Re: Input data for Problem 59

The input data was changed earlier this year; the linked file starting "36,22,80,0,0,4,23,25,19,17,88,4,4,19..." is correct.

Re: Project Euler Style Sheet Update

Yeah, it's fixed now, cheers :D

One other very minor thing. The logged-in user isn't highlighted anymore* in fastest solver tables (like they are in awards/Eulerians tables).

*At least, I think they used to be highlighted here, but I could be imagining it... :lol:

Re: Project Euler Style Sheet Update

I like the new design too - thanks!

There's a small styling issue on the progress page with kudos for non-permanent posts:

Re: Some problem and user statistics

Yes, some very interesting statistics - thanks! Many very impressive scores, but I must say I was probably most surprised that somebody has managed to come top 50 in all but three of the tracked problems. Congratulations x22! One small thing: I think this must be a typo? I will end this post with th...

Re: Code optimization techniques

I have been doing a bit of reading since I last replied (eg. on Wikipedia ), so hopefully I have a better understanding now. I am still open to corrections! Fundamentally, as far as I understand it, statements (i.e. lines of code) are not put on the stack in this sense; subroutines (i.e. functions) ...

Haha, yes I feel like I did repeat myself a little but unfortunately it is quite late (or early :lol: ) here so I won't be able to edit it much tonight. The "rambling" nature perhaps tells me I am not familiar enough with the subject to be trying to explain it :D I am very much open to somebody else...

Re: Code optimization techniques

Thanks for a Fine Birthday Gift MHealy... You're welcome :D I may make some mistakes/incorrect technical descriptions when using "stack" and "stack frame" :oops: However, I think I can roughly explain the issue here.

Re: Code optimization techniques

Why does lookup[2] become 1 from the prior fib(0) call? It isn't set in the prior fib(0) call, it's set in the prior fib(2) call, but this call has only completed after the fib(0) which it called has completed . The second call to fib(1), where lookup[2] first appears as 1, is part of calculating f...

So which is wrong, the definition or the example?
The definition is wrong; the example values are correct. (Based on the expected answer.)

Re: New awards.

I would like to second utomaya's thoughts. Perhaps more explicitly than in just awards (not least because the two suggested awards are well beyond my reach :wink:), it would be nice to have some permanent record stored of the highest Eulerians total you have achieved; whether this is a public table,...

Re: Summer 2017 Website Update

@traxex: I've implemented the suggestion you made. It will now tell you the difficulty of the current problem, let you know your previous highest rated difficulty solved, and provide an appropriate message. For what it's worth, the difficulty of a problem is displayed when solving a "recent" proble...

Re: Problem 616

I also initially believed there were no creative numbers, so I understand your frustration, but I do not believe it would be right to spoil your discovery of why this is false by providing one (nor, I imagine, do the problem creators, as they did not give such in the problem description).

Good luck!

Re: Problem 595

Does "expected number of shuffles" mean that a 50% probability is reached. The problem states that S(2) = 1. If I'm understanding the problem correctly, two cards would be thrown in the air and picked up. If "one" was picked up first (50% probability) then the deck would be sorted. If "two" was pic...

Re: Summer 2017 Website Update

Well, you're doing a good job with it as far as I can tell! I have only once noticed an issue with the 'Dark' theme (ignoring my mistake just now), which I guess I should mention while we're on the subject. Now this really is the definition of a minor issue, and has nothing to do with the recent upd...

My apologies — CTRL + F5 fixed it (and the new 'Dark' highlighting is much nicer than the style I had cached on the languages page I must say!)

Re: Summer 2017 Website Update

Very minor detail: There is no highlighting on the 'Countries' page when using the 'Dark' theme. (There is highlighting on the 'Languages' page, but if I recall correctly something like this was already there before the recent update?)
