Re: 1190: "Time"

Here's a question I'm pondering: I'm sure Randall has the entire sequence of images planned, but do you think he's got them all already drawn? I'd lean towards yes, but then I've never tried to draw a strip on a regular basis. I think the entire thing is done already and he's just sitting back and ...

We were unable to get it to run on the supercomputer due to libcurl issues. My friend is running it on his laptop but can't get lower than 416 (which is a best for my school, but not enough to make it past the cutoff of 407).

Re: 1193: Externalities

Comparing results is just a matter of analyzing the hamming distance of the two bitstrings (in this case, xoring the two binary values together and counting the number of 1s).

Re: 1193: Externalities

The github code requires curl in order to run. I found the page, and the necessary .tar.gz file, but since we're still not very experienced, we're not quite sure what we're supposed to do with it (I promise, there IS a supercomputer trying to work on this and we didn't steal it)

She's looking at him, so I'm expecting her to go with him in a moment. Perhaps another zoom out will be in order. Either that, or she's summoning him to help her with whatever she's currently working on.
