Haha, wow. Yes, that is the traveling salesman problem it's talking about.

> solve the travelling salesman problem

That's where your hopes and dreams went wrong. ;^)

Thought this was awesome:

The petascale era of high performance computing is here, with new machines that run 10^15 calculations per second. In celebration of Petascale Day (10/15), the Computation Institute and the Research Computing Center invite University of Chicago and Argonne researchers to learn about the opportunities created by petascale computing, and the computational resources available on campus and at the lab.

Sheesh. LHC gets so much news, but you won't hear people talking about this equally awesome discovery!
New research has shown that subatomic particles called neutrinos have a previously unseen identity-shifting property. The results confirm early indications that neutrinos change between different types, or oscillate, in three ways where they had previously only been seen oscillating in two ways.

looks really interesting, but why no love for real editors? I would think that a quick and dirty vim and emacs version would be on the top of the list.

Sweet. They better come up with an awesome name for this language.

Let's hope! #acmtechnews  P.S., now that the quarter's over, I can start abusing social media again! Hi G+!

I'm more curious about how we could revert to analog display systems to render arbitrary base shapes the way vector graphics do. Possibly lasers?

It's barely worth asking this, but does anybody know a good way to automatically wake my computer from suspend/hibernate at a particular time, specified say by the command line in advance? (On Linux, of course.) There's a great alarm clock app for Mac that can do this, by the way...

There is some BIOS magic called Wake-On-LAN, where the BIOS can monitor the ethernet port for some kind of special signal while running on just the CMOS batt; and since the BIOS keeps track of time, it seems like a small step to a BIOS function that will wake up the compy at the right time.

When the processor is effectively powerless, it wouldn't be kernel level. Such a thing must be done at the CMOS/BIOS level.

Alternatively, if your computer supports wake on LAN, you'd configure your BIOS for it, and then find some kind of crazy device that will blast a wake-on-LAN signal at the specified time (perhaps a cell phone app if the phone is on the house interwebs?)

I knew it, shamelessly from Reddit. I have horrible memories from DARE.
