Not my day

I started the day playing some basketball, well wasn’t even so bad I even scored a couple of points. But then I got to work, and I am sure this list will grow: at work I started of with cleaning up my cvs which got broken during a large refactoring session on friday, well what… Continue reading Not my day

Today I was taking the last bits of ‘foreign’ code to go through and see what functionality I am still missing. I encountered this here construct: while(true){ …. if(something){ ….… Continue reading while(true)
