### Re: Pentacles

Richard. Do you use an editor to draw the fonts, it must have been a lot of work. They would be very handy for games coders. The reverse engineered stroke table is from my cloned PCB layout code. I wrote this short converter code. It makes the initialisation array. A little bit of editing followed ...

### Re: Pentacles

Your graphics says it all. On Oct 20, 2020, Albert was banned for off topic posting, until 31 Dec 2020.
The admins tired of all the reports they had to handle regarding Albert's posts unrelated to FB.
He now has time to find a more appropriate forum. Or if he returns, to change his approach.

### Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

Very interesting. I wonder how you came to that. It was interesting... I expected the lower bound would be a Log(x) function to some specific base. So I looked at the points falling below a trial bound of; y = 2 * Log2( x ) The reasoning was; If my Log() hypothesis was correct then; Applying the ch...

### Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

If we represent the sum of the prime factors of x by; y = Spf( x ) The rays on the diagram follow straight lines; y = Spf( a ) + x / a For prime values of a this generates points on the line; y = a + x / a Those lines are tangent to the line y = 2 + Sqr( x ) Notice that slopes and y-intercepts diffe...

### Re: Sum of prime factors of positive integers

I think sum=2+(P/2) is missing from your factorisation. Somewhat butchered. Now includes all factors and primes. Dim prime( 1 To 12 ) As Short = { 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37 } Dim As Short primes = 12, n = prime( primes )^2 Dim As Short i, residue, sum, f_count, p_index, max ' setup ...

@xlucas
The upper bound that you follow with your max and plot as circles is; sum = 2 * Sqr( i )

### Pentacles

Well, the thread Circles went around in circles, until it got dizzy, then Circles got squared. I am sure attempts to square the circle, by square programmers will continue. The Squares thread should logically progress to either Triangles or Pentagons, so how about triangles and a pentagon? New-age a...

Also, to Richard and dodicat: perhaps you should stop giving him any explanation, you are just feeding his illusions I am not feeding Albert's illusions, I am grounding his delusions.

### Re: Squares

@Albert. Nuclear batteries are uneconomic and dangerous. No matter what I write, you will insist it can be done, even though it is no longer done. Rupert Sheldrake invented the terms “Morphic Resonance” and “Morphic Fields” to explain why it is so easy to reinvent something. https://en.wikipedia.org...

### Re: Squares

@Richard But if you make the wires out of di-similar radioactive metals ( neptunium / plutonium ) , it should be self powering , without needing a heat source.. The temperature of one end of the wire must be different to the other. That will not happen if the wire material provides the heat. You ar...

### Re: Squares

@albert. Do you really want to cause cancer in the users? Radiation makes electronics unreliable and kills semiconductor chips. You have not “invented it”, you have just realised that it could be done. You are so far behind you think you are first. You are 65 years too late. https://en.wikipedia.org...
