A database dump can be tedious, and I asked myself, "Where can I get better hardware for cheap?" Enter: AWS EC2 On-Demand.
Investigating string indexing algorithms to speed up data compression on embedded systems, and a method with especially low overhead.
An implementation of a novel image compression algorithm using bit plane slicing with python's SimpleCV library.
I couldn't find an embedded data compression library that would work in my resource-constrained environment, so I created my own: heatshrink.
