Cycling If you are asking for nice cycling tours between "Cap Nègre" and "Fort de Brégançon" (Var - France), please contact me. I can make special arrangements for you (thanks to Michel) in order to pass along "Col du Babaou", close to "Collobrières" village. If you are looking for tours in the Var region, please follow this link .
I also share my experience of cycling in "Bois de Vincennes" (Paris) until Créteil and "bords de Marne". Don't hesitate to contact me on this matter.
Engineering and cultural aspects Please, accept the reading of this text on "Data hosting". It is an educational book on many issues in data hosting, including risk analysis, ethical and legal issues, preservation. The ecosystems of cloud computing as well as big data are also introduced.
The book is in french but a translation is in progress. Enjoy!
For an introduction on Cloud adoption in the educational sector, please refer to this collective effort: Guidelines to improve the use of Cloud Computing Technology in Education in Arab Countries for ALECSO and ITU.
Supercomputing Underground Culture The often-quoted Linpack benchmark typically runs at 75 percent of a supercomputer’s peak, says Dongarra. "Our dirty little secret is that most real applications are like 3 percent." (IEEE Spectrum, Jan 6, 2018)
En Saône-et-Loire, sur les traces des premiers jeux vidéo français They are called Bertrand, Claude, Jacques or Viviane. These are the forgotten actors of an unknown time, the one where Chalon-sur-Saône surfered the wave of Space Invaders, Pac-Man and Co. - the great cultural revolution of the 80s. Learn more about this little history that we now call "French touch" :-)
