Calculus for Beginners

"Calculus Know-It-ALL: Beginner to Advanced, and Everything in Between" by Stan Gibilisco.

A good calculus book for beginners and advanced readers. The calculus concepts are explained nicely. Not too technical, but suite me very well.

This book is available at Amazon.


Running MS Paint in Ubuntu

Drawing in Linux is a pain to (most*) newbie users .

Sometimes, we just want to draw a simple circle in the picture and GIMP is found to be too complicated to be used.

If you are fine to be ms-slave, perhaps we can just run mspaint in Linux (Ubuntu 9.10) as well.

Running mspaint in Ubuntu 9.10 is not hard. All you need is:

  1. mspaint.exe (just google to get it)
  2. mfc42u.dll (just google to get it)
  3. and, wine (download-able with apt-get).

I have tested this with Ubuntu 9.10  and it can edit/save BMP images with no issue.
