For example, here's a histogram of all the files on my C drive, by last modified time:


Any other examples you might have? Razz

That's actually not meaningless, it precisely tells me when you use your computer.

No, the vast majority of those files are either Windows files or program files, most of which preserve their last modified time (i.e. last modified time is when the file was actually made, not when it was copied to the computer).

Also the inconsistency between "OK" and "Ok" on that last comic strip irritates me.

I think it's because each comes from a different person and every person has a different kind of diction.

Sine of Tangent of X:

Sin(Tan(X)).

That was the only thing I could think of as being meaningless.


I made a python script awhile ago to make charts from my IRCCloud logs.


My calculator game releases since 2001

There aren't any units on the Y axis, so I assume this is estimated wiener quotient or something.
Since Kerm has the most of this whatever-score, obviously, more is better. So no worries Tari, we normal folks are more or less in the middle of this graph. Not too good, but not too bad either! Razz
Lower is better I think.
How about a random "function"? Razz

This got me thinking, is this even a function? Sure each input gave a single output, but asking the calculator to graph it again given the same input function will result in a different output...

EDIT: I had not thought very hard about how these numbers were generated and have been enlightened by Nik Razz indeed, assuming the seed is part of the input, then there is nothing very special about these graphs! Although in a more hypothetical non-calculator related instance where no seed is needed and random numbers are plucked out of thin air, then such a graph would be entirely meaningless Razz
makes me think the topic should have been titled RANDOM graphs Wink
Here's a meaningless graph for you!

Assuming the seed of the rand function is part of the input, you will have the same output for the same input.
Well now that SFPT has begun rolling that ball...

I remember once making a Tunnel game that used randomized graph equations to draw roads.
Have a look at this Graph!
