Looking back

I haven't actually "looked" at this blog for quite a while. I write to it, of course, but that's mostly as reminders for myself. But today I took it upon myself to at least change the template of the site. And wow... so much memories flooding back.

As I check back the links, even they have to change. There is no more foss.org.my, there is no more kaeru.my. Just memories of them now.

My first post was on Feb 9, 2008. Now it is August 21, 2016. That's a good 8 years later. Thanks to this blog I remember I left OSCC around July 28, 2009. Following kaeru to start off Inigo. That didn't last long for me. By April 2, 2010 I was already working at Logistic Consulting Asia. Doing reports in java for their internally developed system. And that stint lasted even shorter. By June 1, 2010 I was working at CIMB. And am still here till this day.

Even my tools have changed somewhat. I barely do any PHP programming nowadays. Mostly writing groovy in great grails framework. And python using the flask framework. And whenever I can, I write a little bit of java for android development. I've been meaning to get into iOS development but haven't found the time nor the motivation yet. Bought the books but that's as much as I have done so far.

Times have changed.

Dell Inspiron Mini 9

Yesterday went to Low Yat to buy my cousin a sub RM 1500 notebook. Of course with that kind of price tag it would have to be a netbook jelah. Anyhow, I was short on time so I didn't get to browse thoroughly. Just went for one quick round around level 2 and picked the one that I thought would fulfil his need. The thing is, as soon as I stepped out of the lift there was a shop that sold the new Dell Inspiron Mini 9 for only RM 1199. I was suprised. Just 1199. I couldn't believe my eyes. With original Windows XP and all. RM 1199. I thought there must be something wrong. Better survey first. So went around level 2. There was nothing that could match that price. Most of the other netbook from acer, asus and lenovo even was around RM 1600. So I decided I'll just go with the Dell lah. But to tell you the truth if I had money to buy for my own use, I'd go with the Lenovo Ideapad S10. Fuh.. she's one sweet mama... Smooth rounded curves, slim white profile. Pergh.. But anyway

First godot game published

I haven't published anything in google play for a very long time. I'm very happy to finally introduce my latest project to the public. It is a casual game called..... Add Block. Yeah.. The best original game name award coming right up. But seriously, try it out. Find in at the play store here . I love playing casual games on my phone. It's great to pass the time. But it doesn't really do anything for your skills. Or at least not anything for real life important skills (yes, I don't consider being able to identify the consecutive shapes or color as really important). So I decided to create one. So in this game, you practice your math skills. Find the adjacent blocks that add up to the total you need. So it's math, math is important right? Right?.... The levels are unlimited, the idea is that you keep on playing until you can't anymore. You'll die if you finally can't get the number of wins required to pass the level in time. You only have 100 se

Rendering template from string using thymeleaf in spring

Finally solved a very big problem for me... How do I render a page in spring framework that uses the thymeleaf templating engine? The string most probably will come from the database. After long hours of searching and trying, I've got it. First I've got a clue from this particular stackoverflow question . But following an example from there got me an error about class not found for ognl.PropertyAccessor. That solution was found here . So here's how I finally done it... First thing is to create a service where that service can be used wherever you need it in your spring app. @Service public class PortalService { private TemplateEngine templateEngine; private final static String TEMPLATE_LOCAL = "US"; private TemplateEngine getTemplateEngine(){ if(null == templateEngine){ templateEngine = new TemplateEngine(); StringTemplateResolver templateResolver = new StringTemplateResolver(); templat
