I program from when I was 13. In order of appearence: Basic, Pascal, C, C++, Visual C++, Microsoft Visual C++, Python. I now mostly program Python. I find it better than any language I have ever programmed. From an academic pov, I come with a degree in Math, and work in the academic making mathematical models of biological system. Mostly in the area of Artificial Chemistries, Artificial Life and Systems Biology. I am glad to be here. I also have a blog ( blog.pietrosperoni.it ), where I occasionally discuss related topics. A series of posts on how to use tags became quite famous in its time.

thanks. Installed with brew, and works like a chasm. I also learned about a really important tool. :-)

Their website is really badly done. I don't think they invest any time in it. So the only way to look through those pictures is offline.

comment How to transform html ebooks into pdf ebooks for mac osx
Hello, I installed CUPS-PDF. It seem to work fine when I print from Chrome. Or in general from a browser. I also set up an automator application, which works fine when I send to it a .pdf file (ok I know from pdf to pdf is trivial...). But when I send an html file to it, it does produce a pdf file, but the result file is empty. Is there any way in which I can tell him he should use a browser to open the files before printing them. By the way, this is the first time I use automator. Thanks, Pietro
