clandestine activity

Lang and I spent every waking minute of the weekend working on our quasi-secret paper about Comet Holmes that has an end-of-month deadline. Of course I say quasi-secret because absolutely everything we do is exposed on the web at all times in our SVN repository, and I have probably posted about it ten times previously! We got Foreman-Mackey's version of Goodman and Weare's affine-invariant ensemble sampler working (the same sampler Hou is using, but a new implementation), we figured out a new kind of likelihood function for image pointings (a generative model of astrophotographers if you will), we experimented with multiprocessor stuff, and we made figures. My kind of weekend!

  1. Google Chrome complained about the word "pointings" but was fine with "astrophotographers".
