Sometimes I feel like a leprechaun that has reached the end of his rainbow to find a modern optics textbook.

_"It dawned on us that out here on this island, we were like a family that has a weird habit they don’t realise is weird.

Let’s say they are normal in every respect except that they all use the same toothbrush before they go to bed. Everything is fine until one of the kids goes on a camping trip with her class . . ."_

Scala World 2015. 21-22 September, Lake District, UK. Two days of intermediate and advanced Scala talks and workshops from the best international speakers, delicious local Cumbrian food and drink, and great hiking amongst the beautifully dramatic scenery of the English Lake District.

...wouldn't see this happening at Trinity.
1st January, 2012. Update: We have solved the sudoku minimum number of clues problem. We have verified by exhaustive computer search that a 16-clue puzzle does not exist. For further details, please download Version 2 of our article and the source code of our programme checker.

Gary's proof is pretty cool. I do have a script that does something simpler. http://www.maths.tcd.ie/common-cgi/sudoku.pl

Apparently there are 3 countries #Irish  people need a visa to visit but UK people don't. Anyone know/guess what they are?

Thanks +Gabe Krabbe very interesting. I assume the 3 difference is "Kazakhstan, Nauru, Rwanda + Suriname" - Iran with Uganda somehow getting missed.

I'm ok with Kazakhstan (invest lots of money and we'll give you a visa waiver), Nauru is already off the list due to being Australia's detention center, and I'm ok with swapping Uganda for Rwanda. So that basically leaves your Mr #Suriname. I'll contact Liam Neeson's people to go all kick ass on you.

(I assume having a 62 year old actor go all kick ass on you is really annoying)

No coincidence it comes from thinking about things while getting drunk in Bali.
Your website should be so simple, a drunk person could use it. But you can't test that, so I'll do it for you.
