Matrix en ASCII, el DVD.


Para quienes no se enteraron ayer salio este blog linkeado en FayerWayer, y en vista de las peticiones de la gente que comento y sigue comentando la aparicion de StarWars via Telnet... ahora le tenemos Matrix en ASCII: aca el Torrent de 4,38 GB y 2 horas y 16 minutos (no, no es broma). Tambien hay un video corto de ejemplo (33 MB, 42 segundos) y un video largo de de ejemplo (altamente recomendado) (358 MB, 6 minutos y 36 segundos). Ademas como bonus track para los regalones tenemos la plantilla del DVD y la caratula .

Todo esto y muchas cosas mas obtenidas de la pagina del autor, o mas bien del tipo que se rippio la pelicula con mplayer y aalib. En su pagina pueden ver todo el proceso, osea, el como hacer (how to).

Para los que aun quieren ver mas, aca pueden ver mas peliculas en ASCII, un tanto lento, pero bueno. (Spiderman, y las restantes Matrix)

Gracias al Leo por el link de ayer.

Enjoy!

Star Wars... en ASCII


Hay gente que dice que soy jugoso por andar mirando sitios que a nadie (pareciera que) interesan... bueno, esta es una prueba feaciente de ello (-.-)

Me encanta ver graficas hechas en Framebuffer... pero si estan en ASCII... las amo!!!
via ThE FuCkInG sHiT.OrG encontre Star Wars...pasada completamente a ASCII... hay gente con mucho, pero mucho tiempo libre... y sobre todo, con paciencia...

Escriban esto en su Terminal. (Para los que todavia usen esa mierda llamada Window$: Inicio->Ejecutar->cmd)

telnet 193.202.115.241

Por lo visto, la version para IPv6 : “has extra scenes and extra color support. So if you want to experience ascii starwars to it’s fullest you really should get IPv6.”

Las jotos de LA charla

Weno en vista a las peticiones que nos atocharon el correo esta semana (-.-) aca les tenemos las jotos de la charl sobre GNOME que le hicimos en el Santo Tomas de conce el 4 de Nov. Enjoy. (el de polera verde es el pobre tipo que no tenia nada mas que hacer que darles la lata por casi 2 horas)


Mi nerviosismo al empezar... mas que evidente.


Cual equipo de futbol (estos son los que se quedaron al raspao de la olla)

Cosas para decir cuando vas perdiendo en una discusión tecnica




Things to say when you’re losing a technical argument / Cosas para decir cuando vas perdiendo en una discusión tecnica:

