1. Status of Subatomic Particle Simulator: PARKED

    Well, there have been occasional minor updates on the status of the VIGoV Subatomic Particle simulator since it was exhibited in January 2014, but no real progress, despite optimistic sentiments voiced in the first half of that year. Since then, I have gone on to do first-year physics in university …

  2. My chimera Debian system

    Well, it's been a long time! Since my last post, I've discovered that there should have been a fifth "D'oh!" in there – turns out that the way the PCIe slots are arranged on my motherboard means that it's impossible to pass through one graphics card without the other. That probably …

  3. My experiences with XEN VGA passthrough

    The following post gets quite technical, and employs a bit of jargon. You can read the whole anecdote if you want, or just scroll down to the bottom if you want some advice related to Linux Mint Debian Edition, XEN and VGA Passthrough.

    I recently built myself a new computer …

  4. Happy 85th Anniversary to the Warners!

    Well, I posted back in September to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the initial airing of Animaniacs season 1 episode 1, so I might as well also celebrate the anniversary of the 65th and last episode of that season!

    Because of a "newly discovered" cartoon of the Warners revealed late …

  5. Happy Anniversary!

    I can hardly believe it! This blog has now been in existence for an entire year! This is also the third anniversary of the release of Portal 2 (at least in this time zone), another fact which some of you may find scarcely credible.

    What a year it's been. Proof …

  6. Status of Aperture Ireland 2.0 and other things

    I was just browsing through the archives of this blog and saw a post mentioning Aperture Ireland. I realised I'd never actually checked whether or not Valve had gone about porting Portal 2 to GNU/Linux. I fired up Steam and it seems that this port recently entered beta.

    Had …

  7. Some observations about the proposed Comcast-TWC merger

    First of all, allow me to apologise for the recent week-and-a-half of downtime. Storm Darwin took out my phone line. Seemingly, while my connectivity with the outside world was a lot more tenuous than what I'm used to, Comcast announced that it wanted to merge with Time Warner Cable. It's …

  8. Subatomic Particle Simulator now on GitHub!

    Well, I have just spent an entire weekend using Windows, amounting to probably more hours than I had spent with this operating system in the previous six months! Of course, this meant that I had to endure loads of automatic updates, their drain on bandwidth and automatic restarts! It was …

  9. Release of Source Code of Subatomic Particle Visualiser

    Well, this is kind of embarrassing. In October, I implemented the GNU Scientific Library as part of the science project I mentioned in the previous post. Since I was working towards an actual deadline, I guess I was too hurried to thoroughly check what licence the GSL uses. Apparently, I …
