Top 10 Portable Tools for Network Administrators by Wesley David - October 27, 2010 Working as a systems administrator oftentimes requires you to interact with many different computers in a single day. One minute you're dealing with cranky users complaining about slow performance on their PCs and the next minute your soothing badly behaving domain controllers. Having to interact with so many different PCs makes it all the more advantageous to keep a core set of tools with you at all times. Many useful tools can be run from a portable storage device and some have even been specifically designed to run on portable storage devices.
Algorithms and Data Structures Algorithm: a process or set of rules used for calculation or problem-solving, esp. with a computer.Program: a series of coded instructions to control the operation of a computer or other machine. Example Problem: Find the greatest common divisor (GCD) of two integers, m and n.Euclid's Algorithm: while m is greater than zero: If n is greater than m, swap m and n. Subtract n from m. n is the GCD The Algorithm: Idiom of Modern Science by Bernard Chazelle hen the great Dane of 20th century physics, Niels Bohr, was not busy chewing on a juicy morsel of quantum mechanics, he was known to yap away witticisms worthy of Yogi Berra. The classic Bohrism “Prediction is difficult, especially about the future” alas came too late to save Lord Kelvin. Just as physics was set to debut in Einstein's own production of Extreme Makeover, Kelvin judged the time ripe to pen the field's obituary: “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now.”
CompSci 101 - Big-O notation I recently had a couple of Google interviews in Tokyo, and while preparing for them I ended up with a huge list of things I wanted to brush up on before the interview. It turns out I didn’t get the job (next time!), but I thought I might be able to learn something anyway by working through the list and blogging about the main areas that companies like Google expect you to know. I’ve grabbed the domain computerscience101.org (which currently redirects back here), and when I’ve collected enough posts I plan to throw everything up there as a kind of chapter-by-chapter interview-primer in the hope that it might help someone else out.
Project, product and portfolio management software - Rational Focal Point - Software Project/Portfolio Management software applications capability have advanced as a rule over time. Still, there is not one PPM software application that can enable a business to become defect free in the execution of their business model. There may never be! CIS Department > Tutorials > Software Design Using C++ An Online Book These web pages attempt to provide the material needed for three complete computer science courses: what are typically called CS 1, CS 2, and a data structures course, all using C++ as the programming language. (At Saint Vincent College these courses are numbered CS 110, CS 111, and CS 221). Most of the examples have been tested with Microsoft's Visual C++ .NET 2008 compiler under Windows.
Help the judge All submissions for this problem are available. A scandal has been revealed in the ruling political party: there is a large case of corruption! You are the judge in the case, and you have a lot of evidence at your disposal. Unfortunately, some of the statements may potentially contradict the others. Your Life is an Algorithm, Your Brain is an Operating System | Endless Innovation Ever wondered how you were supposed to keep up with the never-ending stream of content and data in your life? Not to worry, the elves of the Internet are busy at work, creating everything from magical little algorithms that automatically execute basic tasks to sophisticated utility apps that run in the background, taking care of all the minutiae in your daily life. Forget about hiring a personal assistant, you can “hire” off-the-shelf algorithms and digital apps that do all the heavy lifting for you.
Maze Generation: Growing Tree algorithm # An implementation of the "Growing Tree" algorithm. This one is # notable for it's ability to become nearly identical to Prim's # algorithm, or the Recursive Backtracking algorithm, depending on # how the cells are removed from the list that aggregates as the # algorithm runs. Why every single one of you should learn a little code As technology becomes more and more ingrained in our everyday lives, you have to make a choice: Are you a consumer of tech, or are you someone who understands it? Buying the latest iPhone and keeping up with the who-works-where, who’s-launching-what tech gossip is all fine and good, but if you can’t code, you ain’t no kind of techie. Startups like Codecademy are making it easy to learn coding online — easy enough for school children, in fact.
Clever Algorithms in Python « Sai Panyam.NET Overview Clever Algorithms in Python was born out of the need to understand and assimilate the original Clever Algorithms by Jason Brownlee. Please read about my motivations and goals here: Overview, Stochastic Algorithms – Part 1 & Part 2 Download » A Speculative Post on the Idea of Algorithmic Authority Clay Shirky Jack Balkin invited me to be on a panel yesterday at Yale’s Information Society Project conference, Journalism & The New Media Ecology, and I used my remarks to observe that one of the things up for grabs in the current news environment is the nature of authority. In particular, I noted that people trust new classes of aggregators and filters, whether Google or Twitter or Wikipedia (in its ‘breaking news’ mode.) I called this tendency algorithmic authority.
A Real Turing Machine Running The Busy Beaver Remember my article on The Busy Beaver Problem? Well, someone built a real Turing Machine and decided to run the busy beaver with 4 states on it. Here is the video. The Turing Machine in this video runs for 107 steps and halts with the total of 13 ones, as expected. In my article on The Busy Beaver Problem, I also wrote a program that visualizes the tape changes.
