During the course of my PhD, and undergraduate degree, I’ve amassed quite a lot of MATLAB code, and knowledge. This page will be the where I try to share some of that knowledge and code. Documents: Writing MEX Files for Image Processing Code on GitHub Scattered Image Toolkit: A work in progress toolkit to provide Octave with functions for the analysis and interpolation of 2-D scattered data (scattered images).

Finally, after a nine-month wait, preceded by a year long slog, my paper has made it into print! I am, of course, very pleased :) Uploaded with plasq’s Skitch!

I’ve Moved to Mephisto! After a nasty database accident, caused by too little coffee, and too much stupidity, I’ve decided to transition my site to mephisto. Entirely. I’ve copied all of my blog posts, turned off typo, and removed radiant. This means that pretty much all of my URIs have changed, and my blog subdomain has been retired. I’m hoping that this ultra-modern, highly slick beast will help me keep my site running smoothly, without breaking everything all the time!

Following on from ones zeros majors and minors and Panasonic Youth, I humbly present my top 10 zsh commands: matt@pyxis ~ $ history 0 | awk '{a[$2]++}END{for(i in a){print a[i] " " i}}' | \ sort -rn | head 2151 l 1376 cd 631 git 463 echo 343 open 341 mate 279 sudo 258 gnuplot 243 ll 241 rm Interestingly, it’s quite different on my work linux box:

On of the things that makes gnuplot so powerful is its dazzling array of options. With this great number of options comes a heavy reliance on the manual, and this has meant that until recently, when I was scripting graphs for my thesis I had to have TextMate and a terminal running gnuplot fired up, and keep on switching between them when I needed to get some help. That’s why I decided to add support for gnuplot’s built-in help into the Gnuplot bundle.
