    Wow, miller shot all the way to the top. Weren't you like at level 14 or something when I recruited you a month or so ago?

    Lately, I've been gold farming.

    So, my level seemed to rise really quickly because the energy savings on Winter Solstice 5.

    Yeah, I miss those level 14 days.... I was still a cute lowbie then. Embarassed

    You caught on pretty fast. Did you have a previous account, or are you just that good?

    A lot of spare time, that's what Miller has. =P

    I've been playing all the way from the start, months ago... of course I took a huge break and don't have a ton of spare time...

    I believe I started playing on August first. At least that what the "Ashrock and Roll Badge" Tells me. Huh, so I guess I haven't even been playing for a year yet.

    Lol... no, this is my first and only account. Guess I got lucky in the beginning of the game. I think within my first 5 gold packs, I got Atlas, Tiamat and Omega. My first enclave pack was chaos wave. Of course, when I was a noob I thought those cards sucked... but I surged with those cards until I was level 50ish. Only recently changed my surge deck.

    And yes, I have too much freedom. I mentioned in another thread I am a post-graduate student. So basically I do research and projects at university and have a lab with many computers at my disposal. And I can work at home. My supervisor knows to leave me alone, because I generally get things done well if I have my freedom. We have a good relationship.

    Plus, I'm very "researchy"... even when I was doing that free kreds guide it lead me to research
    -> if i can safely get the $750 casino bonus
    -> read fine print (darn, i couldn't use the safe baccaret method)
    -> optimum blackjack strategy chart
    -> if online casino got their source code audited
    -> various things about hacking

    .... then i realized I wasted an hour researching. So, you can imagine my Tyrant research.


    But I've decided after the New Year to take a step back. I have an idea for a web-app that I want to develop. So my LP will probably be around 200LP per week. Right now, all I'm doing is gold farming, but I'd like to get our faction to level 8 so members can get their ravenous dredges.

    Hey miller, I don't believe you put your info on the Phoenix Nest forums. I would like to hear a little more. Giving a quick bio is always a good way to learn a few things about people in our faction.

    Hmm.... in the source code for a Casino, (online) I guess they would have to "seed" a random number... but how? There are ways to generate Pseudorandom numbers, and then there are ways to genereate reals ones...

    (Using C++ Code)
    I guess to seed you would do: srand(static_cast<unsigned int>(time(0)));
    This only gets a number that depends on the time. Seeing how the time is always different, it gets fairly good numbers.

    Then to get the number you would: int Dice = rand();
    (with int Dice being the variable in which you story the random number.)

    Then to make it 1 out of 6 you do: int Dice16 = (Dice %6)+1;

    Uh, a little offtopic there. Oh well....

    Oh, it seems NightTiger is at the very at least, a Computer Science student. =)
    Maybe, we should program an illegal casino website together tongue

    Yup, all the code is a good start to writing your own casino game. But the issue is that online casinos...

    1) Hard to hacked

    Because like Tyrant's daily chance the transactions are taking place on the server. So you can't inject packets, or packet sniff, or hex memory edit. You then need to find a bug in the OS or the server code... or you break SSL and it's impractical to do so.... but if you could break SSL, you could rule the world. Twisted Evil

    2) Source code not checked by authorities

    So online casinos can cheat you. So instead of an intrinsic 50/50% odd... the house can easily programmatically fix it so it is a 70/30% odds in favour of the house. Source code can't be patented, but it is still treated as an in-house trade secret... so essentially it can be hidden. And nobody knows if the online casino is cheating you.

    But now this thread is completed devolving from it's original topic... Sad

    @Miller
    I can take the posts we have and move them to offtopic?

    And it would be easy to cheat in the casino's favor. Heck, you can set it up so that the casino lets the player win a few small bets, then when they do a large one, BAM, you lose. Maybe I'll go fiddle around with code for a bit and make one, but it'd only be single player and you couldn't bet real money. =(

    And breaking SSL is insanely impractical... but imagine the power you would have over.. well.. EVERYTHING if you managed to do it. I bet that foreign countries are trying to do that right at this instant. Maybe our government is too... * conspiracy theory get!*
