Why I Still Use Emacs « Occasionally sane

Why I Still Use Emacs « Occasionally sane: "anything: anything is similar to OS X’s QuickSilver utility; you activate it, start typing what you want and it’ll show you all the possible results, organized by categories. By default, it looks at the files in the current directory, and the opened buffers I believe, but you can configure it to find all sorts of things, such as Emacs commands, man pages, recently opened files, functions, etc."

KK... JK... OK : /: A Bayesian Approach To Kalman Filtering: "INTRODUCTION
Ripped straight from Wikipedia...
The Kalman filter is an algorithm, commonly used since the 1960s for improving vehicle navigation (among other applications, although aerospace is typical), that yields an optimized estimate of the system's state (e.g. position and velocity). The algorithm works recursively in real time on streams of noisy input observation data (typically, sensor measurements) and filters out errors using a least-squares curve-fit optimized with a mathematical prediction of the future state generated through a modeling of the system's physical characteristics.

We have trouble accepting criticism and extending empathy because we are so preoccupied with ourselves. "
