kmorel / SYourNeighbor.py
Created Jul 22, 2014
A Python script to compute the odds of a game of Screw Your Neighbor (a.k.a. Ranter-Go-Round) by trying all possible combinations of deals.

Created Jan 25, 2014
A techBASIC program for controlling an RC car via a RedBearLabs BLE shield on an Arduino running firmata and a jumpered motor shield.

! This app uses the accelerometer to control a car hacked to use the

! The reason I am putting a button over the drag area is because I want to fill

! the drag events, I have to disable the button, which messes up the colors.

kmorel / birthdays.csv
Created Sep 15, 2013
A result file for the birthday problem simulator (https://gist.github.com/kmorel/6567225). For a given number of people (up to 1000), it gives the probability of having 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 people with the same birthday.
