Powermaster Optimus Prime


18[.]06[.]2003

Diary: [W]hen I teach taught [E]rg maths, I have had new 
ideas[. B]ut I have no new ideas in research now. 

09[.]07[.]2003

Yesterday, I went to Shatin [T]oys[R][U]s to buy a 
[robot] model for brother. But finally, I saw a 
[PowerMaster] Opimus [P]rime which I wanted to buy when 
I was small. 

Consider [whether to buy or not] for several some 
moment. [And then bought it.]

[.]

At home, we discovered that the small person-robot had 
been stolen. 

[So s]uddenly, I gave up my happiness. 

Luckily, after playing the robot with brother, instead 
of blaming me for not buying a model for him to 
construct, he loved the robot. I was very happy too as 
I discussed "the Transformers generation one" with him.

To edit Lazarus code in Emacs:

1. Open Emacs’ initialization file, whose location should be

~/.emacs

2. Add the follwing code:

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

(defmacro compile-with (command-string)

  `(progn

    (save-buffer)

    (unless visual-line-mode
      (visual-line-mode 1))

    (universal-argument)

    (compile ,command-string)))

(defmacro defcomp (fn command-string kbd-string)

  `(progn

     (defun ,fn ()

       (interactive)

       (compile-with ,command-string))

     (global-set-key (kbd ,kbd-string) ',fn)))

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

(defcomp g-la-com

    (concat
     "lazbuild "
     (replace-regexp-in-string
      "pas" "lpi" buffer-file-name))

    "C-x C-p")

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

(defcomp g-la-run

    (replace-regexp-in-string
     ".pas" "" buffer-file-name)

    "C-x C-[")

;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

3. Close Emacs.

4. Use the Lazarus IDE to create a console project named p11.

5. Close Lazarus.

6. Use Emacs to open the file p11.pas.

A big scratch on the door

One of Intel’s top executives once told me that he finally understood how things had changed in microprocessor business when someone asked him if he would accept delivery on an expensive new automobile if it was in perfect condition except for a big scratch on the door. After all, the car would deliver the same fuel economy, same performance, same cargo capacity, same expected service lifetime. But no, he paid for a perfect product, and that’s what he expected.

Computing Note

21122002 not mine but quotation

Yet, in principle, computers cannot be asked to discover proofs, except in very restricted areas of mathematics–such as elementary Euclidean geometry–where the set of theorems happens to be recursive, as was proved by Tarski.

… the prime number theorem was first suggested as the result of extensive hand calculations on the prime numbers up to 3,000,000 by the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler (1707-83), a process that would have been greatly facilitated by the availability of a modern computer.

Thus Godel was able to assert that the set of theorems of mathematics is recursively enumerable, and, more recently, the American linguist Noam Chomsky (b. 1928) could say that the set of grammatical sentences of a natural language, such as English, is recursively enumerable.

Godel’s incompleteness theorem is that the consistency of mathematics can be proved only in a language which is stronger than the language of mathematics itself. Yet, formalism is not dead- …

Encyclopædia Britannica

The preceding illustrates, simply but clearly, one of the proclivities that are often associated with mathematical thought: relatively simple concepts (such as integers), initially based on very concrete operations (for example, counting), are found to be capable of assuming novel meanings and potential uses, extending far beyond the limits of the concept as originally defined.
