I started this blog around 1996, hosting it on geocities.com at first. What started as a small collection of random posts about chess and computers graphics grew into a collection of around 100 posts covering a wide array of computer science topics: from quines to size optimization. From web security to compilers/language design and to many other things.
The last few years, I tried to write one post a month, a pace I enjoyed.
Today, after hosting this site for over 20 years and serving several million page views, I have decided to make this my last post. Having a family and a child, I no longer have the time or inclination to write a post every month. It also feels nice to wrap things up; going from a constant "work in progress" to a "finished" state.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Panos and M. Pierre, two people who enlighted me with their computer knowledge and gave me the enthusiasm to become a software engineer as well as all the bright fellow engineers I worked with and continue working with.
Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you enjoy the content.
Feel free to create a local copy of all the posts with:
