# Thread: Pavement and Floor Carpets

1. ## Pavement and Floor Carpets

As I was walking on the pavement of the Hall of Fame, THE SECOND TIME (doing things twice),
to the international conference of mathematical computer sciences,
I wondered how many pavement stones would fit into a cat-walk of a given size.

When I went home to calculate this, behind my P.C. , I Projected this question to the
P.C.-Screen. That makes the question : how many WINDOWS (= Rectangles) could
fit on a (P.C.-) Screen, with a predefined size.

The following question is a challenge for the sister of Eugene Kaspersky, and all other
mathematical specialists (Bill Gates, for instance) :

GIVEN A SCREEN OF PREDEFINED SIZE, WITH A FEW (PARTIALLY OVERLAPPING)
WINDOWS (= Rectangles) ON IT, WHAT IS THE BEST SCREEN-LOCATION TO
PLACE A __NEW__ WINDOW ('BEST-FIT'), provided that the window-handle is
NOT lost by the windows API-32 enumeration function due to a popped-up
message-window, THAT IS, TO PLACE THE NEW_WINDOW ONTO THE SCREEN-
LOCATION WITH THE MAXIMUM 'EMPTY SPACE'.

Off course, in the old days of the I.B.M. D.O.S. operating system, this question was
not relevant at all, because of the primitivity of the operating system, and the
simple and small screens.
However, nowadays, this question becomes more and more relevant because of the
screens that grow bigger by day, and because of the fully graphical interface off course.

A special commision is doing a huge research on this moment if things works that way too
with the LINUX operating system used on PERSONAL COMPUTERS.
If so, then it will have huge consequenses for the near future..
most probably, an independent new system will be developed by another kind of mathematical
specialists. The old system will completely be BY-PASSED.

Holy cow, where the hell can I parc my car ?
