In news:

The open-source folks argue that simply shipping a software program's binaries (the.exe files) and keeping the source code secret is a bad idea from the consumer's and even the vendor's point of view.
Computer Science Unplugged is a website and resource that helps you teach your kids about binary numbers, sorting algorithms, finite state automata, programming languages, and many more concepts.
Wheeler 's "initial orders" allowed Edsac instructions to be provided in a simple language rather than by writing binary numbers, and made it possible for non-specialists to begin to write programs.

Harries et al. (2003) recently presented first results from an ongoing program to study over 100 eclipsing binaries in the SMC, using OGLE photometry and radial velocities obtained in multiplexed fashion with the 2dF spectrograph.

Meanwhile, Ribas et al. (2004) are carrying out a similar follow-up program of DIRECT DEBs in M31, and Todd et al. (2005) have announced the discovery of additional eclipsing binaries in M31.
