Oh man! You are so right. What was I thinking? And yet I believe Ash's idea still survives, despite my wrong explanation.cmloegcmluin wrote: ↑Wed May 27, 2020 11:39 amSo consider . Its mina represents 3136/3135 which is 0.552, about a tina higher than a mina. So you're saying that in the Insane precision level, the comma represents, the 49/55s, would get assigned to :@4: (maybe one day that'll turn into a Magrathean smilie for 4-tinas!)? But wouldn't that mean that we'd have to change the comma for to something else?
This feels kind of ass-backwards. Surely the other precision levels weren't developed this way. I thought lower levels, once locked in, were locked in. Unless the Extreme precision layer is different because it's the first layer where we don't really care enough about the commas we found for it and don't mind if they get booted to a later (higher) precision level. Or am I still not getting this?
I just thought that we were stuck with being the 49/55s, and even if that was more like 4 tinas than 3 tinas off from 's 19s, that's how it was, and we'd still be using it as our basis from which we'd deviate by tinas up and down.
However, there is something different about the extreme to insane step. We don't keep the accents from the lower level and merely add new types of accents. We replace the mina accents with tina accents. So we could be seen to be skipping the extreme level and jumping straight from very high to insane. But that's a conundrum for another day.
That idea doesn't survive. Complete nonsense, sorry.Back on the consistent 37 limit thread, you asked for me to "add commas that correspond to zero minas (preferably without requiring horizontal scroll bars)" to my table of attested values for minas. I can't figure out what you would mean by this.
Maybe.Or maybe "suboptimal" is basically the call of Chthulu in this context. Turn away!
