This Wired article on the Internet Archive reminded me of a talk I once attended (at UCD) by the founder, Brewster Kahle. In addition to being technologically impressive, the Archive’s WayBackMachine is tremendously fun. Try visiting Google back in 1999.
I did the unthinkable and upgraded my OS (in my final year of my PhD!). And surprise-surprise, some of my code wouldn’t compile anymore. I figured I needed to rebuild my macports-installed *nix software but ran into problems with gcc45 and libstdcxx. The issue is a ld64 bug, that was fixed using user adrian’s solution (replicated here):
sudo port uninstall ld64 sudo port -v install ld64 sudo port clean libstdcxx sudo port -d build libstdcxx build.jobs=1 sudo port install libstdcxx
A little exhausted after a couple of paper submissions to IROS. Looking forward to a break for a few days while I re-organise and re-think. And some opportunity for reading (Kantz and Schreiber’s Nonlinear Time Series Analysis that I bought ages ago but haven’t finished, and Chaitin’s Meta Math that I have read but have largely forgotten).
Plus, my desk is clean again!
Just testing some . Some of the world’s most favourite equations:
