And here we are again. Ludum Dare. Taken directly from their about page...
Ludum Dare is a regular accelerated game development Event. Participants develop games from scratch in a weekend, based on a theme suggested by community.
More specifically, the goal is to make a game from scratch in 48 hours. You're allowed to use publicly available frameworks and code libraries, but no art or other assets. Previously, I missed the original start time. So although I made my game in 48 hours, it didn't qualify. This time around, I'm starting on time.
What's this? Two posts in one day? Well, writing a static blog generator can do that. :)
Another easily phrased challenge:
We have a simple little problem today: Given an integer n > 2, find the minimum b > 1 for which n base b is a palindrome.

Today's five minute post brought to you via Programming Praxis / Career Cup:
Given a positive integer, return all the ways that the integer can be represented by letters using the mapping 1 -> A, 2 -> B, …, 26 -> Z. For instance, the number 1234 can be represented by the words ABCD, AWD and LCD.
Huh. Things suddenly look a bit different around here, don't they?
Long story short, I finally finished a project that I've been working on off and on for the better part of two years: converting my blog to a static website.
Here's another post from /r/DailyProgrammer: Advanced Langton's Ant. I'm a bit behind the times (see tomorrow's post), but it's still an interesting enough exercise, so let's go for it!
