Exlaxi

There is not much to say at that point in the project when expectations are tempered with reality and a scapegoeat is sought. Marketing will blame Engineering, Engineering will blame Software, Software will blame Sales. It is then that a Diagnostic Manager is recruited to provide top management with an animal to lay hands upon.

The Class Act

At a desk in the Kremlin in Moscow in the Soviet Union on planet Earth revolving around the Sun in the Milky Way galaxy of the Andromeda local cluster within the Kanobi super-cluster of the Universe in the mind of God there sat a computer scientist cursing her terminal. True, she was connected to the largest network in Russia, but she knew that at this moment somewhere in the United States there were thousands of programmers using machines light-years beyond the capabilities of even the best that her government could offer. There had to be a better way. And, since she, Pushka Buttonov, was Commissar of Technological Assessment and Procurement, it was her task to find it. The Premier was counting on her.

The Dungeon Master

“Welcome to Erratic Computers, man I help you?”

“I’m here to see Mike Droop.”

“That’s ‘Duke’.”

“Oh, I’m sorry. ‘Duke’.” 

“You may have a chair. It will only be a minute.”

“Thank you.”

Lorenz Attractor

Made with POV-Ray. POV-Ray is a high-quality, free software tool for creating three-dimensional graphics. Available for download here: http://www.povray.org/

The Lorenz attractor is a simplified model of convection of a gas within a confined space. This very simple model results in some very interesting motion, an example of deterministic chaos. A chaotic system is very sensitive to initial conditions and the system rapidly diverges.
