Sometimes... they come back!

We meet again, powerglove!!

I turned it microtonal, lowered MIDI latency through a better sound card, introduced modulation and exponential volume control. It's starting to kick some serious ass!!

One step beyond!

Gaudeamus igitur! "Numerical signals processing" exam is gone!

Really unexpected, prof. Malcangi is a saint!!

Well, another little slice has been torn away from the exams pie. Now, let's pray for the Cybernetics one... running toward Computer Graphics!

Bye bye Calculus...

...and farewell Weierstraß, Bolzano, Fermat, Rolle, Lagrange, Torricelli, Barrow, Taylor, Riemann and friends!!!

I definitively WON'T miss you all!

Better than nothing

Gathered 1.5/3 points in Cybernetics Lab, and a 17/30 in Calculus.

Not very much, but strictly greater than zero!

Standing on the thin line between failure and success, let's jump toward the final judgement!

The end of the tunnel

Only four lessons more to go: cybernetics lessons are almost over. After that, I'll have a couple of weeks or relax, which I'm gonna spend powergloving!

If I'd pass the exam, obviously. But I HAVE to.

In the meanwhile, between a Jacobi and a Gauß-Seidel, I found a way to learn OpenGL applying cellular automata! These are the results: first "demo"! I always idolatred the demoscene and their works, I consider them true genious and real Artists. Naturally, I'm very far from them. This is kinda tribute.

Some demos/intros are pure mathematical poetry, absolutely brilliant and one of the few demonstrations of real powers of a modern computer. Nowadays none optimizes, studies in depth processors and spends his time squeezing any cycle from a CPU: that magic is gone.

I miss it very much.
