One of my other passions (aside from OpenBSD, Linux, philosophy, math, etc...) is Cichlids. Not just any Cichlid, though...Lake Malawi (Mbuna) Cichlids, in particular.

I currently have a 55 gallon aquarium housing quite a few species of Mbuna. One notable species is Melanochromis Auratus. I currently have four of them, all purchased before the color changes to distinguish the males and females. When one started to turn black and blue, I named him "Brutus". He happily...

On Bitcoinery

Posted 04-12-2013 at 07:20 PM by mintyninja41 (The Groovy Blog of MintyNinja41)

Ahh, yes. The humble Bitcoin. The futuristic digital currency that could revolutionise monetary trade. The Bitcoin, which I shall here call the BTC out of laziness, has much potential. The trade model allows for the anonymisation of trade, which is why the Tor Network is full of shady characters who prefer to use BTCs instead of physical currency.

Ok people...if you write code, do us all a favor:

Write **portable** code.

You are dragging innovation through the muck when you write Linux-specific crap. Please, for the love of all that is open source, keep other platforms in mind. Not only will packagers thank you, but your software will reach a wider audience (No matter how big "n" is, n+1 is still bigger than n).

Thank you.

More fun with Haskell plotting: Functions of functions

Posted 04-08-2013 at 12:56 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

import Graphics.Gnuplot.Simple
f x a = (x + a) * (x - a) * (x + 2*a)
fs f l = map f [1..l]
main = plotFuncs
         [Key Nothing, Title "(x + a)(x - a)(x + 2a) for a over 1..10"]
         (linearScale 1000 (-10,10))
         (fs f (10 :: Double))
See attached graph.

Firstly, let me just apologize for not posting sooner. Schoolwork has been grueling- mostly from my mathematics class- and I had no time to post. A tragic event has delayed posting here even further, but I am here! Also, my very good friend has launched a podcast on it's called J101. You can find it here . I am proud to say that in episode 3, I was able to speak on the podcast, under the alias "Dr Bob". Take a look at it if you can. That aside, I'm gonna relate...
