Day Ten - Folding Month 2018

Right guys, After doing yet more tests we have noticed yet more issues, these are being caused by the week one sheet and there is a good chance I will just rebuild the entire thing using our scripts on the historic data we hold, but today is Armistice Day so I need to push this out asap then I can join the family. So pinch of salt to be taken.      We have Tomerrs in first place with 62.8 million, The king is in second with 53.8million, Jakkuh is in third with 39million. _Rlocke is in 4th with 34.4 million, Gorgon in 5th with 26million, Dissitesuxba11s is in 6th with 24.9million, Ben Quigley is in 7th with 24.2million, Porina is in 8th with 21.7million, Palespartan in 9th with 18.8 million and in 10th we have Cereal5 with 16.7million points.    Tomerrs is still looking undefeatable sat up on his throne, The king is enjoying a lull as no one can even come close to challenging him either,  Jakkuh isn't looking as secure as he once was with _Rlocke push hard and its paying off for him. Gorgon is still enjoying his Ray tracing goodness from what I can tell. In the end there's no major upsets today, will that change over the next few weeks well anything is possible right? So keep watching this space, and most importantly, KEEP FOLDING!     I'm aware of sure issues with the totals here, the totals are what we get our ranks from so bare with me as I will look into fixed as soon I can. Its to do with the way the script orders the participants vs the way google thinks alphabetical order works when symbols are included. We know the issue, and, really we know the fix, we just don't Want to be rebuilding the entire sheet for week one, but it seems like that is the only way it will work.   The overall team has seen yet another boost up to 181million points.   Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event,   Happy folding,   Ben.

In 4th place we have _Rlocke with 25.9million, in 5th is Dissitesuxba11s with 23million. Gorgon finds himself in 6th with 23million then we have Ben Quigley with 21.7million.

DW225 is in 19th withdrthinder right behind with only 100k seperation.    It has to be said the mighty @Tomerrs looks undefeatable by this point,  The king looks to be pulling ahead of Jakkuh, @_Rlocke has really put those new cards to work and finds himself challenging Jakkuh for the podium. @Ben Quigley is managing to hold onto his top10 spot for the time being. @palespartan looks capable of pushing up a place or two if everything keeps the way it is now.     Guys, With the points being collated automatically we may see some strange numbers for the first day or so while we work through it, please bare withis, if you think your TOTAL points are wrong please get in contact, otherwise enjoy the post and keep trucking along.    The overall team has seen yet another boost up to 145million points, lets keep trying to get the most out of our rigs we at this rate we are looking at a 1,000,000,000 point week(as tracked by EOC).   Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Thanks for everyone who is involved in this event, it really should make you all proud.

Day Eight - Folding Month 2018

I'm just validating the numbers by hand today to make sure the script that automatically does the hard work is doing it right as I noticed a few that were wrong. Report will be available ASAP.    Update 2: This is taking longer than expected, I'm going to drop the production values here, ill get around to fixing the issues ASAP but IRL things need sorting right now.

Day Seven - Folding Month 2018

First thing sorry about the delay, with the preparations for automation we made a few mistakes that needed fixing before the update, I am aware of one issue that is still persisting and that is the fact that 2-5 people will not be on here that have been on past ones, if you are concerned just create a message with me and @Gorgon. But, please, try not to worry we are working the problem. These numbers will be off by 3 hours, as we have switched from EOC servers to using straight Stanford data. So you will see 12.5% more point production today than realistically you achieved, but all totals are correct. Once again don't worry about it.    Now with the disclaimers and excuses out of the way, onto the juicy juicy stats...   Sitting on the throne is still Tomerrs, with 37.7million points! The figurehead of old, King Poet is in second, with 33.9million points, Jakkuh is in third with 26.6million. Dissitesuxba11s is in 4th with 17.3million points and Ben Quigley has managed to stay in the top 5 with 16.8million points. Gorgon is in 6th, with 16.6million. He is followed by the fishy Porina, with 15.3milion, _Rlocke is 1.5million behind him. Palespartan finds himself 9th place with 13million points, Cereal5 rounds up the top 10 pack, with 10million points.  Invaderzim117 is holding onto the 11 spot with with just shy of 9million. DUW1G1T, TVwazhere, D_Newb and Yabdat are all fighting for places 12-15 with around 7.5million points. Theres then another gap of around 1million points have opened up and we have another grouping. RollinLower, Willhemmings, CagedAnimalz and Stilnman all have around the 6.5 million mark and are fighting to push themselves higher up the top 20!   Can anyone even begin to challenge the great @Tomerrs, Our only hope is @jakkuh_t with his corporate sponsor behind him, Its looking like @Ben Quigley will be losing the top 5 spot at this rate, @_Rlocke looks like he could be a challenge to the king at this rate. @palespartan needs to be careful and look back, as hes going to be forced out of the top 10 with the way things are set at the moment.        Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Happy folding, thanks for getting involved! We managed to hit that over 100million target I set you lot, with 106,730,030 Points!!! in one day, for just the guys involved in the event, truly amazingly well done!   Ben.

