6. MIT application

5. Stanford: Stream data manager

In applications such as network monitoring, telecommunications data management, web personalization, manufacturing, sensor networks, and others, data takes the form of continuous data streams rather than finite stored data sets, and clients require long-running continuous queries as opposed to one-time queries. Traditional database systems and data processing algorithms are ill-equipped to handle complex and numerous continuous queries over data streams, and many aspects of data management and processing need to be reconsidered in their presence. In the STREAM project, we are reinvestigating data management and query processing in the presence of multiple, continuous, rapid, time-varying data streams. We are attacking problems ranging from basic theory results to algorithms to implementing a comprehensive prototype data stream management system.

4. Using tla for archives

Look! I'm being used as an example! <laugh>

That's it, I've got to check out this checksumming thing... My name is at stake! ;)

2. School Bus

It's not much, but if I don't force myself to write, I might never get around to it. =)

She glanced at the clock impatiently, trying to ignore the giggles and peals of laughter that erupted from the classrooms next to K-1B. 8:35. Where were her kids? By this time, Annie would be gazing out the window, daydreaming of castles and princes. Mike'd be fidgeting at the back, unable to keep still. Laurie would be dutifully working on the exercise for the day. She wrung her hands. Where were they? Kindergarten students were almost never late. The school bus service dropped them off at 8:15 everyday. One or two might be truant, but an entire class?

She surveyed the empty chairs with growing concern. Locking the classroom door behind her, she hurried to the principal's office. "My students--", she began, but the look of horror on the principal's face robbed her of breath. She turned to the television set that transfixed him and her world blew away with the smoke billowing from the yellow crushed metal that once protected her angels.

1. cal-desk-calendar support for planner-diary.el

I patched what I hope is the most recent version of planner-diary.el from tla to optionally utilize cal-desk-calendar. cal-desk-calendar is an add-on for diary-mode which displays the day's events in a neat "desk calendar" like way. I wanted to be able to have this pulled into my day planner pages instead of just a list of the scheduled event. To do this, I added a variable 'planner-diary-use-cal-desk-calendar', which when set to non-nil will cause cal-desk-calendar to be used. I patched planner-diary-get-diary-entries to handle this.

My changed planner-diary.el:

My elisp skills aren't the greatest, so I'm open for corrections or enhancements. I hope others can find this as useful as I have.
