A few thoughts on Parallelism

It’s been a while. I am very sure many people experienced connectivity issues to my server. I believe these issues have been resolved. While searching in my old archives, I stumbled across an essay that I had written as a small part of a bigger exam in the university in France, a while ago. It seemed like an…

But it’s a dream, right? Everyone has the right to dream from time to time. At…

While developing code for my projects at the university, I came to realise that much of this code could prove useful to others.

I finally got the time to update the site, and complete all the changes that I wished for. It took me a while. This is mostly because in order to do all the things I wanted to, I had to transfer all my data and migrate my database to a completely different CMS. I was…
