Kind of busy lately

April 1, 2009

Last two weeks were very busy. Our company released a new version of the software and the deadline was really tight. Managers are nervous, programmers are overwhelmed, everybody wants to get the job done in time which is not always possible. The risk to break something when fixing another thing is high; also I do not like last-minute fixes. But all is well when it ends well 🙂

Besides that I had to work on a arbitrary precision implementation for our calculation module. I guess we were the only calculation engine in the world where 1/3*3 is not 1 🙂
I had to go with different approaches like IntX, BigNum, fraction implementations. All fixed the problem, but were not acceptable performance wise. So decision is still pending.
