Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of October 16th 2017

It’s not Monday anymore, but we still need some heavy music to debug to. Late better than never, here’s the fire.

Flip this around to some In This Moment with a flashback to the… ya know, previous decades.

Thrashing Code Metal Monday for Week of October 9th 2017

Alright, this Thrashing Code Metal Monday is going hard core sideways, with something a little different.

First up, which will give you a solid 10 minutes plus of wake up, is Driving Spain up a Wall by the creative smash you in the face band City of Caterpillar.

Next up is a another kick ass band with Bad Brains. Get a taste of early stuff and later material, like one I dig is Rise. There’s a bunch of other tunes that are spastic and frantic as you need. Throw around and check them out.

The Three States of Roadways

A few weeks ago I posed a code challenge that was extremely open ended. It left a lot of elements to the imagination of the reader of the problem to research, determine, or just make up. In that same sense, here is the question that I posed on Monday, September the 18th. The code challenge as I was saying wasn’t some simple, solve it in 5 minutes, type of thing. This was something where we humans actually have real problems to solve in the world. So here we go, this is going to get seriously intense (and long cuz’ I’m gonna describe every bit of my process). I’ll start with a quick recap of the problem.

Given that roadways have three primary functions they’re used for: active transport, storage or parking, and nil or no use. Solve for what percentage of time a roadway experiences each. Details are further elaborated on here:

Ask: Well what type of road is it, how many lanes, how many parking spots? What is the layout?

Answer: Here are three types of roads specifically to solve for in a first attempt. These are specified just to have a starting point.

NOTE: I added pictures of the road types by using Street Mix. If you’re interested in road alignments then this tool might consume a few hours of your day, so beware!
