New article is published

Today I have got reference to our new article in Optical Memory & Neural Networks journal. The article clearly describes the process of multi-dimensional binary optimization using Hopfield and Domain models of neural networks. The equations which establishes the relationship between the deepness of local minimum and the probability of its finding is also provided. I can send PDF to anyone who is interesting in this.

Today I’m going to Makhachkala…

…to see my wife and little daughter. I miss them so much. I could extend this weekend until Thursday, so I'll be there until Wednesday, inshaAllah.

The flight is at 14.30. I need to prepare.

Getting connection string from app.config in .NET 2.0

Suppose, we have following app.config file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<add name="DBConnectionString" connectionString="CONNECT TO SOME SQL SERVER"/>
In new scheme, used in .NET 2.0 we need to use ConfigurationManager class like follows:
System.Configuration.Configuration config =    ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(ConfigurationUserLevel.None);
string stringToConnectoToMyDB = config.ConnectionStrings.ConnectionStrings[1].ToString();

Here is great Ajax .NET library from Michael Schwarz
It is realy simple to use it in your ASP.NET applications:

Today I'm going to examine the analogous library from Microsoft :)

Will see which one is better :)
