Twitter is not about technology, it's about people. We worked quickly to establish full SMS service in India with the largest operator because organic growth in the region has been unusually strong and there is huge potential for positive impact.

Our partnership with Bharti Airtel, the largest mobile operator in India, means a huge population of people can now send tweets at standard rates and receive tweets for free.

I'm just curious which student can afford for such expense.

Like this stats -


Be aware, JAVA_HOME variable might be misleading:

Instead you need to put path to exetutable files in front of PATH. Anyway I'm not going to waste more time on compiling this stuff. I have working copy on my desktop computer and I can update repository with my work from there.

I've talked with a lady in the dean's office. Deadline for receiving credit was 25 September, deadline for handing over credit books was also probably far beyond now, but noone bothers. There is nothing more frustrating than this kind of job.

It's a load of work:
Jesli chodzi o przedstawienie pracy - prosze przygotowac normalna dokumentacje projektowa, tj. koncepcja (schematy ideowe z komentarzem), projekt (diagramy uml) oraz opis implementacji (wzsystkie moduly/klasy opisane i skomentowane). Do tego bedzie potrzebna instrukcja uzytkownika (jak uruchomic/zmodyfikowac system). Trzeba bedzie rozszerzyc funkcjonalnosc zwiazana z wykresami (box and whiskers) udokumentowac to co jest i w koncu przeprowadzic merge do trunka.

I started from gnuplot - docs - demo script.
Five columns of data are required.
It means that computing must be performed before.

Sample data:
1 1.5 2 2.4 4 6.
2 1.5 3 3.5 4 5.5
3 4.5 5 5.5 6 6.5
4 3.7 4.5 5.0 5.5 6.1
5 3.1 3.5 4.2 5 6.1
6 1 4 5.0 6 9
7 4 4 4.8 6 6.1
8 4 5 5.1 6 6.1
9 1.5 2 2.4 3 3.5
10 2.7 3 3.5 4 4.3

Sample code:
set terminal png
set output "gnuplot_candle.png"

set boxwidth 0.2 absolute
set title "box-and-whisker with median bar and whiskerbars"
set rrange [ * : * ] noreverse nowriteback # (currently [8.98847e+307:-8.98847e+307] )
set trange [ * : * ] noreverse nowriteback # (currently [-5.00000:5.00000] )
set xrange [ 0.00000 : 11.0000 ] noreverse nowriteback
set x2range [ * : * ] noreverse nowriteback # (currently [0.00000:11.0000] )
set yrange [ 0.00000 : 10.0000 ] noreverse nowriteback
set y2range [ * : * ] noreverse nowriteback # (currently [0.00000:10.0000] )
set cbrange [ * : * ] noreverse nowriteback # (currently [8.98847e+307:-8.98847e+307] )
plot 'candlesticks.dat' using 1:3:2:6:5 with candlesticks lt 3 lw 2 title 'Quartiles' whiskerbars, '' using 1:4:4:4:4 with candlesticks lt -1 lw 2 notitle

Exmplanation of some settings:
lt - linetype
lw - linewidth
noreverse / nowriteback (xrange)
using (datastrings)

rational rhapsody

Trial download: Rational Rhapsody 7.5.0 (IBM):

Of course I've filled registration form but it is not enough:

Surprisingly the goal of the laboratories isn't creating working project but to get to know this software and methods of programming related to it. For me it sounds like do whatever want, in worst case you'll say that it's the software fault. Anyway I'm worried about upcoming semester at the university, right now is Friday evening and I don't even consider partying anywhere.

LOL, in one moment they earned very much in my eyes:
Dear Stefan,

previous transaction with us did not go through. We have fixed this

It's hard to be in touch with mgr inż. Witold Rakoczy:

Everyone knows it, everyone tells that you need to adapt or die. On Saturday I'm going to visit him, anyway it was funny when I found topic related to his behaviour:

matlab sucks

Laboratorium Metod Rozpoznawania Obrazow - - requires use of matlab.

Student version, you need to register and purchase:

There is no such thing as download at all:

Well, there is scilab but I'm not going to use software other than one used in the laboratory room. Downloading matlab sucks, can't imagine dealing with this stuff.

When looking for downloadable version this link might be useful - google search (pass: gapiozo).
