[QUOTE=xilman;553327]"BoJo"is a common contraction of "Boris Johnson".

"Bozo" is the name of a historically famous circus clown.

I used "bozo" whereas you mis-quoted it as "bojo".[/QUOTE]

Spot the difference

Uh I think I got the last bit... "de" vs. "bi" is the pun?

[QUOTE=Batalov;553311]I am always keen to learn some crowd psychology.
The question that I had is - why do folks get compelled to download a code that does something wrongly? We [I]already [/I]know that it does its own job wrongly. What does it matter [I]how [/I]it does it? One wants to marvel the coding style or the number of lines or something?
Very curious.

The algorithm starts with N, P and Q, then...

Full stop, don't need to read further.
The algorithm now computed P*Q and if it equals N: stop, all done.
Else: stop because there is no point in going further :-)

Arguing that it is better because "it doesn't use division and (untrue) doesn't use modular arithmetic" is false because it competes with the Algorithm 2: "Compute P*Q. If equal N, stop. Done" and loses.[/QUOTE]
You really want too much :rolleyes: this algo been going for research matters == it collects statistics how numbers permutates with Z. password is indeed simple filter for kicking-around folks :smile:

[QUOTE=Till;553338]Uh I think I got the last bit... "de" vs. "bi" is the pun?[/QUOTE]Nope. You are over-analyzing.

"BiCapitalization" is a pejorative attack on corporations who use weird capitals within a word so that they can (try to) trademark common words.

So no pun at all.

Thanks for the explanation. There is so much to learn...

this function is some kind of mystic == result oscillates quite close to 1 :)

I clicked the link and was automatically downloading a compressed file. I'm not a fan and automatically sluiced it out the backdoor. For anyone else looking at this link beware of this behavior or at least have a few safety features in place to contend with anything nasty.
For the OP, I looked at what I could and couldn't discern any milestone and if you spot anything else that is mystical consult one of the many oracles that can dissipate the smoke..google..duck duck..

learn basics about computers & security, then your questions + concerns shall be eliminated for good. :smile: it's very sad that discussion has become so boring off-topic.

:modhat: :flex:

Hiding a sourceforge link to an executable file behind an amd forum link won't do you any good either. Together with the scratchy answer above, that resulted in me editing the link. No, I didn't try to download it. I will take your advice for good, and I will not open it before learning some more about computer security, whenever that will be :razz:

 SarK0Y 2020-09-09 19:36

direct link to a file has the sense, because even slight changes of algo have affected results + i add more statistics + weed bugs out. And if archive is malware, it doesn't matter you download it manually or automatically == infection will be activated during opening. Actually any archive can be easily checked for malware..
