  Sigma Xi: The Scientific Research Society: About Sigma Xi
Sigma Xi (Xi is pronounced with a "Z" sound-"Zi"-as in "xylophone") was founded in 1886 to honor excellence in scientific investigation and encourage a sense of companionship and cooperation among researchers in all fields of science and engineering.
Today, Sigma Xi is an international, multidisciplinary research society whose programs and activities promote the health of the scientific enterprise and honor scientific achievement.
While many Sigma Xi programs are administered directly through it chapters, some long-standing programs of the Society continue to be central to its overall mission.

 Stata help for xi
xi expands terms containing categorical variables into indicator (also called dummy) variable sets by creating new variables, and, in the second syntax (xi: any_stata_command), executes the specified command with the expanded terms.
You do not have to do this; each time you use xi, any previously created automatically generated dummies with the same prefix as the one specified in the prefix() option (_I by default) are dropped and new ones created.
- xi creates new variables in your data; most are bytes but interactions with continuous variables will have the storage type of the underlying continuous variable; see data types.

So, this entry is an attempt to make a brief introduction to XI, which is currently a main topic for this blog.
This means that each XI programming construct is represented as a database frame; there is no need to implement bridge between program and database, no need to map programming language objects to database ones, etc. Uniformness of code and data is also a well-known feature of Lisp.
XI isn’t going to be a next scripting language and it will feature with machine code compiler for the very first steps (in fact, it has beginnings of this compiler already); machine code compiler is a mechanism that transform programs that are represented as a set of frames to frames that contain executable binary.

 Final Fantasy XI for PlayStation 2 Review - PlayStation 2 Final Fantasy XI Review
Final Fantasy XI is actually a two-year-old game, but there's still very little else like it on the PlayStation 2.
It's true that Final Fantasy XI is simpler in some ways than most other MMORPGs, but the simplified aspects--your character doesn't need to eat and cannot grow fatigued from running too much, for example--are mostly to the game's credit.
Since any Final Fantasy XI player will inevitably end up staring at the graphics and listening to the sounds for long stretches at a time, their quality does make a big difference.

 Minolta DiMAGE Xi: Digital Photography Review
Building on the success of the highly popular and award winning Minolta DiMAGE X, the new DiMAGE Xi is equipped with a 3.3 megapixel CCD (3.2 million effective pixels) as well as a host of new functions and features.
The new Minolta DiMAGE Xi is approximately ¾ of an inch thick and shares the same revolutionary folded 3x optical zoom lens as the DiMAGE X. Making a camera this thin would be impossible with conventional zoom lens technology.
Images captured with the high-quality lens of the DiMAGE Xi are enhanced by Minolta's CxProcess image processing technology, which helps control sharpness, color reproduction, tonal gradation and noise.

 Minolta Dimage Xi Reviews. Digital cameras Reviews by CNET.
The 3.2-megapixel Xi's image quality is respectable, too, although photo enthusiasts shouldn't expect much in the way of manual control--this is primarily a point-and-shoot gadget.
Design of Minolta Dimage Xi The svelte, 0.8-inch profile of the brushed-aluminum-and-stainless-steel Dimage Xi is noteworthy in itself, but more impressive is the innovative manner in which the slimness is achieved.
Performance of Minolta Dimage Xi The Dimage Xi really excels in a couple of key performance aspects, boasting both a quick start-up time and a very brief shutter lag, qualities that coincide quite nicely with its carry-everywhere and shoot-anytime dimensions.

 DCRP Review: Minolta DiMAGE Xi
At the end of 2002, Minolta began shipping the DiMAGE Xi ($449), which is very similar to the original "X", but with a 3.2 Megapixel CCD, and a few other enhancements.
The DiMAGE Xi's 16MB Secure Digital (SD) memory card is twice as large as the one included with the original DiMAGE X. It'll be a good card to start with, but you'll probably want to buy a larger one soon after your camera purchase.
The Xi has as built-in lens cover, so there is no need to worry about lens caps.
