I wanted to make a countdown timer that used the code from "Separating and Joining Time" to see how it could be implemented into something more neat. I decided to make it countdown towards the end of support for Windows Vista but, it ended while I was making it, so I had to change it to countdown towards Windows 7's end of support instead. Later on, I decided to talk about my opinion of Windows 7 for a bit.
These are scripts I made to help me generate large lists of numbers or text, generally for The Cutting Room Floor when I needed to write down a list of addresses. Their page is really simple, but, it's the functionality that counts in this case. I only published these a year after they were made. There was a third one, compoaz, which I scrapped because it was useless and didn't even work.
More simple code, this time, it's about time itself. Specifically, separating time into smaller and smaller units (how much time is one thousand hours?), or joining various units together into one (1 hour and 10 minutes equates to how many seconds?). I also made a post about this.
When I was bored at school, I started noting down the difference between each square root and its previous one. At one point, I started to notice a patten and made a formula for it. It's already a well-known formula, but it's still neat that I was able to find it just like that. I wrote more details about it here.
