@Corbin That was about the time I got some great news--thanks to the "Gramm-Rudman" legislation calling for cuts in the size of the US military, I was going to be discharged from the Air Force a month earlier than originally expected.
 
That would indeed be very good news x.x.
 
4:11 AM
@JerryCoffin Funny, Iw was reading that paper, and it has this:
 
Yup--I remember that too. They were also holding hearings about what military bases to close around that time. Every senator had some really great sounding reason for closing all the bases the pentagon said should be, except one (that just happened to be in his district). Was truly hilarious to hear some of the excuses they came up with.
 
$6 mil to train one pilot sounds insane
 
When the planes now cost $1Bil, why?
 
hmm, good point
do they really cost that much though
thought it was more like $100 mil
let's see, what would be current back then
F15?
 
@DaggNabbit Depends on the plane.
@DaggNabbit Yes--along with F16, B1B, B52, FB11. Stealth fighters were new, but probably at least in testing by then as well.
 
4:27 AM
hmm, just read that an SR-71 cost about $250 mil a year to support
 
@JerryCoffin no tomcat?
 
tomcat was F-14 right
 
@Mat'sMug Not in the Air Force. Navy was still using F-14's, but starting to switch to F-18's.
 
@DaggNabbit yup
 
@JerryCoffin what were you flying?
 
4:30 AM
F-14s were retired around 1990 if memory serves (but my memory's pretty poor, and I never cared that much about the Navy's imitations of fighters anyway).
 
was my favorite in US Navy Fighter "flight simulator".. never managed to land it on a ship though
 
@DaggNabbit I wasn't a pilot.
 
ah, figures
too valuable ;)
 
Listen to Jamal ya'all. He is the top person at code review. — user0000000 2 hours ago

Eh, far from it, but he's a moderator so at least he's got that going for him. — BoltClock ♦ 5 mins ago
 
4:31 AM
@DaggNabbit Never occurred to me that I might even want to be a pilot, but even if I had wanted to be, it never could have happened (I'm quite near-sighted).
 
Nah, that'd be 200.
 
> B-2 Spirit: $2.4 billion
> The B-2 bomber was so costly that Congress cut its initial 1987 purchase order from 132 to 21. (A 2008 crash leaves the current number at 20.)
2.4 billion per plane.
 
ouch
hell of a price tag
@JerryCoffin I'd blame CRTs with crappy refresh rates
 
@DaggNabbit That'd be a pretty hard one to sell. I was wearing glasses when I was in fourth grade, at which time, my viewing of CRTs was also extremely limited (my dad didn't like TV, so we didn't have one).
 
damn... I'm glad my vision is still 20/20
no idea how
 
4:36 AM
^^^ me too....
I am better than 20/20 and don't deserve to be.
 
my parents both wear glasses
and have for a long time
as long as i can remember
 
@rolfl Far-sighted isn't necessarily "better".
 
@Jamal is Bolt trying to be rude or funny or what? That's a weird thing to say
he's usually a pretty nice guy
one of the more tolerable SO mods ;)
 
@JerryCoffin Let me rephrase that then, I can see further than most people I know, street signs, license plates, etc. I can read a book without stretching my arms, and can clearly focus on my shoulder.
The optometrist says there;s no degeneration, my vitreous is clear with mo clouding or suspensions.
I am fortunate.
 
@rolfl Yup--definitely sounds good.
 
4:44 AM
I have plenty of other problems though ... ;-0
And, I grew up looking at cathod-ray tubes, and reading in bad light, and playing rugby, and driving without glasses in the african sun. Oh, and rowing in the sun.
 
@DaggNabbit I don't really know. But I don't think being within the top 10 is considered "far from the top."
 
hehehe ... Jamal, you have less than half my rep, and I am not the top ;-)
 
@rolfl haha you're over-the-top
 
i assumed "top guy" meant something more like "boss"
 
I think that's what bolt was trying to say too.
and, rep here is fickle anyway.
 
