The internet has grown to be a very plentiful place, and like the real
world, it's mostly full of trash.
A peaceful refuge was needed for just a few maverick survivors of the
internet boom - this is .aware, and all you need to
enjoy yourself is an icy can of coke, with all the fine data on this

We are a crowd of borderline personality computer enthusiasts
with our own webspace, one among many. However, you might find the odd one or two
interesting write-up, source or program in our archives
and we're confident that all the nice HTML makes it a pleasure for the eye.
For those who wonder: The reason why this site is more or less dead is that I do math for a living now, and I barely find the time for funny stuff or code hacking any more. A shame really, but I am enjoying myself. Don't worry, the site will always remain online, unless weird laws force me otherwise. And don't forget to check in around christmas, because christmas time will always be code hacking time.
XKCD hates Fight Club by on 07/14/11 12:21
It completely broke my heart. How could I choose between XKCD and Fight Club? But seriously, he got it all wrong. Fight Club is about shooting yourself in the mouth. While on the topic: I am not dead yet - just barely alive. My thesis is slowly easing a cold, jagged blade through my ribcage and towards my heart.
IRC trouble .. again by on 02/24/11 03:42
Yadda yadda, some shit with IRC, I barely care any more. Apparently, we are now at psaux.org. DNS should update in a few.
New PGP Key by on 01/05/11 19:35
I have a new pgp key. That is due to a complete recycling of all my passwords and other sensitive credentials because I apparently got infected with SpyEyes at CCC. Looks like I shouldn't have gone for teenporn.exe after all.
I had a lot of fun reading the RTLO article in the GNY zIne and found myself very incompetent when it came to inputting that RTLO char anywhere. Hence, I wrote a little program that would set my clipboard to just the RTLO char, allowing me to paste it into browser forms and other stuff conveniently. I did this because the other tool that was linked isn't open source. Granted, my app has no GUI, but at least you can see its insides.
I have been googling all over for a way to do this, without avail. This seems to me like the best way to do steps and cases for proofs in LaTeX. I use the ntheorem package for nice placement of the qed symbol and the enumitem package to use a custom enumerate environment for the steps. The example should illustrate it all.
I made a folder for LaTeX code snippets since I will probably be doing plenty of LaTeX in the near future.
