What's New - September, 2006
September 29, 2006:
BugTimeTrials evolved from a
vehicle simulation experiment. When my prototype vehicle looked more
like a ladybug, I decided to make a course and run time trials.
You can too.
September 23, 2006: I posted a program to answer a viewer's "Card Probability Question" today.. The question: What is the probability of one or more occurrences of two given card rank values being adjacent or with only one intervening card in a well shuffled standard 52 card deck? The program answers the question experimentally, I'll let one of you viewers send me the analytical solution.
September 12, 2006:
Back to work. Here's a little program , "Monitor Off" that blanks the screen when the "Pause" key is pressed within any running program. I use it to turn off the weather display on my "Weather" laptop before going to bed in the evening. The weather program continues to collect data overnight. A mouse wiggle in the morning restores the screen. It uses a Windows facility called Global Key Hook which allows checking every key press. I couldn't decide whether it was a "Utility" or a "Delphi-Technique", so it appears in both indices.
September 11, 2006: We are almost back in business after being down for a week. The old host had moved the web site to a new server which broke it and they did not seem able to get it fixed. We are up today on a new host so we'll see how it goes. Please use the feedback link to let me know if you see things that look strange or broken. Note: The Booksearch site requires a small update for each school which I will be doing today.
