I am (or was) a Physics / Computer Science major with interests in distributed and parallel computing, computational physics, and web application development.

I dabble in plenty of Physics related things from time to time, but I mostly spend my time programming in C++, C# and Mathematica. I have a rather obsessive interest in distributed computing and parallel computing in general.

My most recent interests are within web application development in the ASP.NET MVC3 framework and in high performance computing with visualization.

comment Can Mathematica propose an exact value based on an approximate one?
@Simon: Like I said it's very hacky :( There's a lot more I want to fix with this.

comment Asynchronous evaluation: Is it possible?
@Szabolcs: I thought it did what I needed, but after I really looked into it I realized it still had the blocking behavior that WaitNext and WaitAll have.

Interesting. I'll have to look into that. I don't mind using up a second kernel license.

comment Tuning ParallelMap when IO and computationally bound
In general. I'm trying all kinds of cases and it's turning out that neither makes a huge difference. I'm finding all the cases where Mathematica does fine using any of the methods.

comment Tuning ParallelMap when IO and computationally bound
It's turning out to be extremely difficult to find examples where you would prefer finest grained over coarsest grained..

comment What is the most effective way to setup a Notebook with transparent background but solid contents?
Very cool. Didn't know you can change the opacity.

comment Asynchronous evaluation: Is it possible?
I would think it would be output below the cell where it started evaluating. ParallelSubmit has this behavior when you call WaitNext or WaitAll.
