What's SAP? And why is it worth $163B? Every year companies spend $41B on enterprise resource planning software, commonly known as ERP. Today, almost every large business has some sort of ERP system implemented. But most smaller businesses generally don’t purchase any ERP system off the shelf, and most
KnightOS is an operating system I started writing about 10 years ago, for Texas Instruments line of z80 calculators — the TI-73, TI-83+, TI-84+, and similar calculators are supported. It still gets the rare improvements, but these days myself and most of the major contributors are just left with starry eyed empty promises to themselves that one day they’ll do one of those big refactorings we’ve been planning… for 4 or 5 years now.
The millennium bug is back with a vengeance, after programmers in the 1990s simply pushed the problem back by 20 years
Back when Discord was a wee little chat platform with no rate limiting whatsoever, it's API had already been reverse-engineered by a bunch of bot developers who then went around spamming random servers with so many messages it would crash the client. My friends and I were determined to keep our discord server public, so I went about creating the first anti-spam bot for Discord. I am no longer maintaining this bot beyond simple bugfixes because I have better things to do with my time, and I'm tired of people trying to use it because “it's the best anti-spam bot” even after I deprecated it.

A list of things (not only) computer science students tend to erroneously and at times surprisingly believe even though they (probably) should know better.
Font hinting is an opportunity to get on-screen text rendering as close to the art of printing as the available screen technologies allow.
When I have written my article for Trandoshan [/building-fast-modern-web-crawler/] I didn't expect so much positive feedback. More than 15k views on the article, hundred stars on the Github repository... I am very happy about it. My first plan was to stop the development right after 1.0.0 was working and the article was published in order to move on new project(s). But despite of that I have had several cool features in mind. Since the project seems to interest some people I have decided to im
Many devices now support an operating system wide dark mode or dark theme experience. This post explains how dark mode can be supported on web pages, lists best practices, and introduces a custom element named dark-mode-toggle that allows web developers to offer users a way to override their operating system level preference on specific web pages.
