In Topic: 99 bottles Challenge thread 2

28 July 2015 - 06:39 AM

Shortest I could manage in Powershell ph34r.png (251 chars):
function n($n, $c) {
    $s = 's'
    $( switch ($n) {
        -1 { '99' }
        0  { $c + 'o more' }
        1  { $s = ''
             "$n" }
        default { "$n" }         
    }) + " bottle$($s) of beer"
}
$w = ' on the wall'
99..0 | % { 
    "$(n $_ 'N')$w, $(n $_ 'n')."
    $( if ($_ -eq 0) { 
        'Go to the store and buy some more' 
    } else { 
        'Take one down and pass it around' 
    }) + ", $(n($_-1)'n')$w.`n" 
}

Last steady job had me doing a JPA web app with a JSF frontend and Android client. Code was stored on SVN, built by Maven, all from inside Netbeans/Eclipse.

 

Sometimes I think the universe is out to get me.

Tree.js has a Collada loader. They had this among their examples:

In Topic: Super Planet Crash ... scores?

Fun little app. Was fooling around with something like this back in the Delphi days. Does anything like this exist for phone/tablet?

Scores:
Earth is habitable but influenced by single outer dwarf star. Fast forward for cool corona-like effect of Earth's orbit. 17,734,857 points.

Earth is habitable but with strange orbit caused by inner dwarf star causing the Sun to wobble. An outer brown dwarf completes the pretty picture. 16M pts.

Wonder how crazy these systems can get without causing instability?

Also wonder if they could be cheating in anyway in their calculations, since we are dealing with a "simulation" game.

If you were doing the exact measurements, and modelling and simulation of a distant star system, how long a simulated stability period would you consider "ok for settling"?
