Laser Microscope

Sun, 21 Nov 2010 05:03:07 +0000

When I came across Teravolt's Laser Microscope, I decided that this was something I had to try. For his setup, he used a 250mW laser. While I don't have anything near that dangerous cool, I do have a bunch of 5mW green lasers laying around. While the 5mW is incredibly bright in a dark room, […]

Vortlach for Parshas Haazinu

יערף כמטר לקחי ר' שמחה בונם מפשיסכה notes that תורה is compared to the rain; just like there is no visible effect from the rain when it falls, but only afterwards when plants sprout and begin to grow, so too the effects from learning תורה are often not immediately visible, but only appear after some […]

הנסתרות לה' אלקינו והנגלות לנו ולבנינו עד עולם לעשות את כל דברי התורה הזאת The כתב סופר sees these two categories as referring to the two possible times for משיח to come. The hidden one is the fixed date, which is unknown. The revealed one is the date if and when בני ישראל will be […]

Vortlach for Parshas Ki Savo

Sat, 28 Aug 2010 20:25:16 +0000

I've decided to start writing down some interesting comments that I've seen on the the פרשה. I don't know if this will continue or not; we'll see... כ"ו:ד' -- ולקח הכהן הטנא מידך: The רמב"ם rules that although there is no specific amount specified for ביכורים, our חז"ל established the amount as 1/60th (cf. ירושלמי […]

New Hebrew Dates (2.0) released!

Thu, 24 Jun 2010 10:53:38 +0000

When it rains, it pours... I just rewrote most of HebrewDates. The new version is 2.0.0, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page. There's basically no reason to use yesterday's 1.0.4 release. New features: Complete rewrite of the date identification; much more reliable Code actually looks slightly sane now. I'm no longer embarrassed […]

There's a fix out for Hebrew Dates, which correctly supports the 2010 theme used by default in WordPress 3.0. Now dates generated by either the_date() or get_the_date() are supported. The new version is 1.0.4, and is available at the Hebrew Dates release page.

Working Portable Ubuntu with Jaunty (9.04)

Tue, 14 Jul 2009 10:42:46 +0000

I recently discovered (courtesy of Ubuntu Geek Portable Ubuntu, a Portable Windows application which uses Cooperative Linux [version 0.7.3] to run a Linux kernel as a Windows process! I was very pleased, but found a few small glitches in the installation and upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to the latest Jaunty 9.04 release which I'll […]

Wed, 22 Apr 2009 04:14:47 +0000

I've released a replacement for both LogSer and ToSer called SerCat. It supports both stdin and stdout, and provides very basic terminal emulation (no arrow keys or functions keys yet).

It's a boy!

PingTunnel Improvements: Win32 & Syslog

Mon, 12 Jan 2009 12:05:20 +0000

For anyone interested in clever networking hacks, I strongly advise checking out ptunnel. This software package allows you to tunnel any TCP (such as SSH) over a ICMP (i.e., ping). Since even the most restrictive firewalls (whether corporate, Wifi (don't steal...) or other) usually let ICMP traffic through, this little piece of code can let […]
