Re: Just occurred to me
If you're measuring something that is periodic and predictable then you may be able to do that. But if it's periodic and predictable why are you measuring it?
If the signal isn't periodic and predictable, then the longest sample period ( lowest frequency) of your non-regular interval needs to be half the period ( or twice the frequency ) of the signal change that you are interested in, otherwise you will run the risk of missing something.
I have a vague memory of some kind of plug-in for doom ( or wolfenstein 3d ? ) which added Doctor Who themed graphics to the game - replaced the gun with a sonic screwdriver, aliens/nazis with daleks etc.
Those kind of fast-moving arcade-style games fit in better with how the show feels now, rather than 'classic' Who, which seems better suited to a puzzle solving 'myst' style of game.
Maybe an adventure game to find and unlock the 'lost episodes', with points scored for esoteric Who knowledge would be just the ticket for the older fans?
last windows version released last friday (18-10-13 )
I believe 'auto updating' was one of the things they turned off - the idea being that it shouldn't be doing stuff in the background that the user isn't aware of..
I've used it for a while, not seen any issues with it, but dunno if it does quite as much privacy-wise as aviator claims to do.
Re: I've not even looked at the multiplayer yet.
Does anyone know if he's looked at the multiplayer yet?
Re: Or you can roll your own :)
Indeed.. and here, with the rest of his chums:
John Cooper Clarke
would be cool but I'm doubtful he could much of yer actual acting
Failing that an unknown face that can make the part his/her own - the more well known will bring too much baggage to the role.
From the data in the report, it's not just that the risk is significantly higher on Fridays & weekends, it gradually increases from the lowest point on Monday.
The report lumps Saturday & Sunday together, which doesn't help, but if poorer care over the weekend was a significant cause, I'd expect Friday to be worse than Sunday, which doesn't seem to be the case.
Perhaps minor ops that happen toward the end of the week have a tendency to be pushed to the start of the following week, surgeons being unwilling to give up their weekends unless they have to, resulting in the figures being skewed by the percentage of serious/non-serious cases done on each day?
Is this really very different from using gelatin in ice cream?
As wikipedia tells it, "Gelatin is derived from pork skins, pork, horses, and cattle bones, or split cattle hides"
Or how about finings used to clear wine & beer - often ground up swim bladders from fish?
Re: Samsung exclusivity for ITV?
I'm taking this as 'if you're going to get an android thing, the samsung flavour is the one most likely to be supported'
As for fragmentation in the Android market - haven't we all been here several times before?

Don't mention p*o-p*o-ing where Lester might see - That diet of rice and chickpeas has got to have some serious consequences...
I give you: "A Fully Integrated RF-Powered Contact Lens With a Single Element Display'
If the kilogram standard is now heavier than it was, that must mean that I now weigh less kilograms than I used to. Hurrah for basing weight measurements on an physical object.
Now, can we do something to get the metre back to a physical object as well? - preferably one that also increases. After Christmas my waistline badly needs a re-definition of standards.
'1 million and 2.5 million °K'
Degrees Kelvin? Degrees Kelvin?
Extending the scenario so that we have lots of hydrogen factories situated near big water sources, and each of these factories shipping the hydrogen ( via hydrogen powered transport ) to where it is needed - i.e. the big cities of the world...
Whether we 'burn' the hydrogen, or use it in a fuel cell, it will produce water as an 'exhaust' - effectively moving water from the hydrogen factory to the middle of the city - giving us reduced oxygen and permanent cloud over each of our cities.
Lots of grant money will then be needed for the climate boffins to figure out the new number of ways in which the world is doomed!
Umm... date of the article?
Picky Picky Picky
If we're being picky here, velocity is also a vector - speed is a scalar. So while the speed of light (in vacuum) is a constant, the velocity aint necessarily so
What time ?
Any idea what time on Saturday? Only I'm supposed to be going to a Christian wedding that day, and it would be handy if we could arrange the rapture before, say 10am please, just so I don't waste the whole day..
condom, toilet roll & gaffer tape
Insert a condom into used toilet roll. Inflate the condom, until it is nice and snug, then seal one end with gaffer tape.
As the air pressure decreases, the condom will inflate, and the tip will push out of the open end of the roll. Position a release switch an appropropriate distance away, and wait for the condom to achieve the appropriate erection...
