Sliding Window

I been reading, watching videos and experimenting with the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and cpp/WinRT most of the day. On this final block I decided to take a break and make a post in my blog. I want to get some software done before the end of the day this Wednesday. Will let you know if I meet the deadline.

I noticed in my Gmail that JAVAAID had posted a video on YouTube titled “Sliding Windows Technique”. It called my attention because the Rabin-Karp algorithm is based on a sliding window technique.  In the past few months I wrote a post on the subject and named it “Rabin-Karp Algorithm” (not too creative on my part).

Find Damaged – Part II

As I mentioned my previous post, my wife and I went to visit for the first time my son and family after his move from Indiana to Wisconsin. It used to be about 10 hours by car and about two hours by plane. The latter did not include the time from home to the airport, the wait at the airport, picking up luggage in the Indianapolis airport, and driving about an hour to his previous residence. Taking that into account if we fly to Madison, WI it would probably be a wash driving versus flying.

His new place is in a very nice development. The weather was hot and muggy. We walked the dog twice. We have to feed the Fitbit. The guest room is a lot nicer than the one in the previous house. The actual bed was firmer. For some reason or another I was not able to sleep well. Woke up on Sunday morning at 01:37 AM and did not go back to sleep until around 04:30 AM.
