Perhaps more interesting is who shared birthdays with me:
That’s right, we’re awesome.
My girlfriend made me a german chocolate cake, and it kicked my ass. I feel like an old fart now. “Back when I was a boy I could eat TWO german chocolate cakes! Now I have one slice and I’m out for the count!” Not that this surprised her. It turns out a german chocolate cake takes 8 eggs and four sticks of butter to make. Basically, it’s more fat and sugar than it is flour. Stunning.
I’m leaving just past midnight on Sunday morning for SciPy 2010. It hasn’t really hit me yet. Weird. Should be fun, though.
Reminds me: I wish you could do list-like comprehensions with numpy arrays. I’d love to be able to write something like this:
A=array(fxn(i,j) for (i,j) in indices(A))
or something like this. Probably could be better, but you get the idea right? If arrays took generators, we’d pretty much be in business. BUT, they don’t. Maybe I’ll suggest it to someone. Or, try to improve that toy I made the other day.
Looked at the sprints sign-up. I kinda wish there was more of a paper trail–what I mean by this is that I can’t find the page where we originally proposed ideas anymore, and I don’t always remember what each thing was about. Anyways, it seems I’m maybe working on the following:
Hidden Markov Models in scikits.learn: Sounds cool, but I don’t know much about it! I might have to do some reading. Sounds like a pretty solid group of interested people though!
SciPy for multivariate approximation and interpolation: Just me and another guy, at least so far, and I don’t really remember what the suggested goals of that project were. This is sad, because I think it was my idea. XD Basically, I don’t remember if I was suggesting something like this but better (and maybe with bonus LaTeX output), or if I wanted better docs for scipy.interpolate. Hell, maybe I wanted something else alltogether. Plus, there’s no saying what the other guy’s looking for. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see!
