this is the cooking pot for meta issues, and that shouldn't change..
 
so maybe the better question would be to define what "site business" is (as in, hard rule) and then say 10 minutes (less) of discussion should be moved
 
@Vogel612 No worries. I can imagine it's hard.
 
@ARedHerring site business: questions and discussion pertaining directly to: questions, answers, comments and behaviour on codereview.se and meta.codereview.se
 
I think the actual problem with conversations is whether they can be interrupted for site business or not.
 
@Mast correct. here that wasn't the case.
 
4:02 PM
Every once in a while we're all joking around since there's no site business anyway. That's usually not a problem, since we can halt it instantly.
 
but I only realized that when I went trough to move stuff..
 
@rolfl How did you do yours? If you don't mind my asking.
@SuperBiasedMan It happens. He accidentally got a couple of mine (that aren't TDD related) as well. ;) @Vogel612 can't be perfect. :)
 
@EBrown "Simple" really ...... I defined a window in to the set, with a center point, and a zoom level. A zoom level of 1 is defiend to cover the whole set from -2.5->1.0 and -1.0->1.0
 
@Vogel612 is perfect enough for me. (ಥ﹏ಥ)
 
@rolfl I meant the actual algorithm. :P
 
4:10 PM
So, with that, I can "just"..... map that on to a 2D integer array, where the array lists the number of actual iterations computed as follows:
    public static final int[][] mandelbrot(final int pixWidth, final int pixHeight, final int limit, final Window window) {

        final double mandWidth = 3.5 / window.getZoom();
        final double mandHeight = 2.0 / window.getZoom();
        final double xStep = mandWidth / pixWidth;
        final double yStep = mandHeight / pixHeight;

        if (xStep < MINSTEP || yStep < MINSTEP) {
            return overZoom(pixWidth, pixHeight, limit);
        }

        final double left = window.getCenterX() - mandWidth / 2.0;
 
I wonder if my use of Point and PointF is slow.
 
@rolfl Interesting Java 8 usage
 
Oh holy f
Yeah, Point and PointF are sloww.
Got mine down to 695ms.
For that 4096x2048 image.
Or did I?
Nope, 1935ms still. I'm so confused now.
 
What I really like is my use of colors for the graphic..... here's how I assign the colors to each limit:
public static final int[] buildColors(final int limit) {
    final float root = (float)Math.sqrt(limit);
    return IntStream.rangeClosed(0, limit)
            .map(c -> limit - c)
            .mapToObj(c -> Color.getHSBColor((c % root) / root, 1.0f, (c / root) / root))
            .mapToInt(c -> c.getRGB())
            .toArray();
}
In essence, I spiral out from the center of the Hue wheel, with black representint the "limit".....
 
LOL So using xSquared + ySquared < twoSquared is actually faster than using xSquared + ySquared < 4.0.
 
4:15 PM
@EBrown Huh?
 
@skiwi Yeah, that's what I thought.
 
@EBrown what is twoSquared ?
 
@rolfl A float, which might be why it's faster.
 
exactly
declare the 4.0 as 4.0f
 
Yeah.
Yeah, same speed as with twoSquared.
I'm surprised your Java implementation is that much faster than mine.
 
4:19 PM
Why ... ? ;-)
 
It just seems wrong. Lol

I currently have to shift my brot to the right.
@rolfl :(
 
@rolfl I saw EBrown's Mandelbrot question for C#. Is your Java code also publicly available?
 
Remember though that @rolfl is an expert in optimization ;)
 
@skiwi That is true as well.
 
@MartinR Putting it up in a question soon.
 
4:21 PM
Though my code should actually be faster than his.
Because I don't calculate x * x and y * y twice.
 
I am using double throughout....
 
@rolfl I can use double if it makes you feel better? :P
Using double now, 1898ms.
 
What I'm saying is that maybe you have some implicit casts somewhere, or other type conversion problems...
 
@rolfl No, I think it's because I only have 6 cores at 2.8Ghz.
 
Technically I have 4 cores, with 8 threads
 
4:24 PM
Mine often feels like 2 cores and n threads.
Oh man so close.
I need a faster way to save images.
 
@Amrita Look, this is a community where users can ask constructive questions and help other fellow programmers around the world. And not argue on whether to answer a poor question or not. Your program was based on a single logic and purely logical plus not helpful to other users. That's why it was considered poor quality. I don't mind answering any type of questions. These questions must be asked on codereview.stackexchange.com and not on SO. If you are still having more algorithmic kind of doubts, I can give you my email. I'll be more than happy to solve it. — Mr. Robot 42 secs ago
 
Up to 2100ms.
But, that's with a properly centred image.
 
