programming video kill dash nine

October 27th, 2008

The Lyric:
I guess I’ll have to shut you down for good this time,
Already tried a SIGQUIT, so now it’s KILL DASH 9.
You gotta learn when it’s time for your thread to yield;
It shoulda slept; instead you stepped and now your fate is sealed.
I’ll take your process off the run queue without even asking
‘Cause my flow is like reentrant and preemptive multitasking.
Your sad rhymes are spinnin’ like you’re in a deadlock,
You’re like a synchronous sock that don’t know when to block;
So I pull out my keyboard and I pull out my glock,
And I dismount your girl and I mount /proc
And I’ve got your fuckin pid and the bottom line
Is that you best not front or else it’s KILL DASH NINE.

No more CPU time.
And your process is mine.
‘Cause it’s MY time to shine
So don’t step outta line or else it’s

See it ain’t about the Benjamins or Pentiums or Athlons,
But you rappin’ 50 meters while I’m spittin’ in decathlons.
Your shit’s old and busted, mine’s the new hotness;
You’re like CLR and I’m like CLRS.
You’re running csh and my shell is bash,
You’re the tertiary storage; I’m the L1 cache.
I’m a web crawling spider; you an Internet mosquito;
You thought the 7-layer model referred to a burrito.
You’re a dialup connection; I’m a gigabit LAN.
I last a mythical man-month; you a one-minute man.
It’s like I’m running Thunderbird and you’re still stuck with Pine,
Which is why I think it’s time for me to KILL DASH NINE.

No more CPU time.
‘Cause it’s KILL DASH NINE,
And your process is mine.
‘Cause it’s my time to shine,
So don’t step outta line or else it’s

My posse throws down like leaky bucket regulators;
I was coding shit in MIPS while you were playing Space Invaders.
With my finger on the trigger I run ./configure
Yo, this package is big, but MY package is bigger.
I roll my weed with Zig Zag while I zag-zig splay,
And I do a bounds check before I write to an array.
I’m a loc’d out baller writing KLOCS a day,
‘Cause it’s publish or perish, fool, what can I say?
I’m 26 now, will I live to see 28?
Some days I wonder if I’ll survive to graduate.
But hey, that’s just fine, I won’t ever resign,
And if fools try to step then it’s KILL DASH NINE!

From my command line
Sending chills down your spine,
‘Cause it’s my time to shine,
So don’t step outta line or else it’s

fs sa rlidwka
I’ll chown your home and take your access away
Comin’ straight outta Stanford, ain’t nobody tougher,
Control-X, Control-C, I’ll discard your fuckin’ buffer.
You’re outside your scope, son, close them curly brackets,
‘Cause I drop punk-ass bitches like a modem drops packets.
Dump your motherfucking core, and trace your stack
‘Cause where your ass is going, there won’t be no callback.
See my style is divine and my code is sublime,
My career’s in a climb and yours is in a decline.
I’ll write a pound-define and assign you as mine,
So refine those sad rhymes or remove your plus signs,

No more CPU time,
‘Cause it’s KILL DASH NINE,
And your process is mine,
‘Cause it’s my time to shine,
Bitch you stepped outta line and now it’s


How to avoid long page load when using Jquery Plugins

October 18th, 2008


jQuery is great. But the best is the that you can use tons of jQuery plugins for each amazing functionality you want to provide. And you can implement it right away without spending a couple of months doing javascript web development and all the pain in the ass that means (even when Jquery makes your life easier regarding that).

But then comes one problem:, you want autocomplete plugin for some forms, you want blockUI plugins for the ajax calls, you want ClueTip plugin for nice tips/help when people submit forms, you want the form plugin to submit your forms through ajax and if that wasn’t enough, you need to load a 4kb js file full of code to provide some amazing functionality.

That’s great, your site kick ass, but your page takes some times between half a minute and a minute to load, and worst: when someone leaves your page, the browser needs at least 10 seconds to be able to leave your page thanks to all the js code you put over it.

