Some members of our research group are thinking that we need to study and improve our knowledge of computer science, as we sometimes feels lacks of basic knowledge. So we have been planning to held seminar to study algorithms in the upcoming summer vacation. Today we had the first offline meeting and chose which text to use. My opinion was to use lecture notes of Advanced Algorithms Course at MIT. But we decided to use D.Knuth's famous book “The Art of Computer Programming Volume 3: Sorting and Searching” (Japanese Edition). I was slightly unpleasant since I don't like Knuth :-P

λ. Happy SAAD!
I heard that today is System Administrator Appreciation Day, also known as Sysadmin Day or SAAD. See <URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/System_Administrator_Appreciation_Day> for details. But who knows this day?
I've known SAAD for a few years because it's introduced at /.
Thank you for commenting in English and letting me know that. BTW, it seems that many other jobs don't have such a day. Is sysadmin tougher than them so that it needs such a day?
