Re: Portal 2

Someone at another forum posted something interesting involving Wheatley's name (which contains ending spoilers): You know how Chell walks into a wheat field at the end? You know how Wheatly's name was Wheatly? Well, what is Wheatly composed of? Wheat + LY. THE WHEAT IS A LIE!!! ...also wheat m...

Re: does elegance imply simplicity?

I'm instantly thinking "code". Elegant code to me is simple in the sense that it's minimal. Like using a higher order function or construct just because it shaves off a few lines, solves the problem more snugly. :) By this measure however the instant counterbalance to elegance is complexit...

Re: Long IMDB Movie List by Genre

Well, personally I thought that the joke with the pen was hilarious. But again, there's an imperfection in Genre parsing, that can lead to false attributions of Genre to an undeserving movie. That's how the data is provided, and it's not my fault. :oops: Meanwhile, some friends of mine put egg on my...

Long IMDB Movie List by Genre

I wish IMDB had an API, so that when I'm looking for a movie to download (yarr!), I could punch those numbers. Apparently IMDB does provide some kind of data-dumps, and they are free to download in crippled data-files from http://www.imdb.com/interfaces . I say crippled, because these files are not ...

Re: A cooperative hierarchical RTS: could it work?

I love the concept. In my mind it could stretch out from FPS to RTS, with various stages of abstractions for higher tier commanders. I.e. larger scale than the op suggested, with many more players. I'm just going to mash some ideas in... But for not let's imagine Crysis-1 level of openness, and star...

Re: The Hurt Locker

I thought it was a very solid movie even if it wasn't what I would consider consistent, at the very least it was a refreshing take on warfare. Now, the combat scenes might have been stupid at times, but I think this is to be expected out of any film without field expertise. But there were some extr...

Re: Portal 2

I love the game. Not for the puzzle, but for the jokes. For some reason I thought that Wheatley was voiced by Ricky Gervais (disillusioned by reading through last few pages and not finding "Oh me yarm Ricky!" posts). Guess it's a bit racism there - to me all Brits sound alike. I finished t...

Graph Theory Software

I'm looking for software to help me explore graph theory, and export images to popular formats (pdf, eps) so that I can present my solutions. So far I've had little luck. There's a graph visualizing utility within Mathematica, but it's not very intuitive. I've tried searching for software and didn't...

Archimedian Property, Proof of (aka Axiom of Archimedes)

Starting a course in analysis, we were given a semiformal proof of the archimedian property. The same proof (sorta....) can be found at Wikipedia . After \mathbb{R} was defined as a commutative ring with a multiplicative inverse, the Archimedian Property was stated as follows. Given a, b \in \mathbb...

Engineers are still mathematicians, you know...

I think you just simultaneously offended both engineers and mathematicians.


Nice, I killed two birds with one stone.


And now you've offended birds.

Re: Looking for a Group

Thanks eta! That gives me just the type of group I wanted! It's worth noting that property 3a isn't equivalent to being torsion. Ah, yes, I forgot the "finite index" part. So out of curiosity, what are you going to do with this group? Bet : He'll submit it to his professor for points! You...

Re: puzzle

We have this discussion every time someone posts a sequence. Even though it's unlike 0.999... = 1, or Plane on a Treadmill, which both have definite answers, I still think there should be a thread dedicated to talking about the validity of sequence problems, to avoid all these threads getting sidet...

Re: puzzle

No, sorry, this is a stupid question with no right answer. This has been annoying me with IQ-tests as well, seems like every joe dick and harry is such a smart ass when they come up with "the right way", when everyone knows that every finite sequence is a polynomial. The author of the prob...
