Geany – Python Source Code Editor

Geany is good Python source code editor in as it fulfills my required features (i) code-folding and (ii) dark colour theme.

By default, Geany only shipped with white color background. However, different color schemes can be downloaded from here. Currently I am using the geany-dark-scheme.

*In Ubuntu, one of parameters of the config file “filetypes.python” should be: stringeol=0xE23636;0xe0c0e0;false;false.

To Meet the Ultraman


Out of nowhere, I have this idea to visit the motherland of Ultraman.

To see how they train the Ultraman.

To learn how they use the laser beam to kill the raksasa.

Is 0.999… = 1?

Is 0.999… = 1?

Well. Some people say yes. Some people will say no and explain that the radical number 0.999… is approaching 1 but is not 1. The value should be somewhere near to 1 but is not exactly 1.

So, is 0.999… = 1?

I not sure but there is a simple proof that supports the claim.

Let x = 0.999 ... (1)

Multiply (1) by 10,
10x = 9.99 ...   (2)

Then (2)-(1):

9x = 9

x = 1

Python Assignment

Someone think out an assignment to improve my Python skill.

Question: List 10 ways to add from 1 to 10 in Python.

Answer:

# Method 1
num_list = range(10+1)
result = sum(num_list)

# Method 2
num_list = range(10+1)
result = 0
for n in num_list:
	result += n

# Method 3
result = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 +7 + 8 + 9 + 10

# Method 4 (Recursive call)
def calc(num):
	if num == 0:
		return 0
	return num + calc(num-1)

result = calc(10)

Sarcastic Life

Research is all about your attitude, passion, stubbornness to what you believe in your life.

But to live on your believe, you have to keep prost*ing it, even though it is much a precious to you.
