Sod's Law

One of the best things about my stay in Indonesia is the amount of pirated software available. Normally I am not dependent on physical sources of data, but here I am limited to 2GiB of bandwidth per month (in contrast I usually use over 5GiB of bandwidth per day at UBC). At the local stores I can get almost any program/movie/game I want for 10,000 rupiah (USD 1.10).

Inevitably, earlier this week all the piracy stores in town shut down simultaneously. I am assuming it is because of some sort of massive government piracy raid here in Medan. It was fun while it lasted!

Arlisy Version 0.3 Released

In this version of Arlisy the artificial neural network has been redesigned with a much greater potential for problem solving. There are now three layers of neurons in each network (input neurons, hidden neurons, and output neurons).

Arlisy Version 0.2 Released

In this version of Arlisy I implemented an evolutionary algorithm and created three new species (Mimix, Multiplier, and Rath). The current artificial neural network is not yet capable of solving any interesting problems.
