Wucca.it is born!

Hi everybody! Last year I started to work to a personal project called ColtivareOrto.it with a couple of friends. Actually the project is already online and in continous development. So we decided to open a (sort of) devlog in Italian language, called Wucca.it to talk about the project itself and web developing in general. I just ended to write the first article about implement and customize a jQueryUI slider, so I’ll be glad to see some of you the new site!

Thank you!.

Projects that kept (and keep) me busy in these months

Hi everybody! I don’t know why i keep update this wordpress release but not post something new.. maybe i lack of inspiration or i just think that people don’t care (and me too). So, this is the first 2009 update, let’s start.

  1. NeXtRL.it FanZine
    I was six years old when i bought and read my first magazine, console magazine, and now i’m a sort of publisher of a community-made magazine, the NeXtRL.it Fanzine (started on December 2008). Here are the published issues.
    I made a lot of experience with both amateur (publisher 2007) and professional (quarkxpress) press software and i studied some way to share works (the written articles) and simplify human interactions with a “nothing-can-go-wrong” module (see point (2)). Now i’m working on the third issue of the fanzine and i’d like to do it with adobe indesign (another pro app) because i didn’t enjoy my experience with quarkxpress – complicated also on easy tasks like pick the right tool from the panel and no color picker!
  2. NeXtRL.it – Form to submit articles for the FanZine
    It’s a simple form with some javascript  that uses a validation engine (in javascript too) found on this tutorial. People can enter various type of articles, filling in the different fields that the chosen type of article requires. Then they can modify, delete or send (to themselves or to publisher – me) their ready-to-print articles. Then the articles arrive on my google docs account so i can share them with my collaborators that check for grammar errors and i finally i can paginate the final articles.
    I made it with php, mysql and IPB API because nextrl.it uses IPB Forum. So here it is the link, but you can’t access if you’re not logged in – and it’s all written in italian, too.
    Source code not available because i made it just for nextrl.it
  3. NeXtRL.it – Tournament script
    Here, i enanched an old script that i made adhoc for nextrl.it a year ago. It was messy and hardcoded, now it’s more flexible and still a bit messy 😛 I think i need to switch my php’s habits to OOP and start comment while (and not after) coding.
    Now the script can handle more than one tournament and of various type: ladders, points, victories. I rewritten quite the 95% of the code and it took me a week. This is the link and, also there, you can’t access if you’re not logged in and it’s in italian too.

  4. Automata & Languages: Cocke-Younger-Kasami Parser
    I made this parser in a month for university purpose. I will post and explain the code when i will pass the related exam, so here there are some info form wikipedia. Basically, i did a program that manipulate a context-free grammar to eliminate epsilon production, unit production, put it in chomsky normal form and last parse a word with CYK algorithm and say if it belong, or not, to the given grammar.
    Made with Java (instead of C++) for it’s wide library of string manipulation functions.
  5. ns2/nsmiracle
    I started to study about my thesis: understand how ns2 and nsmiracle modules are written to implement specific ones. Next monday (the 18th of May 2009) i will know more about those modules.
  6. WWTBAFM: new release?
    I though two times about release a new version of wwtbafm: two separated homebrew, one to play and the other to update questions. when i’ll have time and i will get my nds back i would give it a try, now that palibs are fixed to work with latest ndslib

That’s all, let’s hope more updates soon :)

UPDATE: oh, well, i forgot to mention that i have also build a simple rs232-ttl interface to mod my x360. I will post schema and how-to on next post :)

Sourced Removed :\

hi! i don’t know if you know what happen to DragonMinded DSOrganize but this forced me to remove all the source of my works (apart from PAFont that wasn’t a program of mine. i just upgraded the code :) ). This doesn’t means that my works aren’t opensource because you can feel free to ask me about source codes. I’ll be happy to share my knowledge with you.

WWTBAFM is under development and the “basic&ugly” gfx is almost done. please come back later :)
