I can therefore feel some confidence in the program, and the lesson it teaches: that when dealing with random events, coincidences are much more likely than might be intuitive. Nice work jsmaje.

Re: Repeat movies

If there are 700,000 movies, then how are we getting so many repeats? There'll only be 700,000 movies once all the aerogel tiles have been scanned. Up until a few days ago they'd only done about a fifth of them, so we've been seeing the same recycled movies (hence the frequent repeats) for about 3 ...

Re: Repeat movies

Hi looping, The movies are served up at random. Yes, we will get the same one sometimes. I have clicked twice on the same movie 11 times. One movie (862370V1) was clicked on three times.

Why not point to the track in a calibrate movie I get wrong?

Why not point to the track in a calibrate movie I get wrong?

I apologize if the answer is here somewhere, but I have spent some time searching the forum without finding the answer to this question.
