Another light bulb joke:
Question: How many certified Scrum masters does it take to change a light bulb?
Answer: An infinite number who would wait for the light bulb to do it itself
through the principles of self-organization and emergence.
I think I have heard this one many times before. Seems that there are many variations on this joke.
What did I do last week?
- More NumPy Weather posts. I did a retrospective of 11-20 yesterday. This week I wrote Modeling Temperature with the SciPy leastsq function, Day of Year Temperature Fit Take 2 and Moving Average Temperature Model with Lag 1
- Wrote notes for Coursera Machine Learning Week 5
- Reviewed “Cryptonomicon“
What am I going to do next?
- More weather predicting models. And I want to have a look at outliers and try to use more robust statistics.
- I am not sure what the schedule is for the Coursera Machine learning course, but if there are more lectures next week, I am going to write about them again.
- A review of another book in the Ender’s Game universe.
First, there was some problem in the data center again. But the monitoring system caught it and someone was already on the case, before I noticed it. CloudFlare showed me a cached snapshot, but it wasn’t up to date it seems. It’s just one of those things, right? That goes wrong.
Second, Malocchio, the evil spirit trapped in the body of a dirty alcoholic. If it wasn’t for the recession, he would have been safely locked in a room with soft walls and would be wearing a fashionable straightjacket. But care by nice people in white coats and sicko analysis is expensive. Cheap solutions, it is then. Protective talismans. No cure, no pay exorcism.
