Nog n dag, Ver verby

Nog a dag is verby, dink ek is op n ander wêreld of ek beweeg lig spoed want tyd gaan vinniger elke dag.

Dit lyk ook as of daar iewers op die internet iemand besluit het om hulle IP te stel na myne, nou kom daar baie ewekansige internet koppelings na my server. Is besig om dit te uit te soort, maar mens kan net soveel DDOS inbrake hanteer. Ons het regtig nie meer baie IPV4 adresse oor nie en ek wonder of die nie die eerste van daai probleme is nie. As mens Occam’s Razor in ag neem, kan dalk iemand wees wat my aanval met n bot net. Die patroon wys dat daar duisende verskillende IP’s konnekteer, van rekenaars in Melasia tot iphones in Rusland.

Hier is vir julle n koel liedjie, gaan gerus en kry hulle album, dis goed

Where can the web go

It is interesting to see that Google’s Go Lang and web programming languages are used for more important stuff. I stumbled onto some of code from SpaceX on Github. They are using go web assembly for their iis-simulator. Seems they are also using web components for a lot of their other interfaces too.

Web browsers are sand boxed and they do not provide a lot of features and access to many parts of the operating system. Looking at projects like Discord, visual studio code and lots more, everyone is following the route of wrapping their web applications in their own browsers and wrappers. Through this they gain more access to operating system features by utilizing technology such as electron and nodejs.

But are these technologies memory friendly and future proof? Consider how many times software stacks has changed. These technologies sounds beginner friendly, but are they really the route we want to go?

I’m putting my money on web assembly and the future of compiled code in the web browsers. Rust is leading on that front with their memory safe approach. Go is also following suit and making great progress on that front. This makes it easier for the average programmer and makes the development and testing processes faster.

Taking my own experience into account, where I’ve written quite a few advanced as well as useless programs, in languages ranging from C++, Lua, Python,C#,PhP, Java, Clarion, Sql, Tcl to Delphi. And I have to say that I’m enjoying Go the most. It took some time to learn and to go with the Gopher.

I think despite all the changes, programmers are always going to follow the simplest route. Complex problems will be solved by the simplest languages.

Afrikaans is my moeder taal

Ek het die laaste ruk agter gekom dat ek my huis taal nie so baie gebruik nie. Aangesien dat ek so baie met rekenaar tale werk, dink ek dis n goeie idee om baie aandag aan die een te gee. Mense kan dit natuurlik nie vergelyk nie, maar bietjie tyd en n artikel huur en daar kan dalk goed doen.

Afrikaans was nog altyd vir my n goeie strokie vertelling en gedig stelling taal. N slegte skool geskiedenis het gemaak dat ek die taal in onbelange laat vergaan het. My standaard agt onderwyser het vir my gesê dat ek nutteloos is met die taal. Ek besef dat ek hier en daar spel foute gemaak het, maar sy het my gedwing om na n laer graad standaard te skyf. Terselfdertyd het ek my rekenaar programmering klase in engels geneem. Met al die het ek nie meer om gegee oor die taal nie.

Ek gaan myself toespits om weer n paar artikels te skryf in Afrikaans. Dis vir my lekkerder en ek kan party keer makliker se wat ek voel. So wees voorbereid vir rympies en gediggies, dit hang af hoe ek voel.

Afrikaans is my moeder taal en hiermee gaan ek dit probeer verhaal.

Dankie, sie hier vir vertaling.
