Not sure where *you're* coming from...
Geez I'm even older and I never did that. Encyclopaedia Britannica + Yellow Pages + BBS.
or maybe they should check who got fired in the last few months... or overlooked for a promotion.
Fun novel by James P Hogan about a sophisticated alien robotic space mining craft that gets damaged and crashes on Titan. It starts making defective replicating mining robots that eventually evolve into a medieval robot society.
Can't believe I'm the first to mention it, but I'm probably just old.
The unit you want is probably dB.
Oooh, and he has to wear a '70s track suit.
Get a better life.
I am amazed at the kind of scut work "engineers" do these days. Electrical engineers in the days of yore were scientists, physicists.
I used to work for a company that used label printers. I mean high-speed printers for production lines. These machines are all ready and set to go from the box. Why do you need someone to go to university for 4 years and go through three interviews to check a few wires, enter a few digits and look at the end result of the printed label?
You need engineers to design the machines, some engineers to mass-produce them, and technicians, not engineers, to install them.
I think of it as trying to apply a social model based on scarcity while we are awash in surplus.
I'd gladly trade my modern computer and phone for the lifestyle of the 1960s-1990s. Something happened quite recently to make work much more hostile and corrosive.
Who said there would be no punishment?
Can you explain why society didn't collapse when we went from the 19th century's 100 hour work week to the the 40 hour work week?
Can you explain what all this technology is for and what we are producing if we are all working so hard?
And why have we gone back to 19th century levels of "work" when both heads of the family work, it adds up to a hundred hour workweek.
Why? What for? Who benefits?
What is "work"? What do you do that convinces a farmer to feed you every day?
It's just a social convention.
Why can't we go to a 20 hour workweek? Why do you assume that every person is the same and will automatically revert to savagery just because they have to work less?
I'm the innocent one?
That's nice, so you think people are self-destructive by nature and no attempt should be made to have a rational social model, as long as the powerful get what they want, even if we're awash in surplus capacity and resources.
"It is simply not possible to get a full-wave 20kHz signal out of a standard 44kHz sample rate,"
What the hell are you babbling about? A 44.1KHz system is band-limited to 22KHz and you can ONLY get a sine wave out with two data points!
Jesus Christ already!
What does "full wave" mean anyways? Are you one of those types that throws technical-sounding jargon around without a clue?
Maybe to a mundane person, but anyone with at least the curiosity of a mollusc might try to understand something beyond the level of the UI.
And for the 50Hz/60Hz difference.
