Happy 2nd Birthday, Blog

By Andrew Price, 2007-05-08 01:19:03 in General.

Today my blog is two years old. Aww, isn't it cute.

Since the 8th May 2005, I've managed to write a very humble 106 entries and attract a similarly humble 55 non-spam comments. I'd like to thank all three of my regular readers (my mother being one) and if any of you think I should make my blog more readable or worthwhile, do feel free to contribute a comment to bolster next year's statistics.

Reading back over my first few entries, I notice just how much I've learnt about the world, Linux and the tech world in general and I also notice how I've changed as a person. For instance, I rant a lot less these days. That's a good thing. One unfortunate change that seems to have struck me is that my writing style is a lot more formal and less quirky these days. I really should go back to writing like I did in such entries as "I Wish I Was a Naked Penguin" but perhaps to not such a degree of silliness.

Anyway, I'm starting to see why people keep journals and write blogs, now. It's cool to look back on yourself two years ago and see how you've progressed. Even though you write for the world to read, it's enjoyable to read the entries back for yourself, even if it does just teach you how immature you were back then.

One thing's for certain - I don't half ramble on sometimes :)

Aww, "selinux test" brings back so many memories... Those were the days, huh? I guess my blog must be nearly as old. Freaky. Well, congratulations, Andy. These milestones are the really important ones, right?

Dear Mr. Andrew Price,

I run your perfect map code and it gives me a perfect answer for a graph I want to colour.


But I want to have 12 colors in my colour list.

When I put 12 colours it gives me a perfect_map with 4 colours.

The problem is that I want to take all the several possible solutions using the 4 colours out of the 12!

When I do: findall(X,perfect_map,L). then I get out of stack! The reason is that the code give all the possible solutions with 12 colours and not only with the 4 that it is the best solution.

How can I apply the forward checking technique in order to take only the several different solutions with 4 colours out of the 12?

I want to have 12 colours in my colour list and not only 4.

Looking forward for your reply,
