Not the last console application you would ever write

 
event

Given the antecedents and how many times this has been done, who would have thought there was still even more libraries to parse the command line and dispatch commands?

Equality + implicit = nasty_surprises

 
event

There is a maxim in API design: the principle of least surprise. Whatever an API does it must look obvious and self explanatory so that the developer that uses the API is not surprised by the result or any side effect of such API.

Implicit conversion operators in .NET make it so easy to surprise they should not even be considered in a good designed API.

2131 is enough

 
event

2131, that is the amount of days that have passed since this blog’s last redesign. That is 5 years, 9 months and 29 days. That is really a long time.

We are entering a new period in this blog in which more content is going to appear after last draught, so it sounds like a good idea to have new and fresher look.

Home is where… wherever

 
event

I found around 117 clever quotes about home, but I felt like making it 118 just because.
I mentioned briefly that I had been using an iPad Air for my post-PC tablet experience. It came to me discounted and it served me well, but I am back to Android so this post is kind of post-mortem analysis of my iPad/Android experience for the usage I make of tablets.
It is, by definition, subjective, so you might not have experience the same things I have experienced and that is OK.
