New job

Started my new job today as a real-time system programmer at Ericsson. My new co-workers are very nice people that seems to like the same stuff that I do. NICE INDEED! They gave me a good welcome and I feel happy to have them as co-workers (at the same time, I miss my old co-workers).

Must sleep now!

To much to do

I have had tons to do for a couple of days now. Soon my LAN party season starts. We are a couple of dudes (12 to 16 dudes, age 25 or more) that play FPS games. I have merged a couple of map packs for different games so that the manual batch work of patching and adding maps will go faster. These map packs need to be tested and so on.

I have also written a lot on my thesis and formalized the new parser on paper (all in LATEX). Moreover, I.m trying to learn C++ and yesterday I was on the cinema watching AVP: Alien Vs. Predator.

So no pyblosxom plug-in coding has been possible.

Parser improvements done

I am back on track! I have now implemented the changes to my parser. I have done a lot of tests and I think the parser works as wanted. I will however do some more tests to be sure. But it is nice to have most of the work out of the way. I think I will release the parsers (both the old and the new improved parser) together with the thesis later. The parser code is kind of ugly, but it works. The code is ugly because it is a one time fast implementation (I hope that I never need to do a fast hack like this again).

I release that I have not explained what the parser actually do. The parser is actually a type/mode checker for an expansion of the programming language Java. The expansion is a mode system for expressing that a reference to an object only can be used to read an object and not change the state of that object. This is the short version of what the parser do. If you are interested, you can always read the thesis when it is ready.

Parser improvements

I did not get the time this weekend to build the mail submission form (pyblosxom plug-in mentioned in an earlier post), that I had planed. Instead I have started to test some ideas concerning changes in a parser (java based) that I have built for my thesis. Much of the test implementation is done, but some more work is still needed. I hope to finish the parser before Wednesday this week.