4:49 AM
@DaggNabbit That'd probably be Tim Post or Pops. :-)
 
rep is not a measure of much of anythign on the internet.
 
the rep is a lie
 
Speaking of, I wonder if Pops is on holiday or something,
 
it's a measure of site activity
 
^^^ that
 
4:50 AM
who was the first CR mod?
 
Good question, and that would be Michael K, I think

does the security experts site want stuff like this?
 
hmm
 
If it's from the docs? I would think they'd want something was was at least a little original!
 
yeah, you'd think so
 
are the docs under CC-Wiki? (not that it makes any difference, just curious)
 
@Mat'sMug no, they provide a personal-use license

@Mat'sMug In other words, it should be deleted, not just closed.
 
@AlexL why is this one OT?
 
@DaggNabbit "Why doesn't X work?" sure doesn't sound topical to me.
 
His last words, "What's wrong?" Isn't that kind asking for a fix?
 
5:24 AM
idk... he knows what he thinks the code should do and wonders why it does something different
not quite the same as "wtf does this code do"
but yeah it's not really a review
maybe I'm just curious why it does that
 
@DaggNabbit True, he's not asking for "how can I make this faster" or anything
 
yeah, this would probably fit on SO
it really isn't a code review
i just don't know the answer so it seems like a good question to me ;)
but what if he had worded it like this:
"please review my code to test python's bitshift operation"
"i wrote this code to test the speed of pythons bitshift operation, and everything works, but i suspect the time it reports is inaccurate. Can I improve my code to get a more accurate report?"
 
might as well change it to "but I know (cough)suspect(cough) the time it reports is inaccurate"...
 
@DaggNabbit Why would it be inaccurate? If "everything works" then shouldn't it be as accurate as 2 + 2!?
Just working the other side here :)
 
lol, true
 
5:31 AM
playing on words won't cut it: the program doesn't do what the OP wants out of it.
 
Why do you say this code is awful? What about it looks bad to you? Like I said, I'm new at this and trying to learn. — user2395369 3 mins ago
 
yeah, but if he had worded it like that i bet it would have flew right under the radar
@Jamal answered :)
 
hmm
 
Edit to the question:
> This is the code I'm currently using
 
@Mat'sMug what about the shuffle question that came over from SO? That didn't do what the OP wanted out of it either, but we didn't mark it as OT, we pointed out the flaw...
it's hard to draw that line
 
5:34 AM
true
 
I agree, some question are hard to decide
 
in any case it doesn't seem to be in the spirit of a code review
 
I think that question could work on SO though.
 
can we send it over instead of closing?
i'd sort of like to see the answer
 
I'll ask an SO mod first.
 
5:38 AM
although it would be more practical to just run time python test.py but still

11:59 AM
Hey Simon ... I have a relatively fast process going already for the MineSweeper. I think it will solve the 16/16 in aabout a year.
3
 
@rolfl The 16/16 with all the 3s? A year? Nice, I guess... lol
 
I also think I can make it about ...... 2^100 times faster with a small change
 
Now that sounds more like it :)
With the same accuracy?
 
I fell asleep with my laptop last night, so, you're not keeping me up.
yes, same accuracy ('perfect' accuracy)
 
@rolfl I can tell you that the code I have is indeed faster than a year. Who knows, perhaps you'll end up with the same algorithm that I'm currently using... (or an even faster one?)
 
12:02 PM
I am not sure on my current performance trhough, so I can't be certain about the upcoming improvements
My code could be taking as long as 100 years, and as short as 100 days .... not sure ;-)
I did not run it long enough....
 
so let's see.. 2^100 is 1267650600228229401496703205376 and a year consists of 31536000 seconds, so you'll end up solving it in less than a nanosecond? That'd be impressive.
 
Mybe the original run time was ....1,000,000,000 years?
 
@SimonAndréForsberg "This one is broken."
 
@rolfl Understandably. Perhaps you should start solving simpler variants of it? With only 5 connected 3s or something?
@skiwi There are apparently way too many broken Java developers out there. Or, what do I know? Perhaps he's using JAVA.
 
Oh, I am solving the 4x5 2 and 2 version 'very fast' ... millisecond range.
 
