GrepNinja's weblog is a somewhat ordered collection of thoughts and resources mostly related to software engineering. It simply tracks what GrepNinja finds technologically useful, interesting, or amusing at some given point in time. Warning: high techno-geek factor!

For anyone who may still use this old weblog of mine, I just want you to know that it looks like Blogger finally *did* recover my archives and that this weblog does pretty well consolidate Grepninja's musings from March 2000 through early 2004. My current technical weblog is Tobler.SoftwareArchitecture(). I have a few other weblogs on other topics. Be healthy! Be happy! Be creative!

GrepNinjaLog is now reactivated! Blogger.com has implemented many changes and, as of today, I was able to republish my missing archives. It appears that the archive files from 2/28/2001 to 2/13/2003 have been restored and are now available. CSharpener's Weblog is still my main technical weblog but now that Blogger.com has restored the missing files, I will continue to post some information here. I have been able to implement a very convenient search capability on GrepNinjaLog, thanks to a free Atomz Express Search account provided by Atomz.com. You can perform basic search using the [::..Atomz Standard Search..::] box in the top left area of the page. Power users can use the [::..Atomz Advanced Search..::] at the bottom of the page. These tools are useful for finding things in the archives.

Sadly, I am closing GrepNinjaLog as of today. Why? Because the Blogger.com service has become crufty and blecherous. Blogger.com has apparently lost or trashed my archives from 2/28/2001 to the present and I have been unable to contact any human being at Blogger.com who will respond to, much less care about, the blogging tragedy they have caused for me. I have started a new technical weblog, CSharpener's Blog. You are welcome to follow my technical ramblings there!

David Fox, a member of the exobox, Inc., team, is probably the person most responsible for the Magic Lens idea (see Composing Magic Lenses). David previously worked with Ken Perlin on Pad, which became Pad++, then Jazz, and is now turning into Piccolo (see the previous note on this. You can review David's impressive resume. AFAIK, David now works at Lindows.
