Solitaire Odds

Ever played Solitaire, Patience or Klondike and wondered what the odds are of moving all of the cards to the Ace piles? I did, and after quite a bit of research a couple of things became quite evident. Firstly, an exact mathematical solution does not exist; and secondly, statistical solutions based on playing a huge number of games were impossible to find.

So… I wrote my own program (Bill's Solitaire Tester) which would play Solitaire lots and lots of times to see if I could come up with an empirical (or brute force) solution myself. Click here to see the results.

The diagram is downloadable in GIF, JPG and PNG formats. Click here to view...


Delaunay Portraits

I wrote a small VB program to help me turn a picture into a mesh of filled Delaunay triangles. It's a lot easier to show examples of this than to try to explain it. Click here if you would like to see more...

 

 

 

 

Map Projections

Another VB program, this one creates attractive maps of the world using Azimuthal projections centered on any user input location. This is a nice way of seeing where the rest of the world is relative to wherever you are, or any other place you select. Click here if you would like to see more...
