This is a small project I am slowly working on with someone. Figured I would share it. Here is my fork of it since he seems to be a little slow in looking over pull requests.

  Weekly Casual Chat #2 (2019-03-22): Screaming in the Ether
Posted by: loadedanvils - 03-22-2019, 05:23 PM - Forum: Off-Topic - No Replies

This is a thread where you can talk about whatever you want. Here's some good things I found recently:

Quantum Computing lectures (not too much background required, but you should follow along with the notation): http://michaelnielsen.org/blog/quantum-c...etermined/

This book (a good introduction): The Age of Cryptocurrency: How Bitcoin and Digital Money Are Challenging the Global Economic Order

I don't want to treat this like my personal journal because I don't want this to get too long, but essentially I've learned to deal with the GRE Subject Math pressure by realizing that I can take the second one in September just in case the April one doesn't go well. I might even still be able to apply for the spring, but if I have to apply for the fall, that works too.

Starting April (after the GRE) I'll be making new threads called Try Something New where anyone can try out something that they've never used before and talk about their experience, especially since I have trouble starting new things because it takes a lot of mental energy. First topic from me will probably be Slackware but if anyone has a good idea feel free to start a new thread.

Since I'm done with the most stressful part of my job, I'm also considering making threads about math topics I'm interested in, like Stochastic Modeling for example, it's a class I wasn't able to put my full attention towards, so it's time to do it justice.

  Calulating higher derivatives
Posted by: Todd - 03-16-2019, 11:24 AM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

I don't really think this would count as homework help because we havn't exactly gotten to this in class. I just briefly saw it in Essential Calculus: Early Transcendentals that there are derivatives of higher orders.

Would I be correct in assuming that a derivative of the next order is just a derivative of a derivative? As in lets say that f(x) = x^4.

Using the power rule, the derivative would be:

f'(x) = 4x^3

The derivative of the next order would be:

f''(x) = 12x^2

Going along with this pattern:

f'''(x) = 24x

Hey everyone. There’s not a lot of activity happening on the forum right now, and part of the problem may be that making a thread to start off a discussion is pretty hard when you just want to talk about something you’re thinking about. So here’s a place to talk about whatever’s on your mind, we’ll have a new thread for this once a week on Friday. Who knows, maybe we’ll get some new discussion threads out of it. Have fun!

  [Megathread] Gridcoin Community Hangouts
Posted by: fkinglag - 03-08-2019, 06:23 PM - Forum: Cryptocurrency - Replies (8)

Why are we holding these hangouts?

  • A mumble conference call can provide significant advantages over communicating via forums and IRC.

  • To create opportunities to inform the public of new Gridcoin, BOINC and related services & their development progress.

  • To bridge relations between the cryptocurrency & BOINC communities.

How long will the hangout last?

If there are not many topics suggested then hangouts won't last longer than an hour, on the other hand if there are many topics suggested then the hangout may last 2-3 hours!
When the Gridcoin Community Hangouts start really picking up traction we can become more strict with allocated speaking time if need be (so you're not waiting hours to talk).

Want to suggest a topic to discuss?
Reply with your suggestions in this megathread.
Can we discuss anything?
It's advisable to stay generally on topic, attendees are distributed around the world so they may not (likely won't) share the same views regarding controversial topics not related to Gridcoin/BOINC/Cryptocurrency.
That said, this 'on topic' guideline fizzles away once official recording has ended & the hangout becomes a more relaxed environment.

Scheduled time for Gridcoin Community Hangouts:
Saturdays, 1900 UTC every week.
Compare 1900 UTC to your timezone.

How to join the server:
                     -Label: any name or title
                     -Port: 64738 
                     -Username: Enter any username 
                     -Password: (there is no password for this server)
  • Step 4: Join the Gridcoin channel
  • Step 5: Configure your audio wizard & setup Push-To-Talk. Join 10-15 mins before the hangout starts to test your audio configuration.

I hope you decide to attend the hangout - everyone is welcome to join, especially those who suggest topics of discussion in this thread.

  Critical bug haunts Mac OS kernel
Posted by: bash.sh - 03-04-2019, 07:09 PM - Forum: Cybersecurity - Replies (1)

Google's infamous Project Zero disclosed a severe bug on Mac OS's XNU kernel earlier this morning. It allows the filesystem to be manipulate without alerting the operating system. This is the next bug in a littany of flaws that have been surfacing regarding the XNU kernel in the past 6 months or so. More disturbing is the lack of stringent auditing like in OpenBSD. The linux kernel has far more auditing done on it I would imagine and even it has had quite a number of security vulnerabilities in the last few years

  UPDATE: Planned Maintainance (27FEB19)
Posted by: Todd - 02-28-2019, 07:20 AM - Forum: Updates, News, and Changelog - Replies (1)

Hello all,

Just a quick announcement. During the night on May 1st, the forum may be down for some planned maintenance. An update of the MyBB forum software is released and the plan is to make the updates that night. I do not think it will impact anyone since not many users right now seem to traffic the forum in the middle of the night, however, I am making this announcement in the event that someone might. The update is migrating from MyBB 1.8.19 to MyBB 1.8.20. I plan to start the updating process sometime around 2300 pacific time (maybe later depending on the kids). My hope is that this will not take long and be a smooth transition. However, this is my first time performing an upgrade on MyBB, so I am unclear of how long the process will take. Hopefully after this update, in the future I hope I will be able to give a solid window for any future planned maintenance such as this.

During the night, I might also be improving some more functionality on the administration side of things that night also as time allows. If I am able to get to this, this should not impact the forum. First priority will be upgrade of MyBB.

Thank you,
