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. Continue discovering "The Futurama code: First part"

what is the best computer for you
At the time of buy a PC the first that you have to ask yourself is, what use I'm going to give to it? Depending if you want it for play, do graphic design, edit video, programming or simply surfing internet or write documents, the characteristics of the computer that more suits your needs will be very different.

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.

Supercomputer Tianher-1A
Its name is Tianhe-1A, is located in Tianjin (China) and can execute 2.507 petaflops, that is equivalent to 2.507.000.000.000.000.000 floating point operations per second. Is, therefore, the computer that execute more operations with decimals per second, this doesn't implies that is the more fast in the world, as others say, but is the more fast making this kind of operations.

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.

Code and a processor
In this post I'm going to explain something quite basic, but a lot of people unknown or simply don't understand well.
I'm going to clarify why the algorithms (sequence of steps that has to realizy a computer to complete a determinate task), are execute more faster in hardware than in software. Learn more about "Any algorithm in hardware is faster than in software"
