GNU Guile Scheme Gets a Register VM and CPS-Based IL

freefal67 Scheme-Great way to learn function programming (42 comments)

Never done anything substantial in Scheme, but was probably my favorite language to learn in college, in the context of a function programming course. I did not know there as a GNU interpreter. Will have to check it out. Speaking of functional languages, someone told me that the XKCD website is programmed entirely in Haskell. True?

FCC Smooths the Path For Airlines' In-Flight Internet

freefal67 Pricing (93 comments)

Think it is likely to remain too pricey for now. Too many price-insensitive business travelers willing to pay *any* price with the corporate credit card. Maybe the airlines can make it up on volume at a lower price point or figure out how to tier it properly, but seems like a good deal they have going now.

freefal67 Re:Enough with the Drupal Book Reviews (21 comments)

Amen to that. This is getting ridiculous. Only a matter of time before we have more Drupal book reviews than Drupal users.

Seriously though. What is the deal with this? How many people actually use this thing that I've still never heard of outside of Slashdot?

freefal67 Google Search of WSJ Articles (161 comments)

I had previously noticed that this works for all WSJ articles. Does anyone know why? Is Google paying the WSJ for content?

Effective Use of Technology In the Classroom?

freefal67 Re:Sounds like a good starting point. (295 comments)

I think students tend to take far less away from having slides done out ahead of time. Seeing each step prevents students from simply reading ahead, getting a cursory understanding and then fading out.
Seeing a teacher work out each step on the blackboard has always seemed far more engaging and instructive to me.
