History.txt

by Matthew Bartlett @ 12:13 pm

Perhaps this will be of interest. Since May last year I’ve been keeping a history file, which I add to when I learn some new historical factoid. Of course it is an eternal work in progress. I suppose that most of the value in it is in manipulating it and adding new items, rather than just reading it. Here it is.

  1. Lucky.

    Einstein gets in there twice.

  2. Matthew Bartlett says:

    Yes, that is me experimenting with representing ranges by having the item appear at both its start and endpoint.

  3. Oo I cee.

    A very informative read. Though I feel if you did that with everything that had ranges you’d needlessly complicate your flow and reduce your maximum data capacitance before it becomes a meaningless jumble.
