I think Summoning should be added to the list of standard mechanics.

On a slightly unrelated note: Anyone else thing Jeff should get some royalties from Nintendo for pokemon?

'Capture Soul' --> Throw Pokeball
'Simulacrum' --> I chose you %n
Soul Crystal --> Pokeball
Another one of the conspiracies...

In FFVIII, as the party level increases, so does the level of every monster.

Is that before or after you are crushed by all that money?

There are different sizes of infinity, or rather different infinities. Although in reality there isn't much difference between having a dollar for every natural number and having a dollar for every real number...

You didn't need to revive a long dead topic if you were just going to complain aimlessly. Just start a new topic like the rest of us do...

I take back my comment, I've looked at the source for the page and there is only one image. It just didn't make sense that the test would say I was right brained either.

I'm actually curious as to how many right handed people got a right sided brain and how many left handed people got a left sided brain on this test.

Of course, now that the left side of my brain knows the trick I can see it any way I want. Try to make her only do half-circles. :P

If I remember correctly the error code was 500 something. They just recently set me up on the network, so perhaps they forgot to give me all the permissions I needed. Thanks.

Perl, CGI Scripts, & Forms in General
Shaper
Member # 32

I'm trying to learn how Perl uses CGI scripts to interact with HTML; however, I'm in a bit of a rut.

First we have an html file, which contains a form implemented in the way seen below.
<FORM name="Form_One" action="../cgi-bin/Script.pl" method = "get">
...
</FORM>
So I create a basic perl script, say

#!/usr/bin/perl
use CGI;

my #cgi = new CG
print
$cgi->header ,
$cgi->start_html('Hello World!') ,
$cgi->h1('Hello World!') ,
$cgi->end_html;

Code borrowed from: [URL=http://inconnu.isu.edu/~ink/perl_cgi/lesson1/hello_cgi.html]Hello World CGI[/URL]
When I activate the action in the form, via a button in the html code, the page changes addresses. (i.e. from ../index.html to ../cgi-bin/Script.pl. However, this page doesn't have the html I would expect to be generated by the perl script.

Rather I get an error. I can't really be more specific about the error at this time, as the code I was working with is on another computer. Any Suggestions?

In order to simplify it a bit, I set it to only print the second half of the palindrome. This is the solution it gives me for the palindrome:

.. unless Zeviz had a specific boundary case in minNote: Since the palindrome has odd length the first period is the center. I'll wait to see what Aran gets before making adjustment to my code.

Could you give an example of a string (preferably shorter) where it is different.

I'm not completely familiar with php. But when i = 0, we are evaluating matrix[k][-1] for k from 1 to (N-1). I imagine evaluating this is going to cause issues.

Well some time could be saved if the program was adjusted so as to only check the two diagonals that Zeviz mentions, when looking for the largest value. But that alone can't account for that much of a difference.

Also when you begin, your boundary is i >= 0. Shouldn't that be i > 0.

I suspect that Zeviz's solution is probably as optimal as one can get, unless there's some obscure language theory solution. However, I'm not going to bother looking for it.

Time to move on to a new project?

He was refering to the screenshot part. If you have windows just hold control and then press the printscreen button while the game is up. You can then paste the image into whatever image editing program you prefer.

I've done a revamp of the code listed above. It should run correctly now, though at the sacrifice of some efficiency. I've gotten the following run times:

STRING TIME(seconds)
a 0.00
aa 0.00
aaa 0.00
aaaa 0.00
aaaaa 0.01
aaaaaa 0.19
aaaaaaa 8.90
aaaaaaaa Pending...
The results for the final test are still pending. The rapid increase in time, while not completely eliminating the polynomial scale, certainly seems to indicate exponential.

Perhaps I'll trying coding up Aran's solution to see how it compares...

In retrospect, my solution fails for "ababababa", as it will only extract either a string of b's or a string of a's...

I'll need to think about it a bit more, but I'm pretty sure my solution runs in polynomial time. Albeit with a fairly large exponent...
