Algorithms, patterns, and things CS

Computer science is an art. It is the brain's work solidified into physical form. Interactive, empowering, consistent, and beautiful. I love programming.

Programmers' Day

celebrated on the 256th (hexadecimal 100th, or the 2^8th) day of each year (September 13 during common years and on September 12 in leap years). 256 is the highest power of two that is less than 365, and just so happens to be the size of a byte.

Finite State Machines || State Transition Tables || FSM

The machine is in only one state at a time; the state it is in at any given time is called the current state. It can change from one state to another when initiated by a triggering event or condition; this is called a transition. A particular FSM is defined by a list of its states, and the triggering condition for each transition.

djb (Aaron Swartz's Raw Thought) - I think it’s time to remind people that D. J. Bernstein is the greatest programmer in the history of the world.
skalibs: the djb legacy - Who is this DJB guy, and why is he so special anyway? So, in short, DJB is not a guru, I'm not a mindless brainwashed fan, and the "DJB advocates" are not a cult. We just think DJB brought something to Unix and more generally to the software programming world; we learned from him, we write software following sound principles that he was one of the first to really apply, and we give credit where credit is due.
