Floyd-Warshall (C code)


For all of you who at some point had to implement the Floyd-Warshall algorithm out there, here is a possible way of doing it on C:

FW_Code

This code includes the necessary functions to calculate the path within the network, once the algorithm has been executed. The files include an input and output example.

If you don’t know how the Floyd-Warshall algorithm works then i suggest you read the following Wikipedia article:

Floyd-Warshall

I very much doubt i could explain it much better here, but I hope my code can take some of the work off!

LCH and Kokoshca


This past weekend I went to a show at a local bar in Santander. Not even halfway there I was already hating the fact that I had forgotten  to bring earplugs again, and knowing how little regard this particular bar has for music volume I was already preparing myself for a long night of intense music and post-show ear ringing.
The bands were LCH and Kokoshca, both from Spain, and I originally didn’t expect much from them, since a friend of mine had been talking constantly about both of them for the past week. We could say I had grown tired of their names without having even gone to the show yet.
This, however changed rapidly soon into the show.
LCH is a well known local band and as usual, they did not disappoint. It is however the second band that played that night that I’d like to comment on. Positively that is, of course.
With a well staged performance followed by a homy atmosphere with sofas and not too many people, one might think it would lack some kick. But as they went through their setlist their music gained in strength and carried quite a punch. I would describe them as a renewed, slightly more on the Pop side version of The B52′s, although that might be due to their vocalists, whose voices resemble those of The B52′s.

Overall, both highly recommended bands.

All Good Things…


Don’t believe when you confide is me, I don’t get your thrift – but you keep saying that we know the drill. I have to follow, have to follow the head. Humbleness is not the major thing, neither modesty. You’ve got a big ego indeed; is not as big as me. So what? SO WHAT? What do you think you’re doing? What? So what? So what do you think you’re doing now? Now all the big and broken promises, failing behind me. So what? So what? So what do you think you’re doing? What? SO WHAT? So what do you think you’re doing now?

Everything reminds me of you, from the movies to the music we knew, and I’m going round in circles and I don’t know what to do, coz’ everything reminds me of you.
Everyday’s a trip to the moon, everyday I tell myself “soon.. I won’t be going round in circles and I’ll know just what to do”.
Couse everything reminds me of you. Everything reminds me of you, from the movies to the music we knew, and I’m going round in circles and I don’t know what to do, coz’ everything reminds me of you.

I’m OK with the little you give. I’m ok and I’m not dropping a hint that it’s ok like this. OK, the contradiction is me, crash it off and you see no thing to fix. OK, the kid is me. /… / I’m fine when the daylight retreats. I feel it’s my retrieval of me, just what I want to see. /… / Hey! I need to touch what i thought I had: your back, my back, the back of our hands. /… / I know a place to be outta place, I’m not very far, far, far away. Hey! I need to touch what i thought I had: your back, my back, the back of our hands.

Logic Friday OS X


So, a couple of years ago i set myself to find a simple program that could perform simple digital algebra operations. Eventually i found Logic Friday, which turned out to be simple to use, fast and powerful enough for simple problems. It is basically a GUI for espresso and misII and it works wonderfully. However it is only available for windows, so here is a simple Mac version of Logic Friday (thanks to Wine). I have tested it in multiple apple computers running 10.8 and it worked fine.

All the credit to Sontrak  (where you can download the original windows version and obtain further information on the Logic Friday tool) and to the espresso and misII tools*

You can download the Mac version here: LogicFriday.zip (251.0 MB)

Martes Gua Gua


Bueno pues aquí dejo el programa que hicimos hace poco en el centro cultural Eureka para el ciclo de Martes Gua Gua de podcasts sobre la música en la nube con la colaboración de Repion, que aceptaron a tocar en directo y a una entrevista!

Podéis escucharlo en el soundcloud o en bandcamp!

Nothing to be done


As i look around the room, observing the people here, all of them looking for a job I’m told the schedule. It does not work for me, but i decide to stay anyways, i thought it could be interesting. It is a group interview.

There are about 30 of us, and the interviewer just asked us to sell her a tooth brush. An electric tooth brush. There are all kinds of people here. All of them with the same objective, getting this phone sales job. In a country mostly unemployed.

I’m only here looking for a student job that can fit into my universities schedule and this is a full time kind of thing. Everyone here probably needs it more than i do.

Just about 45% of the people here are capable of improvising a decent dialogue about this hypothetical electric tooth brush.

No one bought the brush, despite its rechargeable batteries. Or its interchangeable head. Or the colour options. Or its extreme high rotation speeds.
