Chicago Edge U17 boys and girls last evening right after the girls lost their quarterfinal whereas the boys went further today and won their semifinal and final, both in overtime and against other Chicago-area teams, making them champs at the Las Vegas Mayor's Cup.  

For comparison, last year's post with only the then U16 girls: https://plus.google.com/109246313993679724191/posts/CKado3HT9fE

Way to go, Dirk! The support is appreciated. Are there a lot of people who don't do iTunes?

My love affair with +Docker  continues: Out of a frustrating debugging / replication exercise grew a shiny new container for UBSAN testing.

Does anybody have access to a big-endian machine with R and Python?  

I need to debug an issue with RcppCNPy.   Everything I have access to is little-endian encoded ....

Finally got around to updating my "here is a summary of code I have hacked on, recently or otherwise" web page.  This is meant to be useful as a brief dispatching page--no more, no less.

Any comments, corrections, hints, ... welcome.

In between soccer games in Las Vegas, +Anna Eddelbuettel​ and I detoured to Lake Mead. So here is your Valentine's Day 'Father and Daughter standing in a lake' selfie.

Rcpp 0.11.4 is out -- and we forgot to announce here when it came out a few days ago. 

Best to keep an eye on +Dirk Eddelbuettel 's blog .. ;-)

I had that cartoon on my door when I worked at UCLA stats consulting. I thought it was hilarious but I got the sense clients were less impressed.

Started the year with the New Year's 5k I ran four times before, but last in 2007 when I was almost a minute/mile faster. Oh those were the days.

But nice to be out on a sunny but crisp and bone-chilling cold morning, and to have +Anna Eddelbuettel​ and two running group pals tag along.

There is an old chart I am overdue updating because it is frustrating. :-/   See eg the second chart here at http://dirk.eddelbuettel.com/blog/2009/10/11#chicago_marathon_2009 -- but note that is is five years old. I long lost the downward slope and now live in a V-shaped world.  The second one has min/mile (as common here) on the left and min/km from the saner metric world on the right.

So I wrote a rant this morning (see below for link) and tweeted about it.  

That must have hit a nerve: 40 retweets and 35 favourites as of right now, and well over 700 hits on the embedded goo.gl URL (which Twitter obfuscates once more).  Maybe I should rant more often?