Day Six - Folding Month 2018

Well, after another all nighter, validating data, sorting out tables and getting ready for automation I'm here. This is just a PSA for the new guys here, the folding team is a small close knit community, so here's a few things I'd like you all to keep in mind. It doesn't hurt to say thank you, if someone has genuinely helped you out don't forget to drop a reaction on their posts, help others where ever you can and finally we are a team first and always.    Now onto the juicy horse-race Folding ranks!    The king has fallen, ALL HAIL @Tomerrs, Holding first position with a lead of 20,000 points! We have the dethroned king in 2nd, and Jakkuh is closing on him, but with a lead of 900k the king could still keep hold of the number two slot if he acts quickly. Dissitesuxba11s is in 4th with14.2million points but Ben Quigley looks like he will catch up and retake the number 4 slot. Gorgon is in 6th place with 13.2Million points, and porina is 100k behind that mark. Palespartan is in 8th with 10.0million points. Then comes the 1.5million point gap that is opening up with cereal5 having 8.5million. _Rlocke is in 10th with 8million points.  Another gap has opened up between 10th and 11th, with Invaderzim117 falling 1.5million short of the pack at the top. TVwazhere is in 12th with 6.3million, D_Newb is in 13th with 6million and DUW1G1T has 5.6million. CagedAnimalz and Rollinlower both have 5.4million. WillHemmings, Powelljl and Stijnman all are fighting to stay inteh top 20 with around 5.2million each. RAS_3885 sits in 20th, with his 300k point gap nehind melting away he is in danger of losing his spot in the illustrious top 20.   If your numbers seem off, or you cant find yourself on the list then please do get in contact with me and I will double check on your data, we currently have 360 sign-ups but only around 260 have produced any points so far for the event.    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   If you do not have a registered folding name with Stanford by the next update your details will be removed from the event.    Also, can you all give yourself a pat on the back because together, we produced  93,483,405 points yesterday!   Happy folding, thanks for getting involved and if you lot feel like trying to squeeze out a little more production from your rigs we could push the event over 100million points a day!   Ben.

Day Five - Folding Month 2018

Things have been mostly quiet out on the folding front, although there have been a fair few rank changes, these were all expected and not many surprises have been seen. The question is, is this the start of ranks being solidified for the most part. We the days go on we should start some see some real performance bands appearing, where gaps open up in the ranks showing the different level of hardware we have running in the event! Guys, do try to remember we are not only folding for personal glory but also for the good of the team! VIVA LA LINUS!    The king is managing to hold onto first place by the skin of his teeth with 22million points, But both Tommers and Jakkuh who hold 2nd and 3rd are gunning for him with higher production rates. In 4th we have Dissitesuxba11s with just about 12million points, followed by Ben Quigley with 11.8million. Porina is just 600k behind in 6th position and Gorgon is tailing him closing with 10million points! Palespartan is still in the running with 9million points. Cereal5 in holding onto 9th position with 6.4million points, Invaderzim117 is over 1million points behind with 5.3million. The top ten is looking rather fleshed out, now onto the other guys. TVwazhere is looking strong in 11th, but D_newb is not far off that mark with 5million points. _Rlocke is in 13th with 4.6million, Cagedanimalz is only 100k points behind him, followed by RollinLower in 15th  with only 50k points difference. Willhemmens is on 16th with 4.2million, 17th is still held by Stijnman with 4.1million and RAS has held onto 18th with a straight 4million. 19th and 20th, Powelji and DUW1G1T are separated by only 10k points.    So, in a twist of events the King looks poise to fall, not only to the number two spot, but also even further to the bottom of the podium. Both @jakkuh_t and @Tomerrs have the production to topple the oppressive regime of royalty and install themselves as figureheads.  @Dissitesuxba11s has managed to keep 4th by knocking @Ben Quigley down a peg, but is he going to take that lying down? @porina Is in 6th and the is the last of the over 2million points per day pack, Gorgon is trailing that pack with 1.6 million production. @palespartan Has once again closed the gap between him and gorgon by small amounts, But remember guys, this is a marathon, not a sprint. @Cereal5 Is looking comfortable in front Invaderzim, but there are threats form lower down the board who have the power to nudge them from the top ten pack, if only they have the stamina to maintain! @_Rlocke and DUW1G1T are ones to watch over the next few days to see if they can keep up the pace.      If your numbers seem off, or you cant find yourself on the list then please do get in contact with me and I will double check on your data, we currently have 360 sign-ups but only around 200 have produced any points so far for the event.    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Once again, if you don't have a valid folding name with Stanford by the time entries close, which is 23:59GMT tonight, your records will be deleted in our database.    Thanks for participating in the event!    Happy folding,   Ben.

