Re: Dice Probabilities for Tabletop RPGs

Hm. Question. Earlier in the thread you mentioned using recursive polynomial multiplication to figure out how the 'roll 10s again' thing would work. Would I be able to do that once, and then treat my single die as '-1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1.26' (or whatever the probability of 'successes' on the ...

The rule in WoD is that you can roll 10's again, to get a chance at another success.

That's... computationally complex, so I was just gonna leave it be.

That... is a beautiful implementation. I didn't even think of that.

Hm. Yeah, I'd have to write a polynomial multiplier, but that still works amazingly.

Or I could just wait for my bruteforcer to run... It's at ~40% finished now.

Dice Probabilities for Tabletop RPGs

I'm playing a tabletop RPG called world of darkness. It uses a d10 system (10 sided die) to make choices. Many rolls are 'DC 8'. This means that rolls of 8 and above are considered successes. 1 is considered a botch, and removes a success. This leaves a 'die' of [-1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1]. (an ...

Re: Random DNS Failure - Solved?

I find most ISP's DNS servers are a little on the slow side. I mean, they work fine, just OpenDNS / GoogleDNS seems to work ever-so-slightly faster.

That said, the reason I changed them in the above scenario was to rule out the possibility of a bad DNS server.

Re: Why does Microsoft have a server edition of windows?

If you do what you've always done everyone else does, you'll get what you've always gotten everyone else does.

Windows servers do the job well enough. If you need to do something amazing, you'll need to write something amazing to do it. Linux lends itself to this very well.
