From an implementation standpoint, I don't see anything wrong with Skel's original assertion.

From a usage standpoint, that's where I start to disagree.

But not like ten pages of stupid disagree.


But it's only four pages? /realmenuse50postsperpageandsoon

Yup, this. I still use the oldschool blue theme too!

LOL What? Stop with the jazz hands. "Go google it" is not a valid counter argument.

It is a valid means of educating yourself Skel. You got Bob excited with the Jazz Hands once, twice is pushing it, if you go for a third, it's boring.


So excited I need new pants. This is better than the time when I learned about floating point numbers in assembly. I could divide in peace and not worry about registers.

Spoiler: Scrolling is distributive.

Skel: Me too! I my honest opinion there are no other themes.

Are you guys ******* serious? I expected someone to come up with a more realistic number and tell me it still wasn't all that large, but this?

Am I the only one on this ******* board who understands Hash Tables?

Hash table:

Hashing Algorithms:
http://eternallyconfuzzled.com/tuts/algorithms/jsw_tut_hashing.aspx


Please, for the love of all that is good and holy in this world, will someone read over that and explain to me why Skels numbers represented the degenerate case for Hashtables?

I'm serious, you guys are starting to scare me.

I read those things and I still don't quite get what you're after. The only thing Skel wrote was that the hash table had 20 000 buckets. I mean sure, usually you choose a better number than 20k, such as a prime or a power of 2 or something, but surely that can't be it?
He specified nothing regarding the hash function, so that can't be it. Furthermore he didn't say how many elements would be stored in the array, so I can't see when the load factor comes into play.

Call me bad at hash tables and don't ever hire me or whatever, but this seems like a far fetched riddle. At least I don't get it.

If it's so obvious why don't you explain?

I just felt this was extremely relevant.