Day Four - Folding Month 2018.

We have seen some movement over the last 24 hours or so and its been quite exciting, today we folding over 85 percent of LTTs total production! Also guys due to the sheer number of inactive names on out database, if you haven't registered your folding name with Stanford by the time the application form closes(November 6th, 23:00GMT) then you will be removed from the database and will no longer be able to participate.    And, the standings so far are as follows, The King is managed to hold onto his throne today with 17.3million, but looking a little further down the table Tomerrs has come out of no where to take the number two slot, it seems hes gunning to knock the king over and take his place, he may only have 10million points but over the last 24 hour he produced 7.6million. Then we have Ben Quigley with 9.4million at in third, there is definitely Some threads below him ready to strike. Dissitesuxba11s has managed to hold onto 4th despite all the movement around them. Followed by Porina with 3.1million, theres only 100k separating the two at the moment. Jakkuh is in 6th with 8million and it looks almost certain he will be pushing his way up the board just a little more. Gorgon and Palespartan have been knocked down to 7th and 8th, with 7.2 and 7million points there's only a little ground between them. After the number 8 spot there's some real lagging behind happening, Cereal is holding 9th with only 4.6million points, but TVwazhere isn't all that far out with 4.4milion of his own. After the top 10 another opening can he seen, 11th only has 3.8million putting the distance at 800k points. 12th and 13th are right up there too, with only 200k separating the three positions. Stijnman is at 3.5million, RollinLower is at 15th with 3.3million. RAS_3885 in 16th with 3.2million, Willhemmings follwing up with 3.16, number 18 and 19 is  Powelljl and millerpanda with 3million each. Then we have OpenCircuit74 in 20th holding on with only 2.7million points.   There are some real threats to @King Poet on the table, and it will be interesting to see if he even has any more gas in the tank to push harder, Then we have @Tomerrs who blew away the competition and produced an incredible 7.6million points in the last 24 hours. @Ben Quigley has manged to hold onto third, but it seems this will be short lived looking at the table around him. In a surprise twist we have seen @porina drop in the rankings, and in sixth we have Jakkuh. Palespartan has yet again gained some ground in respect to Gorgon, But a little birdie tells me Gorgon has an ace up his sleeve. @James has dropped out of the top 20, and you have to ask, why is it Jakkuh was allowed to just come in and steal his light...   If your numbers seem off, or you cant find yourself on the list then please do get in contact with me and I will double check on your data, we currently have 310 sign-ups but only 186 have produced any points so far for the event.    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Once again, if you don't have a valid folding name with Stanford by the time entries close your records will be deleted in our database.    Thanks for participating in the event!    Happy folding,   Ben.

Day Three - Folding Month 1018.

I pulled an all-nighter night before last to get the spreadsheet fixed, So last night I crashed and slept like a baby, the spread should be fixed, some of today's points production may seem high for a few people but that was to bring them in line with their real total points. The week column is perfect, thus the most important data is not exactly as needed. The reports should be completely accurate from now on unless mistakes are made. Just as a side note the event members have produced 79% of LMGs total point production over the last 24 or so hours.    Now with that out of the way lets look at the standings so far, there have been some changes happening over the last day or so. The King himself is remaining comfortably in his throne sat at the top of the rankings approaching 14million points, Porina has come in to steal the number two spot sitting there with 6.9million followed closely by BenQ with 6.8million. Dissitesuxba11s has managed to increase production and is now finding themselves in forth with 6.6million. Gorgon is still holding 5th place with 5.6million, but Palespartan has gained a little ground on him now with 5.2 million. Jakkuh seems to be making a challenge to the king himself with a showing of 4.1million points produced in his first day competing alone, hes currently sitting at 7th. There's a notable gap between 7th and 8th, TVwazhere and Tomerrs are fighting it out for 8th place with 3.4 and 3.2million points respectively, but Cereal5 is only behind by around 30k points.  After the top 10 there's a fair gap building up, with 400k between Invaderzim117 and 10th place, Cagedanimalz is pulling in with only around 100k points separating him from 11th.  Stijnman and D_Newb are sitting right on top of each others with 2.6 million each, Its a close one, with only 10k separating the two we're practically splitting hairs.  15th-17th places are all slip by no more than 50k and James sitting in 18th seems to have been knocked down a peg from his supposed ally Jakkuh coming into the frey. Powelljl is on 19th with 2.1million but he has willhemmens stepping up to him fast and hard!   Will the king keep his throne from the threat of @jakkuh_t, can @Ben Quigley regain his place as second on the podium, or is this the start of a long downfall. @Dissitesuxba11s has some some real aggression to get into forth, But is it enough to secure one of those elusive podium places. @Gorgon may seen safe and secure but looking at the production rates of some lower on the board the question has to be asked, can he weather the storm, not only is @palespartan challenging him on every corner we have the latest entries coming in trying to make a name for themselves. @Tomerrs is also firing himself up the ranks like a cannon ball, but does he have the stamina to go all the way. Then we have @leadeater and @DUW1G1T both producing over 1.2million points but are currently sitting pretty low in the rankings. I'm expecting to be mentioning their names more often in the coming days.    If your numbers seem off, or you cant find yourself on the list then please do get in contact with me and I will double check on your data, we currently have 310 sign-ups but only 186 have produced any points so far for the event.    Please remember we have minimum participation requirements, these are 100k points, 15WUs, and 15 days of having activity over the course of the whole month.   Thanks for participating in the event!    Happy folding, Ben.

