Also trying to verify, but the error "Connection to Redis failed after 1 failures." doesn't sound so inspiring.

We are devastated to share that our dear teammate Joe Philley passed away yesterday.  Joe was the backbone of the Ingress community and a friend to all.  Through his work he connected with thousands of Ingress Agents from all walks of life and brought smiles to many faces.  

We’ve been in touch with Joe’s family and we’ll share additional details on memorial services as we receive them. Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to Joe's family.  We will miss you, Agent Delta102.

#RIPJoe

+Norman Ramsey Could the SIGPLAN LaTeX class live on Github? We could then share, say, double-blinding setup in a fork (re: https://www.facebook.com/henglein/posts/1086705224679874?comment_id=1087473867936343&offset=50&total_comments=110&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R9%22%7D). We'd have had license text one year ago.

I didn't necessarily expect SIGPLAN accepting pull requests, and IIUC the CC license would allow me to put the style file on GitHub.
But it'd be ignored; if SIGPLAN puts up (and link to) to a master fork, GitHub will let me browse forks and pick interesting add-ons.

I guess a public bug tracker would also be nice, but I see this'd be asking too much.

Communications between English and Germans. I wonder where I would fit, and where the average Italians would.

Not terribly serious ;-) That's about what I do.

For some reason though the "and you?" feels a bit insincere, more so than the first "how do you do?".

Question is: what do you do if you actually want to know how somebody is? Ask them three times? Kinda silly... ^.^'

Are you German and you need instructions to ring the bell? Fear not! In Tübingen, you will be provided with answers to ALL your questions!

German humor (which does exist, despite rumors to the contrary) can be quite subtle :)

PLEASE SHARE WIDELY TO THOSE IT MAY CONCERN

would anyone be willing to participate in an experimental study where you would treat your mufg for, say, four weeks according to a preset plan imposed on you (e.g. 50 L8 resonators in one week, 30 jarvis in the next and so on),  report the current number of items every, say, 12 hours on a simple online form, and otherwise not touch the mufg? it would be quite restrictive - essentially you give the power how your capsule is used over to a third party and execute their wishes to the letter - and you could not really use the capsule at your own discrection and fluctuating ideas. but a study of this sort could give some robust and reliable numbers to get a reliable and initial estimates to answer questions like:
* do different capsules have different interest rates and if so, which?
* do different capsules have different interest intervals, and if so, which?
* do items of different rarity multiply differently?
* is there a fixed or rather variable interest rate?
* does it matter if the capsule contains mixed items or is it better to only load one type of item?
* does it impede replication if i look into the capsule often or does it not matter?
also such an experimental study may serve as a precedent for future studies about ingress items (including subsequent studies on the mufg that can answer additional questions and test very specific hypotheses) and make it easier in the future to hack item regularities.

i have thought about setting up something like this, but have so far hesitated, because i didn't know whether it is worth the effort if not many people would agree to such a capsule regimen. i however still believe it would be useful. one main obstacle to data analysis of mufg events so far is that, people display a huge variation in what they put in, for how long they let it sit, etc... the analysis of data like this, however requires huge numbers of observations, very, very precise and reliable data and, most importantly, certain distributions of different capsule use parameters. but an experimental study, where some things are tightly controlled and planned out, may give quality answers with a smaller sample of mufg capsule behavior observations. so: how many people would be up for a study of this kind? please answer the poll, and indicate if you would be in general willing to participate in such a study. and leave your comments in the ... wel...er... comments section.

And that's how software is contracted — an insightful analysis.

WHO OWNS YOUR RESEARCH?

What should be the role of associations like the ACM? Are they publishers who market science? Or should they strive to make research results available to all free of charge? Scientific publishing is about to undergo radical changes.  Take this poll:  http://goo.gl/vlCtn2   Make your voice heard!
WHO OWNS YOUR RESEARCH? This survey, sponsored by SIGPLAN, is it intended to shed light on the position of the scientific community with respect to open access and the publishing of scientific results in CS. [go to the survey]. Open access (OA) refers to unrestricted access to scientific works ...

Tom Ball, Ras Bodik, +Greg Morrisett, and I are organizing a new kind of programming languages conference. We already have several excellent conferences, but they are focused on incremental bits of novelty. We want to create a new kind of venue that complements these: to present and discuss big-picture questions and long-running programs; to view progress along the long arc of a research effort. The conference is May 3-6, 2015 in lovely Asilomar (on the Pacific Coast), CA, USA.

If this sounds interesting, please: don't just +1 it, reshare it. Why? To keep costs down and retain ownership of the conference with the community, we are independent, not affiliated with any organizations. That means you are the only PR channel we have. So please do us a favor. Thanks.

On ACM's policy on Open Access, and why we are still part of ACM.
 
Follow-up to the open letter from SIGPLAN to ACM candidates regarding the ACM DL. Disappointingly, they didn't bother to even differentiate themselves from each other. Thanks to +Philip Wadler, +Derek Dreyer, and others.
The SIGPLAN EC has written to the candidates for the up-and-coming ACM council elections. This page contains a copy of the letter sent, and the response from the candidates. Dear [Candidate],. I write to you on behalf of the executive committee of ACM SIGPLAN. We are sending the questions to all ...

Servizio meraviglioso: avevo la batteria scarica il sabato di Pasqua, m'è venuto a far partire la macchina per soli 10€ ed è stato gentilissimo. Abbiamo scoperto che una gomma era a terra, e me l'ha pure cambiata! Senza di lui sarei rimasto bloccato per le feste.

Siamo stati qua stasera, e abbiamo mangiato tavola calda pessima, e ricevuto un servizio scadente.

All the food was very good, the octopus was not hard to chew as often happens, my salmon was extremely juicy—its fat was melted up to the right point. The waiters were quite friendly, although since we were just two we were seated at the bar and not at a table. Would definitely come back here.
