One of the more obscure, yet immensely useful features
of C++ are member pointers. Member pointers can be used
as parameters to specify on which member of an object a
funtion should operate. Theoretically they can be used
with CUDA code, but there are a couple of issues in
NVCC and it's not obvious how to work around these.

Anyone who's on high-volume mailing lists knows this
problem: some threads are irrelevant for you, but grow
by tens or hundreds of mails each day. Incrementally
archiving them in mutt is quick, but
tedious. Google's Gmail has a mute feature for
these threads. mutt did not, so I wrote a patch.

modules 279.3 don't work out of the box with Linux 4.1.3. I've
collected a patch set which gets them to compile on my Gentoo systems.

Last week I received an e-mail titled You've won The
Listserve. In case you don't know: The Listservedoesn't refer to
just any mailing list, but to an experimental lottery: each day one
subscriber is given the chance to broadcast his ideas to all
recipients. So now was my turn.

Frustrated by vmware-modules-279.2 not emerging on your Gentoo box? Fear naught! It's just a question of collecting the right set of patches.

The Message Passing Interface, or MPI
(not to be confused with the Max Planck Institutes), is in
the peculiar situation of being one of the most widely used
technologies in HPC and supercomputing, despite being
declared dead since decades. Lately however, my nose is
picking up some smells which are troubling me. And others.

48003. That's the number. Although I might be wrong, as
I've just counted those users who have a couple of
friends and who haven't set their profile to private.
