This is going to be a tiny post. So I came across the problem that OS X does not have any lv_LV locales, it has Lithuanian (lt_LT), but no Latvian. So I did what any developer would do – I created my own and also released it on GitHub.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted something larger than a tweet. A lot has changed since…
So I’ve got a Mac – after 18 years of PC I’ve finally returned to the wonderful world of Apple – It has changed a lot since the last time I was there (it was Mac OS 7 & 8 back then). It’s changed to something really good – and I can agree with everyone who has switched to OS X, that it just works. All the preinstalled apps, like iMovie, Pages, Mail and Maps – they are a great set of products made to be useful from the very first boot.
Recently I’ve noticed a pattern that’s evolving around rapid development. The development process has shifted it’s time consumption from writing the actual code to system setup and configuration.
It’s been a while since I wrote something here and there’s a reason for that. I took some online courses, because … well first of all I love to learn new things and second it was about software/hardware interfacing – a.k.a. the base principles in developing your OS.
Do you know what’s a table, a bitset, the stack, the high and lows. Yes, no, not quite sure … well in any way this post might come in handy. This glossary is aimed at Intel x86 and x86_64 and any consequent solutions built on PC architecture.
It’s been a month – pretty long vacation away from my most beloved hobby, but I’m just a human, I have my needs. I like snowboarding, so I went to Austria and did a proper powder riding. I’m still playing in the band, and I did a few gigs here in Riga. And last but not least – I have a job – and deadlines are killing me. But enough of appologies, here it is…
While writing my OS I’ve had my time playing around the possibilities that open up mixing these two languages together. So I wanted to share my knowledge.
As I’m walking through the great adventure of building my own OS, I occasionally have some questions and notes to write down. So this is my “journey so far…” post. You can follow my progress on GitHub, because I’m pushing updates more often than I write these blogs.
I ain’t dead, I’m still researchin. It’s kind of never ending story, but still I need to mark few things down. Today it’s all about memory layout and storage (hard disk drive).
Either it’s globalization or not, you have to decide it at last. Today I was reading an article on Wikipedia about Game of Thrones. The best TV series ever! I came across one sentence that made me think, well actually I had this thought a long time ago, but I wanted to talk about it in public.
