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.

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))

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...

DebEX Barebone (Debian Wheezy/Sid) with LXDE and kernel 3.8.4

Posted 04-03-2013 at 10:30 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

About DebEX Barebone
The system is a based on Debian Wheezy (upcoming Debian 7). There is also certain elements of Debian Sid (unstable).
