AAron Lee has written more games than I have? I need to catch up.
Aravind Krishnaswamy has some cool astronomy pictures, plus an awesome gallery of animations rendered using his R.I.S.E. software.
Dan Pollock runs an internet hosting business in his spare time. He really is someone who cares.
Kenji Toyooka has a stylish site full of art.
Chris Mennie has a bunch of cool projects that he is working on.
Hi, I have seen your investigation of devil's algorithm. And the pre-specified moves should cover the entire space. That is, only using R and U we may end up in an infinite loop (just an irrelevant thought :)). Also, If one can by somehow study the cube with one corner cubelet fixed, then, he/she can see how many rotations are required for each and every face color to attain its proper location. The Least Common Multiple of all these numbers will give exact rotations required for attaining the solution... <firstname.lastname@example.org> ---> A fan of all interesting mathematical objects.-- KaLee at 6:59am, Wednesday January 13, 2010 EST
Just a suggestion on the Pinhole lens that you created. If you have a spacer mount for your lens used for macro photography, that may move the pinhole out far enough to get a sharper image. I'm going to follow your great instructions and give this a try as well. Thanks! Carl-- Pinhole Lens suggestion... at 2:56am, Monday May 17, 2010 EST
What is the phenomenon just before sleep when you hear an electric humming in your brain? There is a very drugged like dizziness that I have to fight to resist. How I become aware is a sense of ominous presence in the room but tonight in particular it was outside the door of the room and outside the window. Is this sleep disorder? Could it be contagious to a dog picking up on my mental disorder? He is paceing right now and acting odd. I have this experience quite often and it concerns.-- Daniel at 5:31am, Friday September 30, 2011 EST
One more thing. I should give you my email in case I forget to check back. I suffer ADHD and this also might give you indication of something to answer. I hear this electronic sound even when awake but it is usually- I can't think of the word for it stealth? I also experience flashing lights. And sense or see darker than dark forms when waking in the night. Am I crazy? my email is email@example.com-- Daniel at 5:37am, Friday September 30, 2011 EST
My website is a strange place to ask this question, but anyway... what you are experiencing is quite common, and called "Sleep Paralysis". See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleep_paralysis for details. When I used to experience this, it manifested itself as if someone was drilling into the back of my neck. Not fun.-- Michael at 9:34am, Friday September 30, 2011 EST
Hello Your experience in Pinhole Lens is very interesting. I so try to make one pinhole lens for D7000 and take some shots for fun. Tank┤s-- CÚsar at 10:21am, Friday April 12, 2013 EST
Hello, I came across your investigation into the Devil's Algorithm in my search for an answer to a similar question of my own - What is the smallest set of algorithms that may be used to solve the cube, allowing for the cube to be orientated between each algorithm (e.g. change which faces are T,R,and F)? The answer to this is pretty trivial (any single rotation, then reorient the cube), but if the algorithms must not be trivial then things can be more entertaining. For example, here is a set of three standard algorithms that, with some thought, can be applied to solve a cube: (upper-case letters for clockwise rotation) Rotate 3 corners and swap 3 edges: tRTrTRTTrt Rotate 3 corners: RtlTrtLT Rotate 2 corners: rBRbrBRTrbRBrbRt Normally these are used after solving the first two layers and rotating the last layer's edges. Using just these three, I was able to solve a scrambled cube - albeit much slower than normal, but the thought process was more challenging than normal as I had to visualize the movement of the cubies a couple of steps ahead. constablebrew at google mail-- ConstableBrew at 6:12pm, Monday June 3, 2013 EST
Hi Mike: I liked your CPP calculator. Is there a way that you could use the calculator for the CPP death benefit calculation? I believe the principle is 6 months of the benefit that you are entitled to up to $2,500. There are also separate calcs if you are under 64 years old. http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/services/pensions/cpp/death-benefit.shtml. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
