Friday Funny: Yet another Mathematical Challenge for you

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIt has been a while since I posted a Friday Funny post or a puzzle for you to solve. So today this shall be rectified. Here is something to keep you entertained as I travel to Fargo, ND, USA for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Tech Conference 2017.

The following Mathematical Challenge is one that is causing confusion all over the interwebs and is one which I believe can have two legitimate answers. However I would argue that only one of those two answers is actually correct.

Friday Funny: Bicycles built based on people’s attempts to draw them from memory

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is from a little while ago (March 2016), but it is hilarious… especially if you enjoy cycling like I do.

Before you read any further, let’s start with a challenge: Grab a pen and a piece of paper and draw a men’s bicycle from memory, include as much detail as you can.

How did you go? Could your drawing actually work

#FabrikamDay is today or is it?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday is the 12th of April 2017 (at least it is already in Perth) and is now known in the Microsoft Dynamics GP community as “Fabrikam Day” thanks to the Training Dynamo herself, Amber Bell.

While most customers set up a test company based on their live company’s data, partners including ISVs (Independent Software Vendors) and sales & support consultants have usually used the Sample or Lesson company that comes with Dynamics GP to demo and test.

April Fool: The terrible truth about Dihydrogen-Monoxide

I do believe in minimizing pollution and using limited resources efficiently. I also think that we should do our bit to bring down our carbon emissions even though it will hurt our economy, while the economic powerhouses of less developed countries use their cheaper labour and non-existent pollution restrictions to take up the slack.

So Yesterday was Pi Day, or was it?

David Meego - Click for blog homepageWhile working hard yesterday I came across a post shared on the Book of Face by my friend Denni Conner. It showed the mathematic constant of π (Pi) played as a song and was an interesting approach to try and memorize the sequence of numbers.

The post said it was Pi Day because the date was 3.14 and that the celebrated time was 1:59 PM as that gave the number sequence 3.14159 which is Pi to 5 decimal places and the most that “normal” people can remember. If you can remember more digits that is great, but you are in a minority.
