    VIO made up some lame excuse so he could sit in the corner and lick his wounds from the last battle.

    Well, thanks to all, I am feeling

    EM_BOLDEN:)

    but right now, the CC boards are in flux....or chaos,
    depending on your point of view.

    In the potty mouth game,
    I think some


    BANNING (dare I say this on these boards.....)

    has gone on, as some of the players have been posting in the forums as well,


    one of them got a

    LOCK and BAN

    response from a mode......but really, unlike here, it really really really took
    an OMG lot of stuff.

    In other CC news......once again, CC is under attack by someone? something???
    entopy of some kind???????????


    and is having a server overload.

    which they hope to correct tomorrow with a server expert?

    so, I guess they do not have one on duty as a part of their boards,
    which probly also explaines the lack of understanding how to
    generate true probablity dice rolls,

    which I have read the solution that they use,
    and
    well

    I now know a little better why the rolls show up the way they do.

    A little note on CC, I joined in June of last year. There was only 3 pages of games to chose from at the time. In 10 months it has grown to over 22 on the weekends, I think that is causing the server problems more than anything.

    Also MT, what are you talking about with the dice?

    ref CC dice, well, I need to read it again,

    and CC is kinda down for me at this time,

    and my hope is to find and quote them on this,

    but this is what I think they are doing,


    a random number generator is creating a file of numbers,
    then are accessed and used as dice rolls.

    this array of numbers, according to CC, is used once and never again.

    So, until I re-read it. I am viewing it as something I remember from
    one of my classes concerning probability.

    so here is my example.

    an array of numbers is generated as follows,


    135642154234616135612566362544535253645312625345161236352451

    ok, I just typed these randomly, so this is not a truely (in fact I rigged it to make my point)
    generated random array. But, it should serve to illustrate
    what I currently think is happening.


    let us say it is 3 dice to 1.

    What the "roll program" does is look at the array,
    and
    attacking player with 3-dice to roll gets,
    135
    and then defender with 1-die to roll gets,
    6
    then attacker gets
    421
    and the defender gets
    5

    well, that should be enough to make my point.

    and so, even tho the numbers are generated randomly,
    and even tho the array is accessed only once,
    and yes, even if the array is accesed randomly,

    there is never a true random 3-dice to 1-die outcome, ever....

    now, after that, explaining the hardest math problems (probablitiy) I have
    ever encountered (I found calculus and diffy-q easy by comparrison)

    in a simple post, to be a little much.

    Tho, as I have posted before, I am on the lookout for my math books,
    while wandering my garage:)

    only beause, I kinda find math fun at times[face_laugh]

    actually I like Math also, and Calc only became easy in college when I took a tutoring class that met 2 to 3 hours a day. Great class, great teacher, aced the final, but worked my tail off to do it.

    Free at Last, Free at Last,

    ok, only for this weekend.

    I am finally free of all CC games,

    Having (dare I say it) won a game after 17 loses in a row.

    Plan to improve on that percentage next week:)

    ref, Having fun loosing____well, YES, especially against you guys:)

    It is always a relaxing atmosphere, where I can just be me and have a little fun.

    and with that, waiting for new games:)


    also,

    ref having fun loosing, just lost in a fun game that I started myself,

    after that game from........well, VIO, knows how icky it was,


    I started a game myself and met 4 other wonderful players,
    who all stuck around and even engaged in some friendly chat.

    and so I have started another public game,


    2030634


    or just click on me and look at all games I am involved in,
    it should show up at the top of the list.


    Will try to hold two open looking for an opportunity to enjoy

    You have to start somewhere, may as well be at the bottom. Everyone isn't that great to begin with. Remember, all of us have been playing for a long time.

    and so do I[face_laugh]


    so take it from someone that knows

    It is very helpful to remember that CC-dice,

    do NOT behave like real dice.

    so, if you are thinking that the odds are like 3 to 1,
    think more like 3 to 2,


    and since the CC dice systems plucks die numbers from an array,
    the odds of someone with a one rolling-6
    4 or 5 times in a row, are kinda high.

    my current guess, is to not use auto-attack,
    in hopes of landing into the array more randomly,
    but so far this is not working too well either:_|
