Julia script to calculate length and azimuthal angles of a great circle joining two points on the Earth (ideally for seismology).
View finddelta.jl
#!/usr/bin/env julia
# A script used to find the length of the great circle joining two points on the
# Earth as well as the azimuth and back-azimuth of the great circle.
# USAGE: finddelta LAT1 LONG1 LAT2 LONG2
# OUTPUT: Absolute distance, angular distance, eq azimuth and back azimuth
# EXAMPLE (Great circle between the poles): finddelta -90 0 90 0

Created Apr 19, 2014
A program that performs a very basic frequency analysis on a string encrypted with a Caesar cipher.
View vici.go
// vici performs a very basic frequency analysis on a string of text encrypted with a Caesar cipher.
// It will output all possible keys and plaintexts for the ciphertext, with the most likely key/plaintext first and the least likely last
// Usage: vici [ciphertext]
// **NOTE** You'll need to run `go get` to build this program
// **NOTE 2** Since this outputs 26 lines of text to the console, you might want to redirect the output to a file.

A deployment script I use to push my Jekyll blog onto Amazon S3. It compiles sass files, generates the site, gzips HTML, CSS & JavaScript and then uploads the site to Amazon S3 using s3cmd.
#! /usr/local/bin/python3
""" Requirements: s3cmd, jekyll, gzip & sass.
Mk 2 of the script
To use this script, you'll need to edit your site's _config.yml file and add the following:
s3bucket: s3://bucket-name
Remember: Change the path_to_sass_file & sass_compile_path variables if you want to compile sass files. If you don't want to compile sass files, comment out the call to the compile_sass() function.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
