Just received my results for Software Engineering degree I did @ Kingston University: First Class.

I Am On Twitter

I was curious to see what all the buzz is about, so I’ve signed up.

You can “follow” me @ http://twitter.com/arnie_z

If you’re a developer, here are some people you might want to “follow”:

New Job

I’m pleased to announce that as of 10 Dec 2007 I am officially a member of delta tre media software development team.

I’m back

It’s been a long time since I’ve done any updates to this blog. Here’s what I’ve done today:

  • Added a Google Reader Shared Items widget that gets latest shared item from my Google Reader account – only top articles make it to that list
  • Added a blogroll widget and populated it with my favourite blogs – check them out
  • Updated “About me” page – that was long overdue
  • Added “My OPML” page – where you can get the latest OPML file and find out what I’m reading
  • Added “My Tools” page – page itself is still under construction

I plan to start posting technical articles on this blog, so there’s more to come…

I Need Sleep…

It’s 00:11 GMT. I’ve just finished building the new PC for my parents and am currently trying to get through the rss posts that have piled up over the last few days. 187 posts to go (of 598 discovered this morning). Not bad.

After going through the first 200 posts, I though it would be a good idea to review my blog reading process. You’ve probably seen something similar on other blogs, but I’ve put together a list of suggestions that could be useful should you find yourself in a similar situation:

  1. If you have 598 posts to go through, consider just deleting the whole lot – the time spent sifting through all that information may or may not be worth the result.
  2. If find yourself deleting >90% of posts in a particular feed – just remove that feed. Or, even better, try to find a similar feed that focuses on a subset of information that the original feed provided.
  3. Remove feeds that have lost their quality and/or integrity. View an earlier post of mine for an example.
  4. Don’t read a long post immediately . Eyeball the post. If you think it’s good – mark it ‘To Read‘ and read it some other time; otherwise delete it.

That’s all folks. So until next time – Good fight, good night.

New Tagline

Just changed the tagline of my blog.

I was listening to the Hanselminutes podcast on “Globalisation” – the guys were discussing big endian / little endian byte order and the fact that the Internet is Big Endian and Intel systems are little endian and there is a layer in between (somewhere in the stack) that does the byte-flipping.

This podcast is really great: the number of feed subsciptions in my feed reader has doubled and I now know what shrinkster is.
