“The numbers 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, and 999 are all evenly divisible by 37, leaving no remainder.” (via @pickover) Using base 10 notation, a three-digit number, say $aaa$, can be written as $100\cdots a + 10\cdot a + a = a \cdot (100 + 10 + 1) = a \cdot 111$. Clearly, 111 is a divisor of $aaa$ ($111 = 37\times 3$), but also of 222, 333, … Hence, all three-digit numbers that are multiple of 111 will fit the bill.

Welcome to season 2 of The Killing! Also, I just had to reboot my Macbook–Mojave upgrade–after 37 days uptime with the same Emacs running in the background.

I discover Katie Melua years ago thanks to my aunt, and now I also happen to read a nice book, thanks to her again.

Remember that paper from 2012 on Julia as a Fast Dynamic Language for Technical Computing? Now, Julia 0.6.2 is extensively described in this recent article: Julia: Dynamism and Performance Reconciled by Design (PDF). Interestingly, Julia relies on at least 6 different PLs. #julia

A few months ago I read an interesting post by Tom MacWright on the raise and fall (and raise again) of AI. Now, I came across the following thread that sounds like we also need to consider RL, which I learned about twenty years ago. Go figure.

Yet another alternative to mangaging Hugo posts via Org: Blogging with org-mode and ox-hugo. #emacs

If this post appears on the micro section, then my configuration for ox-hugo should be ok. #emacs

TIL Spacemacs now supports Doom modeline (or check Doom Emacs); just add dotspacemacs-mode-line-theme 'doom to your dotspacemacs/layers. Better to use it with doom-themes, though. Next, org-journal is available in a dedicated layer on Spacemacs. Great! But wait, it is already supported by the org-layer. How come I didn’t know that! RTFM. #emacs

Models of Computation is just everything about various algorithms in a single PDF. As this this is around 1250 pages long, you’ll probably have to do some scheduling.

Just spent a good time with amazing labyrinths!

The Carbon Design System looks interesting for graphic and web design. (Carbon is the IBM Design System for digital products).
