comment What are the differences and benefits of different string similarity measures
@gnat that's a troll-level comment and not at all helpful to my question, which is asking about which applications different string similarity algorithms have.

@MarcGravell thanks, any idea as to why other than it not being in the spec?

comment Is there a typical way of having a view that is a dependent on another?
@psr yes, absolutely. I guess I am just left to a single view with a bunch of conditional statements. It's actually pretty simple if I think about it.

comment Why is it impossible to produce truly random numbers?
I don't agree that a truly random number is philosophical. A number can't be random, but a sequence of numbers can be. The way my prof who taught me this phrased it was "is 2 random?" It's a nonsensical question. So for a sequence of numbers to be random, there is a definition that is accepted in information theory. The definition of a random sequence is that it is the shortest definition of itself. E.g. you can't compress the data in it at all.
