You would have to know the program is running.
So no sneak factor would be possible in that respect.
Plus, possibly, setting the 'flash cards' on a timer,
never heard of a random timer, but it could be here somewhere.-cmpm (June 20, 2011, 08:51 AM)
For a program like that, I'd have the user set a minimum and maximum time between displays, then each time it is displayed, I'd calculate a new time inside of that interval.-Renegade (June 20, 2011, 08:54 AM)
Yes - that's what I was thinking of here - the question selection is 'random' (selecting from a list of possible questions that I can input) and the timing is based on 'not within a minimum period' but 'not exceeding a maximum period'. For example, a question is posed within say 15 and 45 minute intervals (not evenly spaced)...
Depending on whether I get a question right or wrong I then mark the question in some way that then impacts on how frequently that same question is asked. If I answer a question correctly it goes to the bottom of the list and gets asked again perhaps three or four days later.
Thanks for the discussion about this guys!
