These days I have returned to work with Erlang. I can not really say what was the reason or impetus for doing so, but anyway, Erland is an interesting language, now and in the next time. In order to support my work a little bit better I have implemented a very simple syntax highlighting, compilation phase and file type for Erlang in Apples Xcode. Of course Xcode has its flaws, but the general approach it provides has some advantages.
What to do in Erlang ? Well, I had never lost my interest in SVG, and so I will try a little render engine for SVG, Not because I think that is what the world is waiting for, just to combine to interesting issues, and to provide a graphical interface for my Artificial Neuronal Network and Cellular Computing engine (dream, dream). Such kind of applications may be well suited for the distributed computing approach of Erlang.
The other thing I returned to is drawing. In fact I never drop this hobby, but in the last months and years it was put in deep background because of time. That should be corrected. Here, my main interest are characters or figures, in the style of Cartoons, Comics or Oil Pastells. The picture in this post is one example, a result from a so-called Manga drawing course. Ok, the word "course" is not appropriate, it was just a kind of gathering, but the people there were really interesting.
So let's go on !
