Newspeak » The Newspeak Programming Language

Newspeak » The Newspeak Programming Language

Newspeak based off smalltalk. Aiming to have the simplicity of squeak but wanting a function programming style to better allow for multiple core computers in the future.

It is still in early development and far from ready from prime time but you can learn more here at newspeak home or there are also a few newspeak videos to review as well.

Which Smalltalk? | Smalltalk Zen

A small article which summarise Smallalk VM's and IDE's though they are one in the same in smalltalk.

Soory to spoil the surprise but the ultimate winner was Pharo a fork of the squeak project.

Access 2007 Normalisation

I haven't had much experience with database normalization. I have started what i believed to be a simple project. To track horse races and update per race and horse a comments database.

I figured I would be able to use reports to later blog with for people interested in Australian horse racing. Here is a thread I started on Access World Forums. if you have any comments or suggestions on my normalization please comment. Here is the thread.

This is where my database is at. I am planning to use MySQL as the backend to my Access database so I can later query it as part of a larger program with Ruby and Sequel.


This is any easy one to slip through the cracks in case you missed it here is a good discussion from the Ruby google group on ruby 1.8 and the differences benefits/minuses of different string handling in ruby 1.9
