    Re: VI for scientific report

    Don't forget about the vim-latexsuite.

    I can also attest to the fact that latex is an excellent tool for this sort of work. I haven't used office to write a paper / presentation / homework writeup...

    Poll: Re: Lab notebook software?

    I use latex + beamer as an electronic lab notebook, and to keep things from getting too long and drawn out I separate things into week by week segments. I can always simply have another latex...

    Re: Powerful Calculator?

    +1 for python shell with the aforementioned aliases. Or better yet, use ipython since it has introspection and other fun things that help you out when using some of the fancier math libraries. I use...

    Re: Math Expression Editor

    I agree with the general sentiment on Latex. There was one student in my quantum class who took notes with Kile, and at the end of the day had better (and more complete) notes than I did with pen +...

    Re: Energy Simulation Scheduler

    The lab I work at uses torque (clicky) to handle their batch jobs across multiple computers. I don't know if it is overkill for your purposes simply because my experience with it is entirely as an...

    Re: LaTeX with inline spellcheck?

    I know the vim + latex-suite can do that sort of spell check (see attached for image). I like it alot (started my tex life with kile, which is also pretty slick IMO).

    Re: Large amount of data

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what kind of analysis, etc. you are doing, but depending on your personal tastes and needs I can speak of 2 ways of getting out of simple ascii columns.

    One, which I'm listing...

    Re: sci-buntu

    Honestly, I would be happier if the focus was given to making sure that the latest stable packages of interest were in the repositories, rather than trying to maintain yet another sub-distro. With...

    Re: Physics question

    It would seem we have a dispute, which I believe to be caused by different interpretations of the question. In the interest of clarity, I attached the method by which I came to my conclusions. You'll...

    Re: Physics question

    Close. The mass probably won't actually affect it so much since it will appear on both sides of T = Ia and therefore cancel. The real trick is the moment of inertia's dependence on the radius of the...

    Re: Physics question

    For some reason I'm feeling a bit socratic, so maybe I'll just give some hints instead of the straight up answer.

    Think about what forces you have on the wheel and their direction. Obviously...

    Re: Kile vs. Texmaker

    Agree. Kile is neat and all, but I quickly hit the point where all the pretty buttons just got annoying and cluttery to me. The vim latex plugin is actually quite nice IMO. I can see why people use...

  17. Poll: Re: What editor do you use for LaTeX documents?

    Yes... just be sure to add whatever modifications you want to the correct .rc file :P . As far as I know, it functions completely the same, except perhaps you won't get the menu tools you do when you...

    Re: About the LHC at CERN

    My understanding (though I'll admit that I am not a high-energy guy) is that the answer to that depends on the mass of the Higgs, which isn't exactly known with any certainty needless to say. Also,...
