I have discovered a way to create my own sudokus. Of course, I know it is only about a third of all the sudokus, but who is counting? 3 billion here, 3 billion there, who cares? TFrost



Comment on Modern Times: A New Clock by Jet

The modern new clock is interesting. I get to know your "new clock system" from Solar Position. I'm always interested in a clock system that shows the "true sun noon" and then separate the day into 12 parts based on noon. This is how the Chinese time system works (in medical and Geomancy field) in the daily culture.

Well written walkthrough of a very thorough way of conducting tech interviews. I believe that the technical exercise via email, and more importantly seeing the candidate code are important, because they give you certainty that he can do it and also instill in the candidate's mind the fact that he is expected to write code. I've seen candidates be put off by an emailed simple exercise, although they claimed to be proficient at coding during, for instance, an initial phone interview.

Comment on The Madness of the HTML5 FileSystem API by kybernetikos

As it happens, the whole fsapi thing I did is based on promises implemented in javascript. I think that if we keep going down this asyncrhonous route with new browser APIs it will become really important to have a good promise implementation as part of the javascript standard library in browsers.

Nice. Javascript promises wouldn't be an acceptable alternative?
