Now a lot of people write about what would happen if a web-developer decides to become a freelancer. Also, they write about some challenges that the freelancer may encounter, namely, they are hunting for new orders at first, then dealing with the influx of work, and finally overcoming own laziness. However, I still have not seen any article about what would happen if the freelancer decides to stop freelancing work that consists of the orders, prepayments, hunt for new customers, and so on.
Do I have the right to write such an article, perhaps you will decide, but I have an excuse to say that after about a year or more working as the web-developer, I started working as the freelancer on the vast web-market and was working there nearly two and a half years.
I think most people who have a device-based on Android OS heard about the secret codes.
There are some very powerful codes, for example one of the codes on my Samsung Galaxy Tab allows me to set up the GPS, which speeds up the search of satellites, the other code allows me to set up the mode connection with the network (GPRS, EDGE, 3G ...) that allows saving the battery between mode jumps in places with unstable connection.
I am going to talk in this article about the device analysis of running applications on the codes in Android OS, and how to find all the codes and applications, and as well I will explain how to make an application that will respond to its code.
In addition, I will give 6 pictures, some code and lots of text.
Today's LCD TVs that are in the medium price ranges often have the mode of expansion rate up to 100-200 Hz due to the technical tricks of picture perception by person.
For example, TrueMotion technology in LG TVs, Motion Plus in Samsung, Perfect Natural Motion in Philips, and RealCinema in Panasonic.
How can we use them properly when connecting to a PC?
A task of handling hashtags has arisen in the context of data analysis from Twitter. It was needed to take hashtag and split it into separate words. The task seemed primitive, but it turned out, I underestimated it. I had to try several algorithms until I found that.
This article could be considered as a kind of chronology of completing the task with the analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of each used algorithms. So if you are interested in this topic, please make yourself comfortable here.
It should be noted that the task of breaking large text without spaces is very common in NLP. Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created in the 1970s.

SMS abbreviation is known to all of us. The fact that it is a service for an exchange of short text messages between the subscribers of cellular networks is known even to each child now, who got the first mobile phone before entering a school. But not everyone knows how this technology is made and appeared. Today, we would like to tell you the story of SMS emergence, where Nokia played a very important role. We will also mention some aspects of this technology and some interesting facts.
Hungarian designer Martzi Hegedűs has created the original font, named Frustro, which is based on the idea of impossible objects. This is one of the types of optical illusions. Like the classic Penrose Triangle, the letters of this font appears to be facing two different directions simultaneously, and it is impossible to create a 3D-model for them.
Let’s imagine that we have an electronic payment system with the database table operations. For example, we want to calculate the size of average operation. It is easy, here's a query:
SELECT avg(amount) FROM transfer;
generated in 3850 seconds
Now let’s imagine that the index should be the latest one, the entries are made every second in the table, and after a month there are millions of them. To aggregate the same data each time is very expensive. Traditional databases do not offer such optimizations. What to do?
Recently, a new excellent Time.is service has started its operation. This service is showing the approximate mistiming of your computer clock with the international atomic time (usually an error in Ajax is 0.02-0.1 s.). Also, it shows the time in 7 million places in the world and compares the time in different places.
