Re: HEXATTACK (Now starting!)

Vytron's pieces are the furthest removed from blue's, and also the people he is currently fighting are not next to blue's pieces. If needed, I suggest Vytron submit moves for blue (with a view to maximising blue's score, as impartially as possible). What do people think? dudio and Elmach are closer ...

@ gmalivuk - sorry, by 'reflect' I meant the time it takes to be absorbed and then re-emitted in the opposite direction, not the total time it takes to reflect and come back. You can test this at different distances to determine if light takes a long time to reflect. Assuming it takes a consistent t...

Cool, thanks for the answer gmalivuk! You know the light traveled twice the distance to the mirror in the time it took for the disc to spin from one opening to the next, so divide.

The amount of electricity you're using is increased, but not by a whole lot. At idle, the average desktop uses under 100 watts - laptops generally less than that.

If you change all of the rods every 6 months, then the average age of the rods over the 6 month period is 3 months, right? Same for if you change half of the rods at 3 months, then the other half. Or if you change a different rod once every 6 / 78 months. Any random sampling process, unless you incr...
