This is going to be a clowns-quality article - sad and tragic and most likely unfunny. But some of you may yet chuckle at the contents displayed. For 'tis not just any article about funny stuff, it's one that has to do with computers and operating systems. So basically we're gonna showcase bad cases of algorithms, mathematics and coding translated into things you see on your screen.

We will talk about mail filters, battery life meters, download speeds, weird popups, and other things that escape the quality assurance teams, as they are too busy LAN-partying anyway. Presenting the short list of some of the funny, quirky, geeky things I've seen in the past couple of years. If you hate this, I allow you to send me hate mails.

This weekend I tried out Beignet v0.9.2 as trying out the newest Intel OpenCL code has been on my TODO list for a while and it's been working out rather well in my initial tests. Read more
