Great minds think alike. Thank you Microsoft.

Do you remember my post “Need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education“?

There I wrote:

“Let’s create a fucking virus, which assembles based on our DNA sequence. I short protein sequence – much shorter, than DNA itself. Then, after cell division let a new one survive only if they both have the same identical virus copy, and kill it, if not.”

Now, we have some good news from Microsoft. They have assembled a “small army” of the world’s best biologists, programmers and engineers who are tackling cancer as if it were a bug in a computer system.

The researchers are even working on a computer made from DNA which could live inside cells and look for faults in bodily networks, like cancer. If it spotted cancerous chances it would reboot the system and clear out the diseased cells.

What I can say? Cool! Great minds think alike.

Do we need a supercomputer to calculate a virtual body model?

Reading about huge resources needed for DNA calculation and even more resources needed to create a full body model, I’ve got this question.

Do we need a supercomputer to calculate a virtual body model?

Yes, and No.

How is Bitcoin mining process going now?

Yes, they use the specialized chips. Such chips are made for specific task only. This makes them cheap and efficient for their job.

I think, we have to do the same to create a virtual body model based on DNA calculation. We need to split the tasks between specified chips, made for just one specific task and create a super-cluster of them.

Dixi.

Reverse engineering, you’re gonna love it

Fuck this shit, I'll be a stripper.

Fuck this shit, I’ll be a stripper.

Reverse engineering, something tells me, that it’s gonna be a most useful skill for control system engineers for next 20 years.
Really, imagine all the systems made in last 30 years with no standards. I mean the standards for SCADA/HMI. Those standards were just actually developed in this period. And most of those systems developers are already retired. To make it more fun, the large systems are made and were changed by different developers with their own understanding of a good development.

So, when you get this system for support or modification, you can find, that you cannot find. You cannot find any actual documentation, you cannot find two identical structures in the system, you cannot find any following of a KISS paradigma.
And in worth case, nobody even knows a process should be controlled, and they ask you. They ask you, who suppose to be a very last cell in a chain as a SCADA/HMI developer!
Now, how many such systems we have today? IMHO – 99.99%
Good luck everybody.

If Chrome stuck with “Downloading proxy script”

Recently have got an issue with Google Chrome – when opening new tab it was freezing with “Downloading proxy script” message in status line.

If you have the same (and already going to move to IE), you can do the following:

1. Go to Chrome Settings
2. Click “Show advanced settings…”
3. Under “Network” press button “Change Proxy Settings”
4. In “Internet Properties” window press button “LAN Settings” and uncheck “Automatically detect settings”

Thats all. It will be flying again.

Need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education

Yesterday night my grandma has passed away.
She was the best in this world.
Please, understand this right: this world is amazing place, and most of these people are really good. And in this good place and good people SHE WAS THE BEST.

So, I strongly disagree with current situation. Don’t tell me, this is natural. A nature has made us with an ability to change a nature itself, that is why it is natural to change natural things.

If everything is just in amount of DNA replication errors, and Hayflick limit just protect the organisms from turning into big cancer tumor, then we need another way to avoid these errors.

Let’s say, we use hash function with the check-sums to check the data integrity, when copying the files. Why we cannot use the same or kind of algorithm for our cells?

Let’s create a fucking virus, which assembles based on our DNA sequence. I short protein sequence – much shorter, than DNA itself. Then, after cell division let a new one survive only if they both have the same identical virus copy, and kill it, if not.

This mechanism may work as our biological data integrity check with not too much energy cost.

So, I need a DNA Scanner, DNA constructor, powerful computer, a lot of material and somebody, who has genetics education. And I miss my grandma.

Another gar (bigger)

20141007_10055728 3/4 inches (73 cm)

The same pond, and I have seen, there are still lots of them.

Actually, this is not exactly a “щука” (schuka) – this is a garpike - “панцирная щука“.
With heavy armor instead of skin. We had to use a metal cutters to cut it (native Caribbeans used a gar skin for breastplates). The feeling while cutting it is the same as cutting isinglass-stone.

It’s pretty tasty grilled on the pan as fish-in-chips. It’s meat is not like fish meat, more like turkey. This guys on Youtube said , it’s closer to the gator (I have never tried a gator, so I can just trust them).

Stellar – a new crypto-currency to replace Bitcoin. You can get some for free.

Twitter_avatar-150x150

Stellar is a decentralized protocol for sending and receiving money in any pair of currencies. This means users can, for example, send a transaction from their Yen balance and have it arrive in Euros, Yen, or even bitcoin. We’re expecting to support the usual categories of transactions: payments to a merchant, remittances back home, or rent splits with a roommate.

You can hold a balance with a gateway, which is any network participant you trust to accept a deposit in exchange for credit on the network. Stellar also comes with a built-in digital currency, referred to as the stellar, which we’re giving away for free. The currency will have value (as determined by the market); however, its primary function is providing a conversion path between other currencies.

We hope that people will build applications on top of Stellar to help bridge the gap between digital and traditional currencies.

By the way, they give you 600 Stellars for free, when you register.

Also, you make first training transaction in amount of 100 Stellars, and they return this amount back to you.
So, if you will be looking for a good name to send training 100, mvkozyrev will be a good name :))
