I'm a hybrid programmer / web designer / psychology researcher. I'm currently doing internet-based psychological interventions with a University of California health research lab, trying to help folks learn skills for creating positive emotions and coping with stress effectively.

I also help non-technologically-inclined researchers and administrators manage and collate large datasets. Munging unruly text files may not be glamorous, but you'd be surprised how often it's what gets the science done.

comment Windows 8 Start Screen ribbon mysteriously replaced by context menu, how to reverse?
It's on a desktop, not a touch device. Sounds like I must have gotten a stealthy update shortly after the install. Thanks for all the information. I'll update my question with the proper nomenclature, and if you want to post this as an answer I can accept it.

comment What does the routing table entry 129.0&0x8500 mean?
It's recurred many times over restarts, but I just restarted now and it disappeared. I'm monitoring the routing table at regular intervals and will see if I can figure out when it reappears.

Lingon has been updated! Rejoice! Especially good because all of the programs linked in this post are discontinued, dead links, or more than 3 years out of date.

comment 403 Forbidden Error on Mac OS X Localhost
For the record: Adding +x doesn't give read or write permission to anything, it just allows the user to navigate down to a directory where they do have read access (in this case, the Sites directory).

Are you talking about evaluating mathematical expressions (like Mathematica does), or about entering them (like LaTeX or MathML)?

comment Is there a way to automatically disconnect a notebook from the eletrical power-supply?
Check out the table of allowable codes for SetPowerState. It's used to put the computer to sleep, shut it off, or change the power consumption settings, not to change its power source.

comment How do I transpose data in columns to rows?
When you put multiple columns side-by-side, you've created rows. Depending on how the data in the single column are laid out, you might have to transpose after breaking into multiple columns.
