While 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.
Today is the 26th of January and in the “Lucky Country” it is the Australia Day public holiday.
Australia Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson in New South Wales and the landing of Governor Arthur Phillip in Sydney Cove.
Today is New Year’s Eve 2016, the final day for the year before we welcome in 2017 singing Auld Lang Syne like Boney M and then sleep for the first half of the day.
So for the final post for the year I have some videos to make you think.
I have been very busy the last few months working on the next build of GP Power Tools (Build 22) and so have not been posting much on the blog. I am extremely excited about the new release as the development almost complete. More details will follow.
However, today’s post is to wish everyone in the community a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Last weekend, my wife (Jennifer) and I went down to our holiday house, Tweed Cottage, for the Blues At Bridgetown music festival in Bridgetown, Western Australia.
Bridgetown is about 270km (168 miles) south of Perth (a two and a half to three hour drive depending on traffic) and the town hosts an annual Blues music festival on the second weekend of November, starting on Friday afternoon and running for all of Saturday and Sunday. This year was the 24th festival and featured a line up of local, national and international artists.
Back in February of this year I posted a simple maths puzzle that I had seen on a Facebook post; Trending: Only for genius ?? 3 – 3 x 6 + 2 = ?? to challenge my readers.
Little did I know that the follow up post; Answer: Only for genius ?? 3 – 3 x 6 + 2 = ?? would go viral and cause my blog to reach the number 1 ranking on Worldmaps.
Some of you might know that I have a hobby as a DJ. Not a radio style DJ who has not touched a record (or CD) for years and talks too much. Not a remix DJ who digitally mashes up multiple songs into a single confused track. Not a DJ who creates their own music.
I am talking about a old style club DJ who plays dance music, beat mixes, and might use the odd sample or bit of scratching for fun.
