Project Euler: problem 20


Sometimes there is just no clever trick, no obscure theorem, no alternative method one can use to solve a problem: this is the case for problem 20 from Project Euler’s collection, that is only a matter of crunching numbers in

Blocks of i3blocks: stuff that rocks


Just sharing my current configuration of i3blocks because someone asked, down there in the Tiling WM community on G+ (seriously, I do use G+).  If you are reading this, you probably know what Linux, a (tiling) WM (specifically i3 but

Project Euler – Problem 4 (and a short disclaimer)


Well, actually the disclaimer comes first. At least it is short, I promise! Disclaimer Problems proposed on Project Euler site are intended as exercises to practice and improve maths and coding skills; for that reason users cannot access any hints

Project Euler: problem 6


Problem 6 from Project Euler list is so easy, it only requires pen & paper (a pocket calculator would help, maybe) and basic knowledge about series to solve, without writing a single line of code: The sum of the squares

A starter in Python: finding “curious numbers”


After so much procrastination (an art I seem to master quite well…), at last I started messing with Python. The final kick-start came from a short post about “curious numbers”  on gorgeous John D. Cook’s blog. In short, a number

Window managers -5- 2bwm


So… you want a lighter-than-air window manager, something that takes the least possible amount of system resources. You want no frills but still enough ease to get your stuff done. Well, look no further: here is 2bwm, floating/stacking window manager
