The puzzle The participation rules First of all, many thanks to the participants, all the people who are interested and I apologize for the delay of result delivery. A lot of things has happened in my life during last several months. My daily job has very little to do with Java or Rete-based rule engines […]

Any constructive critics and/or comments are most welcome. Please write to email@example.com. Thanks! Days ago I passed the theoretical […]
Last week Dirk attended the 15th ACM Multimedia Conference in Augsburg. I went with him and was in some sessions too. The complete program can be found here. I’m going to blog what I’ve seen and experienced in the open programs. This blog entry might be updated in the future. Some pictures I took during […]
The original puzzle Participation Rules The rule in the first sentence of the old man is obvious. The mathematician cannot decide the solution after he was told the second condition. This indicates that there are more than one triple of numbers whose products are 36 and sums are the same. The third condition tells that […]
Drools Puzzles is a periodic puzzle-solving contest. Anybody can compete in a round except the puzzle poster himself. For now a problem-solving cycle is about 2 weeks. Puzzles are posted by the winner of last round. A participator can post her solution to mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org All solutions are evaluated after the deadline of a round, on […]
This time Microsoft Research is bringing up something marvelously cool. Their new Surface Computing concept and technology is truly world-changing and I see the future has arrived. First of all, my high respect and admiration to the computer scientists and software engineers at Microsoft Research. I was so thrilled after watching these two videos: The […]
I am running into an approximate string matching(aka fuzzy string matching, inexact string matching) problem on my Diplomarbeit. Dirk showed me some papers on this topic and coded a tiny c++ program for me to learn. I got the idea and coded a Java Approximate String Matching demo based on the algorithm described by Boy […]
Sniff: There is this entry on TheServerSide.com. Ach the long and boring talk again. He said ORM is the Vietnam of computer science. But sorry I do not think it is suitable to consider ORM as of computer science. It is more a engineering technology based upon experience and best practice. It is a tool […]
Sniff What’s wrong with this line of code? I got this story form Google China’s official blog. The original post was written by an engineer working at Google China (Mr. Fang Kun) and it was written in Chinese. I’m summarizing it in English. Mr. Fang Kun was recruiting students for Google China. The recruit was […]
