[solved] Selective sampling... with a ratio!?!? Help please!
Whilst I dislike melodrama such as I have typed in the title, I do need help (and this is not one that I will find the answer to in few minutes time...).
So here's the situation:
I have a collective resource of 100 word-pairs (split is: 60 not rhyming to 40 rhyming pairs), which I am aiming to use as an ongoing task. However I only want to use 50 of these per session, with pairs being 'randomly' selected every 2-3 seconds, whilst maintaining a 3:2 ratio for not rhyming to rhyming pairs. Oh, and individual pairs cannot be reused within a session (there will be 6 sessions overall, but this is somewhat irrelevant as the loop can be copied once written).
So essentially a session will consist of 50 word pairs (drawn from 100); 30 not rhyming and 20 rhyming. Being presented every 2/3 seconds. Psuedo-randomly of course!
At the moment I have: Loop --> sequence.... not very far at all.
Any help would be greatly appreciated - Please bear in mind I am oblivious to the world of programming languages...
