תהיה – היא מדברת שם על שני ספרים שקראה, ומקשרת אותם לעמוד המתאים באמזון – כמו שכולם עושים.

דבר שלחלוטין לא ברור לי. (more…)

So, Microsoft released a [not so] public beta of their next browser version

Saturday, July 30th, 2005

And as you probably have already heard, Microsoft IE7 (only available to certain pre-registered MSDN subscribers, but can probably be gotten to using BitTorrent) does offer some changes from previous versions (unlike IE6, which can not be distinguished from IE5 without closer inspection).

JavaScript Date Format

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

I took the time to implement some sorely missed functionality in the JavaScript core objects – Date is missing simple date formatting to text string. While the Date object can parse arbitrary textual descriptions of dates and times as input, it can only output textual description with a fixed “locale” template.

I’ve looked up on the web and there are some utilities that achieve this simple operation, but most of them are overly complex and some people even have the nerve to charge for this very simple code !

Uneventful

Monday, July 18th, 2005

Sorry for lack of updates – the last week was boring.

Yesterday Karen and me had to drive to Jerusalem to return a notebook Karen borrowed. It wasn’t very interesting, but we had to drive in the twisting streets of Jerusalem to the phone instructions of the notebook owner, without having a clue as to where we are going. But it all went out OK – it was just a touch and go – we were back in Herzelia 2.5 hours later.

Anyway – the most interesting thing is that Elad Just posted an entry regarding his adventures in Papua New Guinea and it sounds like he was having quite the adventure. Can’t wait for more updates.

Linux laptop tips

Monday, July 11th, 2005

I’m using a Compaq (not HP) Evo n410c laptop using Mandrake Linux (cooker) and frankly, its battery life are pretty poor (somehwere around 1 hour).

The problem is that the system configuration and defaults could be handled better.

מתכונים: פלפלים ממולאים וקציצות

Saturday, July 9th, 2005

את הבסיס לקחתי מאיזה אתר אינטרנט שאני כבר לא זוכר את שמו, ושיניתי אותו די הרבה כי המתכון משתמש בהמון דברים מוכנים שיש בארה”ב ו(א) אין לי במקרר, (ב) כנראה שאין גם בסופר ו(ג)באמת – לקנות מילוי מוכן בקופסה ? על מה האמריקאים המופרעים יחשבו הלאה ?

My first ruby script is coming along nicely

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

Among other things, thanks to the nice folks at #ruby-lang.

Ruby has some really nice schticks. A few of the things I currently love about ruby:

בחיפוש אחר החטיף האולטימטיבי

Wednesday, July 6th, 2005

חבר שלי אלעד ואני (טוב, בעיקר אלעד – זה הרעיון שלו ואני סתם נגרר) מחפשים כבר די הרבה זמן את החטיף האולטימטיבי. כן – הגביע הקדוש של תעשית המזון 🙂
