Puzzle Museum

quote [ last update 2018-11-10 3210 ]

Quite some resourceful link collection along with years of monthly antique puzzles. Somehow frozen in time since november 2018.

It is (was?) ran by James Dalgety, curating, amongst others, the puzzles of Edward Hordern.

Nearly 50 Years On, a Forbidden Seaside Ghost Town is about to Re-Open

quote [ magine a millionaire’s resort; one to rival St. Tropez, Italy’s Portofino, or Miami’s South Beach – abandoned overnight. Imagine the luxury hotels suddenly emptied of their guests and left to slowly decay, the boutiques, bars and nightclubs reclaimed by nature, sunbathers replaced by sea turtles nesting on the deserted beaches and the once vibrant holiday spirit silenced; nothing more than a whisper in the wind. ]

Of some old ghost town

The Art of Code

quote [ A complex number is like a project plan: It has a path that is real, and a path that is imaginary. ]

Life programmed in Life itself. Programs that output their source code. Programs that output their source code in a different language. A language that targets music. A language whose source code are recipes. A language whose source code is modern art. A language whose source code are plays. A language whose source code are power ballads. Be a "Rockstar" programmer.

The Real Name Fallacy

quote [ Since the 1980s, anonymity has become an easy villain to blame for whatever fear people hold about social technology, even though lab experiments now point in a different direction. ]

Like the careful wording on this. It also reminded me of the absurd amounts of harassment some politicians face for being public figures – demanding identification as a countermeasure.
