Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
What I do is split the events into different runs, and combine the results afterward. I always seed the random number generator with the event number and clear the state of RanGauss, so all I need to do is make sure that different runs use a different series of event numbers. I of course need a program to combine the output files from multiple runs into a single output file.
My program has command-line arguments to set the first and last event numbers to process, and a simple shell script runs multiple jobs in parallel on a cluster with sequential first and last event numbers (typically enough events to take about 1 hour per job). This would also work for a series of runs on a single machine, as you describe.
Obviously this avoids having to try to "checkpoint" each event, and then "restart" them later.
