On Bitcoin: It is a Total Turing Machine

  On August 24, 2019, Craig S. Wright, a man wrote a conference paper titled Bitcoin, A Total Turing Machine . In Wright’s paper, Wright stated that he demonstrated the Bitcoin script language is capable of primitive recursion, but it can also deploy an Ackermann function. So, the Ackermann function can simply recurse within Bitcoin script: it is proof Bitcoin as a script system is Turing complete ( link ). Wright went a step further by introducing a new Turing machine class, the PTTM (probabilistic total Turing machine): it allowed him to find an artifact capable of acting as a verifier for a non-interactive, associated TM as a proof system. In typical use cases, Bitcoin is capable of secure contract offers including best fit solutions to logistic information systems, optimization problems such as the travelling salesman problem, and optimizing systems. In application, Bitcoin can be offered in 2 different contracts: open or time-bound contract, guaranteeing payment, but it allows the

A New Season: Algorithms

A New Season Last month, I decided to work in a company as an SDET (rundown of my initial thoughts: link ). That means ‘Software Developer in Test.’ However, as I went through the training, there were some issues presented to me: I found incorrect training parameters. In the 1st 3 weeks, it was mostly review: I literally only learned 1 new concept and 2 new lines of code, and I was expected to interview for a professional role in early October, 2021. I did not believe I could give my client a superior service. At this point, I wish them well, but I am pursuing other goals.  Now that the old season is done, a new sustainable app: Algorithms. More recently, I started attempting EN.605.621, Foundations of Algorithms. Much of the training data is technical: as it should be. But as second World War’s participants proved, Computer Scientists, today, need more than technical skill: they need righteous ethics. On Bit Jet Kit media, I, Bit Jet Kit, try my best to integrate faith with reason. My

The Next Phase of my Career: Test Automation Development

In recent weeks, I have sought a new employer, but I did not look in vain. Within a couple days of updating my Indeed.com resume, I was recruited to a new Information Technology position. But I also applied. So, it was standard process. The company is Quintrix Solutions, a Mindlance Company. Actually, I gave Mindlance my resume through Indeed. The representatives approved my initial interest, but they required I pass a technical assessment. Since I had recently worked on a Pi app, gaining a multi-threading understanding, I felt confident. So, I took the assessment without preparation. But it was a hard reality check. So, I only passed by ~20 points over the failure rate, so I think it was like a B or B-. If I had not dedicated most of my effort to the quantitative assessment, I would have been declined this job opportunity. In the test, the hardest parts were the simple interest calculations because I normally work on series and sequences regarding things I already know. But the simp

Resuming Pace: I Shall Not Be Pursuing a Second Bachelor's Degree

On May the 5th, 2021, I used a strong position deciding my pursuit of a second Bachelor’s degree: my choice was the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC, link ), but I decided to resume my Master’s program, by itself.  Let me explain with Scripture: the Gospel of Jesus Christ According to Matthew, specifically. In ancient times, records of a man called Jesus the Christ were written. Among these records was a Gospel, According to Matthew, of Jesus Christ. According to legend, Jesus Christ stated, “Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (KJV, Matthew 5:5, link ).” Jesus the Christ was saying those who are submissive shall inherit the earth rather than those who are brash.  In my attempt at starting a second Bachelor’s program, I eventually realized I had been too pushy: I wanted the May 19th start date, and I wanted the admission process expedited, I wanted ease of access between majors, I wanted advantages to the application process because of what UMGC (I was gra

A God of Forces: JEDI, Weighed Against Ending its Cloud Project because of Amazon

During early Eastern Standard Time hours, today, the Wall Street Journal’s John D. McKinnon wrote Pentagon Weighs Ending JEDI Cloud Project Amid Amazon Court Fight ( link ). McKinnon wrote on Washington, District of Columbia soil, Pentagon professionals considered ending the JEDI cloud-computing project (in Software Engineering lingo, it is really a program, the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure): it is because Amazon.com Inc. has pushed litigation against it, and lawmakers are increasing their unfriendliness toward it. According to McKinnon, in 2019, Microsoft Corp. received the JEDI contract award, but Amazon contested this on court soil since then. On the Wall Street Journal, McKinnon continued: in April 2021, a federal judge refused the Pentagon’s demand to dismiss Amazon’s case, but the legal reasoning is unclear ( link ). Following this, Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks stated the Pentagon would review JEDI, wrote McKinnon. McKinnon stated Hicks’ statement was on Ap

Donald Trump's YouTube Ban: Live with It

Today, on the Wall Street Journal, Tripp Mickle wrote Trump Is Still Banned on YouTube. Now the Clock Is Ticking . But Mickle wrote, “With Donald Trump’s return to Facebook in limbo, YouTube has emerged as the former president’s best chance to return to social media in the near future” ( link ). Mickle believes former United States president Donald Trump has a clear path back to the spotlight. But why? Trump Incited the January 6, 2021 Insurrection Even though millions of Americans believe otherwise, approximately 100 million ( link ), I shall contend with this: because of Donald Trump, the insurrection. On January 6, 2021, I watched it transpire from my hotel room in Brentwood, Tennessee: it was an atrocity. President Trump goaded his crowd of supporters over and again, but he was not alone. He repeatedly told his audience to fight. In America, the English word, fight, means the same thing it does in other parts of the world where English is spoken: it is a serious word that is relate

Changing Pace: Pursuing a 2nd Bachelor's Degree

In higher education, nothing sets the standard for entry level jobs like a Bachelor's degree. Learners often seek an Associate's degree, according to the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics), 49 percent of the United States population ( link ). But they also often progress to a Bachelor's level degree, us being 39 percent of the United States population according to NCES. Thus, there is a 10 percent difference in population regarding who has an Associate's degree versus who has a Bachelor's degree. Even greater, the NCES reported 9 percent of the United States population has a Master's or Doctorate degree: I am working toward a Master's degree. But I recently decided to try for something I wanted, years ago: a 2nd Bachelor's degree. Let me explain. Standards Are High In my current university, the Johns Hopkins University, the standard is raised high: basically, I need a B- or better for every class (I can earn a degree with 1 C-range grade, bu
