Friday Funny: Another puzzle for you to solve

David Meego - Click for blog homepageAfter last week’s puzzle, I came across something a little harder that has been keeping people awake at night.

Singaporean high-school students were presented with this logic problem in the Singapore and Asian Schools Math Olympiad test paper last week. The test is aimed at the top 40 per cent of students in one of the most mathematically gifted countries in the world.

Here is the question:

Albert and Bernard just become friends with Cheryl, and they want to know when her birthday is. Cheryl gives them a list of 10 possible dates.

  • May 15,         May 16,        May 19,
  • June 17,        June 18,
  • July 14,         July 16,
  • August 14,    August 15,    August 17.

Cheryl then tells Albert and Bernard separately the month and the day of her birthday respectively.

Albert: I don’t know when Cheryl’s birthday is, but I know that Bernard does not know too.

Bernard: At first I don’t know when Cheryl’s birthday is, but I know now.

Albert: Then I also know when Cheryl’s birthday is.

So when is Cheryl’s birthday?

 

Can you work out the solution?  No cheating. No looking up the answer until you have worked out a solution of your own.

 

For more information see these articles from the Sydney Morning Herald:

Please don’t post the answer in the comments, just let me know how you went with the puzzle.

Enjoy

Diagnostics in Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online

Hi folks, Did you know the fact that you can run the diagnostics within Microsoft Dynamics CRM online? All you have to do is change the URL of your CRM application and append with /tools/diagnostics/diag.aspx. For ex: If this is your URL: https://orgname.crm.dynamics.com/ You can check the diagnostics by this URL: https://orgname.crm.dynamics.com/tools/diagnostics/diag.aspx This will give you the data point and its respective status and results summary

Friday Funny: Can you solve this simple puzzle

David Meego - Click for blog homepageRecently a puzzle has been doing the rounds on the Book of Face and I thought it would be good to test how quickly my readers could solve it. It is probably an oldie, but it is a goodie.

The puzzle is the Car Park Puzzle where you have to work out the missing number for the bay where the car is.

Can you work out the missing number in the sequence 16, 06, 68, 88, X, 98?

Please don’t post the answer in the comments, just let me know how long it took you to solve the puzzle.

Have Fun.

David

PS: I might post the answer at some time in the future…. or I may not. :-)

Visual Studio Integration Toolkit replaces Menus for Visual Studio Tools

David Meego - Click for blog homepageGreat news for Visual Studio developers.

Winthrop Development Consultants are pleased to announce the release of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT).

The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit replaces Menus for Visual Studio Tools and is now available for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 (including GP 2013 R2) and also for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015.

The new name is to reflect the change of ownership as well as the future of the tool where its functionality will be extended to provide access to other “Dexterity only” integration features and not just the current menu navigation.

However, to maintain compatibility with existing installations and projects, the file and object names have not been changed.

The new product releases replace the existing code for GP 2010 and GP 2013 as well as adding the long awaited version for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015.

Note: The original code for Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 is also available, if needed.

Thank you for your patience as the agreement with Microsoft was reached and then the updated code and documentation was developed.

Important: When installing the new code on a system which already has the existing code, you will be asked to restart Microsoft Dynamics GP to complete the renaming of the product. You will also need to remove and re-add your reference to the Application.MenusForVisualStudioTools.dll assembly in your Visual Studio projects.

For more information please see the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit Portal page:

More information on the additional functionality being added to the registered version will be posted on this blog, so watch this space.

Please post comments and feedback.

David

Kinect 2 Tutorial on Tracking Strategies

Microsoft has published a set of great tutorials for making applications with Kinect 2. http://kinect.github.io/tutorial/ These detailed hands on Lab/Tutorials for V2 were published last month.

I highly recommend the tutorial on tracking strategies – for keeping the application accurate when multiple people are in the room.

http://kinect.github.io/tutorial/lab14/index.html

This lab will explain the following:

Tracking a user who is the first to be seen.
Tracking the user who is the closest to the Kinect 2.
Tracking a user who is the most active in the scene.
Tracking several people simultaneously.
