Well is it? If you expect a very short answer from me, I’d say: absolutely, even if you just want to regularly back up your data, which is a very good idea. But in this article I want to take a look at some ready to buy consumer NAS devices, a cost-effective self-built and self-hosted one and some well-known cloud services and I want to compare how much they cost if you use them for one, five and ten years. This is not a product test and I won’t go into too much detail, I just want to sum up some options you have and when you should consider getting one or the other option and how much they will cost you. Continue reading Is it worth buying a NAS or cloud space?
You might remember that one article I wrote about Lambda expressions in Java last year. In that article I took a quick look at what Lambda expressions are and how you can use them in Java. This article was quite popular and I thought it’s about time that I write something about regular expressions here on nerdhut. However I only wanted to give you an introduction about regular expressions and how you can use them in your Java code to detect patterns in a text or to search for something.

Just a little off-topic article with video. I wanted to do this, since the game came out in 2008 and I’m currently working on a video that I want to release in 2018 ,as this article suggests, so I needed some recordings of me playing bowling in GTA IV and I thought to myself: “Why not try it now?”. So I tried it and here is the result. Enjoy!
In this article I want to cover an alternative I’ve come across while building the “real” word clock project. This version will not feature a 12×12 LED-Matrix display. Instead it’s made with LED strips and only the significant words on the clock can light up. With this method you can’t display custom messages, but the whole build won’t cost you as much either. Read all about this build in this article or watch this video:
I recently worked on a video that I plan to publish in 2018 and I had some shots left-over which are nice, but didn’t make it into the video. I decided to publish them in their own video (I also included some nice clips, that actually made it into the final video, just a sneak peek). Watch it here:
In this part I’ll design the 4-phase-clock of this CPU and I’ll connect all the missing connections between the components. Continue reading How to design your own CPU from scratch – Part 4
