These are my links for June 3rd through June 26th:
- The Origin of the word Daemon – "Our use of the word daemon was inspired by the Maxwell's daemon of physics and thermodynamics. (My background is Physics.) Maxwell's daemon was an imaginary agent which helped sort molecules of different speeds and worked tirelessly in the background. We fancifully began to use the word daemon to describe background processes which worked tirelessly to perform system chores."
- Intel® SPMD Program Compiler – An open source compiler built on top of LLVM for a C-like language for "single program, multiple data" (SPMD) programs.
- Main Page – eLinux.org – Packed full of (vendor neutral) information about the development and use of Linux in embedded systems.
- New Algorithm Impressively Depixelates Pixel Art | Geekosystem – Genuinely impressive!
- Is Parallel Programming Hard, And, If So, What Can You Do About It? – Free and open source book about parallel programming from someone who knows, Paul E. McKenney – Linux Realtime and RCU hacker.