@Mr.Robot This question isn't actually on topic for Code Review since it's not working. CR is only for code working as intended. — SuperBiasedMan just now
 
Weird. Going from 256 chunks to 16 chunks increased speed.

Alright, time for a full test run of my accounts-filtering macro. First month's printout should be done in 10 minutes or so.
 
4:39 PM
@EBrown less context switches and a better caching for the cpu I'd randomly guess
 
@Vogel612 Yeah, I'm not certain why but it looks like the optimal number of chunks is numberOfCores * 2.
On my 6-core rig 12 has been the fastest routinely.
 
@EBrown Looks fine.
 
@Hosch250 I've a lot to add to that yet, though.
A few more examples/scenarios I want to cover.

Q: Mandlebrot Streams

rolflA recent Mandelbrot question (Hi @EBrown) in C# inspired me to build my own using the Java 8 parallel streams to implement the parallelism that's useful for computing each pixel value. The intention is to incorporate this in to a graphical interface that allows you to navigate and zoom in on the...

 
lol.. monkey typo spotted
 
That's good
Is it correct that every pixel in the Mandelbrot image can be calculated by itself?
If so, then I wonder if on the GPU it makes more sense to calculate this in a Fragment Shader or in a Compute Shader via CUDA or similar OpenCL
 
5:33 PM
Technically, the center of each pixel is mapped to a specific point in the cartesian space......
if that center point is determined to be in the mandelbrot set, then the whole pixel is "in".
To compute whether it is in the set the common way is to iterate through the computations to determine whether it is bound, or not.
If it escapes the bounds, then it is not in the set, and you record how many iterations it took to escape.
The color in the image relates to how many iterations it took to escape.... black is "it did not escape".
 
The pseudocode en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandelbrot_set#Escape_time_algorithm there doesn't seem to indicate that, but I may be reading it wrong
 
> A repeating calculation is performed for each x, y point in the plot area and based on the behavior of that calculation, a color is chosen for that pixel.
For each pixel (Px, Py) on the screen, do:
 
So the color picking is the hard thing to multithread?
 
Well, no... the hard part is that for coordinates in the set you may have to run the computation a "limit" number of times (we are using 1000).....
A coordinate that escapes quickly will be fast.
 
Okay, so length of computation depends on number of iterations
 
5:39 PM
And also the number of pixels.....
A detailed image will require a lot more computations.
 
But does it pose problems for multithreading?
Say you have N threads, if you make sure they are always busy calculating a pixel, then it will kinda balance out
 
I parallelized it on a row-by-row basis... each row is delegated to a thread.
 
But say, I go down the GPU route, then compute shaders with some memory fences that only release after all pixels have been calculated would probably make most sense
I should probably do it in C++, but the Java is strong in this one
Most computation will be in OpenCL language anyway
 
hardwarerecs.SE just hit private beta, we'll see how long it survives
 
@skiwi You can parallelize the computation in many, many ways. Each pixel is essentially independent.
A GPU seems like a good call. An issue is that for "real" mandelbrot generators you often have to go to coordinates that can't be expressed in the precision of double.
 
5:54 PM
You could build an array of pixel points, then use n threads to do the calculation.
 
@rolfl Pretty small it seems?
 
@rolfl That's... quite deep
I wish I had an Oculus Rift
Or maybe I wish I wouldn't
 
That's what she.... nevermind.

I wonder what it looks like watching that video on drugs
 
I'm actually quite curious now.
 
6:10 PM
90% of everything I've seen so far on the apple conf can be categorized under "fancy UI"
 
Is that all?
 
@JeroenVannevel 90% of everything from Apple can be categorized under "fancy UI"
 
Well you could skip ahead 7 minutes by talking to siri, so I'm giving them a few points for that
 
@EBrown 100% of 90% of everything from Apple can be categorized under "fancy UI"
 
This is the most boring presentation ever
 
6:11 PM
Apple is great, they claim to revolutionaize things by having just one button, but then add more... ;-) Still, people think their interfaces have 1 button.
Instead, they now have 4 hard-to-use buttons, and one easy one.
 
@rolfl The owner of the company I work for alleges his car only has 4 buttons.
But it doesn't, it has plenty more.
(I've seen inside it.)
Also, @rolfl, did you read the description on that video?
> Each frame was individually rendered at 640x480 resolution and strung together at 30 frames per second. No frame interpolation was used. All images were lovingly rendered by 12 CPU cores running 24/7 for 6 months.
 
