Nice. I like it. I just replied to you too. I couldn't see any error messages when I ran a modified example with errors.

Why does this lead to math error?

\frac{\partial y}{\partial t} - \frac{{\partial}^2 y}{\partial x^2}

I think in most cases supercomputers are in fact "flexible arrays of less powerful nodes". It's just that you need to change the architecture as you scale up the number nodes and type of nodes. Basically, you need fast data transfer and memory sharing between these nodes if you want to do anything but the most embarrassingly parallel problems.

How do you put in diacritics (tashkil)? Can you use a regular English keyboard and do phonetic transliteration?

-----


That is possible under Mac if you use the "Arabic QWERTY" keyboard. See this link for instructions http://katibapp.com/help/arabic-on-mac/#learnersofarabicwill...

Additionally, you can use the "Keyboard Viewer" when Arabic is selected as a keyboard layout and hold shift. This will show you which keys render diacritics.

Not all engineers live in SF and make more money than they know what to do with. What are the kind of services that most engineers and coders are paying through the nose? Attorneys, financial services, therapists, etc.

Why not have more schools training these professions?

-----


There are already too many schools training attorneys -- so many, in fact, that getting a law degree does not at all guarantee a decent job as a lawyer.

Salaries at top law firms remain very strong, but salaries at most other firms are much lower than what one would expect due to the vast number of graduates.

-----


Have you seen the cost of living in SF? and Lawyers and Doctor are pre entry closed shops and make far more than the average Engineer.

-----


I think the OP's point stands. Society and the law isn't trying to understand and reduce the deaths of so many guys.

I couldn't click on the Save item in the File menu.

It's a demo...

Sometimes I want to use XQuery in the web console for pages that don't use XQuery. Does anybody know how to dynamically include XQuery on loaded pages to use with the web console?

-----


Well, I know you can inject jQuery into any web page using the “jQuerify” button in FireQuery (http://firequery.binaryage.com/). But I’ve never even heard of XQuery before now. According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XQuery, it seems to be a standard language, rather than a JavaScript library. What library do you use? http://www.xqib.org/ ?

-----


You can use $x('//some/xpath') for testing XPath's which can be very useful, but not sure about XQuery, never even heard about it being used before.

One problem with inflation is that wealthy people and corporations own a lot more assets like real estate, factories, patents, brand names, mining rights etc. while common people put their savings in fiat-denominated bank accounts and sometimes questionable debt instruments through their pension funds. So inflation is going to take a toll on a lot of middle class savings and old age survival funds for regular people.

I just checked out the website. So it doesn't have any jobs in programming/development/engineering?
