Blog

Here is my small, simple micro-blog about my personal life. I will share everything from what I learned, my experience with technology and other daily struggles. I'm keeping it lite and straightforward. You can follow what I post here using my RSS feed.

URL in C

An interesting C puzzle I read weeks ago, maybe you might find it amusing.

Did you know that URLs are a valid syntactic element in C? Maybe the syntax highlighting will give you a hint :)

#include <stdio.h>

int main()
{
    https://wildauer.io/
    printf("hello, world\n");
    return 0;
}
~  gcc hello.c -o hello && ./hello
hello, world

The code compiles and runs successfully, because https: is a label and // following begins a comment.

Color scheme

I wanted a new color scheme for this page. I tried some generators but in the end, I used 4-5 different colors I liked on other pages.

I'm microblogging

Some weeks ago, I started microblogging here. At first it was just an experiment, but I like it and I think I am going to stick with it.

Sometimes when I’m bored, I put � in online forms, just because I know that somewhere in the world a developer is about to go crazy.

Covid UDP

Due to Coronovirus (COVID19) all TCP applications are being converted to UDP to avoid handshakes.

Php5 Fortran

Keep writing php5, It’ll probably be the high paying FORTRAN gig of the 2040s.
