Sat May 28 09:44:31 EDT 2016 Slept from around eleven to nine. Woke up for a bit around six. High of eighty-six. Good chance of thunderstorms, mainly after noon. Goals: - Clean/tidy apartment a little (Drain-o tub, change sheets) Done. Vacuumed, watered plants, refilled shower spray, changed my sheets, Drain-o'd the tub, wiped down the kitchen counters. - Fix tumble log, even if I intend to eventually replace blelo Partially. - Convert Mercuial repo or just fresh import of files? I created a new git repo, imported the existing files, and wrote a new README. - Security, in terms of adding and deleting stuff - Make dispatch.php not require web server rewrites I ordered a Vornado 630 fan/air circulator. My old one broke last year, after many years of service. Took a twenty minute indoor walk. http://qz.com/639452/mathematicians-are-geeking-out-about-a-bizarre-discovery-in-prime-numbers/ "Apart from the single-digit prime numbers 2 and 5, all other prime numbers can only end in one of four digits: 1, 3, 7, or 9. (If a number ends in 2, 4, 6, 8 or 0, it will be divisible by 2. If it ends in 5, it will be divisible by 5.) Thus, if they were truly random, a prime number that ends in 1 should be followed by another prime number ending in 1 about 25% of the time. That is, this kind of pairing should occur at least one in four times. But when Kannan Soundararajan and Robert Lemke Oliver checked the first billion prime numbers, they found that a prime number ending in 1 is followed by another also ending in 1 about 18% of the time. That is, this kind of pairing occurred only one in five times. Instead, that prime number was followed by a prime number ending in 3 or 7 about 30% of the time and by 9 about 22% of the time. This result holds true for prime numbers ending in 3, 7 or 9 too, but with slightly less bias." It finally rained this afternoon. Hopefully, this knocks down the humidity. http://www.spiegel.de/international/tomorrow/a-1093371.html What Does It Mean To Be Poor? Interesting, but may be not the best thing for me to have read, given my anxiety about work. What about snow logging and personnel call-out for multi-family housing as a startup idea? Breakfast: two slices of left-over pizza Lunch: a wheat pita and roasted red pepper hummus, carrots, spinach Dinner: fucking pizza again. Not as much of a treat this time. I've got to find a better dinner option.
