How to recreate this complex iteration

I came across this image in a book Im reading:

enter image description here

(taken from Rational Iteration Complex Analytic Dynamical Systems from Steinmetz. I hope it is okay to share it here)

and I try to recreate it in Mathematica. I tried

JuliaSetPlot[(9 + 2 z + 9 z^2)/20, z]

which gives a complete different picture.

enter image description here

I also tried to use

ColorFunction -> With[{cf = ColorData["M10DefaultFractalGradient"]}, cf@Sqrt[#3] &]

which doesn’t improve anything. So JuliaSetPlot might not be the right method. Do you have any suggestions?

Can you show rng code running in real time in a game?

First off, I know almost nothing about game development/rng but I will learn. So apologies for sounding uninformed.

I want to make a sandbox ios game with several activities to do within, one of which is poker, but I want the poker to be infallibly transparent unlike online poker. They wouldn’t dare.

So I want to show the rng code to be viewable by players as the hand plays out, so players will know its legit, and can verify after the hand etc if they have concerns, is this possible, can you "show" rng?

Godaddy expired domain transfer

My domain recently expired on 12/05/2021 and I wanted to transfer it to a new registrar.

So I initiated the transfer.

Unlocked the domain and got the transfer auth key and initiated the transfer at the new registrar after paying the fee.

I then receive an email from godaddy saying the following.

Your domain could not be transferred. couldn't be transferred to another registrar for the following reason:  Express written objection to the transfer from the Transfer Contact. (e.g. - email, fax, paper document or other processes by which the Transfer Contact has expressly and voluntarily objected through opt-in means). 

I then get in touch with godaddy support and ask why the transfer was denied, they told me that the domain had expired and that I had to renew it before I could transfer it, I asked them to show me where it said so and they didn’t have any documentation to that effect.

I then stated that based on the icann [rules][1] stated under the FAQs that under point 11 I can transfer an expired domain.

In anycase I filed a complaint with icann regarding this.

However since I received a transfer auth code, does it mean that the transfer will go through?

Below mentioned PHP error is blocking me from adding new post on my wordpress website. Kindly assist.

Resource overlap between Synapse databases

I have an Azure Synapse dedicated pool with a single database. It is scaled to DW500c which the documentation says means it has a single compute node.

If I add a second database how does work against it affect the first DB’s resources? Will the second DB reside on the same node as the first, or will the second have its own dedicated memory & compute?

Having tried it and queried sys.pdw_nodes_pdw_physical_databases from each DB I see different values for pdw_node_id between the results. This makes me think they are separate hardware (VMs, k8s containers, whatever) but I cannot find documentation to confirm or deny my hunch.

Design isn’t just art!

Just thought I'd share my latest medium article on this topic, just because so many people calling themselves web designers AREN'T anything of the sort. Just as so many of the glitzy but ultimately useless "template sites" are filled with broken inaccessible garbage thanks to the same delusional and nonsensical treatment of the subject.

Much less the gullibility of those who think they can magically buy an off the shelf template, cram their content into it, and magically see succcess….

Is the default value of FORCE_SSL_ADMIN documented?

I got stuck for a while trying to understand how comes the site I’m managing performs HTTP to HTTPS redirection since:

  • I enabled SSL connection
  • I didn’t put a .htaccessfile
  • I didn’t set the FORCE_SSL_ADMIN constant in wp-config.php

Once I figured out the redirection was performed by WordPress and not the HTTP server, I ended up triying to do a massive grep -r 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN' ./www, and I found this on default-constant.php (WordPress 5.7.2, line 328):

function wp_ssl_constants() {     /**      * @since 2.6.0      */     if ( ! defined( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN' ) ) {         if ( 'https' === parse_url( get_option( 'siteurl' ), PHP_URL_SCHEME ) ) {             define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true );         } else {             define( 'FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', false );         }     }     /* [...] */ 

If I understand correctly, if the constant isn’t set and the siteurl entry (apparently the URL site value set in Setting page of the dashboard) begins is of scheme HTTPS://, then FORCE_SSL_ADMIN is set to true.

I may have wrongly searched, but what I found led me to think siteurl has to be set in order to let the redirection works, which is not the case.

Is this default behavior (redirection according to the site URL scheme) explained somewhere in the official documentation?

Front end fails to represent correctly boxes


Sometimes my front end misrepresents some output typically involving associations. For instance

EmbedCode[CloudDeploy["hello, world"]] 

should produce

enter image description here

according to the documentation but in fact yields
