Re: Pentacles

Or am i just going in circles?? It is clear that you were still going around in the same old circles you always do. And it seems this time you only received a 1 month ban. If you are wise you will find a school math text book and take a month to study an introduction to algebra. Then you could reco...

Re: Pentacles

When Albert writes and runs a line of code, he is arithmetically manipulating the numbers in the named containers. But a mathematician would process the symbolic algebraic equation, and immediately see the result. That explains the riddle of; A = B * A / B. To Albert that is a statement of simple ar...

Re: Pentacles

I'd plead more tolerance, sometimes sounds a bit like witch hunt. I believe we are remarkably tolerant. The science of data compression is defined by the mathematics of information. Albert does not understand the concept of high school algebra, and so cannot explain why A = B * A / B. One can have ...

Re: Pentacles

@albert. I would strongly suggest that you do not discuss your attempts at data compression in this thread, or on this website. We cannot help you with your data compression dreams. If you want to investigate data compression you need to do it somewhere else, or a moderator is going to have to decid...

Re: Pentacles

Welcome back Albert.
All you need now is a supply of free compressed air.
A trompe is a water-powered air compressor, commonly used before the advent of the electric-powered compressor.

Re: snow demo

You might think about at least 3 snow flake sizes to give it some depth. In my example the "closer" snowflakes are bigger and fall slower. Because of perspective, closer flakes will be bigger but cross the screen quickly, while distant flakes will be single pixels that appear to fall very...

Re: Pentacles

Richard. Do you use an editor to draw the fonts, it must have been a lot of work. They would be very handy for games coders. The reverse engineered stroke table is from my cloned PCB layout code. I wrote this short converter code. It makes the initialisation array. A little bit of editing followed ...

Re: Pentacles

Your graphics says it all. On Oct 20, 2020, Albert was banned for off topic posting, until 31 Dec 2020.
The admins tired of all the reports they had to handle regarding Albert's posts unrelated to FB.
He now has time to find a more appropriate forum. Or if he returns, to change his approach.

Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

Very interesting. I wonder how you came to that. It was interesting... I expected the lower bound would be a Log(x) function to some specific base. So I looked at the points falling below a trial bound of; y = 2 * Log2( x ) The reasoning was; If my Log() hypothesis was correct then; Applying the ch...

Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

If we represent the sum of the prime factors of x by; y = Spf( x ) The rays on the diagram follow straight lines; y = Spf( a ) + x / a For prime values of a this generates points on the line; y = a + x / a Those lines are tangent to the line y = 2 + Sqr( x ) Notice that slopes and y-intercepts diffe...

Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

I think sum=2+(P/2) is missing from your factorisation. Somewhat butchered. Now includes all factors and primes. Dim prime( 1 To 12 ) As Short = { 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37 } Dim As Short primes = 12, n = prime( primes )^2 Dim As Short i, residue, sum, f_count, p_index, max ' setup ...
