Hello,

There are some interesting challenges that you might have fun trying out.

Look at them over here:
Challenge #13 - Can you find the key?: http://reboot.pro/15330/
Challenge #14 - Find the right key of this rude program: http://reboot.pro/15335/
Challenge #15 - Dedicated to BDV: http://reboot.pro/15363/

Also interesting would be knowing your opinion about this dilemma: http://reboot.pro/15373/

There have been plenty of fresh app scripts posted on the download center that you might have interest to take a look: http://reboot.pro/files/ with a recommendation for the new version of TotalMounter http://reboot.pro/fi...4-totalmounter/

Have a safe week!

I didn't get the newsletter mailed to my mailbox though I have "Send me any updates sent by the community administrator" option checked in my profile.

Hello,

I know that the newsletter is being sent as I've received several copies at my inbox from some accounts that I registered with my email address.

Are you receiving any other messages whatsoever from reboot?

@Nuno
There was an unusual delivery delay in the delivery of newsletter mail. I received it in my inbox around three hours after reporting the issue.

It is normal as the site only delivers 100 newsletters per minute and older members get the message first.

Since your account number is around 40 000 then you have to wait around 6 hours until it arrives on your inbox.

So, member was_jaclaz shold have a distinctive advantage :smiling9: over new members....
I wonder if he could use this (something like futures trading or the like). ;)

:rofl:


To be fair, the newsletter addresses should be piped through a randomizer of some sort..... :whistling:

Perhaps using the services offered here. (http://www.random.org/)

Not really needed:

Perhaps you have wondered how predictable machines like computers can generate randomness. In reality, most random numbers used in computer programs are pseudo-random, which means they are a generated in a predictable fashion using a mathematical formula. This is fine for many purposes, but it may not be random in the way you expect if you're used to dice rolls and lottery drawings.

Normal pseudo-random is more than enough for the intended scope (and for most anything else, INCLUDING dice rolls and lottery drawings, in practice).
It is true that:

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance

but with any pseudo-random generator, having only one generation per week, you will have anyway enough weeks available before anyone detects a pattern.
Please also note that the fact that a pattern is detected does not inficiate the distribution of results. (which is what is needed to be "fair")
