  • Fixing Inkball to work on Windows 10

    NB: Following my advice is a breach of the EULA one accepts when they install Windows, so it is assumed that you understand this before reading any further. A while ago, I re-discovered the Inkball game, which I found bundled with an early release of Windows Vista, namely, the Ultimate version. After trying it on […]

  • Stuff I Haven’t Tried Yet

    I’ll admit, I can get too focused within the scope of certain problems and not think about more interesting ideas. In this post, I’ll summarize some problems I haven’t solved yet, but are likely feasible, and if so, I’ll explain how they could be solved. New problems or ideas on this page may get added […]

  • My Experience with Qt: Quick and Quick3D

I wrote mostly on Windows, and the discovery of open-source projects led me to discover the Qt framework. I’ve spent more time than I would care to admit on understanding Qt: it’s IDE, the runtime libraries. I feel it necessary […]

    In this article I’m going to explain how to calculate a real-number based FFT using FFTW, providing the source code. First, though, I will introduce some important concepts. Then I will provide code with comments within it. I will also provide a header containing sample data from a single channel sound file whose frames have […]

My old website, that used a Python CMS and ran on Apache on an older version of Debian, is out, and has been replaced with WordPress and Docker containers running on a newer version of Debian 10. Boy, that was a process; deploying Docker containers in production […]
