New experiment: now you can follow me and the wiki on twitter. The idea is to use this channel for news and other things related to chembytes, hoping it will make it easy follow the wiki.

Yeah, today the new computer is arrived in the lab:

  • cpu i7 quad core with hyper-threading, 2.80GHz
  • 8gb ram
  • great video card (forgot the model though)
  • HD 150gb + 1TB
  • etc. etc.

First things done: formatted Windows 7 professional and installed the last Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. Then configuration and transfer data from the old pc to the new one.

Oh joy oh joy :D

Some picture of the nice event:


And, there is also the card reader, so I can share easily stuff between the desktop and the eeepc. yehi!

Introducing xmgrace

tags: plotting xmgrace


xmgrace is, like gnuplot, a nice piece of software to create scientific plots. As opposite to gnuplot, xmgrace has a graphical interface and can generate only 2D plots. To the other hands, it allows for quite sofisticate analysis, such as autocorrelation, fourier transformation, interpolations, non linear fitting, regression, convolution and so on.

The user guide is here.

Install xmgrace in linux is quite straightforward, since is included in the repositories of all the major linux distribution, as for gnuplot.

Soon I will write a page dedicated to xmgrace.
