My posts can be about operating systems, mobile computing, desktop software, development software, and computer hardware and may not be limited to Microsoft products. I do know plenty about OpenBSD (or other *BSD systems), GNU/Linux, and Mac OS X. When I say "plenty," I mean that I regularly operate a personal file server with pf enabled and I am looking to deploy a BIND solution on my LAN.

I know C/C++, Objective-C, Java, VC++,VB, VC#, .NET, some LISP, PERL and scripting (eg. Batch files, BASH). For Web related, I understand HTML, CSS and Javascript.

Please note: Postings on this blog are the personal opinions of the author and do not reflect or represent the views of any specific companies, as either mentioned or inferred.

Here’s how to compute an approximation of Pi using Common LISP:

(defun pi (upper)
  "This is the main funtion to compute PI"
  (setf *pi* 0)
  (setf *odd* 1)
  (loop
   for i from 0 to upper
   do
   (setf *pi* (+ *pi* (/ (* 4.0 (expt -1 i)) *odd*)))
   (setf *odd* (+ *odd* 2)))
  (format t "Approximation of pi: ~f~%" *pi*)
  (format t "Odd = ~d~%" *odd*))