1. That won’t scale.
2. That’s been proven to be O(N^2) and we need a solution that’s O(NlogN).
3. There are, of course, various export limitations on that technology.
4. The syntax is idiosyncratic.
5. Trying to build a team behind that technology would be a staffing nightmare.
6. That can’t be generalized to a cross-platform build.
7. Unfortunately, the license would contaminate our product.
8. If we go with that idea, we’re going to have Don Marti camped out in the front lobby with 300 angry software jihad supporters.
9. Our support infrastructure simply can’t handle the volume that change would involve.
10. I had one of the interns try that approach for another project, and it scrambled the CEO’s hard drive. So I think it’s going to be a hard sell.
11. Yes, well, that’s just not the way things work in the real world.
12. I like your idea. Why don’t you write up a white paper and we’ll review it at the next staff meeting?
13. Unfortunately, we’re an all-FORTH shop. Otherwise, it’s a nice idea.
14. I think you need to stop taking this so personally. We need to think about what’s best for the project, not about our own little pet theories.
15. Oh, I played with that approach back as an undergrad. Got a D, too.
16. I was reading about that on BugTraq yesterday.
17. Yes, I believe that’s the approach Windows NT is taking.
18. That’s totally inefficient on modern hardware.
19. Well, yes, but it really reduces to the knapsack problem in that case. Do you have some kind of heuristic, or are we dealing with an NP-complete case?
20. Have you LOOKED at the number of I/O requests that will create?
21. We can’t afford the transaction overhead.
22. Yeah, or we could all just plink away on Amigas or something.
23. What? I don’t speak your crazy moon-language.
24. Hmm. Didn’t they just go bankrupt? It’s OK, I guess — there’s some German company who’s picked up the existing service contracts.
25. No, no, no. We’re really working on an N-TIER architecture, here.
26. No, no, no. It’s fairly important that the database be in THIRD NORMAL FORM.
27. No, that would break object encapsulation.
28. I don’t think that’s altogether clear. Please write it up in UML for me.
29. I think there’s a problem with your drive geometry.
30. Can you generate some USE CASES that would justify the change?
31. How is that going to impact the schedule?
32. RAM is cheap and all, but…
33. It would probably be best if we deferred that until version 2.0.
34. I like it, but it is too point-oh for my tastes.
35. If you make this change, I will fork the code.
36. Yes, well, unfortunately the economy is going away from anything remotely like that. Our investors would kill us.
37. Jakob Nielsen wrote an interesting hit piece on that.
38. Yes, yes, we’ve all read DJB’s RFCs on the subject.
39. This is all covered in Knuth, and we don’t have time to go over it again.
40. This one is in the FAQ: http://www.linuxmafia.com/~rick/faq/#your_dumb_technology
41. I don’t have time for this extropian nonsense.
42. Well, I guess we could start the QA cycles again from square one. That would require a press release, though.
43. You used to program in Pascal, didn’t you?
44. Why don’t we make a generalized solution including both options, and let the administrator decide with a config-file setting?
45. You’ve obviously ignored the various namespace issues.
46. I don’t think you’re considering the performance trade-offs.
47. What kind of benchmarks have you been running?
48. Let’s table this for now, and we’ll talk about it one-on-one off-line.
49. This really doesn’t jibe with our core competency.
50. This sort of thing should really be outsourced.
51. I remember that IBM had a project to do that back in the 70s.
52. Um, hello? We’re using VON NEUMANN MACHINES HERE.
53. We need this to fit on a single floppy.
54. Yes, but can this be embedded in a toaster, for example?
55. We need something that my mom can use.
56. Users won’t want to click through that many layers of hierarchy.
57. The packaging costs will be prohibitive.
58. OK, but what about internationalization?
59. Look, would you just get off your Be obsession for FIVE MINUTES and talk serious design with us?
60. That’s a good idea — you should do that on your home page.
61. Yeah, Linuxcare tried that with the Sourceror project.
62. Ho, man! Are they still AROUND? That’s so cool. I thought that whole idea was discredited years ago.
63. What you’re not seeing is the difference between an ‘is-a’ and a ‘has-a’ relationship.
64. There is no hope for the widow’s son, Boaz.
65. Yes, but we’re standardizing on XML.
66. That doesn’t fit into the MVC model.
67. Well, that’s great if you have an AI running the thing.
68. Well, they’re going to do that with the next version of Perl, so we should probably wait.
69. Well, they’re going to do that with the next version of OS X, so we should probably wait.
70. I heard that the only real application for that technology was child pornography. How did you hear about it?

Gnome en el Santo Tomas



Bueno, al fin cerro esta corta semana, y termine de hacer algunas cosas que tenia pendientes hace tiempo (Hola Anine!!) , para poder darles espacio a unas cuantas otras (PSU...ggrr...):)

Novedades: Me invito Lester (un tipo que conoci en el Encuentro Linux del a~o pasado), a participar en las jornadas de informatica del Santo Tomas de Concepcion. La verdad, por la semana que tuve, esa invitacion paso a ser un cacho. :(. Pa terminar la presentacion (Que hice sobre Gnome, off course), tuve pa pasar la noche anterior despierto, terminandola... y aun asi llegue a dar la charla con un leve retraso, y con la presentacion sin terminar... asi que me toco meterle mano on the highway. Al final todo salio excelente, o al menos eso me hicieron sentir los asistentes; que si bien fueron bastante reducidos, estuvieron muy atentos a la charla, y se mostraron muy interesados en Hackear para Gnome (yuppi!). Ojala y estas jornadas sigan realizandose, y obvimente, inviten a jugar Unreal!!

Con respecto al Ledger... poco avance... mucho ruido y pocas nueces :'(. Nose, estoy trancado. Sin comentarios.

El siguiente fin de semana mi hermano diego cumple a~os... cumple 6!!!! mi hermanito, lo quiero tanto.


Asi que el siguiente fin de semana estare en Santiago pa estar con el, la familia, la polola, y todas las alima~as, perdon, los amigos ;-)
