is there a thing like patreon where I do the fun things I was doing anyway for free, but you pay for the witty domain names I put them on?


Anyway, here's what I've made today:
A never-ending list of factorisations. Turns out that you can't scroll faster than the absolutely most naive algorithm imaginable can keep up with.

This came about because I was wondering if there's anything I can use the department's continuously-fed printer for. I want something that more or less fills the width of the page, but can carry on for a long time. Factorisation doesn't work - really long factorisations are rare - but maybe lists of factors would?

prompted by OHSMaths on Twitter, I've made a variant that lists the repeating decimal form of 1/n:

This variant might work printed out: the period gets really really long sometimes!
