15:32 jberger chm, o/
15:33 chm hi joel
15:33 jberger well it sure has been exciting eh
15:33 jberger :-/
15:33 chm yes
15:34 chm I'm in the process up updating my PGP/PGPS from git to see how things work
15:34 chm No point in trying with out-of-date code
15:34 jberger in slightly other news, have you tried david's demo
15:35 chm yes, it looks very nice but that was where I had some of the lock-ups take place that couldn't try out until I had time not on my use PDL for work computer
15:35 jberger gotcha
15:36 chm Thanks for reminding me to put that on the list for today
15:37 chm I'm trying to put the PDL-2.006 release to bed asap since my PDL cycles are going to zero as far as release manager goes..l
15:37 chm Are you coming to the A
15:37 chm PS
15:37 chm meeting next week in
15:37 chm Baltimore
15:37 jberger unfortunately not, I'm defending my thesis at the end of April
15:37 chm I saw that David is coming.  Maybe we could get together for dinner or something
15:37 jberger I'm all in on that
15:37 chm Oh, right.
15:38 jberger that sounds great, wish I could be there
15:38 jberger my group actually doesn't usually go to APS anyway though
15:39 jberger between M&M and CLEO we have plenty of "big meeting" experiences
15:39 chm Ok, what is the focus for your research publications/presentations
15:39 jberger Ultrafast Electron Microscopy
15:39 chm What is M&M and CLEO?
15:39 jberger Microscopy and Microanalysis
15:40 jberger Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics
15:40 chm Thanks for the expansion.
15:40 chm :-)
15:40 jberger we are in ultrafast instrumentation
15:40 chm I'm actually pretty excited about PDL post-2.006, since a bunch of cool ideas have come up in the discussions this year to date
15:40 jberger fs/ps time resolution, spectroscopy and now imaging
15:41 jberger I am too
15:41 jberger I love the Moo(se)? idea
15:41 chm For instance, David's point about the KISS chaining actually lines up with my plan to go to a Moo engine for PDL-3.000
15:41 chm At least for the TriD and pdl shell
15:42 jberger I also think that leaning out the PP generation could see benefits in additional CPAN module contributions
15:42 chm leaning out?
15:42 jberger david wants to learn to grok the rules things
15:43 jberger and we both have thoughts about how to make it easier to write the documentation so that CPAN indexers see it
15:43 chm What does 'leaning out' mean?
15:44 jberger I guess I meant "making it simpler", by "lean" I kinda meant making it smaller, but that is really what I meant
15:44 jberger :-)
15:44 chm Ok, just didn't know the specific meaning from the sentence.
15:44 jberger I really mean, lowering the barrier to writing PP
15:45 jberger and having it play better with CPAN
15:45 chm That would be great.  It also lines up with my idea of using roles and method modifiers to instantiate GPU, parallel, other computing options
15:46 chm Kind of like a jit PP
15:48 chm Getting back to things here, o/
15:49 jberger I think having roles/modifiers as a tool in PDL sounds awesome
15:55 jberger I don't think david will mind, here is a chat we had the other day regarding your ::KISS interface:
15:55 jberger http://pastie.org/6573530
15:58 chm Nice, definitely worth pursuing going forward past PDL-2.006
15:58 jberger indeed
15:59 jberger ok I have other things too, I will check in every now and again
15:59 jberger o/
15:59 chm This may push buttons but it would be pretty cool to be supported by a refactored PDL::Graphics::Simple
15:59 jberger yeah
16:00 chm Off to lunch, nice chatting o/
16:00 jberger my concern for ::Simple (and I don't want to make it sound like its for solidarity with ::Prima or agains ::Gnuplot) is that the 'with' as a plot layer separator is really hard to implement
16:00 jberger enjoy
