This past two weeks…

Lately, things have been rather slow over here… i don’t intend this to be the case, it’s just been a bit overwhelming.

So, without further ado…

Core dump…

For those of you that still remember the good old days of core dumps, here’s a post that follows that philosophy. 😉

It’s been quite sometime since i last had a chance to put some content here on the blog, nor have i had time to expand on the interesting comments that have appeared and so on… time has been short lately.

In some sense, this is good news: research has really taken the best of me (as opposed to, e.g., some of the network management tasks that have plagued me in the not-so-distant-past 😉 ) — last week i gave a talk at Syracuse, and if all goes well, maybe i’ll be able to talk a bit about it here. 🙂

Testing blogging from Emacs…

If this works, it shows that Emacs’ weblogger mode (see more at Blogging with Emacs) is working just fine! 🙂

Ultimate geekdom sorcery! 😈

Testing Scribd…

Let’s see if this works… if so, i’ll come back in a bit to explain it better. 😉

Atualizado (23-Feb-08): I believe i have found a solution to embedding Scribd/iPaper documents into WP. Check this out and see if it works 😉 :

Super holiday post…

Well, as you may have noticed, the blog has been a bit slow lately. Largely, this is due to the holidays… and some “other” stuff. 😉

But, let’s focus on the business here: although i haven’t been posting, i did keep a record of everything that should be here. So, in this post, i’ll bundle it all together. 😈

The interesting bits of today…

There are some quite interesting bits that came out today; here’s the list:

Quite a list, isn’t it?!

The first item is a little (flash? java?) game where the player has to create a ‘gravitational field anomaly’ in order to accomplish some tasks, e.g., jumping, avoiding sharp gears, etc. Quite neat! 🙂

The second deals with category theory in geometry and physics… but it’s a public lecture that Urs has to give. So, it’s “category theory made easy”! Maybe this can make some things more palatable to some folks! 😉

The last item is just self-explanatory: I’ll just sit and rejoice on Amazon’s probably best move… ever! 😎

Enjoy… 😈 !
