  27. <![CDATA[<p>As it is Bonfire Night (aka Guy Fawkes Night) and I might not get another chance to tell it given recent events, without further ado I present my Brexit joke.</p>
  28. <p>Race relations in Britain have improved tremendously in recent years for Blacks and Asians but sadly bigots have a new target: the large number of people who have recently emigrated from Eastern Europe.  Why Boris Johnson only made a pierogi in Parliament and one and half million people signed a petition to stop him.</p>
  29. <p>There you have it, my Brexit joke. Thankyou very much and goodnight!</p>]]>

  53. <p>We have spent Diwali week this year in sunny Orlando Florida doing various touristy things.  (None of which involve a certain copyright hoarding mouse I&#39;m happy to say.)  I didn&#39;t put up a [VAC] notice because I haven&#39;t really been doing anything much in Debian of late. That is something I hope to change in the coming year but I&#39;ll think about that later.  Right now I&#39;m excited about the day trip we&#39;re going to make to Cape Canaveral.  So here is a picture of Apollo 12, one of the biggest fireworks Man has ever sent to the Gods on Diwali 2026.  Well, the pedant in me is forced to point out the launch date was actually Labh Pancham but that&#39;s close enough.</p>]]>

  61. <![CDATA[<p>The sole purpose of this post is to check my new hackergotchi looks ok on Debian Planet.  As I&#39;ve lost a lot of weight and this is the second Diwali I&#39;ve managed to survive without regaining, I thought I should update it to a more accurate depiction.</p>]]>

  71. <p>This year fireworks became legal for the first time in New Jersey.  Not that it ever stopped us before but it is nice to see the government stop meddling for no reason.

  75. <p>Although you can only see sparklers in the picture above, we got enough armament to make <span class="caps">ISIS </span>jealous.  There were also lots of diabetes-inducing sweets and (inexpensive, practical) presents for young and old.  That&#39;s what I call a proper Diwali and new year.</p> ]]>

  100. <title>Harshad Numbers</title>
  101. <link>http://www.braincells.com/debian/index.cgi/search/item=310</link>
  102. <description>
  103. <![CDATA[<p>Today while looking up something in my productivity nemesis Wikipedia, I was waylaid by an article on <a href="http://mathworld.wolfram.com/HarshadNumber.html">Harshad numbers<a>.  (Link goes to Wolfram Mathworld out of spite.)  This was interesting to me because Harshad is my patronym.  Harshad numbers are also known as Niven numbers but what kind of a crazy name is that?  A Harshad number is a positive integer that is divisible by the sum of its&#39; digits.</p>
  104.  
  105. <p>1-10 are obviously Harshad numbers in base 10.  11 is not because 1 + 1 = 2 and 11 is not divisible by 2. 12 is because 1 + 2 = 3 and 12 is divisible by 3.  And so on...you get the picture.  Things get even more interesting when you deal with other bases.</p>
  106.  
  107. <p>Here is a perl one-liner to get the base 10 Harshad numbers from 1 to 100.</p>
  108.  
  109.  
  110.  
  111. <pre><code>
  112. $ perl -E &#39;$i=0+shift;for$n(1..$i){$t=0;map{ $t+=$_+0}(split q{},$n);print $n%$t==0?&quot;$n &quot;:q{};}say&#39; 100
  113. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 12 18 20 21 24 27 30 36 40 42 45 48 50 54 60 63 70 72 80 81 84 90 100
  114. </code></pre>]]>
