Here is a distributed computing project with an easy to use installer that also gives back a relatively beautiful visualiser client users can run on their desktops. I installed it actually because I just wanted to rotate and zoom and see how a molecule moves when it's warm. I'm guessing this simulation is at 36° celsius or perhaps 20°, and I wanted to watch the atoms "bump around in a frenzy". And yeah they bump...

I'm curious to see if I can push to somehow get the whole country (or at least the people reading this blog!) behind one master team...  then shoot for number 1 on the charts. Luckily the obvious choice - team 32887 - is already the leading team containing our countries name as it's title:

"New Zealand": folding.stanford.edu/stats/team/32887

I'm user tomachi and my stats are here: http://folding.stanford.edu/stats/donor/1900473 Currently ranked 1,900,914th that's like last place oh well the only way is up. I feel this is a better use of spare compute cycles than say.... Bitcoin mining! Shout outs to users below

In this animation the camera does not move, in fact only the Z dimension is altered. From -5 to 5 as I recall. Most of the interesting action is between -1 and 1 naturally.

My friends in Takapuna need more enquiries. And I need to test my referral link-tracking Javascript and I really need an inbound link at their vacancies.


Is this the PHI of 12 tone music? Equal tempered semi-tone multiplier

2 to power of 1/12

2 to power of 1/12

Take any positive number, multiply it by this number twelve times, then divide by 2. Same number you started with in theory. This should be what you multiply a tone frequency like concert pitch 440 hertz to get A# as 466.16 hertz.

So I finally found a use for Wolfram Alpha! I was able to use it factor or solve the quadratic equation:

To find the value of X when A > 0, and also when A*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X*X = A*2

The solution is that X = 2^1/12 (two to the power of 1/12). Which is roughly 1.05946309 or more precisely:

BREAKING NEWS: Cliff collapse in Kohimarama

Cliff collapse in Kohimarama persons unaccounted for (they safe now)

#Breaking #Auckland #landslide #missionbay #kohimarama

It was not before 8:40pm. But after 8pm maybe. I can still feel the odd after-shock I reckon. I'm located in Comins Crescent but have no idea till the morning where this landslide is located. My theory: the Nihil Reserve earthworks nearby. Hopefully I'm still here in the morning. If not.... well it has been a sweet sweet life. Can die happy. Ready to be swallowed up, but hey I might go for a midnight walk in the rain...
