Who I am

My name is John Bower. I am a freelance software engineer from the UK. I mainly work on web and mobile things.

A recent thought

All thoughts are now stored exclusively in a Lucene index and managed by Elasticsearch. I am still using Postgres to manage authentication.

The main motivation for using Elasticsearch is the 'More Like This' feature which link thoughts together automatically.

Why zode64

      
function zode64() {
    // Euclidean distance from origin to my home village coordinates
    var euc = Math.sqrt(Math.pow(53.8192, 2) + Math.pow(1.2545, 2));
    // Base 64 encoded ASCII string of euclidean distance
    var eucEncod = btoa(euc);
    // eucEncod == 'NTMuODMzODE4OTE0MjI5'
    var eucEncodSub = eucEncod.substring(7, 11).toLowerCase();
    // eucEncodSub == 'zode'
    return eucEncodSub + '64'; // append base encoding value
}
// zode64() == 'zode64'
console.log(zode64());
