You are, we suspect.

A serious question... Are you related to Rick Mercer?

no not to my knowledge and our family genealogist died within the last month so I can't ask them. Also you also tend to get repetitive because that's the 4th time you've replied to a post I made that way in under 3 years.

The ranges should be correctly set for the delta graphs now.

You know what? I would take that as a compliment. When he said it first time I googled for the guy and I really like that guy and what he is doing for the people with disabilities. I would like him to be my relative.

Now back on topic, @James
[QUOTE=James Heinrich;411936]The ranges should be correctly set for the delta graphs now.[/QUOTE]
Man I like the delta graphs! I can't understand how do you find the free time to do all that stuff. I wanted just to add that the delta graphs are better viewed from the angle of zero (due to the negative bars are difficult to see in 3D) so you could make a asterisk note under the graphs (better viewed from a zero angle, or so). Another idea, but that is already on the nitpicking side, is to make the negatives darker or change their border. But the zero angle note would be enough.

[QUOTE=James Heinrich;411915]I had to suppress some scaling code for delta graphs where I ran into divide-by-zero errors. I didn't have time to examine the problem so I hid it :blush: I'll have to go back and fix it properly sometime.

I [url=http://www.amcharts.com/demos/]think so[/url], but perhaps you could give me a more explicit example of what you're thinking of in this case.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=Uncwilly;411946]This seems to break things: [url]http://www.mersenne.ca/status/tf/0/7/4/33200[/url][/QUOTE]Thanks, fixed. It broke because I was lazy :redface: with the code and it caught me out by having no results in the first line of the table. I've fixed the code to be saner. :smile:

(Off topic post)

[QUOTE=chalsall;411930]There can be cases where dividing by zero is valid.

This simply results in infinity.[/QUOTE]
That is of debatable merit in the computer realm. Perhaps in some symbolic logic packages, but almost never in PHP or JS or similar. Even including the symbolic logic packages, overall the cases where it is not an error are outweighed by the cases where it is by a couple orders of magnitude, so making them an error by default is a very sensible thing.

[QUOTE=chalsall;411932]In my opinion, only an idiot would link to a YT video to enter an argument.[/QUOTE]

Why?

There's nothing different between the content of the YouTube video and the content of a couple of topical Wikipedia articles, and sm_88 is correct.

In the majority of cases, linking a YouTube video in an argument might be considered dubious, but in this case it certainly wasn't, and... well, your resulting ad hominem certainly doesn't improve your own image.

Edit: Unless you consider the point specifically about sign to be irrelevant?

I fundamentally disagree.

Videos can't be "parced" by many, including often myself.

This isn't always because of bandwidth or hardware limitations, but sometimes because of the unwillingness to have Javascript running on their machines where you don't really know what the code is doing to present the video.

Further, if one can't write what they mean to say, why should I listen to them? At least link to text (HTML et al) which I can read. I tend to read far faster than most can speak.

it depends on the circumstances is what I meant because one thing pointed out is you can define division by 0 on the real number line if you say which direction you are going because the limits going both ways are only the same under absolute value as they are [TEX]\pm \infty[/TEX]

If it cost you something to do something, and you hadn't succeeded yet, would the cost to successes radio not be infinite at that point in time per attempt?

[QUOTE=chalsall;411913]Any progress on the P-1 / LL / DC deltas?[/QUOTE]First version of LL data is up now:
[url]http://www.mersenne.ca/status/ll[/url]

Resolution is limited to 1M because I'm (currently) grabbing data from [url]http://www.mersenne.org/primenet/[/url] which is trivial to parse for the data I need.

Data in this report goes back to 01-Feb-2012.
