Working from home

I'm doing some writing at home today, because I am a little sick and feel rather achey. I'd rather not leave the house if I don't have to.

In other news, at a rough calculation here is my current work count for the tesis:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
17,653 / 100,000

What I'd ideally like is a modified version of the NaNo word counter thingies to keep track of my progress, and to keep me inspired and keen to keep going. I kid you not, those NaNo word tickers kept me going more than anything else - hopefully the same principle will work with the thesis...

No! Not at all! GA's and SA are tools used in Complex Systems Science for optimising problems that exist in hyperdimensional property spaces! Nothing random about it! Errr.....look; Pareto Fronts! E-Machines! Graph Theory! The Goodyear Blimp! *runs*

I had fun in 3rd year AI by combining GA and SA. Roboflib! For all your prisoner's dilemma solving needs! Look for it in all good stores!

The problem I found with trying to algorithmically solve Prisoners Dilemmas was that you couldn't factor in an incentive for the "prisoners" sharing a laugh and a drink down the pub after the dilemma was solved.

The word your looking for is "tetra-neutron."

Watch it.... I think I did a bloody magnificent job of taking chairman_loke's quasi-pseudo-science bullshit and making it sound plausible to anyone with highschool science.

Mt lj has been taken over by nerds.

Who would have thunk it?

Cause and effect.

Effect: "My LJ has been taken over by nerds"
Cause : You don't know anyone but nerds
