Running Tubuntu Ruby (Trinux) on my Life Touch Note

I ran Tubuntu Ruby (Trinux) on my Life Touch Note using Limbo PC Emulator. First, I had trouble running it because it had the old Limbo PC Emulator on it, but I fixed it by uninstalling and rebooting the machine.

shutdown command doesn't work so I used halt command to stop the OS.

Simple study of Scheme on EMONSTER S11HT (HTC Tytn II) using Pocket Scheme

EMONSTER S11HT (Tytn II) running Pocket Scheme 
As you might know, Scheme is a computer programming language that is a dialect of Lisp. I've been fascinated with Lisp and Scheme ever since I borrowed a Japanese book from the local library called 「素数夜曲 - 女王陛下のLISP」which is translated as "Prime Nocturne - Her Majesty's Lisp". The book contains interesting Scheme tutorials and story of mathematics, and is a fun book to read.

The book is quite pricey, currently selling for 3,888 JPY or $32.17 USD at the current exchange rate.

EMONSTER S11HT is a perfect machine for scribbling Scheme because it has keyboard, which sadly most smartphones nowadays lack. The Internet Explorer is okay as a browser, but Opera Mini is more decent to use, so I use that to lookup Scheme tutorials.....

Pocket Scheme can be downloaded here:

Link of the Day: Turing's Zeta-function machine

Link of the Day

Turing's Zeta-function machine, 1939

Blueprint, 'Zeta function machine', signed D.C.M. and dated 17 July 1939.

The reason I put this up for today's link of the day is because I was reading Cryptonomicon I borrowed from the library. In it, it was saying that Zeta function was used as a random number generator.

Tried FreeBSD on Sharp Zaurus SL-C700

Tried FreeBSD on Sharp Zaurus SL-C700 today.
It worked flawlessly by following the steps on this Japanese page here.

First I had to write the image file into the 1GB SD card by Rawrite32.
Then just following the steps on that page made it work! :)
