At certain points during one’s lifetime, it is essential to stop for a second, think where you are in life and enjoy it to the fullest! From February until end of May, I was making my final project for my bachelor degree which I on the 24th of June “defended” in an oral project discussion, which not only marked the end of my bachelor degree, it was also the beginning of several changes to my life as I knew it.

Malware spreading through Google Chrome Extensions

Today I noticed a facebook-friend added a lot of links to a bit.ly URL, while tagging alot of her friends (including me) in the post. I did some investigation on the links and found them to follow a PHP file on a webserver running on an IP address 87.98.175.xx.

Finite State Machines in MatLab

Finite State Machines in MatLab

Finite State Machines (FSM) can be an awesome tool when creating software. Creating FSM's, is typically split into multiple phases, the first being trying to visualize the workflow the FSM is representing. This is often done using "state diagrams". Let's have a look at an example. The following diagram is for a state machine, taking in an input string, and trying to match the 4th, 8th, 12th etc. '1' in an input string. So the STM will keep looping around, until it finds a multiple of ...

Today I sat down and finally took on the task of adding my old blogposts from when my blog was running "WordPress". The problem in converting the old posts into Blogengine.net was the export I made back then, was using WordPress' own extended RSS format which BE.net doesn't read.
