Re: Python Trees not working?

... Ugh. I understand that it's broke, but my head won't wrap around WHY it's broke. Maybe a few more iterations through what you said.

Thank you for all your effort. :)

Re: You can turn it on? Give me a new hard drive!

My way of summing it up: "I'm a god to the lusers, and a luser to the gods." Everyone keeps praising me "Oh me yarm YOU KNOW SO MUCH!" and then I'm sitting here getting frustrated because I can't learn anything new. It dosen't help that I actually do know more than my teacher (no...

Re: Game of life AI

define 'rather small' here for the board size. I like the idea of the gliders, personally, but a glider needs a 4x4 'blank' area in order to be effective. If the board is only, say 6x6 or so, you're going to have a hard time getting a glider in there. another suggestion that might work: if you brute...

Okay, so. Since I'm a masochistic little something or other I figured I'd make my own trees class. (I'm actually trying to -learn- said trees, but being masochistic sounds so much better -.-) However, it's not working, and I don't quite know why. class treenode: index = -1 value = "" ltchi...

Re: Wondering if I should take advantage of this security hole.

My two cents: Don't use YOUR laptop if you can get away with it. Find a public cafe that dosen't keep logs of who uses their computer. Cyber cafe, library, nearby school (that you don't attend, with an open computer policy) and do it there. Then go through an anonymizer (And Tor if you can swing it,...

I've seen lots of these computers, and unfortunately, i haven't seen a real clear-cut way to fix them. Usually I just tinker with them, and they either cooperate after awhile, or.. don't.

Re: My life as a program.

The thing is, I'm doing this as a thinking experiment, not as a working model. A working model would have much more (or maybe less :) ) input, and prioritization would be less important. (It would show the next few things that need to be done, and let you prioritize it yourself.)
