<OrangeShark>amz3: here is another
<amz3>OrangeShark: tx a lot!
<amz3>I am conding since three days and could not compile yet
<amz3>or consing*
<catonano>amz3: I though of so many cond forms with so many condition clauses ;-)
<OrangeShark>amz3: no problem
<amz3>almost... I am right coding a match, a dozen of clauses
<amz3>I think it will have 24 clauses or something
<amz3>this sound scary
<amz3>but I don't know how to do otheriwse
<amz3>they are 15 clauses
<amz3>much room for bugs
<OrangeShark>For people interested in AI, Peter Norvig got back the copyright of his AI programming book in Common Lisp.
<amz3>it's time to compie...
<amz3>meh, the MOCHA challenge requires to write some adapter in Java to be able to run the tests
<OrangeShark>amz3: what is the MOCHA challenge?
<amz3>it's a competition to compare triple stores
<amz3>... and they extended the deadline to 30th March which means I have full month to implement the sparql query engine
<amz3>which is on its way
<amz3>OrangeShark: ^
<amz3>and since I am left without job, I will work full time on this
<OrangeShark>amz3: oh good luck :)
<amz3>tx :)
<amz3>actually the code must be finished the 7th may
<amz3>30th march is only the 5 page paper submission deadline
<amz3>that's very great news
<dieggsy>what's the easiest way to copy an entire directory recursively?
<dieggsy>short of (system* "cp ...") i suppose
<spk121>dieggsy: probably some application of 'ftw'
<dieggsy>ah, ok. seems i was on the right track i guess
<amz3>how can I create benchmark that are portable to different machines?
<amz3>Can I compute some value, to benchmark the machine and then use that value to compute the score
<amz3>making it possible to compare benchmarks done on different machine or even use that in the tests to be able to say whatever the machine the tests are running, that some patch is an improvement?
