My company, Biomantica, is working on an SBIR grant application and we would like to be able to include statements from people who would be willing to do Racket contract work for us contingent on our getting the grant. What we really need is just to show that we have people we can call on who

[racket-users] Sorting a list-box%

2018-03-05 Thread James Platt
I'm working on something which is leading to a cascade of questions so I suppose that I should just start by explaining what I am trying to do. I have written some code which takes the results of an SQL query and displays it as a table in a GUI using list-box%. This works and I am now writing

I'm just now getting back to this after returning from Racketcon. I ran `raco setup` as the user and again as root and it did not solve the problem. So then I tried `raco setup -c` but this gave permission errors (unlike the previous commands). so I ran `sudo raco setup -c' and then `sudo

I wonder if this has anything to do with mitigation for Spectre, Meltdown or the other speculative execution vulnerabilities that have been identified recently. I understand that some or all of the patches affect the performance of multi-CPU processing in general. James -- You received

[racket-users] Jewel is Jewelbox?

2018-09-28 Thread James Platt
In the PLT Games included with Racket 7, there is a game called Jewel. It's very much like a game from a while back that was called Jewelbox. This was something like 20 years ago and I remember it mainly because I still have the little drawstring bag which the disk came in. It was
