Simulated annealing is a computational algorithm for optimization. It mimics the physical process of thermal annealing in which a metal is heated and then slowly cooled to settle into a highly ordered crystal structure. For common metals, the lowest energy state is already known. But the method is useful for other problems where the best state is not known and exhaustively searching all possible states is impractical. The method is applied by modeling the problem as a physical system with structure, energy, and temperature. This Python module implements simulated annealing so that it can be easily applied to a variety of problems. An example program is include to perform simulated annealing of the traveling salesman problem.
The Qore "tibae" module provides TIBCO Adapter support; it allows Qore programs to send and receive messages to and from TIBCO Adapters (or implement a TIBCO Adapter in qore) based on an external repository. This module provides the TibcoAdapter class and associated constants and helper functions. Note that in order to build and use this module you must have a licensed version of the TIBCO SDK from TIBCO, Inc (i.e. it depends on non-free software).
The Qore "tibrv" module provides direct TIBCO Rendezvous support, allowing Qore programs to send and receive Rendezvous messages directly. Note that to use this software, you must have a licensed version of TIBCO Rendezvous from TIBCO, Inc (so this module depends on non-free software).
JoomlaWatch allows you to watch your Web site visitors and bots in real-time from the administration menu, particularly their IP addresses, countries they come from, geographical location on a map, which pages they are viewing, and their browser and operating system. It creates daily and all-time stats from this information plus unique, pageload, and total hits statistics. Furthermore, you can block harmful IP addresses, see blocked attempts stats, evaluate the trend charts, and create goals based on many parameters. In the frontend, it can show the top countries, user, and visit information for certain periods of time.
WeShare Mobile is a software component for the iPhone which allows content such as images, links, text excerpts, or comments to be easily published on social media platforms. WeShare Mobile is easily configurable and can be quickly and inexpensively expanded to include any existing service by simply writing a plug-in. Currently, WeShare Mobile for iPhone includes plug-ins for Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, and e-mail, as well as a demo app.
