News from my other blog...

Several times in the last month, I have posted summaries of articles that I've written on my website. I'm going to stop doing that. I am just going to rely on LJ's syndication. If you're interested in my programming-related and math-related posts over there, you can friend nkleinnews.

Here's one last shot though...

Apple Missed Their Own Boat On iPhone Backups

We’ve been able to rearrange apps on our iPhones for a year now, right? We’ve been able to move apps around to different screens. For even longer than that, we’ve been able to reload our iPhones from backups. Why, oh why, does a backup not contain the information about which app icons are where? How [...]

Emacs + Slime + SBCL on Windows Vista

I just finished setting up Windows Vista to run in VMWare Fusion. Then, I finally tackled setting up Emacs with Slime and SBCL under Windows Vista. For the most part, I followed Robert Zubek’s gameplan. However, I quickly ran into a problem with swank’s temporary files not being in a writable location. I [...]

Developing Lisp in Ubuntu Linux with VMWare Fusion

I am working on some lisp software that I would like to run under Linux, MacOSX, and Windows. I have a PC that I can boot into either Ubuntu Linux or Windows Vista. Of course, I have a variety of services running under Ubuntu Linux on that box that the rest of my network would [...]

Kindle App Makes Progress

Last month, I wrote about Four Ways eReader Beats Kindle on the iPhone. It looks like the 1.1 release of the Kindle iPhone app addresses the first of those four ways. They now let you select between portrait or landscape mode. It lets you turn pages by tapping or swiping. And, it lets [...]

Optimizing Lisp

Paul Reiners recently posted some code to the TC Lispers mailing list. The code began from Paul Graham’s ANSI Common Lisp book. Exercise 13b has you adding declarations to some code so that the compiler can better take advantage of the types involved. Oddly, the code ran more slowly with his typing [...]

Lisp Patterns Question W.R.T. Clifford Algebras

Since I moved my website to Wordpress, I have been watching what search-engine searches land people on my page. Sadly, two of the things that get people to my page most often still have not been moved over to the new site from the old. One of those things is a C++ template library for [...]

Another Iteration on Iterated Functions

Earlier, I started exploring iterated functions trying to make some way-points between Mandelbrot set iterations. In that post, I left off with the following: if , then . Today, I am going to tackle the more general case of finding so that . First, a caveat You can see already in the above [...]

What Do You Mean By Close?

One of the blogs that I recently added to my RSS reader is God Plays Dice. That blog has quite a number of mathematical looks at everyday questions. One question, in particular, caught my attention: Which two states are closest together? Your first reaction is probably Zero! But, then, you figure that’s [...]

Flooded with Math

I am always on the lookout for Math-focused blogs to add to my RSS reader. This weekend, I went through the blogs already on my list and followed the sidebar Blogrolls and Links on them. I added another twenty-ish blogs. Now, I am up to my neck in old math articles. I’ve [...]
