- Are you using a really good random number generator?

I applaud you for tackling this long standing scientific conundrum.

Thanks for your excellent suggestions. Increasing the accuracy is a good thing to aim for. However the main point of this site is fun/education rather than scientific discovery, so I don't want to make it too complex. It is not really the same thing as Folding@home and SETI@home, because the solution to the typing monkeys question is already known - it is a simple matter of probabilities.

Does it only check for the first letters/numbers? Or if there is a right anywhere does it count it?

It only checks up to the first incorrect letter.

Hi folks,

I've now figured out how to set up the email automatically with a button. It will be up soon.

Surely that thing can't be correct.. I get about as many 1-rights as I do 2-rights, but shoudn't I get about n times more 1-rights, where n is the number of different characters the monkeys can produce?

Good question. The answer is, actually, no.

Each bar in the graph is not an individual try, but the BEST single result from a whole day. The probability of a certain length after single attempt is not the same as the probability of getting a certain length after N attempts. As N increases, the probability of 2 letters increases accordingly.

Make it possible to submit the results via the applet and not by copying and pasting it into a mail.

I've looked into this, and I can't think of any way of doing it as my web host doesn't supply any services other than basic page hosting.

Is there a way to "pre-fill" an email from an applet? Clicking on an email address on an HTML page brings up an email (usually), but can the content be specified by the applet?

Have you considered making it along the lines of Folding@Home?

Yes, if there is enough interest. But at the moment I think having it on the web is a good first step.

Hi folks,

I'd welcome some comments on my new Monkey Shakespeare Simulator applet (and also on the web page that it is embedded in, as it is all part of the concept). What I'd like to know is:

1) Is it easy to understand what the applet/page does?

2) If not, which parts are tricky to grasp?

3) Do you have any suggestions for improvement?

Here's the URL:

Thanks in advance for your help!
