I’ve just tried out IntelliJ IDEA and also Android Studio, have to say IntelliJ IDEA is better in terms of performance. Eclipse has recently become very slow and irresponsive regardless of how much heap memory I gave it, regardless of which operating system it runs on, and regardless of whether or not it has lots of plugins or a fresh new download.
IntelliJ IDEA looks neater, the font size are smaller and colour code is more suggestive, natively supports Groovy and Scalar. The only thing that tinkles is the lack of support for other languages. In Eclipse that’s a whole bunch: Java/Groovy/Scalar/C++/Php/HTML/Javascript… you name it. IntelliJ IDEA is not supporting anything other than Java and its scripting language yet, in short it doens’t support any compiler other than Java. Even Android Studio lacks native C support and thus anything that involves native code cannot run on this new fancy looking IDE.
The developer say they’re working on C++ support, let’s see.

$40.10 Hosting plan for 3 years, R U F*kin kidding me?

I luckily found a coupon from CNET that gives 50% off any hosting plan from HostMetro.com. This company's still a fresh air compared to the godfathers HostGator and GoDaddy, providing cheap (not too cheap) hosting, but not cheap service. I've been using it for a while and so far so good. Unlimitted everything, amazingly fast responses from Customer Services, and many things are free just by asking. SSH for example. The code "CNET" is still working so be quick to grab this chance.

Trung Nguyen vs Starbucks

If you're not Vietnamese, chances are: you don't know what the heck is Trung Nguyen coffee. You might heard about Vietnamese coffee thou... Anyway, when Starbuck finally drag its fat ass into Vietnam market, there's an outraged reaction from domestric coffee manufacturers, of which Trung Nguyen was the brand that outcried like a baby. They claimed there's a war and they're there to win it. Funny thing is: many people actually believed it. Have a look at my infographics and draw your own conclusion! Read More »

Aparthied State?

Aparthied State?

What I'm worrying about is the fact that some "white apologists" and Maori advocates are trying to seperate Maori and the rest of the society, by giving them more and more preferential rights. Read More »

Working On New Zealand Traffic Sign Recognition

Working On New Zealand Traffic Sign Recognition

Most countries in the world, especially those who signed the Vienna Convention of Road Sign Design have a very rigid red rim-based sign system: most of the signs have red rims surrounding them, only informative signs are in blue. The inner colours don’t matter because you only need that red rim to extract the sign area from a scene, thus reduce a LOT of processing time. The colour system NZ chose is very prone to illumination, and very natural-bases: you have orange and yellow and green are basic colours of trees and plants, you have blue is the colour of the sky and black is the colour of many artifacts, so filter those colours out means you accept the whole scene. That's what makes my application impossible to speed up. Read More »
