Sequence Looking For New Home

Submitted by jgoerzen on Wed, 07/18/2007 - 5:36am.

Hi everyone,

I've been hosting sequence.complete.org on my own server for awhile, but have found that I haven't had time to maintain it lately. I'm looking for someone else that might be willing/able to host and maintain it.

It's using Drupal on MySQL, though a fairly old version of Drupal at the moment.

One result of my lack of time is that there has been a problem with spam on the Sequence. I've had to disable new user account requests due to the hundreds of emails to bogus addresses this is generating (and a few to valid addresses that spammers use).

If you want an account, or would be interested in taking over the site, please send a note to me... jgoerzen on complete ,dot, org.

Glasgow Haskell Compiler gains SMP support

Submitted by shapr on Tue, 05/10/2005 - 1:06am.

In a recent irc discussion with one of the developers of the Glorious Glasgow Haskell Compiler, it was heard that the development version of GHC can now use multiple processors for the same program.

Submitted by jgoerzen on Fri, 04/15/2005 - 6:21pm.

It's that time of year again: the call for contributions to the Haskell Communities and Activities Report has been posted. If you develop any Haskell software, participate in the Haskell community, etc., you ought to submit something for the report.

First Issue of The Monad.Reader Posted

Submitted by jgoerzen on Tue, 03/01/2005 - 6:10pm.

The first issue of the online Haskell e-zine, The Monad.Reader, has been posted.

Looks like good work to me. I think this will be a wonderful thing for the Haskell community.

K. Fritz Ruehr's Evolution of a Haskell Programmer is a humorous look at the mental development of the Haskell programmer.

LicensedPreludeExts - Prelude Extensions from the community.

Submitted by shapr on Thu, 02/24/2005 - 7:28am.

The LicensedPreludeExts on the Haskell Wiki started with Koen Claessan's permutations function being requested too many times on the #haskell irc channel. I wondered what other bits of code people were missing from the Prelude and asked for contributions.

Haskell interesting to Perl6 developers

Submitted by jgoerzen on Thu, 02/24/2005 - 6:57am.

Autrijus Tang seems to have caused some interest in the Perl community due to his rapid development of a working Perl6 compiler/interpreter written in Haskell. Quite a few Perl6 hackers have been hanging out in #haskell of late.

Pugs, at present, works by compiling the input to an AST and then interpreting (evaluating) that AST. Autrijus expects this to be expanded to a true compiler down the road, with possible outputs being Perl 6, Haskell code (which could lead to a Perl-to-C compiler), and Parrot.
