Exposition about CERN and the LHC

My blog readers are probably discovered that I'm finished the blogging about the LHC. Yeah, it's broken, and they are fixing it at least for next spring. Nothing happens. My Google alert is reporting the same news on every day.
Here in Novi Sad, the Faculty of Science never sleeps! :) Some Students from The Department of Physics made an interesting exposition about CERN and the LHC. We heard a lot of new things and I saw some exclusive pictures about the collider, because one of our students was there together with a couple of another students from other countries.

Microsoft Sinegija 2008 - Novi Sad

I haven't blogged since September. There is a lot of things what I have to say (write).
So, at last week I was on the Microsoft Sinergija 2008 in Novi Sad. Motto of this year was: “Where IT all comes together.” :) The program was very interesting, and it contained presentations boot for users, and programmers. Performers on the last day:
Cluster team from Kragujevac – Serbia. They was last year in Egypt on the final competition of Imagine Cup. Their application (FEAT) is based on social platform (Facebook). With this application you can report ecological event in your environment. They made also a markup language, EcoML and a Facebook addon for reporting these events. You can see more pictures in my Picasa gallery about their presentation.

SMOR team from Serbia. They win the Serbian final on Imagine Cup twice in a row. With their applications LightsON and DriveON. DriveON is a car/traffic simulator program.. Driving experience is close to the realty. They made it with 6 projectors, some DirectX, C# and other stuff. It was very impressive.

Project Gemini. Also from Serbia. Project Gemini is an addon for Microsoft Excel. The core of this application is the SharePoint. It is a big server with 1/2TB memory, with a hundreds of processors for servicing users. Once if the user is connected to this SharePoint he can download a huge sized databases within a 4-5 seconds. They are using very extreme and fast compression. I never saw this before. On a laptop they are retrieved one table from some database with rows within these 4-5 seconds. Yeah, It sounds impossible. :)
After these great presentations we have some dinner down in the Hall, ...and I've got a Microsoft badge yey! :)

The summer has been ended. I have a lot of fun with my friends & family, with my project, with openSUSE and KDE, thanks for everyone. From October 6.
I'm starting with the second year on my faculty, and I have only one exam left from the first year, yey! This year (mostly summer) was full with tech/science related events. First of all, the Large Hadron Collider, and his shut down after two weeks from the the first start...
I'm very happy to see, that KDE community is growing with every single day, together with openSUSE community. My project is heading forward too, after my summer exams I'm improved it a little bit, implemented some new features, fixed some bugs, etc, etc. If anyone interested in database-browsing with Java style, then visit the projects site: http://yami.googlecode.com/. The new Slipknot album All Hope Is Gone is out, and I'm very satisfied with, that's the music what I need ;).
Tomorrow I'll move to my second city Novi Sad, to start my studies. I hope, my second year on the faculty will be great, as this summer was. Thanks for all readers and visitor for following my blog, next time I'll be back with some tech related. :)
