Dear #lazyweb #datastructure #nerds,

Is there a name for a lookup table keyed by symbolic trees? In other words, I want to attach values to trees where each leaf is either a variable or a constant. Then, given a query tree, I want to quickly find all values whose keys can be unified (via a consistent variable mapping) with the query. For example:

Store ("foo" (x ("bar" x))) => 1
Store (x ("baz" ("bar" (y y)))) => 2

Query ("foo" ("baz" ("bar" z))):
* matches 1 if z="baz"
* matches 2 if z=(y y)

I imagine this should be a well-studied problem related to regexp parsing, JIT compiling, symbolic integration, prolog-style matching, etc.

Yeah, I have that reaction to good descriptions of Knuth-Bendix, and the Wikipedia article is pretty impenetrable.

Does anyone know why so many #android apps show up as "not compatible" with my Nexus 7? I'm casting about for the right set of build.prop tweaks that will make the Play Store let me download some of these, but won't break my device:

etc...

Is it a 1st gen? Sometimes camera permissions can cause this issue.

Pop quiz: you probably know that the military action of WWII on American soil was mostly limited to Alaska and Hawaii. How many Americans were killed by enemy fire in the lower 48 states?

If, like me, you guessed "zero", then you ought to go read about Elsie Mitchell.

All these years, I never knew (nor thought to ask) how soda-can pop-tops really work precisely (nor why they were invented).

I just obtained my local currency for this trip by sending Bitcoin to an ATM, and it was was actually pretty painless! I'm not sure whether it works out to be cheaper than my usual strategy of using my BofA card in a random local ATM, but it sure is more fun.

Yet another total UX fail. Why does anyone think this is okay?

I get frustrated pretty much every time I encounter a site that is "mobile-friendly" or even mobile-aware. It's especially frustrating that so many sites don't respond properly to desktop user-agent spoofing.

I was disappointed in both the quality and variety of the tuxedos, and the knowledgeability of the staff. I went to Arthur's Formal Wear instead and had a much better experience.
