World War Z movie: I hope they get it right!

Friday, July 17th, 2009

Well, not related with Blockhead or StupidZombie, instead is the movie of the book World War Z. Looks like its getting a new writer, hopefully they will get right this one.

The book is epic in size, you have to wonder if they will be able to pull something like this out!

Refactoring, refactoring…

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Yep. Old code was … old, and kind of ugly. Okay, just plain ugly. So refactoring was in order, like on the Ping Factory class which looks much cleaner now:

			desc = aDesc;
			id = aId;
		}
	}
 
	private static PingFactory factory;
       // Rest of the code ommited :)

it is amazing how simple Enumerations simplified the code on this class. Now working on the ping controller, that section is long overdue :)
