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)|
This has been discussed in this forum. My advice is given in http://hypernews.slac.stanford.edu/HyperNews/geant4/get/runmanage/264/1.html
Comparing pseudo-random number generators is either easy or very difficult. If you just want to know that it works and does not have any obvious flaws, that's easy. To quantitatively compare them in detail is hard. The Geant4 default (from CLHEP) is an excellent generator, and by seeding it with the event number you can make it easy to run many statistically independent jobs in parallel by simply arranging they use non-overlapping sequences of event numbers (which you probably need to do anyway).
