Ramblings about software, research and other things

Weird and gross

I always get a kick out of the error message that appears when trying to install TeX with Homebrew.

$ brew install tex
Error: No available formula for tex
Installing TeX from source is weird and gross, requires a lot of patches,
and only builds 32-bit (and thus can't use Homebrew deps on Snow Leopard.)

We recommend using a MacTeX distribution: http://www.tug.org/mactex/
