Pentacles

Well, the thread Circles went around in circles, until it got dizzy, then Circles got squared. I am sure attempts to square the circle, by square programmers will continue. The Squares thread should logically progress to either Triangles or Pentagons, so how about triangles and a pentagon? New-age a...

Strandbeesten walking mechanism

Here is a short version of the Strandbeesten walking mechanism by Theo Jansen. They can be seen wandering the Dutch coast. For details see; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jansen%27s_linkage '======================================================================= ' Strandbeesten. Theo Jansen's walking...

Re: Squares

Also, to Richard and dodicat: perhaps you should stop giving him any explanation, you are just feeding his illusions I am not feeding Albert's illusions, I am grounding his delusions. Albert is a member of this community. If anyone asks me a question I will treat them fairly and answer it the best ...

Re: Squares

@Albert. Nuclear batteries are uneconomic and dangerous. No matter what I write, you will insist it can be done, even though it is no longer done. Rupert Sheldrake invented the terms “Morphic Resonance” and “Morphic Fields” to explain why it is so easy to reinvent something. https://en.wikipedia.org...

Re: Squares

@Richard But if you make the wires out of di-similar radioactive metals ( neptunium / plutonium ) , it should be self powering , without needing a heat source.. The temperature of one end of the wire must be different to the other. That will not happen if the wire material provides the heat. You ar...

Re: Squares

@albert. Do you really want to cause cancer in the users? Radiation makes electronics unreliable and kills semiconductor chips. You have not “invented it”, you have just realised that it could be done. You are so far behind you think you are first. You are 65 years too late. https://en.wikipedia.org...

Most pro-cyclists can leg press 800 to 1,200 pounds.. With a regular bicycle you can only press down with your own weight.. Unless to stand up and pull up on the handle bars.. ( i had a 21 speed bike and bent the handle bars and pedals , powering up a hill.. ) A recumbent bike , like above , you ca...

Re: Squares

Yes, better start digging for coal. Coal is a dirty and addictive habit. It destroys the users and the dealers, along with the environment. Coal will destroy the economy like an addicts budget, if it cannot be controlled. What we really need is an FB mine, somewhere we can dig up new algorithms tha...

Re: Squares

@dodicat. It is good to hear you are still extant. I see the news from USA and UK on TV here and it seems like Covid 19 has really gone viral. Australia is reasonably well isolated, and this island is more isolated again, being as it is at the end of the Earth. Those reality TV series are certainly ...

Re: Squares

Keep it simple.
You can play with the least significant 4 bits and recognise the patterns.

Your computer will be replaced before you have time to test the frequency of all 2^64 possible states.

Re: Squares

@albert The 1, 2, 4, 8, … sequence gives a minimum length possible binary representation. Any number can be encoded uniquely by adding a sub-set of values. If instead you tried to use 1, 3, 4, 8, … then how could you encode 2 or 6 ? If you try 1, 1, 3, 6, 12, 24, … it will take more bits to encode t...
