Voyage to the ATX Hackerspace in Austin, Texas (Video)

misterpib Re:Back in the day it was called a bakery (47 comments)

Hacker... space. It's a "space"... where people "hack" on their projects. Seems pretty straightforward. The only part that throws people off is the definition of the term "hack," though these days surely we're beyond thinking that's just people who break into computers?

Solving the Knight's Tour Puzzle In 60 Lines of Python

misterpib Re:better algo (311 comments)

A non-recursive Python version which uses Warnsdorf's heuristic:

It's faster than the one in TFA as well, though it has no backtracking, so it won't find some solutions once you get bigger than 76x76, but at least it doesn't overflow the stack.

It also will tell you whether it found an open, closed, or incomplete path.
