**The maths of randomness**

I really like the section about Bayesians vs frequentists. I wish there was more on this topic.

You might want to try this.

**Teach Yourself Scheme in Fixnum Days**

I wish I had the time to read this.

Eine neue Version von Emacs ist da.

Finally, I have some free time to try some more programming in Processing.

I had a look at the p5.sound library. As far as I understood, p5.sound builds on W3C spec Web Audio. I’m not very good with audio. Haven’t tried it since my Basic days. I’m trying to figure out, how to create simple beeps. All samples I have found so far include loading some mp3 file. But is there any way to beep the speaker or create a similar sound?

Let’s see if I can figure this out without having to work through the entire Web Audio spec.

Wau. Schon 4000 Exoplaneten. Und immer noch nix für uns Menschen dabei. Schade.

Whoa. I didn’t know about the Cauchy horizon.

I have no idea about them, unfortunately.

Not sure what to think about this. Poetry was never of much interest to me.
