When was the last time you updated your blog? Have you done anything lately that was worth blogging about? These are all questions that have been rattling around my head recently. I’ve experienced it myself, I’ve seen it via my colleagues. When people are working on interesting stuff, focused on solving clearly defined business goals, their blogs are full of detail and insightful to read! If the business is losing or has lost direction, blogs . . .
I’m trying to start up on project Euler again, one thing I do like is that it highlights how poor some of my maths knowledge actually is. Neither school or college covered many of these algorithms; which is a bit of a surprise given that I did a four-year mechanical apprenticeship with applied mathematics…..still never too late to learn So I (re)started on problem 24 which read: A permutation is an ordered arrangement of objects. . . .
Just a word of warning: Windows NT and Windows Server 2003 do not support .NET 4.5 – you can not install the framework onto these systems. So if you are building in visual studio 2012 and have to support Server 2003 (or earlier) then you must remember to target .NET4.0 (or lower) in your project(s) otherwise you will not be able to run them on the target system. That would be a really bad thing . . .
