The Schism

I’ve been a very bad blogger recently. Part of the reason is certainly laziness, but there’s also the fact that I felt more motivated to write about photography recently than about software whereas this blog has become focused almost exclusively on software, so it didn’t feel like it would fit in anymore.

For this reason I have decided to start a dedicated photography blog, creatively named Mark’s Photography Blog. I’ve started it off with a post on 10 of my favorite images from 2011.

What that means for this blog is that, for the rare occasions on which I will post, I shall focus it almost exclusively on software, which is also reflected in its new awesome title. I’ll also try to overcome my aversion to writing smaller, less epic posts, which will hopefully also result in a higher posting frequency.

On the more epic side of things, I still owe you one or two more posts on SGen, and I’d like to write a post on the lock-free allocator we’re now using in SGen, but which is independent of it and is pretty cool. What can it be used for? Dynamic memory allocation in signal handlers, for example.
