An introduction to Java Agent and bytecode manipulation - Tom's Quest A few months ago, I wrote a little shell script to colorize Maven's output (see this post). This is a good solution, but Jean-Christophe Gay has written a pure Java version to solve the same problem with interesting bits of Java technologies.

West Africa AGRIDAPE (Revue sur l'agriculture durable à faibles apports externes), is a Magazine about Sustainable Agriculture with Low External Inputs. This notion refers to all those technological and social choices available to farmers that are willing to improve their production with an eye for a better environmental management. The French language magazine's focus is on the optimal use of local resources and natural processes but also the handling of measurement and control inputs when needed. It tries to stimulate the capacity of individuals and communities to build their future on the base of their own skills, values, and cultures. We seek to combine local knowledge with scientific expertise in order to help individuals, institutions and policymakers in finding the solutions that better fit the needs of small farmers in West Africa. Language of the magazine: French

Reasons to believe More often than I can remember, I’ve been asked some form of the following question: “If you computer scientists can’t prove P=NP or P!=NP, then why aren’t we justified in believing whichever one we want? And why is the ‘consensus’ that P!=NP anything more than a shared prejudice — something you repeat to each other so your work won’t seem irrelevant?” It’s time to assume the mantle of Defender of the Faith. I’m going to give you ten arguments for believing P!
