Analyzing WordPress Analytics Data in R

So a few days ago I talked about my recent obsession with data and how I started tabulating, charting, and analyzing SEO and similar data in Microsoft Works. Now I will talk about the subsequent data analyses that I did using the R programming language. Let's get to it... What is R? I would describe … Continue reading Analyzing WordPress Analytics Data in R

Unix vs. Windows: How to Check and Convert Between the Two File Formats

In this article I will explain the difference between the Unix file format used by Linux and MacOS and the DOS format used by Windows, and I will also show you how to check … Continue reading Unix vs. Windows: How to Check and Convert Between the Two File Formats

Adding Rational Types to the C Programming Language

One of the main problems with the C programming language as opposed to something like Python is that it doesn't provide any of the convenient amenities that more high-level languages provide in terms of abstract data types. Basically, you have to implement everything yourself. C provides integer types and floating point types, and that's basically … Continue reading Adding Rational Types to the C Programming Language

Corona-Chan Project, Part 5: Final Model-Fitting Program

The linear relationship indicated by the graph shown in Part 4 of this series has shed light on something I overlooked when I was doing that part of the research. Specifically, it indicates that we can actually reduce the system of equations being graphed to a system of two linear equations in two variables. For … Continue reading Corona-Chan Project, Part 5: Final Model-Fitting Program

Corona-Chan Project, Part 4: Fitting the Model to the Data

So the last business week was pretty fucking insane. We had a three-day bull run in the stock market due to the Coronavirus bill being authored by Congress, and then for some reason the stock market crashed again after the bill passed. It's all over the place, and probably will continue to be that way … Continue reading Corona-Chan Project, Part 4: Fitting the Model to the Data

Corona-Chan Project, Part 3: Analyzing the Prediction Function

This article will be building on my research in the previous two articles on the Corona-Chan Project, so if you haven't read Parts 1 and 2, you might want to go back and do that: Project for Quarantine Period: Tracking the Coronavirus Outbreak Using Calculus and C Corona-Chan Project Update: Smoothing the Prediction Function First … Continue reading Corona-Chan Project, Part 3: Analyzing the Prediction Function

Corona-Chan Project Update: Smoothing the Prediction Function

In the previous article I talked about how I'm using sophisticated data analysis techniques to predict when the stock market will hit rock bottom due to the Coronavirus recession, pointing to the optimal time to invest in cheap stocks that are guaranteed to go up. In that article I shared a C program I wrote … Continue reading Corona-Chan Project Update: Smoothing the Prediction Function

Project for Quarantine Period: Tracking the Coronavirus Outbreak Using Calculus and C Programming

So due to the mainstream media overhyping the Coronavirus epidemic and treating it like the end of the world so they can get better ratings and make a ton of money by generating mass panic, virtually every business and facility across my country has shut down at least for the next few weeks (I say … Continue reading Project for Quarantine Period: Tracking the Coronavirus Outbreak Using Calculus and C Programming

Forensics Tool to Detect Encrypted Files

Well shit, looks like I haven't posted in about two weeks. I really didn't mean to do that. This absence was entirely unplanned and served no real purpose. But here I am again, and I'll try to update on a semi-daily basis for the forseeable future. Oh, and it looks like I'm getting regular hits … Continue reading Forensics Tool to Detect Encrypted Files

Writing an Emulator for the MIX Architecture

I've been reading a lot of TAOCP lately (that's The Art of Computer Programming by Donald Knuth for you plebes out there 😛 ). This classic book series consists mainly of designing a lot of algorithms in machine language. The machine language used is that of the fictional MIX architecture, which Knuth created specifically for … Continue reading Writing an Emulator for the MIX Architecture
