Backing Up…

October 27, 2007

After the excitement with my computer last weekend (it blew up) I’ve decided that now that I have it working again that I should reformat everything so I can try and have a sensible set up with hard disks, so I can use the automatic backup facility. Just now my c: drive is far too small, so everything is dotted around on various partitions here and there. Which makes finding stuff very confusing. Especially as Windows keeps getting confused and creating new music, photo, document folders for me.

A some what dull job, but it should make finding things easier. And I can relax, drink coffee and listen to music as I go. And hopefully everything will be working smoothly for next month, when work starts again on the AlK&AlC album/demo 🙂

XKCD and Matlab – a happy and productive combination.

October 3, 2007

Today I have discovered My morning has been followed this pattern: Genreate test image. See if my matlab algorithm can find the target in my test image. Look at xkcd while the computer computes. Look at results. Tweak algorithm or generate a new and slightly different test image. Read more xkcd. Repeat.
