First off, I just wanted to say that I hope everyone had a relaxing and
enjoyable holiday season and that you enjoyed your New Year's
celebration. Whatever you did that day or night, don't name it after me.

I'm not dead yet! I've just been insanely busy the last month or two
with changing jobs and preparing my first programming presentation for
BayPiggies and Silicon Valley Code
Camp (which is a post for the
near future). Both of these have kept me away from my blog ...

The following iterative sequence is defined for the set of positive
integers: n → n/2 (n is even) n → 3n + 1 (n is odd). Using the rule
above and starting with 13, we generate the following sequence: 13 → 40
→ 20 → 10 ...

Problem thirteen from Project Euler is one of those problems that's so
simple, I don't understand why it's in the double digits section. The
problem reads:

1
2

Work out the first ten digits of the sum of the
following one-hundred 50-digit numbers.

It all started with a simple question: “Which single IP shows up the
most in an apache log file?” To which I ultimately came up with an
answer using a string of Bash commands:

It’s time once again for a favorite blog theme, The Project Euler post.
This time around I am answering problem twelve. The website states the
problem as:

1
2
3
4
5

The sequence of triangle numbers is generated by adding the natural
numbers. So the 7th triangle number ...

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I enjoy solving problems. And over
the course of the last year or two, I’ve learned that interview
questions make for great problems to work on. Actual interview problems
are nice because they are usually quick, but have a quirk ...

A couple of months ago the Programming Praxis website put up a challenge
to find a sum inside an array of integers (the direct wording of the
challenge can be found
here)
and since I’ve come up with my own solution, this little challenge has
provided me with a ...

In the last blog post I made with this title, I told a little story on
how I helped a learning Haskell programmer see why his version of the
code wasn't as complete as the example given. I also thought that this
series wouldn't be having a second ...
