It is also just more detailed, goes more thoroughly into the pros and cons of each content type (including being less dismissive of journalistic content and less worshipping the ground interesting content walks on) and sounds less like an advertisement. Now to get to some of the other stuff I've been meaning to do for ages.Comment on this - View comments still working just fine, the keyboard was somehow the cause of all the problems and they had to order a new keyboard from abroad which is taking a while to arrive.Like the fact that, despite there being no logical reason this should be the case, a sex strand originating from the genome dictates that it should be female.And the fact that it would have implied IV inheritance ought to be uneven.In addition to this, as I had mentioned, I rewrote the Kinds of Content section.The biggest change is that there are now six types of content rather than five; I decided (after my little ramble about reviews in Sections that Suck) that actually entertaining content deserves to be considered a content type of its own instead of lumping it in with interesting content.Here, you can read all the updates on this site since October 25th 2003 and some of the ones from September and August 2003 - the site has been around since November 2nd 2002, but unfortunately most of the updates from the first year were never archived. First off, in a couple of places the implications it had were simply wrong.Be advised that some links might take you to outdated sections or something else that has been taken off the site - I do not necessarily endorse the content of any such sections. The old explanation of Azurill and Marill's different sex ratios would have meant that they were completely independent: some male Azurill would turn into female Marill, which is not the case.
There is one in the real-world examples section for low catch rates (Mewtwo) and one in the section for high catch rates (Nidoran).Comment on this - View comments For the benefit of those who don't follow my Twitter, I thought I should explain here that the other day my laptop started acting up just when I was going to finish the new fake Pokémon guide.It's currently being repaired, which could take about a week; don't expect anything of substance to get done in the meanwhile, as trying to access the site files from Shadey's place without my laptop would be a bother (I'm currently updating from home, but I'm barely ever home) and instead I've just been spending my time rewatching Boston Legal and reading Penn and Teller books.And the fact that, despite there being no crossover between genes in the maternal and paternal genomes of any Pokémon, somehow they were supposed to stay compatible and consistent enough to produce perfectly equivalent sex strands. The new theory is more complicated, but also makes more sense and benefits from the fact I know more about genetics than I did when I made up the original.I'm going to add a bit to the fan theory guide, hopefully tomorrow, using the new genetics theory as an example to illustrate the process, but right now I'm tired and should go to bed.I'm thinking about updating that section to have graphs to illustrate some of the calculations in the mathy bit. Comment on this - View comments You are now just one year from a ten-year career. Today was also, by a beautiful coincidence, the day I finally got my laptop back. It is about five gazillion times more helpful than the old one, largely because it is now actually centered around giving advice instead of making a couple of tips and then padding itself out with stat and move tables for eleven silly fakes.Despite this, I know that there will probably be people who will insist that they want to read the old one, so yes, fine, it's still around.Comment on this - View comments Somebody pointed out an off-by-one error on my R/B/Y capture algorithm page (a less than should have been a less than or equal to, and as a result C in the probability formula should have been C 1), so I went through it all again fixing that and updating the various calculations as well as the catch rate calculator accordingly.The real-world significance of this is basically that Pokémon with low catch rates are a little easier to catch under all circumstances than the page originally stated. Or, to put it in terms that don't include stilted poetry, The Cave of Dragonflies is nine years old today.Maybe I can go through some affiliation requests on Shadey's laptop.Comment on this - View comments And the Morphic extra I promised, "Dave and Mia Discuss Hotdogs", is up.
