On the archihecture of @HectorTheFrog:
David: *says hect rather than hects*
David: (on the subject of which, I’ve just turned up hector’s tweet rate)
Victoria: How fast can he hect now?
David: So the way it works is that there are two parameters that control when he hects: At a fixed rate he thinks “Should I hect?”, and given that he is wondering whether to hect there is a certain chance of him hecting.
David: He was previously making hectsisions once an hour and had a one in fifteen chance of hecting. I’ve changed it so that he’s still hectemplating only once an hour but instead had a one in 7 burble chance
David: So he can hect once every hour, but he’ll probably hect about once every 7 hours.
David: (ask a simple question, get an overly hectnical answer :-) )
Victoria: oh my god that’s the most adorable hectnical answer ever
