Just a quick note to myself really about how to get Latex working the way I want on Ubuntu 11.04 (Texmaker GUI, and some fixes for some errors I was getting). The error that was most troublesome was 'kpathsea: Running mktexmf ptmr7t! I can't find..
Today I was working on my thesis / QE document and wanted to have IEEE style referencing included in my document (using the built in references features). At first I started trying to modify one of the existing templates (found in /Program..
Today I presented a recent paper on "Adaptive Mixed Bias Resource Allocation for Wireless Mesh Networks" at the BWCCA conference in Fukuoka Japan. The paper is authored by myself and Thabo Nkwe from the University of Guelph. The abstract is..

Since I have been working with ns2 for the last few months in preparation for my thesis I have decided to write a guide on how to install the most recent version of ns2 on the most recent version of ubuntu (at the time of this writing. For the next stage of my thesis instead of using the well known ns-2 simulator as originally planned, I have opted to instead use ns-3.
