Predictor arrays: Forecasting
using a set of simple predictors feeding an adaptive meta-predictor, with
applications in playing rock-paper-scissors, amazing kids of all ages, and
detecting atrial fibrillation.
Duct tape is like the Force ... it has a light
side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together. Use the duct tape!
Lego blocks are even more versatile than duct tape.
Linux on the Toshiba Libretto 70 describes
my adventures with what at the time was the world's second-smallest
full-fledged UNIX PC. This hasn't been updated since mid-1998, but might
still be of use to someone. More recently updated notes on this subject
can be found at Linux on Laptops
Compiling and linking with libc5 under Red Hat Linux
5.0/Intel or later: how to do this, and an RPM that contains everything you
need. Also includes a replacement for GNU ldd 2.0.7 that correctly resolves
links for binaries linked with either glibc or libc5. This has been updated
for RHL 6.0 and 6.1; it might be useful if you need to generate binaries for
machines running very old versions of Linux (Red Hat or not), using somewhat
less old development systems.
My sons, Benjamin and Jeremy, have web pages with details of their science
fair projects from quite a few years ago.
Jeremy (who was almost 8) investigated why
the instructions for growing crystals always say you shouldn't disturb the
solution while the crystals are growing.
Benjamin was 11 when he did a project
about reading (in which you can participate!); the next year, he did a study of
the effects of external catastrophes on a sandpile model of evolution.
The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.
