Re: The 'Hello' Thread

Hiya guys. Soooo I was doing some research on lagrange points, and I thought "hey let's google 'gravity simulator' and see if I can make a lagrange point in some sim. To my pleasant surprise, the first result was Andy's sim! Then I thought, hey, I wonder what the folks at TTG have been up to... I ha...

These do sound interesting, I'll need to give them a shot when I can.

Re: Super duper recursive function

So basically: h(f, x, n) Equals f(x) if f(n) = 1, f(f(x)) if f(n) = 2 and so on and so forth? Here, I whipped this up in haskell. higgs::(Integer -> Integer) -> Integer -> Integer -> Integer higgs f x n = iterate f x !! (f n) It doesn't seem to work though, it isn't giving me the results you said it...

Re: Super duper recursive function

Sounds like a bit of a twist on the ackermann function?

Either way, sounds like a nice exercise in Haskell.

However, I can't quite understand it. I tried to code it to get a sense of it but I can't quite understand what we're doing here. So what does this function do then, exactly?

Re: The Fittest

Bug: When starting a new generation, the distance counter starts at a negative number (usually -3 to -5) instead of 0. Not only is this wrong (distance can't be negative), but it makes it hard to figure out how far the creatures are actually going. I think it's because it's not exactly distance as ...

Less and more space between the 'crests' and 'mounds' (this is how you speak scientifically right?) of the light wave makes its apparent frequency change?

I think that would be easy enough, provided Andy added some sort of textbox class.

Re: Priorities

I agree with Neal. Sounds relatively easy to pull off.

This would also make ARP's python magic easier to pull off I would assume.

EDIT: ARP pointed out this is my 404th post.

Witty comment not found.
