#1693408 Spooky Food Eating Contest

Posted by Trey on 12 October 2013 - 11:59 PM

Now that the table size keeps increasing, here's a faster way to do the puzzle that requires less trial and error and moving of flowerpots:

 

1) Check how many mDB you are away from the solution.

 

2) Starting with the first column (I like to start from the rightmost column), move the pot all the way to the end that it is furthest from. Note the number of squares that it passes - I'll call this number "X".

 

3) Now check how much the mDB has changed.

a) If it has reduced by X, then your flower pot is in the right place.

b) If it has reduced by X-1, then it needs to be moved one spot away from the end. If it has reduced by X-2, then it needs to be moved two spots away from the end - so on and so forth.

c) On the other hand, if the number has increased by X, then this means that the original position was the correct one. If it has increased by X+1, then it needs to be moved back one square after the original position (in the other direction). If it is X+2, then move it two squares past the original position in the other direction - so on and so forth.

 

With this method, you only need a maximum of two moves per column to place each flowerpot in the correct spot. You do need to pay a bit more attention (and do some basic arithmetic) compared to the trial and error method though.




#1684717 Cannot determine if item was purchased

Well, I hope they change the Attic so that restocks are random. It's too easily exploited currently.

 

 

Yes, I'm jealous of you EC2 users :p




#1684037 Do you support gay marriage??

Posted by Trey on 28 July 2013 - 05:58 PM

It's interesting how the Internet (or at least, the youth portion of the Internet) is by and large pro-gay.

 

But it's natural to be anally penetrated by a tiny Asian cock?

 

As an Asian, I object to that characterisation of our dick size!




#1682134 How much real money have you made off neopets?

Posted by Trey on 16 July 2013 - 10:38 PM

Something like -$10 (bought NC). Neopets is entertainment for me so if I started making money off it, it will feel like work :p

If you are using Neoquest's autobattler, you can just type "list" when it asks for the challenger ID to see a list of challengers...




#1672964 Interesting Neopets staff discussion bug

Posted by Trey on 13 June 2013 - 02:47 AM

We old people still refer to MSN because that's all there was back in the day. :p

 

 I know, I'm pretty old too (I'm in my twenties) :p But wouldn't pedos be using more current names/programs if their motive is to prey on children and not old farts like us? :p




#1670027 Which of these should I change my forum name to?

Posted by Trey on 04 June 2013 - 09:11 AM

The shorter the better, IMO. Choose long names on forums and most of the time people will just use the first syllable.
