Officially Dead

If there’s anyone following my posts on this blog, I’m coming here today to announce that this blog is officially dead. It’s not that I won’t be posting anymore. It’s just that, once again, I’m moving to another blog. Furthermore, this isn’t the last post in this blog. The last will contain the new address of my new blog :)

So, stay tunned to the new announcement that hopefully I’ll be posting soon.

Perhaps the world is polynomial

So today is a historical one for mathematicians, physicians, computing scientists and much more people. Here in Recife, at the Federal University of Pernambuco, there is a man (Sóstenes Lins) which claims to have proven that P = NP. Hyperbolic plane and quantum computer are his words to motivate people about this extraordinary breakthrough. Well, I wasn’t at the presentation, because I was teaching PhysX… But I’m waiting to see available (i.e. in some video sharing site) the recording made by one of our teachers.

Just repeating: the day March, 27, 2008 is a historical day.

For this new year

Yeap, it’s 2008 already.

This year I’ll attend a master degree program at Center of Informatics. In the ranking of people accepted, I’m the 10th :D

And I’m trying to reach some goals until the end of that course. One of them is to learn German. Another is learn how to package thing for autotools and Ubuntu.

With no further sayings, have a great 2008! :)

Fab at home, an open source 3D printer

So, just got home and, as usual, I was checking e-mail and RSS before hitting the bed… And then i faced this news: an open source 3D printer.
