  • C9 Lectures: Stephan T. Lavavej - Standard Template Library (STL), 6 of n

    The ability to make a workable Y-Combinator(Fix point recursion of annonymous functions) aren't really possible to do (DIrectly) with the MS version of the STL at this moment, but you can make your own class to make the combiner since this seems to be whats limiting:

    // IMPLEMENT _STD tr1::bind
    template<int _Nx>
        class _Ph
        {    // placeholder

    Seeing that in the VS2010 headers make me sad inside Tongue Out  BUT an implementation should be find if you use the bost::bind or tbb::combine_each to allow strict binding for a solution with 1 combiner function for the usage in the C++0x lambda calculation.

  • E2E: Whiteboard Jam Session with Brian Beckman and Greg Meredith - Monads and Coordinate Systems

    Well, there needs to be part 2 to actually finish the linear lambda calculus in a form similar to P -> X, so we can use the result, to allow a monadic transformation from X -> Y for any P in the Context of M.

    I'd Jam with you on the board but then we would need another board Big Smile Because you both together is a must to keep each train of thought, until the ideas converge enough to have a formal transformation from one world to the other.

    This is great, but don't think that your competely going to outpace us, do what feels natural as long as there is backing theory in order to build from.  Don't fret about losing some as you tread forward, because multiple watchings could also help bake the thought process in ones mind enough to allow a continuation such as part 2 of the Brian Greg jam session for this formal calculus for arbatrary P.

    And to you Charles, its about time you get some E2E content out, my brain started dieing without the fruit of such brilliance you manage to capture on camera Tongue Out


  • Internet Explorer 9 Platform Preview 3: A Look at ECMAScript 5

    I scored on 8x8: 172800, wasn't even trying, on a side note, html5test.com is what you should work towards., along with as much html5demos.com capability as comprehensively possible. Smiley Good luck is all i say! I truly hope you are also preparing for this future that all other browsers are also aiming for too.

    So is Brian still watching this post??

  • Brian Beckman: On Analog Computing, Beckman History and Life in the Universe Redux

    I wonder if i need to trigger a reply by replying, I can't really ask you directly on that graph/equation I spuriously thought up.

    But I would agree as well that using F# is the best way to go for almost anything,unless all you are doing is bit-fiddeling like crazy.


    On a side-note I have recently acquired a PlayStation 3 NOW ALLOWING ME to use the "MASS" Physics engine in the PS3 SDK which is Haskell based and actually faster than the C based physics engine for allowing inter-core communication thus preventing socket bandwidth saturation and FINALLY I get to program a Cell Broadband engine in Haskell no less!!! Google Tech talk Here For Reference : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHd0u6zuWdw


    I get excited just thinking about 8 cores of power like this!!!  Especially creating my own execution VM that changes a loop invariant of the loop making the loop "mapped" +8 per pipeline and "reduced" by the load computation controller/tracker. Something I have planned to not be limited to the x++ increment by one problem that tends to always limit true work balancing that is making the many-core problem so unmanageable in line-by-line assembly instruction binaries, and not just course grained groups of lambda's in functional languages.

  • Brian Beckman: On Analog Computing, Beckman History and Life in the Universe Redux

    I have been wondering if this equation I created a while back is true, I heard of that renormalization technique which I didn't know of formally, but I used it many months ago in a thinking spree I had to try and show how a black hole both creates and destroys itself at the same time using principles such as time stops at infinite gravity, and at infinite speed there is infinite gravity.


    The black arrow shows our current "moment" where there systems are in reasonable balance, also when speed (where I suppose speed could be considered and imply movement in space) and time are intersected for equalization.


    So this picture might look odd but I used it as a way to create the little equation.... newtons equation shows when the green text as a black holes effect is arranged to be negated/renormalized.



    My equation derived 

    So Brian may I get your professional opinion on if anything jumps out at you other than the manually drawn curves, and the lack of Béziers in OneNote? Smiley

  • Lili Cheng: Designing Experiences for Social Computing

    I agree that her being a woman in tech is irrelevant, she's a really awesome "Social Architect" that conveys herself as a really cool person and Microsoft employee.

    Charles, too bad you can't get interviews with gals without your flame-haired friend Wink

  • Windows 7 & General Mills bring the future to your kitchen

    1) This app I really like, I'll be emailing a ton of family members about it who might care about 3000+ recipes for free instead of buying cooking books or going online to random domains.

    2) This app is a WPF app, and first iteration WPF apps are almost always sluggish, but the main reason why its UI is laggy is because it's accessing Betty Crocker's remote recipe database and pulling info down from their internal DB, thus as slow as a web-app.  Hope it uses the local Compact SQL Install as much as possible though.

  • Maria Klawe: Scholar, Scientist and Microsoft Board Member

    1) She is indeed one of the most awesome women in technology I've seen, unlike most other women in almost being scripted in what they say to an audience without background content and personal knowledge of their own.  Its reassuring that gals like her are playing a major role.

    2) I'll be looking forward to seeing the effectiveness of Windows Mobile 7, possibly a true remote cloud OS to challenge a ChromeOS using native binary execution remotely.

    3) I only wish there was some major gas to fuel my sparks in many aspects of today like re-invention of Electricity generation, successful cancer research, parallel execution in a perpendicular fashion compared with OpenMP( I hereby coin perpendicular computation Tongue Out ), and a few ways on how to understand the physics of Gamma-ray Bursts and limits of frequencies beyond just the speed of photons as light.  If my spark needs to become so big it completely combusts and consumes the modern world we have today with the changes I want to make like a Phoenix from the ashes of its demise to help everyone on the planet and any future generations long after me then so be it, but I swear I'll aim for the best outcome for all the world Smiley 

  • IE 9: Standards and Interoperability

    The shrugging your shoulders at the acid3 test is the worst action I've seen for so long, I won’t directly call anybody ignorant but I'm definitely implying that if MS ignores such an important standard I don't care how much GPU rendering power you've got, you'll lose to others in the sea which can eat bigger fish.

    These tests are MASSIVELY important and are not just a spec test, it’s an implementation coverage test to which IE really REALLY fails on with flying bombs all over the place, and I truly hope they pick their feet up.  The spec does indeed test for the corner cases on implementation, but that very reason is why web pages can be browser agnostic and consumable by any engine, IE needs to play better in the web space to the extreme compared to current performance.  Sure as an OS and hardware abstraction, Windows is indeed top class.  But IE is soooooooo hoooorrriibbllyyy SHITTY GUYS so much that I'm surprisingly not ashamed one bit for being completely honest in my opinion about the subject of the IE team trying to live in their own self-created world to think outside their own renderer.


    IE team, for the love of god and anything holy, there is a big reason all other web browsers do their best to conform to passing the acid3 because it enables the crap-ton of bad * amateur code that the renderer HAS to be able to handle.  The browser is the gateway app to an internet full of malware, if it tries to only focus on the cases its good at or is strong, then it will fail easier when trying to be broken or even by accident.  The acid3 to me is a robustness of implementation test, and my 100% true recommendation to the IE team is at least try to play nice with the others, to let them live on without too big a grudge against the IE.

    So sure I've been harsh to IE but I just feel I had to vent on how amazingly frustrated it made me watching the team not be ashamed of their suboptimal 32 score on the acid3 from their own smugness and denial of importance it truly is as an implementation safety net mechanism to close all the loose ends which IE leaves untied and hanging loose.


    I really want them to pass the test (at least try yo improve their conformance) because it’s important for the very thing they try and tout about, interoperability.


    Aim for this sort of goodness Smiley Good luck IE, were all counting on you!!
