frozenfractal.com now available over HTTPS

As of just now, https://frozenfractal.com is a thing. This means you can browse my site securely, knowing that the NSA can probably not see which pages you are viewing. Sort of. But in fact, everything on this site is public. Why use HTTPS to encrypt the connection at all? A... Continue reading

The new new frozenfractal.com

I didn’t plan it this way, but it seems to be becoming a tradition: redesigning this website around the new year. Last time, we went from this… … to this: Why couldn’t I leave well enough alone, and had to redesign it to look like this instead? Why a redesign?... Continue reading

Website has been launched!

Well then, since last Monday, the Frozen Fractal website is unofficially up. And since today, it’s official, because now there’s a blog post announcing it!

Two problems become none

No truism is always true, not even this one. I recently clashed with two common conceptions in software engineering: “All problems in computer science can be solved by another level of indirection.” – David Wheeler “Some people, when confronted with a problem, think ‘I know, I’ll use regular expressions.’ Now...
