So, these are probably more useful here than sitting in a dusty binder…
- “Common Lisp, Typing, and Mathematics” by Francis Sergereart – good (long) paper about one application of Common Lisp; Postscript here
- “Getting Started With LaTeX”, David R. Wilkins – here
- AT&T Graphviz – very very useful program for visualization of directed and undirected graphs
- Croquet (from the Croquet Project, not to be confused with the Croquet Consortium) – by my description, an attempt to extend the original 2-dimensional paradigm for a GUI into 3 dimensions; by their description, “Croquet is a powerful new open source software development environment and software infrastructure for creating and deploying deeply collaborative multi-user online applications and metaverses on and across multiple operating systems and devices.”… I think it’s an interesting project, anyhow. Check out some of the papers Alan Kay helped write, and look at some of the videos.
- JGraph – some sort of graphing and visualization software, open-source and written in Java
- Ploticus – more graphing and visualization, not as shiny as JGraph, but not Java either; apparently good for on-the-fly graph generation, for websites and such
- TeXmacs – ” GNU TeXmacs is a free wysiwyw (what you see is what you want) editing platform with special features for scientists.”… it puts Mathematica’s rendering to shame.
- Very useful link for using matrices in POV-Ray
- Media and Particle Systems in POV-Ray, here
- Photons & caustics in POV-Ray, here
- “Weaving the Web”, Tim Berners-Lee – “The original design and ultimate destiny of the World Wide Web, by its inventor.”
- Grasshopper Enterprises, “Borders of science, boundaries of imagination,” might be complete and total bullshit, but the page has some interesting things on lucid dreaming and other workings of the mind
- cachegrind – cache profiler, part of the valgrind suite, designed to pinpoint cache misses in code
- I don’t know why, but I wrote down “BDI2000 JTAG”, maybe because the Abatron BDI-2000 can be used to debug the Linux kernel via JTAG?
- “The Grand Inquisitor” from “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoevsky - I think I’m supposed to read this because I don’t know why else I’d have written it down.
- Voyage Linux – Debian-based distro, designed for embedded systems, like Soekris boards; it is suitable as a WAP, firewall, gateway, NAS, etc.
- IPv6 Tunnel Broker – reach IPv6 internet freely by tunneling over existing IPv4 connections, courtesy of Hurricane Electric Internet Services
- The Honeynet Project – goal is to increase the security of the Internet by “learning the tools, tactics, and motives involved in computer and network attacks, and sharing the lessons learned”
- “Links to Tens of Thousands of Legal Music Downloads”
- “The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier” by Bruce Sterling; available here as “literary freeware”
- “The War on the Unexpected” by Bruce Schneier
- http://www.looknohands.com/chordhouse/piano/ – helpful web applet for figuring out chords and scales and numerous other things about which I am clueless but trying to learn
