I remember seeing recently an interesting webpage about the really unique template and specialized type based micro-multithreading library for C++. It would do things like notice when you were doing an array operation in which things were independent and handle half the array in a new thread, or have a specialized routine for handling adding all the array elements together using two threads.

But now I can't find it. It looked really intriguing.

Secondly, I made this post in advancedcpp about this C++ construct I want to use for handling callbacks to potentially disappearing objects. I made something that works, but I don't really like exactly how it works, and it would be nice to have something that worked better. So, if you like puzzles like that, please go over there and comment. :-)

Lastly, mostly unrelated to computers, I had a marvelous day of chatting with sebab and playing Go. :-)

Vaguely unrelated to computers

1. You should come down to LA for the 08 Cotsen tournament next month! Preregister and you get your money back and a free lunch.

2. I've been dusting off my grandiose and silly go ai project after quite a while of just not thinking about it. Do you know anything about game theory?

  1. I would love to. Except I have a very tiny amount of money at this point. :-(
  2. No. :-( That's one aspect of computer science that I know very little about. *sigh* But, that would be a fun project to help on.

Do you play Go very much yourself? I am a poor Go player by any standard, but it is fun to play. I like it a lot more than chess.

I don't think that's what I was thinking of, but I think it fits the bill anyway. The one I'm thinking of looked less top-heavy and commercial.
