Day Eleven - Folding Month 2018

Ive still not gotten around to rebuilding sheet one, that will be today at some point(read that as it's going to be another all-nighter most likely). Hopefully the numbers up to this point aren't too far off but we will see.    Now we have Tomerrs as what have become the traditional first place, the king is sitting in second with 58.9million. Jakkuh is in third with 44.3million, _RLocke is not far behind with 42.9million then there's a wide opening to Gorgon sitting in fifth with 29.2m

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 i

Day Nine - Folding Month 2018

Well guys, it has been a hectic 48 hours but I'm back baby! First off I just want to say sorry about the update yesterday, Sometimes life just gets in the way and that's exactly what happened in the end.   We have Tomerrs sitting in first place with a whopping 54.7million points, king poet is in second with 48.6 million point and Jakkuh is in third with 33.4million points. In 4th place we have _Rlocke with 25.9million, in 5th is Dissitesuxba11s with 23million. Gorgon finds himself in 6

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

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

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

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 h

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 L

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.

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. Roll

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 ove

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

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.

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 proc

Microsoft's documentation outlining that MS sells customer data collected through MS products and services

Example 1   From Microsoft's documentation Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 Telemetry Updates (Diagnostic Tracking).   Under "Microsoft Data Management Service".   Under "Collection".   Under "Usage".   Microsoft isn't its own partner. A partner means a 3rd-party. A business agreement with a 3rd-party means a profitable transaction. What Microsoft is saying, in a sterilized PR manner, is that they sell the data they collect through Windo

You legally own the software that you purchase, and any claims otherwise are urban myth or corporate propaganda

Updated February 2020     Some of the bottom part of this post is a paste of a message I sent to Steam support following the seemingly-bullying actions of a Steam forum moderator who has been falsely telling people that Steam rents / leases games through their service and doesn't sell them, and who was intolerant of anybody telling them they're wrong. That moderator liked to do things like delete posts and lock any threads where people demonstrated otherwise.   To be cle
