the "All times are GMT +/- n hours" at the bottom of the page should be sufficient and current

setting the profile time format is appealing though

  • GMT +/- n hours --
    yes, sorry, of course that will work
  • login every 5 minutes --
    not needed -- login once and never logout !!

well there I go thinking like wetware again
I'm always having to re-login on this forum, usually in the middle of composing a post
if the polling time were reduced to just under that timeout window
(I've been on this forum how long and I can't tell you what that timeout is)
and wget can keep the login allive (I believe it does via cookies) then
the g.r.emlin can work in zulu (UTC) all the time, and can even detect on polling
when a re-login is needed by checking the time format on each poll result
nice observation Pat

    suggestion -- let's meet every Sunday for a new game

Suggestion -- let's not meet every Sunday for a new game. Some of us prefer weekdays, maybe others weekends. Keep it random so everyone gets a turn with respect to convenience (and time zone).

g.r.emlin has been offline pending some tweaks to the state machine and betters docs for post #1
until a few more games have been played there will some fibbing in the "official" post w.r.t. time
there is some rest time included between the closed state of a previous game and
the start of the next
since this is www time I think it might be ok to just let the closing of one game determine
the start of the next
the open time would never be optimal for all players anyway, scheduled or not
in the long run random (but still announced ~8 hours in advance) open time
will wash into fairness for all players

if anyone knows how to delete private messages via wget(1) let me know
that is the last piece needed to allow players to submit patterns for future games
I already have it reading private messages, but the delete magic is elusive
(if you haven't done it, reverse engineering html <form> logic can be a fun puzzle to solve)

the next post will be a manually kicked final post for 1.5 game 1

gsf, the tasks you are willing to undertake never cease to amaze me.

I have one 2-cent suggestion though. Somewhere in the final "summary post" for each game, it would be nice if the pattern were shown in grid format.

For those not interested in the scoring stats, the best location IMO would be in the code-block of line-formatted puzzles ... using either a general X-grid or converting the first puzzle.

everythings related -- state based techniques learned here will be applied elsewhere

good suggestion
I dropped the 81 char X'd grid from the status and added a 9x9 X'd grid to the final tally
and edited the final tally a few posts back to show the change

I don't understand.

that text attempts to describe a tie -- its a little clunky
a tie requires two posts from two separate users, both with the same rating
the first one to make it in the forum gets the score, the second one is essentially ignored,
as long as it was posted within the time frame
2 minutes was chosen because of the default time stamp minutes truncation
(Pat showed how to avoid that), but 2 min seems reasonable
outside the two minute window the second post will get the dup penalty

ok, that's my debugging impatience showing
I bumped it up to 22+2 hours (22 idle + warning + 2 more hours idle)

changed to ER=floating-point-number

each of the times and puzzle constraints can be changed at one line of the code
so its not a pain tweaking them between games
(although the docs would require a manual edit)

Postby gsf » Thu Dec 13, 2007 7:16 am

ok, its about time to let g.r.emlin loose again
but it would be nice to have some dealer patterns from other players in the queue
(details on becoming a dealer in the first post in this thread)
that way g.r.emlin is out of the pattern aesthetics complaint loop
