Hi,

I'm going to make an html5 game with an online team (9000+ members). I need a great collaboration tool for this. Asana looked great, but don't have the money for it. Also a tool like github, but for beginners.

Want some sweet spotlight on CC for your well deserved achievement?

Well, that could be your chance, as Karen just let us know who they are looking for in the next profile feature:

"Specifically, we are looking for any stories of public-private partnerships that have yielded impactful results, great relationships with mayors or other elected officials that have been forged around this mission or young adults that have found successful employment or life skills from your company or organization’s youth jobs efforts."

This call is for young (age 13 - 21) users doing great things with what they've learned from Codecademy, so if you are fitting or otherwise know some young talent, let me know :)

Would someone be willing to give me some feedback on my project euler solutions in python. In particular 14, because that's way too slow.

Your code outperforms mine.    I see you already cache the earlier results, which was my "trick" to make it run faster.    I used a Python "generator" to implement the sequence generation and a "cache" class to do the caching of earlier results.    My best guess is that your code's improved performance relative to mine is you have fewer calls as your code is more of an inline implementation where mine is perhaps more modular.

Once I got the runtime down to what I thought was an acceptable level, I stopped trying to improve it.   I see from the other comments that various folks, including you, have done much better than I did on runtime.

I was using Cygwin python 2.7.3 for the tests.

Files:

problem14_nico.py - http://pastebin.com/bfDTte3p - Your version
problem14.py           - http://pastebin.com/AYYykyrj - my version w/cache
problem14_nocache.py - http://pastebin.com/wTzCfcXr - my version without cache
main_timer.py -  http://pastebin.com/trk7E1n9  - Main program for all my project Euler programs.
problem14_results.txt - http://pastebin.com/ZUzeZjLW -  Timed test runs on my meager laptop PC.

I made one extra test run.   I cranked my cache up to a full 1,000,000 slots and ran the program again.   The CPU time came down, though not to your level of speed.    I'm pretty sure the poor PC was paging heavily during that run.

I'm working on an impress.js presentation of a detective story I had to write as an english assignment. Would anyone be willing to proof-read what's already uploaded for me? http://users.telenet.be/nicoekkart
Dearlove started investigating what happened, if anything was lost and who could be blamed for the outage. He let the system scan for any changes in the database, and after a few minutes, it found that something was missing. Thousands of files of the most dangerous criminals currently alive were ...
