Hi Stephen,
I have a problem here.  I was surprised about the high score I have in your stats.  Using M$ Word with "results.dat", I estimated my stats to be actually around half as high as indicated in your rankings.  Of course, I cannot exclude that somebody else simulates under my name - but it's unlikely.  So, I suspect a problem with your stats "engine".
Well, the more important thing is that since I use v4.21b, there is no correct recording of the BEST simulation results.  I have submitted various data that have better values than 0.3 but still the best value indicated under my user name is around 0.28. I don't know the reason for this.  Of course, I won't drop dead because of this, however, I just wanted to let you know.  Maybe it is important for your system...

Cheers & all the best,
Michael.

File glitch.  Back when you were using 4.2, something wrote a load of NULLS to your results file.  This could have also been caused by the FTP server conflict situation prior to 4.21. I've removed it now and hopefully your stats on the next update should be corrected.

Ok.  Thanks for the info.  I have just uploaded some more results.  Let's see.  However, I have always checked ALL "results.txt" and "results.dat" files prior to any uploading of results (with ALL Mµon versions I ever used).  They NEVER contained multiple NULL entries.  So I conclude that this must have happened during upload.  Although even here I NEVER encountered any error message or something alike.

Cheers,
Michael.

Ok.  I have recognized that my best stats value has changed.  Anyhow - I have never simulated that result.  It is ranking # 6th now - worldide!  Value is 0.648476. My "results.dat" does not contain this value at any place - I checked it using M$ Word again.  If you later rely on these stats tables to decide which participants have generated the best parameter settings, I fear you might have a problem.  Please check this in detail.  Of course, I can still not guarantee that someone else is working under my name whom I am not aware of.

Here it is, if you want to use it in your results.dat big grin

I think this was a 4.2 "results.txt getting uploaded by two different people at the same time" error - you got a small segment of someone else's results.  This was starting to happen more frequently with increased usage, and that's why I rewrote parts of the uploader for v4.21.

Wow, the BBS software doesn't half screw up this thread.  (The messages above Stephen's long reply are right aligned way off the screen on IE 6.0)

My 22" CRT at 1600x1200 only displays about 4cm of text on the right!!  It would be nice if the long line of text was wrapped without me having to insert carriage returns.
