PHP Based Job Scheduler The job scheduler is coming up, but still hampered by performance issues. However, majority of the functionality is working and should be put to use with some simple tasks this week. The objective is not to replace the crontab, because we must have at least one task running on cron every minute, that is the job scheduler itself. The actual scheduled tasks...

The (not so) hidden cost of compressed air cans

Posted by lespauled in lespauled's Blog, 02 September 2014 - - - - - - · 1,648 views

As most of us do, I have used compressed air cans for cleaning computers, desk areas, and even moved into cleaning the air conditioning vents on my car. I even started using them for blowing out sawdust from work areas when needed. It used to seem like the logical thing to do, until I finally woke up. For the longest time, I would tell my wife to grab...

I've been away for quite some time. Looks like my last blog post was way back in March 2013, so that's probably the longest time I've gone without CodeCall. I stopped doing coding for a while, but now I'm starting up again. I'm coming back to CodeCall, 'cause I miss being here. I miss all the people here. You guys are awesome.

Well, I guess this calls fo...

That it's, it's just a buzzword to make you feel bigger (normally there is some pills for that, but theses day, the important thing,...

PHP Based Job Scheduler

php, job scheduler

The requirement could not have been any clear "I want a native PHP application that does something similar to Obsidian Job Scheduler" (Guess you're not signing my leave form boss?). This was a new and direct requirement we got earlier this year. Scheduled jobs in PHP were being performed via cronjobs which perform http calls. No problem here, unless you w...

assembly, ti-99/4a, old computers

As part of my series on learning assembly for my old 80’s era computer, I’ve been developing a call stack, since the hardware doesn’t have one built-in. Today, we’re going to talk about what a calling convention is, and design one for the TI-99/4A.

Typically, a compiler targeting a particular architecture will have a calling convention defined, that is,...

How to SSH Tunnel!


After reading many various posts on SSH tunneling I failed to find a decent one that really explained how to do it without giving you a wall of text to read, so I have decided to write a little tutorial!

Machine Evolution (ME)

Me and my friend are working on something quite interesting, a program that optimizes designs of various machines: vehicles, drones, ground robots, etc.

The idea is to use a physics framework in order to evaluate how well-suited a machine is to some goal, on some terrain.

The main algorithm spawns many randomly generated candid...

Finally, a bit more about me.

blog, alexander, life

I've never posted an introduction, and came a little late in the picture for a staff interview thread. I thought I'd remove a shroud and be a little more level with the kind folks and community I've disappeared from recently.

I turned 21 in April (Hurray! And yes, means I was only 18-19 when I joined in 2010) and had very little going on in my life. I ro...

Internet Explorer

One of the biggest challenges for web developers is fighting with internet explorer in every way or form, to get to the point it's awful slow, ** and 10 years behind everything else, still we got to support it considering it is the default browser on most PCs. When at work, I usually do most of the testing on Chrome, chrome is always up to date, fast and...

DIV 0 is Not the Only Way to Fail (Apparently)

Hello everyone.

I just discovered something while trying to debug one of my assembly language programs. This is probably not new information for some people, but perhaps someone might find this useful to know.

The thing is: dividing by 0 is not the only way to raise an exception while executing the DIV instruction; dividing by 1 is just about as bad.

'Were You a Nineties Gamer?' Post-mortem Overview  

Last year I finished up a quiz game in Flash and released it around a few gaming websites. After seeing what went well, and what didn't, I thought I'd write up a few things about it that may not be obvious right away.

First of all, here's the game itself: Were You a Nineties Gamer?

I have noticed that this site does not address any Cold Fusion topics at this point, unless I have overlooked it. If you take a look at the main menu navigation at the top of Code Call, it does not show any CF programming at all. So for all of those who are interested in joining any kind of Cold Fusion discussions, this is the place. As an experienced Col...
