mobihf v0.4

mobihf v0.4 is released and available for download from the usual place:

This version integrates mobihf and mobimol into a single app now bundled as a single SIS file (only for s60 second edition). All this was again done on Linux.
Due to time constraints some of the promised features (like parallel 2e integrals) are still missing and I will take some fare amount of time put in these things in, till then enjoy this version.

Some screen shots:

John W. Backus, the creator of FORTRAN is no more

John W. Backus, who is considered to be the creating members of the first ever high level programming language has passed away at 82.

Apart from the more well known contribution to developing Fortran, he has also been a major contributer to a widely used notation for describing the structure of programming languages called as Backus-Naur form (also known as Panini-Backus form; for the closeness with the way Sanskrit language grammer is defined).

New York times has an Obituary for him.

Typical crime scene: Mice ate Mouse! Only was too late to catch the mice red handed!

On some +ve note: reflections
