Parallel Computing Research

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

while reading slashdot I stumbled over this interesting website:

The Landscape of Parallel Computing Research: A View From Berkeley

Lots of interresting information about parallel computing, videos and even slides.

Configuration files

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

As a long time Slackware user I customized some of my config files and I guess my blog is a great place to back them up :)

~/.vimrc

~/.gvimrc

/etc/X11/xorg.conf

~/.ion3/cfg_ion.lua

A note about /etc/rc.d/rc.mysqld: It contains the line:

SKIP="--skip-networking"

If you ever try to connect to the local mysql server with Java you have to uncomment this line (it cost me serveral hours to figure that out…)

Frist p0st!

So finally I was convinced to try out wordpress and start my own blog. And I avoided it for so many years. Damn Web 2.0 ;-)

I am not sure if I will blog regularly (or at all) nor do I know what I will blog about; but thank you for reading this anyway :)
