# Hi There!

### November 22, 2017

getting started, silly code


So, after (many) hours of not paying attention to my lecturer, I've finally managed to get this ghost thing working. Maybe I'll write a nice little piece on it in the future. For now, I will just be using this place as a way of keeping track of things that happen during my time in uni.

-   Get cool maths stuff working
-   Put some sweet images on this thing to make it fun
-   Get some meta stuff and learn SEO (make a post about that too!)
-   Put in some interesting code that **works**

So there it is, everything I'll want to get out the way to start with. Shall we begin?

### Cool Maths Stuff

As far as "cool" goes I don't know, but here's a nice formula I learned for a perfect number, which when I get around to making LaTeX working, will have a delightfully nice style to it:

$$x = \sum{a_i} \quad \forall a \textrm{ where } \frac{x}{a} \in \mathbb{Z}\backslash \{ x\}$$

for example, the first perfect number, 6:

$$6 = 1+2+3 \textrm{ where } \{ \tfrac{6}{1} = 6,\tfrac{6}{2} = 3, \tfrac{6}{3} = 2 \in \mathbb{Z} \}$$

and voila, it just kinda works!

### Some Sweet Images

Here is a sweet image that I can add in. This even comes from my own camera!

Fun fact: the Hungarian parliament building is ranked as the worlds most [impressive parliament](http://wowtravel.me/worlds-most-impressive-parliament-buildings/) building by Wow Travel. And yes its as nice on the inside as it looks on the outside.

### So You Want To Know Code

Have you or somebody you know been suffering from Python multiprocessing issues in windows?

Have you or somebody you know woken up to a broken build when it wasn't your fault?

~~If so you may be entitled to financial compensation, call us now on....~~ WAIT NO! Just put this line on the module/script:

python
if __name__ = "main":
freese_support()


This will fix all your woes and everything should be fine and dandy. [The docs](https://docs.python.org/2/library/multiprocessing.html#miscellaneous), have some pretty in depth stuff on multipocessing and why it breaks on windows but theres too much to explain in this section. Happy reading!

Want to make a certificate? try this:


openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout private_key.pem -x509 -days 365 -out public_cert.pem

And there we have it, the first post on the site that looks a little nerdy and should probably have been shorter based on how much revision I'm not doing. Maybe I'll combine procrastinating and doing revision into one... procrastavison! That sounds like a brilliant idea!
