I come onto this forum occasionally to check up on things. Mainly to see if the forum is still around in a day and age where Reddit is basically the go to gathering hole for programmers. But personally, I think Reddit is missing something in any of its communities, though I'm unsure what that is exactly.

I don't use this site very often...

Exporting part of a webpage to PDF is a solved problem, but it took some digging to find the simplest solution that just worked.

Several hours of googling and trying out snippets here and there, here is the sequence that led to success:

I saw a couple posts about the Snake game recently, and I realized that I've never actually tried to tackle this game. This post is only about design, so if that idea doesn't interest you, feel free to skip this entry.

Alright, so Snake is played on a grid of W,H where W = some width and H = some height. A snake segment is a 1x1 cell at...

I found another enormously slow method in Python: getframeinfo.

from inspect import getframeinfo


It's eating up 21% of my code time. I only call it 90 times in a certain program whereas some other funtions are used 5000 times. To give you an idea of how slow it is, it is 535 times slower than the...

a handy solution template for rosalind.info

Readers here may have noticed that I like the rosalind.info problem set - it's got interesting problems, it's well structured, and the submission process is pretty clean.

The Cloudy World

As I am sipping a cup of coffee and writing this blog post on a Saturday afternoon, I keep thinking about how fast time has passed. I joined DreamInCode on May 16th, 2009, just a few months before going to college. Today, it's May 13th 2017 and these numbers make me realize how much time has passed (not to mention, make feel a bit...

ASP.NET Core MVC Sniplets

Icon 1 Comments
We are using ASP.NET Core MVC. It is cool but finding up-to-date information is a little tricky because it is so new. Well, not brand new, but most information available is still for earlier versions.

I tend to search for "ASP.NET MVC ..." and initially assume that it hasn't changed. (Most of it hasn't changed.)

I'm not...
