Comments on the simulation from de Raedt

Discussing the model from de Raedt with Antony Crofts he suggested to check the fraction that was actually counted in the simulation. To my surprise the time window implemented by de Raedt causes the program to use only 0.9% from the total result set.

So, yes, the model produces the quantum expectation, but the simulation does not mimic the results obtained by Weihs et al. (2), on which the simulation is based, because the simulation leaves out much more 'clicks' in comparison to the actual experiment.

Imo. this should have been mentioned in the findings of de Raedt (1).