6... months?
 
That's dedication.
 
Yes, that is interesting.... in a few weeks I will have access to >4000 cores and I need a distributed computational test to ensure they are all busy.......
 
I would have given up after about 20 minutes.
@rolfl LOL
 
6:14 PM
@rolfl "test"
 
I lie, actually, I will have access to >4000 hosts, and they each have 16 or 32 cores depending.

@rolfl Even better.
I need to get zooming working on my Mandelbrot generator.
Somehow, it does not work properly.
 
@rolfl think of all the bitcoins
 
ASIC will still win.
 
@rolfl ASIC?
 
6:16 PM
An application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) /ˈeɪsɪk/, is an integrated circuit (IC) customized for a particular use, rather than intended for general-purpose use. For example, a chip designed to run in a digital voice recorder or a high-efficiency Bitcoin miner is an ASIC. Application-specific standard products (ASSPs) are intermediate between ASICs and industry standard integrated circuits like the 7400 or the 4000 series. As feature sizes have shrunk and design tools improved over the years, the maximum complexity (and hence functionality) possible in an ASIC has grown from 5,000 gates...
 
Are there Mandelbrot ASICs?
 
@rolfl Ah.
This is such a hard thing...not sure why but my Mandelbrot will not scale correctly.
 
@rolfl burn them all and put them in FPGA
 
Math.... can be a pain.
 
@rolfl Yes.
Especially when I'm working with double values that are wrong.

@EBrown but there are always compromises between speed and size
 
@Caridorc Indeed. Though it did break one particular case of the question.
But the OP liked it, so I suppose it's fine?
 
and with the massive RAM avaible today, using a bit more of it for such a speed-up is a win

@Mast You could, I suppose.
Which would solve the issue, but add undue complexity.

@EBrown they are indeed a nice touch, as long as there's enough interest in them. People need to participate. I was a bit disappointed that I was the only one that implemented the Election challenge.
 
I started the election one, and so did @rolfl.
I just never finished it. I'll have to do that sometime, and post it.

Q: Data discrepancy between networkx and igraph graph creation

toyI'm trying to determine the performance of graph analysis. However, during the graph creation I notice some of the data discrepancy in the two libraries. But I'm not sure if I'm missing anything in the code. I have a database of all the twitter users with followees. Here's the example of data i...

Q: Winsock GET && POST Functions

My goal is to learn and incorporate current/latest C++ practices and become a better programmer overall. #include "HTTPRequest.h" /* This function initalized Winsock */ bool HTTPRequest::InitWinsock() { ...

Hey @Phrancis, I'm working on a new version of the decorator. It should be around in a little bit.
 
Sweet
I installed PyMongo on my PC, hoping to play around with it tonight
 
I just have to figure out why Python thinks it's calling an int object in the first place.
It'll have a new feature too.
It will display the local variables contained inside a function.
But not their values.
 
@EthanBierlein Implicit casting somewhere?
 
No, I don't think so.
I'm not sure Python would even do that anyways.

@Phrancis s/someone/you/ ?
 
@SimonForsberg I plead innocent!
 
grr
Stupid Python. Sometimes annoying Python.
The decorator works when applied to normal functions, but it just decides to fail on class methods.
Hmm, nvm.
I must have made my class wrong.
Isn't debugging fun?

Q: DSL design -- C DSL

Charles CooperI am trying to design a DSL for writing C. Here is my code as a github gist (Github does not allow me to have slashes in the filenames so I have used underscores instead): https://gist.github.com/charles-cooper/379d1702df2051b9c60c It depends on packages free and process. My goal is to make the...

 
@EthanBierlein It is. Especially when things just don't run.
My latest was forgetting an attribute, so something wasn't running in a certain use case that I was trying to add to the feature set.
 
Lol.
I figured out why my tests were raising an error.
Turns out one of the test methods had the same name as an attribute.
Which makes me wonder...
Does a language like C# know the difference between an attribute and a method?
Like if I had an attribute a, and a method a, would it be able to distinguish between the two?

Q: Function and method debugging decorator - Part 2

Ethan Bierlein This is a follow-up to this question. I've refactored my previous debugging decorator, and added a couple new features, and changed a few things. Here's a complete list of things that have changed: There is only one decorator, Debug, and it now supports functions, and class methods. Each...

@Phrancis ^^
Oh, and I've now put it into a Github repo:
