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"

Leonardo Da Vinci
At the prior post, I did an explanation about how break the encryption of the alien alphabet 1, used subliminally in several episodes of Futurama. Today I'm going to do the same with the alien alphabet 2. Although you don't see Futurama, if you want know some mysteries of the cryptography, don't let of read this post. Enter into "The Futurama code: Second part"

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. Finish reading "The Futurama code: First part"

Newell's Teapot
A lot of people have seen this object without knowing it in animation films, videogames and screensavers, because also is an object that appears as basic in almost all the tools of 3D modeling (3D Studio Max, POV-Ray, AutoCAD, etc). Even there are functions to create this teapot in a lot of libraries of graphic programming, this is due to that, like the Lena's photo, this 3D model of a teapot, has been converted in the standard of reference in a lot of scientific papers of 3D graphics. Don't stop reading the rest of "The Newell's teapot"

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. Don't miss the rest of "Shutting down Windows and the halting problem"
