If I write my own search program, can I add it to the LifeWiki search programs page?
That would be pretty clearly against the LifeWiki:Notability#General_notability_guideline (now that I've just added "programs" to the list of things that inventors shouldn't be adding to the LifeWiki!). But someone else could do it, if the program proved to be useful for finding something new and interesting.

Most likely the program would just get mentioned and linked in the article describing the Something New And Interesting, though.

So I was forced to reboot my PC after text rendering gave up (Example: Blank right-click menus). Why are all my golly settings wiped? >:(

You can always make a backup copy of your GollyPrefs file. Golly settings that were set during the current Golly session will not be saved if Golly isn't closed properly before rebooting. Older settings shouldn't be affected unless the GollyPrefs file is damaged.

Some of these settings were set back in 2017, and were wiped too.

Therefore your GollyPrefs file was damaged or removed. Go find your GollyPrefs file and see what happened to it.

Then, when you've set all your settings the way you want it, email a copy of your GollyPrefs file to yourself, so that this kind of thing doesn't happen again.

How do I use git to download the octohash database only?
This does not work:

Code: Select all

$ git clone https://github.com/dvgrn/b3s23life/tree/master/12x12-1G-octohash.git
正克隆到 '12x12-1G-octohash'...
fatal: repository 'https://github.com/dvgrn/b3s23life/tree/master/12x12-1G-octohash.git/' not found

This is not really something git was originally designed for, but apparently it is possible.
https://stackoverflow.com/a/52269934 has more information than you'll ever want to know.

That's a really good question, and a really good answer.

An even better answer is that the octohash database doesn't belong in the b3s23life repository in the first place. I've moved it to a separate octohash repository. Will probably add more subfolder eventually, whenever I or someone gets around to rebuilding the 3G database in octohash form.

Thanks, So now it works like

Code: Select all

$ git clone https://github.com/dvgrn/octohash.git
Cloning into 'octohash'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 7, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (7/7), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (7/7), done.
Unpacking objects: 13% (5/36)
And from this on I didn't see any obvious changes anywhere, and I pressed ctrl+c. Is it stuck, or just downloading terribly slowly? Any speed estimations?
(I guess after solving these issues we can go and expand tutorials/glider_sythesis)

Yeah, that could be healthy, depending on your Internet speed. I'd advise _not_ cloning that database if you can help it -- try downloading the ZIP file instead, as the README says -- and let me know if that doesn't work. The option is under the Code button > Download ZIP.

The reason to not clone the repository is that then you get all the repository history brought over to your local machine... which includes the larger deleted version of the octohash database with the lifelib dependency. When git is transferring all that information, it probably doesn't update its processing status very well, because it isn't actually downloading any (currently visible) files.

Downloading just a ZIP file avoids that problem. I'm testing that method out right now, and it looks like it will be done in a maybe ten or fifteen minutes. It comes out to 597,604KB.

It's also possible to use git clone to just get what's currently in the repo. This is called a shallow clone.

Code: Select all

git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/dvgrn/octohash.git
Then if further octohash files are added to the repo it should be possible to fetch just those new files with the usual "git pull".
If you make local changes that interact with old history then that can cause problems, but that seems pretty unlikely in this case.

This method is possibly well suited to the current b3s23life repo which now contains all of the history of creating and deleting those octohash files :(

@dvgrn perhaps you'd consider a bit of history rewriting to expunge all those now deleted large files from the b3s23life repo's history. That doesn't come without some risk and potential issues for collaborators (just simsim314 and myself) but I think it would be worth it.

Two relevant SO questions with very helpful answers:
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/210 ... repository
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/106 ... it-history
But you'll probably want to have a look at some official documentation too. On the plus side, if something stuffs up you can always check out the current repo again (up until you've force pushed the changes that remove the history! ;))

Potential issues is right. I knew that removing those files from the repository history would be the Right Thing To Do, so I had already done some investigation. My first conclusion was that really understanding everything about the process well enough to be able to fix whatever errors would probably come up, was a matter of days or weeks, not just hours.

However, with your message to push me in the direction of virtuous Git repo maintenance behavior, I tried this -- just experimentally removing one of the twenty files I need to remove:

It started out not looking too bad, but then stopped in the middle, so I have no idea now what the actual state of the repo is. 'git status' says everything is up to date.

