NTP and genetic algorithms

The pfSense box now syncs to the NTP pool. The service doesn’t show up under services, which made it confusing. It’s running now though. All machines on the network sync to it. This is nice because they’re all synced and I suppose there’s less bandwidth usage although I wasn’t getting the feeling it was a bandwidth how anyway.

I’ve found, thanks to Reddit, this mezmerizing implementation of a genetic algorithm. The purpose is to get a vehicle that consists of four circles, two of which are wheels and two that cannot touch the ground, to go as far as possible in a seemingly set time. Suspension, angle, length, and stating position of the circles (I suppose through angle) are varied, as well as circle size. It’s really interesting and is making me seriously concider starting a project of my own in this nature.
