Parallel Sorting in Java 8

Posted by & filed under , , .

I started playing with Java 8 relatively recently (booo! 🙂 ) — and going through the new features this JDK brought, I keep discovering things which I feel deserve more attention than they have been given. Sure, everyone is raving about the lambda expressions, try-with-resources and so on, but occasionally there are small additions that […]

Small Java Utility to Generate Random int Files

Posted by & filed under , , , .

This is not ground-breaking, folks and in fact it’s not even anything sexy, but it’s just something that’s been bugging me for a while when I play with some Java tools and code on my side: I need (very) often a way to quickly generate a text file with random integers as well as a […]

New Blog Layout and New Intrepidity Theme Changes

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I’ve bitten the bullet finally, and changed my blog layout. For those of you repeated visitors I’m sure you noticed, for the rest of you who are new to my site, it’s worth saying that the old theme has been on my blog since its inception — which is a few good years back, […]

Java Strings vs Ropes

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Recently, in my news feeds I stumbled across this implementation of Ropes in Java (http://ahmadsoft.org/ropes/) and it captured my attention right away as it boasts a faster (better?) alternative for dealing with characters in Java. Unfortunately the website doesn’t offer any comparative information regarding how much faster a Rope implementation is than the standard String […]

About the Play! Framework and Their Thread Pooling

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is a rather interesting find and I’m still looking into it — so hopefully will come back with more insights on it — but I thought I’d publish these things as I find them. So bear with me as I unravel this mistery — as of right now, unless I’m looking in the wrong […]

PHP Utility to Convert Multi-line MySQL Strings

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is a very small “project” (I use quotes since the term “project” seems a bit generous here, however, it is treated as a project on GitHub!), which I found to be useful when dealing with generating MySQL scripts to insert or update text which spans over multiple lines. In most such cases, I would […]

Evernote API — Small Maven Problem

Posted by & filed under , , .

So I started looking a bit closer these days at the Evernote API — another platform alongside Twitter which I like a lot, which is to say it’s basically another platform I find myself writing all sorts of tiny apps around 🙂 From the beginning I find out right away a small problem in their […]

Script to Quickly Create a Java Spring MVC Project

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been (a bit) frustrated recently with the lack of support for quickly creating a Spring MVC project skeleton — there seems to be some maven archetypes but most of them I found to either not be maintained for a while and/or they install so much stuff that I decided not to use them. All […]

HowAboutWe Firefox Add-on

Posted by & filed under , , , .

Ok, so you might have seen the previous howaboutwe / Twitter project I spawned off the other day and blogged about here — and I thought since I’m not actively using howaboutwe anymore, but still found myself with a paid membership for a few more weeks, how about I (ahem! :D) play a bit more […]

Small App for Linking Twitter and HowAboutWe

Posted by & filed under , , .

OK so I know it’s geeky as you like, and to a certain degree pointless… however, for the sake of being a geek and using Twitter too much perhaps, I decided to give this a go, and it turned out into an app that I rather enjoyed playing with (as well as writing it of […]
