EvoGrid, EVE 

EvoGrid development is almost finished for this prototype. We are running simulations constantly in preparation for ALife12.
I've used simple-cdd for making Debian install disk images with EvoGrid packages bundled.

Looking at using OFX to import EVE transaction data into GnuCash.

EvoGrid, RagTag, ext3 undelete 

Finished the RagTag project to beta stage. This will be used by Uformia, and may be released as an open source project.

Continued work on the Evogrid.

While working on the Evogrid, accidentally deleted my .c files instead of .o files. Fortunately I was able to find ext3grep, that allows you to semi-automatically parse the ext3 inode structure and journal, to identify transactions involving the file before it was deleted, and the blocks used in those transactions. With a bit of luck, the blocks will not have been re-used, leaving the contents of the files available to be read off the device. I was able to recover 2 of the 3 deleted files, with the lost file overwritten due to me being in an editor when the file was deleted, which wrote the changes on exit.

Ragtag, EvoGrid, Laptop 

Both the Cappuccino based CMS (now named Ragtag) for Uformia, and the EvoGrid for DigitalSpace are continuing.

Picked up a new laptop, after the old ones PCMCIA slot broke. Between the 512MB of RAM and the 4200RPM 80GB HDD (which I hardly used any of), it was well and truly aged. For half the price I paid for it then, I got a machine with 2GB of RAM, 5200RPM 512GB HDD, with inbuilt wifi and running Windows 7 Home. Since this is primarily aimed to be a remoting/web client, this is more then sufficient for what I need.

EvoGrid, EVE Online 

Continued work on EvoGrid, running into problems with the design not allowing for multiple bond types, as well as cases where our reference (GROMACS) simulates simple molecules as single particles, where we would rather simulate their components, in order to allow atomic interchange.

Been playing EVE Online for an hour or two a night (more on weekends), and have been building spreadsheets to try and find profitable trade opportunities. At my current level I'm finding that the simplest of incomes sources is the best - mining ore for immediate sale. However I've joined a corporation with some members at 100% refining skill, meaning they will refine ore to minerals for free for me, with no loss, allowing me increase the sale value by a further 10% to 15%, depending on market conditions. Unfortunately, 10% of 1,000,000 is only 100,000 so not a BIG increase.

Summary of last month 

Uformia:
  • JomRes extension and reports
  • Rackspace Cloud servers - Cheap VPS with small disks and lots of RAM (assume you won't use it)
  • Zimbra Collaborative Suite - Requires 1GB just to run. Installs its own instances of common daemons
  • Redmine - Looks straightforward, haven't used it yet. Ubuntu Lucid's Ruby packages will install on 8.04 LIS. Update librubygem (or something similar) to fix gem problems

Digital Space:
  • Slow development on EvoGrid - Self guided introduction to Valence and Electronegativity to approximately model charge variation during bonding.
