I slept 3 nights in an arcade in London
VEGA London Rhythm games meetup A few times per year, the folks from the UK rhythm games community organize a meet-up. I casually speak about wanting to go to London with my family and they point out that moving from Paris to London is easier and cheaper than ever thanks to the Eurotunnel. I decided that I wanted to go to the next UK meet-up. It was being held from 13th to 16th June this...

What's the deal with lolicon and such?
I haven’t posted anything there in a while and I’m coming back with a really strong one, I know. Being surrounded by a lot of people who are crazy about Japanese culture, and taking part of this madness myself, I’ve seen this topic arise quite a while. And honestly there are interesting things to say about it. First of all, I’m not going to discuss people who are sexually attracted to children, call them pedophiles...

Let's talk about shebangs!
Introduction to shebangs A shebang, or less commonly called hashbang, is the top line of an executable script written in plain-text on UNIX systems. For example, imagine a file called install, without any extension. The file mode has the executable bit set for current user. So you can execute it by just typing ./install.

Why I think C is a good thing for beginners
This time I’m presenting you an article that wasn’t written by myself. COLA is a classmate of mine. We’ve been in the same school since 2016 and will probably still be until I graduate, theorically in 2022. He asked if he could write an article on my blog about why he thinks C is a good language to learn for young programmers, which I of course agreed to. I won’t express my opinion on this...

Per-user udev triggered script
Ricing. Or stupid car tuning philosophy applied to computer interfaces. I got myself invested a lot into making my rice beautiful. By that I mean customizing my desktop environment so it looks personal and cool but remains very efficient and productive at the same time. While a lot of personalizations are subjective and so the choice of the window manager, status bar, icon packs, and such, changes from a person to another; there is some...

So I wanted to finish up a working blog and faced my usual dilemma : I did not want to use a CMS (like Wordpress or Blogger) and developing one myself took a lot of time. It took a lot of time because I can’t juste write an interface to a database that fetches and puts articles inside. No. I want something fast and secure. There’s one answer. And it took me a long time...
