New year/ New us -

Mun pitää hyväksyä asia, ettei tämä voi jatkua näin. Selailkaa vaikka mun ihan ensimmäiseen (AMY) blogiin ja luette että lupaan ja vannon, että laihdun että nyt alkaa uus elämä jne. Mutta ei ne dieetit ole koko elämän muutos. Laihut ehkä kilon, mutta lihot takas kun alat taas normaalisti.. Mulla ei oo ollut hiveästi kieltoja, paitsi ei makeeta, ei herkkuja, ei isoja annoksia, ei ilta-kuuden jälkeen... Ja aina kun joku näistä ei pitänyt (melkein joka pvä tuli jokin rikos)...

Scalada - all about Scala -

Implicit conversion is a useful mechanism, because it lets you extend libraries retroactively, without actually changing them. Let's take a common example. We would like to repeat some String, say "nice" three times. We could write it as: def *(times: Int, original: String) = { def multiply(times: Int): String = { if(times > 1) original + multiply(times - 1) else original } multiply(times) } As a bit of a sidenote, multiply is not tail-recursive, because its recursive call is not the last thing...

Why do products so often fail? As Mike Elgan brilliantly explains in his article, people want to be in control.

Why won't the Holy see? On very select occasions does organised religion affect my life; at birth, when friends get married, at my sister's communion, when a close relative dies. I don't dislike strongly religious people, but I can't say I like some of the organisations they belong to, either. Every now and then, though, some of them cross the line. Just a few months ago, I was, along with all other homosexual men and women, categorically condemned by the Holy See as having "no social value"...

Ah, feels good to hack a bit of Scala after a while. A friend of mine was thinking about getting more lightweight syntax for list creation and I had urge to try something out. A simple way would be to create an implicit def that would lift a value to list:      implicit def valueToList[a](value: a) = List(value) Now you could have expressions like      5 :: 3 (of type List[Int]) But just for fun I tried different approach that uses functions as intermediate values. After playing with it a...

Ajatusten fragmentteja -

New York Times kirjoittaa ympäristöhereetikoksi itseään kutsuvasta Stewart Brandista. En tunne henkilöä ja artikkeli kertoo enemmän henkilöstä kuin henkilön ajatuksista, mutta lainaan Brandilta pari miettimisen arvoista sitaattia: Biotekniikasta: “Starting in the 1960s, hackers turned computers from organizational control machines into individual freedom machines,” he told Conservation magazine last year. “Where are the green biotech hackers?” Ydinvoimasta: “There were...

” It’s decent, but it’s not brilliant.” That’s what my teacher said about my essay. Or actually, a collection of essays/commentaries. He said they were all lacking that something, that little something that distinguishes 7 from 5-6 (in IB 7 is the best grade you can get). I have to admit that I was at first a bit shocked, then devastated, then disappointed. I had always thought those essays were good and I was especially happy with the latest one. But apparently it just wasn’t...

This vulnerability allows hackers to remotely cause the software to terminate.

Was reading an article about Chrysler decreasing their decision time drastically and that led me to thinking about metrics that could be used to measure decision making. Couldn't think of any besides the obious of length of decision process. Brief googling didn't make me much smarter either. Please provide links if I have been blind and overlooked something. I would think it would be good to start with question if measuring decision making is even necessary? I think so, if for nothing else then...

AAMIAINEN RUOHIKOLLA -

Bataatissa on karotenoideja ja tofussa on isoflavoneita, jotka voivat vähentää aivosyöpäriskiä. Aivokasvaimet ovat yleistyneet viime vuosikymmenten aikana. Vaikka ne ovat vielä harvinainen syöpätyyppi, nykyinen matkapuhelinten käytön aloittaminen jo lapsena saattaa lisätä niiden määrää räjähdysmäisesti. Ruotsalaisen professorin Lennart Hardellin tutkimuksissa matkapuhelimen käytön teinivuosina aloittaneilla on nähty viisinkertainen pahanlaatuisen aivokasvaintyypin...

The youths threw stones and petrol bombs at police in the town of Montfermeil overnight. They also hurled stones at...

Can Boyd's principles be really implemented in business? Chet Richards talks about that in excellent article . This part: That is, if the employees didn’t commit to making the system work, it wouldn’t move at all. The Toyota Way is why they do it for Toyota and don’t for most other manufacturing companies. The other important point about the Toyota Way is that the system is always getting better at whatever it does. As one Toyota exec put it, whatever we do this year is baseline for next...

I've done lots of things since last post. I've been working (oh yeah) and dancing my legs off. Me and my friend Marianna, went to the western classical music tradition (classical music) - concert, organized by state of Estonia . Estonian country celebrates it's 90th year of existence, not necessarily the independence, but existence over easier and more difficult years. The concert was full of feelings, different ones, and the best thing was high class orchestra with great pieces of...

It finally happened. It’s been knocking on my door for the past 3-4 years and now it broke the door and came crashing in. Burn out, the magic word of the 21 st century. I started to get worried about myself a while ago when I realized that I’ve started skipping school for no apparent reason. I skip at least 3-4 hours a week and it’s not that I was especially tired or anything, I just can’t find the motivation to put on shoes and leave for school. I have also stopped going to the gym...

Israel’s announcement of authorization for construction materials for 1,200 homes and 18 schools in Gaza is the latest achievement by the Freedom Flotilla, scheduled to sail next week.   In the weeks leading up to the flotilla, Israel has taken a number of steps to try to address the concerns raised in the public eye by the Freedom Flotilla 2 – Stay Human initiative. However organizers say that these steps are symbolic at best, fall far short of Israel’s obligations under international...

Spotify has plenty of Finnish children's music available so it has gained specific popularity in our household. This has rendered my older iTunes-control -scripts not that useful anymore. I decided to give Spotify scripting a go, even though I knew there's not applescript interface available. Thankfully simple key navigation is enough for the basic use case of "play random song from this playlist": -- Invoke Spotify simply by opening a Spotify playlist or artist URL open location...

In addition to make skype video calls I thought it would be nice to give my kids some control over playing music on the iMac. So, a new rfid tag was assigned to following simple applescript: tell application "iTunes" if player state is playing then stop else set the view of the front browser window to playlist "kertun musaa" set myNumberOfTracks to number of tracks in playlist "kertun musaa" set randomTrack to (random number (myNumberOfTracks - 1)) + 1 play track randomTrack of user playlist...

While I've always known that you can control many of the applications running in OSX using applescript I have very rarely tried that myself. Now, as I have a use case of semi-automation of skype video calling for the kids I started experimenting. I did buy a tikitag rfid reader on cheap which will be used for triggering the call. Here's what will be triggered by the rfid tag. This simple script checks if person xxxxxx is online and tries to open a call if he is. At the same time the script...

As I have so wonderful friends in Frankfurt I must post this one here. (Please find the original source, Teknik 360, here . Thanks, TN!) * * * The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one’s gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we, a Pan Am 747, listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747...

All through my life, one of the very common philosophical and/or religious questions that keeps repeating itself is that of fate. Lately I've been thinking about it, so I thought I'd write down a thought or two. The general idea of fate is that people believe that all or part of the events in our lives are preordained , or determined to happen beforehand, and that the choices we make in some of the crossroads of our lives are in fact so far away from random that they are the only possible ones...

The military has announced the plans it is considering to use for allowing Fallujans back into their city. They will set up...
