Dynamic programming

After three lectures on it I can safely admit didn't get dynamic programming, not at all, not one bit.

Luckily there seems to be a lot of material around, so I could do what prof Skiena suggested in one of the lectures suggested, which is to study as many examples on dynamic programming as possible, to get a better understanding of it.

I've found a few links that seem to be good, I will stop the CSE373 until I get a better grasp on the argument, here they are:

It's more links than I am comfortable with, it will halt CSE373 for quite a while, but I think it's crucial.

Ubuntu 16.10 daily crash

No progress here, I still don't know what caused the problem, I've opened a question on askubuntu hopefully I will get some hints from there.

Meanwhile the crash happened a couple more times, I've tried to restart using ALT + SysRq + B without success, it seems no input gets through, I also gave a look at common logs files but without knowing what to look for it's difficult to isolate the bit that tells you about the problem.

I just gave another try to the hunch that this was all avahi-demon's fault, so I did:

$ sudo systemctl disable avahi-daemon
$ /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon stop 
$ /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon status

With the last command returning an inactive state for the daemon, which wasn't happening when I was doing avahi-demon -k (I discovered this later on).