Day Two - Folding month 2018

Well guys, the second day has passed and oh what a day it has been! The spreadsheet is broken currently and I am single-handedly doing a validation of all entries manually. That is points and work units, for over 220 participants, for 3 days worth of data. It is taking some time, but we will get there! so, DISCLAIMER: I am pretty sure there are some errors in this update, the sheer flood of new applicants overwhelmed the spreadsheet we are using and well it broke... just a little. Expect this problem to be resolved before next update!   The ranks you see here are overall. We have King Poet in first place with 9 million points, he's steaming ahead and leaving the entire competition in this dust, following on is Ben Quigley with 4.6 million points tailed closely by Porina, who has 4million. Dissitesuxba11s is up there too with 3.9 million knocking Gorgon down to 5th place with 3.7 million followed with a small gap by Palespartan at 3.3million.  Then TVwazhere and Cerael5 are fighting for 7th place, TV is holding on for the time being but with a difference of only 50k points it wouldn't take much to knock him down a peg. Another chase is on with Invaderzim pushing his way up the rankings gaining an impressive 6 places and putting himself in the top 10, he seems to be gunning for CagedAnimalz with only around 100k points separating the two. Then below the top 10 we have D_Newb, MillerPanda, RAS_3885, Stijnman and RollonLower all with around 1.5 million points, the difference between 10th and 15th is only 100k so I'm expecting to see some serious shuffling here. James seems to have a comeback putting in a worthy performance and pushing himself right up to Powelljl giving a seperation of only 20k points.  Another skirmish has broken for 18th with  wONKEyeYEs only 20k points ahead of Blond. and for 20th we have Opencircuit74 right at the back of the top 20 with only 100k points to push into 19th. imreloadin is right behind the top 20 pack with only a 30k points between him and 20th. 
That covers the top 20 spots on todays results, the entire rank list can be seen below, by this point we can be pretty sure @King Poet is going to be close to impossible to knock of the number one spot, but, can @Ben Quigley hold onto second with @porina steaming towards him firing on all cylinders FPUs. will @Dissitesuxba11s managed to push up into the podium spots? How about @Gorgon, things are not looking great for him holding onto 5th with @palespartan pilling on the pressure! And then we have @James, giving us a somewhat better performance for today, pushing himself up into 17th.

