A quick shell script that will automatically update a Linux HOSTS file to block ads and malicious domains.
#!/usr/bin/env sh
# Filename:
# Author: George Lesica <>
# Description: Replaces the HOSTS file with a customized version that blocks
# domains that serve ads and malicious software, creating a backup of the old
# file.

Switch Go (swgo): A very simple and intensely opinionated Go version manager
View swgo.bash
# Switch Go (swgo)
# A very simple and intensely opinionated Go version manager.
# Author: George Lesica <>
# To use, create a file called ".swgo" in any project directory.
# Inside of this file, set two variables: GOROOT_ and GOPATH_
# to the values you want assigned to GOROOT and GOPATH,
# respectively. Then, while in that directory, just run "swgo"
# and your GOROOT, GOPATH, and PATH will be updated accordingly.

Contouring algorithm in Julia.
View contour.jl
# contour(A, v)
# Implements the Marching Squares contouring algorithm (see:
# for details). The
# matrix `A` is an m x n scalar field and the scalar `v` is the
# value to be contoured. The return value is an (m-1) x (n-1) matrix
# of contour line type indices (see the Wikipedia article).
# TODO: Implement in parallel
function contour(A, v)

Created Feb 24, 2013
A really simple sentiment analysis function implemented in R that illustrates some of the nifty features of the R language.
View sentiment.r
sentiment <- function(str, words, weights=NULL) {
if (is.null(weights)) {
weights <- rep(1, length(words))
if (length(words) != length(weights)) {
stop('Length of words and weights not equal')
str.wts <- rep(0, length(str))
You can’t perform that action at this time.
