How to Make the Switch Statement Suck Less

How to Make the Switch Statement Suck Less
   The switch statement sucks. I firmly believe that the only reason it is still haunting C-style languages these days is that it has been with us since ancient times. The switch statement has limited usefulness, remarkably heavy syntax and is likely to produce errors.

DevReach 2013

DevReach 2013
   The 2013 edition of DevReach was held just a week ago. This is certainly the largest and highest quality IT event in Bulgaria (especially since there is no MS Days anymore) and probably on the Balkans. This year the event was even larger as the number of attendees reached one thousand and the number of countries represented was twenty five...

Happy Programmers' Day 2013

Happy Programmers' Day 2013
   Happy Programmers' Day to everyone whose job is to move bytes around or just does it for fun. I just realized I have not posted a programming article in a year. I really need to fix this or else I might have the right to celebrate revoked. Or maybe I can blame Nerds2Nerds for the lack of programming content here.

Ray Manzarek Rides the Storm to the Other Side

Ray Manzarek Rides the Storm to the Other Side
   Cancer has claimed another one of my heroes. Ray Manzarek best known as keyboard player and composer for the Doors broke on through to the other side. It is my impression that Manzarek was the musical force behind the Doors. His electric organ is quite possibly the most recognizable keyboard instrument sound in the entire rock music and his band is certainly one that changed the world and I do not mean only the world of music.

Jeff Hanneman Goes South of Heaven

Jeff Hanneman Goes South of Heaven
   Slayer's guitar player Jeff Hanneman has died yesterday due to liver failure. This was kind of unexpected. While it was known that he has health problems related to a spider bite on his hand nobody thought it was life threatening. Can Necrotizing fasciitis somehow cause a liver failure? Unlike many of his metal peers Hanneman was not known for heavy drinking or substance abuse.

   Slayer's best-known songs are written by Hanneman. Reign in Blood, South of Heaven, Season in the Abyss and Angel of Death will forever hold cult status among extreme music fans.

   I had the privilege of seeing Hanneman play live three times as part of the Big Four of Thrash Metal – Tom Araya, Kerry King, Dave Lombardo and Jeff Hanneman.

Update 10.05.2013
Turns out the reason was alcohol. At least things make more sense now.
