hi Jeo

I notice that the New members count is not incrementing. Stuck on 385

The previous bug about ERIC re-appearing seems to be repaired.

Its on 387.

It only updates every day or hour once when the cron jobs are executed.

hi Jeo
Yes, it is now OK on the new members count.
A new thing >>> the calendar today shows India v Aus (test). It is actually a 1-dayer, not a Test :p :confused: :rolleyes:

The post was a test, not the game.

K. I knew that, but could not resist.

I think my 'number of posts' has been stuck on 12 for ages.. I'll post this and see if it changes

Oh, no it went up.. strange. Maybe I do have a chance of catching up to Bill after all :uhoh:

Argh, now it's not working any more.. my posts in the non-chess section aren't registering.. is this because they don't officially count?

Yes, posts in non-chess do not go towards your post count!

The details in your signature line don't seem to be incrementing?
Is it going to converge to the real value of pi? In mysterious ways?

ps
I like this signature line much better than your previous.

The question is not if it will converge but HOW it will converge. My bet is it will converge with an order of 1.618... :D

Pi or Phi.
Its amazing what a h can do.

Another day has gone by and still the estimate of 3 for pi has not incremented. I still think there is something wrong with your formula of relying on 1 Kings 7:23, 2 Chron 4:2.
Can you appeal to a higher authority to have this reviewed? Or perhaps look up the answer for us in the back of the book; is there a section there with the answers?

ps....Took me a while to get your "My bet is it will converge with an order of 1.618... ".
I agree with Matt's post #14. :clap:

pps...I asked a programmer who works with me here in the office. He suggested changing Chron to CRON; he said something to do with you using an old version...don't know if this helps.

Here is my algorithm.

while TRUE
do
PI = 30 / 10;
done

Perhaps we should have a quality walkthrough.

I took your advise and checked out Revelations Ch 8. There are lots of number, especially the number 7, but no estmiate for pi that I could see. :(

As an aside the Secent root finding method actually does converge to the root with an order of convergence of 1.618... Also the phi allocation to this number is a relatively modern convention. Only around the last 100 years I believe.

$ crontab -l

Looks good to me. I particularly like the built in redundancy of the 0's. Could we build in more redundancy for further security?

No. My text was advice, not advise.
I expected a few 7's would be found. No clowns of course?

I am not getting this PHI reference, to be honest.

$ crontab -l
0 1 * * * export pi=30/10$


:eek: Now there is no need to talk dirty just because your formula has a bug. You might attract the attention of a moderator.

Well there is a first time for everything. ;) (NB deliberate ambiguity)

For homework you will have to find one of the schachlieber threads regarding the book, The Da Vinci Code.

We conducted a walk-through here in the office. Only one injury as a guy forgot to turn left at the pot-plant.

It was successful though. :clap:
We have found why your formula is not incrementing. When we checked the user requirements we found that the clients were looking for a replacement for one of those 10 'sermon on the mount' sentences. So of course it supposed to stay the same, day-after-day. :doh:
Apparently it is like one of those ink-blot test thingos; it is up to the reader to place his own interpretation on the sentence as a prelude to arguing some position on the BB. I believe the maker calls it a 'starter-pack'.

44 now. :)

The reason is posts in the Correspondence Matches forum and sub-forums do not contribute to your total post count. Post elsewhere and you should see your count increment.

PI??? Mmmmm Pie!!! That is how you estimate Pie? It is much bigger than that... and tastier! Drug will be able to illuminate you! Yes.... Drug's the answer for everything! :P

Thank you for clarifying that now.
