coder humour

The humorous IRC quotes found on is always pretty geeky, it’s IRC remember, but this one is probably one of the best geeky programmer jokes I’ve seen so far:

Anonymous-san: okay so there's these two strings, right
Anonymous-san: They walk into a bar
Anonymous-san: The first string says
Anonymous-san: Hello, I'd like a rum and cokerhe7954454gh2kjn.,.43>>[][]21?24
Anonymous-san: The second string says
Anonymous-san: You'll have to excuse my friend, he's not null-terminated

It’s teh funny!!! Ha!

funny pieces of code

It doesn’t get a lot geekier than this, but the Daily WTF posts pieces of programming code daily so badly written it makes you pee your pants laughing!

Well, you have to be into programming to actually achieve the peeing thing, and euhm, maybe have like a really really full bladder as well, cause I never really do wet myself while laughing, but hey, you know what I mean right?

nothing funny about this piece of code, but it suits the subject

sex bots

This is probably gonna get me some non related hits but hey, wtf, it’s a fun idea. Check out the sex bots at Don’t expect anything raunchy of course, I mean, it’s all very clean and binary monkey business, but the idea, now that is cool.
I wonder what the result of this evolutionary process will be, and I’ve always thought about writing some code to have something like this going on as well, just for the hell of it, and see what the end result might be like.

I’m not the only one it seems.

geek programming security software

filesharing in 15 lines

Just read this on slashdot today…

TinyP2P is a functional peer-to-peer file sharing application, written in fifteen lines of code, in the Python programming language. I wrote TinyP2P to illustrate the difficulty of regulating peer-to-peer applications. Peer-to-peer apps can be very simple, and any moderately skilled programmer can write one, so attempts to ban their creation would be fruitless.

Awesome idea, I’m sooo gonna try this out at home!

best software essays of 2004

Lets talk shop.

Yeah, computers’n’shit, programming, coding, web design, geeky stuff. In fact, I won’t do much of the talking, I’ll leave that to some guys that have written some great articles on software development, which I’ve been reading just a few of which arose my interest right away, and I’ll be getting back to somewhere in the future, when I’m bored, or feel like learning a few new tricks of the trade… or see some known tricks confirmed, whatever.

Anyway, this list of articles is currently up on the Joel on Software discussion boards, as he’s currently editing a book containing the best software essays published anywhere — on the web or in print — during 2004. This thread contains links to online articles that might be appearing in that book.
