Monday Blues Cure

Whoops, bit late today! Forgot it - silly me. Anyway here's the tune from the TV series the Avengers - don't really remember it (to young) but love the theme tune anyway. Enjoy.

Cool! Note: fairly easy and straightforward to find on Youtube.

Visualisation of Software Projects

Now heres an interesting idea. Take the commits to the project, either for files or modules etc and visualise the process of the commits from developers and watch code develop as developers commit. Michael Ogawa at UC Davis has done with with CodeSwarm.

He has created a number of videos for various projects, including Eclipse, Python, PostgreSQL and Apache. Interesting to try and interpret what is exactly happening with code using the visualisation.

CodeSwarm. is an open source project, and you can download it from Google Code and use it. Perhaps I'll try one day!

Monday Blues Cure

Now here's an interesting project - The Burning Bush. Saw them on the early music show, they play music of the Jews who were expelled from Spain 500 years ago, and there is an interesting mix of influences and styles in the music they play. Couldn't find any videos on youtube (music IR resource failure), but theres some snippets of their music available on their web site (all real media clips):

Windows media clips are also available on their website. Enjoy.

Great song from the Cohen Brothers film 'Oh Brother where art thou', which is a good example of Bluegrass music. From the 'Soggy Bottom Boys' that is:

Heres a plus from the film:

Amazing harmonies!
