Notes:

I live in Leiden, a city in The Netherlands, Europe. I am proud to work at the CWI, where Guido van Rossum did his wonderful invention of the Python programming language. I have a M.Sc. in Computing Science from Leiden University. My research at CWI started March 1st 2002 and it is about software components; viz. software design, modeling, formal methods. Part of this work is the design and prototype development of XML transformation technology (projects AML and RML).

Wow, another silly Internet Explorer bug, the diamond-suit character (HTML ♦, like ♠ ♥ and ♣) is distorted, and I need it on my bridge blog. The Mozilla browser has a better diamond symbol, but still not perfect. Weirdness. Look: ♠ ♥ ♦ ♣

rmathew: Just read SICP, it's great. For a LISP interpreter there is the MIT one of course (SCHEME). But that one only works from within a GUI. A commandline Scheme is PLT, use "MzScheme.exe -r %*" in a .bat file for the CMD shell (assuming you are using Windows).

And there is CLISP, which is NOT Scheme! But on Windows that is not so easy to use from the commandline, you have to do something like this in a .bat file:

@d:\clisp\base\lisp.exe -M d:\clisp\base\lispinit.mem -B d:\clisp\base\ %*

    London bombed

Strength to the London people, or how do you say that well in English.
I think the terrorists made a mistake, Londoners have proven very resilient before, in WWII.

Who are these muslim terrorists?
Yesterday I read in the newspaper that they call people like me a "kufar".
And that they do not wish me dead, they wish me muslim.
It's nearly a thousand years since the crusades, for God's sake!

Should I use their open source software? Or contribute to it? Make my software available to them?
Questions.

titus, your rating is "1", meaning that I have to follow the link "entries suppressed at threshold 3" to see your diary postings.

Why does titus have such a low rating, somebody voting 0 all the time?

Just found out I can now post articles. Hmm, let's try one. <duck/>
