Friday Funny: Solutions to Impossible Numeric Puzzles, 6 The Hard Way and The Four 4’s

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAs promised when I posted the recent maths related Friday Funny articles, I would credit the source of the puzzles (at least where I found them).

The reason, I waited until after posting all 3 of the puzzles was that once you know where the site was, you would probably have found the puzzles and their solutions.

The puzzles were found as videos on the Scam School YouTube channel with Brian Brushwood. So below are the videos.

The HARDEST Puzzle Yet! (direct link)

 

The HARDEST Puzzle… Part 2! (direct link)

 

Note that there are other solutions possible to some of the puzzles, these are not the only solutions.

Enjoy

David

PS: As a non-drinker I don’t really condone the use of these puzzles to get frinks (free drinks).

#MSCONNECT GP – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Documentation

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the third in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the lack of updated documentation for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, submitted by Vaidy Mohan.

Ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 the documentation available for the product has been becoming scarcer. With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 there were 96 files installed into the documentation folder.

From Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 onwards there have been only 15 files in the folder and those have barely been updated for the GP 2015 and GP 2016 releases. If you open the pdf manuals, they mostly refer to GP 2013.

Updates for the documentation for Dexterity and the Dexterity help file as well as the SDK documentation has been lacking in the last releases.

I know that keeping the documentation up to date requires time and resources, but it is a valuable part of any software product, especially something as large and complex and Microsoft Dynamics GP.

So if you want the documentation kept up to date with the software, please vote using the links below.

Click on the link below:

Here is the URL for the link

Note: If the link does not work for you, go to https://connect.microsoft.com/directory/ and sign in with your Microsoft Account (MSA) and then find Microsoft Dynamics – Microsoft Dynamics GP in the list and click Join. Then try the links above again.Thanks

Friday Funny: Magnets, Marbles and Dominoes

David Meego - Click for blog homepageA friend of mine posted the first video in this article on the Book of Face last week and I wanted to share it because it is really clever.

The video takes the traditional domino toppling idea and turns it on its head with Marbominoes using marbles, ball bearings and magnets. The creator, Kaplamino, shows many different techniques and keeps you asking “What’s next?”.

At the time of posting this article the video has almost two and half million hits.

Magnets and Marbles! (direct link)

 

Here is another video from last year using dominoes that also is worth watching.

Friday Funny: This Is Why You Shouldn’t Interrupt a Programmer

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is for everyone who works with or lives with a software developer.

My wife has long since learnt to leave me alone when I am in programming mode, even when I walk away from the computer to grab a drink or remember to eat (5 hours after meal time). She does not like being groaned at when she makes me lose my “train of thought”.

As most developers would understand, when you are working on solving a problem, working out a new technique or solving a complex bug, your brain is busy processing many possible solutions and discarding the ones that don’t work. Eventually it will find a working solution. All this thinking is happening too fast to write anything down, so please don’t interrupt us just because we are not typing on the keyboard.

This comic strip from Jason Heeris sums it up.

Here is the link to Jason’s site:

David

PS: Never suggest to a developer that it is late and they should go to bed and work on it again in the morning. You will be likely to get yelled at.

PPS: Then again, when a developer is not actually working, it is safe to make a suggestion to them in the evening. They will often have a solution by the morning…. and sometimes get up in the middle of the night to code it.

Friday Funny: Dilbert – The Knack “The Curse of the Engineer”

David Meego - Click for blog homepageMany years ago (in fact, in September 1999 … I found the file in my archives), I heard a very funny wave file (remember .wav, that was before .mp3 was common) called “The Knack”. It was about a mother taking their child, Dilbert, to the doctor because “he’s not like other kids”.

Well, I was recently sent a link to the actual video clip that the sound file came from and yes it was from the cartoon, Dilbert by Scott Adams.

Here is the video for you to enjoy:

Hololens Holoportation: Virtual 3D Teleportation in Real-time

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhile we are highlighting videos of really cool technology from Microsoft, a video on Hololens Holoportation was recently published and it also shows amazing possibilities.

Microsoft Research have taken the three dimensional camera technology to capture people and objects in an environment and combined this with the Augmented Reality ability of the Microsoft Hololens to display the captured virtual people and objects in your field of view at a remote location.

This concept looks very much like the communications holograms we have seen in the Star Wars movies… but now for real and not blue monochrome and fuzzy.
