20:37 ascott hello. I think I have something interesting to contribute to the wiki but wanted to check if people here think it's a good idea: the "Token Bucket" algorithm. I could not find anything on the site. The closest I found was Rate_counter. I had to code a token bucket, recently, and have two examples: one in perl and one in pseudo-code uml, plus lots of references. Should this get it's own Task page or should it be filed somewh
20:37 ascott ere else, or maybe not at all? What do you think?
20:37 ascott http://stackoverflow.com/questions/667508/whats-a-good-rate-limiting-algorithm
20:37 ascott http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Token_bucket
20:37 fedaykin "Token bucket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia"
20:37 fedaykin "python - What s a good rate limiting algorithm? - Stack Overflow" http://rldn.net/XGPV
20:52 mwn3d_phone ascott: if you find code somewhere else that isn't yours there are license concerns to think about before you put it on RC
20:53 mwn3d_phone It seems like a nice idea for a task
20:54 ascott okay. hmm. I kind of wrote my own version. the solution came from that stackoverflow link though. seems pretty fundamental, just doesn't have a representative in the wiki yet.
20:54 mwn3d_phone If you want to add it just add {{draft task}} to the page before the description. We can help you form it into a good task after that.
20:54 ascott okay. sweet. that's the guidance I was looking for. thank you.
20:55 mwn3d_phone When you create it just start watching its talk page and you can come in and answer questions we have about intentions and such
20:55 ascott okay. that sounds perfect.
20:56 mwn3d_phone You can add a little description of the algorithm and a link to WP and then describe the setup you want people to make
20:56 mwn3d_phone Maybe try to come up with a way to verify the solutions
20:56 mwn3d_phone Its ok if its a little nebulous to start. We will help it along.
20:57 ascott awesome. I've got a lot of that already, actually. it was a neat, new algorithm to play with. I'm a fan of rosettacode and use it often.
20:58 mwn3d_phone Always good to hear from fans :)
