Link of the Day: Turing's Zeta-function machine

Link of the Day

Turing's Zeta-function machine, 1939



AMT/C/2
Blueprint, 'Zeta function machine', signed D.C.M. and dated 17 July 1939.


The reason I put this up for today's link of the day is because I was reading Cryptonomicon I borrowed from the library. In it, it was saying that Zeta function was used as a random number generator.

This is a link to a list of games developed by MIT alumni. Quite interesting.

Tried NetBSD on Sharp Zaurus SL-C700

Tried NetBSD on Sharp Zaurus SL-C700 today.
It worked flawlessly by following the steps on this Japanese page here.

First I had to write the image file into the 1GB SD card by Rawrite32.
Then just following the steps on that page made it work! :)
