“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.

Season 1 of The Killing is over. Hopefully, the next season is about to start.

Katie Melua, *Ultimate Collection*.

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

*Manuel d’analyse spatiale: Théorie et mise en oeuvre pratique avec R* (Insee
Méthodes n° 131, octobre 2018). Be aware this is a 400-page long PDF file (28
Mo), so plan accordingly. (h/t @freakonometrics) `#rstats`

`#fr`

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`

How Lisp Became God’s Own Programming Language: Interesting overview of Lisp
development and why the language itself continues to fascinate people. `#lisp`

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.

Here we are: We just started watching The Wire, Season 1.

We are done with Prison Break, Season 5.

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`

Just about to end Season 1 of The Killing.

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!

So far, so good. I haven’t restart Emacs in a long time now.

Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine, *40 ans de chansons*. I also bought the vinyl record as soon as it got out.

Some computer algebra algorithms in Haskell.

An overview of gradient descent algorithms. Available on arXiv too.

Category Theory for Programmers has been updated.

Starting soon: Prison Break, Season 5. It’s holidays time!

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