Initial ColourCode Success

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am working on a Ruby generic syntax highlighter. Well today it had its first measure of success by producing this HTML:
It is buggy as can be seen from the mess up near the end, and write now I haven't chosen the best colours nor a complete correct language definition for Ruby or any other language, but the major part is done.


I got two new books today, Practical C++ Programming and Code Complete 2/e
. Both are supposed to be really good, so lets see what knowledge I gain from it

Long time no write

Well I have been quite busy/tired/bored to write these past few days, so today I willed myself to write. The Christmas holidays have begun and I am getting a little more time on the computer.
It was my birthday on the 22nd and so now I am officially 16 as reflected in the sidebar.
I have also been planning a lot of projects. They are a code-to-html syntax highlighter in Ruby, a JS toolkit, a Ajaxified To Do Note application and a blog system. I am also planning to do a Space Invaders clone in C++ using SDL and a Game Of Life program for some fun.
The toolkit and syntax highlighter are on the way to completion in a few days and the to do is designed. Hope to get it finished by February.
Anyway Merry Christmas to everyone.

Awesome and Definition don't go together

I have often really hated how science just kills the magnificence of some things by a definition. Check this one out for instance, its about our hands.
The hands are the two intricate, prehensile, multi-fingered body parts normally located at the end of each arm of a human or other primate.

Hands are one of the coolest things ever produced by Evolution, we can barely imagine the complexity and trial and error required to create it and they call it a prehensile(no idea what it means) multi fingered body part :|

There are scores of such definitions and I wish someday someone changes them.

Nero No More

I thought I knew the limit of bad software written by proprietary and dumb companies for proprietary and dumb operating systems. But right now when all I want to do is sleep, I have discovered a new limit, it goes way past infinity. I need to write a LARGE BOLD rant to show how much I hate stupid crappy pathetic sissy Nero. But not write now, must ... go ... to ... sleep.