Day One - Folding Month 2018

On the first day of the event we have seen four people take more than half of all the points for the event members. We have, rather expectly, King Poet in first place with just shy of 5 million points, with a sizeable gap to myself with 2.3 million.. Porina and Gorgon coming up in the next group both just a little over 1.8 million. Dissit and Palespartan are both hovering around the 1.5 million point mark for today. Givintvt, TVwazhere and stilnman are coming in at the 1 million point park. RollinLower seems to not have made his mind up in he wants to move further up into the top 10 sitting at a comfortable 950k. And that concludes top 10 watch! Thank you all for participating and thanks for reading, the shear number of you guys involved has really astounded me, to the point where I’ve completely had the change the way we track and comment on your results. But the real question is, who can take the heat? Can @King Poet keep on screaming ahead without dropping the protein. Can @Ben Quigley hold onto number two or will @porina come and smoke him out. @Gorgon is right up there and is poised to try to push into the top three but does he has the steam, er, silicon for such a maneuver. @palespartan is so close to getting into the top 5 if only he could push his rigs that little bit harder. But, there's only one way to find out, and that's to read on tomorrow!  Also guys, don’t forget we are keeping a close eye on Mr Laz0r @Jamesas he is the only LMG staff to join I guess we should give him so special attention, at 670K he hasn’t impressed so far. But he has the chance to really make a splash if he can thing on his feet and convince Linus to help him out, we will see how it goes over the month!  Rank Forum Name Points 1 King Poet 4737567 2 Ben Quigley 2276549 3 porina 1868411 4 Gorgon 1814512 5 Dissitesuxba11s 1533616 6 Palespartan 1499131 7 givingtnt 1196262 8 TVwazhere 1157779 9 Stijnman 1018860 10 RollinLower 947603 11 D_Newb 874420 12 Cereal5 869978 13 MillerPanda 830105 14 RAS_3885 780689 15 CagedAnimalz 764778 16 Invaderzim117 762627 17 Opencircuit74 734226 18 James 673793 19 Powelljl 655890 20 wONKEyeYEs 638558 21 imreloadin 633773 22 Blond 613130 23 ShadowForce 610258 24 willhemmens 492478 25 Egg-Roll 487497 26 cTurtle98 484758 27 OJTheAviator 467531 28 MiggidyMike 440966 29 Imbellis 440539 30 Wyrd 424429 31 TheRedFox 353845 32 WoTpLaYeR489 342079 33 Lemtea 336865 34 descrom93 310214 35 Ziffer777 273865 36 Ryan_Vickers 265716 37 Elessog 246988 38 Garfieldyoulazycat 233513 39 Firefly2 207486 40 SansVarnic 198415 41 blackmage1134 165426 42 TristonTwenty7 145493 43 WhisperingKnickers 142230 44 Metallus97 129506 45 VKR-13 124999 46 chupacabra 115625 47 vexeran 94244 48 Kiyometa 92308 49 Wiggitywack 92014 50 Jodaka 81678 51 Daber97 80731 52 Razor1320 78854 53 DatOneLefty 77062 54 talex95 52320 55 DeMichel93 49005 56 Ockram 48882 57 2poreAIR 46971 58 FloRolf 46194 59 LiquidMotionz 46154 60 kting15 43907 61 Gargone77 40070 62 Somehumblegamer 31845 63 Redzuzu 26552 64 seoz 22057 65 cammyb13 12755 66 MSVSora 10204 67 KBenMcDova 8750 68 kelvinhall05 4721 69 Tsunoda Acreo 3958 70 Nahadoth 3125 71 SuperShermanTanker 2969 72 DeBeard 2500 73 bugboy94 1250 74 Aranwe 1014 75 Aranwe 1014 76 Auerhahn 1010 77 That_Dutch_Guy 856 78 fipsy1990 123 Just so you all know if you name doesn’t appear above then you haven’t produced any points for TeamLTT since the start of the event, if you think this is wrong please drop me a PM with your EOC Link and we can try to find the issue!

Why are physics engines tied to frame rates?

I came across the news about Fallout 76 has a problem: you can edit a value in one of the ini files which affects the frame rate, and then the physics engine is tied to that, with the end result is players are able to move faster simply by rendering more frames. Obviously this is a problem but why do developers design the physics engines around a frame rate? You need to have a rate of change. Frame rate is a convenient source of what the rate is.   A lot of equations in physics are over time. Meaning they measure something that happens between two points in time. Take velocity: it's the distance between two points in space divided by the time it took for something to travel that distance. Acceleration is the rate at which an object changes its velocity between two points in time. The problem with physics simulations in games (and perhaps in general) is that everything being calculated is being calculated for an instant of time. You might be able to know the input parameters, like how fast an object was going, but you won't know if the velocity will change in the future even if you knew all of the factors that are affecting it because you need one more thing: how long is the object going to be subjected to these effects? Or to put it in another way it's like asking this: I have an object going 5 meters per second, it's experiencing a acceleration of -1 m/s^2, what's its velocity going to be? I don't know, because I don't know how long this object will be experiencing said acceleration.   What Bethesda is doing though is they likely have a reasonably frequent enough rate at which the physics simulation is run at. But they also cap the frame rate to that rate as well. This may also cap the input sampling rate. So why would they do this? Because rendering faster than the rate at which the physics are simulated would mean rendering extra frames that don't add any new information. This may have been a design choice, because other developers don't seem to care like what Ubisoft does with Assassin's Creed: The cloth runs at "half frame rate" because the physics engine for this isn't ran as fast the graphics rendering is, and so you have this weird effect with the cloth seems to move at a disjointed rate.   So when you uncap the frame rate in a Bethesda game, you're effectively telling the game to run the physics engine at a faster rate, which is great!... except for the fact that if everything else about the game was designed around this one value and affects how everything else behaves. Really the solution to Bethesda's problem is to not make this value changeable in the first place. Or I guess, you know, design a physics engine that isn't dependent on frame rates.