12:05 PM
Yeah, JAVA is a bad technology, provides no library classes and no generics.
 
@rolfl Hold on, I gotta check how fast my code is on that one...
 
JAVA has a class system, upper class, elite class, poor class.
 
Also there are no guidelines with respect to coding style in JAVA
 
java also has a class system, fine ground, espesso, etc.
JAVA has libraries, but they are underfunded.
java has no libraries.
 
@rolfl OK, my code was faster than I expected for the 2's case... I also solve it 'very fast'.
	String[] input = {
			"___x",
			"_2_x",
			"_xx_",
			"__2_",
			"x___",
	};
That's more or less the input, right?

Q: Complex query to count votes with a redistribution system

Kristofer GisslénI've spent the last couple of evenings trying to build a system for redistribution of votes in a ranked voting system. I've finally come up with the model for redistributing surpluses from a candidate whose number of votes exceeds the threshold. I'm at the beginning of my learning curve and I'v...

 
Of course. First: In short this calculation only handles the redistribution of surpluses. It doesn't at this point calculate redistribution of eliminated candidates votes...
 
12:38 PM
OK. So in the first round, Candidate 1 has a one-vote surplus.
Then…?
 
Yes. Exactly. It calculates the threshold by summing all votes and dividing them by the number of seats (2 + 1) according to redistribution rules and then adds 1. The result is then rounded down to the nearset whole number.
 
monking!
@SimonAndréForsberg because I never bothered un-pinning it! ;) (and thanks!)
 
Threshold is 7. We agree there.
 
Then the surplus is removed from the winners votes (8) leaving us 1 to redistribute.
 
@KristoferGisslén Hmm... your name sounds quite Swedish... checking profile you are!! :D
 
12:41 PM
Now we grab all votes where the winner is ranked as number 1 (8 votes) and get all the votes for each second ranked candidate on those ballots.
 
@Mat'sMug Monking!
 
@KristoferGisslén - Out of interest, have you seen the software that StackExchange uses for its elections? openstv.org
 
We calculate the surplus ratio by dividing the winners surplus by its' total votes (1/8) = 0.125
And then multiply that ratio with each second favored candidates votes on the winners ballots...
 
Agree so far. Of the ballots where Candidate 1 is the first choice, 4 are for Candidate 2, 1 is for Candidate 3, 2 are for Candidate 4, and 1 is for Candidate 5. Eight altogether.
 
Yes @rolfl. I have, but I want to create my own - expanding my learning curve. ;)
Correct @200_success. Now we add that surplus to their votes in the first round.
 
12:45 PM
So, Candidate 2 gets a +4/8 bonus, Candidate 3 gets +1/8, Candidate 4 gets +2/8, Candidate 5 gets +1/8.
 
Exactly. :)
 
That's what I interpreted to be the "redistribution". What's your definition?
 
Definition? In what sense? :)
 
I would say that the redistribution for the first round is…
-1 for Candidate 1, because that's the surplus.
 
12:49 PM
Then +4/8 for C2, +1/8 for C3, +2/8 for C4, +1/8 for C5.
 
And 0 for the candidate 6
 
But your query has +1/8 for C2, +2/8 for C3, +4/8 for C4, +2/8 for C5.
 
Yeah... that's because +4/8 for C2 is his/hers number of votes as second favored choice... that number is only used while finding the candidates to redistribute to. The actual value must be what they had at the end of the last round. Since this is the first round it must be their original vote count... am I wrong?
 
So, explain how you arrive at +1/8 for C2, +2/8 for C3, +4/8 for C4, +2/8 for C5?
Any one example should be enough.
 
I've used this link as a guide: fairvotemn.org/book/export/html/1413
I'll try to explain...
:)
In the first round each candidate gets C1 - 8, C2 - 1, C3 - 2, C4 - 4, C5 - 2, C6 - 3
 
12:56 PM
OK, that's the "raw" vote.
 
