Maine Root Sarsaparilla
Well defined licorice tone, otherwise nice and mellow. Would definitely recommend to others, but not to my taste.
Just another WordPress site
Not so much an organized report, rather a random sampling of small adventures.
This week has been a week of learning. And failures. Lots of failures.
The /r/kerbalspaceprogram subreddit holds a weekly Kerbal Space Program challenge. This week challenge, “Fall with style,” is to rescue a Kerbal that’s gone EVA on a suborbital trajectory — without reentering a vehicle.
Here are my results:
It took me quite a number of tries, but I’ve finally made it to Mün, Kerbin’s moon, and back again. The entire crew survived, though perhaps a bit shaken up:
I’m having *way* too much fun with an pre-release game, Kerbal Space Program. If you’ve ever played something like Microsoft Space Simulator … it’s nothing like that .
Every programmer has it… you know how there’s that one day every couple weeks where nothing works and all your ideas are bad? It’s no more than 5% of your time. In a team of five, you don’t even have 1/4 of a programmer worth of bad ideas, so there’s no power there.
Imagine a floor of 1,000 cubicles.
Even assuming ideal circumstances, statistics would suggest you find, at any given moment, at least 50 people running around generating bad ideas, breaking everything. Fifty — that’s a small army of WTF. There’s just too many of them to fight alone. You need to organize. You need something to slow them down. You do the reasonable thing and create some checks and balances to keep the situation from getting out of control. I mean, we all have our moments.
Congratulations on your new bureaucracy. May it serve you well.
Return again, and take any 5 people from that floor. At most, you’ve got about one toddler worth of trouble. You don’t even need the five. Any one person can keep that toddler in check.
I don’t think this is really how it works, but I put it forward for consideration nonetheless. 🙂
Minimality, Expressive power, Performance. Pick two?
A little Python snippet, good for a diversion. I couldn’t fit it into a tweet though:
s=;op=dict((o,eval('lambda a,b:b%sa'%o)) for o in '+-*/%') while not any(s.append(op[w](s.pop(),s.pop())if w in op else float(w)) for w in raw_input().split()): print '=',s[-1]
Just a simple 4-function RPN calculator, accepting input from console:
1 = 1.0 2 2 + = 4.0 1 2 - = -1.0 2 3 * 1 + = 7.0 2 3 1 * + = 5.0