T-0 Days

Well the time has come, the time to work out if all of your efforts, the tinkering, the overclocking and the system building was worth it, the time where you rigs will be tested, tested with long up-times, blistering heat, number crunching every minute of every day. For this next month they are nothing but slaves to the folding gods, laying down their lives on the line for the betterment of mankind. So, go forth noble machines, and demonstrate just how brilliant you are!  And a final thank you to all that have entered and are making this such an exciting event, the question stands, who will emerge as our glorious Folding Fanatic, who will crash and burn, who will trod along right the through and who will fall victim to malfunctions, downtime and electricity costs? Only time will tell...   With that said, bathe in the heat of your system, be prideful and hear them purr. For, as of this moment we are folding for honour and GLORY(and bragging rights).   Happy folding and good luck,   Ben.

T- 2 days(or round about), Folding month 2018

Well guys, the time is closing in, The rigs are purring and we have hit 137 sign ups so far. This will be a short post but I just want to thank you all for getting involved so far. You are all amazing, donating your power, time and hardware for a good cause. Together we will work towards a brighter future With more badges where we can more easily fight the diseases of today. Get yours rigs running the best they can and churn out points like you've never churned out before. And, for those that are folding for the first time welcome to the team, we appreciate you getting involved! The team overall have seen yet another spike in production, we are on target to hit a 55million point day today! Great going guys.    Have a good day/night/evening/morning and keep yourselves warm with all that silicon,   Happy Folding,   Ben.

T- 3 day

Well there have been yet another bunch of people join up, we are at one off from hitting the big 130! Thank you everyone who has shown support, the team has exploded, the production of the team even more so. You are all getting right into the last few days of tinker time, give your rigs the spit shine they need and make she she keep on purring! We are on track for our first 50mil point day in many years thanks to the effort of you guys and the machines you have at your disposal. Give yourselves a pat on the back for just how well you have all mobilised to earn more badges help support the community. We have seen quite a lot of movement in the bottom half of the top 20 producers but the top half for the most part have remained mostly static, will that change, will someone come in and knock LedendaryPoet from the top spot? Only time will tell! Don't forgot to follow the thread/Blog if you haven't done so yet to keep getting yourself these wonderful updates.   Happy folding folks,   Ben.

T- 3 days(or round about), Folding month 2018

Well it is that time again folks. We are now up to 114 sign-ups, damn it is spectacular to see, the only downside is the amount of work I have taken on.  Thanks to Gorgon for helping out to ease some of that! One thing I have to say is once the month is over I really hope to see you guys continuing to fold. We have always punched well above our weight class when it comes to the number of active folders we have compared to the number of points we can churn out on a daily basis. When I first tarted folding the team was in decline, But we used to hit a billion or more points every month, I'd really like to see our team get back to those numbers. With three days left to tinker and experiment until the time comes where every point counts are go going to see any major shifts in production? Are you guys ready to deal with the heat, the power, the noise and most importantly the competition breathing down your neck? Well only time will tell!    ANNOUNCEMENTS   Can the people who have the following folding IDs please get in contact ASAP: Nameless,  justinquedible, Byron Jason. We have no forum names for you and thus you will not be included in the event if you do not get in contact before the 6th of November at the latest.    ONCE AGAIN, please remember that to be counted you MUST BE folding for team LTT.   Happy folding,   Ben.

T- 4 days

Well we are starting to heat up with the WAN show shout out there has been an explosion of people signing up, 94 in all as of time of writing! Please remember guys if you are participating them you need to be folding for the Linus Tech Tips team or your points will not be counted. I have seen a couple others points dip the last day or two, I'm guessing you are either experimenting with your overclocks or you have been having some much needed maintenance, either way, I hope it has been helpful.   Overall the Teams points are on a upward trend, it would be great if we could see this continue during and after the event but we will see. One thing I am liking is seeing how much @James seems to be enjoying folding along with us, good to see even just one of the LMG staff wanting to get involved. Lets hope he can try to convince at least one more to get on board before the event starts.    Happy folding,   Ben.

Just a short update. We are now up to 32 sign ups! We had a WAN show shout out so maybe we can get a few more to come along over the next few days. Guys, if you think someone would like to be involved then spread the word to them! Tell your friends across the forum. Scheduled some downtime for tomorrow then I will be seeing just how far I can push what I have.    This is a repost from early this morning, in the future posts will appear on the blog first and the thread second.

