Running a Genetic Algorithm on an Amazon EC2 Cluster

I've started working on a simple tool to run genetic algorithms on a Linux cluster. I'm using MIT's StarCluster utility to create an on-demand Linux cluster on Amazon's EC2 cloud computing service. Using this as a starting point it should be pretty easy to deploy as much computing power as I want (budget permitting).

Step one was Amazon Web Services (http://aws.amazon.com/) sign up. I already had a normal Amazon account,...

Precompiled cint dlls for linux (ix86) here

Why does my answering machine want to know what year it is?

Posted 05-25-2012 at 03:52 PM by drask

This is completely off topic, but I've been wondering about it for a while. The last few times I have bought an answering machine, it wants me to set the date so it can announce the day and time when the call was received, a very helpful feature. Then it wants to know the year. So it knows the day of the week, hour, minute, and year. Why does it want to know the year? I mean, if it knew the date and month, then it could do useful things like adjusting for daylight savings time. But as it is, it...

automated network settings for a laptop

Posted 05-24-2012 at 07:09 AM by neonsignal

Sometimes when a laptop is used on multiple networks (such as work and home), there are different network settings to be configured (particularly if static settings are required).

The guessnet package can be used to augment ifupdown for this purpose; guessnet allows automated tests to be run when the network interface is initializing (such as testing the router mac address) as a way of choosing a configuration.

An example would be mapping eth0 to a static network setting...