Candidate C1 is a winner. Candidates C2, C3, C4 and C5 are ranked as second favorable an C1s ballots
 
Of the ballots where Candidate 1 is the first choice, 4 are for Candidate 2, 1 is for Candidate 3, 2 are for Candidate 4, and 1 is for Candidate 5. Eight altogether.
 
A surplus ration of 0.125 is redistributed to thier votes: C2 - 0.125 * 1, C3 - 0.125 * 2, C4 - 0.125 * 4 and C5 - 0.125 * 2
Giving us 7, 2.125, 2.25, 4.5, 2.25 and 3 heading on tho round 2
 
Oh, you're proportioning the surplus by the votes they got in the first round.
I was proportioning them according to the second-choices of those who voted for C1.
 
Yeah. Or actually to their votes in the previous round. Since this is the first round it will be to their first round votes. :)
Yeah, I figured you did. This is a mess I can tell you. ;) I've thumbled several times while trying to understand the voting structure.
I mean stumbled... :)
 
1:03 PM
But your second example seems to disagree with you.
In Round 2, the table with the orange header.
A 666-vote surplus is to be redistributed.
 
Hmm... you're right...
 
If the surplus is to be redistributed according to the proportion of first-round votes, then Candidate B would benefit most from the redistribution.
 
It seems as I do have misunderstood the calculations...
Yeah, I really have. You are right there.
 
Or maybe there's more than one right way to do it?
 
Not only do I add the surplus to the previous round (which is correct) I multiply the ratio with the previous votes which is wrong - it should be multiplied with second favorable vote count...
No, you're absolutely correct in this. I'm wrong.
 
1:09 PM
Wikipedia is consistent with your link and my interpretation.
The single transferable vote (STV) is a voting system designed to achieve proportional representation through ranked voting in multi-seat constituencies (voting districts). Under STV, an elector has a single vote that is initially allocated to their most preferred candidate and, as the count proceeds and candidates are either elected or eliminated, is transferred to other candidates according to the voter's stated preferences, in proportion to any surplus or discarded votes. The exact method of reapportioning votes can vary (see Counting methods). The system provides approximately pro...

@KristoferGisslén - Forgive me for suggesting this ..... but....
this is not really the sort of problem best solved in the database.
 
This is a problem that I would recommend pulling in to a more structured language, and going from there... (Java, C++, whatever.)
 
I know @rolfl. Acutally I should do it some other way but boy is this a learing experince for me. :)
 
1:16 PM
I disagree. SQL is a fine solution.
… though maybe not if you want to do multiple rounds recursively in the same query.
 
^^^ that..... although a cursor is what I would use as well.
I have done a lot of SQL work in the past 'on the database', and there are database side tools that can do this... in this case, a stored procedure with a cursor/loop.
This problem though has gone beyond what I would consider a readable SQL query
 
Well to that I must agree. It's insane... :) I need to have a look at my query again to solve this. I'll get back to you guys.
Very much thank you!!
 
What part of my query isn't readable? =)
 
You're welcome.... take my advice with some salt. I think everyone needs to understand the limitations of the tools, and the limitations of themselves. To do that, you need to occasionally exceed them
I have written some insane SQL queries.... and many of them are not readable....

@skiwi I know, let's make a TCG MMORPG! ;)
@Mat'sMug Sounds like you're really going to miss that job :)
 
@SimonAndréForsberg Wait... how would that look like? :P
 
@skiwi No idea. I've dropped that thought already, before I even started thinking about it :P

Smart choice :P

All those 35 games were played by my "bot"

Q: Feedback on first Python script? (novice programmer)

A: Is my code nice and neat for a Tic-Tac-Toe board times 4?

Mat's MugI've just installed KTurtle for Windows, and ran your code. I never thought a turtle could be so frantic! KTurtle is ..entertaining to see in action!

HugoRuneI want to calculate the ratio of intersection between two intervals; the length of the intersection divided by the length of the shorter interval. So if two intervals do not intersect, the ratio is 0, if one interval is fully contained in the other, the ratio is 1, otherwise it is a number betwe...

I want to combine AI with Android with a game and with either text based or very very simple graphics...
