Producer and Consumer – Part 4

We are quickly approaching the end of another work week. In the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul it appears that most businesses are back to normal. The only exception is that many office workers are still working from home and people is required to wear a mask when in public spaces. Most people that want to be vaccinated against COVID-19 have done so. We need to get most (never generalize) people to comply in order to achieve herd immunity.

This is the fourth installment of the sequence of posts related to a producer and consumer connected via TCP/IP. In this post we will not add functionality to the producer or consumer. We will explore some functions and methods that we have at our disposal when encrypting and decrypting files using the Advanced Encryption Standard. Continue reading “Producer and Consumer – Part 4”

Serialize and Deserialize BST

Good morning! I am back. A couple weeks ago I have a selective / optional procedure on my left knee. Once I decided to get it done I was not able to do so due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After two years it is done. I will not go into more details at this time. I need to get my right knee done in the next couple months. This whole thing started a few years ago with some incidents involving a car and later riding a motorcycle. Due to the fact that I will be having the same procedure in my right knee I decided not to get details from the surgeon or Google. After all is said and done I will get more details. That said, I chose the surgeon and facility by asking friends. That was a very good idea.

On a separate note, last week I read “Five things I have learned after solving 500 LeetCode questions” by Federico Mannucci. He is a Software Engineer in Italy, who loves traveling and cooking. Apparently we share some professional and personal interests. Continue reading “Serialize and Deserialize BST”

It has been over a week since my last post. A lot of things have happened besides COVID-19. As you might know I live in a suburb in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. I live in Dakota County. On May 24, 2020 the county had experienced 33 deaths due to the pandemic. Today is June 03, 2020 and the count is up to 59. The count is going up. It seems that a second wave has been forecasted by models for about June 15, 2020. As the rate things are going, I would not be surprised. Continue reading “Analog Clock in JavaScript”

Closed my Linkedin Account

This morning I finally had time to close my Linkedin account. I had been thinking to close the account for a couple years. In that time I have logged in a few times a year. I have seldom contacted people in my ‘network’. For the people I care to keep in touch with, I use email, my cell phone and text messages. That said; in the past few years I have been thinking about two reasons to close the account. Continue reading “Closed my Linkedin Account”
