typewriter
Because of the close of the last factory of typewriter (Godrej and Boyce), I'm going to talk about the distribution of the keys on a computer keyboard, because they have inhereted the distribution of its keys. This is a fateful contribution to the computer world, do you want to know why? Don't miss the rest of "Why that position of the keys?"

optical fiber
The Christmas arrived, the streets are full of led diodes of high luminescence, the house of Christmas trees of optical fiber, the computers of USB ornaments and Santa Claus brings robots and computers to the children. A lot of technology to celebrate the born of Isaac Newton as must be. In this post I'm going to talk about how works the Christmas trees of optical fiber.

Monitor with giant cactus
Formerly, when still the CRT (Cathodic Ray Tube) monitors were in use, emerge the myth of cactus that absorb the monitor radiations. This swindle probably was thought by some illuminated herbalist that saw the bulky filters antiradiaton that was putting in front of the screen. Surely though that he can win a lot of money selling cactus as substitute of this filters, because a cactus is a lot of more nice and friendly than an authentic filter antiradiation. Follow reading if you want to know why this belief is absurd. Show more of "The myth of the antiradiation cactus"

End Task
When we shutdown the computer, the operating system send a message to all the applications to end them. If some don't finalize, in the case of Windows XP, appears a window with a progress bar that advance slowly and makes us wait with the message "Ending Program". A better option, is press in "End Now", because the timeout that shows, simply is for leave the time pass, not for do something. Read the rest of the post if you want to know how shutdown faster your computer. Read the rest of "Shutting down Windows and the halting problem"

A photo has been converted in the standard of reference in the computer sciences. Over this have been applied, from the years 70, a big quantity of algorithms of graphic computing, compression and artificial intelligence. Finish reading "The photo of Lena Söderberg"

Alan Turing
The same as others disciplines as mathematics, the informatics don't have Nobel prize. So a equivalent award, had to be invented in computer science, called Turing prize, in honor to Alan Turing, that did important contributions to the computer science in the beginning of it.

When Ray Tomlinson invented the e-mail in 1971, surely he didn't thought that the at sign, will convert in an Internet symbol (Arpanet in that moment). Read more of "History of the at sign"

The vitruvian Bender
Not a lot of time ago has been resumed one of my favourite series, Futurama, realized by Matt Groenning, the creator of the Simpson.
Between the scriptwriters of Futurama are involved several scientist that provides continuously references to the science. In this post I'm going to explain the cryptography used in the series for code some alien inscriptions. Show more of "The Futurama code: First part"

IPv6
To identify any device in Internet, this must have a IP assigned (is something similar to a telephone number that identifies uniquely every computer). But these numbers, that use the format established by the protocol IPv4, are running out, making that in a few months would be necessary the use of numbers more large, whose format was established by the protocol IPv6.

Alan Turing
In an epoch in that only were a few mechanic calculators, Alan Turing, was able to define the working, the limits and the possibilities of the computers. He not only was ahead to his epoch, but also to the actual and if had not been suicided, probably he would invented something that would convert the computers in something obsolete.
