Walking Randomly through the web #2
Here’s some stuff that I found cool / useful / interesting while on my travels around the interweb. My previous random stroll can be found here.
Puzzles with a distinctive mathy-flavour
- A new twist on Latin Squares (Nope…it isn’t Sudoku)
Games that have nothing to do with maths at all
- The 20 worst video games of all time I’ve actually owned a couple of these :(
Take a laser and a computer and the world’s your mollusc
- Playing with Sticky light Ever imagined playing pong with a laser and the palm of your hand? Well imagine no more.
- Smart Laser Scanner for Human-Computer Interface A more serious discussion of the technology used in the previous link.
Python links that I’ve found useful
- Working with Python subprocesses – Shells, Processes, Streams, Pipes, Redirects and More. This helped me out with a project I’m working on right now.
On why failure is good for you and why we should all have the right to die
- Are you failing enough? Failure is good for you so don’t be afraid of it.
- I’ll die before the endgame Eloquent and moving essay on the right to die by my favorite author, Terry Pratchett
Do you want something featured in my next random walk of the web? Post a comment or email me and tell me what you’ve found or witten and why I (and others) should pay it a visit. Links that are about mathematics, science, software or gadgets are much more likely to get included.
