Very cool.

I did a lot of mucking around with Simulated Annealing and the Metropolis algorithm while in uni. Using it for tasks like fitting various sized files onto minimum numbers of floppy disks, finding optimum solutions for student + classroom + teacher timetables for schools etc.

But given the money to be made in the financial realm, I can't see these algorithms making it to the public domain any time soon.

As I understand it, is this a new approach to Dijkstra's sophisticated algorithm?

Hi all. I was able to set up an IBM Ultrium LTO 4 tape drive to use iSCSI (using open-iscsi drivers) to communicate with Red Hat, but it's going really slow, maxing out in tar and dd tests at like 16 MB/s (using a block size of 128k). The thing is rated for 30MB/s. I feel like even though I have... (1 Reply)