In this article you will find a simple solution to that problem, that works great (at least for me). The only js requirement on my systems are: jquery library & jquery blockUI plugin. Any other plugin/js code I need, I only load it on demand, when the user really need it, and I make that user wait when he want that functionality for the first time, instead of make every user wait even when they don’t need that functionality.

Introducing John Walter from the Office of National Drug Control Policy

October 18th, 2008

At first I though it was a joke until I realized he was serious about it.

He warned parents about the dangers of kids as young as 13 watching videos online about people getting high on dope. According to him this encourage kids to do that. As usual with the war on drugs, the first objective is Fear, so below are top two phrases from him found on that article:

Using Gengo & karailievs-sitemap plugins for Wordpress.

September 26th, 2008

This is the deal: Gengo changes the way url’s are handle and it adds a /lang_code/ to the end of every page/article.

In the other hand, karailievs-sitemap build the sitemap file with standard url’s.

Result: google complains that most of the urls on the sitemap are redirects.

I found an easy fix in the ksm.php of karailievs-sitemap plugin.

Who needs TV Satire Shows? You have the bush administration.

September 23rd, 2008

Below are the top phrases which will make you roll on the ground laughing if you think in advance that it comes from a tv satire show instead of the White House.

#1 “ The territorial integrity and borders of Georgia must be respected, just as those of Russia or any other country”

Who say it: President Bush on August 26th, 2008.

What he forgot to say: “Except if your country have oil and we need it, and except if one of our strong allies need your territory, in that case, it doesnt matter. But as Georgia don’t have oil, then you must respect the territorial integrity and borders of Georgia.”

#2 ” There’s no room for debate on this matter. The United Nations Security Council has adopted numerous resolutions concerning Georgia.”

Who say it: President Bush on August 16th, 2008.

Short Version of what he forgot to say: “It’s an order, not a rational argument, so please don’t debate”.

Long Version of what he forgot to say: “No debate means we are not going to discuss about why we a few months ago ignored resolution 1.244 concerning Serbia and recognized anyway the independence of Kosovo against a UN Security Council resolution. So please do what we say… it’s an order, not a rational argument”.

I swear I tried to find a better title for at least ten minutes without luck.

#3 ” No cause can justify the deliberate taking of innocent human life — and the international community is nearing universal agreement on this truth.”

Who say it: Bush on the last U.N. speech on September 23th, 2008.

What he forgot to say: … and by “nearing universal” I mean it doesn’t apply to civilians killed in the fight against terrorism. If you are fighting terrorism, killing 90.000 civilians in Irak or 20.000 in Afghanistan  do not count as taking innocent human life. After all, they lived in the same country of those terrorists so each civilian killed is one less chance of a civilian became a terrorist.

Gengo: Wordpress plugin for multiples language

August 1st, 2008

If you need multi language support for your Wordpress, go for it: It’s the best one of all which support multi language.

If you need like me to do some posts in one language, some in other, and later if you have time do some translations, then this is the only one which supports that as far as I know.

Well… the plugin it’s nice, I like it and it seems to support all it claims.

However there is a big important gotcha… if you implement this plugin, all your old url’s are going to start being redirected. As all links will change also in every place of wordpress, this will affect you as much as popular you are. In my case this is a new wordpress instalation so really don’t care, but if you have a thousand page indexed by search engines, this will kill your rank.

I’m now trying to join the developers group to try to convince to move all thos redirects to be permanent (301) and not 302 like they use now. In the meantime, I’m going to share a small temporary fix for this.

DVD’s backups with Linux

August 1st, 2008

¿Have you ever wonder how to make a full backup of a dvd you own?

People lend dvd’s and when you lend something many times, it will end damaged and that nice move you had will not be useful for anything else than to put glass on it to avoid leave marks on the table.

P2P for what? Google is enough

August 1st, 2008

Even when p2p network continue to exist and get bigger and bigger, I’ve not used one for more than a year, now I use google for download music.

A phrase between quotes in google means “Find exactly this phrase”. Therefore if you try something like
“Pink Floyd” “Dark side of the moon” you will find loads of pages strictly related to that cd, of course most of it will be pages to buy the cd or with lyrics of it.
