A Hundred Days of Code, Day 036

While the storm passed us by, it bought upon us a day of no power.
So I just deciced to make the most of it and read a book, I’ve wanted to, for quite a while.

Finished Jon Stokes’, “Inside the Machine”.
This book is like a 5000 feet, overview on how the CPU inside a computer works.
If you’re curious like me, and don’t want to delve into the nitty-gritties of Computer Science, this is just the book for you.
Starting with a fictional CPU and then racing through the Intel/AMD (x86, IA-64, x86-64) and AIM (Apple, IBM, Motorala - PowerPC) line of CPUs, this is a wonderful exposition of how the brains in your computer work.
(spoiler, they are really dumb and plenty fast!)

This was a wonderful, wonderful, book!
I cannot wait for the new edition to arrive!


A Hundred Days of Code, Day 034

Ok, back from hiatus, much earlier than expected :)
Need to take care not to burn myself out now.
I need to do this slowly.

Done with a tiny program, Kushal asked me to write.
If you download a log from the DGPLUG log archive and then run the program and give it the filename, it’ll spit out a list of how many nicks, spoke how many words.

The code is here, Gitlab and Github

I’ve written this program before, and this time I wanted to use Regular Expressions in the program.
I went and learnt Regex.
And then came and found out all I needed, was such a teensy bit of what I learnt XD

However, the combination of Python and Regular Expressions is quite compelling to me.
And I have a ton of more important work, suddenly.
So the plan, now going forward is to first finish up the Talk Python course and then to practice Python and Regex, until I am comfortable.
If I feel like writing something whimsical in the middle, I sure will.

The important part, I realise, is to do this slowly and steadily.
I commit to working two hours a day, five days a week.
No use burning myself out again.

P.S. Forgot to add, that the hundred days of code for me, is now a hundred and sixteen days :)
