30 ways to get 30 ways to get 30 ways to get...

Algorithms and Data structures are programmers' A-B-C, tiny and fundamental bricks which let them compose massive wall of code.

They represent the way a programmer intends to model reality's shape and behaviour.

Sounds like a great course -and actually it is- but it's often bypassed by students for its huge requirements of advanced algebric calculations.

Eg.: me.
I delayed 8 years this exam. It's a shame.

With this result I finally closed the "first year" chapter; it's a important day in my life.

Wonder of Nature (was "battle at Kruger")

Outstanding video; 8 minutes better than any action movie.

Nature is touching... breathtaking... harrowing and incredibly involving.

Emotion of purity.

30 (cum laude) reasons to love computergraphics!

Here we go!! "CG and multimedia" exam is achieved with the highest score!

I'll miss prof. Zuffi's lessons - and her as well, for she's a very nice person.

An interesting course; I learnt many things I always wanted to know and apply.

What else? One step toward graduation and taxes exemption obtained.

Shit, sometimes, does not happen!

Vista and Dev-Cpp

For unexplicable reasons, Dev-Cpp does not compile correctly under Windows Vista.

It seems that Microsoft's OS messes up with environment paths, or something.

After a morning of swears and curses, I found a post on SourceForge's forum, featuring a workaround.

All you have to do is:
  1. go in "tools > compiler options", move on "directories" tab and add "C:\Dev-Cpp\libexec\gcc\mingw32\3.4.2"
  2. go in "programs" ad put "C:\Dev-Cpp\bin\" before any executable name
Naturally, put no quotation marks and eventually replace C:\Dev-Cpp\ with your Dev-Cpp installation folder.

This seems to work. Upsetting anyway.