My general software development axioms

An assortment of random axioms that I try to think about when doing software development work. The reason why I hold to these usually falls into one of these reasons: Making the most efficient use of my time Minimal need to maintain the code (hopefully, maybe) Ease of maintaining the code Ease of reading and understanding what the code does Finding the best way to make efficient software, without tramping on the above Regarding the software development process The priorities of development I stick to these priorities: Making the app easy to maintain If the app isn't easy to maintain, then it makes everything harder to do. And this is a very broad category, covering things like what tools I use, designing, and implementation details Making the app do what it's supposed to If the app doesn't do what it's supposed to do, then why bother using it? Making the app perform as best as it can Now some people who aren't developers looking into this may go "how come performance isn't your priority? Shouldn't you always make the app perform fast?" In particular say for games. To me, it doesn't matter if the game can get 300 FPS while looking good on potato hardware, if it crashes all the time, has bugs, or isn't, you know, fun, then I couldn't care less because it's not doing what it's supposed to do. And if it's a nightmare to maintain, then good luck fixing the problems.   Find the tools that you can work with, but only find as many as necessary Having an excellent set of tools does wonders for productive software development. The tools need to be ones that you can work with depending on your preference. But only get the ones that you need and no more. This creates noise in your toolchain and whenever you setup your development environment, the fewer tools you need to install and configure, the faster you can get to doing the actual work. And before you think about adding a tool to your toolbox in a more "permanent" fashion, think about why you need it, how has it helped you, and how often does it help you.   For example, the bare minimum toolset I would l like for a given project is: A text editor with code syntax highlighting and line number viewing on the side. Bonus points if it checks syntax and for issues, but that's not necessary A diff tool to see the differences between versions of source code and possibly merge them A version control tool of some sort. Some people may want more. Some people may want less. And some people use the bare minimum for these (if they do it). For example, The 8-Bit Guy for Planet X3 development uses a basic text editor (akin to Notepad) for coding and his "version control" is copying and pasting the project folder once in a while. He doesn't mention a diff tool, but he likely hasn't had a need for one.   Regarding software design Figure out what needs to be done first The app has a purpose, figure out what that purpose is and what needs to be done to achieve it first. If you don't know what the purpose of the app is, then what's the point in cranking out code for it?   Design from the top-down, but build from the bottom-up Do you design a skyscraper by first figuring out what kind of foundation you want before working on the shape you want it to have or do you design the skyscraper from the shape that you want it to have, then work your way down to the foundation? Or to put it more closer to geekiness, if you want to build a smartphone, do you first design the phone, its features, and what you'd like it to do, then work your way down to what kind of hardware it should have, or do you decide what hardware it should have, then work on the design of the phone, its features, etc.?   Granted you could go either way, but the problem with designing from the bottom-up is the bottom houses details aren't oriented to solving the problem of designing the thing in question. Those details are oriented to implementing it. Using the phone example, if you find out too early the hardware doesn't actually work the way you thought it did, then you'll be at square one. If you design from the top-down first, you end up with a concept that is independent of the implementation so that if you find out the hardware doesn't actually work, then the amount of work thrown away is relatively smaller.   So where does the "build from the bottom-up" come from? In a lot of cases, applications need a foundation and infrastructure to work with. By building from the bottom up, you create a platform in which makes developing the rest of the application easier. Using the smartphone example, once you're done designing and selecting the hardware, you need to first build the hardware, then, generally speaking, build the firmware, OS, and drivers before you can start working on the application itself.   Another way of saying this as well from say a web app point of view, build from the back-end to the front end.   Design principles are fine to learn, but should be understood before putting them to practice A design principle in software is always good to learn, but you shouldn't rush out and put it to practice before understanding what it's doing and how it would fit in your application.   Design (and coding) Principles The following principles I like to follow: Keep it simple, stupid (KISS): The simpler the pieces of code are, the easier it is to work with. Don't repeat yourself (DRY): If you are copying and pasting ANY amount, you should probably see if it fits better in its own function You ain't gonna need it (YAGNI): Don't do things you don't need until you actually need it. Loose coupling: Do not have one file, class, etc. heavily depend on another. That is, I should be able to remove this file, class, etc. without needing extensive modifications in other places of code. Single responsibility principle: A feature or a small subset of a feature should be contained within a single file, class, etc.   Regarding software implementation Code is written for humans, not machines It may be tempting to believe that the whole point of source code is to describe to a computer what you want it to do (and it'll do it exactly). However, that's not 100% true. Source code is describing what a computer should do in a way that humans know what the computer is doing.   Code should always be consistent, even when you don't agree with the style Everyone has their reasons for styling the code. But what's important is not the style of code, but that it's the same style across the board.   Code should self-documenting Every function, variable, class, etc. name needs to be meaningful. And not just meaningful by description, but context. For example all variables should be nouns, because they are a thing. All function names should start with a verb, because they are doing things.   