Re: New [table], [tr], [th], [td] bbCodes

It was even worse than that, I realized: it would affect every table on the same page, including others'. I did a bit of experimentation with generating random IDs for each table to scope their styles, but then I couldn't reliably find the right table to tag with that ID. And I also tried generating...

Re: Autosaving

Just used Typio to recover what I lost after a reset mentioned here logged me out. It was my first time using it, but it worked great.

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

I'm guessing you had it recomputing the log of every prime every time you called it. No, they were hardcoded. Not even computed up front, just checked in as source code. That's not equivalent to what you wrote above. Agreed. I did a bad job of confirming my understanding the first time around. I sh...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

I assume you have a function that takes a monzo and gives cents. All you need to do in there is multiply each monzo term by the correct constant, and sum all those products. The correct constant multiplier for the prime-p term is lb(p)*1200, but you don't code it in such a way that it is computing ...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

Then what is the reason [for considering log-product complexity rather than product complexity]? Sorry to make you spell it out. Only the perhaps-too-obvious fact that, in enumerating the commas with the same prime content above 3, between [0⟩ and the comma being named, no matter which order you do...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

But why take the log at all? Isn't it simpler to just leave it like that? Then you could say the complexity ranking is simply the product complexity of the ratio, 3-smoothed. In fact you can go one better in the simple-description stakes and drop the "3-smoothed". And I already did say th...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

And we're ranking commas with the same prime content above 3, so all that matters is the 2 abs(2_exponent) × 3 abs(3_exponent) part. And when you take the log of that you get abs(2_exponent) + lb(3)×abs(3_exponent). I assume you meant to write "2 abs(2_exponent) × 3 abs(3_exponent) ", wit...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

Thanks for all this. I don't think you've missed anything. I see what you mean about my earlier example. Comparing the two commas, in upward form: [-84 53 0 -1 2 0 -1⟩ [84 -53 0 -1 2 0 -1⟩ Their 3-exponents have different signs, while my more recent example's two commas, in upward form: [-15 12 -2 -...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

Alright. I thought my proposals didn't create ambiguities, but I was wrong. Since in this context we conventionally use single-letter abbreviations (elsewhere I had gotten accustomed to using 2-letter abbreviations), we actually can't use "h" as the abbreviated form of "half" (li...

Re: Naming commas and other intervals: a compilation of various sources

Additional question re: comma naming. So I've found I have a need to regularly refer to the half apotome. In code, I have a precise representation of its value. However, when I want to give it as an input, currently the only way for me to provide it is in the form of cents. I don't have its cents am...
