Number of Islands – Java

Last evening before going to bed, I left a window in the kitchen opened just a crack. The temperature was forecasted to drop down to 37F, so I hopped it was going to be fine.

A few minutes past midnight I woke up. It felt somewhat chilly. I closed the window and checked the temperature in the upper level zone. It was at 68F which is at what we keep it during the winter months. I turned on the heat in the zone and went back to bed. During the rest of the night I heard the furnace kick in a couple times.

During breakfast my wife asked if windows were closed and the furnace was on. I told her about my midnight adventure. We agreed on leaving windows closed from now on until next spring. The system at home has an air exchange unit so it makes sense to keep the windows closed and the temperature at 68F. Continue reading “Number of Islands – Java”

Definitely the weather is changing in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Last night my wife and I slept with a windows in the kitchen opened just a crack. This morning the upstairs temperature was at 69F. During winter we keep the upstairs at 68F. Chances are that this evening will sleep with the windows closed and the heater on.

I need to update my post previous post Count Negative Numbers in a Sorted Matrix. I made an incorrect statement and would like to generate an update. If you are curios, I left the body of the post as it was. I generated an opening note. Continue reading “Reverse Only Letters”

Maximum Depth of a Binary Tree

Good morning. Hope your day has started on the right note. A couple weeks ago, the extended weather forecast for the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul had the high temperatures in the low 60’s and 70’s. This week we have experienced high temperatures in the mid 80’s. It seems that with the power of the cloud, large models that make use of AI, and tons of data, accuracy predicting the weather is still out of our reach.

I have a lifetime friend. Our friendship started in elementary school. Now with the COVID-19 (or Chinese flu) pandemic we connect using Skype on Friday at 07:00 AM. By 08:00 AM we both start or work day. Continue reading “Maximum Depth of a Binary Tree”

Debugging React Applications

The temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in the past couple days has dropped a few degrees. We just started the month of August which should be midsummer. My wife always says that around the birthday of one of our sons (which is around mid March) fall arrives. I do just do not want to believe that summer is almost over. To tell you the truth, COVID-19 has not helped and to top it off this year the Minnesota State Fair has been cancelled. The fair is what marks the end of summer around here.
