Unfinished creative work?

Two months of this summer have passed by very fast. It is the end of my Summer of HPC project and thus the end of my adventure in Scotland. However, is it the end of this project for sure? I’m

The World of 3D Web Visualisation

The summer in Italy is not seeming to end but my stay here does. In my last post I showcased my work which was by that time almost done. From then, the looks didn’t change much, only the underlying stuff

The end, or just another beginning?

As summer ends, I can’t help but rememb Jim Morrison (The Doors) singing “this is the end, my only friend, the end…”. This post also represents an end. It is the end of my Summer of HPC project and hence

Climbing higher everyday

During this summer I’m trying to get a little better every day. As a hiking enthusiast, I really love to get on track during weekends. Scottish Highlands paths seem to be slightly worse maintained and much less congested than Tatra Mountains

Which is the busiest node in the HPC cluster

What is a high-performance computer (HPC)? In simple terms, nowadays it is a cluster of innumerous ‘mini’ computers (nodes) interlinked by the same network. When a big calculation is submitted to the HPC, it will be fragmented into thousands of

The triple P conundrum

Pasta, pizza and ParaView are the topics I want to talk about in this post. As a Catalan guy, I’m used to the Mediterranean diet and it is impossible for me not to talk about food when staying in Italy.
