I have dropped off my daughter at “Coding Club” which sounds like an excellent idea! Looking forward to finding out what they did. That reminded me to post a couple more Euler solutions. Not pretty, but they worked.
Euler 8 initialisation code
Euler 8 Main Program
Euler 9 only took about 5 minutes to do, there are lots of possible optimisations!
Incidentally, the coding club started with html and the pupils made a web page (manually).
Also, further to my post below, the easiest way to move a VM from vSphere to VMware Workstation, is of course, copy the files. It is running very well.
I am impressed with the 1TB Freecom XXS drive I bought. I have used it to backup my QNAP prior to a firmware upgrade and I am now using it for a bunch of VMware workstation virtual machines.
Maximum write speed of XXS
I am not impressed with the interoperability of VMware products. I exported a guest from vsphere into an ovf package but you can’t import this into VMware workstation! I’ve had this problem before and there are plenty fixes on the web. Still very annoying though.
Workstation import error
As it happens, I realise that I created this ovf by exporting a hardware version 8 machine which I strongly suspect will not load into VMware workstation 7. Have to wait for an upgrade.
For my own reference, here are a couple more solutions that I put in a few weeks ago.
Solution of euler 6
Euler 7 solution
As discussed in the earlier post, just to prove that persistence and patience pay off.
I often think patience is the most important quality needed in ICT.
