### Re: Pentacles

@Dodicat This formula compresses 5% on loop one... ================================= n1 = mid( bits , a , 8 ) v1 = val( "&B" + mid( n1 , 1 , 4 ) ) v2 = val( "&B" + mid( n1 , 5 , 4 ) ) if v2 <= 9 then outs+= chr( ( v1 * 10 ) + v2 ) else outs+= chr( ( v1 * 16 ) + v2 ) end i...

### Re: Pentacles

@Dodicat I've been playing around with the idea of robotics... I figure that the robots brain could be external and accessed through a radio ( RC ) or a cellphone.. Then you could hook the robot up to a super computer with AI like IBM's Watson computer... Then Watson could control the robot through ...

### Re: Pentacles

@Richard A = B x A / B B x A = ? and \ B cancels the mul out , so it's A = A Same as A = B + A - B = ( A = A ) I'm not entirely stupid... I'm just schooled in math formulas... I don't understand the complex formulas.. But all of math is simple , add , sub , mul , div , sqr , cuberoot .. and then the...

### Re: Pentacles

@Richard I'm not schooled in math... a = 2 : b = 2 n = ab From what i figure "ab" means to mul a * b , so n = 4 Why don't they just write n = a * b or n = a x b.. I'm not hip on the language of math... But I'm not entirely stupid.. And i got a formula that compresses , but won't post it.. ...

I tried the 8 bit bubble sort.. It expands 89% on loop 1 and 190% on loop2

### Re: Pentacles

Still working on data compression....

Since there's no patterns in random data. I got to figure a way to group bits together to make the stream compressible..

My above dictionary idea , doesn't work..

Maybe a bubble sort of 8 bits , and record the swaps??

### Re: Pentacles

@Richard Dodicat's above post ; of wave powered compression , could work.. @Dodicat There are some places on Earth that get big enough swells on a continuing basis , to power the compressor.. Portugal gets big swells all the time , the surfers love Portugal , for the constant 20 to 40 foot waves.. T...

### Power Generator

I came up with an idea for power generation.. You have an underwater treadmill , with barrels.. The barrels fill with water at the top and then sink to the bottom of the treadmill.. At the bottom of the treadmill , the water is blown out by a compressor,, Then the empty barrels buoy to the surface a...

### Re: Pentacles

I stupidly thought that , if you could put all 256 values into the smallest dictionary possible , that it would allow compression.. It turns out that it's 1 for 1 , so you can't use it to compress... But i found a dictionary that fits all 256 values ( 0 to 255 ) into a dictionary size of 263 bits.. ...

### Quirk in string statement

@CoderJeff

For some reason the string statement doesn't do strings..

dim as string txt = string( 3 , "Hello " )

Print txt

it outputs 3 ,H's "HHH" , instead of "Hello Hello Hello "

### Re: Number Trick

@CoderJeff Your code works... And it also sometimes compresses a few bits.. With 10 bytes input , it sometimes outputs 9.35 to 9.75 bytes... But the important part is , the output matches the input... screen 19 '' source string is a sequence of characters, each 0 to 255 '' we can optionally pass in ...
