Plans for future

February 16th, 2009 by Ivan Lakhturov | 0 Category: Linux, Programming | Tags: | | | |

Nemerle is waiting, but it have to wait more, while I'm learning Scheme. I have a plan to solve some problems from Project Euler, first with brute-force (however, it is not always possible), then using smarter ways, and post some solutions here under the tags "projecteuler" and "scheme".

Another thing, I am setting up currently a Gentoo Linux system on my workstation, so, some postings about this will come under the tag "gentoo". One of the reasons to install it is an unexpected difficulty with SATA-drives under Windows. The motherboard (Asus M3N78-VM) supports SATA-devices in three modes: SATA (only three accessible), RAID and AHCI. The latest is preferable for me, as I need more than three drives.

It was understandable when WinXP 64-bits (I didn't try any 32-bits systems, as I need more than 4 Gb of RAM) refused to work in AHCI-mode despite all my tricks with this and that, particlularly, manufacturer's drivers embedding with the nLite tool. But when Vista x64 with proper drivers could not load after switching m/b into AHCI, I decided that it's time to try Linux again. I prefer Gentoo, one of the most hardcore distributions available.

Plan for this blog

This blog will be devoted solely to my programming trials, in particularly with the Nemerle programming language and its integration subproject with Visual Studio. I have little time now for doing that, as I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Netherlands (mathematical physics), but I'm interested very much e.g. in implementing refactoring for Nemerle.

I already spent around a year (of leisurely work) for the Nemerle integration project and implemented for instance such features, as Find usages, Highlight symbol and a mini-framework for extensive testing of such stuff. Then I made a large break in playing with the integration (however, continuing with Nemerle itself) lasting up to now, and I'm planning to proceed with it, contributing from time to time.
