So is this round of TMO on schedule to end or are we really behind on it?
posted 12-06-09 11:51 PM EDT (US)     1755 / 2500  
Well, it's on schedule in that it was slower than the last. At this rate of slow down we will hit TMO 30 by the year 2153.

Ha...HAHAHAHA...Just wait til you see what I edit in here in a minute. It will be Saffah-level statistics.


EDIT: Bwahahahaha. Procrastinating studying for finals has never been so lame!



Updated Version

Just remember that not all TMO's went to 2500, a few went under and a few over. Also, note that the first few lasted only 20-40 days. This one will most certainly last well over a year if not nearly two.

Also, I am now changing my original estimate of 2153 to 2010. SO SUCK IT NICK (STONEY)

I'm thinking we need a surge of posts in this just so we can eff Cheesewiz's prediction of 2010.

I think the 2153 thing is an unrealistic prediction (considering statistical analysis) considering if the site still keeps going for an indefinite amount of period. For the site to continue to exist, there must be a base activity, thus the logarithmic equation should be paired with an underlying base linear equation. This is to take into account losers that won't ever leave. >_> The Log equation will be calculating the normal people that come and go.

With that in place, the time to reach TMO XXX will take a lot less time.

or we can just arbitrarily change the number of posts a TMO gets before it ends, which would screw up all his calculations.

Jesus Echo read my posts, my calculation was already changed to the more likely 2020. I just made up 2153, 2020 USED MATH!

Technically my graph takes into account every single factor. The idea is that the current trend away from posting is due to the lack of new comers, and because of the use of the log based graph we should expect that to be at least partially accounted for.

However, one could say that if you only compared the past few TMO's you would get a more accurate picture of the situation, since the site's activity was boosted by the expansion packs, thus making the middle values more than they would be by typical log fall off. Meaning anything from 2030 to 2040 could be a closer estimate.

Nice work, Cheezy!

That log curve is a pretty tight fit. Sure you didn't massage some of the numbers?

Also, you could have saved yourself about 2 hours by simply typing, "A dying forum produceth no new TMO."

Nice! I recently had my 8800GTS take a dump all over my computer in the middle of a game so now I'm the proud new owner of a 275 GTX and get to run all my games at max graphics

yeah I was lookin at the 295 yesterday and decided for only $450 more, I could get a top of the line Quadra pro workstation GPU special ordered, which I might just go ahead and do once I get paid for the current job.

I've also heard shit things about Nvidia but then someone else said the same things about ATI last week so w/e

Oh yeah no doubt about it, it's just that the price on SSD haven't budged at all in the last few months, and I ran out of money before I ran out of tower space lol.

I definitely want something nice for all my system files and core templates. I also need to get a hefty UPS because this building has an aging electrical system and we wake up randomly to the sound of thunder, followed by rebooting, frequently enough, it's not smart to let it go for even a week.

Saffah, as a fellow scientist such accusations are befuddling!

Haha, no, the stats are 100% legit. I was just as surprised as you.

Very nice, Saffah.


EDIT: Wait, Saffah you said you worked at some sort of Cardio Research Institute in Texas right? It's a long shot, but part of what I'm doing in the lab now (and next semester) is to grow up a shit ton of protein to send to some sort of Heart Doctor in Texas. Slim chance, but it would be a hell of a coincidence.

Yeah I was congratulating Cheesewiz, sorry about the confusion.

I do remember Cheezy Monkey though. Mostly through his cool editor tricks on the Wiki.

I don't have any ties with Texas. I've done work for UTH before (Willerson, Mohammad Madjid, Morteza Naghavi) and they're working on some awesome stuff, but my most recent research was at NIH clinical arm in Baltimore. Sadly, I could not leverage my expertise to get remote access to continue working on my old project after beginning school here. So someone else is doing it and I'm out of the loop for now:/

I played AOE3 on full graphics last night for the first time, and man it's nice. Of course, I would think that 400 filthy lucres would provide enough axle grease to get the show moving.

If anyone is up for a vanilla game this evening (GMT-5) lemme know.
