2004/09/18 15:44:00 - Braille Cheese?
I just noticed that our goat's cheese has braille writing on it; that looks rather like this (which will only work if you have unicode braille fonts!):

⠏⠹⠗⠁⠍⠊⠙⠑
⠀⠉⠓⠮⠧⠗⠑⠀

Hmm, just to complicate matters; that isn't what it said in my browser; because it doesn't seem to have the same character mappings as the unicode.org character chart...

Well, this is what it actually looked like:

image of braille!

Edit: I've corrected that image; I've also screencaptured what mozilla gives me; which is:

incorrect image of braille!

2004/09/18 23:56:00 - Game Theory...
...we played Hearts in the pub this evening. It struck me that to a great extent the correct play was to use a different passing-strategy to the person who was passing you cards; and the same one as the person to whom you are passing (because usually this will make their hand worse).

This results in an interesting game theory situation; what I wonder is the correct meta-strategy here?
