I was recently talked into taking on the role of the negligent MediaWiki administrator for the esoteric programming languages wiki. As a consequence, I have now a local copy of the XML dump of the wiki contents (that anyone can download). To celebrate Easter in the traditional manner, then, I've spent some time computing statistics of the link graph of the wiki.
This is a gamified extension of the x86 opcode mnemonic generator. Playing should, hopefully, be self-explanatory.

After a long time of sporadic idle thinking about it, it is finally time to reorganize this spectacular web presence. The previous hierachical organization of stuff was p. arbitrary, and anyway there's not that much content in here, so I've chosen to go with a chronological ordering combined with a flat set of tags. Since the end result bears some facial similarity to (sigh) "a blog", and I can't think of a better word, I'll call it that. Just don't let that lead you to expect regular (or irregular) updates more than, say, once a year.
Regarding the existing content, I've shamelessly mangled them into "blog posts", complete with faked-in approximate dates of creation (or last update). This is certainly not a cheap attempt to make it look like I'd've been keeping a blog for a while now.
The idea of having the biographical stuff (i.e. my own face) be the very first thing on the site felt somehow banal.
I was therefore forced to put in a usability-decreasing
splash page sort of thing instead.
The logo is randomly chosen out of N more or less different L-systems and IFS fractals.
If you would like to see a particular logo, try adding
N is either a non-negative integer or the logo name (shown in the bottom-right corner), to the URL.
zpaste is a simple, single-user (or not-too-many-user) pastebin/tinyurl hybrid, in case you want something a bit more tweakable than the myriad of web services around.