Comments should be used sparingly and the only time I think it should be appropriate to use comments with no questions asked are: Separating sections of code Describing files at the header At the top of function definitions to describe them If something non-obvious needs to be communicated, like why an innocuous piece of code needs to be where it is Integrating someone else's solution is fine, if you understand what it does Let's face it, a lot of coding is basically copying and pasting someone else's code. But there's a difference in sticking a piece of code in your software, seeing it work, and going on your merry way than taking this piece of code, analyzing it, and seeing what it's doing, and how it affects your code.   Build and test often I always feel there's this stigma that if you have to constantly build and test out your application, you're probably not a good developer (This is probably self-inflicted, I never actually read anything about this). But to me, building and testing often means catching bugs and figuring out problems earlier than later. And when you change large swathes of code and there's a problem... well good luck finding what did it.   Work on one feature before moving onto another If the application has a lot of features or the work is updating a lot of features, focus on one feature before going to another. This will reduce mental load and allow concentrating on getting that one feature more or less perfected. If the feature is dependent on another one that isn't developed yet, provide dummy data or something.   Break things up if possible, but don't break them down too far Breaking things up helps understand the code piecemeal, but don't break it up so far that you're always jumping around in the code.   Reinventing the wheel is fine for simple things, but don't reinvent it again Basically, if you can hammer out a library or set of utilities for something simple, do it. And reuse it.   While I'm sure in Python there are CSV reading libraries, building one from scratch is easy and I'm not hunting one down to get the features I want. And when I do build it, I should keep it around so I'm not building it again.   Make the application predictable One of the biggest time savers for source code, both for the computer running it and the person reading it is making the application as predictable as possible. You can do this by trying to eliminate conditionals as much as possible. What I mean by a conditional is any if-statement or any loop. The less of these you have, the easier it is not only for the computer to process (predictable code is happy code), it's easier for developers to read and understand. To put another perspective on it: for every conditional you have, you double the complexity. Examples of eliminating conditionals: If you are initializing a variable and it has to be within certain bounds, find a way to make it impossible to go out of bounds in the first place. For example, if you are generating a random number and it needs to be within certain bounds, contain how the random number is generated in the first place so you don't have to check after the fact.
  Using a single variable to maintain state, rather than checking a bunch of variables to determine what to do next. If you catch yourself writing code that's always checking the same variables, it would be faster to have any change to those variables update a single "state" variable, then depending on what "state" its in, determine what to do next. Then when it comes to debugging a problem, you'll only have one thing to check: what was the last state it was in? And it's much easier to do a search on when the state changes to that particular value than say a dozen variables and finding the right combination that blows things up (I've had to deal with this before)
  Use switch-case statements when possible. If you need guidance on when you should use them, this answer on StackExchange helps. The compiler or interpreter will then find the best way to turn this into an cleanly executable bit of code https://www.eventhelix.com/RealtimeMantra/Basics/CToAssemblyTranslation3.htm is an example of how switch-case statements are handled in C.
  Avoid if-statements in loops if possible. An example of this is if you need to print out values, say the prime factorization of a number. This requires printing out an * after each value, but you don't want to print an * at the end of the last one. You could, in the loop that does the factorization, check if the value is going to be the last one and if it's false, print out an *. Or you can solve the first factor then in the loop, always print a * first thing. It boils down to this: make your code predictable. Deterministic. That is for any input, strive to make it run the same exact code.   Don't prematurely optimize Premature optimization is trying to be "smart" with code for the sake of performance at the cost of readability. Premature optimization also just adds additional work. You shouldn't be caring about the performance unless it's too slow. And if you need to care about performance, benchmark and profile the application to see where the heaviest cost is, then work on optimizing that. This reduces the amount of work you need to do.   It's okay to do the naive thing to prove the design works This ties in to "Don't prematurely optimize", but if you want to make sure the design works, do the naive solution just to prove what you're doing works. Once it does work, give it a once over for improvements if it doesn't take much effort.

Why Android Phones are better | A response to LTT video

Throughout friday of last week and this past weekend, many of you replied and told the truth about why you bought an Android phone.   Today I wanted to consolidate what we learned about why people buy Android Phones and to remind people that Android is awesome and nothing Apple fanboys say can take away from that.   Reasons to buy Android phones: * iPhones are too expensive   @Sauron has stated:   @LordOTaco says:   @Spotty explains:   @DarkEnergy states:   * IOS is buggy   @Morgan MLGman writes:   * Customization   @Drak3 explains:   @Bouzoo says:   @D13H4RD2L1V3 states:   @seon123 says:   * Because Apple is Evil and Because Apple are dicks   @WereCatf explains:   @aki adaki states:   @PCGuy_5960 says:   * Because Apple doesn't care about what you think or want - It's their way or the highway.   @suicidalfranco writes:   * Because Android is Open @AluminiumTech writes:   @GoldenLag explains:   Thanks for participating in last week's discussion! The thread is still open:
