Secure deletion of data on a drive (attempt 1)

Last Update: 26.02.2009. By kerim in python

A while ago i came upon an article about secure deletion of files. An interesting topic as i remember myself wondering why it would be needed to overwrite a file up to 30 times in order to be sure it can’t be restored somehow.


Rabid Ratings for Django

Last Update: 22.06.2008. By azarai in Javascript | django | python | snipplet | tools

For my new pet project i’d like to have some nice fancy starlike rating stuff, but without stars :-) Luckily i found one over at ajaxrain called Rabid Ratings. It uses nice looking hearts and is a out of the box combo with ajax and a php backend. Yep there was my prob again, php. So i took a look at the php backend and decided to quickly port the main logic to my django app and make it available to the public.

Last Update: 12.03.2008. By azarai in game development | pygame | python

In an earlier post i wrote that i am going to code a simple CRPG with pygame. With an unknown destination, but it will probably be an very interesting way. Yeah i know one should spend a bit more on thinking about the whole game, gameplay and so on, but i’d like to tame some of the technical issues prior. Luckily Kerim joined and i don’t have to do it all by my own :-)

Markie - A Simple Markdown Editor

Last Update: 31.01.2008. By Kerim in python | tools

Ever since Azarai switched to Django and Markdown i spent too much time trying to make a blog entry look nice. I don’t know why but it definetly is too much for me type in some syntax, save and then have to refresh a browserview.

So … as usual .. the lazy half of me just said: let some tool do that for you. So i created “Markie”, my small WYSIWYG-Markdown editor.
