a 30 anni invece

Generazione X in crisi di mezza età dal Corriere della Sera

Mi chiedo quanto questi articoli siano una forma di revisionismo storico/claricale… ho gia’ mia madre che se ne esce con demonizzazioni del ’68 appena ne ha la possibilita’… immagino mi mandera’ una busta di carta anche con quest’articolo. Si, mia madre nel 2010, trova un articolo interessante, lo ritaglia e me lo spedisce in Germania (e’ della classe del ’34).

A 30 anni dovrei iniziare a fare un bilancio delle cose fatte, e non posso essere che soddisfatto per un ragazzo della mia eta’. Ma se devo vedermi da qui a quando avro’ 40anni, beh, come ora demonizzo quelli che a 20 dicono di voler lavorare e studiare, ripenso alle parole di Fuggetta, e mi dico che forse sarebbe bene darsi una mossa.

Boh…

mi pareva di averlo gia’ vissuto

Non so che dire… a volte penso che questo blog serva piu’ a me per rendermi conto che ripasso sempre per gli stessi bivi… e anche stavolta… non ho un contratto, ma ho la fiducia di chi mi sta attorno che va rispettata…

Avrei voglia di andare a parlare nelle scuole medie a spiegare ai ragazzi come valutare cosa vorranno fare da grandi. Le mie metriche?

– settore: quanto c’e’ lavoro
– casa o non? “specializzazione” significa doversene andare
– obiettivi di vita

Perche’ nelle scuole non si parla mai di “artigianato” (come obiettivo di carriera)? E’ il cuore della nostra industria.

non ho compresso nulla… e i resti sono enormi…
comincio a dubitare della mia idea

in compenso mi sono divertito con python… (magra consolazione)

i sorci sono disponibili qui: Math Series Mapping

p.s. per chi volesse farsi del male e “misurare” la velocita’ del proprio pc puo’ provare il generatore di numeri di Fibonacci che ho codato per l’occasione… e’ un buon modo per far andare la CPU di quel nuovissimo pc che vi siete presi, tanto con WORD non lo metterete mai sotto carico come si deve 😀

extreme compression

grinder:workspace zeph$ python try.py
original_size:150516
divisor_size:15052
135464 / 1 120412 / 1 105361 / 1 90309 / 1 75258 / 1 60206 / 1 45155 / 1 30103 / 1 15052 / 1 iterations:9
reconstructing . . . . . . . . . . reconstructed_size:150516

source code: python tryout for compression fibonacci generator [warning! it might damage your pc… 🙂 ]

basically… was a lot of time I had to make a demo on this… keeping the result of a division, and the module, we can compress a file infinite times…

    res = src
    while res > pip:
        res = src / pip
        mod = src % pip
        saving.append(mod)
        src = res

every file is a string of ones and zeros, right? so, it is a number

we can recursively apply this algorithm till we reach the size we want

it is extremely time consuming, so, better use it only for log files and ISO images

the target is to use a divisor as much as big as the “number” to divide… this is easy to achieve using a standard math serie like Fibonacci… 1*10^6 number of fibonacci is pretty big… 1*10^9 HUGE!

at the end you only need to keep, this string “1*10^9” (6 digits!) + the number of iterations (1 or 2 digits?) + the last result of the division and the last result of the module

        while True:
            mod = saving.pop()
            back =  back * pip + mod

comments? 🙂

in the sample I went down from 150k to 15k … not bad, ah?
(k, I used an array as support datastructure, but the tryout is to show that it is possible)

I already imagine storage of logs of ISPs, with a FPGA implementation of this trick…

non aver più nulla da dire

E’ brutto. Mi accorgo che è da parecchio che non tengo più aggiornato il blog. Gli ultimi post sono soltanto riferimenti a video e/o a post di altri. Non ho piu’ nulla di mio da scrivere. Facebook ha assorbito il mio lato “cazzate”. E la parte di me che aveva qualcosa da dire, si è spenta. Da quando ho lasciato l’Italia sto cercando di non voltarmi più indietro per evitare bile e notti insonni. Così facendo ho spento la mia molla.

Sarò un po’ come la sinistra? La sinistra senza Berlusconi è una sinistra allo sbando 😀

Ho preso la mia strada: quella del consulente internazionale. E’ difficile interessarsi degli affari locali, ci sto provando. Ma cmq sono ospite, sempre e comunque. Non ho voce in capitolo e non ho diritto di incazzarmi. Probabilmente mi sbaglio.

Forse dovrei chiuderlo questo blog. Non ho più nulla da dire.

religion & culture

May am I too much fondamentalist against Catholics? No, I’m not, at least not against the religion by itself, but against the Church. In the last 20 years, cause my mother is a teacher of religion after she retired from german teaching, I’ve been sent to summer camps by nuns, and I passed the last year of high school hosted in an hotel (managed by some priests) for rich guys (was supposed to be a place to give help to poor people)… I met 2 young good priests, but I also met many people devoted to “god money”, and not to what they where supposed to be.

I also hate fiercely the movement “Comunione e Liberazione”, which has reached in Italy a strong political and economic power… and people belonging to it are most interested in the power achieved by belonging to this “group” than to the religious background of it.

What I want to say with this post… some weeks ago I wrote a sentence very strong about how some people pretend to interpret the Bible and the Koran. Was not against the believers of the religions connected to those book, but against their hierarchies, and the fanatics. I believe in a world where everyone could be able to believe and practice his own religion without facing fights or prejudices, and a world also where people like me are able to NOT believe at all, without being pointed out as comunists or something else. By the way, I’m agnostic. And… I envy who believes… at least who believes has something to hope of… he/she has at least a path… a sort of explanation of life.

By the way… even if you are a “ciellino” (the term we use in Italy to point to someone which is part of “Comunione e Liberazione”), don’t feel angry about my post, if you are disappointed, reply or come to me if possible, and we will discuss about it. I can argue, at least… and you?

madness

you know what?

what’s this world about? born, grow, live… somehow, and die?

is this a fucking cicle?

are we passing by?

so what? should I spend my money to feel better? and who doesn’t have the money? who does not even have a roof over his head? or a meal? or even fresh water?

what’s this life about? out ancestors tried to describe us the path through Coran or Bible. Some assholes pretend to interpret those books at their needs. I do not like the church, I do no even better like the herarchy of the muslims. Even worse every stupid thing like Scientology or similar stuff. So what?

what’s important out there? enjoy our life trying to do the best? but what’s the best? grow a family?
even if we have to do a war to have the oil and the energy resources to warm our kids and wife? to give a SUV to her or a mobile phones with the latest ringtones to our childs? is that?

half of the planet is dying

what we do? fashion? are we fucking crazy?

give a sense to life (part two)

I never wrote “part one” but I can say: “I just passed part one”.

When I was a child I wanted to become an astronaut, than a military jet flyier, than a matematician, than… a sysop. I’m a sysop. Now I’m economically no more dependant by my parents. So what?

I should find another target. Life never stops. I hate the day by day.

1) go on with life… I’m healty, and at least I shall go on as respect to my dead friend
(I have many other reasons, don’t worry, but that’s the main one)

2) have a wife … IDIOT! (someone would say..) … no, I do not joke, I want a partner, than we’ll see. I do not want a sex buddy… I know myself… I’ll get in trouble with a sex buddy.

3) improve my knowledge on work and outside, mostly for fun

4) graduate… maybe

5) faith? uhmm… no clue… I saw too much shit in the world to be able to believe

… any suggest? (yes… “go to sleep, idiot!” could be a nice suggest too)

gute slafen 😉

p.s. today I bought an iPhone!