Next I might just try re-cloning the repo and see if I can operate on a totally fresh copy any better. Also might look into using the suggested https://github.com/newren/git-filter-repo/.

If you search at widths higher than 10, then ntzfind uses lots of RAM (I can't remember the exact numbers but it's around 3.5G for w 10 and each increase by 1 to the width requires about 2.5 times more RAM). If you run out of RAM on your system then it will appear to freeze while it thrashes about trying to free up a bit of space until ultimately ntzfind crashes.

@dvgrn perhaps you'd consider a bit of history rewriting to expunge all those now deleted large files from the b3s23life repo's history. That doesn't come without some risk and potential issues for collaborators (just simsim314 and myself) but I think it would be worth it.
FYI, for whom it may concern: I tried following half a dozen different sets of instructions to remove the large deleted files from dvgrn/b3s23life repo history, to get back to where it would be reasonable to clone the repository again.

The first several things I tried failed with mysterious errors that the instructions didn't mention.

The next couple of things I tried didn't give errors, but also failed to reduce my local .git folder to 110MB. It stayed stubbornly at 1.36GB or thereabouts.

Eventually I had overspent my time budget for this project by about a factor of ten, so I moved on to the emergency option that I knew would be quick and easy. The b3s23life repo has now been re-created from scratch, minus all of its checkin history. I've also moved a fair number of little-used larger files out of the repo, so it's down to 10MB instead of 110MB. I'll check these files back in to separate repositories when I get around to it, but probably no one will miss them anyway.

Anyone who currently has a clone of dvgrn/b3s23life should please consider deleting it and re-cloning from GitHub -- it won't take nearly as long now!

FYI, for whom it may concern: I tried following half a dozen different sets of instructions to remove the large deleted files from dvgrn/b3s23life repo history, to get back to where it would be reasonable to clone the repository again.

The first several things I tried failed with mysterious errors that the instructions didn't mention.

The next couple of things I tried didn't give errors, but also failed to reduce my local .git folder to 110MB. It stayed stubbornly at 1.36GB or thereabouts.

Eventually I had overspent my time budget for this project by about a factor of ten, so I moved on to the emergency option that I knew would be quick and easy. The b3s23life repo has now been re-created from scratch, minus all of its checkin history. I've also moved a fair number of little-used larger files out of the repo, so it's down to 10MB instead of 110MB. I'll check these files back in to separate repositories when I get around to it, but probably no one will miss them anyway.

Anyone who currently has a clone of dvgrn/b3s23life should please consider deleting it and re-cloning from GitHub -- it won't take nearly as long now!
I am already missing all the deleted files.

Since I somehow have the notion that I will have All Eternity to sort it all out, and be a proper Archival Curator

I have been asking ( the wind ? ) for the TerraBhyte TarBall - I want it ALL - going insane grabbing all the little its 'n bits -

@ dvgrn - now I do know of all your time and effort expended in the field of CGoL ( new UC multi-diagonal style 2E CorderShip State-of-the-Art )

BUT

I DO NOT WANT YOU TO DELETE ANYTHING ( patterns and scripts - love letters IDC )

so hey, how about I send you a super huge USB flash drive and the next time you get the urge to delete...

( or I could PayPal you cash - does $200.00 sound about right to you ? )

and a standing request to everybody else - I WANT EVERYTHING YOU'VE GOT !

this is a hedge against a DoomsDay Scenario - I am very well hedged...

Thank You for Your Interest !

Cheers !

No need for a flash-drive solution, I think. The old b3s23life repository is still available temporarily under the name b3s23life_old. I wouldn't advise messing around with that repo any more, though, at least unless you read up first on doing a "shallow clone" with git -- get the content but not all the history.

I believe I've also checked in all the content that I removed from the new b3s23life, into separate repositories. The only two relevant ones are

https://github.com/dvgrn/conwaylife-data
https://github.com/dvgrn/glider-collisions

(and those aren't terribly relevant, except you might like the all-extracted-patterns file -- a 7Zip archive of every pattern posted to the forums up until last December 15th.)

I'll be removing the b3s23life_old repo eventually, but I'm not in any particular hurry about it.

I usually avoid the Scripts subforum (this is way out of my area), but I need to know what part of Cygwin lifelib.add_cygdir()'s requesting (the bin folder or?), or I could install Cygwin again but seriously?

(Alternatively, could somebody tell me how to install Debian without a USB or DVD?)
