Yeah, some new live recording of Jef Neve & Myrddin De Cauter! Listen to it on http://audio.jerous.org/2016-jn/
For simulations I need to call functions in MATLAB and retrieve results from within a omnet++ simulation. There is documentation, however, it took me a while before I got it all working. So, I ended up with a small wrapper class that allows one to evaluate MATLAB code in a running MATLAB instance.
Because MATLAB has to start up the GUI every time the simulation starts (edit: I discovered it has a flag
-nojvm -nodisplay -nodesktop which speeds this up), it gets quite slow and annoying, and thus I also looked at writing a wrapper for octave, a language that is largely compatible with MATLAB.
Another advantage of using octave, instead of MATLAB is that octave is a shared library that runs in the same process, so one can pass around pointers.
By flipping a switch, the code will be either MATLAB or octave based.
The source and very simple, small examples can be found in source.tgz (5 KiB, modified on 27 January 2016, MD5 0b00489725ee2afbd929429f004c2355)

Yup, there exists a procedure for creating unicorns: "This invention relates to a method of growing unicorns in a manner that enhances the overall development of the animal." Check out patent US4429685
The Settle Up app is pretty useful; it lets you share bills quite easily with groups of people. It's pretty good, except for the fact it has no web interface, and thus useless for people without a smartphone (or tablet) at hand. I and a group of friends had to settle up a visit to Amsterdam, and my fingers itched to quickly jot a webpage, where you could just easily view and edit the data, and also have a set of transactions (not guaranteed to be the minimal set though).
edit 29/01/2016: I've moved the remainder of this post to the tab-out page.
Chick Corea and the Vigil were in de Roma. Not without me, so as usual: have a listen to it on http://audio.jerous.org/2015-cc/!
New recording! This time of a woman with such an awesome voice it makes me almost swoon everytime I hear her: Charlyn Marie "Chan" Marshall aka Cat Power
Also now, you can listen to it: MP3 recording (58 MiB) of the entire concert with corresponding cue file, or you can just stream it! The recording was edited (converting from stereo to mono, and normalizing the sound) using
--show-progress --norm=3 2015-10-26_Cat-Power.mp3 --channels 1 2015-10-26_Cat-Power-norm=3.mp3.
