The redesign of my website
9/7/2018I put up my original website a little over 3 years ago. I had used it as an exercise to learn more about linux server administration, and about the Apache HTTP Server (you can read more about my goals for that original project in my old). Fast forward a couple of years, and my new obsession is cloud native technologies. I decided it was time for a facelift for my old website, and a new backend architecture.....
Compiling R with Intel's ICC and MKL
6/1/2015I can count on one hand the number of non-free pieces of software I use regularly, but there are some that are just too good for me to resist. For a while now, I've been predominantly using Intel's ICC compiler for compiling C programs, and their MKL for BLAS and LAPACK functions. Intel makes these resources free for students (they also have discounted academic pricing for non-students), and I recommend that, if you haven't already, you look into trying them. Since I spend most of my time in R, I compile new versions of R from source using ICC and MKL, but it took me a little time to get it working, so I thought I'd share how I succeeded on my personal computer.....
