But I still dont get the difference between the dash and check option of HoochieBaby...
Update: Thank you for your nice answer!
My 2nd problem is that I dont understand how Anki (without the HoochieBaby) determines the order of learning cards.
While just trying to figure it out I noticed that similar “groups” of cards seem to get presented together again. My steps (in minutes) are 3 10 1440. And Anki jumps (the moment I have done all my new cards and revise cards) between the learning cards with the 10 min and the 1440 min interval, while keeping the above mentioned “groups” somehow together, so its on the one side not an order (by interval) on the other side its not randomized.
So my question is: Is HoochieBaby's Randomizing function still necessary? (dont get me wrong here, the mix between new - learning - revise function alone is worth the addon)
Dash just randomizes lrn cards. Study order depends on anki's review timer.
Check is for new-lrn-rev, you know, those blue-red-green numbers.
Study order: 1N,1L,2R - 2N,1L,1R - 1N,2L,3R etc...
re2Update1: So you want to talk to the organ grinder now... Ok, here goes.
The difference is pre- and post-randomization. Think of it as rolling a dice and recording the numbers. Every time you check the histories, the records are the same. Because it's already recorded, this becomes a fixed-point in time. The Hoochie addons modify it so that every time you check, the records changes. It randomizes the numbers in the histories at the time of review. This comes at the cost of high CPU and battery usage.
That being said, for HoochieBaby, I question whether the benefits are placebos. Most users would not notice the difference or benefit.
Huge thanks for updating this add-on to 2.1.35! You are too kind for this world, I would have probably kept trolling in your position, or added a cryptolocker :P What do I do with my incremental writing cards now?
I know dae's livelihood depends on this project, so using those tools for a joke would be unethical.
But a question, would it be possible to extend the time limit for intra day learning I.E. have it be at 2440 rather than 1440 or is this hard wired into Anki?
Will the add-on randomize over due learning steps that cross the day threshold? So I do a 2 hr step at 2:00pm and then tomorrow morning at 9:00am I start doing cards again, would this be randomized or not? essentially I am trying to randomize only my 3rd learning step which I have set to 3 days, other steps are 25, 1440 for reference. Thanks.
1) What does "cards that didn't make it to the day cutoff time" mean? Does it mean cards that are left over when you didn't go through your cards fast enough so some cards you would've seen today would instead be scheduled by Anki for the next day? (I don't know if that's what Anki actually does.)
2) What if I have cards currently waiting on a 360 step BUT I haven't returned to Anki for more than a day? Do those cards count as day-learning cards? (I have a 360 step because I want the option to do reviews later in the same day, although I usually do Anki only once a day.)
